About BadBoy_Levels: Filter Whispers By Level

This is a plugin for BadBoy: http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/bad-boy

Main features:

  • Hides whispers from players below a specific level.

Only certain people are allowed to whisper you:

  • People on your friends list.
  • People that are part of your guild.
  • People above the level you choose.
  • People you've whispered since you logged on.

Simply, if a "bad" person whispers you, the whisper is blocked (hidden), then you automatically send them a whisper (also hidden) of what level they must be for you to see their whispers.

    To recap from your words:

    "Simply, if a "bad" person whispers you, the whisper is blocked (hidden), then you automatically send them a whisper (also hidden) of what level they must be for you to see their whispers."

    To my experience lately even with a fresh install. Whispers to me are seen, as well as the whispers back.

    *EDIT* Reading a few other replies here seems I am not the only one. I would then consider this addon to be currently broken. And not working as designed.

    Just want to say love the addon and its concept. A flaw which has existed for many versions for me.

    Blocked whispers will still show up in my whispers along with the message of BadBoy sending a message back to the person. Wish it would stop showing me when it whispers a player back. If I set it to a level, I should be able to set it and forget it. Not see what people under that requirement say, or the reply back from the addon. I have even done a clean install of the addon with the same effect. Its starting to get to the point why do I even have this. Main reason is it still blocks spammers under required level, not so much.

    Messages by players while in a battleground even under the required level, still are seen. I used to set it to 90 so ALL whispers in and out of PvE or PvP were not seen, unless I knew them, guild mates etc. I'd love not seeing under level whispers in PvP again. It used to work.

    Great addon! Little issue. When im on mobile app and pst someone from any toon, it thinks im lvl 1 and blocks me. Is there a workaround for this?
  • #246

    Like the mod however gold seller sites are now trying to add players via friend ID in game.  The mod does block  them from being added, but does not report them after their blocked.  Is it possible to do an update where it blocks and reports them?  Also people who are making level one toons for the sake of just trolling, are still able to pm me and it's not blocking them.

    This addon does not work. Either remove addon or fix it please.

  • #244

    It doesn't work?? I set the level to like, 30 and some lvl 7 whispered me.. :(

  • #243

    Can you fix it so that it doesn't whisper them back and tell them what level they have to be? It defeats some of the functionality of the addon if (for example) a lvl 20 player is harassing me, and it tells them "You have to be lvl 55 to message me" because then all they have to do is get on a lvl 55+ player and go back to harassing me.  

    Plus, per blizzards rule about reporting harassment, you have to put a player on ignore and stop speaking to them immediately. If you reply to their whispers or any other form of contact it makes them unable to do much because it's considered "an open conversation/argument"  and since badboy is whispering them back, its handicapping my ability to report a problem player hypothetically since *I* am responding to them. 

    Also, apparently it can whisper people more than once? it whispered a guy and told him he had to be level 51+ to message me. and then messaged him that same thing repeatedly till he thought I was harassing him and then reported ME because of the addon.

    I am trying to use this addon and WIM (http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/wim-3), but when I go to the history viewer to see old whispers I get a lot of:

    BadBoy_Levels: ERROR, tell BadBoy author, new frame found: WIM3_HistoryChatFrame

    So, I guess this is me telling you about the new frame...

    Looking into this, many thanks for reporting it.

    Hi, recently installed your addon, thanks for doing it.  I have IHearYouAll installed, and had some confusion when the whisper alert sounded, but had no whisper showing up  -- took me a bit to figure out that some level 1 must have whispered. (Hey, I had just installed it)

    Just wondering if you'd be open to a mildly more verbose option, as in printing a line like "Badboy_Levels: blocked tell from sublevel player, <playername>"

    Are you aware that this addon is not working in battlegrounds?  I read in your comments that there is no server-biased code, but I set my filter to lvl 99 so that I wont receive tells from anyone but friends, and currently people in battlegrounds from other servers are still able to message me.  I tested it with people from my own realm, outside of a bg, and it works fine.  Inside a battleground however, anyone from another server can message me.

    Huge Bug!

    Squish it please..

    Currently, when visiting other servers, players are able to whisper through the addon D: Regardless of level. Had a friend on <Sargeras> invite me to group and while in Elwynn, had one of the random players whisper me! Absoloutely traumatizing, I know! But in all seriouseness Elwynn Forest (Especially the dueling area) can  have some players you'd rather avoid and not want to make contact with. So it'd be great if this could some how be worked around before one of those "some" appears.

    Unfortunately you've not said anything that would help me reproduce such an issue. There is no server-biased code in _Levels.
