WIM (WoW Instant Messenger) v3

Note from MysticalOS: I am looking for someone who wants to take WIM over. It's become a higher and higher amount of stress to upkeep and has gotten to point where it's too much work to even keep it FUNCTIONAL let alone actually try to improve it any. WIM is not a main project for me and is only something I do in free time here and there. My main focus is other projects that consume most of my time and I do not give WIM the attention it needs to be great again.

WIM (WoW Instant Messenger) is a World of Warcraft addon which brings an instant messenger feel to communication in game.

I created WIM over 2 years ago with the curiosity of creating an addon. Since then, WIM has evolved into what it is today, however so many requests from the community were added into the addon which resulted in bulky and inefficient coding practices that took a toll on both CPU and Memory usage. To resolve this, I decided to rewrite WIM from scratch. Each feature is being reintroduced one at a time and being advanced upon. That being said, I welcome you to WIM 3.0.

    @mysticalos: Go

    I still can't seem to find the option to stop the fading. I went through reading everything to find where the option was. Can you tell us what Tab is should be under? =) thanks Great Addon!

    The option to disable fading is there.  forget where but I know mine is disabled.

    EDIT, i see problem now. since 6.0 the options are invisible so pretty difficulty to toggle now.

    EDIT2, I seem to have fixed problem after about 2 hours of guessing. See if latest release works.

    I fixed your problem too nonnon with armory links for US players.

    Is there a chance for an option to turn the fading off? I swear there used to be a way to stop the fading out. Other wise, awesome addon thanks!!

    I was beginning to think it was me. I was sure there used to be a setting to control fading but just could not find it. Please add a way to configure this. I love this addon but that one behavior is really distracting. I want to turn off all fading and animations as well.
