Chat Notes

This project has become inactive.

This project is inactive and its default file will likely not work with the most recent version of World of Warcraft. The author may have abandoned it, or it may have outlived its usefulness.

Right click any player in chat to add ChatNotes

Chat Notes is a small utility that allows you to assign notes to players chat messages. Every Guild, Party, Say, Channel and Wisper, message will have the Chat Note added next to the players name.

This functionality used to exist in PALs, CTPlayerNotes, FriendNotes, GuildOrg. The API's changed enough that most of these don't work and haven't been updated. So I wrote this Addon from the ground up.

The notes appear in between the ( ).

[2: Trade] [Bugsby]: (Steven) WTS 4xSolid Stone
[1: General] [Leroy]: (Very BAD tank) LFG for Gruuls
[4: Guild] [Liltroy]: (Troys Alt) Good morning everyone

This is very helpful when you are in a large guild, with many alts.

  • This Addon uses a single global list of player names, so comments are shared between servers and characters. This may change in the future.
  • Notes that are made in the Friends list, are also read and presented as well.
  • Guild Notes are enabled by default, and can be turned off with /cn off.

Simply right-click on a character's name in the Chat window to bring up the Chat Notes menu, where you can Add/Modify, or Remove a note.

Type "/chatnotes" or "/cn" to display a tiny help.
