I want to customize a theme in irssi to reduce the noise that joins/quits create in an IRC channel. I want the entire join/quit line (nick has joined/left) in dark gray, so that it is almost invisible againt a black background. How is this accomplished by editing the theme file?

Did you ever find a way to do this? – Sybren Oct 30 '14 at 8:22
@Sybren I ended up just hiding those message using: /ignore -channels #chan1,#chan2,#chan3 * JOINS PARTS QUITS NICKS – Lars Oct 30 '14 at 13:18
hmmm not exactly what I want, but thanks for giving me at least some compromise. – Sybren Oct 30 '14 at 16:37
