Revision as of 01:02, 3 November 2009

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.


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


  • 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

  • /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
  • /partall <reason>
  • /quitall <reason>
  • /awayall <reason>
  • completion and expansion of ISON. '/ison TheirNick' results in server tab (success, TheirNick IsOn: 'irc.mibbit.net 303: | [0] MyNick, [1] TheirNick') and (fail, TheirNick is Not On: 'irc.mibbit.net 303: | [0] MyNick, [1]'. A) Clean up the parsing of raw303. B) Implement a method for a registered user to manage a list of nicks. Typically, the result of a managed list of nicks is held, and shown to the user once at each state change, from ISON=false to ISON=true "TheirNick is on IRC" and from ISON=true to ISON=false "TheirNick has left IRC". Default polling rate should be 60 seconds or more, typically the user does not have control over the polling rate.
  • Ability to show spamfilter notices when your message gets blocked IE: Message blocked: Software advertisement is not welcome here. Specific to spamfilter-based IRCds?
  • Auto-assume # on /j and /join (if none of the CHANTYPES= is in 'channel')
    • I second this Havvy 02:59, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

Mibbit GUI -> CLI

  • /smilies, /translation (if nothing placed in), and /colors
    • Probably also /colours then.
  • /prefs, /account, /channels, /logs, & /logout for logged in users;
    • /channels - Opens the Channels GUI page.
      • /channels irc.server.name autojoin on|off - If the server is in channels, (un)ticks the autojoin
      • /channels irc.server.name add #chan key - If server is in channels, appends the channel to the list.
      • /channels irc.server.name del #chan key - Opposite of above.
      • /channels remove irc.server.name - Removes server from channels.
      • /channels add irc.server.name - Adds server to channels, if not there already. Any extra arguments, and this command is ignored.
      • /channels view irc.server.name - Shows all channels for the server, and if autoconnect is on or not.
  • /Login <user> <password> and /Create an account <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
  • Add the ability to switch between data url's and just regular image tags to the user mode images and the exit images on the tabs (Colten) March 20 2009 edit july 1 2009
  • Add keyboard shortcuts to the tabs, so if you have alot open you can just type 'Ctrl+1' or something like that and it will go the the 1st tab open. -- H4XG33K; 10/7/09
    • try Alt+left/rigth-arrow

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 = Disallow 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

Save a list for when people use /clearchat and /clear commands.

Server/Tab Commands

  • /close, /window close, /wc, ... [ ARG ] -- close the current tab or the ARG tab, if ARG is supplied --eporim: 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: 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: 09:13, 14 August 2008 (UTC)
  • /amsg, /ame -- let`s you send a msg to all the channels you currently are in. (dondonna, 23/11/2208)


  • Userlist left of Chat Pane. - Default Off Havvy 21:10, 3 February 2008 (UTC)
    • Would be to the right of the channels list if channels list is a sidebar.
  • Change Page Title on Message - Default 'checked'
    • Preference to toggle "SOMEONE SAID SOMETHING" in <title>
    • Ability to toggle changing the title on message per channel 12.24 27th August 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)
  • Allow Stalk Words
    • The ability to assign colors to specific nicks.
  • Userlist -> Icons' placement problem - "Combined mode" along with "combined mode on left" shows the Mibbit user icons and the op/voice icons together, to the left of the nick. This is great, however there should at least be an option to swap the location of those icons when these 2 features are enabled, because when a user is not voiced or isn't an op, there is a gap between the Mibbit user icon and the user's nick (as shown in the image).
  • Ability to add custom links on the link bar at the bottom (unixbro)
  • Text colors for ops/hops/aops speaking Havvy 10:59, 21 December 2008 (UTC)
  • A way to configure default user modes (e.g. +x-i).
  • hide topic display on channel join from appearing in the channel --Kitsune 20:41, 3 January 2009 (UTC) per user request.
  • Many mibbit users (subset: first time IRC users) don't understand typing '/join #channel (enter)' instead, they type '#channel (enter)' then click it. Some consider this channel spam, and I have been asked about it from some of my own networks. A possible solution would be to see if there is exactly one word, and it is formed as a valid CHANTYPES= channel name (#.*word, &.*word), then make the user join that channel and drop the line fom going to the original channel. --Kitsune 20:41, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Add ignore list to user preferences. -- Alternativo 09:19, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Allow movement/deletion of built-in-options on the User-Menus.
    • Instead of making them built-in, just make them presets, sort of like aliases.
  • Add server-specific permanent ignore lists. It should allow a hostmask rather than just a nick.
  • Add the ability to switch between data url's and just regular image tags to the user mode images and the exit images on the tabs (Colten) March 20 2009 edit july 1 2009
  • Add a option to change the background-color of the login-screen (currently: grey) and loading-screen (currently: black) or let them be effected by the global background-color set. (Paddel) March 30 2009
  • Show mibbit users on the top of the userlist in channels. raisin 20:16, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

