Since the disconnect issue seems to be resolved, we now throttle the spam report link to only show once every 60 seconds. Clicking the link will report all the spam seen so far.

anti-spam update, disable the 8 second spam report throttle. I *think* Blizz has finally fixed disconnects when reporting, let's test that theory.

    Since the disconnect issue seems to be resolved, the latest release will now throttle the spam report link to only show once every 60 seconds. Clicking the link will report all the spam seen so far.

    You seem to have forgotten to un-comment line 1025, the indentation would be wrong so maybe you missed it.

  • #1103

    Good job, the reporting really seems to be working now!
    Thanks!

    A minor feature suggestion: could you store the name of those reported for some time (day or so), and not show the "Report" link for them again? I highly doubt reporting someone over and over again has any effect, but could make us see less of these links. (Relogging, UI reload, etc pops the same messages again)

  • #1102

    Is it possible to hide links completely?

  • #1096

    The last update fucked it up a bit. Please fix the "report spam" message.

  • #1099

    Probably just have to change "false" to "true" somewhere in the code.

  • #1094

    I'm being spammed to report when I have disabled the message.

    Please fix this.

    Just dowload the older version of the addon untill you can disable the messages once again.

    As to the author i personally would not disable the message if i could choice a different chatbox for it to appear in.

    I have two separate ones one for Guild, Party, Officer and Raid chats and the other for Trade chat etc and atm its currently flodding my main chat.

    With a bunch of click here to repot messages since it seems like the server im on it mostly filled with gold spammers which is not ideal

    Right! I'll probably just keep using outdated addon.

  • #1091

    I keep seeing those messages asking me to report spam.

    I like your addon and sure I'm against gold famers/hackers/spammers but those addon messages are also spam. A weirdly colored spam.

    My point is: Spam is spam.

    updt: I've been playing with BadBoy on for an hour or so and I'm already annoyed to the point when I just disable the addon and chat and make WoW a single player game. This is unbearable.

    <snip>

    I'm not kidding.

    Also the colors you used! Not grey or yellow but acid green and purple.

    <snip>

    Hope you won't get offened. This is just my feedback on addon functionality.

    ...

    You're right. But like I previously said, this is to test if disconnecting is fixed. If it is actually fixed, I have a plan to cut that "spam" down by having 1 chat link report ALL blocked messages. That means, instead of seeing 10 report links in 10 seconds, you will see 1 every 30 seconds (depending how much spam there is) and clicking it will report all the spam you've seen. That will only be possible if the disconnect bug is fixed.

    Regarding the color of the report links, I'm open to suggestions. It needs to be a color not already used by the game to signify other types of links.

    I don't know what realm you're playing at but I'm getting like 5 spam reports every 10 sec.

    I play at Stormscale EU

    Well that was more of a feedback for author, that dc issue seems solved. As for the server, I play on Kazzak EU. :)

    I've been hitting report on ~90% of them without getting disconnected, although I don't get a bunch of them... like 4-5 reports per minute only (not sure if that's a lot or not).

  • #1090

    My bad I didn't read your post about disabling. Should've read the comments first. :)
