    what is the most recognizeable IRC icon?

  220. lovetox

    the hashtag?

  221. lovetox

    or is there something else im missing

  222. pulkomandy has joined

  223. flow

    mirc :)

  224. pep.


  225. pep.

    I'd say hashtag, even though some clients use that as a keyword for channels (public groupchats). Probably because of IRC yes

  226. pep.

    (dino, conversations)

  227. Zash has joined

  228. pulkomandy has left

  229. pulkomandy has joined

  230. lovetox

    so what do they use for a IRC channel?

  231. lovetox

    i would want to differentiate between a IRC Channel and a XMPP MUC

  232. Holger

    How do you do that? biboumi(?) somehow flags them as IRC channels?

  233. Zash

    There's some disco thing for it, no?

  234. Ge0rG

    in the registry!

  235. Zash

    https://xmpp.org/registrar/disco-categories.html#conference 'irc'

  236. lovetox

    yeah disco identity is a thing

  237. lovetox

    i can even differentiate between a phone client and desktop client :D

  238. MattJ

    Yes, I wish more clients used this info :(

  239. MattJ

    "Sorry I'm slow, I'm typing on mobile" would not need to be stated every time

  240. MattJ

    and people on desktops would have no excuse for typos! We can fnially hold them to higher standards!

  241. Ge0rG

    MattJ: overlay the avatar in the typing notification with a device icon?

  242. lovetox

    Gajim has that feature :)

  243. lovetox

    i think jonas’ requested it once

  244. Holger

    Anyway, at least in Dino and Conversations, I don't see any difference for IRC channels vs. MUC rooms. (Why would I want to, BTW?)

  245. Zash

    Number of features would work as if nobody supported them

  246. Zash

    LMC etc

  247. pulkomandy has left

  248. pulkomandy has joined

  249. lovetox

    Holger, because they are in many ways different

  250. Zash

    There are also funky things with nicknames

  251. Holger


  252. lovetox

    but its a good point, actually i should disable many things in the client depending on the transport

  253. lovetox

    LMC / Nick change / Encryption make not much sense in a IRC channel

  254. moparisthebest

    LMC works with the fallback I guess, why not nick change?

  255. lovetox

    moparisthebest, users use LMC because they think other see it as they see it

  256. lovetox

    it does not make much sense to send a 20 word sentence again and change one letter

  257. lovetox

    there are shorter methods to do that

  258. moparisthebest

    it's super annoying in MUCs when your client doesn't support it too (like dino)

  259. lovetox


  260. Zash

    Dino supports LMC now tho :)

  261. lovetox

    so i want to tell the user, there is no correction, so think about what you send

  262. moparisthebest

    you don't disable it when non-LMC xmpp clients are in there, how is an IRC client different :)

  263. Link Mauve

    moparisthebest, XMPP clients can implement it (and should), IRC clients not so much.

  264. lovetox

    moparisthebest, in XMPP every user can choose a different nick per MUC

  265. lovetox

    in IRC you have on nick per Server

  266. lovetox

    in IRC you have one nick per Server

  267. moparisthebest

    right but that's up to the transport to manage, I still might want to change my nick

  268. lovetox

    so to offer a nick change in a IRC MUC for an XMPP user gives him the wrong idea

  269. Martin has left

  270. lovetox

    im not saying i disallow nick changes on irc bridges, but i think there is a better place for it

  271. moparisthebest

    I can change my nick in biboumi in channels I think... it's been awhile since I have

  272. Zash

    You can, but it changes everywhere.

  273. Zash

    Which is ... fun.

  274. Martin has joined

  275. moparisthebest


  276. pep.

    yep and then you also get a message from the server telling your to do the nickserv dance to identity again etc. etc.., and some clients will change the nick in every single bookmark and next time you try to reconnect it's.. ugh

  277. pep.

  278. Martin has left

  279. Zash

    And some clients update the bookmark, some other clients fiddle with it, weird stuff happens.

  280. Martin has joined

  281. Zash

    If you're lucky all clients eventually agree on the same nickname

  282. pep.

    To me the most annoying is NickServ nonetheless

  283. pep.

    That authentication is not handled by the transport itself (if it's even possible)

  284. Zash

    Can't remember touching NickServ since I set up Biboumi

  285. Zash

    Pretty sure it handles it for me

  286. pep.

    Because you don't change nicknames? :p

  287. lovetox

    pep. you can

  288. lovetox

    with adhoc command you can configure the irc server to execute the auth script on connect

  289. pep.

    lovetox, you can with sasl that very few IRC servers support

  290. pep.

    lovetox, sure

  291. pep.

    For clients that even do ad-hoc

  292. Zash

    Usually I end up with "zash" or "Zash"

  293. pep.

    lovetox, and you still need to register once

  294. lovetox

    of course, but you have also to register with xmpp

  295. lovetox


  296. pep.

    yeah but not on every single server, and why are they all different and why do I need to log in on XMPP and then on IRC etc.. lots of things that users shouldn't have to worry about :)

  297. lovetox

    yeah but i guess people who use irc can manage

  303. pep.

    Yeah, not the best side to see it from

  304. pep.

    They don't give a damn about the rest

  305. lovetox

    or another point, it does not make sense to display presence show value in a IRC

    Are they used in IM at all

  335. Martin has joined

  336. pulkomandy has left

  337. pep.

    Ge0rG, can you detail?

  338. pep.

    to avoid ending up in MAM or something?

  339. Zash

    MAM result containers are type=normal I tihnk

  340. Ge0rG

    Zash: not headline?

  341. Ge0rG

    pep.: the authors of 0184 forgot to make it type=chat so it implicitly became type=normal, causing all sorts of trouble

  342. pep.

    Would a client send @type=normal on purpose? Or an action from a user that would require @type=normal or something

  343. Zash

    Gajim and Psi ha[sd] email-looking ways of sending type=normal

  344. pep.


  345. Zash

    Ge0rG, https://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0313.xml ^F headline only one match in a section about what one might save in the archive

  346. pep.

    Would a new XEP nowadays use normal for anything? In the IM use-case. What would be an appropriate use of @type=normal?

  347. pulkomandy has joined

  348. pep.

    (and outside of IM)

  349. Zash

    @type=chat is the new normal!

  350. pep.

    pubsub is headline right

  351. Zash

    yee.... actually you can choose

  352. Ge0rG

    So MAM messages could end up in MAM, right? ;)

  353. Zash

    Ge0rG, and in Carbons!

  354. Ge0rG


  355. Zash

    IIRC it already happened

  356. pulkomandy has left

  357. Ge0rG

    Sigh. Another hour well spent on... https://stackoverflow.com/a/16710246/539443

  358. pep.

    Would be great to have some informational XEP on the different types in use and what they're actually for (contrary to what the RFCs say if it's different)

  359. pep.

    As some kind of errata for later

  360. Ge0rG

    Whoops, that was the wrong channel. Sorry.

  361. Ge0rG

    Jabber4BeOS (now Renga) used to handle normal as "icq style" messages, each message would popup a new window. But that was 20 years ago and there already was an option to handle them like chat with a more usual instant messaging style

  384. lovetox

    i think some MUC invite uses type=normal

  385. lovetox

    was it direct or mediated

  386. lovetox

    i dont know anymore

  387. lovetox

    it was mediated

  388. Ge0rG

    lovetox: probably an oversight in the XEP

  389. lovetox


  390. lovetox

    it says MUST be type normal

  391. lovetox

    that does not sound like a oopsi

  392. pulkomandy has left

    it was "the message MUST NOT possess a 'type' attribute" before

  403. lovetox

    which is implicit normal

  404. Ge0rG
