@danawhitakerI used to get exasperated by people who didn't have coordinate addons too. Then I realized how easy coordinates are even if you don't have an addon. If someone asks me for a location, I'll reply with something like "35, 62" Then they reply with something like "I don't use cheating coordinate addon, can you explain in plain language"I don't say something like "if you don't want to cheat, why ask for directions? go find it yourself"Now I say "open your map and start in the upper left hand corner. Go 35% of way from left to right and 62% of way from top to bottom. That should be 35, 62. maybe you'll really be at 30, 66 since you're estimating, but that should be close enough. look around when you get there."If they still can't figure it out, there's a simple macro they can use:/script px,py=GetPlayerMapPosition("player")/script DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage(format("( %s ) %i,%i",GetZoneText(),px *100,py *100))(this is taken from this wonderful site right here)http://www.wow.com/2007/10/25/easy-macro-for-getting-your-coordinates/
