OmnomIRC suggestions
« on: July 11, 2010, 06:51:48 pm »
Just to make it clear, OmnomIRC was not created by me. It was created by Netham45. He even has special admin priviledges on the forums, hence his different member group than the rest of the purple one. I am not a PHP, JS nor AJAX coder. This means that any OmnomIRC suggestions that can be asked here can only be answered by him.

Right now my suggestion would be the merging of the forum online list with the OmnomIRC one, making it refresh every minute instead of 20 seconds and have the SpyBot45 so when Netham45 connection dies, the bot automatically reboots, so it won't stop working for entire weeks. Also allowing individual members to disable OmnomIRC on cookie basis would be nice, so people on slow machines can browse the forums fine.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Update: sub-forum created for OmnomIRC. Read the sub-forum description for more info.

I think merging them and extending the refresh time would be good ideas. Also, being able to disable it completely would be nice, but doesn't it already do that when you hide it?

It is already merged actually :P

As for disabling OmnomIRC it would be nice in future versions actually.

Idea: Lower the refresh rate even more, but change it to, say, 500 ms when the focus is in the chat window.

Or maybe a refresh button.

That would be a bit CPU intensive I think. If we did that we would have to disable OmnomIRC by default for new joining members.

And aww, Netham45 edited my forum description D:

No I didn't.

I don't have access to that, unless I go muck around with the database(which is a good way to break stuff)

I couldn't do that that low.

I'm planning on rewriting a lot of OmnomIRC soon, so I'm going to hold off on major feature requests like that, too.

And the number-color bug isn't fixed yet (I think).

The one where if the post title starts with a number, that is read as part of the color for the SpyBot post.
