    Is there anyway that this program could send mesages to the starter areas of each realm?  A lot of these guild recruit addons are starting to fail.  I liked the NazGuildRecruiter because it serached for areas for players that are not in guilds.  I think what hurt that addon is that players misinterpeted it for spam.  That is not my intention, I am simply trying to rebuild a guild.  In a lot of realms, such as Misha, there are factions that have a low percentage of players that we are looking for.  For example...the Misha realm is slowly becoming dominated by the alliance and that hurts recruiting for the horde.  Some players do not have the money to transfer realms and want to fight back and regain strength for their factions.  What will make this addon a better addon is the ability to look for players that are not in guilds.  The ability to show who that player is, what race they are and what type of player the are (such as paladin or druid).  This will allow the player that is recruiting to chat with the guildless player and try to recruit them within the rules.  This will give the recruiting guilds a stronger and better way to recruit for what they want.

    If you want to use General channel, then you must be in that particular starting area to use it. You can use an alt for that if you wish.

    As for the second part, this add-on isn’t trying to be a Swiss army knife and implement everything that other add-ons can do. At the time of add-on writing, there were at least two other add-ons that can invite players automatically. Not sure if they survived though.

    If you intend to automatically invite players to your guild according to some criteria, you could use other add-ons in guild category to use that. Take a look at the following add-on:

    Maybe it will do a job for you. But, thanks for asking.

    Will this be getting updated for 5.2?

  • #79

    It's already updated. If you had any issues with latest version, please report.

  • #74

    When outside of a city, it constantly spews the following error message:

    GuildRecr: DEBUG: LDB time difference is negative!

  • #75

    This happens to me, it seems to occure when it should have spammed the recruitment message and did not. If you wait the timer delay again in a city it spams the recruitment message and stops the debug error.

  • #77

    This problem caused by latest Ace3 lib, implemented in some addons. Anyway, I updated LDB code to resolve this issue and included latest Ace3 library which hopefully not affected by timer issues.

    Also fixed problem with general chat not working after a zone change.

  • #76

    Thank you for report! I'll look in to this problem.

  • #72

    all i get is Skipping Trade: 11 LFG 0 then Skipping Trade: 37 LFG 0 why?

  • #73

    Set your Spam protection to 0 and it will not skip.

    The addon will give you the skipping message depending on your spam protection settings.
    For example:

    Spam Protection is set to 50.

    The addon will wait until 50 lines of text have passed in a specific channel before broadcasting your announcement.

    the minimum waiting time for reposting the message is abit to long if you are in a big realm, cuz others are spamming as hell. So please decrease the repost time to 1min30sec.

    I does not announce to general when I am out of cities.  My guess would be because the general chat is no longer called just "general"  it is called General - "wherever you are".

  • #67

    A new 2.5 version just been released!

    It's more like a feature request release. As requested I added ability to use General chat channel and it's now possible to disable spam protection feature. Also I have tweaked some LDB code to display exactly how much time left before next announce.

    Thank you for your patience and support!
