CensusPlus  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 7.0.3 >=WoWL7.2.0
by: coopers98, Bringer

Special note: 15-Aug-2014, 17-july-2016 In preparation for World of Warcraft v7.0 and LEGION expansion a major effort has been made to fix localization issues. If you are comfortable translating from English to other Blizzard supported languages please go to http://wow.curseforge.com/addons/census-plus/localization/ and add translations and/or review other translations. Thank you for your help in this endeavor.

Please note use \n to split lines for your translation instead of using the ENTER key. (LUA coding requirement)

You can always find the latest information on the Census mod at:



CensusPlus came about due to requested changes and desired options not present in the original Census UI Mod by Ian Pieragostini.

I spoke with Ian (the original creator of the Census UI mod) and he has lost interest in World of Warcraft modding and encouraged me to modify the Census Mod to my liking. Thus I have done so.

The original Census UI Mod basically took snapshots of your current realm and faction. You could keep this data and combine it with other snapshots to provide greater statistical analysis.

CensusPlus offers many features above and beyond what the original Census UI mod provided. Here follows a list of added features:

Abilty to minimize the main census window which provides you the abilty to actually play while a census is being taken
Ability to pause and unpause the current census
Ability to stop the current census in progress
GameTime timestamp added when characters are viewed which will be used by http://www.warcraftrealms.com if your data is uploaded

Census information is saved in the Savedvariables folder as CensusPlus.lua this is the file that is uploaded to WarcraftRealms

Installation: Unzip the files into your %World of Warcraft/Interface/AddOns directory. It should create a CensusPlus directory with the installed files.

Usage: see changes tab for updated usage... chat window command line options demoted to immediate and temporary. Use the Options frame for all your needs.

/CensusPlus or /Census+ or /Census and following command as shown below:

/CensusPlus verbose _ Toggles verbose mode off/on
/CensusPlus options _ Brings up the Option window
/CensusPlus take _ Start a Census snapshot
/CensusPlus stop _ Stop a Census snapshot
/CensusPlus prune X _ Prune the database by removing characters not seen in X days on current realm - X defaults to 30 days
/CensusPlus serverprune X _ Prune the database by removing all data from servers other than the one you are currently on - X defaults to 0 days.
/CensusPlus who name _ Will display info that matches names or guilds.
/CensusPlus who unguilded 70 _ Will list unguilded characters of that level.
/CensusPlus timer X _ Will set the autocensus timer (in minutes).
/CensusPlus me _ Does Census update of player only.. this is done automatically when /CensusPlus take finishes.

You can also invoke the CensusPlus window by clicking on the CensusPlus Button that default to the mini-map but can be moved anywhere. Clicking the right (alternate) button on the mouse will show a drop down option window.

By selecting the Take button from the main census panel, you will initiate a Census snapshot. Depending on the population of your realm and faction, this could take several minutes.

Clicking the Purge button will purge all your collected data from your local Census database.

Clicking the Stop button will stop the current census if one is in progress.

Clicking the Pause button will pause the current census if one is in progress.

Once you have census data locally you can click on Race, Class, or Level icons or bars to bring up more detail on your current realms population.

If you so choose, you can upload your collected census information to http://www.warcraftrealms.com Doing so will greatly help in the tracking of your realm and faction's population numbers and statistics. You can create your own login at http://www.warcraftrealms.com to keep track of your upload activity, or upload anonymously.

If you have any requests, comments, or suggestions, please post in the forums at http://www.warcraftrealms.com

- Localization updates for Russian & German.
- at this time all version 7.0.x Censusplus uploads will be accepted at www.WarcraftRealms.com
- ImprovedOptionsFrames addon has not yet been updated (only needs TOC change) .. I have done this update on the copy included with CensusPlus

7.0.2 - 10/28/2016 - Maintenance release - TOC change
- This version is set for WoW version 7.1
- Localization updates for Chinese (zhCN), French & German.
- at this time all version 7.0.x Censusplus uploads will be accepted at www.WarcraftRealms.com
- ImprovedOptionsFrames addon has not yet been updated (only needs TOC change) .. I have done this update on the copy included with CensusPlus

7.0.1 - 08/10/2016 - Maintenance release - update if new changes are important to you.
- Fixed Class display order.. both Race and Class process in order from right to left.
- Blizzard parses each word in the /who query so any query that contains "Hunter" as class will return both 'Hunter' and 'Demon Hunter'
- This version skips the query for 'Demon Hunter' as it is currently redundant.. shortens census run times.
- Note: 'Demon Hunters can be selected only by using /who c-"Demon", but the Hunter class can no longer be singled out for who results.

