#2838 closed Defect (Works for Me)

NickServ IRC authorization not complete before join channel

Description

On Freenode IRC, the order of operations is wrong.

It attempts to join saved channels *before* completing authorization with NickServ?.

The result will be errors upon trying to join channels, and in some cases, situations that are difficult to automatically recover from, such as NickServ? "helpfully" placing the user in an alternate channel instead, thus masking the error from being noticed by Colloquy.

The proposed solution will be to complete NickServ? authorization *before* attempting to join any saved channels.

Colloquy has an option to wait for auth before joining rooms; open the Connections window, select your network and hit 'Info', and in the Automatic tab, check "Rooms wait for identification".