User Interface

  • Translations basically double the line length. Some decodes are identical. Can you delete/ignore the translated output if the input was the same/not translated? In other words, in this is some text (this is some text), both fields are the same, don't bother displaying the useless translation. --Kitsune 05:39, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Dragable pane borders-- HerculeP, 14 January 2008 (UTC)
  • Add the ability to switch between data url's and just regular image tags to the user mode images and the exit images on the tabs (Colten) March 20 2009 edit july 1 2009

Chat Pane & Text Parsing

  • Implement automated charset translation so that charset errors get translated to the current charset which was specified as the receiving one via /charset. For example UTF-8 errors are interpreted as ISO-8859-1 (which they very much mostly are), properly encoded in UTF-8 and only thereafter sent down the line. Users use inconsistent charsets, so it is currently inevitable to have charset errors that look like little questionmarks on black squares and such all over the place.
    • make the default rcharset AUTO
  • Make it possible to whois/query/ignore users my clicking on their nickname in the left colum (of each line of chat)
    • I'd do it as a double-click, if the pref is on. -- Havvy
  • 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 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-delimted 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)

    • Also, show somewhere what the mdoes of a channel are. These are only shown in the main client upon joining a channel, but in the widget, these rawmsg's aren't shown at all. --TheCainer 14:00, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
  • Unbanning through the banlist (/mode #channame +b) should remove the line that shows the ban from the screen. Havvy 19:51, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
  • When a person does a "/ns identify theirPass" check to see if the nick/pass match is in Account, and if not, ask "Would you like Mibbit to remember your password?" Havvy 22:07, 7 March 2009 (UTC)
  • A slightly more capable lexical analyzer, which counts Parens (Quote from Surgo) Basically, for links, if they have a ( at the beginning, continue until the )<space> but if there is an open ), don't count it in the link. -- Havvy 19:42, 6 September 2009 (UTC)

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

  • 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)
  • Support for shortcuts like ctrl+b for bold, ctrl+u for underlined and ctrl+k for color.
  • Pastebin currently has Syntax Highlighting and other HTML things. Include an option for showing as text/plain. Maybe ?format=text in URL -- From rmccue
  • Add translation options to Yahoo, Twitter, and Jabber windows --Azander 16:58, 18 December 2008 (UTC)
  • Send Button looks ugly as two lines down. Only have it be a part of the InputBar line, and not the InputBar Options line. Havvy 05:53, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
  • I would prefer that the cursor was more sticky to the input bar, as it is, too many items cause you to lose focus. The way I see it, if not mousedown, the cursor should snap back to the input bar for focus. --Kitsune 21:13, 22 May 2009 (UTC)
  • Topic TAB completion. The main place that this would be useful is when changing the topic using /topic. TAB completion would allow you to do "/topic (TAB)" to have it insert the current topic. This would make it easier for users to make small edits to the topic. This feature is already in irssi.

