UI Language

Which language you want to view the user interface in. The options for this are:

  • English
  • French
  • German
  • Spanish
  • Dutch
  • Portuguese (Brasil)

Character Set

Which character set the client uses for textual data. By default UTF-8 is chosen. The options for this are:

  • UTF-8
  • Big 5
  • ISO-8859-(1 through 9, 13, & 15)
  • Windows125(0 through 8)

Saving Logs

There are two options to save PMs to logs and saving Channels to logs.

Alerts

Alerts are little messages (* People said stuff!) that become the title of the page when you are away from it. They have three preferences.

  • Window alert flashes: How many times the title should change before resting as [People Said Stuff!]
  • Alert Period: How long each flash should be up, measured in milliseconds (or 1000 equals one second)
  • Confirm Server Disconnect: Puts up a javascript alert if a server disconnects on you. It is best to have this option off if you don't like javascript alerts, or if you are going to be away from the computer for an extended amount of time (as if it's up too long, Mibbit logs out)

Others

Chat Window Margins: Change the size of the margins around the Chat Window

Allow incoming PMs: If you ever want to turn off private messages, this is a great way to do so.

Auto Away Time: Measured in seconds, the amount of time before Mibbit calls you away. Turn it to 0 to be off, 3600 for an hour, and 86400 for a day.

Auto Away Message: If you want a message for when you are auto-away. Some may find it annoying though. Leave it blank for no message.

Auto Back: If you type a message when you are away, it sets you as back.

Notices To Active Tab: If a server notice happens on the server you are in, it goes to the tab you are active in. If you aren't in that server, it goes to the server tab. Channel invites are one type of these notices.
