    v9 v10  
    88No. Apple has not provided support for running any third party application in the background. Push notification (like Mail) has been announced but is also not yet available to third party applications. 
    99 
    10 Keep in mind that even with push notification available in future versions for iPhone, this may not be a possibility in Colloquy due to major changes required in software that is out of our control, i.e. on IRC servers.

    1212=== How can I stay connected while doing other things? === 
    13 The main way you can get past the limitation mentioned above is to use something called a bouncer (bnc, proxy, et cetera). A bouncer will stay online for you on a different computer or server which you then connect to from Colloquy. This is a service that Colloquy does not provide, it is something that you will either have to set up yourself or purchase from a third party.

    1515=== What is Keyboard Selection? === 
    16 While we figure most people will prefer to tap auto-completion suggestions to insert them, Colloquy also offers the option of inserting them using the keyboard. You can switch to Keyboard Selection in Colloquy's settings (Advanced Behaviour, Chat Completions).

    18 With keyboard selection, instead of only being able to tap suggestions to insert them, you can also wait a second or so after a suggestion pops up, tap space until the suggestion you want is highlighted, and finally tap enter on the keyboard to insert it. Space will only select suggestions if you pause typing, otherwise just as with Tap Selection, continuing to type will be ignore suggestions. You will know you've waited long enough when the Send key turns to Enter.

You can also keep typing while in this state, and Colloquy will insert a space and the letter you pressed while dismissing the suggestions.

    2222=== How do I change the default settings? === 
    23 Many settings, such as changing the style, quit message or default nickname, can be changed by selecting Colloquy in the Settings application. If there's a setting you want, it's probably in there.

    2828=== How do I create a new style? === 
    29 While styles for Colloquy are nothing more then CSS and Javascript, Colloquy currently has no way for a user to modify, create and add new styles. However, there is a discussion as to how we might be able to do this in future releases on ticket #1375.

    50 While Mobile Colloquy takes the locale to search on Google, Wikipedia, or Amazon with from the system settings, it is possible to search using different languages. All you have to do is specify a locale other than your default one. This is done by typing a country code like "de" before the search term. So if you were American and wanted to search the German version of Google for "kuchen", you would enter "/google de kuchen".