Logging, Account, Profile, & Channels

  • Merge of logs into one set. Merge same-date logs. Havvy 14:09, 17 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Have the logs area look like the chat pane, for easier viewing. Havvy 14:09, 17 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Option to download logs.
  • Option to delete all logs
    • Checkbox to select then delete all checked
    • Delete all logs for a specific channel/Private Message
  • Ignore NickServ / ChanServ from logging since it poses a potential security issue.
    • Alternatively, allow user to specify nicks to exclude from logs and have Nickserv and Chanserv in there by default.
  • 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
  • Enable channel-specific text encoding on the same server (eg #foo utf-8 and #bar iso-8859-15)
  • log exactly like the user set his prefs (including joins, parts etc.)--Hercule 19:24, 3 January 2009 (UTC), --timclarke
  • Allow user full control of the formatting of logs. This gripe arises from the pesky ':' that is shown between the nick and the chat. An example keyword system is shown below, with all other text displayed verbatim:
    •  %time% <-- required; the timestamp (only required if logs are set to include timestamps)
    •  %nick% <-- required; the nickname
    •  %chat% <-- required; the contents of the chat


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)
  • 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)
  • Rename "Blur received PMs" to "Focus New PMs" and flip the current value for all accounts. (If false, change to true; if true, change to false) Make sure that "Focus New PMs" does not rely on "Focus New Channels" if it currently does. Havvy 05:49, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Clicking channel block shows 'color-wheel' to pick a color.
  • The RESET BUTTON on the mibbit manager: The "reset all" Should reset only the tab and not all setups (we can lost all setups). Maybe you can create other button Reset Tab and change the reset all postion, not too close to save option. User:SKY
  • Any reset/reset all button should have an "Are you Sure" type question associated with it. Havvy 16:32, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
  • For prefs that have a wiki page associated with it, link to that wiki page. Havvy 16:32, 24 January 2009 (UTC)


  • Add a picture for when a person has the close button clicked (active)
  • Option to change close button icons


  • Scrolling the channel/server-tabs with mouse-wheel (like firefox-tabscrolling) - someting like jQuery HorizonMenu. Patrick
    • Basically, when hovering over the tabbar, scrolling up moves it left 2 tabs, and scrolling down moves it right 2 tabs.
  • A way to re-arrange tabs, or separate server tabs from chat tabs.
  • Undo Closed Tab Button --> https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3082 -- Havvy 23:36, 9 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Aging Tabs --> https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3542 -- Havvy 23:36, 9 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Allowing fixed-length tabs (limit #channel tabs to N characters or pixels). then onmouseover, display full #channelname in a ballon, such as already happens when you have the channeltab on the left (alt-up). This is an existing feature of mIRC and ChatZilla, at least. --Kitsune 07:06, 1 October 2009 (UTC) on behalf of account ActiVision


  • 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)
    • CZ logo for Chatzilla people.
    • Mirc logo for Mirc people. {Tatsel vouches for this}
    • Change the on Mibbit icon to a frog. {Tatsel vouches for this too}
    • 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
  • Add option to op/voice/etc. alongside Kick, PM, whois. --TheCainer 13:45, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
  • Add userlist sorting parameter "Typing" so they can be sorted manually (and kept together). {Tatsel @ 7:47 November 3rd UTC -500}
  • Change the "Joystick" icon for a mini-Wii. A lot of users seems not to understand what the joystick is for (Even T tought it was a Bot icon).{Tatsel @ 7:52 November 3rd UTC -500}


  • 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 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: 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
  • In whois, for the 'identified' part, have it show a green check for yes, and a red x for no.
  • Right now newpm sound is activated when someone messages you, but all consecutive messages don't trigger any sound, there should be some way of showing activity if user is not active on mibbit (on some other web-page or browser is minimized etc), if not sound then maybe changing page title? (User:Salman's two cents)
  • Add register link on Mibbit frontpage (and possibly a login option)
  • Status indicator buttons for irc.mibbit.com users (like these). -- Alternativo 20:53, 31 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Provide somewhere the URL to the current channel. --Musaran 01:46, 16 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Nickname input field should display a warning when user tries to enter a nickname that is invalid on most IRC networks (e.g. Frère). Usually spaces and accented characters cause trouble. A small notification box could for example fade in and tell the user about proper nicknames. Even better would be if there was automatic conversion.
  • Make it so that the server to connect to, nick, and any other variables can be passed as arguments in the Mibbit URL. (Ex. http://www.mibbit.com/chat/server/irc.gamesurge.net/channel/mudkips/nick/mudkip or http://www.mibbit.com/chat/irc.gamesurge.net/mudkips/mudkip). This will make it easier for people to set their homepage to Mibbit and have it auto-connect. Archer1742 05:47, 18 April 2009 (UTC)
  • More sound event options for widget (specifically, on someone joining the channel, on someone leaving the channel, on someone sending any text to the channel, on a received "notice") Y 01:45, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
  • Customizable sound events based for widget based on customized alias commands. Y 01:45, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
  • Group tabs for chatting and Idle users. Also some group tabs for Admins and Ops and Voice and Owners.--Clarkcj 01:06, 22 May 2009 (UTC)
  • Some IRC Services allow users to log in with a different nick than their current one (e.g. Bob|AFK logs in as Bob). When you whois someone, their real username also gets send to you. Mibbit however, hides this rawmessage but instead says the Ident is the Username. This could cause abuse by impersonators and confusing among users. Perhaps it might be better to print the raw somewhere (rawnumbers are different for each IRC services-package) and change the current "Username:" in "Ident:" --TheCainer 13:51, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
  • Upon joining a channel, lookup all the addresses of the current users (like the /who #channel command in mIRC). This would allow banning of users that joined before you. --TheCainer 14:01, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
  • add language statistics in the network list (ex: 50% english 30% portuguese 20% other), based in words in the topics

