Title: IRC bug?
Post by: xMarminq_ on November 20, 2016, 12:49:17 am
Whenever I type 05 Walrified 10 post by 01 YOUR NAME 03 on Re: FAKE TOPIC NAME http://codewalr.us/1643/47948 , it gives me an aura. Fix it before someone finds out an exploit to it. Paste it to see what I mean.

If we count EFnet netsplits as bugs, then it's something that happens daily. :P

Alright I think that @xMarminq_ means that typing numbers into WIRC makes the text colored. This is a bit of an oversight by @Juju, but it's nothing extremely dangerous.

Just don't abuse colors.

This is not an oversight.

You are likely pasting those invisible characters (\x03) that makes colors as well.

Yup that's exactly what's happening.

But when I post/ type this in the IRC it gives me the highlighted post line in the IRC as if there wasn't a difference

Yeah, well, it's not a bug, it's a feature.

You're allowed to send colored messages, it's been a feature in IRC clients since mIRC.

Post by: xMarminq_ on November 20, 2016, 09:40:14 pm
Then why is it highlighted?
Title: Re: IRC bug?
Post by: Streetwalrus on November 20, 2016, 09:41:30 pm
Well that would be because the message contains your nickname...

Post by: xMarminq_ on November 20, 2016, 09:42:40 pm
Ok.

Post by: p2 on November 21, 2016, 12:48:48 pm
to highlight a person in a post put their name behind an @ like this: @Streetwalrus
Streetwalrus will then be notified he was mentioned.
In IRC it's enough to just mention the name, without the @ before it :)

Well, @mentions on IRC only works for people who are on Telegram, although even without the @ it still highlights them on IRC.
