Friend & Ignore Share

  • Creates a global friends list, boot strapped by the current friends of each alt you log in as.
  • Adds friends that are in the global friends list who are not friends of the currently logged on alt.
  • Adding a new friend adds it to the global list which will transfer it to your other alts as you log them in.
  • Removing a friend removes it from the global list and will remove it from your alts as you log them in.
  • Tracks your alts and adds them to the global list of friends so that your alts show up as friends (for name completion at the mailbox). Can be turned off with '/fs alts off'.
  • The global friends list is partitioned by server and faction (Horde or Alliance). PvE servers allow you to have alts in both factions, but they can't be friends.
  • /friendshare reset - Resets the global friend list to the current alts friend list. Useful if the global list gets corrupt (never seen that happen).
  • /fs import - imports the global friends list (again). Usefull if some global friends were not imported b/c you had too many friends already.
  • Syncronizes your ignore lists across your alts as well. Players have to be online to be ignored so you may get 'player not found' messages at login when trying to syncronize ignores.
  • /is import - imports the global ignore list (again). Useful if someone you have on your global ignore list logs in.

To get started just log in each of your alts. From that point on, all your alts will share a global friends list and a global ignore list.

This MOD should work fine reguardless of the WoW client language; however, it does have one or two messages that could be localized.

    I have this working on 6.2.4. Been running it without any problems. Just one line to edit.

    I don't know if I'm allowed to post the edit ?

    Ignore Share spam

    The problem is that you can only ignore someone who is currently logged in. This is a Blizzard limitation that I have no control over. You don't want to remove people form the global list just because they are not currently logged in.

    I suppose the mod could look to see if the user is logged in before trying to ignore them to avoid the spam. Thats not a bad idea. I will look into it.

    Edit: SendWho() appears to be the only way to see if someone is online, and that opens the Who dialog. I have never been very fond of the ignore sharing portion of this mod due to the requirement that players be logged in for you to add them to your ignore list. This requirement is imposed by the AddIgnore() command. I may just remove ignore sharing from this mod.
