#18 Remember userlist status like Xchat proper


FFS, there have been three releases of Xchat Aqua, and
months to implement this basic feature that has been
present in Xchat proper for years, there's no way to
set the default state of the Userlist to off, and
windows don't remember their geometry or userlist state

Wtf HAVE you been doing all this time?

I looked through the source with a hope of doing
implementing the feature myself, but the code to tie
Xchat to Aqua is so mangled and kludgy that I found it
impossible to understand. If you're going to write bad
code, the least you could do is ACTIVELY DEVELOP it,
and listen to your users.

The option to set the default state of the userlist
pane is even present in the conf files, but it does
nothing, and has been present and done nothing for at
least the past three versions. I'm annoyed that I
wasted my time, money and bandwidth downloading
worthless releases of your program where nothing has
been achived but to move the dialog options around in a
way that is counter intuitive to Xchat users while also
being contrary to Apple's HIG guidelines. Just what ARE
you trying to achieve other than wasting a lot of
people's time?

If you aren't up to the job of porting this application
to OS X then maybe it's time to close the whole project
down or hand the job over to someone competent.

    Pssh. You're right, it's a little annoying, but I think you
    should be a little more supportive of X-Chat Aqua. Overall,
    it's an excellent program and a very good port. If you really
    don't like it, take that extra trouble to figure the source out
    and submit a patch instead of complaining. If you still can't
    stand it, just don't use it.
