WIM (WoW Instant Messenger)  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3.6.18 (420)
by: sylvanaar [More]
WIM (WoW Instant Messenger) is a World of Warcraft addon which helps you to manage your whispers by making them into a classic instant messenger interface such as AIM, Yahoo and MSN.

With game play in mind, WIM has a large array of options where you can customize how WIM interacts during different situations, such as while you are in combat or in town talking to friends or selling your crafts.

Some of WIM's major features are:
-Tabbed or windowed messages
-History
-Filtering
-Fully customizable
-and more...

To keep up to date with WIM and its developement, be sure to visit http://www.wimaddon.com. WIMAddon.com is a great place to converse with the developers and users of WIM.

So, has anyone taken up WIM? Is there an alternative addon? It's not compatible with MoP, and I haven't seen anything regarding potential updates.

anyone know a wim guide for filtering and using chars like ^, % as joker signs in filter patterns? on one post at the forums was a link to frequently asked questions, there should be a guide but that link is dead!

thanks in advance!
The problem is that Pazza has quit WoW and he left control of WIM to Sylvanaar but it seems he has gone AWOL.

Hopefully WIM gets picked up soon.

Hi there. Is there anyway to be able to invite a friend even if he whisper me through his battle.net name ? Sometimes you get whispers and its through the battlenet name, and if you want to invite them, you have to open friendlist and invite them throuth blizzard invite button.

Dumb question of the week

My WIM history saves only MY side of chats I have with friends.

Why is this?

I know and remember what I said! I keep the history so I can remember what THEY said.

HELP?

Would be nice if you could add to hide the HistoryTextFrame while loading the history, it would speed up the process on long histories by a lot, loading lot of text into something which is showed is always very slow.

Did even a test on it loading 1018 lines took 30s and no lag with having that frame hidden and took 2m40s with having it showing and load of lag.

I am going to guess that you didn't delete the old wim folder before extracting the new one.

I think that is the source of these errors, so I am going to release another version that will prevent the error from occurring even if you overlay one version onto another. I should have done this a long time ago.
