Hey, since the official update for miranda (icq), its back working for me too. But, my Nickname is not shown anymore in chat windows.... Instead, it shows my First and Last Name. I would like to change it back that only the Nickname is shown. Anyone knows why this happend, and how to change it back? Thx!

From server we receive these

firstname
lastname
friendlyname = nick
friendly = custom contact name (default = "firstname lastname", but if you rename contact in official client, these custom name stored in "friendly" field)

We use friendly by default because of many people in the past have renamed their contacts and these people want Miranda to load these custom names from the server

Probably we should implement a "use friendlyname instead of friendly" option... Then you and your contacts will use nicknames.

Yes, that would be very great if you could implement it  :)  :THUMBS UP: :DRINK:

It is better to implement this in the message plugin so that the feature does not depend on the protocol.
After the next development version update, you can manually create (via DbEditor plugin) MyHandle UNICODE key in protocol settings,

Only TabSRMM currently supports this key.

I use to get this reply:

Quote (selected)
We are discontinuing support of older ICQ versions and other unofficial clients. To continue chatting, you need:
1. Link a phone number to your account here https://icq.com/412282975/verifyphone?sc=08801278
2. Log in using the official ICQ client which can be downloaded at https://icq.com

Are my messages sent or not?

You can try to write to me at UIN 8338981
if I receive your message, then you can still send messages

Miranda will definitely work in the future, but the server may request a phone verification at any time (such idiotic IT laws in Russia)

No messages. So you need to link phone number via icq.com website. After this you can continue to work with ICQ. Sorry, Miranda cannot help, because decision of verification is server side
