|Target Version||Fixed in Version||3.2.4|
|Summary||0002511: Modify the channel bans limit without editing sources|
|Description||Sometimes, it may be needed to increase the number of bans we can put on a channel (example: 100 instead of 60, the current value).|
On the forum, a moderator reply me that I have to edit source files without any indication. In addition, I know about the support of edited files...
Is it possible to specify this value during the ./Config script or in another way without having to modify a file and to lose your support ?
I sincerly need to increase the MAXLIMIT value, and I'm not sure to be alone in this situation ;)
Thanks you in advance :)

Perhaps in the future some settings will be more dynamic, but for now:
You got permission from me (w00 ;p) to modify the following 2 values in struct.h:
MAXBANS and MAXBANLENGTH
Note that you should not modify any other settings because doing so (for most) is dangerous, causes incompatability, (possible) crashes, etc.
MAXBANS and MAXBANLENGTH are safe to modify however.
Example: put MAXBANS at 100 and MAXBANLENGTH at 2048 or 4096 (yes, IMO the default MAXBANLENGTH is a bit too low).
MAXBANLENGTH is the total stringsize of all bans in the channel added up together btw.
I did suggest this for ./Config -advanced, but apparantly it got forgotten or something.
||I think it should be in ./Config -adavnced.|
||I wonder if MAXBANLENGTH should just be calculated from MAXBANS*(NICKLEN+USERLEN+HOSTLEN+2)? In theory that should be about enough for any ban list :P .|
Bugz: that's exactly what I said
aquanight: no, then you can just as easily remove it, you are missing the purpose.
||The purpose (if i remember rightly) is to stop bans using too much memory?|
