Here are some Tweaks for creating a nicer overview: * Tweaks


Adding the account:

In the following example we are using the login credentials:

Username/E-Mail: frank@gmx.net

Password: password


   1 00:44:31 <@dynamite> account add jabber frank\\40gmx.net@vz.net password
   2 00:44:31 <@root> Account successfully added
   3 00:44:32 <@dynamite> account list
   4 00:44:32 <@root>  0 (jabber): jabber, frank\40gmx.net@vz.net
   5 00:44:32 <@root> End of account list
   6 00:44:51 <@dynamite> account 0 set server jabber.vz.net
   7 00:44:51 <@root> server = `jabber.vz.net'

   1 00:51:43 <@dynamite> account 0 on

The nickname problem:

Like facebook onsite chat StudiVZ also uses different usernames (alphanumeric), when first connecting.

This is also to be fixed by setting the nick_source account setting to %full_name.

account X set nick_source %full_name

You will have to reconnect this account afterwards.

   1 00:53:43 <@dynamite> account 0 set nick_source %full_name
   2 00:53:43 <@root> nick_source = `%full_name'
   3 00:53:48 <@dynamite> account 0 off
   4 00:53:48 <@root> jabber - Signing off..
   5 00:53:51 -!- Netsplit im.openroot.de <-> vz.net quits: +_6ffa2f97a209391b
   6 00:53:51 <@dynamite> account 0 on
   7 00:53:51 <@root> jabber - Logging in: Connecting
   8 00:53:51 <@root> jabber - Logging in: Connected to server, logging in
   9 00:53:51 <@root> jabber - Logging in: Authenticated, requesting buddy list
  10 00:53:51 <@root> jabber - Logging in: Logged in
  11 00:53:51 -!- PeterParker [6ffa2f97a209391b@vz.net] has joined &bitlbee
  12 00:53:51 -!- ServerMode/&bitlbee [+v PeterParker] by im.openroot.de

Wohoooo! We have proper nicknames! :)

Tweaks:

Adding a Suffix/Prefix to the usernames lets you keep track of users on different connections:

account X set nick_format %full_name[VZ]

   1 01:34:47 -!- PeterParker[VZ] [6ffa2f97a209391b@vz.net] has joined &bitlbee
   2 01:34:47 -!- ServerMode/&bitlbee [+v PeterParker[VZ]] by im.openroot.de

Now all our StudiVZ accounts can be recognized by a trailing [VZ]


Thanks,
