TB Silent Ignore

This project is abandoned and its default file will likely not work with the most recent version of World of Warcraft. Whether this project is out of date or its author has marked it as abandoned, this project is no longer maintained.


Silent Ignore

Have you ever wished you could put someone on ignore, without him or her knowing it? We all may have legitimate reasons for doing so, and this is what TB Silent Ignore does! This add-on replaces your standard ignore list, and will essentially work in the same fashion, except players you are ignoring will never know you are not receiving their messages. This can be especially useful to grief a player who is harassing you. He or she will keep messaging you and wasting time.


TB Silent Ignore gives you the ability to attach comments to players you are silently-ignoring, so you never again forget why you added someone to your ignore list.

Infinite Ignore List

Do you get frustrated with gold sellers or casino spammers? Are you unable to add more of them to your ignore list because it is already full? Unlike the built-in, Blizzard ignore list, TB Silent Ignore is not limited to just 50 names. You can add as many people as you need to your TB Silent Ignore list.


With TB Silent Ignore, you no longer need to add a player to your ignore list on every single alt you have. Your new ignore list is now shared across your entire account so you don't need to keep your lists synchronized yourself.

Offline Players

The default ignore list requires players to be online in order for you to add them to your ignore list. How much sense does that make? With TB Silent Ignore you no longer have to wait for someone to come online to add him or her to your ignore list. In fact, you can even ignore NPC's if you want!

Outbound Blocker

Blizzard allows you to message people you are ignoring, which sometimes leads to awkward situations where you message someone and never receive his or her response, and start wondering why. Oh, it's because he or she is on your ignore list! To address this, TB Silent Ignore blocks outgoing messages to players you are ignoring. This functionality reaches a bit farther, blocking auction bids, outgoing mail, and group, calendar, guild, and arena team invitations).


Since the TB Silent Ignore list is not maintained by Blizzard, players who no longer exist cannot be automatically cleaned up. Instead, TB Silent Ignore will automatically purge players who have not been seen in a given amount of time. This option is configurable via the Blizzard Interface menu (default: 6 months).


Just type /ignore, or open your Blizzard Interface menu, to configure your Silent Ignore list, and convert your standard ignore list to use TB Silent Ignore. You can add or remove people from your TB Silent Ignore list with /ignore <name1>-<realm1> (comment1). The realm should only be specified for players on a different realm. You may also right-click their names in chat, and click Ignore. The add-on does not check the names you enter, so nothing is stopping you from silently-ignoring offline players or even NPC's.

Third-Party Support

Since the TB Silent Ignore list is not managed by Blizzard, you will be receiving add-on messages from players you are ignoring. This may actually be desirable behavior (eg. for better damage meter synchronization support). Individual add-on authors who wish to support TB Silent Ignore simply need to add the following line to their CHAT_MSG_ADDON handlers:
if TbCore and TbCore:IsIgnored(sender) then return end


TB Silent Ignore depends on TB Core and TB Chat Enhancements. The latest releases of TB Core and TB Chat Enhancements are included with TB Silent Ignore so you do not need to download them separately.


Localization for TB Silent Ignore is open. Please contribute your translations using the CurseForge contribution page.

About the Author

I am a professional software engineer who plays World of WarCraft way too much and develops add-ons as a hobby (crazy, I know!). I have played the same character since the release of World of WarCraft, a hunter called Valana, in the Team BATTLE guild on the Mug'thol realm. I raid some, but my primary focus in this game is PvP.

Please donate to help keep this add-on going!
