Nickname change question popup
« on: 19 08 2022, 22:56:00 »
Hi guys:

Sorry to bother but whenever I get disconnected and reconnected to IRC, I get this question popup saying that my nickname is already in use even though I have an alternative nick properly set:



Is there any way to disable this popup?

I cannot reproduce.

- I created an account on libera.chat
- set up nick and alternative nick in account settings
- login to IRC
- unplug the network cable
- close Miranda
- plug network cable
- login to IRC again

result: Miranda is used my alternative nickname

Maybe your alternative nick has already been taken by another person. Or you got disconnected twice in a short period of time, so both sessions with both your nicknames are still active.

Thanks for the reply dartraiden. Probably the alternate nick is taken. Regardless, is there any way to disable that question popup?

I think no. Also, I don't see the point in turning it off. In this case, the protocol will not be able to connect without a nickname.

Try playing with the "React on login error" option in KeepStatus settings (you can set some delay (~2-5 min?) to wait until your last session timed out and the old nickname is released). But this will work only if Miranda considers this "nickname already in use" error as a login error (I don't know if it does).

Apparently, "nickname already in use" doesn't seem to be a login error. Thanks again dartraiden.
