What is it?

A small addon to display notes besides character names in chat and tooltips.
It will pull information from the guild notes by default but these can be overridden with custom notes.
The main purpose of this addon is to display your guild's main character names alongside alts.
However you can use it to set a custom note against any player, in any guild, on any server.

chat examples


To maintain maximum compatibility with the many chat addons out there, notes are placed into the chat body, rather than modifying the sender's name.
A side effect of this is that you will see two colons if a character note is displayed, eg:

[Channel] [CharName]: (Note): message

Due to the way the WoW API provides guild information, it may take up to 30 seconds from login for notes to start showing when you use the addon for the first time.


The most commonly used commands are listed here, however there are more available in the readme and in-game help.

Character names are not case sensitive and are assumed to be on your realm. If you specify the realm then the character name and realm are case sensitive.

Passing the wildcard * to a command that expects a character name will cause it to use the name of your current target.