7.0.0 - 07/19/2016 - Mandatory update - Data file will be purged.
- Legion pre release & Legion expansion
- main window graphics adjusted to allow space for new class
- added Demon Hunter class
- adjusted Level location.. with added class and starting at Blizzard minimum tracking level of 20, the level area will also be good for a future expansion
- Gnome Hunters fully supported.
- YOU WILL NEED to configure your options.. so open the options pane and remember or write down the settings, so you can recreate them in this new version.

6.4.0 - 04/26/2016 - Mandatory update
- While doing Legion prep work I discovered that Pandaren Class breaks were not correctly enabled.
- This probably lead to under counts of Pandaren Shamans on high population realms.
- Realms that did not require requeuing on result overflow of /who -r Pandaren would not under count.
- CensusPlus main window Race and Class icon order changed to match current in game character creation screen order.
- Note the correct way to view the race/class icons is from Right to Left, as that is the order they must be processed.
- This release will purge the main CensusPlus_Database table.
- Upload your existing census data to www.WarcraftRealms.com before installing this update, or lose the info you collected.
- Uploads of previous acceptable release will be allowed thru Saturday 04/30/2016 after which only this version will be accepted for upload.
- YOU WILL NEED to configure your options.. so open the options pane and remember or write down the settings, so you can recreate them in this new version.

6.2.0.b - 10/27/2014 - tested on 6.0.3 beta as functional
- Localization variables modified to work with Localization tool at Curseforge.
- LibWho updated to current release and implementation fixed
- Translators have worked on the following frFR, deDE, ptBR, ruRU
- minimal to no support for esES, esMX, koKR, zhCN, and zhTW until people step up to do translations and reviews.
=== reminder www.warcraftrealms.com can only accept data in UTF-8 character set.
=== this means Russian, Korean, Chinese & Taiwan data can not be accepted at this time.

6.2.0.A - 10/22/2014 - French Localization updated.
6.2.0 - 10/20/2014
CensusPlus zip now contains two addon directories that need to be copied into your /Interface/addons folder
Be sure to delete first any pre-existing folder and files as new and renamed files are being used.
[CensusPlus] is the main folder for CensusPlus
[ImprovedOptionsFrame] is an optional but highly recommended as it allows you to resize and move the Blizzard Options panel.

Unzip the files into your %World of Warcraft/Interface/AddOns directory.

- valid for players using Blizzard's US, EU and TW data centers...
Korea and China realms are not currently identified well enough to allow CensusPlus to run.

- addon graphics completely overhauled.. now allows variable transparency of the addon panels in game.
- addon options integrated into standard Blizzard options panel.. with major changes in options
- mouseover tool tips for every option
- you can now set account wide settings for the addon
- you can now set character by character overrides from the account wide settings
- chat window command line settings have been demoted to immediate and very temporary option changes that go away on logout or modification via options panel.
- if you get confused by all the option variations there is a check box at the bottom of the options panel to turn on VERY chatty display of what options are currently valid.

- three levels of information display normal, verbose and a new stealth mode that suppresses nearly every chat window display
- census button animation - gives quick glance status of active census snapshots.
- improved auto-start and delayed-auto census control - 2 part control enable the check box THEN set your time delay,
auto-start activated when time setting is between 5-15 minutes
delayed-start for time setting between 16-29 minutes

- option of 4 different end of census audio notices. none, sound 1, sound 2, sound 3 - 2 part control enable the check box THEN select your sound file number.
- single default sound file is provided for all 3 slots, user can create their own unique sound snippets.
Note: blizzard allows playing of .mp3 and .ogg sound file types.
I recommend the free audio program Audacity available at http://audacity.sourceforge.net/
(remember to obey any copyright rules of your country if using and sharing snippets from copyrighted works)

- Localization... all (I hope) text strings are now modifiable via Localization files.
Note: due to the major change in Localization most older translations are invalid.
Help has been and continues to be requested in supplying translations via curse.com's addon author support site curseforge.com

And you noticed the next time you logged in it ran fine.

This is a problem that comes and goes.. it is a race condition between the main lua code and a separate section used for the button.

I have been replacing old code and intend to replace the button xml code in a near future version.
