SpamSentry  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 20091214
by: Anea [More]

SpamSentry by Anea

This addon stops goldspam messages from showing in your chatframes. To detect spam, SpamSentry uses sophistacted heuristics that have been developed over the course of over two years. Caught spammers can easily be reported using an intuitive one-click report system. SpamSentry features an LDB plugin that provides some simple status info, and gives you quick access to the options and the reporting window.

---
20091214: Updated toc for 3.3, updated filters, fixed issue with Whisp
---

Installation:
* Unzip the file into your 'Interface/Addons' folder.

Features:
* Detects multi-message spam
* Customisable notification
* LibDataBroker (LDB) support (FuBar users can download Broker2FuBar to show the SpamSentry icon)
* Compatible with Whisp, Chatter and Wim
* Seperate reportlists are maintained for each realm you play on
* And many more

Use:
* Left click the LDB icon to show a list of blocked messages
* Type /sentry or right-click the icon for options

How to help:
* If a spam-message isn't recognised:
1. Report the spammer by right-clicking the name in the chat window and selecting "Report Spam"
2. Control-click the SpamSentry icon
3. Send me a PM with the code sequence
* If you encounter a false positive:
1. Click the message in SpamSentry main-window
2. Send me a PM containing that message

Performance notes:
* All code has been designed to minimize parsing-time, and maximize performance for raiding.
* The addon currently uses about 150kB memory (Patch 3.0 GetAddOnMemoryUsage(), no libraries).
* Toggle the statistics option in the configuration screen to show session statistics in the tooltip.

Known issues:
* Blizzard made an a-typical implementation for who-queries. You may notice slow response on the /who command while using this mod when the chat is crowded.
* Textballoons from says and yells are still shown. Blizzard currently provides no way to block textballoons.

through trying to find the source of a different probably I found that spamsentry was preventing me from using the MOTD for my guild. What happens is that it will always display nothing. Even if I click on it to 'change' the MOTD there is nothing. Even if I 'enter' something this way it still displays 'nothing'.

I got real tired of the library error popping up on each character load so I uploaded a version for 3.3 that removes the error message. You can download it at

I have just updated the addon for 3.3. It should fix an issue with the latest version of Whisp, and it has updated filters. Should any issues arise, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Hello everyone,

Thank you for you patience; I have just updated SpamSentry. It should now properly work with coloured playernames, and also properly recognise a whole new collection of spam that has been of late.

As always, please keep this thread clean and try to post constructive feedback If spam gets through, please don't hesitate to send me a PM with the feedbackcode (see readme.txt for instructions); The more feedback, the easier it is for me to keep the addon up-to-date.

Anea

Ps to Xylan:
SpamSentry only hooks the functions it needs to in order to achieve things like delaying messages and performing who-queries. If this new version does not solve your issue, please let me know and I'll add some compatibility code.

Patch 3.2 hurts this addon. As seen by BugGrabber, English client.

[2009/08/09 20:09:19-380-x144]: PhanxChat-3.2.0.51-beta\Core.lua:569: Usage: GetPlayerInfoByGUID("playerGUID")
PhanxChat-3.2.0.51-beta\Core.lua:569: in function <Interface\AddOns\PhanxChat\Core.lua:564>
<in C code>: in function `GetColoredName'
Interface\FrameXML\ChatFrame.lua:2490: in function <Interface\FrameXML\ChatFrame.lua:2471>:

(tail call): ?:
Interface\FrameXML\ChatFrame.lua:2288: in function `ChatFrame_OnEvent':
<string>:"*:OnEvent":1: in function <[string "*:OnEvent"]:1>



As quoted elsewhere,..."has not been properly updated to support the changes to the chat system in 3.2 with regard to player name coloring, and is incorrectly hooking chat functions.

Is there any hopes of a feature for SpamSentry to define custom filters? Maybe even custom filters for specific channels (like block out certain messages from appearing in one channel, but not another)?

Would really love to have one.

Greetings,

recently this gold spam message has started showing up in the LocalDefense channel:
Heute 5000 Gold ab 18 EUR, 10000 Gold ab 39 EUR ,Top Service DE Team+24/7 Service+übergabe . Powerleveling 1-60=89 EUR 70-80=77 EUR ( www.wow-europe.cn )
Although I've set SpamSentry to check LocalDefense, this message passes through. Could you adapt the filter so that the message doesn't show up anymore?

Filtering level 1

I love Spamsentry, it works well, except that the setting that says filter by level doesn't seem to work.

I still get he gold seller whisper from the level 1 dwarf warrior (or whatever) that usually says "Hi, are you there?"

Of course if you reply, you get "We have 3000 gold on this server would you like to buy some" or similar.

I can't see any valid reason why a level 1 character would whisper me from half a world away, so I'd like to know, have I got it set wrong or something?

BAzz

Just a quick question;
I was using an older version of SpamSentry. However, whilever it was enabled, Friends, Guild, and such lists wouldn't dynamically update when sorting was changed. I had to close and reopen, or scroll the box to get it to update. Is this issue fixed in the current version?

I'm not sure if this is related, but when an item or player link is at the bottom of the chat panel (i.e. on the bottom visible line), i'm unable to click it, and must wait for a new line of text to appear before i can click it. It seems somewhat like the above issue.

These are the only issues holding me back from using it (whereas i absolutely love the mod itself).

Many thanks for putting in the time and effort. It's one of those things that does what it does, and it's really appreciated by me, and many other's.

Best regards,
Chronalis, Ghostlands EU.
