TB Silent Ignore
Version: r57-release
by: Valana [More]
Features

Silent Ignore
Have you ever wished you could put someone on ignore, without him or her knowing it? We all may have legitimate reasons for doing so, and this is what TB Silent Ignore does! This add-on replaces your standard ignore list, and will essentially work in the same fashion, except players you are ignoring will never know you are not receiving their messages. This can be especially useful to grief a player who is harassing you. He or she will keep messaging you and wasting time.

Comments

TB Silent Ignore gives you the ability to attach comments to players you are silently-ignoring, so you never again forget why you added someone to your ignore list.

Infinite Ignore List
Do you get frustrated with gold sellers or casino spammers? Are you unable to add more of them to your ignore list because it is already full? Unlike the built-in, Blizzard ignore list, TB Silent Ignore is not limited to just 50 names. You can add as many people as you need to your TB Silent Ignore list.

Account-Wide
With TB Silent Ignore, you no longer need to add a player to your ignore list on every single alt you have. Your new ignore list is now shared across your entire account so you don't need to keep your lists synchronized yourself.

Offline Players
The default ignore list requires players to be online in order for you to add them to your ignore list. How much sense does that make? With TB Silent Ignore you no longer have to wait for someone to come online to add him or her to your ignore list. In fact, you can even ignore NPC's if you want!

Outbound Blocker
Blizzard allows you to message people you are ignoring, which sometimes leads to awkward situations where you message someone and never receive his or her response, and start wondering why. Oh, it's because he or she is on your ignore list! To address this, TB Silent Ignore blocks outgoing messages to players you are ignoring. This functionality reaches a bit farther, blocking auction bids, outgoing mail, and group, calendar, guild, and arena team invitations).

Self-Purging
Since the TB Silent Ignore list is not maintained by Blizzard, players who no longer exist cannot be automatically cleaned up. Instead, TB Silent Ignore will automatically purge players who have not been seen in a given amount of time. This option is configurable via the Blizzard Interface menu (default: 6 months).

Configuration

Just type /ignore, or open your Blizzard Interface menu, to configure your Silent Ignore list, and convert your standard ignore list to use TB Silent Ignore. You can add or remove people from your TB Silent Ignore list with
Code:
/ignore <name1>-<realm1> (comment1)
The realm should only be specified for players on a different realm. You may also right-click their names in chat, and click Ignore. The add-on does not check the names you enter, so nothing is stopping you from silently-ignoring offline players or even NPC's.

Third-Party Support
Since the TB Silent Ignore list is not managed by Blizzard, you will be receiving add-on messages from players you are ignoring. This may actually be desirable behavior (eg. for better damage meter synchronization support). Individual add-on authors who wish to support TB Silent Ignore simply need to add the following line to their CHAT_MSG_ADDON handlers:
Code:
if TbCore and TbCore:IsIgnored(sender) then return end
Notice
TB Silent Ignore depends on TB Core and TB Chat Enhancements. The latest releases of TB Core and TB Chat Enhancements are included with TB Silent Ignore so you do not need to download them separately.

Localizations
Localization for TB Silent Ignore is open. Please contribute your translations using the CurseForge contribution page.

Bugs and Requests
Please submit them using the CurseForge Tracker.

About the Author
I am a professional software engineer who plays World of WarCraft way too much and develops add-ons as a hobby (crazy, I know!). I have played the same character since the release of World of WarCraft, a hunter called Valana, in the Team BATTLE guild on the Mug'thol realm. I raid some, but my primary focus in this game is PvP.

Cross real names

It doesn't work with whitespaces in realm names. For example when I right-click ignore the name "Idiot-Realm name" in chat, it puts "Idiot-Realm" and "Name" on the ignore list. BGs is the only reason I want to try out this addon .

Hi Laren,

Thank you for your feedback. I have entered a ticket for this issue, which you can track here:
http://wow.curseforge.com/projects/t...ame-at-a-time/

I'll try to get this in ASAP. It shouldn't be overly difficult to do.

Notes on why you ignored them

Does this handle notes? I have been using IgnoreMore and like it. Its not being updated. One of the features is it lets me put a note on the person.

This is great. I forget why I ignored them otherwise.


Thus

Doofus - Casino Spamer

Has meaning

Hi Mita, and thanks for the note.

This is the most requested feature for TB Silent Ignore thus far, so I am trying hard to get it in. It should be completed within a few more days.

I have a ticket open on CurseForge if you would like to keep an eye on it: http://wow.curseforge.com/projects/t...nored-players/

The format used will be:
Name - Realm (comment)

I make no claims to actually be able to understand how addons are made, or how they even work. As simple as this one may be, though.. I simply can't get it to do anything.

I didn't realize at first(most likely because I am a touch dense), that I would need Ace3 in my addons folder. Once I finally figured out where to get that from, I put it in there. Now I am getting an error that says Ace3 cannot find "LibStub".

And as for TB Silent Ignore itself? It simply doesn't appear in the AddOns tab of my interface window. Despite being enabled on the character select area.

So.. to sum it up.. any advice?
-----

Edit 2: Wow. Okay. Turns out the error was with my download, and I just somehow got an empty folder with the Ace3 embeds. A fresh download fixed that. However - Now I see an error stating
Code:
TB_Core.lua.674: attempt to index upvalue 'L' (a nil value)
And this pops up every few seconds.

I'm bound and determined not to let some code beat me, even if I know nothing about said code. This is a great looking addon that I'd love to get runing.

Hi Scharr,

I'm wondering if maybe there is a problem with your TB Core download. Could you try deleting TB Core and TB Chat Enhancements from your addons folder and redownloading TB Silent Ignore? (TB Core and TB Chat are included in the download)

Also, are you running this on an English client?

Yes, despite the apparently very Germanic name (I swear I had no clue when I adopted it, year and years ago), I am running this on the English Client.

I will go ahead and clear out TB Core and TB Chat, download again, and see what it brings about. Thanks!

My reasoning is it seems somehow the localization class isn't getting initialized, but that would only happen if you were running in an unrecognized locale. I think I have a localization file for every supported game locale so that error shouldn't even happen. I hope it works for you after a fresh redownload.

Hi eThuz,

Unfortunately it is not, and there are no plans to do so. A player's guild information is not immediately available to the game client. Implementing such a feature would require delaying every single message that comes through while the sender's guild is looked up.

Alright. Probably too much of a hassle, but what about adding a guild to the ignore list via a /who query?

Would only get whoevers online, but stragglers can be dealt with

That sounds like something I could do. Would you mind entering a feature request on CurseForge? http://wow.curseforge.com/projects/tb_silentignore/ Thanks!

Greetings,

I've just recently discovered TB Silent Ignore and love the concept. Apparently it gets the job done and seems to work just fine. Since I'm a native German speaker I've contributed a little and added the German translation to the CurseForge localization page.

Thanks for the add-on!
