#1511 closed Enhancement (Fixed)

Allow the automated WHOIS on PM windows to be disabled

Reported by: cshard@… Owned by: timothy
Component: Colloquy (Mac) Version: 2.2 (Mac)
Severity: Normal Keywords: whois, check, afk, flood, toggle


The recent upgrade to Colloquy have introduced a feature where Colloquy automatically run a constant WHOIS check on whoever the user is PMing with to check if they are online or set to Away.

This is a useful feature, however it is causing issues in certain circumstances and configurations - such as, for example, when connecting over a ZNC bouncer with several other clients attached under your name - irssi in particular would be flooded with WHOIS returns, as well as other, less modifiable clients.

Additionaly, many IRCOps have expressed an increasing annoyance at seeing my constant WHOISing of them both during and after a conversation.

It was suggested to just close the PM windows when a conversation is done, however this is impossible to do when opening the PM windows over ZNC remotely rather then through Colloquy itself - and sometimes, you just need to keep that window open.

Please consider adding a preference toggle for turning off the automated WHOIS feature for those who choose to do so.

can you tell us more about the networks where you see this causing a problem?

colloquy should be using watch and ison and should not be whoising for no reason (i.e. outside of doing a get info on that user), and I can't say I've seen any whoising on networks where i'm an oper..
