    "[aA][nN][aA][lL].*\124.*",

    Add this to the end of your phrases in badboy.lua. It will report all the anal [item link] spam.
  • #13
    Been using this for a bit now. Recently I've had it block players that aren't trying to spam me because I know them by casual contact. Is there a way to see what was said or take them off the spam list?
  • #12
    1) Not really, apart from the yellow text reporting people. You can also do /script print(IsAddOnLoaded("BadBoy"))

    1 signifies enabled.

    2) Custom(trade, gen, etc), say, yell, whisper, emote

    3) Some people say that WIM broke BadBoy, others say it works fine. No idea. :) It certainly doesn't need or use wholib though.

    Please don't post spam here, use the forum topic at wowace.

    Hi - nice mod.

    I am using 2.1.1.5 - questions :

    1) is there any way to tell if the mod is running - ( besides waiting for spam to show up ). ( yes its checked as an addon at the Character screen :)

    2) What channels are monitored?

    3) Does it conflict with W.I.M.

    This message made it through in a whisper :

    "dear (name), super scecials from dgamesky : $58 for 5000g now! Large amount gold on very server use CQM code 900012 and pass 12345 to enjoy 10% discount! [5].

    Since wow now seems to only list 3 mods using up the most space i cant tell if its loaded correctly each time. Guess i could just check badboys as the only mod and see if it shows up under the blizz "menu button". Would be cool just to have a quick check.. or even a quick message when loging in that its loaded.

    thanks for a cool mod.. spammenot and spamsentry are using old wholibs and dont play nice with W.I.M.

    thanks much.

    Thanks for the update!

    This addon works quite nicely!
  • #1

    Hmm i like your auto-report feature :)
    Im giving badboy a whirl right now, keep up the good work

  • #2

    mods from Funky = teh win

  • #3

    <3 autoreport <3

    ftw!

  • #4

    Since the 1.6 update spam is no longer blocked for me neither do I see anyone getting reported.

  • #5

    Laren, the 1.6 update from curse works, I guess you got the latest from wowace which doesn't. If you wait until the next wowace zipup it should be fixed. To repeat, the zip on curse works fine.

  • #6

    I realize BadBoy is currently missing some of the latest spam the past few days, I've got it covered in the next (2.0) version currently in testing, should be out in a few days, just delaying it a bit. The new version includes the most solid database to date (possibly also the smallest?) and with an option to save manual reporting.
