    @nyyr: Go

    well already a native update for legion would be nice ^ ^ ,

    also i notice people in my guild having difficulty with the name setting because of the " Okay " button lol , not sure if you can streamline that ? ,

    i have also been thinking if a simple profile system would be in order ? , like now the addon will use set configuration for all chars and servers , but say i have my main Alliance guild on Lightbringer server and allow to show my real name because i have friends there; but some obscure Horde alt guild on Darkspear server they should not have to know it for sake of privacy, now we need to disable the addon per char basis .......

    any new features you might have heard / thought off since WoD aswell maybe :)

    Updated for 4.0 and fixed a small bug (officer channel is now treated as guild channel and not as raid channel).

    Do you plan to update it for 4.0.1? It's basically just changing the version in the toc file to 40000. The rest works still fine.

    Why bother? The only reason it's a rewrite is because the original code is not open source licensed. If Stonedonkey wants the name back for whatever reason, fine. But as of now I don't really see a reason to change it.

    If this gets annoying I'll just kill this project and keep the AddOn for myself.

    Have ignored this mod for a while, but as there is an update today, another comment.

    Sorry, but unless you have written permission from the original author Stonedonkey to "take over" the original mod, you are still ripping off the name. Ripping it off for your own mod with similar functionality, but different code.

    Why not "Incognito (fan update)" or similar?

    The original incognito author stopped developing addons about 2 years ago. It should be fine to call a rewrite of this outdated mod the same for easier finding etc. I thought about naming it incognitoo or incongitwo, but that just sounds wrong.

    Nice that there is now an updated Ace3 name add mod, in the spirit of Identity.

    Not so nice that the name for it is "borrowed"/ripped off from the very popular original Incognito, which still works in Wow 3.x.

    Might want to think about choosing a name for this that isn't a ripoff of another mod that provides the same functionality.
