The device used for a connection to Riot is displayed publicly. It might be something that it should be hidden by default, or if it serves some purpose that is needed, maybe a better wording/UI to make clear it's not a privacy issue would be enough - issue link -- CarlosSoriano
If an IRC user that has op gives op to a Matrix user, they become Moderator (“power: 50”, a.k.a PL50 in Matrix jargon) on the Matrix side. -- Alexandre Franke
A Matrix user can talk to Nickserv (@_gimpnet_nickserv:matrix.org) just like they would on IRC. WARNING: giving your password this way means trusting matrix.org with your Nickserv password. This needs to be combined with the !nick command with @gimpnet-irc:matrix.org. -- Alexandre Franke
The main issue I've had is with encryption. It got enabled for a room I was in; afterwards, we were required to validate every device used by every person in the room, which was a lot of devices and was essentially impossible to do. Since it was impossible to turn encryption off, we eventually had to delete the room and its history and create a new one. Exposing the encryption option seems potentially damaging. I also wonder about the encryption model in general - validating every device doesn't seem practical. -all issues and link to the most relevant one -- AllanDay
Is it possible to give bridged IRC channels a nicer appearance in Matrix? It would be good to be able to rename them and give them an icon of their own. (For example, renaming #gnome-design to "GNOME Design") -- AllanDay
Compact mode has landed in 0.10, you need to enable it in the settings. -- AlexandreFranke
It changes window.title too often, causing the address bar to flash annoyingly each time that happens when used as a GNOME web app. -- MichaelCatanzaro
They deliberately change the title to notify when something important for you happens. Maybe you didn't change the notification settings? (You can either by default or per room) -- CarlosSoriano
British English spelling is uncomfortable to Americans. How to change locale? -- MichaelCatanzaro
It's good for you. -- AllanDay
Is it possible to hide join/leave messages? Low traffic channels are crowded with these messages making hard to read the log. It would be nice to have an option on the settings. - issue link -- TomTryfonidis
This is done to protect the bridge from the spam. -- CarlosSoriano
