Welcome to the Wish List. If you would like a feature for Mibbit that isn't currently in it, suggest it here in the correct category. Completed ideas are subject to deletion without a notification.

Commands

'Note that these commands need to include new functionality, not something that can be added with aliases or user-menus.'

CTCP

  • TIME -- Shows the time the user sees.
  • WEBSITE -- Only for the widget, shows what website they are coming from. On main client, shows 'Main'
  • GENDER -- From the 'Profile' field. If not set, shows unknown.
  • AGE -- From the 'Profile' field. If not set, shows unknown.
  • LOCATION -- From the 'Profile' field. If not set, shows unknown.
  • URL -- From the 'Profile' field. If not set, shows unknown.

IRC Protocol

  • /hide (To still be on a channel but no one can see you pm you or have you appear at all.
    • /hideall to hide from all channels.
    • Isn't there a hide mode?
  • /dcc support for those who wish to transfer files
    • /dcca (support to receive dcc transfered files)
  • /mop - gives ops to everyone in the channel
    • /mdop - removes ops from everyone in the channel but you
  • /quit - Allow a "/quit" to use the default mibbit quit line) "/quit msg" works already ...
    • /quitall <reason>
  • /awayall <reason>
  • /muzzle and /unmuzzle -- places a muzzle on a user, allowing them to read but not send. Compatible with most Unreal servers.
    • can be done via menues: /mode # +b ~q:$nick!*@* or /mode # +b ~q:*!*@$host --Hercule 08:01, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
  • /ignore pm -- /ignore needs to block pm's as well.
    • can be done with the Silence command --Azander 17:34, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

Mibbit GUI -> CLI

  • /pastebin - Lets you open the pastebin. Also on that note, /smilies, /translation (if nothing placed in), and /colors
    • Probably also /colours then.
  • /prefs, /account, /channels, /logs, & /logout for logged in users;
  • /login <user> <password> and /register <user> <password> for the Mibbit.com
  • Allow the NickServ Password to be sent along with a nickname when AutoConnect is turned on
    • /recoverpass <email> (with accompanying GUI)
  • /findchannels <search> -- Basically does what that thing in the top-right portion of the client does. Shows a search.
  • /tos

Mibbit Mode (Mmodes ?)

This is basically an interface to work with all the modes that will be channel set. The modes should work just like adding a mode for a channel or nick, except that the mode is set for the Mibbit client, and that the database holding this information reads it as working for the channel the command is thrown in.

The basic structure of the command is: /mode mIbBiT +letter[s]

Note that the mibbit part is not case sensitive. The various modes (and letters) are proposed here. If implemented, move the implemented ones to their own page.

+r = Recent Chat on.
+R = Removechat functionality on. By default, have +R +a, +R +q, and +R +o

  • Note that I'm breaking mode protocol a little, and having it so that one mode type is +(letter) +(letter) meaning that if a person has that mode, they can use the functionality. Current modes I know of are the Cmodes +hoaqeb

+a = Autoconnect
+w = Allow widgets. Works like Cmode +b only using originating website as mode. For example, if I don't want to allow widgets from http://phishing.com I could do /mode Mibbit +w http://*.phishing.com/*; To ban all widgets, use *;
+l = Disable logging.
+L = Sets it to auto-log if a Mibbit person is in there and put it into a public logging section while ignoring the logging of accounts it goes through (but still log for users that request it unless +l is set)
+e = An empty mode that works as a power for modes +w and +R

Server/Tab Commands

  • /close, /window close, /wc, ... [ ARG ] -- close the current tab or the ARG tab, if ARG is supplied --eporim: 87.7.63.173 08:39, 14 August 2008 (UTC)
  • /disconnect -- to disconnect from the current server without closing the tab (like /part for channels) nor the tabs of its channels --eporim: 87.7.63.173 09:13, 14 August 2008 (UTC)
  • /reconnect -- to reconnect to the current server that was /disconnect-ed before, eventually to rejoin the same channels (maybe not safe if one /part-ed some chan before /disconnect-ing and don't want to rejoin, maybe better without rejoing at all, using another command /rejoin to rejoin all currently /part-ed chans (if from the server tab) or the current /part-ed chan (if from the chan tab)) --eporim: 87.7.63.173 09:13, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

