Seen

Purpose

Keeps track of the last time a user was seen on a channel and what they last said. It also allows you to see what you missed since you parted the channel.

Usage

This plugin allows you to see when and what someone last said and what you missed since you left a channel.

Commands

any [<channel>] [–user <name>] [<nick>]
Returns the last time <nick> was seen and what <nick> was last seen doing. This includes any form of activity, instead of just PRIVMSGs. If <nick> isn’t specified, returns the last activity seen in <channel>. If –user is specified, looks up name in the user database and returns the last time user was active in <channel>. <channel> is only necessary if the message isn’t sent on the channel itself.
last [<channel>]
Returns the last thing said in <channel>. <channel> is only necessary if the message isn’t sent in the channel itself.
seen [<channel>] <nick>
Returns the last time <nick> was seen and what <nick> was last seen saying. <channel> is only necessary if the message isn’t sent on the channel itself. <nick> may contain * as a wildcard.
since [<channel>] [<nick>]
Returns the messages since <nick> last left the channel. If <nick> is not given, it defaults to the nickname of the person calling the command.
user [<channel>] <name>
Returns the last time <name> was seen and what <name> was last seen saying. This looks up <name> in the user seen database, which means that it could be any nick recognized as user <name> that was seen. <channel> is only necessary if the message isn’t sent in the channel itself.
