Comment (by snilek):

 I think this is a very useful feature that should be a part of every IM
 client supporting group chats (MUC).

 Now, if I want to permanently "be present" in multiple rooms, I have to
 close the all the chat windows opened by pidgin on auto-join (one window
 with tabs, but still a bit annoying).

 Also, for that matter, the "minimised" auto-join should probably not
 display the "auto-joined" room in the roster as containing "new messages"
 when a part of the chat history is sent to the client at the moment of
 joining the chat. (As sometimes happens for me with a jabber MUC, which,
 for some reason, does not open in a window on auto-join, and is just
 marked as having new messages in the roster.)

 There is a third-party plugin for this functionality
 (https://github.com/kgraefe/pidgin-hide-chat-on-join), but it does not
 work, at least on my platform (debian/linux) — the windows open
 irrespective to "hide on auto-join" checked.
