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.

    I should read comments more often. I have no non battletag/battle.net friends so I didn't notice this until today so I didn't know to even look for it. For all intensive purposes the bug should never have occurred with my 5.4.7 fixes, but it did because my fix was being bypassed entirely by something I didn't notice. When curse is actually packaging things right, I'll tag a release. Right now it's not packaging my last commit.

    Anyone else having problems where messages sent from other people are not saving in the history log? it only shows the messages I sent out not recieved. It works fine for Realid friends but not just ones I add via add friend =/ thanks!

    I have been experiencing the same issue Carman1998 posted about. WIM history is not storing the messages people send to me. It only records the messages I have sent out. I am not sure when this problem started, but I believe it started after patch 5.4.7 was downloaded. A fix for this would be very appreciated.

    Having a problem with WIM where I go to and review my old messages. It only show the one I've sent out but can't see the ones that other people sent to me. Is there going to be a fix for this soon?

    Currently, WIM isn't saving the messages of non-battletag people. It will save my messages in the conversation, but it doesn't save the messages of other people. Any help?

    r394 or higher will now save all realid and battletag convos under users battletag instead of toonname. This should aggregate all conversations far more cleanly. When realid convo saving was originally added, blizz encoded player name and gave us no other way to save it but tooname. Now, it is possible to save it under btag so that should be much better.

    I've searched their forum but couldn't find an answer: Does somebody know if there's an option to save a conversation I have with somebody via his Battletag name to ONE history?

    Here's an example: I'm on my hunter, he's on his priest, we talk. He relogs to his monk, we keep chatting in the same window (I see his Battetag Name, it just changes colors depending on his charakter's class). I change to my monk, he relogs to his deathknight,... All the time, we keep chatting. At the end of the night, if I want to re-read our conversation, I have to remember when who of us logged to which charakter and have to solve a (sometimes huge) puzzle :/ Both of us have multiple charakters, so sometimes, it takes more then an hour to go through every charakter of mine to piece our conversation back together.

    Is there a solution to this problem? Or at least some kind of work-around :)? I've used Whisp before someone told me about this addon and there I had a history which was linked to the battletag-name, so I think, it might be possible here, too.
