    Is this addon cause disconnects for anyone else? When I use the pop up feature I get disconnected after 2 - 3 reports

     

  • #1043

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE,

     

    Make it so WE can set the message that gets sent back to the person.

  • #1041

    What happened to reporting anal spammers? there's a lot of them recently, please update the addon to target "ANAL", thanks.

  • #1042

    As I recall, you can add or remove target words via the config. "Anal" is iffy because there are a lot of words that use that letter combination.

  • #1040

    Any chance BB could get a plugin to report foul language, like the spam reporter? It's gotten kind of rough with the resurgence of subscriptions lately.

  • #1038

    Everytime i "report" someone with this addon i get disconnected. Whats with that

  • #1039

    That's not the addon. Happens to me outside the addon.

  • #1036

    Pushed out a quick fix update to filter the new image abuse in trade (no reporting).

  • #1035

    Does this allow player to block "anal" trolling too ?

    Install BadBoy_CCleaner plugin.

  • #1033

    Why do I get disonnected right away if I try report a spam?

  • #1031

    Is there any you could add the options to block Yell, Instance, and Party chat as well please?

  • #1030

    If you post spam here it will be removed without being reviewed. The addon description above clearly states how to report missed spam.

    Hey check out my suggestion on forums!

    http://forums.wowace.com/showthread.php?p=329546

    This is an awesome suggestion for the BadBoy addon.

    In Illidan (and other realms) there is a lot of korean/chinese/whatever other symbols being spammed in chat channels. 

    There is currently an addon called "blockchinese"
    http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/blockchinese )

    It just disables those messages from being shown. I think this would be an awesome option in the core BadBoy addon - kill two birds with one addon.

    Edit: That addon doesn't get updated frequently/support isn't as awesome as badboys and you have a source to look at!

    Thanks!

    I just read the addon's code:

    local events = {
    "CHAT_MSG_SAY",
    "CHAT_MSG_YELL",
    "CHAT_MSG_CHANNEL",
    "CHAT_MSG_WHISPER",
    --"CHAT_MSG_EMOTE",
    --"CHAT_MSG_PARTY",
    --"CHAT_MSG_RAID",
    --"CHAT_MSG_INSTANCE_CHAT",
    }

    local function filter(self, event, msg, ...)
    if strfind(msg, "[\228-\233]") then
    return true
    end
    end

    for _, v in ipairs(events) do
    ChatFrame_AddMessageEventFilter(v, filter)
    end

    That is literally all there is. Adding this in with an option to enable/disable (And add other languges since it's apparently easy by just using strfind and the symbols) why not!
