Quietly is a simple addon that defines the /q console command, intended to be used in macros to temporarily suppress error messages and "I can't cast that yet" error sounds.

Using the /q command instead of the longhand saves over 90 characters, giving you much more room to work within WoW's 255-character limit for macros.

As an example, this is the macro I use on my Troll Balance Druid to pop all available off-GCD cooldowns and apply Moonfire/Sunfire in a single keybind:

#showtooltip Celestial Alignment
/use 13
/use Berserking
/use Nature's Vigil
/use Celestial Alignment
/use [@mouseover,harm,nodead][]Moonfire

Even if one of the cooldowns isn't up, there won't be red error text or an "I can't cast that yet" voiceover. Hooray!

The first /q is equivalent to:

/console Sound_EnableErrorSpeech 0
/run UIErrorsFrame:Clear()

And the second is equivalent to:

/console Sound_EnableErrorSpeech 1
/run UIErrorsFrame:Clear()

Note that you don't actually have to include the second /q in your macro. It will happen automatically after your macro completes. You only need to explicitly include the second /q if you want errors enabled for the final part of your macro.
