AuldLangSyne  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3.3.5.3

Click here to lend your support!

AuldLangSyne manages your friends list.

It...
  • will remember information about friends and display it in your friends list while they are offline.
  • allows you to write short notes about these friends.
  • allows you to back up and restore your friends list.
  • allows you to synchronize your friends list between characters. (This is disabled by default, mind you.)
  • provides a FuBar plugin with all this information, all sortable, with configurable colors. (You can also use the plugin's menu to configure the rest of AuldLangSyne.)

AuldLangSyne is modular. Any and all parts of it can be disabled if you don't want them around.

Things this does better than CT_PlayerNotes:
  • Notes can be set to display when a player logs on, and in tooltips for that player.
  • You can have different notes for characters with the same name on different servers.

Things this does better than FriendsFacts:
  • Has a "compact" mode, showing all the info on one line, and the note on the next.
  • Colors class names in the friends list.
  • Has options to adjust which bits of friend info get displayed.
  • Has been updated for recent patches. Oh yes, I went there.

I wrote this because CT_PlayerNotes was the last CTMod I was using, and I wanted to get some practice writing a non-FuBar Ace2 addon. So this resulted. Yes, I know, it's derivative. But I think I do a better job than either of the inspirations.

If you disagree, please file feature reqests or bug reports so I can make a better addon.

If you already use CT_PlayerNotes, load the game with both addons enabled, and type "/auld data ctimport" to load its notes. (Due to the way CT_PlayerNotes stores its data, you will have to do this once for each character whose friends you have made notes on.)

Documentation for the friends list tag syntax can be found here: http://wowace.com/wiki/AuldLangSyne

---

Auld Lang Syne is the name of a song, mostly sung around New Years Eve, whose opening line goes "should auld acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind." (Literally, "auld lang syne' translates from Scots as "old long since", but may be better rendered as "times gone by".)

In this, as in all things, Wikipedia shall be your guide.

I didn't expect this to be so little known. ;_;
3.3.5.3
  • Fix an error in the Fu Module when a friend is on Starcraft2.
  • Prevent errors with friends logged into more than one game in the Fu module.

3.3.5.2
  • Remove Real ID header and labels if Real ID is disabled/offline.
  • Fix for Fu module error when the cached class is messed up.
  • Fix for FriendList module error when cached class is messed up.
  • Use project version number rather than a hardcoded one.
  • Make the modules require the main addon rather than just optionally require it. Fixes the dependency tree.

3.3.5.1
  • Workaround for the attempt to index local 'fb' error in Note module.
  • Add the "Broadcast" localization I forgot to add to the Fu module.
  • Fix for is already your friend bug with Sync module.
  • configurable sorting for Real ID friends in Fu module.

3.3.5.0
  • Fixes to work with WoW version 3.3.5.
  • Fix taint caused by Info module.
  • Leaked variables in Fu module fixed.
  • Add [note] support for FriendList module.
  • Info module will now remove cached guilds from players that leave their guild.
  • RealID support for Fu module.

3.0.8.0
  • Fix for error in Notes module.

1.1.78536
  • Fix for the frame renaming in 2.4.3, which was causing some errors.
  • Split the tainting stuff out from Info into a new (disabled by default) module called Panel, which someday I will get around to rewriting so it's non-tainting.
  • Probably other things. I mean, it's been almost a year of it being intermittently updated on wowace and not here.

1.1.49802
  • TOC update for 2.2
  • Split out friend list coloring into its own module
  • Add guild list coloring
  • Minor bugfixes

1.1.45259
  • Switch to a tag-based system to customize the friend list display. It can now look however you want it to.
  • Offline friends are now shown just as faded versions of online friends (see the screenshot). Level of fading is configurable.
  • Modules can now all run without the core. So if all you want is friend list syncing, you can have just that.
  • Use libraries for friends and guild list.
  • Fix info gathering for unguilded /who results.

1.1.43668
  • Adjusted sorting in the plugin to: name>level>class>(zone|rank|online)
  • Alt-clicking on the fubar plugin will open the guild frame.
  • Stop notes flowing down in the fubar plugin if the character in question has no note.
  • Don't try to add the current character to the friends list while syncing.

