About SuperGuildInvite

SuperGuildInvite 7.5.0

SuperGuildInvite is an AddOn developed to aid any person who wishes to invite new players to their guild

  • If you are here to express your hatred against this type of AddOns, please consider this: GuildShield
  • GuildShield has been updated and now works for everyone on less than 2000ms latency

FAQ - Please read before posting questions!

Can I remove players from my blacklist?

  • No you cannot at this time, and this is intended. There might be some way in the future.
  • As of 6.6 players are locked for a minimum of one month and then removed.

Can I send the whisper before the invite?

  • No. This used to be possible, but blizzard made changes to restrict this. The invite now has to be coupled with a physical action (i.e. a button press or mouseclick) in order to be valid. This can't be changed.

SGI keeps listing Starter Edition accounts. Can I stop that?

  • SGI has no means of recognizing starter editions (There is no function for that at this time). You can prevent this by setting your limits to 21+, though this will make you miss all real accounts at less than level 20.

SGI invites guilded players!

  • This is caused by a bug on blizzards side. When a player goes offline by a dissconnect or closing the WoW window (Not by the normal Logout) they will stay a while in the who interface and appear guildless. This is why SGI thinks they are guildless and tries to invite them.
  • It can also be caused by the fact that someone beat you to it. Players in your list were guildless when found, but when you click on them to invite they might already have been invited by someone else.

My Minimap icon/Frames are missing!

  • You can reset the positions of all SGI frames by /sgi framereset
  • /sgi options should show the options frame. Make sure "Hide Minimap button" is not checked.
  • If you can't see the frame after typing /sgi options, try /sgi reset followed by /sgi options to show the options. Note that this will reset att your settings to default.

The Who window pops up all the time! Help me!

  • This is an issue cause by other AddOns, interfering with SGI. Try disabling other AddOns to see which one is the cause. (WIM is known to cause this)
  • As of 7.0 this issue should be resolved.

SuperScan is the reason to use this AddOn! SuperScan is a function which will methodically go through all logged in players on your server, determine if they belong to a guild and if not they will be put in a waiting list. They stay in this list for four seconds, in order for GuildShield to do its job. They are the placed in your invite queue where you can invite them to your guild by a simple click. SuperScan is also quite. Using the Who Interface in the background lets you go on with your daily business while having a steadily growing invite queue. The time it takes to do a complete scan depends on the settings you choose, but from my experience a scan takes between 5-10 mins.

Inviting Players

In order to invite a player from the invite queue you can do one of three different things:

  1. You can press the button labeled Invite: # to invite the first person in the queue, and the next and so on...
  2. You can assign a keybinding to the invite button, which has the same effect as pressing said button. This is done in the options menu.
  3. Lastly you can use Choose Invites, which is a window that displays all queued players, along with relevant information about them. Now you can simply left click on the players that you wish to invite, and right click to remove them from the queue.

Locking / Blacklisting

Locking is a way for SGI to keep track of which players you already have tried to invite during the last two months. If you have tried to invite a player, and they received the invite, they will be on this list and will not be bothered by you again for at least 2 months. It does not matter if they accepted of declined your invite. Only if the invite did not reach them will they be taken off.

Invite Whisper

You can specify up to 6 different whispers to send randomly to the players you invite. SuperGuildInvite supports 3 modes of inviting players:

  • Whisper after inviting - The invite goes out, SGI determines if it reached the player, and then sends the whisper only if they received your invitation.
  • Invite Only - Only invite, no whisper.
  • WhisperOnly - Only whisper, no invite.


All settings can be changed in the options menu of SuperGuildInvite. In order to access more than limit you need to check Advanced options (/sgi options)

  • Limit - The level range you want to search for, i.e level 10-90 or 80-85 etc.
  • Race - Adds a race filter to the search, starting at the specified level. This divides the searching over the different races, to make sure you don't miss any players due to a high population server. This makes the SuperScan Slower
  • Class - The same as race, except it's for the players class.
  • Interval - Specifies the size of each step in the search. 5 would result in 1-5, 6-10, 11-15 etc.


Filters allow you to remove certain player types from your search. To add a filter do the following:

  1. Open SGI Options
  2. Press Filters
  3. Press Add Filter
  4. Fill out the filter form, read the in game instructions.
  5. Press save If a player matches a filter they will not be added to your queue.

Fix for upcoming changes in 4.3

Improvements to SuperScan

3.1 Changes

Guild Sync

You will now automatically sync your blacklist with your guild members.


SuperScan is a new feature that scans every zone in the game (i think...) This scan takes a long time to complete due to who search limitations.

