LFDAutoJoin
Version: 1.1
by: Zenh [More]
LFDAutoJoin automatically joins ready LFDs. It's very lightweight and has little customization.

LFDAutoJoin has a polite AFK behavior: if you are AFK you will still auto-join the instance, but after zoning you will print a friendly BRT (be-right-there) message to /party (or /say if the party wasn't initialized yet--e.g. latency). These AFK messages are configurable in the LUA file.

LFDAutoJoin will also play a custom sound when a LFD is ready, one more noticeable (possibly annoying) than the default. This sound is optional/configurable. You can also choose to only play the sound when AFK (default).

The sound and its credits:
http://www.freesound.org/samplesViewSingle.php?id=18075

Toggle enable/disable of LFDAutoJoin (saved per account):
/lfdauto

Please use LFDAutoJoin with respect to others. Heroics are repetitive, people are impatient; don't let them wait for more than a minute.

----------------
CONFIGURATION
----------------

Refer to LFDAutoJoin.lua to make changes.

Defaults:

Code:
local showAfkMessage = true
local playSound = 2 -- VALUES: false, 1 = Yes, 2 = Only When AFK

local afkMessages = {
    "I'll be ready soon, just need a sec.",
    "Be right there guys, need a sec.",
    "Hey all, I'll be ready in just a bit.",
    "Hi, need a sec to be ready.",
    "Hey, I just need a sec to begin.",
    "Hello, I'll be ready in a sec."
}

local soundFile = 'Interface\\AddOns\\LFDAutoJoin\\ready.mp3'
--------------------------------------------
v1.1 = Added mod enable/disable through /lfdauto. Added an option to play the ready sound only when AFK. Lastly toned way down the volume of ready.mp3.

It would take someone that knows Lua to locate the code to remove, even for those people, it'll be easier for them to write the code they need themselves.
I'm thinking another developer would notice the simple exclusion, copy some code, release their own add-on. I'm taking the GearScore philosophy; use the add-on responsibly.

How many people do you think would enable the restriction?
The idea would be impractical in the first place. When people go AFK they usually start their AFK at the zero mark--when the game starts counting idleness, not the 5 minute mark when the AFK status appears. In other words, it's no guarantee someone without an AFK flag isn't really AFK and just hasn't hit the 5 minute flag yet.

It's safe to always assume the general public will use any exploit they can find without any regard to anyone else.
I don't believe it's the general public, but a minority--sure. For those people, there is vote kick.

I usually just do dailies, quest, or chat with guildmates... or perform some addon testing.
It's more for multi-taskers or those who prefer not to be glued to the monitor at all times. Between queues doing some laundry, preparing dinner, brushing teeth, feeding the pets, talking with buddies, etc. etc.

My suggestion: This addon should not Join Groups while AFK... just my Opinion....
I considered this, but it's too easy to modify the few lines of code in this add-on to remove that restriction.

I could add it as an option, though.

This add-on should be used respectfully.

People like to go AFK during this instead of waiting at their computer twiddling their thumbs.

This add-on should be used respectfully. When you are AFK and hear the loud sound this add-on makes when a LFD pops, you should realize there's about 30 seconds to get back to the computer before people in-game start getting impatient.

DPS have to sit for 15 minute or more queues. People like to go AFK during this instead of waiting at their computer twiddling their thumbs.

When they get kicked out of the Group because they are afk, its their own fault, no one likes to wait at one player for a quick Instance run. I mean, why search for an Group when you know you have to go AFK? Or when it is something you don't know before, that makes you go AFK, you Just don't klick on join...

My suggestion: This addon should not Join Groups while AFK... just my Opinion....