Nick Munging

I want a way to allow website users to keep their own usernames without worrying about collision with existing nicks. (I am thinking of a channel that would only be used through my website -- a private or invite-only channel). The munging would be done by adding a prefix to the front of each nick -- e.g., xyz_Bob instead of just Bob.

Here is the catch: The user would only see Bob, because "xyz" would be stripped before it is displayed. Likewise, if mibbit needed the "real" nick (perhaps to do an IDENT) it would be added behind the scenes.

This allows user-friendly nicks per website without conflicting with the "real" nicks on the IRC network.


To make this more broad, and completely avoid the IRC spec altogether, have an option so that when two people are on Mibbit, they can PM each other outside of the IRC nicks and servers. Basically, if somebody wants to message Havvy, and they know that he is on, either using Home to start a private conversation there (like joining Yahoo or Twitter) or with a command, though I can't think of a good name. /mibmsg ? Havvy 22:16, 21 February 2009 (UTC)


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.
  • Support for (Windows) pocket devices.
  • 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)


  • 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.
  • Have an option through Widget Manager to create (through the use of cookies) a unique, identifiable field. Because, at current, there is no easy way to ban people using dynamic IP addresses and Mibbit; whereas when they use a client it becomes easier through IDENT/realname etc.
    • Edit: eg: If I was to connect to a server through a Widget, Mibbit creates a cookie for me, so that I would connect from something like Mibbit@COOKIEHERE.my-host.my.isp. Or maybe something less obvious, like if you whois a Mibbitian the "real name" would be Mibbit.com user - COOKIEHERE, or something similar. --DrSpice 06:53, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

Embed/Widget and Manager

  • 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.
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • A way to set default user modes (e.g. +x-i).
  • Custom title option for using widget in popup mode
  • Ability to preview changes on widget without having to reconnect to irc server again and again, possibly using fake text and faked open channels so that everything (tabs, text, timestamp, nick column, user-list colors etc) can be previewed. User:Salman
  • Ability to change the height of the main input box. Currently is locked at 14px-ish.
  • Export Settings to .txt file.
  • Add a &password GET argument to be passed to the widget, allowing the referring site to specify the password that should be used to login to the server/identify (in the case of site -> chat integration)--Caffeineinfused 18:43, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
  • From mooncup "I'd like it so you don't have to force them to join a specific channel; It'd be nice if they saw a channel list instead"
  • Ability for the embedded widget to send a message from the user upon the user first logging in, to the channel configured by default. For example, something like "javawizard2539: a new person joined the channel" could be sent to the channel that was joined, to alert me that someone's joined and might need my help. I've been dealing with people that are stupid to the point that they don't realize that they need to say my name to get my attention (even if I specifically state this on the page that I embed mibbit in). Javawizard 05:11, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
  • remember last used nickname for that network (or use your own nickname if you are with a mainclient open also)
  • open multiple widgets (in the same machine) should not open multiple connections to the same network
  • Ability for each widget user to deactivate all of the sounds/any of them.
  • Embeddable widget without iframe, since many communitys do not allow their use.


