Applicant Checking UI


Applicant Checking... What is it used for? It's used to see who's online in your guild's "Requests" list.

It sits around, waiting for you to open your guild roster. When you do, it sends invisible addon messages to all the players on the list, and waiting to see if the system responds back that they aren't playing. After a set timeout period, the addon will update the status of all of the users on the list.

This addon is a must-have for officers and GMs of pretty much any guild. It does not drastically change the interface, and requires very little memory and bandwidth to do what it does (It sends "GAOC!" as the header and a 0x01 byte as the message.), so you don't need to worry about whether to leave it on or not.

There is a built-in throttle as well, to keep the bandwidth usage down. The addon will only perform a check 30 seconds after the last check was performed... It checks based on an event that is fired, not on a timer.

Important Message: If you were using GAOC prior to 1.2, the "Spam" setting will not be set. To enable it, which is the default setting, type /gaoc spam.


The addon has some pretty basic commands, and at the moment does not provide an in game help for them, so here they are

/gaoc on

Turns on the applicant checking, and shows the icons in the default guild UI

/gaoc off

Turns off the applicant checking, and modifications to the guild UI

/gaoc force

Shows the recruits list, and updates the icons.

/gaoc spam

Toggles the spamming of recruit-list updates.

    @yoshimo: Go It's faster than using /who queries. This addon is designed to get an instant response as soon as the window is open, instead of say how WIM does it, where the information isn't required by the addon.

    There's also the fact that each successive /who query takes longer and longer to process, there's no spam limit as far as I am aware for "CHAT_MSG_ADDON" events.

    Why addonmessages and not just a simple /who -query?
