  • Hides the up, down and menu chat buttons
  • Chat menu button inside the chat frame, at the upright corner optional module
  • Enables chat scrolling
  • Relocates bottom button to be inside the chat frame, and it only appears when you are scrolling.
  • Shorten and removes channel names (the color should be enough)
  • Makes Yell, Whisper, Party, Raid, Guild and Officer channels sticky optional modules
  • Moves the editbox to the top of the frame optional module
  • Lets you choose between several editbox styles (see the second image)
  • Timestamps optional module
  • Disable Tab Flash optional module
  • Disable Text Fading optional module

  • English
  • Spanish
  • German (thanks to disiz)
  • French (thanks to oaudry)

Well since Tekkub has left the Ace Forums and not sure if Industrial has too, I guess they need a new forum to get all assanine in. Congrats Wowinterface Forums! Totally ROFLing.

If you do this, I will kill you.

Ace does nothing but bloat small addons such as this. Ace is intended to make addon coding and addon coding practices easier and better. It will NOT improve the efficiency of an addon such as this. My guess is it would make it several times less efficient.

As for the whole credit thing, I think he provided all credit needed unless Industrial specifically included a license stating otherwise.

What is everyone's up-tight deal with code borrowing lately?

EVERYONE borrows code on any mod that is re-written, re-coded, re-vamped, or improved. Even if you tried to re-write the entire thing, it still shades the original works of SOMEONE, perhaps even someone's code that you never looked at.

People need to over themselves! Honestly.

Code is freebased, and unless your addon actually INCLUDES the GPL (General Public License or whatever its called) embedded in each file associated, then you shouldn't be complaining about it. Perhaps it's in good taste to ask first, and to an extent I agree (although even I hardly do so prior to recoding some of mine - I just give credit to the authors as anyone should), but claiming something as *YOURS* is asinine at best.

jaliborc did give semi-credit under his "Based In" heading. I feel he should have stated that as a "Credit To" category instead, and include the addon name AND authors of the original works he did research on before coding his own project. But IMHO, that's all he *has* to do.

Industrial and Tekkub, both of you are better than this. I'm very disappointed in both your reactions as they seem overly confrontational. If your both just f'ing around, then I apologize for my tongue lashing here.

I stole indie's code for tekChat, so it's actually me whose rights you're infringing upon.

Therefore I demand you give this addon a better name, one that takes more than 3 seconds to think up.

Anyway here is a diff on zChat and your addon.

http://pastey.net/71175-1lha:71174-1dcu

you clearly used my code.
Yes, my mod is based in the code of Chat Box, Rage Skin and zChat. But especially in Chat Box. I only took from your mod the hiding buttons functionality.
And I'm just giving my opinion about your mod, not about you.

This is what i used form your mod:
for i=1,7 do
c = x['ChatFrame'..i]
hide(x['ChatFrame'..i..'UpButton'])
hide(x['ChatFrame'..i..'DownButton'])
hide(x['ChatFrame'..i..'BottomButton'])
hide(ChatFrameMenuButton)
