• Stupid Question On Chat

    From DesotoFireflite@VERT/VALHALLA to All on Sat Mar 5 13:26:47 2022
    Is there a way a user can change there chat handle withen Synchronet, or is that function always done by the sysop in the user editor itself, or does it always have to be done withen the Channel Itself. I know when a new user logs in for the first time, they are given the option for his/her handle if enabled, but I can't for the like of me find anywhere to change it except in the channel itself by using the /nick handle option.

    Also, for the sysops point of view and correctness, should a general user be allowed in a IRC Chat, or should it be security leveled to just the sysop and sysops that call your system.

    Thanks.

    There's no built-in method, but it would only be one or two lines of JavaScript to allow a user to edit their own.

    Also, for the sysops point of view and correctness, should a general user be allowed in a IRC Chat, or should it be security leveled to just the sysop and sysops that call your system.

    That's a sysop's decision.

    Ok Thanks. I will play with it. JavaScript and I are not friends, but I'll see what I can do. I might yell for help <BFG>

    I got it sorted out in Baja, just don't know enough about JS to make it from scratch. Anyway, problem solved. Again, thanks

    ok, thanks. I'll check it out. What I made yesterday is working well, but maybe it will give me some hints to make it better. I'm not to bad with Baja, but JS is another story...lol
