#6897 new task

Ignore events from contact (plugin request)

Blocking: OS: All



Some users who have bots as contacts don't want to see when the bot is signing in or signing out or writing private messages constantly (e.g. and Twitter):
For example:
A support bot of einfach Jabber support(AT)
A support bot of JabMe sysbot(AT)
A search engine bot of DuckDuckGo im(AT)

Background analysis

Write a plugin that adds an option to ignore events from a selected contact.

Implementation recommendation

Manage Contact > Ignore Options > (A dialog opens)
A) Ignore notifications
B) Alert me when contact mentions my nickname (similarly to the entry muc_highlight_words in the ACE)
See ticket #6895

'Triggers' plug-in allows you to do this?

I don't think it's a good thing: Trigger plugin is about how to notify user when we get something.

Of course it's quite easy to add a checkbox "Ignore event". The question is should we do that in the same plugin or in a new one?

Another feature (request) of this plugin is to define certain keywords which will re-enable alert the user.

e.g. The nickname of the @user at or Twitter (see: #6949 >> can also be set manually) and special events/tags such as #jan25 and so on...
