    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!

    Any way to get it to work with TradeForwarder. I worked out how to get it to read the custom channel (by commenting the line that restricts it to trade/general), I get the "Spam Blocked" message, but it still shows in the custom channel. I don't care about the reporting not working, just seems to be alot of Japanese and Chinese characters from players lately. On Frostmourne anyway. Thanks for the addon btw.

    Lately, when I report spam by clicking on a pink link in chat, about 1 out of 3 times I get DC'd right away. I'm not sure if this is an addon thing, have anyone else experienced that? I don't know how to troubleshoot this, but I would if it's possible.

  • #1032

    Still often D/C's on clicking report link as of 11/10/14.

  • #1028

    I had DC just now immediately after reporting using this addon.

  • #1024

    Most of the times the links are not clickable btw.  I also don't know if it's related to the addon or just the specifics of spam messages on my server.

    Very good, but does not work on whispers :/

    If you're talking about actual spam that was whispered to you report it on the forum link in the description or PM me it.

  • #1018

    Should be fixed now.

  • #1015

    I see raid icons in trade after the latest update even though I have disabled them in the options. It happened after this update and the icons were hidden yesterday. Known issue?

  • #1016

    Same here

    Looking into it. It's a bigger issue than it seems.
