Yeah, but other interested forum users may not have been. I tried to compile it on my Mac to see the various changes; I use it sometimes if I'm on Windows anyway. But it says it needs gtk, and gtk says it needs pkg-config, and the only source package of pkg-config I could find didn't have a configur...

Well, what's wrong with http://spreadadiumx.com , http://spreadadium.com , http://spreadadium.org , etc.? Seems to work well for Firefox. Again, it's easy to get domain name ideas from Firefox, but it's just as easy to use them incorrectly. SpreadFirefox is not a site for users interested in switch...

Would there be any confusion due to one directory of adiumx.com being controlled by a different group of people from the rest of adiumx.com (especially since it's a directory and not a subdomain, as switch.adiumx.com would be; I agree that adiumx.com/switch is better)?

I just don't understand the idea of having a separate page with "get" in the name. "Get" implies getting Adium, meaning downloading it: the freakin' download link is already on the homepage! Getfirefox.com (which getadium.com would obviously be a play off of) only existed so user...

How come? I'm not saying make make the entire site publicly editable. Just give us more editing control over the Wiki and take into consideration any suggestions that the users have about the site. I don't necessarily have a specific desire for these things myself. I'm only bringing it up because th...

[edit: Sonofapreacherman posted while I was typing, but I agree with everything he said. The only thing I could see making a whole new site for would be a SpreadAdium sort of thing, which is a bit much, IMO.] I think the front page (adiumx.com) looks fine as it is: it has a useful download link (wit...

*raises hand* I certainly don't have "accept only from users on my buddy list" enabled. Most of the time when a stranger IMs me, they end up being my friend, perhaps on a friend's screen name, or having made a new screen name. There was a time in the past when on one of my screen names I h...

Features like this are often possible, they just aren't focused on or implemented because of the possible negative consequences. For example, this IM broadcasting feature could be used for spam or questionable "mass IM" messages.

After trashing the Adium caches folder, a search for 'e' by content still found only 600 logs out of over 5,000. And jgubby said that he already tried trashing his caches folder as well. Does it have to do with how Adium changed logging formats at some point, from plain text (or whatever it used) to...

I just searched (definitely by content) for 'e' and got 580 out of over 5,000 logs. That's weird; I know that more than a tenth of my logs have the letter 'e' in them, if for no other reason than all my screen names have 'e' in them (FredHope, etc.) and the screen name is printed in the log file.

Well, he said that the message was similar to how the guy talked, so he must know him somewhat. There's no way that there's a widely distributed virus going around for Adium. Does he use Adium? Is it possible that he wrote some kind of virus for Adium to play a prank on you? That's all I can really ...

The problem with an app like Adium supporting raw HTML (I assume you meant you wanted to type HTML code into IMs or your profile) is that it limits the ability to type the < and > characters. Since Adium is an IM client, its first priority is to make sure you can send whatever text you'd like; becau...

You can always delete ~/Library/Caches/Adium and then reopen Adium and the Log Viewer; it will reindex every log file if you do that.

I'm pretty sure it's officially pronounced like stadium without the 's'. I can't find the Trac page for it; maybe it's gone. It definitely is pronounced in a variety of ways, though.

edit: er, without the 't', too; thanks Tipo 61.

It works fine for me and always has. Please be more specific; indicate your version of Adium, version of OS X (just a good thing to do in general for bug reports), whether or not you can reproduce the problem (i.e. if it happens every time), and if so, how. You can also submit a new Trac ticket ; Tr...

I was wondering about that, 'cause someone said it was "fixed" for .90 and I figured it couldn't be that hard to merge it to the .8x branch, since everyone seems to hate it...but if they haven't fixed it at all yet then that makes more sense.
