    Guide on how to get rid of a blinking whisper tab without asking other people for pm!

    If your tab blinking for no reason drives you crazy, there is something you can do about it. Click on whisper and type: "/w yourname" without quotations and press Space. This will open a whisper box to yourself. Now type something to yourself, wait for it to get back to you and then x out of the whisper box. Voila. No more blinking.

    "/w yourname" command is also useful when you want to test filters in chat.

    Good luck

    +1. Thank you.

    PS - You can also whisper god, and he actually fixes this problem!!

    PPS - You can whisper a made-up name as well... one that does not exist, even.

    but then all you are doing is creating the blinking problem for them when they login,.. I dont think thats ideal. (i was told that the very cause of the blinking empty whisper, is that someone has sent you a whisper when you were offline)

    just whisper yourself like this:

    /w[spacebar]yournamehere[spacebar]

    VERY IMPORTANT: HIT THE SPACE BAR BEFORE AND AFTER YOUR NAME!

    type anything then close the whisper

    If they fix it, you'd not know that the game is not frozen..
    Think of it like a spinning hourglass.. Tells you that your game is alive and kicking..