1.1.42583
  • Modularize.
  • Add FuBar plugin.
  • Major changes were made. This might be subtly broken in some way. Other addons that think they know things about ALS' interior no longer will.

1.1.36304
  • Update for 2.1.
  • Bugfix when syncing friends.

1.1.29385
  • Add friend list syncing. (If you have a total of more than 50 friends between all your characters, this will complain and not work ideally.)
  • Add new slash-commands:
    • /fnote. Usage: "/fnote <player name> <note text>". Adds a note to an arbitrary player name. This note will appear in that player's tooltip and whenever they're /who'd. (If called with just "/fnote <player name>", all the notes for that player will print out.)
    • /fnotedel, for removing a generic note from a player. Usage: "/fnotedel <playername>".
  • Fix CT_PlayerNotes import (now part of CT_Core), patch provided by Sekuyo.

1.1.25615 - Add a Spanish translation by Shiftos. Update for new TOC version number.

1.1.19032 - Final WoW2.0 compatibility updates.

1.1.18659 - Various WoW2.0/TBC updates. zhCN localization. Fix PvP rank number display in compact mode. Get rid of delay on opening the friends list.
1.1.15514 - Scan /who results for updated friend information. Streamlined the scanning of frequently fired events. Reorganized the options slightly (moved several items under /auld data). Should be ready for Burning Crusade, for all you beta players.
1.1.12320 - Fixed a typo when importing ignore/guild notes from CT_PlayerNotes.
1.1.11323 - Added option to backup and restore friends lists. Options are under '/auld backup'.
1.1.10285 - Added friend note display when friends sign on. Added notes in player tooltips. Added options for both these under "/auld show".
1.1.10156 - Initial release on WoWI.

I am in the same boat. This is one of my must have addons. I have not found any other "friends list" type mod that remotely compares to this one.

Just wanted to chime in with those hoping you get round to fixing this addon soon. This is one of my favourite addons, and I too feel strangely blind without it. It's not my intention to rush or pressure, though. You've been doing great work so far, and we'll all be happy when you've found the time to fix this. ^^

I have this one on my "hack something together so it works" list. So far I have gotten it to show as usual, but it starts throwing errors very soon and won't update on guild joins/leaves etc.

there's also a lot of guild specific stuff that I think needs to be rewritten from scratch, but apart from that there is only some simple bugfixes that breaks this addon atm.

Can't wait to see this updated for patch 4.0.1. Can't function in game without this addon lol.

I love been able to hover over my Fubar to see who is online and now I feel blind.

But Fubar is broken at the moment too, so I'm just gonna go cry.

Not likely to be fixed in time for 4.0.1, intending to rewrite this but nothing usable will be ready by the time 4.0.1 hits. Sorry, only had a little over a month to get addons ready for Cata and this one took the lowest priority.

It's already fixed. You're running an out of date version.

Tonight my boyfriend installed his StarCraftII game and logged in there to check it out a bit. I could see him log on through the RealID toaster that popped up and the message printed in my chat window, and automatically I hovered my mouse over the ALS minimap button. Then the following error occured:

Succeeding this error, I was unable to see the list of friends/guildies through the minimap button. It wasn't until my boyfriend logged out of SCII that the list appeared again.

I asked him to relog to SCII to see if it'd happen again, and it did. So as long as he is logged into that game, my ALS doesn't work properly. Can you fix this, please?

Thank you so much for keeping this addon up to date! I used FriendsFacts until 3.3.5 and missed them when the patch broke it. This addon does the same thing better, and adds even more information that is valuable to me. I also used Friend/Ignore Share, but a) it is bugged in that it can't remove ignored people form other servers from the list, and b) I don't want to share my ignore lists anyway.

Thank you again, and may old acquaintances never be forgotten <3

Not at this time. It works fine with Fubar2Broker. I'm going to rewrite the addon to be Ace3 and Broker but that's a matter of finding the time to do it.
