BadBoy Levels: Filter Whispers By Level  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: r114
by: funkydude [More]
This is a plugin for BadBoy

Main features:
  • Hides whispers from players below a specific level.

Only certain people are allowed to whisper you:
  • People on your friends list.
  • People that are part of your guild.
  • People above the level you choose,

Simply, if a "bad" person whispers you, the whisper is blocked (hidden), then you automatically send them a whisper (also hidden) of what level they must be for you to see their whispers.

It is possible to whisper a real ID friend by their in-game name; in that case, the whisper shows the character's name, not the Real ID, as the sender. The whisper also then appears in the regular whisper color, *not* the Real ID whisper color.

I think this might require additional handling, because most people probably would not have friends added by Real ID *and* by characters.

I'm trying out your add-ons now since I can't wait for SpamSentry taking ages to update after each major patch. Thanks for your work :]

Support how exactly? Scanning RealID friends is pretty redundant, so RealID chat is left untouched.

1. They haven't been able to whisper since patch 2.1 trial accounts are seriously locked down.

2. Who told you they're trial accounts? Every single gold seller, that's right, every single one is a hacked account, highlighting the importance of reporting them, having them shut down, and restored to their rightful owner.

The only time trial accounts are used are for the floating advertising.

I should try wim i have been meaning to for some time. But I have always been a fan of badboy level filtering and I used the other bad boy mods previously, they did the job, no spam and no worries.

You know, I was thinking the other day, if blizzard really really wanted to stop the goldsellers dead. They do 2 simple things.

1, trial accounts cannot whisper, same as other games like lotro. I think most mmo trials you cant whisper because of this..yet blizz continues to let whispering continue with the high number of goldspammers?

2, If the goldseller has an account, which many do. I have seen lvl 55 shamans spamming gold ads..then they should introduce a filter which checks the message somehow before it gets posted and if it contains certain keyword heuristics then it simply does not make it to the chat window.

Also they should be fixing the nonsense names like: whjqwe . The client should only allow proper naming conventions.

It makes you wonder just how much blizzard themselves are involved with these companies. They say they ban them, yet years later and millions of reports later the very same people are still there and the same characters they spammed like crazy over the years.

Anyways Blizzard themselves are just as much to blame for the spam than the companies spamming..at least they could and should go proactive like turbine did..but then blizz would loose half its gold farming paying base wouldnt they?

Thanks for this mod of awesomeness

I don't have much faith in them responding Xarl, it might be better you try find out the feature causing the issue yourself, and I'll see if there's any workaround I can do on my end.

Just did a Check on the Bug reports on the Authors Forum and here is what one Posted:

Hi everyone,

when WIM as well as both BadBoy and BadBoy_Levels are loaded, for every session the first whisper from a player not in the user's guild is blocked and causes this error message:

Code:
Code:

Date: 2010-08-22 14:43:09
ID: 1
Error occured in: Global
Count: 1
Message: ..\FrameXML\ChatFrame.lua line 2937:
   attempt to call method 'AddMessage' (a nil value)
Debug:
   [C]: AddMessage()
   ..\FrameXML\ChatFrame.lua:2937: ChatFrame_MessageEventHandler()
   BadBoy_Levels\BadBoy_Levels.lua:92:
      BadBoy_Levels\BadBoy_Levels.lua:39
AddOns:
  Swatter, v5.8.4723 (CreepyKangaroo)
  BadBoy, v6.001
  BadBoyLevels, v2.50
  WIM, v3.3.7
  BlizRuntimeLib_deDE v3.3.5.30300 <eu>
  (ck=83)

I don't witness this behavior with any arbitrary two of those three add-ons loaded. For example with WIM and BadBoy; or with BadBoy and BadBoy_Levels; or with BadBoy_Levels and WIM. However, with all three loaded this is what happens.

I'm not sure whether it's up to you fine folks or the BadBoy developers to take care of this so I'm posting this report over at the BadBoy ticket tracker, too. There you'll find ticket number 18, Incompatibility with WIM and BadBoy.

To reproduce this behavior, install BadBoy v6.001, BadBoy_Levels v2.50 and WIM 3.3.7. Login and have a player not in your character's guild whisper you something. Anything really. His message is blocked and the above error pops up. Actually, the very string he whispered will remain blocked throughout this session. If he whispered "Hi, whazzup?!" and he whispered that same text again, it'll still not show up. Any other text whispered to you by that player - or any other character for that matter - will go through as it should.

All the best,

Contiki
And its the same problem i have
