Wykkyd Enhanced Chat is an addon originally programmed as a piece of Wykkyd's Framework. It provides small features to clean up and slightly enhance the chat window.
Hide default chat background
Prevent chat text from fading
Force the chat window not to fade (also available via in-game setting)
Insert a new, more configurable chat background (including custom colors)
Enhance the Edit Box
Label font type, size, style
Edit box font type, size, style
Insert a new, more configurable edit box background (including custom colors)
Add LOOT announcements
Party loot (rare or better)
Also makes the chat window able to be resized to the size of your entire screen
Advanced Setting Controls (available in all Wykkyd Addons)
Save To Default - This feature saves a snapshot of your logged in character's CURRENT settings as a save set named SYSTEM DEFAULT.
Load System Default - This loads the current SYSTEM DEFAULT as your character's settings and effectively sets your character to MIMIC the SYSTEM DEFAULT. This behaves exactly like Mimic below, with the exception that the SYSTEM DEFAULT only ever changes when you manually save to it from any character, by clicking Save To Default.
Mimic... - This sets the current logged in character to adopt the settings of another character until this value is changed. This causes the logged in character's saved settings to reset every time you log in or Reload UI to be like the mimic'ed character. If you set George to mimic Bob, as you save settings on Bob while playing those settings will become George's settings too whenever you log into George. As you play George and change his settings manually, those changes become temporary unless you clear the Mimic box. This affords some fairly awesome opportunities for your play sessions.
Wykkyd's Preferences (where available) - This will Reload UI and set your active character to the basic settings that Wykkyd uses for that addon for his characters as his STARTING point, he customizes each character from there and you are encouraged to also do so.
Reset All - Resets all settings inside the Advanced Setting Controls section for that addon, for that character
Use of SYSTEM DEFAULT allows you to basically create system-wide default settings. I say "system" because these settings are not filtered by account name. So if three people share your computer, they all adopt the system defaults (if they selectively choose to do so). This is a "neat trick" for people with multiple accounts as it lets you share settings across all of them.
For example, if you log into your first character and set every Wykkyd addon up the way you want. Then in each you click "Save To Default", one by one. You've now established your "baseline", if you will. You can then log into each character you have (regardless of number of accounts), including that same first character, and inside each, in each addon, click "Load System Default". Now every single character will use the same settings. In fact, because you saved defaults from character 1 and then set character 1 to use those same defaults, even that character is inheriting the SYSTEM DEFAULT every single time it loads. This means if you're on character 7 and decide to change your default for all, all you have to do is tweak your settings and click "Save To Default" and every single character you set up this way gets those settings automatically.
WARNING: System Default, and Mimic, can be dangerous. As of this time this ALSO includes saved item sets, gear sets, quest header settings, tracked achievements... IE: it includes data saved by the addons too. THIS WILL BE CHANGING IN THE FUTURE to be more intuitive and robust. But I didn't want to delay this feature until that was 100% polished. After all, this is fairly useful as is.

I develop these addons in my free time. I have a full time day job, also have a wife, kids and pets. I do not create addons for the purpose of being paid. However, tossing me a few bones eases the stress and frustration after endless hours of "code grinding" because it adds to that feeling of work "paying off". It also helps to say I make money on this when the wife ask why I spend so much time doing it
