About Friends

I wrote this addon to share all my friends and ignores amongst all my characters. It is very simple, there is no command line , you can simply enable it or disable it.

All your friends and ignores are stored in a global settings file, per account and server (but not per faction - this can be done at another time).

When you login your current friends and ignores get updated from this global list.

When you logout the global list gets saved along with any changes you have made while you were logged in.

If you have multiple accounts and want to share the friends/ignores lists between them, you will have to copy the saved file manually. The file is to be found in a path very similar to this "C:\Program Files (x86)\World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\MYACCOUNT\SavedVariables\Friends.lua"

If you wish to make changes please update this addon directly.

Version v1.0.6

for WoW Release 5.2 MOP

No code changes, simply a change in the supported version so that it does not show out of date.

    Great addon! I love the simplicity and does exactly what I need.

    I am showing this out of date on add-ons. Any updates for 5.0 and MOP?

    @martinboy: your own characters are added automatically because it helps when you mail items to your othe characters they come up first. Did not think anyone would not want to see their own characters

    The ignore list is shared as far as I know. When you approach the in-game limit of 49-50 characters it will not work anymore. Another reason might be that you are suffering lag when you log on (eg busy times in SW) and then you log off very quickly. Both friends and ignores lists are maintained by Blizzard and there are many cases when you log on, due to server lag, that for a whole minute or more your friends lists appear empty. Probably considered a very low priority item from Blizzard.

    my only request when you get around to it is an option to not add my alts. Like this other person, I use postal so it's not nessessary for me to have my alts on my friends list. other than that it's a nice addon seeing as friends and ignore share is no longer being maintaned

  • #10

    Considering I use postal, it's not necessary to have my toons added to my friends list. Is there any possible way to prevent this from happening, as I need all the friend space I can get? Thank you!

    Wasnt this addon suppose to share ignorelist cross charaters? It doesnt.

  • #7

    My characters are getting added to eachothers friendslist. Why is that? Its annoying.

  • #5

    Version 1.0.5 should fix the Alliance/Horde problem.


    Also, you can do "/friends_restore" and that should restore your friends list in case it ha sbeen deleted. But hopefully you will not need to use this.

    Two issues.

    I signed onto several of my Alliance characters on one accout.  Everything OK with this addon.  I signed onto a Horde character with the same account.  Received message about friends must be in same faction (I expected this from the descipriton of the addon).  I signed back onto one of my Alliance toons.  This addon removed all of my friends from the friends list.

    Apologies for the problems caused. I believe this is now fixed (version 1.0.4 or better)

    This AddOn is removing all my friends and ignores across all my characters. Don't download it.

    This addon also saves the notes you have made for each of your friend characters.