  • You could make it display "From Mibbit" - currently it's showing "From Web" (Already present)
  • A "Star" icon to favorite tweets
  • A "Reply" button to reply to tweets (@username This is a reply) (just click the username)
  • A "Unfollow" button to unfollow somebody (Could be a "Follow" button if the person isn't followed)
  • Direct messages and tweets that mention your name are highlighted
  • Direct message support
  • Some sort of way to view a person's userpage or the original URL of the tweet
  • Support for posting via http://ping.fm
  • Support for multiple Twitter accounts (multple tabs)
  • Support for other OMB standard providers like identi.ca Laconica


  • A list of current (updated every X minutes) chatters. (nicknames)


  • Optional username/ident support - useful for BNC users.
  • A way to setup Alternative nick, to avoid nick collisions in direct connections to the server.
  • Remove the current quit message, as some people treat it as spam.
It should be removed at least for widget users, since everybody in the room is aware of Mibbit already. -- Alternativo 08:23, 29 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Scripting
  • if Mibbot uses /list - could you make sure that (if it finds no channels) it puts an error in its quit msg (like searchirc's crawler does) - that way server admins can see what's going on
  • Expand the fantasy commands for the Bot. ie: Add in commands like !aop list/add --Jokou 14:07, 17 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Jabber Tab (Google talk and others)
  • Widget users shouldn't be able to ignore operators. -- Alternativo 09:19, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
  • User modifiable connect screen, as the current green button on grey background doesn't fit with the themes of everyone's website/blog
  • ability to deactivate and activate Recent chat outside of the mibbit main client and widget. Currently it is not possible for non-mibbit-Chan-Ops to modify or view the recent chat setting. though only mibbiters can view recent chat, others should get an opportunity to know they're on the record and it'd be great to have bot warn on entrance. --Y 18:59, 3 June 2009 (UTC)
  • add a mibbit app to orkut
    • show my favorite channels/networks in my profile
    • if some of my orkut friend is chatting, let me know where ("im now chatting in channel/network, join with me")
      • that can be a option to msn/yahoo/twitter/jabber status messages also when using the main client
  • share profits with the networks, based in the profits they made to mibbit (to be even more popular betwen irc admins)
  • make sure the ads are showing pertinent staff to ppl of non-english-talking country/networks/channels (to be more profitable)
  • change the wiki/server settings so that "index.php" portion of URI is hidden. If that is not possible, add a .htaccess rewrite to wiki.mibbit.com/ that rewrote URL from wiki.mibbit.com/NICK to wiki.mibbit.com/index.php/NICK -- so that URLs could be shorter, a bit easier to read and faster to type. Currently wiki.mibbit.com/* gets 404, seeming to indicate the wiki.mibbit.com/* namespace is empty anyway. (i.e. instead of http://wiki.mibbit.com/index.php/WishList we could goto http://wiki.mibbit.com/WishList) -- Y 22:18, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

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
  • Automatically generated IRCd config, perhaps also available as authenticated URL for IRCd's supporting remote includes?
  • Option for using an alternate host name to connect to a network, when the server name/network selected by a user matches the network profile. Eg. any server entered matching *.network.com could be automatically translated, in the back ground, by mibbit to connect to mibbit.network.com

Invalid/Not Going To Happen

  • Show the server tab on widgets. I don't remember what, but someone mentioned to me that a message they needed went only to the server tab, so they couldn't see it in a widget.
    • See Widget for how to already do this.
  • Merge the "Mibbitian" and "typing" statuses between people using widgets and people using mibbit.com. I use mibbit.com, but almost everyone else on the same server use the widget instead - so I can't see their typing statuses even though I should be able to. Keiji 17:35, 20 July 2009 (UTC)
    • The widget is an <iframe>, and as such, it is not possible to change the <title> from it.
  • Releasing Source Code
  • Allow each tab to open in an actual browser tab
  • Commands like /slap --> Use aliases
  • /ignore pm -- /ignore needs to block pm's as well.
    • can be done with the Silence command --Azander 17:34, 3 November 2008 (UTC)
      • Not all ircd's support the Silence command. --Jhill 02:45, 9 December 2008 (UTC)
