no, it is bad.
the check should be done every minute, because you don't get notified about people going offline.
imagine a world where you get an "exploit warning" for EVERY contact checking for you, EVERY minute.
you would get 500 warnings per hour.
i would search for you and kill you, or just stop using the icq network.
and also we would increase our icq network traffic by 100% ;)

and how about "multi-checking"?

&RQ could have the hability to select more than one user for invisibility check.... maybe even groups of users!

however, i don't know any other client but &RQ warning you about exploit, so alex could have not minded on such problem.

i should make the warning optional..hmm
1) always warning
2) warning only from my contacts
3) no warning at all

and i think i should always show no warning for exploit coming from contacts in ignore-list.

This could be done to that "Confirmation box" too...
"This action will make you visible to the contact. Do you want to continue?"
  • Don't confirm before checking offline contacts

Hi, does anybody know of icqDFM ? It shows you who's online and if I use it it doesn't show up on &RQ. Must be another exploit that the one you're using... and it shows when a user goes online invisible or not.

I just tested DFM and &rq showed "is using visibility exploit".

There need to be an
4) warning if not in my contacts
i think.
Or maybe better do this warning just in tray notification ?

Good idea about multicontacts check on-demand.
But checkup every minute is realy bad idea.

Rejetto how about an option where you could chooseparticular uins to scan if they are invisible in predefined periods?

i'm not interested in making such a tool out of &RQ
if someone want to make such feature as a plugin, it is ok
but i don't want to work on it
