Title: Log in Notice
Post by: Fixhog on April 15, 2010, 10:00:38 AM

Ok so currently the bot will give a log in notice to any and all your toons you log on.
Would it be trouble to program it to NOT notify for both on/off IF you have an Alt still online?
You could log off/on any alts again no org notice (spam) because you’re not "new" arrival.

So in short
Your first logon toon would give notice.
Your last toon to log off would give normal log off notice.

!online will still report your multiple toons if someone look s at the !online list.
No change there.

Yes, I can see what you mean .. since the bot holds an alts list, and it keeps track of who is what/where .. it could be useful when players have many alts and they dual+ log then you do get a few 'X logs off' then 'Y logs on - X's alts' messages.

As far as implementation goes .. I'm not sure the current code makes it easy to see if a player is online under an alternative name .. but I don't imagine it would be difficult to get around this limitation.

I think we'd add an option to enable/disable this facility, as some people in smaller orgs might not recognise who is who to start off with, but nontheless I think its a reasonable idea.
