Random Observations

  • Went from home wifi to work 1x, disconnected and reconnected when got to work. Noticed message about channel I do not auto-join in server status scene, and then returnValue: 0 after some mode events. --Egaudet 20:47, 5 November 2009 (UTC)
  • Need to remove some unreadable colors from nick autocolor --en0x 19:52, 5 November 2009 (UTC)
  • Need to add notification options sound/vibrate/notification --en0x 19:52, 5 November 2009 (UTC)
  • Do we really need motd from irc server? --en0x 19:52, 5 November 2009 (UTC)
  • In server window I would like to see what channels I have joined instead of going thru every card --en0x 19:52, 5 November 2009 (UTC) ---Is separate cards for each channel/user really the best layout usage? Just an idea, but would maybe a dropdown menu from the top right to switch between all of them, and then just one card for each server work best?Jhoff80 --- I think this could be set via preferences, but maybe you would simply display a list of all channels/private messages belonging to a server when it is tapped, as well as a status option, instead of having multiple cards. Then you'd just use the back gesture to switch, with perhaps the option of detaching specific channels/querys into their own cards. Tlp 06:09, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
  • Is it possible to change the default colors if using the Palm-Dark theme? Most of the default colors blend into the background. I know you can change them manually but it might make sense to automatically change if you switch to Dark. --Jhoff80 06:53, 10 November 2009 (UTC)
  • I imagine it's a long shot, but what would it be possible to get SSL capability on this? It'd be awesome to be able to connect to my work IRC server (Also, great work in creating this program). --jmquinn 15:00, 11 November 2009 (UTC)
  • The /quote command is required by most Undernet servers for users without identd. Since identd is not possible on Sprint servers (I'm told), this command is essential for Undernet users. --Guinness 19:36, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
  • /mode does not work on Undernet. Commands tested are /mode <nick> +i & /mode <nick> +x, which respectively are supposed to set "invisible" user mode & hide a user's IP address. --Guinness 02:00, 23 November 2009 (UTC)
  • It'd be nice if "No such Nick/Channel" and "Disconnected" messages would show in the active card, so that you can see when the person you're PMing gets disconnected or when you get disconnected without checking the status card. --jhoff8002:41, 02 December 2009 (UTC)
  • When setting wIRC to do a command on connect (especially for /msg NickServ identify <pass>) do we really need a card to pop up with that message? --jhoff8002:42, 02 December 2009 (UTC)

Possible bugs

  • Connected to two IRC networks, one channel on each, and only one was being updated with channel activity. Connection was live, because text could still be sent to the channel from wIRC and received by other IRC users. Tlp 21:46, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
  • If channel name is too long, modes (e.g. +ntr) appear on a second line right on top of in-channel text jhoff80 04:23, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
  • On servers which use ~ and % for types of status preceding a user's name, wIRC sees it as part of the username (therefore things like a whois from the menu do not work - says no such server) jhoff80 04:23, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
    • What do ~ and % stand for? --oil 05:24, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
      • Not sure, checking on Mibbit it seems like ~ is maybe the owner of the room, & is the admin, and % is the half-op? Not really sure though, sorry. jhoff80 06:14, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
        • Yes, ~ is channel founder/owner, & is super operator/administrator, and % is half operator on most networks. There should only be one ~ in any channel at any given time to my knowledge. SineOtter 06:36, 17 November 2009 (UTC)
          • Same problem was found with & prefix. ~ = Channel Owner (+q), & = Channel Admin (+a), @ = Op (+o), % = Half-Op (+h), + = Voice (+v) KBLOM 22:12, 20 November 2009 (UTC)
  • Messages containing special characters like ä, ö, ü are not shown at all, seems to be a unicode/utf8 problem --ThTs 01:25, 12 December 2009 (UTC)

Developer Responses

  • wIRC cycles through nick names even though there is no need for that (webOS 1.1.3)--nison 9:35, 11 November 2009 (UTC)
    • Nicks cycle when already in use only which is needed --Egaudet 18:06, 12 November 2009 (UTC)
  • In 0.0.2 only Orange key is needed for Nick Auto Complete, which can make typing contractions like "I'm" difficult to type. --Kyusaku 17:30, 8 November 2009 (UTC)
    • orange nick auto complete should only work while holding gesture. If it works by itself tap the gesture area once to get rid of the "stuck" gesture down it may be seeing --Egaudet 18:06, 12 November 2009 (UTC)
  • What about some channel logs? Save it to /media/internals as txt --en0x 12:46, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
    • Added to main wiki --Egaudet 18:06, 12 November 2009 (UTC)
  • "Error Reading the Control File" when trying to install the arm7 service on my Pre through WOSQI 2.72--FuManChuu 22:21, 5 November 2009 (UTC)
    • I believe this was a pre-release issue --Egaudet 18:06, 12 November 2009 (UTC)
  • User searching in nick list? --en0x 12:53, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
    • Implemented in 0.0.4 --oil 05:17, 15 November 2009 (UTC)
  • In notification area can we have on what channel somebody used our nick? "en0x: en0x-wIRC: test " is not enough... can we have something like "nick/#channel WIRC_USER: message" --en0x 19:46, 9 November 2009 (UTC)
    • Implemented in 0.0.4 (but it only displays the channel if you're in more then one.) --oil 05:17, 15 November 2009 (UTC)
  • WHOIS command is pretty important for me, anyone else? Especially in the absence of a notify list--Jhoff80 03:34, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
    • Implemented in 0.0.4 --oil 05:18, 15 November 2009 (UTC)
