#1611 closed Defect (Won't Fix)

Away not functional; others' away status doesn't update

Reported by: scimitarfawkes@… Owned by: timothy
Component: Colloquy (Mac) Version: 2.2 (Mac)
Severity: Normal Keywords: away


When I attempt to /away, I am told that I have returned from away. This is definitely not a server or channel issue; it doesn't work anywhere. Seeing others marked as 'away' seems buggy as well - their names don't seem to update (that is, gray out when they go or become clear again when they return) until/unless I open their "Get Info".

You have to specify an away message for /away to take effect, "/away <message>"

Colloquy doesn't know if someone is idle until they are whois'd. This is due to how IRC works, it only pushes messages, not users status. We can't update Colloquy (grey names out) until we have the information, which has to be manually requested. And automatically retrieving information every n seconds or minutes isn't feasible, due to server limits and modes where people can see if they are whois'd (the command behind Get Info), which can be irritating.

Leaving this open as "/away when not away should use a default away message", for now.
