Away system doesn't work
« on: May 12, 2004, 01:17:03 PM »
How can it be that the away system

doesn't work?? I have tested in QuakeNET and IRCnet this...I write on the channel /away test and it says that now I'm

marked as away but before I wrote that I asked my friend to check if I'm really away in few minutes and I wasn't. have

tested this many times but it just doesn't work.

Thats because it

does not set you away on the IRC Server.
It is just away for Internal Icechat usage, it does not use the AWAY settings on

the IRC server.

With raw commands. (/raw

away)

The away system has plenty of usefullness still, as it still keeps track of how long you are away, and sends

msgs, etc. Its upto you if you want to use it or not.
