    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 I'll probably just keep using outdated addon.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. :)

    The latest BadBoy release removes the 8 second block on reporting spam. This was implemented to prevent a disconnection bug which I believe Blizzard may have finally fixed.

    To give this proper testing, I've temporarily disabled the option to hide the spam report links to try and get people to report spam. Please let me know if you see any disconnection issues.

    Block Thunderfury please

    Hola BadBoy creator.
    Got the problem of not being able to mute [Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker] spams because it is too long. Could you increase your size of blocked phrases or in some other way make it possible to block Thunderfury spams?

  • #1087

    Just use "thunderfury" or "blessed blade of the" or any combination of that item's name that you think is unique enough to not block legitimate chat. You don't have to have the entire phrase you're blocking in order to block the line of chat.

    Indeed there is no reason to use the entire text block. However, I've increased the max letters you can type into the box in the latest badboy_ccleaner release.

    What's your preferred method for reporting things I notice occasionally getting through ?

    Most often I still see some double spams of identical messages.

    Occasionally a gold spammer will find a way through..

    Screenshots of messages enough ?
