Description

The topic is quite misleading. I mean, if i write someone a /msg entry, it shouldn't open a query window for me. Or at least print my message in there.
That's also a problem. /msg gets no output. Neither in the main channel window, nor in the query (Although it will be saved in the log).

Other IRC clients print a /msg to the channel window, like

A: Hello
B: No
C: Yes
---> B: this is the /msg

I believe you experience the bug described in #634

But I disagree, /msg $nick should always open a query window, why should it not? or how can you start a private chat using a command? I know there is currently no command to send a private message and not open a new window, but that would be about adding a new command...

I wouldn't say it's a duplicate of #634
I experienced this bug, but the "problem" described with this bug report is somewhat different.

Maybe i should clarify my understanding of /msg.
At the beginning of my irc time i used mirc. So I'm somewhat influenced by it. (Also i used Quassel, xchat(2, ychat), hydrairc, etc. All of them had it in common with /msg)
I knew two commands to send someone a private message. /msg and /query.
/msg can be used to write one person or a whole channel. But i see it as a one way ticket. And usually it was displayed like this http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/130/schritt6test.jpg/ (Not a screen from me.) So everytime you want to msg someone u need /msg nick/channel/,/. before your message

Whereas /query is used to directly open a channel with a specific user (Opened in a new tab/window).

OK, after a discussion on #smuxi we have reached the conclusion that the following behavior seen in Smuxi and irssi is wrong:
  • "/msg nick foo" opens a new tab and sends the message
  • "/query nick foo" opens a new tab and sends the message
The following behavior of XChat is wrong:
  • "/msg nick foo" opens no new tab, but sends the message
  • "/query nick foo" open a new tab, but does not send the message
mIRC on the other hand seem to have the most expected behavior:
  • "/msg nick foo" opens no new tab, but sends the message
  • "/query nick foo" opens new tab and sends the message

For that reason, Smuxi will follow mIRC's behavior in this regard then.
