After talking to DJ_O, I thought of a great useful feature, but for some reason I don't think it is possible. Would it be possible to have OmnomIRC message the user (with highlight) when they receive a new PM?

Just as long as it's not like Cemetech, where if you send a forum PM to someone via SAX, it tells everybody that you sent a PM.

However it migth be a good idea because in too many occasions, my PMs or posts in the suggestion forum got missed or responded to too late, so I end up bugging them on IRC.
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

Yeah, I agree, this is a good idea, unless Netham fix this so it works like the internal channels.

Since users can use /msg to send a private message, I am assuming OmnomIRC could also /msg users privately :)

Another thing: I don't recommend the OmnomIRC /msg (or maybe it was /query?), because a year ago, I recall two saying they saw a PM from someone else, so it's not very secure.

its gotten better now i can speak from experiance been using it alot lately.

tho you are better just /msg ing the user a @channel then /join @channel

as it works a bit better than the user pm system atm

Xeda, that's a decent idea, but since OmnomIRC and Omnimaga are pretty much two separate systems (OmnomIRC's simply an iframe on Omnimaga and piggybacking off of Omnimaga's login), it'd be a bit difficult to integrate them.

@Geek, I just fixed up a lot of stuff with PMs, though they're still not as well refined as @ channels are.
