    Silent54: If you open the BadBoy.lua file and remove the "--" on front of the line that says debug on it (don't remove the part on front of debug or it will error) all spam will be printed in chat. Please then PM the phrase so I can fix it. BadBoy False Positive ratio is less that 1% so it would really surprise me.

    Richiewoltk: I will eventually make a non-reporting spam filtering addon for such things. Please don't add that to BadBoy, it abuses the report function which is for gold spam.

    Laren: Don't post spam here, this website has a PM function. I'll add it in the next version though.

    blitzed: It will (eventually) become a separate BadBoy addon.

    possible to add an option for ignore any tells coming from lvl 1 toons ? since that is the only annoyment atm. addon works like a charm saved me alot of crap ads in-game atleast :)

    Wowace won't send the registration mail so I report missed spam here:

    "[07:06:55] [W From] [Ghlessbara]: Hi, are u interested in free power leveling service for lv60+ to lv70or 80 ? fast and safe , please feel free to contact my msn [[email protected]] or our website []"
  • #14

    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 - 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.

    <3 autoreport <3

    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.
