Configuation GUI (main settings)


Bug Me Not is an AddOn with the goal to bug you less.
AUTO-CANCELLING: BMN can auto-cancel duel invites, group invites, guild invites, guild charter signature requests.
AUTO-IGNORE: BMN can automatically block and ignore people who do it unasked.
AUTO-REPLY: BMN can send custom auto-replies can be send to the "offender".
AUTO-ACCEPT: BMN can auto-accept incomign duel and party requests from friends and guild members.


New configuration GUI, no more slashcommands
Auto-accept duels and parties from friends/guild.



Type /bugmenot setup or /bmn setup to configure options.


To temporarily disable BMN use: /bmn skip (amount: 1-9) -- disables BMN for the next (amount) of actions BMN would normally prevent.
/bmn skip 0 -- ends skip and resumes normal operation.
So if you have group invited set to REJECT or IGNORE and want to allow the next group invite, use /bmn skip 1. If the next action BMN catches is actually a group invite, it will allow it and then resumes normal operation.


There are two methods of blocking in BugMeNot: OPTION REJECT: Just rejects the specific action. OPTION IGNORE: Rejects the action and puts the originator on your ignore list. If messaging is enabled it will sends the reject or ignore message to the originating player. The other options should be self-explanatory


When installed, the following options will be pre-set per character:
  • REJECT duels
  • ALLOW invites
  • PERMIT guildmembers
  • PERMIT friends
  • AUTO-ACCEPT disabled
  • DISABLED auto-whisper on rejects/ignores
  • REJECT guild invites
  • REJECT guild charter signature requests
  • DISABLED verbose, its silent by default
  • DISABLED auto-accept options.


</u> BugMeNot only supports english and german at the moment.
The addon should run on clients with a different language but will be all in english.
I really like to add SPANISH or FRENCH but would need someone to help with the localisation. If your realm is german (and BMN knows that) the default messages will be loaded in german otherwise in english.
If your client is german the addon will run with german localisation otherwise fall back to english.


The BugMeNot GUI doesn't work when you're also running GuildLaunchProfiler

    v1.6.1 posted, fixing most recent Blizzard updates. Trying to find out how to take the project over (since the original author has apparently abandoned it), so I can get it redistributed via Curse, etc.

    Fixed.  Working perfectly (so far as I can tell, haven't received enough messages that BugMeNot would challenge).

    Again, where do you want the patched package or files?

    Fixed (almost).  Still a problem with getting the multi-choice dropdown menus to properly post changes, but almost there.  At least it works (apparently); you just have to change your choices in the bugmenot.lua file at present.

    The bugmenot.xml file is a horror, apparently impossible to replace the unsupported "this:" with "self:".  So I'm trying all sorts of workarounds in the lua file itself, and therein lies the rub.  But I'm still working on it.  At least it works.

    Tell me how to upload the patched files.

    WoW 4.0.1 broke this, mainly because Blizzard no longer has the "this:" global variable.  I'm testing a patch now.
