    I just wanted to say thanks.  I have not played WoW in years, but to this date, I still reference this addon as proof that games can be spam free.  The fact you did with limited access to the api what no other developer can apparently do with full access to their own engine and code proves the severe lack of "give a shit" that developers have when it comes to chat spam.

    Again thanks.

    Decided to try finding a guild so I first disabled the BB_G thinking I would see guild spam on channels but I didn't.  Looked in the BB_History and saw that BB was still blocking the guild stuff so I removed all BB adds but I still can't see guild spam on channels.  Other than wiping my Interface folder, what can I do to fix this?

    Do you still see them as available in the addons menu ingame? If you do, somehow you're deleting the wrong thing.

    No, none of the Bad Boy stuff was visible in the Addon menu ingame or at the character choice screen. I did however find mention of them in my WTF/Account folders for each of my toons in the Addons.txt file plus most of my toons had Bad Boy  *.lua.bak files.  I deleted all of that so now I can get private chats for guild invites but still don't see them on other channels.

    This is an alpha only issue, please do NOT report alpha issues on the Curse page. It should be fixed now anyway.

    Everytime I submit a report I am getting DCd...  I get the popup window, I click "Accept"  and BAM.. DCd  Every time.

    What's going on?

    This has been a random and unpredictable issue ever since spam reporting was added. Not an issue with BadBoy and not an issue I can fix. :(

  • #1001

    Does anyone else get DCd when reporting?

    I get DCd when manually reporting and when clicking the link that BadBoy says to click the report spam.

    Can this be fixed?

    Just started happening to me as well.

    I really like your addon!! It clears so much clutter!

    Can I submit a spam/advertise site that spams loads of realid invites with the same message?
    I have made different ticktets to Blizz but not really with a proper responce so I hope your addon can help :)

    The link to reporting spam is in the addon description.

    Alright, I've only had this happen once since the update, but I think you need to add "FRIEND_PENDING" back in addition to "FRIEND_REQUEST" for the CHAT_MSG_BN_INLINE_TOAST_ALERT events you watch because I've logged on without it removing existing entries until I reloaded.

    I think PLAYER_LOGIN fired before the BNet information was available so it didn't catch them.

  • #991

    Question:  How does BadBoy determine if a B.Net friend request is spam or not?  I have been doing mini pet trades cross realm... and this requires that I get B.Net friend invites.  I would not want any of those blocked as spam.
