That's true, but what is a 1 line nicklist good for? When it's on the right side you see eg. 30 names. That's fine, but you can not copy-paste. So you set it top. You got 10 comumn in a row, so you need at least 3 lines to get as much name as with the right option. (Plus the separator if you need that too.)

With a top, 1 line nicklist you have to always scroll the nicklist. With this feature it's much easier to see if sby is available or not.

You may change number of nicklist rows by look_nicklist_min_size and look_nicklist_max_size . So if you set look_nicklist_max_size to 1 you will see always only one line nicklist.

Nicklist is a nice feature, but it has some problems: When it's on the left/right side it makes hard the copy and pasting. When it's top/bottom it eats up too much space.

I use nicklist only to see who is away and who is not, so it's unnecessary most the time. Here is my possible solution for this problem:

Nick completion should check if the person is away or not and should colorize the person with col_nick_away when he's not available (like aspell colorize the mispelled words).

So i would be able to easily copy-paste and nicklist would not eat up 4-5 lines from my chat buffer.
