what? :|
I have no idea what you're talking about, can you send a screenshot ? and the protocol log (Ctrl-D) when you connect... you can send it by PM since it will contain personal info (emails)

ohhh I see, that's new!
how does WLM handle those nicknames it shows them as they are ?
I suggest one of three things :
1 - see the nicknames as they are and smile whenever you see someone helping a good cause
2 - use a custom nicknames for those users
3 - write a plugin for this

Should be definitely in a plugin... Take a look at ColoredNicks for main structure of the code...

ok,
I looked at how WLM handles this.. all the *help and *whatever stuff is converted into an 'im' smiley, so in the contact list, you will see a smiley next to the nickname.. and in the chat window, you will also see the smiley when you type *help.. try it with a WLM friend if you have one...
maybe we should add those smileys to the default skin's smiley set...

Hello.
I made a change to be able to have this new emoticon:

Add this in "settings.xml" (config of skin)



Quote from: "add in settings.xml"

      ...

      <emoticon>

         <name> Help </name>
         <text> "*help" </text>
         <text> "*red+u" </text>
         <text> "*bgca" </text>
         <text> "*naf" </text>
         <text> "*mssoc" </text>
         <text> "*9mil" </text>
         <text> "*komen" </text>
         <text> "*unicef" </text>
         <text> "*sierra" </text>    
         <file> Help.gif </file>

      </emoticon>
      ...


Put this smiley in the "smileys" folder:

I hope that this change can be added for version 0.97  Smiley

SAludos!

Yes, Ekz, thank you, that's exactly it, and it's been added to the TODO for 0.97 for a while now, we're just waiting for the new smiley set to release 0.97 along with these new smileys.
I can't use the smiley you put because it's taken from WLM, and for copyright issues, it can't be used.