The ESC button

The ESC button should finally not be hijacked, and should now works as normal.



You can now blacklist players that you never want to invite to your guild. This can be done in 2 ways. 1. /sgi blacklist name 2. Turn on "Auto Blacklist" and choose how many declines you want before automatically blacklisting the player (default: 3)

Invite Whisperers

It's now possible to try to invite any player whispering a whisper containing the following word combinations: 1. inv and guild 2. inv and "guildname" 3. join and guild 4. join and "guildname"

Customize your Invite Whisper!

It's been requested many, many times and now it's finally here! By a simple click on the "Customize Whisper" button you can enter your own, personal whisper to be sent to players before inviting them. By typing NAME or LEVEL (note CAPS) in the box SGI will switch them out for your guilds name and level. Example: Typing this: Hi! Would you like to join my awesome guild NAME? We are level LEVEL and quickly growing, join for much fun! Will result in (for me): Hi! Would you like to join my awesome guild Freedomm? We are level 25 and quickly growing, join for much fun!

Manual Search

Some users requested a possibility to make a manual search for new member, without having to change zones. Now you can! By going in to Options via /sgi config and pressing "Manual Search" you next /who will be searched for guildless players, and inviting them if specified.

Cross-Realm areas

SGI will no longer try to invite players in Cross-Realm areas such as dungeons and battlegrounds. It will automatically turn off upon entering and turn on again when leaving.


The ESC key

I honestly never found out why the ESC key was hijacked by SGI, but after rewriting 90% of the code the problem seems to be gone.

Off by default

Some users complained about having to log on to every alt to turn SGI off when it was not needed. This is now a thing of the past since SGI now will be off by default upon the first use.

2.2 You are now notified when someone in your guild has a newer verion of SGI than you.

2.1 Added a changable lockout period for reinviting, as requested.

2.0 Completly reworked the addon

1.1 bug fixes

1.0 first edition.

    did you download the latest version (6.0c)?

    that's the problem, SGI is currently using only the english system messages as triggers for whispering a player. french support should be added in 6.1 I think

  • #646

    it's in french

  • #643

    ok, what language do you use in your wow-client?
    if it's not english, could you please tell me what the system message "You have invited xxx to join your guild" is in your language?

    Where is "make a more thorough search" gone? It found 1-10 85's per min. but when I search now (without the function), it only find 1 every hour?

  • #634

    In the SGI 6.0c Options right below the "filter 55-58 death knights" option.
    I can see it clearly in the options, I don't really know why you don't :-(
    but there are some issues with this option (at least on my client) since it creates a huge /who-queue which goes on forever even after the addon stopped :-)

    This might help for the german special characters Sealed
    Those needed for german are bold now ^^

    Character Encoding in World of Warcraft

    World of Warcraft supports UTF-8 encoded strings of unicode characters; in UTF-8 encoding, ASCII characters can be represented using 1 byte, while most unicode characters typically require multi-byte sequences. You can simply use a UTF-8 enabled text editor, and save unicode-containing .lua files using UTF-8 encoding.

    Alternatively, you can manually encode the multi-byte sequences required by UTF-8 using Lua escape sequences. The table below shows escape sequences for some european characters:

    à : \195\160      á : \195\161      â : \195\162
    ã : \195\163      ä : \195\164      æ : \195\166
    ç : \195\167      Ä : \195\132      è : \195\168
    é : \195\169      ê : \195\170      ë : \195\171
    ì : \195\172      í : \195\173      î : \195\174
    ï : \195\175      ú : \195\186      û : \195\187
    ü : \195\188      ù : \195\185      Ü : \195\156
    ö : \195\182      ó : \195\179      ô : \195\180
    õ : \195\181      ò : \195\178      ø : \195\184
    œ : \197\147      Ö : \195\150      ñ : \195\177
    ß : \195\159

    might I point out that I hate this text editor, I can't seem to get a nice readable table instead of a jumble of characters...
    I give up... hope you can read it

    You could enable that in my editor, so I just saved the files in UTF-8 :)


  • #621

    The "Invite and whisper" feature doesn't works for non-english games because of that :

        elseif strfind(msg," to join your guild.") then
            local name = strsub(msg,strfind(msg," invited ")+9,strfind(msg," to join your guild.")-1)
            if shouldWhisper(name) then

  • #622

    Yes this is a known issue and a localization system has already been written for 6.1. However right now it only support German. I can't translate to any of the remaining languages so if you want it localized you have to submit the translation to the post posted a bit further down.

  • #633

    No, thank you ;)

  • #630

    Thank you very much!

    Do you want any credit for your translation, if so, under what name? :) The credit will be show every time a locale is loaded:
