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

I've been considering that, but I don't like the idea of having to store a large database of items to compare when none of it are up. I'll think about it more, but even if I do add it, it'll have to learn the items meaning it won't know to show an item as not listed until it's seen it at least on ce.

try /qa undercut 1c glyphs

you forgot the c and may have taken it as a default g



Is there a way to add all items into summary even the stuff not listed in the AH like a DB of everything? That way we know if there were no posts on an item and to put some up ASAP, which is hard when you're talking about 370 glyphs looking for what's not posted.

Thanks once again for your hard work Shadowed

Mmmmmm

It really shouldn't disable the scan button when canceling anyway, as that isn't a lock out type of operation, so I'll just make it not disable the button on a cancel.

I did a /qa cancelall and while it was in the middle of canceling everything I notice someone bought two of my auctions (Before they were canceled but after the initial scan). During the actual canceling I got blizzard red text 'item not found' twice in the middle of the screen as the addon tried to cancel those two auctions but couldn't obviously.

Anyway the addon continued to cancel the rest of the auctions but at the end the counter stopped two short (As it was not able to cancel those two auctions). Anyway it locked out the addon so I had to log out and in to get it to reset the numbers and make those buttons available again.

Mmm, I'd rather not add more spam with it saying if you're below the post cap, I could however change the summary so that it lists the current you have posted/post cap so you can see if you need to make more via that.

The /qa time help is out of date, that's fixed next push.

It warns you that an item is below threshold when posting, it'll say something like "Not posting X at Y because the threshold is set to A and the lowest is B."

I'm not sure what you mean by alerting when theres not enough to post, are you saying if you're posting Glyphs in stacks of 2, and you only have 1 of that Glyph you want to know? Or you want to know if you only have 2 of that Glyph in your inventory, but post cap is 20. [/b]
Thanks for the quick response.
1. Will reinstall tomorrow and give you a line number.
2. I'll turn off smartcut , and report back if it doesn't fix it.
3. The help needs updating I think it says something like, "only per session" for the time thing.
4. It may well be doing what I need already, I'm just missing it. Basically I would like to be warned when I need to make more of a particular glyph. So I post 3 glyphs always, if a glyph count is below this number it'll post all of them but I'd like to be notified its done that.

Naniad: I'll take a look into it in a bit, with any luck I'll push something tonight to fix it.

First off really really really nice addon, been looking for something like this for a very long time

Some bugs (or at least I'm using it wrong), if you use the latest version and try save any variables you get NIL errors as it tries to save to the LUA. I got around this by downloading a previous version and using this, exiting and installing latest versions.

Secondly I can't get it to undercut by 1c... always 1g for some reason. What I want it to is list all glyphs I have, listed in quantities of 1, maximum of 3 at a time, min of 10g and a max of 26g. This is what I put into the GUI;

Code:
/qa time 24
/qa undercut 1 glyphs
/qa threshold 100000 glyphs
/qa fallback 259999 glyphs
/qa cap 3 glyphs
/qa toggle glyphs
I then run using the post button on the interface, it correctly does everything apart from the undercut, which for some reason it always lists as 1g ? Incidentally I've hardcoded it to work in my copy by changing line 426 to this;

Code:
   bid = lowestBuyout - 1

Also is the session time saved or do I need to type in /qa time 24 every time I login ?

Another bug I just found, if you run /qa cancel all without being in the AH it throws an error, would be better if threw a caught error with something like "Don't be stupid"

Suggestion for improvement, would be really really useful if it could tell me either when theres not enough of an item to post enough or you set some sort of low item threshold, ie Glyphs lower than 2 warn me about etc.
[/code]

Make sure that it's actually ignoring the white list and not that someone else that isn't on it undercut or matched you Naniad, if someone on your white list posts an item for 50g and someone else that isn't on it posts it for 50g it's considered undercut and so it'll be canceled.
I'm pretty sure it wasn't taking the white list into account or something. My roommate and I both do inscriptions so we put each other on our white lists. With the newer versions QA canceled every auction where we both had the same lowest price for a glyph. Now when I post it still matches his price so that part is working.

I would verify the behavior but servers are down but when they are back up I'll test it again to be sure.

Edit: Confirmed above behavior.

I haven't checked if this has been fixed in the newest version but in the previous one it would cancel auctions as if it was ignoring the white list.

I'll give 1120 a good run through tonight.

So far so good, did post once at fallback when there were other auctions but that was after a 5 sec. screen freeze due to conflict with AucAdv.

What does the red and green signify in summary for my auctions?

Now trying 1119, I'll have some feedback shortly. I'll still have Auctioneer running for the first few test.

one bug sorta, when there are auctions with no buyouts and the bid is below the threshold it will not post even though the next item with a buyout is well above the threshold. Since I want to undercut the buyout it should still post.

I'll look at super not working, but I don't plan on adding reporting for what you posted still.

[edit] Just tried, super auctioning is working fine for me.
