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

Seems to not ignore bid only auctions any more if they are the only thing up.

I am having this issue as well. Seems to me to fail when the stack to split is smaller than the post cap. I'm not sure the behavior is totally consistent, but I had to pass off a couple "short" stacks to another toon to get my post to complete. In other cases, I'm seeing lua errors.

Edit: It appears to be splitting stacks that aren't related to the present auctions whatsoever, and hanging up after those stacks are split. By moving around other auctions, re-stacking the items, etc. I can get the posting to work. Additionally, it's reporting more to-be-posted auctions than are really needed - possibly related to the split issues.

Posting at fallback price even if auctions exsist.

I'm having a heck of a time trying to get a good majority of my glyphs to post at the right price.

It seems that they keep wanting to post at my fallback price, even if other people have auctions posted with buyouts. Is there some setting I'm missing or is this a bug?

Is this a bug that's foreseeable as being corrected in the future? There's absolutely no easier way for me to post auctions than with QuickAuctions, but on the flip side of the coin, there's nothing easier to BUY things with than Auctionator. Not being able to run the two side by side is painful.

I've been running both QA and Auctionator side by side for awhile now without issue. Is there a new part of QA that is causing them to suddenly clash?

after the latest patch QA2 keeps posting items ignoring post cap 1 reporting that there is no other auctions up stacking them up to 5 posted and even more

also noticed that a lot of items in item groups r shown as item:20000 as an example

deleting quickauctions.lua and creating new configurations does not help

Please add:

Ignore Stack Size > X

How it works:

Pick the size of a stack for this item, and when deciding to undercut an existing auction, if the stack size of that auction is greater than X, it ignores that auction when calculating the price.

Example:

Bob sells apples for 10g each.
Tom lists 20 apples for 1 gold each, in a stack of 20.
I want to sell 1 apple for 9g99s.

I set "ignore stacks >" to 1, and it will ignore anything in a stack of 2 or more when deciding what to undercut.

Hello, first of all, thanks for great addon. One thing that could imho make it even better is what I call "Intelligent Scan", which would use list of items, that have recently been scanned and not posted (for any reason).

Why would that be useful?
Lets say i have 60 bagslots, 350 items in auction. I'll cancel all of them, will get 60 from mail into my bags, and 290 will stay in mail. Now I'll run to AH, post items with QuickAuctions, and 30 will be successfully posted, but 30 will stay in my inventory. Now when I want to add other 290 items, those 30 that are in my bags will not be posted, but will still be scanned again. This redundant scanning now happens a lot during one big posting session. "Intelligent Scan" would populate a list with scanned & unposted items, and will not scan them again. List could be wiped by user command, or by logging off.

Now, I understand rescanning the same item is useful and sometimes it can actually find changed items in AH. Thats why I suggest, that filling and wiping this list would be users choice - default searches would not use this list and everything would work as it works now. But there could be checkbox somewhere near the top buttons, like "Don't rescan unposted items", or option in config, that would toggle it.

To me it looks like minor change in code with big impact on efficiency of the addon. Please, consider this and let me know, if you are up for it. Once again I want to thank you for this great addon and wish you Happy Christmas (or Hanukkah or whatever you fancy more )

I can't find this option...

It's 2 AM and I am annoyed, but I did find the stupid compatibility issue and it's pretty much what I thought.

This is NOT Quick Auctions fault, it's Auctionator's for functioning incorrectly, it's an issue that has likely existed for a long time with QA/Auctionator but the faster posting made the issue more obvious.

I'm going to go yell at the author to fix it, but it's ultimately for the Auctionator developer to fix compatibility, not me.

Thanks for looking into this Shadowed, I hope you and he can hammer this out quickly cause QA without Auctionator is like macaroni without the cheese.
