It would be nice to have an option to have global messages be shown in the server tab instead of in their own tabs.
I'm usually connected to several servers and when my internet connection goes down I get all these extra tabs I have to close when it reconnects.
This would help provide a cleaner interface.

[Engine-IRC] Reworked how private notices are handled

- A notice will no longer open new tabs, instead show the notice on the
server tab. This avoids NickServ/ChanServ spam (closes: #554) and
also IRCop tab spam (closes: #226)
- Notices from users you share channels with will also be shown on the
channel and the server tab to make it easier to see their notices.
(closes: #38)

  • Complexity set to Low

Yes those wallops messages are annoying, as they spam your tabs.... I also noticed this issue on freenode.

  • Target version changed from 0.8 to TBD

THe question though is how to identify "global messages"? From a IRC client POV they are just regular notices or messages...
