This project is abandoned.

Whether this project is out of date or its author marked it as abandoned, this project is no longer maintained.

Interface Example

Chitchat is an addon that works as a in-game answering machine. You can choose when Chitchat will begin recording incoming whispers. While recording choose how Chitchat will notify you of a whisper. All incoming whispers are saved locally and can be viewed at anytime through an easy to use interface. Have a fully customized experience with many easy to understand options.

Donations are not required but they go towards funding for continuous development of updates and new features!

Some features include:

  • Whenever you enter the world, enter/leave an instance, respawn at a graveyard or after any loading screen you will be notified of any unread whispers.
  • Automatically start recording during boss fights or any kind of fights.
  • All new whispers including the date, sender, and time are colored purple, for a quick and easy access.
  • Whispers are saved across multiple sessions and exist until deleted.
  • Tracks date and time of each whisper you receive.
  • All saved whispers are accessible on any character within the same realm and faction.
  • Automatically start recording while away, busy or while in town.
  • Always record whispers regardless of away or busy status.
  • Hide incoming whispers while recording and/or display a notification.
  • Have your away or busy message automatically set to what you want.
  • Full support for Data Broker.
  • Choose the color of all unread whispers and notifications.
  • Can now automatically start recording whispers from specific people, so you will never miss an important whisper again.
  • Due to constant updates some features slip the list, submit any features you've uncovered!

Example uses include:

  • Being a Guild Master you will never miss a whisper from a loyal member or friend again from being logged out due to inactivity!
  • You can login on any character and read that long whisper you received right as you logout a few minutes ago!
  • Submit your creative use and see it posted here.

Coming Soon:

  • Request any feature you like to see added!
