    Any idea why invite links aren't working?

    Not sure this is the right place for idea suggestions, but here it goes anyway.

    I dont know whether it is possible at all, but I'd love to see an option to have the chat window to be adapted based on zone parameters.

    e.g. When I fly into a major city I would like my chat window be a lot larger, so I can more easily follow any conversations that are going on (especially on busy servers it can be a pain to track a conversation), and when I am outside the city for the window to be small again so it is not in the way when I am going about questing / farming etc.

    I can't seem to get Chatter to make play a sound when receiving an incoming whisper, for example. The Highlights module seems to provide this functionality, but I simply get nothing by going to Highlights/Custom Channel Sounds/Incoming Whisper and selecting a sound. Am I missing something or is the module not working properly?

    Sometimes after login or after a bootscreen my second chattab is empty. Every setting are gone.

    how can i disable the option that the chattabs come on top, when i loot or cross the zones?

    Any idea why the class colours are not working? If you /who or shift click on them fine it saves them after but surely it should just auto get them like prat. Im liking the addon other than that and would like to keep using it.

    I'm having an issue where the chat windows are underneath the rest of the UI on logon. If I switch tabs on a chat window they come back on top, but is there anyway to automate this process?

    found a minor error in the GroupSay module

    for the items for /instance, /raid, and /party the shortcode should be "/i "(add a space after the i)

    same for party and raid. there needs to be a space after "/ra " instead of "/ra" etc

    It's easy to correct manually in the LUA but should be added to the next update.

    Is there any sort of ETA when routing highlights through MSBT will be fixed? I eagerly anticipate every update and it still doesnt seem to be fixed :( I can live without brackets around realid real names and only char names and or diablo/starcraft names but the highlight broadcasting through miks is the best thing i love about this addon. Other than that its a great addon!

    @Stanzilla, I'm running diffs on most of addon updates, to see what's changed. As you can see, I'm spotting quite some number of inconsistences now and then.
    In this specific case, I was raising a concern about the code line removal. Though, all seems to be working fine so far.

    This is my signature. There's many like it, but this one is mine.
