Staff Wish List (in no particular order, non staff postings will be deleted) Add headings as necessary, alphabetically please.


  • iPhone changes needed yet
    • Replace <meta name="viewport" content="width=640, height=800" /> with <meta name="viewport" content="width=320, initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=1; user-scalable=0;">
    • Allow resizing of tabs
    • Allow resizing of show/hide userlist link
    • Allow whois output to inherit chat pane font-size
  • Implement Password Recovery System
  • Change "Register" to "Create Account" on home page --Molkmin 23:00, 6 November 2008 (UTC)
  • alert IE8 users: "not compatible" --Hercule 14:10, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
  • "type query here" as BG-img aside "Find channels" like in /networks/ "google search" (many ppl just hit the button) --Hercule 17:42, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
  • RSS feed Tab --Azander 19:27, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Force selection of nickname for those entering #mibbit from the home page --Molkmin 23:02, 6 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Opera: fix alt+up and key & mouse scrolling
  • Add metakey hotkeys. This will ensure cross-browser compatibility. A metakey system would work as follows: press the metakey, say, for example, escape, then press any of the predefined strings to execute a macro. For example: press ESC, then 05 to select the 5th tab in the tab list.--Molkmin 07:12, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Whois output should inherit chat page font styling.--Molkmin 07:07, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Chat input field should be a textarea to allow for pasting multiple lines.--Molkmin 07:08, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Instead of having to use /quote list, and outputting raw data, perhaps we can use /list to link to http://www.mibbit.com/networks/server/channels.html, with "server" replaced by the server name. It would only work with servers trawled by the bot though. --Jokou 16:19, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Add brackets around the extra info when joining and quiting feature to make it easier to read. --Zuwer 01:19, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
  • The client/widget do not seem to pass any information about the disconnection reason to the ircd, every exit looks like a clean exit that the user requested, instead of ping timeout, etc. --Kitsune 13:52, 25 January 2009 (UTC)
  • The /removechat nick is case sensitive, yet nicks are not case sensitive. This isn't obvious, and as most times we use this command is after the fact, nick tabcomplete is not functional. --Kitsune 16:03, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Consider providing some success/fail indication for /removechat nick, such as 'SYSTEM: removechat purged N lines of nick from #chan'. --Kitsune 16:03, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Double clicking the channel topic makes it editable. --Jokou 20:38, 16 March 2009 (UTC)



  • Add or move the "add alias" link to the bottom of the list of aliases --Molkmin 22:51, 6 November 2008 (UTC)
    • Applies also to smilies, sounds and menus
  • focus on opened new aliases --Hercule 18:38, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
  • Startup alias that is auto triggered once connection is made (useful for things like /silence) --Azander 00:59, 3 November 2008 (UTC)
    • Scripting, anyone?


  • Userlist -> User (ignored) Text Color Havvy 05:43, 9 October 2008 (UTC)
  • General -> Client Text Color
  • General -> Client Heading Text Color


  • When new tab is added, it should scroll into view if it is not visible. --Molkmin 21:08, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Tiered indentation of tabs to more clearly indentify tab group.
    Server tab: no indent
      channel/pm tab: 1st level indent
         active tab: 2nd level indent
      channel/pm tab
    Server tab
      channel/pm tab

--Molkmin 21:17, 2 November 2008 (UTC)


  • allow userlist menu to inherit userlist font/size--Molkmin 21:14, 2 November 2008 (UTC)


  • Mass Deletion of logs, either by server, channel, and/or nick. --Azander 22:18, 25 November 2008 (UTC)
    • Possibly a set of checkboxes to select which ones to delete, then a delete all checked button
  • include parts and joins (like set in prefs)--Hercule 19:28, 3 January 2009 (UTC)


A mockup.

Have another section to the input to make it look prettier. Microchip08 18:55, 29 November 2008 (UTC)


  • Multiple use of created variables (like $nick) in an alias. -- Azander (Bug fixed)
  • Allow /mode # b to appear in the widget as it now does in the main client. Marked as important --Molkmin 15:42, 11 November 2008 (UTC) (Caveat is that you must be on the channel, otherwise it will not show unless you have a server tab)
  • Twitter feed Tab --Azander 19:27, 4 November 2008 (UTC) (Pretty much there in dev version).
  • Topic at top of Chat Pane (Look at the topic box in chatzilla), not the adbar. (Done for premium accounts, and premium widgets).
  • Add ircop status to whois output
  • Add user modes to output of whois for ircops.
