PrivDeaf - Syzop_

Post by eQuiliBrium » Sat Mar 06, 2004 9:44 am

PrivDeaf - Syzop_

This adds a usermode +D: makes it so you cannot receive non-channel privmsgs (except from opers, u-lines and servers). So like +d, but for private msgs.
After looking at this new module it kinda gave me an idea.
This new mode looks similair to the one of conferens room uses.
I belief it was [(/mode nick +m) dont know it its still like that]
Anyway, the only think i mis in this new module is that there is no msg given to the user that is trying to mesage you.
Just a convermation that the user that is using mode +D will not accep any privat messages.
Just like mode +T dos in the new version of unreal (3.2)
T = Prevents you from receiving CTCPs
nick does not accept CTCPs
Or perhaps giving the user using mode +D a swhois saying that "this user is not accepting any privat msg"

Just a thought ...
Let me think about it

Hello,

I agree in your suggestion, and I don't think it would cause any bad if such a response was displayed to the person who sends a message to a +D user. I've made a simple patch that does what you need, and will give you the URL to download it, but you should know that if you don't contact the author, he probably won't know anything about this suggestion and won't add the feature directly to the module. By the way, I'm not sure if he would accept it at all, this is a question that only he can answer. Here's the patch for you:

http://www.angrywolf.org/m_privdeaf.c.patch

You can apply it with the following command:

patch m_privdeaf.c m_privdeaf.c.patch

@ AngryWolf,

Thanks you for your respons, BUT i have installed the new module edit that you have made
But the new module doc not do what it stands for, in fact i am having some error's

After a "/rehash" the server take's your mode +D away and even if you
aply "/mode nick +D" again there is no external message
Same as before ...
Let me think about it

Errors

Post by AngryWolf » Sat Mar 06, 2004 7:37 pm

Sorry, but your English isn't quite understandable. First of all, I assume 'some' means '2', just to be exact.

Problem 1 (losing umode +D): on /rehash all dynamic modules are reloaded. At the time a module is being unloaded, all objects (including user & channel modes, snomask, etc.) are unloaded too. That means, the module has to be permanent (not unloadable) to keep user mode +D all the time. Of course this can be easily done with a modification, but then the module will lose compatibility with beta15 and require beta18 or a latter version. I guess it's not a big problem, since we rather use beta19 or RC1 nowadays. Here is a patch that fixes the problem:

http://www.angrywolf.org/m_privdeaf.c.patch2

Apply with the original m_privdeaf.c. If everything's fine, in the output of /module you will see a [PERM] flag at the line where m_privdeaf is displayed. I still suggest to try to make contact with the author of the module, because I can only provide patches,

Problem 2 (changes don't come into effect): have no idea what you mean by 'external message', but I guess you either forgot to recompile the module after patching or you tried to send a message to a +D user who is actually an operator or has an U:Line. In both cases there's no 'module doc' problem, and everything is documented well.

I agree, it's simple to add and a bit less mean ;).

I'll fix the mode-lost-after-/rehash issue too.

Hmm, looks like Syzop doesn't like Win32 support. :-) Probably it was intentional or... can I ask why? I'm just curious. Well, ok, I've deleted the patches, as of version 0.0.6 they aren't needed any longer.

It's nothing to do with Syzop, it's Microsoft's fault. Read this thread and you'll see what I mean.

Yes, I know and have already read that thread. I only wanted to say, the current code of PrivDeaf is rather designed for dynamic loading. On Windows you can only compile modules statically, hence many Windows users do so. I think they would also want to have PrivDeaf too in their win32 builds, that's why I asked the question. By the way, none of codemastr's free modules seem to have this problem.
