|Summary||0004429: Ideas - Country Name Support|
|Description||The idea is simple, add country name to the users /whois information, under a numeric which is not currently used by anything else.|
For example: Nick is connected from Australia (AU)
Currently I do this via a Bot and a localized ip2country.db but I think it could be useful if it could be applied server-side, using a localized ip2c database (I use a free version) so external lookups are not required.
I have also noticed there is no actual numeric for Country (according to https://www.alien.net.au/irc/irc2numerics.html)

|3rd party modules|
I think that this should be done in a third-party module
It would be quite possible
Hook in to WHOIS, do the lookup on the client who is being whois'd IP, and return an extra line in WHOIS output
Most users wouldn't want this information shown, in a similar sense to they do not want their uncloaked IP address shown
||I Like This Idea!|
||if you're going to go far enough to make the ircd know which country the ip is from, might as well make it bannable too.|
Interesting idea. Quite possible with our (module) infrastructure.
Would be nice if we wouldn't require yet another library or other thing though, maybe via DNS lookups like how blacklists work?
Anyway.. post-4.0 ;)
blank: There could be a mode for a user to hide their country in WHOIS (like Umode 'p' does for channels in WHOIS).
I'm pretty much for this idea.
Apparently nowadays there's a 3rd party module that does this, called m_geoip_whois "displays users' countries in WHOIS".
