Ratbox and Netsplits

Postby tabarnac » Sat Apr 23, 2005 3:09 am

This is now getting annoying.

When a netsplit comes, you can't change your nick to one that's now on the other part of the netsplit for a period of time, server replies "Nick/channel is temporary unavailable: nick".

As I see the good side of this (helps eliminate nick collision on net-rejoin for short splits), it's unfortunately annoying and useless when it turns out you been disconnected from the server during/before the netsplit and you want to get it back.

The server should accept taking the nick back only if the (splitted) nick is from the same ident@host instead? Problem solved.

I bet this will be expensive in terms of memory, keeping track of all nicks and associated user@host.

they keep the list for op points for use by chanfix, so while limited it may be possible that no one can take the nick of someone with op points, during a split, but the amount of ppl changing their nick during a split is limited so i think its better just to sit it out really