Preferences

  • Show userlist on left. - Default Off
    • Preference for having userlist pane on left. Havvy 21:10, 3 February 2008 (UTC)
  • Change Page Title on Message - Default 'checked'
    • Preference to toogle "SOMEONE SAID SOMETHING" in Title
    • Ability to toggle changing the title on message per channel 12.24 27th August 2008 (UTC)
  • Show Chat on Join - Default 'checked'
    • Would make the emote (recent) and text (recent) fields irrelevant while on, and not show the chat history. Havvy 09:53, 17 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Add the ability to add input and output language to the link variables.Azerthoth
  • Leave the default away/unaway behavior as is - 10 minutes or so. But change the default display setting so that it won't leave the little messages all over the place. This lets those users who want to know who's here or not know, but also makes it so us who really don't care aren't spammed with "xxxxx is away" messages(Which is really annoying. We know they're not here--they haven't SAID anything for 10 minutes! ) EugeneKay (chat) 07:50, 25 January 2008 (UTC)
    • word! pls. greetz wurtl
    • A more English 'please'. Havvy 09:53, 17 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Dragable pane borders-- HerculeP, 14 January 2008 (UTC)
  • Preference to change the color swatches for 0-15 so that skins don't conflict. roboticaust 22:09, 22 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Input Options Toolbar Text Color Havvy 03:51, 9 October 2008 (UTC)
  • Userlist -> User (ignored) Text Color Havvy 05:43, 9 October 2008 (UTC)
  • General -> Client Tab Color & Tab Border Color (for Prefs, Logging, Account, ect.)
    • General -> Client Text Color
    • General -> Client Heading Text Color
    • Those three would give a lot more control to the system, allowing skinning of the last part of the client, the official pages. Not everybody likes green.

User Interface

Chat Pane & Text Parsing

  • Right to left languages support. [comment: in the browser I'm using (firefox 2) i can read and write arabic and hebrew without problems, they are correctly shaped and typeset (at the best of mozilla support, not more, obviously ;P), isn't it the same for the other browsers? is it a charset issue of the writer or something other? --eporim: 87.7.63.173 08:51, 14 August 2008 (UTC)]
  • Have topic always visible on top of chat screen, like how ChatZilla does it? Have the preference for this set to off by default. Havvy 17:22, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
  • Allow Stalk Words
  • Make so we can click on nick in the chat display (Gilou)
    • I'd do it as a double-click, if the pref is on. -- Havvy
  • Have a simple sound notification when a user needs to get everybody's attention in the channel
    • IRC does not work this way last I checked. There is no standard way of setting that flag off. Havvy 13:51, 11 July 2008 (UTC)
  • All channel types parsing (use CHANTYPES part of numeric 005 to get supported channel types). ie. CHANTYPES=#& would allow parsing of #channels and &channels. --yajirobe 00:03, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
  • Easier channel mode changes.
    • For changes to users, allow more universal modes (+ovb, along with a possible user pref for default ban style). Allow these to be selectable from the nicklist menu.
    • For changes to general channel modes, again allow more universal modes (+milknts). There can be a channel popup when they double-click, to allow easy editing of channel modes, topics, etc. Keep in mind the MODES section of the 005 numeric, which says how many modes can be changed per line.
    • Possibly add support for additional, ircd/network-specific user and channel modes. All of these modes are listed in numeric 005.
      • For the channel user hierarchy, the PREFIX message is used and lists the mode letters in parenthesis, followed by their appropriate symbols (ie. PREFIX="(ov)@+")
      • For other channel modes, the CHANMODES message is used and is divided into 4 comma-delmited sections (1: username/address in a list which also return a list when no parameter is specified, 2: one-parameter modes (k), 3: when set, only has one parameter, 4: zero parameters)

--Yajirobe 23:55, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

  • The ability to filter out specific text, similar to botserv's badword ist, but without the kics and bans.

Raw Numerics Look A Bit Lame ATM

stuff like this look lame:

1:32	broadway.ny.us.dal.net	255: | [0] Sadie|AjaxIRC, [1] I have 98 clients and 1 servers
1:32	broadway.ny.us.dal.net	265: | [0] Sadie|AjaxIRC, [1] Current local users: 98 Max: 15001
1:32	broadway.ny.us.dal.net	266: | [0] Sadie|AjaxIRC, [1] Current global users: 26806 Max: 56468

it could be implemented like this

1:15 broadway.ny.us.dal.net [RAW=255] I have '''2492''' clients and '''0''' servers
1:15 broadway.ny.us.dal.net [RAW=265] Current local  users: '''2492'''  Max: '''2868'''
1:15 broadway.ny.us.dal.net [RAW=266] Current global users: '''38649'''  Max: '''44966'''

