Probably an odd request.

Hey all.

I need an addon that will check who joins a guild and will promote them/kick them etc depending who they are.

Any help would be great.

Based on what? Your friendslist? If they have a main in the guild? Or Blacklisted/whitelisted?

Say someone joins the guild, addon checks who it is and then will promote or gkick that player.

Most people who join nothing would happen.

I multi-box and often has alts joining and leaving one of my guilds all the time and would like it to auto-promote them as they join and in some cases remove them instead.

"who it is" how would the addon know who is joining the guild?

yeh ... "who it is" is not really clear

you could make it so that your alt whispers your main, so the promoting is done automatically via a trigger, which in this case would be a whispered specific word

Addons cannot determine whetherwhether two characters belong to the same person. You would need a hardcoded (eg. you type them in by hand) list of names for "promote these people to this rank" and "remove these people".

However, unless it's a frequent occurrence that a character you removed from the guild is reinvited by someone else against your wishes, I don't see much use in an "automatically remove these people from the guild" list, especially since you'd have to update it by hand anyway. If you're going to type in by hand a list of names to remove, you might as well just remove them by hand instead.

Same thing goes for alts you're adding; unless you're going to constantly be putting the alts into the guild, leaving, rejoining, leaving, rejoining, you're not really going to save any time by typing their names into a list to automate promoting them, over just promoting them.

Also, in case you weren't aware, you can promote or remove people from a guild from the command line:

/gremove Somebody
/gpromote Somebody

Well are you trying to promote everyone in your guild or just some of them? How you can identify (in a way that addons can also) them?

Just some of them, I was thinking I could add the names of the players to promote etc in the addon.
