1. When you turn filter off it remembers it.

2. A /mute feature to tell you how long you're muted for.

Post if you agree or with other suggestions.

Thanks admins for reading this.

a /mute feature is already there, maybe then can add a /time feature?

Well for non users /mute could be check time. Idc about the command really it could be anything.

/stealth

Excludes your name from the /room list and "x is away" announcements. Also hides "x has connected/disconnected" messages. Does not hide messages you send publicly. You can set this while in chat to immediately activate it (and it will be stored in your cookie file so next time you enter chat, it will be on, thus hiding your join message), or in your profile. Maybe a VIP-only feature?



A working /color.
Currently /color makes the background of sites like Youtube the same color as the text box in chat. Yeah, wtf is right.



/log
Logs chat messages to a file, by default C:/Documents and Settings/USERNAME/My Documents/netnexuschat.log (or /home/USER/netnexuschat.log). Off by default.
/logpath defines the path it stores the log in.



/historylength
Changes how many lines are stored on screen at a time. Right now it's like 50 lines so you can't read what someone said a minute or two ago...



/shutup
Stops the "new messages" title replacement from occurring.




- Links should always open in a new tab/window.
- Navigating to a place in your browser's history when you didn't have chat open should not close chat.
- Rooms are f'd up. How come I can be in like 20 rooms and see chats from all of them? Old chat was better, in that it was more IRC-like.

Oh, and all these should be stored in a cookie, or better yet, in the NN database so they don't return to default when you close a session.

Yeah stealth is a good idea and I'd also like to be able to see more lines of previous text.

Or another one TC mentioned in chat... the ability to NOT be away.
