Give Me Peace
Released 9th December 2011
Are you tired of the constant spam whispered to you from Gold sellers, Scammers, and other random whispers such as boost requests?
This addon is designed to block ALL whispers sent to your character who are not first authorised by you and silenty whisper the blocked player informing them that their whisper was hidden from you and ignored. Note that GM whispers are automatically authorised.
On loading of your character both your friends and guild list are scanned and automatically authorised by the addon and any whispers from those players will be shown as normal unless you manually add a player from your friends or guild list to the built in ignore feature.
Why did I write this?
Give Me Peace is an addon which I designed and programmed because of a few hours of constant whisper spam caused by a level 1 standing in Stormwind shouting "LFM For The Alliance, whisper Afterlife for invite".
•Auto scan friends/guild on login, and when a guild member joins.
•Auto authorise those you whisper first - i.e. when you whisper someone to join a raid or party.
•Inform the blocked player that his whisper was ignored and not visible by you and telling him if he feels he shouldnt be blocked to send you a in-game mail.
•Customise the whisper sent to the blocked player.
•Add/Delete or Ignore players manually - remember that all who are not authorised are ignored automatically, the ignore option is to override a friend or guild member who was scanned and authorised on login.
•Auto allow GM whispers.
•Log all blocked messages for the current session which can be viewed by typing /peace blocked
The default message sent to a player who is not on your authorised list reads:
"Important: Your whisper was rejected and hidden from <your name> because you are not on <your name>'s list of authorised friends. If you feel you should be on <your name>'s list then please send an in-game mail."
This default message is stored in the local.lua file and can be translated to your native language. If you translate this file please find the time to send it to me by private message and i'll include it in the release.
For options use /peace in-game. For quick switching ON/OFF of the addon you can use /peace toggle from the chat or inside a macro on your spell bar.
I hope you enjoy the use of this addon and the peace it brings with it. Please feel free to provide any feedback or offer suggestions.
