I am updating here as well since some people are still downloading the addon and the first version contained bugs that were fixed in subsequent releases. As with all my addons, the newest versions, betas and alphas will be available on curseforge.com. I will endeavor to keep this page up to date with all of the released versions.

I just joined a guild and spammed every single member with a welcome.
That's over 500 welcomes.
Scary.

I've had this addon a long time and never seen that before, maybe because of the 2.4 updates... as we all know Blizzard is run by tinkery little gnomes who just love to change things.

Much of the time I'm busy doing something and don't notice new people joining, but I usually notice the auto-welcome itself.

Anyways I'm gonna have to remove this one for now.

NazGuildRecruiter

Hi! I didn't found a page for NazGuildRecruiter. I also tried sending you an e-mail, but since I've received no reply I'm hoping you'll read this bug report here. See below a slightly modified but better formatted version of the e-mail I sent you:

When I didn't found an official thread on WoWAce forum's for NazGuildRecruiter, I tried registering at your website to post a bug report, but it requires some special code I don't have. So I found your e-mail address there, and here I am.

What happens is this: with the current NGR version, I have to "/ngr attune" everytime I log into my character. The funny thing is, it says this in the chat:

Shutting myself off since you are in UberGuild and attuned to UberGuild. To attune to your current guild please type "/ngr attune"
I went to the code, found where the message appears, messed with it a little (I'm not LUA programmer, mind you), so that it became:

Code:
local agBLA = self:GetGuildName()
local agBLE = self.db.profile.guild
if agBLA ~= agBLE then --You are attempting to use this addon attuned to a different guild
   self:ScheduleEvent("Disable", function()
       self:Print('Shutting myself off since you are in ' .. agBLA .. ' and attuned to ' .. agBLE .. '.  To attune to your current guild please type "/ngr attune"')
       self:ToggleActive(false) -- turn yourself off
       end, 20)
   return
end
And attempted loading again. This time, I received an error saying the "self:Print" line caused an error because "agBLA" was nil. Thus, it seems there's a time when my guild information isn't available, but right afterwards it is, and I seem to be lucky enough to take the transition from one state to the other.

I searched in Google for an answer, and found something I think might help, although I'm not sure. It's a post originally made in the WoW Forums which was deleted from there but is still accessible through Google cache.

So, I'm looking forward for an updated version of this incredible useful addon! Until then, I'll keep re-attuning myself.

By the way: I've made a wiki page to your addon on the WoWAce Wiki. And someone else reported the bug there too.

I hope this helps! And if possible, please create an official thread on the WoWAce forums so that others might contact you and report problems in an easier way, okay?
PS.: Regarding NazGuildWelcome, I love it! Not because I don't care welcoming people by hand, but because I've set it to instruct new guild members on how to proceed to /join the shared chat channel we've set with other guilds, as well as to remember anyone reading the guild channel to not forget to also do so. It's way more than seven characters, and those who join know very well that I'm welcoming them, since I do 70% of our /givintes. So, don't mind too much those who don't like NazGuildWelcomer. It has at least one very good use!

Ah Ace vs non-Ace fighting *snicker*

Regardless of if you have the libs or not, you've published your addon. That means you have to assume that some user out there does not have the libs. That means their cost is included, like it or not.

For a single option Ace is really overboard. When I have mods with simple-to-no config, I just resort to having a local at the top of the file people can edit. If you had a compex config panel or such Ace would be fine.... but one single string? eew. Hell write your own slash handler and use a single-variable savedvar, there's really no need for profiles and all that other crap.

And don't think I say this because I don't work for Ace anymore. I always push SMART use of libs, even when I was with Ace. In fact, my own evaluations of the cost of Ace vs. my need is why I stopped using Ace. Yes, shared libs help "spread" the cost if they're used by many addons... but Ace is not small and cheap on the single-addon level, and when you publish with embeds the embeds are port of your cost.

People like you me sad for humanity sometimes . . .
Wow, you make many assumptions here. Shall I take them one by one?
  1. I believe personally that on my low-mid end laptop a higher load time is worth the increased performance in game. (this belief in how it occurs is based upon pages upon pages on the wowace forums, and changing my addons to almost all ace based addons, noting the difference. note: I have MANY addons)
  2. This addon was my simple attempt at learning how to use ACE2 to code an addon as that's the system of my choice based on #1 above.
  3. I plan on using this as a springboard to do more extensive addons based on ACE2
  4. Obviously no one is welcome in this community if still learning, or at least at a much lower skill than those greats. I'm glad to see you all did perfect work from the beginning.

Thank you for the welcoming feeling here for those two that had constructive criticism. Though based on the preponderance of "you suck" comments, I think this community is not for me.

You missed the whole pages about Ace on the wiki, it is not magically better because you share resources with other addons.

Nothing is without cost, WoW does not just say "Great, we need those files loaded, get it done" and they magically appear, everything has a cost to do even if another version gets discarded because it's older it still has a cost in the game having to load the file, and the file running until it's told to exit.

Actually I am using ace libs to do all of this (the addon minus the libs is only 3kb in total, and that's so you can change your message in game).

As for the memory useage, my suggestion to anyone that might be thinking about using this is that if you already have the ace libs for other addons (as I do) then this is fine, if not then the one posted directly below (thank you btw, it illustrates alot to the complete lua/wow newbie like me) will be better.

I made you a low memory version of your addon (It even fits in a macro)

Code:
local f = CreateFrame("Frame")
f:SetScript("OnEvent", function(_, _, msg)
	local n = string.match(msg, "(.+) has joined the guild")
	if( n ) then
		SendChatMessage("Welcome " .. n, "GUILD");
	end
end)
f:RegisterEvent("CHAT_MSG_SYSTEM")

Though maybe an option to just put up an SCT when someone joins . . .
there's an Ace lib for that

A number of devs think "automated" social mods are, well, a waste of time (indie just comes across as a dick any time he posts). If you want to personally welcome someone, do it. If you want a mod to remind you to welcome someone, write one. But if you just want a mod to automatically welcome them so you don't have to worry about forgetting... well that's just cold and heartless! Take the time to press those 7 keys, it'll mean (slightly) more.

Auto-social mods are kinda like those automatic "Heal me!" mods. Sound good in theory, but in practice it's just annoying and usually only results in the healer healing you less.

Sign me up for a shipment of that stuff.

Seriously do you object to the addon specifically? or to making sure you welcome someone to the guild even if you might be in the middle of a fight?
