[1. General][Somenoob]: ROFL nobode iz roling night elf warlocks nemore.
To [Somenoob]: ... are you serious?
[Somenoob] whispers: lolz ya i dun see nun
<GM>[Cairenn] whispers: Greetings, this is Game Master Cairenn, what can I help you with?
(Here I pressed the R button to reply without seeing the GM message)
To [Cairenn]: Night elves can't BE warlocks
<GM>[Cairenn] whispers: Yes, that is working as intended.
To [Cairenn]: Wait! That wasn't my question ><
The above is completely 100% true. So I started looking for an easy way to differentiate whispers
I found Elkano's Colored Whispers (http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/fileinfo.php?id=4519), but it had several problems. First, the colors changed over sessions. Second, most of the colors were unreadable.
So I created TasteTheNaimbow ^_^
TasteTheNaimbow is essentially Elkano's Colored Whispers with some very big changes.
What the addon does is color the name in ALL chat channels based on a cache of the person's name. This means that the color for the name will ALWAYS be the same.
Secondly, because I used an HSV formula to come up with a color, they are all bright, vibrant colors.
As of now, the addon has no options and should work with all chat channels. Please inform me if it does not.
In addition, you can now make sure that you are messaging the correct person just by looking at your ChatEdit frame!
This addon has Khaos support. You can activate/deactivate it via Khaos. Without Khaos, just enable/disable it via the Addon panel. Khaos will also let you disable coloring names in the ChatEdit frame. If there is enough demand for it, I will also create slash commands to do this. At the moment though, I don't believe it is needed.

Changelog: 1.44 Names are now colored in the chat edit frame! Now you can confirm that you are sending a message to the correct person just by glancing at the color!