Make ircd specific raw handlers, not all networks use the same raw's since they are not general. --OUTsider 15:44, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Input Bar & Options

  • Improve the completion system for nicknames, maybe like xchat does by displaying a list of matching nicks, or by cycling through available completions rather than just stopping the way it does (Gilou)
  • Channel name TAB completion. If just "# (TAB)" complete to current channel (if any), otherwise cycle through matching channels (ie "#mi {TAB}" goes to #mibbit if they're on that channel) --Yajirobe 23:18, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
    • This was discussed in the channel once...and is a good idea I think. Havvy 19:58, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
  • Ability to edit "Smilies | Colors | Translation | PasteBin" color in the "prefs"

Logging, Account, Profile, & Channels

  • Merge of logs into one set. Merge same-date logs. Don't allow for channels. Havvy 14:09, 17 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Have the logs area look like the chat pane, for easier viewing. Ask me if this confuses you mibbit. Havvy 14:09, 17 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Option to download logs.
  • Ignore NickServ / ChanServ from logging since it poses a potential security issue.
  • Search, Mass Deletion, Choice to Delete Entire Nick/Channel, Fullscreen Show log
    • For logging.
  • Implement the password recovery system.
  • Annex My Channels into Account, placing it next to the IRC Server Details table

Preferences

Note: This is the User-Interface WishList section. The full Preferences section is up above.

  • Using cookies, allow guests to have preferences. Cookie is made when they view the prefs tab and aren't logged in. Show Prefs button when they aren't logged is needed for this. Havvy 20:47, 8 March 2008 (UTC)
    • I'm moving this to UI. The cookie can hold the current Prefs ID. Havvy 09:53, 17 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Firefox about:config style page (and I mean take every piece of UI they have there). The filter, and the table with "Preference Name, Status (either Default, or User Set), Type, and Value. For the types, I would include: 'color' 'boolean' 'integer' 'string' Havvy 23:36, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

Tabs

  • Add a picture for when a person click (and hold) the close button.
  • Option to change close button icons

Tabbar

TabList

  • Tab close button right-aligned

Userlist

  • Increase the icons for the on Mibbit/off Mibbit icons. The thing with the green or blue person or IPod. Havvy 20:47, 8 March 2008 (UTC)
    • I'm calling them 'client' icons' from here on out.
      • CZ logo for Chatzilla people.
      • Mirc logo for Mirc people.
      • Change the on Mibbit icon to a frog.
      • X-Chat logo;
      • Konquerer logo;
      • Pidgin logo;
  • Making it so that pressing a letter on the keyboard when you have selected the users list (list of users in that channel) will jump to the next user with a nick starting with that letter.
  • Provide more separation of links on the Userlist drop down to help prevent accidental invocation of ban/kick. Making the list onMouseover aware might be a good place to start - Molkmin
  • Make it possible to whois/query/ignore users my clicking on their nickname in the left colum (of each line of chat)
  • Dragable pane borders-- HerculeP, 14 January 2008 (UTC)
  • Make determination of network base on raw 005's NETWORK string if possible instead of server setting in url so that it does not matter which server the user enters to still see the correct icons for every user on that network in the userlist --OUTsider 15:39, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Other

  • When logged in Mibbit, have the nickname in "Username" field be your sign up nick instead of mib_randomness on the Home tab User:Havvy
  • Away messages in whois. These are supported by many servers/clients, but we can't see them in mibbit, when (for example) they are set by irssi users 71.105.107.54 06:59, 2 April 2008 (UTC)
  • From molkmin: Ability to hide/show the header of the full Mibbit client, up to the tabs line.
    • I'd say that would everything above the prefs line, and have the Kenneth image go hidden. Also, before doing this, I would suggestion adding in the /findchannels or whatever I called it command implemented. Havvy 05:20, 15 July 2008 (UTC)
  • notices (and ctcps, eventually) should go directly in the correct query/channel window (if opened) instead of the current window --eporim: 87.20.71.162 05:43, 25 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Being identified only shows a yes or no, but some networks use usernames instead of limiting it to the nickname like on nickserv enabled networks (undernet, quakenet, scarynet and a couple other username auth based networks), so it might be useful to also display the username in the whois screen. User:OUTsider
  • RSS feed tab --Azander 19:26, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Twitter tab/channel --Azander 19:26, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

Servers/Devices/Charsets

Note: Please have server admins look at a How To for supporting Mibbit.

