[Gajim-devel] group chat handling?

I second the last point: even with the individual chat, if the users keep their chat windows open while they are away, the actual messages become lost due to large volume of "user has gone offline" and "user has come online" log entries. On many occasions I asked someone in the afternoon "did you receive my message in the morning?" and they did not know I messaged them.

Subject: [Gajim-devel] group chat handling?


first, sorry if I am filling the wrong place with user questions but to me this seems the only place to post these; most of the other means of contacts listed in the community wiki [1] seem not active or existent anymore... :(

Questions: We use an openfire server internally, for user-to-user communication and for one or two chat groups for communicating "important" things the whole team needs to know.

(1) In user-to-user chat, I have gajim configured to pop up a new window whenever a new message comes in, which is just how I want. With the team window minimized or hidden however, I regularly miss messages because I haven't found any way to make the group chat window come up whenever there's any activity in there. Is there a way to configure this behaviour?

(2) In the group chat, important messages usually get lost among loads of "user <xy> has joined the group" and "user <yz> has left the group". 
Can the group chat be configured to suppress such messages? They aren't of much use but greatly distract from actual content... ;)

Thanks in advance and all the best,
