Quick Auctions 3  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: v3.1
by: Shadowed [More]
Quick Auctions is an auction tool to help speed up auctioning large quantities of items, especially canceling. While primarily Quick Auctions is built for large quantities of items, it can work fine for a few auctions as well. A bit of tweaking is required to get optimal settings, but it is very flexible and smart enough that you can use it for more than just mindlessly undercutting auctions by 1 copper every time. Summary window and craft queues are included so you do not have to memorize every item and quantity you need. Shows total materials required to craft as well as allowing you to click from the craft queue to craft so no searching through everything.

Slash command: /qa (/quickauctions)

Donations
A lot of time went into Quick Auctions, donations are appreciated but not necessary. And it's cheaper than buying gold while not being against the ToS!



Groups
Groups are how you manage what items should be managed by Quick Auctions. You can set auction settings either as a default, or per group giving you flexibility over everything without having to duplicate your settings 50 times. There are no limits to how many items can be grouped, see the configuration in /qa config to set them up.

Mail
Includes a timer in the top left of the mailbox indicating how much time before new mail data becomes available, and if you are not using Postal then QA provides its own auto looting for mail. The auto looter will work with the timer on the mailbox cache so it will loot everything, wait until new mail is available and then keep looting.

Auto mailing can now be done per item or per group to any character you want. For example, you can setup your banker to send uncut gems to your jeweler and you can setup your jeweler to send cut gems to your banker. The auto mailer is intelligent in when it sends mail off, and works best when using QA mail looter. If you are trying to loot herbs from your mailbox while auto mailing them to your scribe, it will send mail off whenever it sees your inventory is full. Basically, if you have 4 open slots it will auto mail/loot with only 4 slots, no more clearing out your bags to loot mail anymore!

General options
  • Smart undercutting - Instead of always using the undercut value, it will round it to the nearest gold piece if possible (10g99s -> 10g, 5g -> 5g - undercut price)
  • Smart cancel - Cancels auctions a bit smarter than usual, will cancel an item if you can re list it at a higher price and won't cancel it if items are below the threshold
  • Cancel with bid - Lets you choose if you want to cancel auctions with bids on them

Item options
  • Auto mail - Automatically mail items directly to your banker that are managed by QA
  • Post cap - How many of an item can be up at any one time (If you are undercut this number is reset)
  • Post time - How long to post an auction
  • Undercut - How much to undercut by
  • Bid percent - How much bid should be set to as a percentage of buyout
  • Threshold - Cap on how low an auction can go, if it'll be posted below the threshold price it won't be posted
  • Per auction - How many items to post per an auction
  • Fallback - If no other auctions are up, how much should it list an item for
  • Fallback cap - How high above the fallback an item can go, helps prevent posting a single Frostweave Cloth at 100g if someone sets it at an extraordinary price
  • Auto fallback - If the market price is below your thresold, QA will automatically post it at the fallback price
  • Maximum price gap - How much of a price difference is allowed between the lowest and second lowest items before QA undercuts the second lowest, this will also cancel your auctions if the price gap gets too high
  • Ignore stacks over - Allows you to ignore any auctions with a stack above X when determining price, useful if you want to post against the market price of 1 Abyss Crystal rather than the market price of posting 20 at once
What changed between 2 and 3?
While the configuration in QA2 was an improvement over the original QA, it still wasn't good enough. QA3 has a rewritten configuration and should be much easier for people to understand and use without having to learn to use QA through trial and error.

Scan speed has been increased quite a bit again and has been tightened up to reduce the chance of conflicts. In previous versions, QA would Query -> Wait 0.50 seconds -> Check Data -> Either parse it or wait 0.50 seconds, this made sure that whenever auctions were scanned all data was available including who posted them. The problem is, most of this data becomes available instantly after your initial 1-3 seconds. In 3 it's been changed: Query -> Check Data -> Wait 0.50 Seconds -> Parse or wait 0.50 seconds. Best case this means you will save 0.50 seconds per query (50 seconds/100 items), and worse case you won't see any speed increase.

Mail has been improved to make life easier for people, both a mail scrapper and a smarter mail sender were added. See the mail section above for more information.

Setting scope was improved, most basic options in QA including group settings have been moved to the global profile while server/faction specific settings can still be changed per profile. Letting you setup different profiles of how QA should handle different groups, without having to duplicate all of your group list over and over.
QA3 isn't done yet, and I have more planned still like summary improvements and easy buying of items.
Shadowed:
- Fix positioning of tradeskill frame
- Fixes for 4.3
- Fix tradeskill button positioning
- Should make canceling work again with hardware events
- Make open all work again, add posting back with necessary hardware event work, some initial work on canceling
- Initial conversions to WoWAce, nothing should actually work yet

Blizzard has changed auction canceling so it can't automatically be done, there is still a loophole in it that one hardware event (key press/mouse click/etc) will let you cancel an unlimited amount of auctions. The downside is there is no more automatic canceling where you press a button and go AFK for 20 minutes.

This can be gotten around, but it'll require some sort of interacting as in: QA scans all auctions, finds auctions to undercut and you have to press a mouse button or use a key and it will start smart canceling.

However, I would not be surprised to see Blizzard break this even more in a future patch so one hardware event = one auction canceled. While I am going to provide a fix keep in mind that the smart canceling will likely die off one day.
Oh crap... Most of my glyphs have been undercut right now. Is there anything I can do to cancel them? I assume you are looking into ways of implementing the option to click a button to cancel.

I feel carpal tunnel syndrome kicking in.

I do use alcoholic but when this error occurred i had the AH window open and the glyphs in question were in my bag (there were 4 diff ones on separate scans)

I'm also noticing the "ran out of space to split items" issue while posting glyphs. It also doesn't seem to be checking if items have already been posted when attempting to continue to post, as the 242 glyphs it had queued from the first post turned into 312 by the time i'd finished. (I've set it to post 3 singles of each glyph, and in some cases it's posted up to 6)

auctions not being posted

noticing some odd behavior in the latest release.

Auctions are being cancelled/expired and in the log says they are to be posted, yet never actually do get posted. This only seems to happen when there is a bid only auction up and we are the only other poster. Seen this happen several times now.

Smart cancelling should cancel your auctions for an item if they're the only ones up, to relist them at fallback price.
However at the moment it will fail if your auctions are at threshold price and log "Skipped cancelling [item] flagged to post at fallback when market is below threshold."

Blizzard's fault, several items have item categories that are either inconsistent with the categories of similar items or just plain wrong.

I have one simple feature request:
I'd like to override the automail target for each group. Your automailer is great, but I use three chars for my auction business.

This problem just started happening today. Before today everything was working great. Nothing was changed on my end either. No addons updated or added.

I get the following error message when QA2 hits a Glyph to post:

Message: Interface\AddOns\QuickAuctions\modules\scan.lua:169: bad argument #1 to 'floor' (number expected, got nil)

It skips posting that Glyph and moves on to the rest of them.
