    Unfortunately adding pauses to macro's is not possible.

    I know it's possible.

    Someone taught me before and forgot.

    Shammy in BC taught me it, he made one for his Heroism.

    He'd /cast Heroism and then yell three things with a slight delay "THIS" "IS" "SPARTAAAAAAA"

    for text it is possibly, for abilities it is not

    /in 1 This
    /in 2 IS
    /in 3 SPARTAA

    this may not be the correct syntax but thats the general idea. It has been a while since I made one. The numbers represent second btw, not line numbers

    This is correct.
    As an example to why I know this is correct, I have something like this myself :3

    /in 1 /g U-
    /in 2 /g ZU-
    /in 3 /g MA-
    /in 4 /g KI
    /in 6 /g NARUTO RENDAN

    ;D

    You thought wrong.
    You can only add 'pauses' for chat messages tho, not spells.

    Blizzard didn't remove it, because they never added it.

    /in is provided by an addon

    If you don't have one, get InDemand

    Is it? I've been using it for Sacred Shield refresh messages on my paladin, and i don't have any addon that messes around with macro's afaik.

    I do have another question though; Is there a limit to the ammount of seconds you can set? Rather; Is it possible to have your character yell some random funny stuff every x minutes/hours/days by pressing a macro when you log in?

    I don't see why they'd do something like that when there sould just be an addon that provided sequenses, not allowing macros to ahve them.

    Also the person who showed me said he didn't have one.

    Any Ace addons should provide it, as it is part of the Ace libraries. My ability to do it comes from RatingBuster, which uses the Ace libraries. It doesn't necessarily have to be an addon that alters macro settings.

    I don't know for sure, I just doubt it's an addon, it seems weird that the addon wouldn't just tell you that it did it or have a built in feuture for it (as in it sets up it's own). Why ninja add something like that?

    Well you can know for sure, and it is an "just an addon." The Ace libraries that many addons use provide lots of functionality, that's how they were designed, and many addon developers use the Ace framework to help in their addon development. It's not "ninja adding" as you assert, it is the nature of the Ace framework.
    This may be of interest to you for learning what a framework is:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_framework

    Here is the exact code, straight from the Ace library file:
    C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\Grid\libs\AceEvent-2.0\AceEvent-2.0.lua, Line 968.
    Code:
    	_G["SLASH_IN1"] = "/in"
    	SlashCmdList["IN"] = function(msg)
    		local seconds, command, rest = msg:match("^([^%s]+)%s+(/[^%s]+)(.*)$")
    		seconds = tonumber(seconds)
    		if not seconds then
    			DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage("Error, bad arguments to /in. Must be in the form of `/in 5 /say hi'")
    			return
    		end
    		if IsSecureCmd(command) then
    			DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage(("Error, /in cannot call secure command: %s"):format(command))
    			return
    		end
    		self:ScheduleEvent("AceEventSlashIn-" .. math.random(1, 1000000000), editbox.Execute, seconds, editbox, command .. rest)
    	end
    That parses the /in command and delays it appropriately based on the number the user sets. This is not part of the default set of functions for WoW, it is only provided by addons, and many either do this by design, or use a library which does it. That is what it is, you can know for sure, 100% now, because that is exactly what it is, and it's proven here for you. I can see three addons I have that use these Ace libraries; AtlasLoot, Grid, and PallyPower. A previous version of RatingBuster had the AceEvent library included, but I don't believe the most recent ones do, so my mistake on my earlier post. If you were to install AtlasLoot, Grid, or most any addon which uses Ace libraries, you would get the /in function along with them.
