Features and Bugs

Incognito stopped working for me with 6.0.2. Other people in my guild are still using it without any issues. I have enabled and disabled it, uninstalled and restarted the game then reinstalled it, updated my curse client and did it all over again. I deleted all my other addons until it was the only one and it still doesn't show up on my in game interface/addon list.
worked great till update.
Helpfull addon not only for fun and family guilds.
When I enabled this addon it started copying messages other people wrote on guild chat, and posting them under my name, very spammy. Any ideas how to stop it and could it be conflicting with another addon?
OK it seems to do this when interguild link is enabled and you are the relay. Not sure what to do about it.

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.
is there a way to add custom channels?
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 It should be fine to call a rewrite of this outdated mod the same for easier finding etc.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.
