Trade Secretary: Who Crafts
Tracks who can craft what; tell your friends to whisper you '!wc' to view your directory. Use /wcc to update it.
As of May 20, 2009: This addon is unsupported for the time being. AddOn authoring was only a hobby of mine. Mike-N-Go is not currently playing WoW, thus not creating or maintaining mods for WoW. If someone wishes to submit a patch for one of my mods to WoWInterface, you may within the bounds of the license bundled with the mod.
code hunter has posted an update for this mod for 3.1 here.
Note: With patch 3.0.8, the item caches of your WoW program have been reset. This may cause disconnect problems when the addon trys to send an link that has not been added to the cache. Best course of action is to have people link you their crafts, and add them again. If you still get DCs, then either give it some time or purge the database. I will be looking into a real fix for this.
Recent Changes and Important Information:
Note: It is not recommended to run both CraftyGnome and this addon together; this addon is meant as a replacement for CG.

• Added error message to an otherwise silent failure of /wcc in pre-30400-0.1.07 reversions (format: '/wcc <crafter name> <link of profession>')
Often, you might ask yourself or your friends, "Who crafts item x...?" Solution is upon you! With Who Crafts, it is easier then every to check who can craft an item. Not only for your eyes, but for others' as well; people only have to whisper you the trigger! This addon was built off of Crafty Gnome, by Rabbit, and has had many features improved. As it works off of whispers, only one person who is online per friends group needs to have it; making it very useful to those not wanting to install the mod. Note that this mod only helps you keep track of who can craft what, there is still some legwork involved by acquiring the links.
About the Name:
Why is this called "Trade Secretary: Who Crafts" you ask? Well, this version of "Trade Secretary" is to make it easier to keep track of who can craft what, and would be the first installment of a future suite that gives one a secretary for their trading, and other secretary-like activities whenever I happen to make them.
To populate or update the database:
1) Open your craft window or one from a hyperlink.
2) Key '/wcc <crafter name> <link of profession>' to populate the database
Remember to update from time-to-time, as new craftables are not added automatically.
To search the database:
1) Whisper to yourself (or tell others to whisper to you) "!wc"
2) In guild/raid/party, prompt with "!wc"
To send a query:
1) Key /wcs TARGET !COMMAND SEARCH
To purge the database:
1) Key /run WhoCraftsDB = nil
2) Key /run ReloadUI() or logout
1) Trim the SV file at .../World\ of\ Warcraft/WTF/Account/<ACCOUNTNAME>/SavedVariables/WhoCrafts.lua
To tell others how to use the mod with the built-in message:
1) Key '/wci <player name>' and an instruction will be whispered to that player with "Please whisper me '!craft <item name>' to try my AddOn, Trade Secretary: Who Crafts. It can help you find who can craft an item you want made. Also, you can message me through guild or party chat. Whisper me your profession links to add them."
To send a search to the clipboard:
• Key /wcp. Format: /wcp !COMMAND SEARCH
• /wcp returns an edit box that you can cut and paste the item name, wowhead link, and who can craft the item. This can then be copied, via your clip board, to a text editor or a forum. Make sure to the site follows the instructions on http://www.wowhead.com/?powered to get the mouse-over links to show. !COMMAND SEARCH would return the same thing as if you did a normal search, yet /wcp is disabled for !trade.
Feedback requested, but not limited to:
Any errors in the mod
Ease of use
After you decompress the file, copy the Trade Secretary Who Crafts folder into your Interface/AddOns folder under your World of Warcraft Installation Directory.
When updating Trade Secretary Who Crafts, please make sure to have a copy of WhoCrafts.lua SV backed up! Make sure to read the updated version for any other upgrade problems.
A note to my fellow authors:
If anyone wishes to use more then a few lines of my code, I request you credit me by saying, "This product includes software developed by MikeNGo and Rabbit" somewhere as a comment, or in your documentation. I also hope that anyone who would take the time to read my code, would take the time to send me an e-mail of what you think, or what can otherwise be improved.
Caveats, Known Bugs, etc.:
• The data structure is not finalized, and is subject to revamping
• There might be some display issues with whispers hiding/showing esp. with whisper manager addons like WIM.
• Some crafters might be added to the list twice with /wcc
• The "NAME searched Who Crafts with: !COMMAND SEARCH. NUMBER results returned." returns a few less results less then there actually are. This will be fixed in reversion 30400-0.1.06
• If you use a mod that uses '!' as a whisper trigger, let me know so I can set Who Crafts to ignore the input of that trigger
