    Having an issue where RealID whispers are not coming through to chat; all other whispers work just fine. It was working fine before the 6.2. Disabling the addon fixes the problem.

    Having an issue where chat is doubling when I/others talk in chat. All typed messages in the General message box double. Not sure why. :|

    Hi, can You make an option, chatter will post the Guild MOTD after loading all plugins, so i can read it in chat without scroll up.

    Any idea where chatlogs are saved? Had autologging enabled since I've installed Chatter, so there should be a big load of logs somewhere, but I can't really find them.

    @hardvark: Go

    I agree with this poster. The alt click to invite functionality seems to be borked.

    Since installing an upgrade today the alt-click to invite has stopped working reliably even when the option is definitely selected. Instead it opens a tell to the player.

    so tried the alpha builds on the right, but I still get a LUA error when clicking the button to tweet things in the chat box. Is there something I can do to grab the error for somebody to look at? Thank you.

    I realy love the AddOn and I'd like to switch Prat with Chatter. However there is one thing that bugs me so much that I can't and I don't find a way to disable it. Maybe you can help to find it or even disable it in the Lua... When you mouseover the Chattabs and then scroll it switches between the tabs instead of scrolling the chat... Please let me disable this :/

    Chatter core was updated its libraries that it uses however were not. this is why people are still seeing issues and errors. Regardless if you use the standard or nolib. these libraries themselves have yet to be updated. And until such time that they are updated Chatter itself should not tout itself as 6.0.2 compliant. Which technically the core might be, but its libraries which are used to run it are not. To get an idea on how up to date its libraries are.. even examine the ones bundled with the current release. Then users will understand why its still having problems.

    And even a long standing issue for me and others that I looked over. Was Chatter having problems using or swapping into profiles. At times its even corrupted the current profile for whatever reason. And then everything is reset to default. I was testing this with Chatter being the only loaded addon and just doing some stress tests with it in different situations. Whatever is tainting the profiles needs to be hunted down and squished. As well as figure out why it refuses to swap profiles when requested. And act like there was no request in kind.

    Some might consider this comparison moot but Chatter is like how Mac software is designed with elegance and grace. While Prat is like Windows clunky and ugly. And since both types are trying to make the experience unique and well formed. It makes only sense that Chatter be the dominant one based on its design. Yet over time it has slowly and sadly started to fall behind it feels like. More and more issues starting to creep in. Someone needs to really go through Chatter and do some heavy cleanup.
