Awesome! I've been looking for something like this... I'm at work right now, but when I get home, I'll be giving this a try!

Thank you!

Anyway to introduce a simple timer, so if I buy many things at the AH at the same time (I use an addon for this) I only get 1 New Mail popup, instead of like 20 all at the same time

My idea would be to have it start a timer when the event is triggered that maybe lasts a very short amount of time (milliseconds or a second maybe) and if any other events are triggered during that time, it's ignored.

Or maybe there is a more clever way? I'm not a programmer, just dabbled a bit in basic.

Thank you for the suggestion.

I think a timer would work, but I will have to give a longer delay, because the server may take time to respond.

Done and done!
I set the timer to wait 0.3 seconds. It should work, but, if the delay needs to be increased, just tell me and I will do it.

Seems to be working nicely! The only other thing I could ask for would be some customization (in-game) to change where in MSBT the notification is displayed (there are 4 areas usually), what the message says, color of message, and maybe ability to increase or decrease the timer.

wtb update for such a useful addon!

Any word on a fix for this?
I have currently disabled the mod. Got tired of the error each time I logged in. Just want to know if this is now abandoned so I can delete it entirely if so.

Thanks,
Twidget
