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.

    Just a head's up to anyone using Elvui.

    There seems to be a bug with the default chat history. When it whispers someone, it resends the wisper whenever you do a /reload or log in.

    You shouldn't be able to see the whisper. Are you modifying the code to test this?

    BadBoy_Levels doesn't filter cross realm players because they cannot be added to the friends list to scan for their level. Maybe next expansion Blizz will change this and I can add support for it.

    Isn't it possible to fetch data from /who ?

    Its not blocking even people on my same realm thats under the level cap. Just thought I would post that, so you knew it was not just a xrealm thing. Additonal to this I see it post the whisper to them that their whisper was blocked. And I also see their whisper. So if it whispers them I would care not to see it, and as far as seeingtheir whispers when on the same realm. Used to not see these and now i do. I have even done a fresh install to hope that it fixed and nothing.

    Is this using the new version?

    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. 

  • #242

    for some reason levels doesend work i have it on lvl 90 but people stil could whisper me befor it was all fine?

  • #239

    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...
