Description

Hi guys:

I use ZNC as my way to connect to my various IRC servers (bitlbee included, hosted locally on the same box :)). One thing that's always annoyed me, and is unfortunately an unsolved problem is that ZNC doesn't support buffering of Queries in the same way it does channels. I'm sure a lot of people use ZNC with Bitlbee, so it could/would be useful to allow the ability to use channels instead of queries as the default method to communicate with connected users.

Feature has been there (and was in fact the default for a while) since the first release 0.7, from 2002. :-)

Yes, I ran across that one. It's close to what I'm looking for, except not all in the control channel. I was looking more for it to be split into seperate channels. For instance, if I am talking to BobSmith, it would create a channel (#jabber_bobsmith), which chatting into that would send message to bob smith.

I know it's fairly specific, but I think for people who do use bouncers, and enjoy synchronosity between all their devices.. it could be very useful.

Replying to wilmer:

You'll just have to do that manually. Join &bobsmith when you want to talk to him, etc.

Hmm.. I'm trying to see where that can be setup. There are only a few people I know that I would want that functionality with. How can this be done?

I'd recommend an IRC client script. Or a patch to BitlBee if you're feeling brave.
