Default Cross Guild Whisper?!

Alright, so most of us know about using /w to whisper to other guild members but my wife surprised the heck out of me the other day when I received her whisper.

She is NOT a member of my guild!

So my question is two fold:

#1. Has whisper always worked between guilds?

#2. How many of you know it?

Please keep it clean & don't point fingers

You know, I used forum search for "chat between guilds" which was shorten to "chat" & "guilds" then I searched for "whisper between guilds" which was shortened to "whisper" & "guilds" but that thread was not found either time.

Also why is it in that location? I would look for it in FAQ.

But at least I got to update it while I was there!

Don't know why it is where it is but I used one word to find it "whisper" and set it to search titles only

update here is where it is at in FAQ

As I see it, the reason I didn't find it is because I included the word "guilds" in my search both times. Although "guild" is mentioned many times, "guilds" is not.

Is there a way to include them in searches that include both "whisper" & "guilds"?

Well considering whisper is a chat command you could put in chat commands or whisper.

You can also get it to auto fill-in the name of someone that has whispered you by clicking on their name in the chat window. This helps when chatting between guilds because the auto-complete functions for folks in your guild.

What I was suggesting was "Tagging" Christa's original thread with the word "guilds". But now I'm wondering if a "Tag" shows up if you're doing a regular search?

I tagged the FAQ thread as it has Christa's post from the thread you are talking about.

That is well & good, but you tagged it for "whisper" which it already has in the thread, so it still doesn't show up on a normal search for "whisper between guilds". Although the search now shows THIS thread at the top of the list.

Perhaps you might add "guilds" as a tag also?

I can see why so many people can't find what they are looking for when they search, between threads posted in odd spots for the subject & having to best guess what the poster titled or described it as, it makes it a lot like trying to find how to spell a word using a dictionary when all you know is what it means &/or sounds like.

Update: I did a Tag search for whisper & the FAQ thread was the only one to come up, so now people just have to remember to do a tag search if a regular search doesn't find what they're looking for.