  • Open Server on the Telnet for connection to other MUDs/MUSHes/MOOs/MUXes.
  • PSP compatible interface. The www.mibbit.com interface doesn't load fully on the PSP's web browser...
  • Support for (Windows) pocket devices.
  • Include irc.2ch.net (2 Channel, 2チャネル), a really popular Japanese network.
  • Include ISO-2022-JP-2, or at least the older ISO-2022-JP (needed for irc.2ch.net (2 Channel) ) (Japanese charset)
  • Include Shift_JIS (Japanese charset)

Security

  • Preference to disallow right-clicking on the widget, namely to avoid handing out chankeys via the source. I feel this is a security risk since no amount of scrambling, right click denied on my end can conceal that and all it takes is for a user to make an account on my site and right click to be back on irc attacking me with several bot clients. Seriously, 1 small line of code and a end code is all it takes. roboticaust 07:04, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
    • Might I suggest &rightclick=disabled be the HTML? Havvy 14:09, 17 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Have the server rewrite https://mibbit.com/ to https://www.mibbit.com/ . With the Apache rewrite module that's a mere two-liner.
    • Uh, what security bonus does that give? Havvy 14:58, 22 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Give the user a warning when he uses SSL only on one of the two Mibbit connections, i.e. when he connects via https, but not via SSL to the IRC server, or vice versa.

Embed/Widget

  • Add a link/button to the widget that shows/hides the user list and have the default status be a preference Pb30 16:09, 4 May 2008 (UTC)
  • Ability to force widget users to stay on a single channel and not join another using your widget.
  • No login screen for when using Freenode.
  • From Pb30: is there any javascript function i can run from a page to join a channel on the widget; so by default they join #xyz, then i have a nice pretty link on the page that would have them join #abc
    • Basically, if there is an embedded client on the page, if a link goes to a channel on the server, have it open up that channel. Seems like a wonderful idea. The above is two lines from IRC. Havvy 00:29, 26 July 2008 (UTC)
  • I don't know if this is possible or not, but for widget users, allow mibbit to send some sort of info to the parent window to notify the parent window that activity is going on. The parent window can then change the page title however they want, similarly to how it does with chat on mibbit.com. --Yajirobe 23:31, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
  • Sound support for Widget. A mini-alternative to the previous entry Forai 17:06, 15 October 2008 (UTC)
  • Add an option to disable autojoining #chat (maybe allow prompting for channel name below nickname prompt before connecting?) ThiefMaster 10:38, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

Other

  • Optional username/ident support - useful for BNC users.
  • A way to setup Alternative nick, to avoid nick colisions in direct connections to the server.
  • Alert() confirm before closing in some cases.
  • Remove the current quit message, as some people treat it as spam.
  • Scripting

Networks Control Center (NCC)

--OUTsider 15:39, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
  • Allow networks to register
  • Allow networks to define their own WEBIRC password
  • Allow networks to define the way people need to authenticate:
    • "AUTH %user %password" or "PRIVMSG NICKSERV :identify %password" etc.
    • Makes the Auth link on the home page obsolete and only needed for "Other Server"
  • Allow networks to define the way users are identified on the net:
    • send ip encoded in identd or send "Mibbit"
    • send host in realname or send mibbit advertisement realname
  • Allow networks to set a contact email/website for the network
  • Allow networks to define a list of hosts for autoconnect
  • Allow networks to set certain filtersettings like spamfilter rules

Invalid/Not Going To Happen

  • Releasing Source Code
  • Allow each tab to open in an actual browser tab
  • /dset <key> <val> - that works for unregistered users too --eporim: 87.20.71.162 05:46, 25 July 2008 (UTC)
    • Dset is kind of depreciated, and might not work in the future.
  • Create a mibbit app for the iphone, I would gladly pay $5 for it as would a thousand other people.
    • Mibbit already works for the Iphone.
  • /msg command displaying (option?). Any input to the chat bar by default does a "/msg <Active Window> ...". When typing out the /msg command, no text is displayed on the screen at all since the ircd does not send messages back to the client unless there was an error. My suggestion is to display manually entered messages somehow --Yajirobe 23:40, 12 September 2008 (UTC)
    • Use /query
  • Commands like /slap --> Use aliases
  • Assign a default username to users joining the channel, something that can be specified in the args
    • Already doable.
  • Allow user to specify external CSS file to control look and feel.
    • Try the Stylish extension out on Firefox.
