Epic fail of /j (the join chatroom command)

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: quinox
Priority: normal Milestone: Release 1.3.0
Component: nicotine Version: 1.2.16

There's no way to join public room except through right-click in roomlist tab. When I do this and log, it creates file "Public .log"

typing "/j Public " gives private message "[server] Could not create room. Reason: Room name Public contains leading or trailing spaces."

so why is this an epic fail? The public room doesn't exist, it's not a room. I'm not sure why you should be able to join it with /j

Or is this a secret request for a /publicj command?

That it's "not a room" should not matter! I can right click in room list and 'Join Public Room' via my trackball, why not have a chat command to do it also, via my keyboard? "anonymous" Do you truly believe that this is impossible?

it's not impossible, its just that I dont feel like spending time to fix something that's broken by nature.

The public room isn't a regular room, it has no room members and you cant chat in it. It's a weird kind of thing implemented by the slsk people probably as a debug feature.

making a keyboard command to join it its real simple, but then I'll put it under "/public" or something since /j is used for rooms, not for curiosities
