Or worse, are your messages not showing at all?
Here's how to fix this (until staff fixes it permanently):
1. Open friends list.
2. Go to the chat tab.
3. Leave every channel you see in there.
4. Type /leave WorldDefense
6. Type /join World
It also helps if you do this in-game:
1. Press Escape (ESC)
2. Click Interface
3. Click Social
4. Disable this: "Auto Join Guild Recruitment Channel"
5. Click Okay.
This removes 1 more unnecessary channel from the list of channels in the chat tab, in relation to the steps in the fix further above.
I personally use this macro to fix it for myself, since I like being able to monitor the WorldDefense channel too:
Code: Select all
/leave WorldDefense /join WorldDefense
Yes, it's already reported on the Bugtracker: https://truewow.org/bugs/view.php?id=7109
I've lost count of the number of people I've had to guide in whispers so they can join the rest of the players in the World Channel.
So, I'm posting this here as a general guide. A sticky would be appreciated so it's more visible.
An in-game broadcast that tells players to follow steps #4, 5 and 6 would also help.
