Auto-away changing nicks
« on: April 26, 2005, 01:59:31 AM »
Would it be possible to have the Auto-Away system change the user's nick back to the normal one when IC detects activity again? This never worked in IC5 - it just seemed to stick to the away nick.

It was never meant to work like that. You are "away" until you return yourself, with /away command, or clicking the Away Toolbar button.

Now, you could write a script that if you send a message, and you are away, you would automatically return.

Oh - so you mean that AutoAway after x minutes etc. doesn't do AutoReturn?
I couldn't find any description of that aspect of the feature.

That's right, AutoAway does not have AutoReturn. But an option could be added, so, i will make a note of it.
