[suggestion]ICS Interaction

When someone sends you a tell, it would be nice if it would appear in the chat window by default. Because sometimes people would send you tells when you are away and when you come back you completely miss their message. And if not by default, at least an option as to make it so by default.

You mean that you would want a chatbox to be automatically opened for every person that sends you a tell? And would that be only for personal tells, or also for channel tells?

There is a maximum to the number of chatboxes that can be open at one time. What should happen if all chatboxes are already assigned?

Yes.
Personal tells. Why not channel tells? Because if you're interested in a channel and are about to leave you can just open a chatbox and type in the channel number and then leave for a moment and then come back and see all the tells since you're gone. There also exist a command to see all the tells since the last X minutes on FICS. While if you miss a tell, it's lost.

If the maximum number of used chatboxes is reached then don't do anything as it is now...
