    Yes, very much so. It ain't just one toon, it's multiple toons and every month has at least one (1) of these invites. I hope that there'll be a fix soon that only Guildies/Friends will be the ONLY ones able to send you calendar events instead of anyone.

  • #981

    Well, there are many mechanics for grouping/raiding and some raiding communities, etc need to invite like that, so no wow developers cannot block non-friend/guildie invites, but I'm begging the developers of badboy to somehow help us report them and clean our calender invites :(

  • #973

    I wanted to take a moment and say, bless you for this add-on :) I just noticed the CCleaner and History plugins and squee'd with joy. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    I'm not sure if this is an error with BadBoy or just with my connection, but quite frequently when I hit the report button when It pops up, It will disconnect me.
    Has this happend to anyone else, or is this a known bug?

    You could say this is "known" yes, but unfortunately it's not an issue with BadBoy for me to fix, but with Blizzard's reporting functionality. It happens most commonly when trying to send too many reports in a short space of time. To combat this issue, I prevented BadBoy from being able to report someone until 5 or more seconds have passed since the previous report. However it sounds like you're using the popup functionality, and the 5 second throttle does not apply to it, so it's up to you to wait 5 seconds between reports.

    It has also been known to happen, although extremely rarely, on the very first spam report. There is nothing I can do to prevent that, as it can happen even when manually reporting someone.

    I've also noticed when I do report (the times it doesn't DC me) it is still bringing up the same message to report again; like it hasn't worked the first time and that player doesn't get temp-ignored. It could just be those RBG spammers changing character all the time though, but I'm not sure why they would need to within a few minutes. I'll have to watch for the names I guess to confirm that though.

    I appreciate the effort you're putting into these AddOns though, don't get me wrong. I think we all owe you a lot! :)


    This actually appears to be some form of new bug since 5.2, the current developmental version of BadBoy handles this by remembering a list of reported people for a day and doesn't ask you to report them again, it will be released soon. Unfortunately it sometimes feels like Blizzard is on a mission to make the spam reporting functionality as unuseable as possible.

    I'm having the same issue even when I don't report people within 5 seconds (up to a few minutes as when I'm in a city I often tab out, then tab back in and report when I talk to someone or go elsewhere).

    v11.600: BadBoy now includes the LibChatAnims library to prevent BadBoy blocking talent changes for some users. Anti-spam update.

  • #969

    Thank you for the awesome addon.

    Is it possible to make it a broker addon? So that it would integrate with bar addons (like ChocolateBar)?

  • #966

    Could you add possibility to censore also TradeForwarder? Basically it's normal trade but outside of towns.

  • #967

    Considering all the issues people are having with it (see comments), nope. I do not believe it would be worth my time.

  • #968

    Works fine for me, but okay - I understand you. Still thanks for helping us fight with spam ;)

  • #963

    Is there a setting you need for it to block Battle.net/realid invites? I've only ever seen it block one long ago but now it never seem's to work when I get a spam invite.

  • #964

    I can't really test this as I don't get them anymore. Is it not reporting them as soon as you receive them, or it's not reporting them when you log on, or both?

  • #965

    Both, Tho I don't get too many only like 1 a week.
