Tabbed Buddy List for Clones

Post by Kash »

Programmign a way to have only one instance of multiple clones would be really handy for people who like chat on multiple names at once. (or in my case have over 300 buddies and need more than 1 name to talk) I know it wouldn't be THAT difficult, all you would have to do is possibly add more tabs like "Online" "Online 2" "List Options" etc...

You could also make a panic button for those children out there not allowed to talk on AIM :-X. Poor 12 year olds...

That's a really interesting idea!

I'm not sure how practical it is, with all of the preferences settings at the top and the message/chat buttons at the bottom being set up to only work for one screenname. We'd need to find a way to get all of the AIM features like that to correspond with the active "Online" tab for a feature like this to really be worth including.

one way you can do it is have an edit box or drop-down list labeled "clone #" or "change settings for clone #:". that way everything can be the same, but if you want to change the settings for the original list, just select 0 (or original, or something) in the list and make your changes. if you want to change the settings for the first clone, select 1, etc. or you could make it a menu with a checkmark next to the clone number.

I like this idea if it could be implemented. Obviously, it is just another alternative to having 2 icons (maybe instead of different colored icons, etc.) in the systray.

This is possible b/c ive seen a program that can do this.. It makes a window for all ur services AIM ICQ MSN etc... but if you could make one just to work w/ AIM clones then that would be a great addition

Are you sure it is not trillion because you can download skins that make it look like AIM and ICQ, because with the discription that you are giving us, that is what it sounds like.

And another way to have Tabbed Clones is through the little earth and cd and money drop down menu above your buddy list (only on 5.x) And have another instance of AIM in there, that would be neat and organized in my opinion. :D
