GuildBOT! 1.6.3

v1.6.4 -> ADD'D ReminderBot, Displays Messages Advertising GuildBot, but totaly customizable to any custom messages to a set time to display.

NOTE: NEW VERSION 1.6.3nc - if you are updating use this command if you get errors! "/script SetupVar["COUNT"] = 0;" you should only have to use that command once, first use-only when upgrading.. I tried to impliment it into the code, but wrote 5 different codes, and it messed up..

Also, if you are having trouble using it... try to Dissable other addons and run it standalone. could be an addon conflict, i will try to update using unique variables if this is the case.

it seems someone has told me why its not working for some users, i will be focusing on this very soon on the next update if 1.6.3 doesnt solve this. but should work standalone if you dissable other addons.

Color codes removed from this version, i guess its one of the things blizzard has changed from WOTLK to CATA.. This should work!


GuildBot has Saved me from guild members asking the same questions over and over again! It also helps Noobies Find info they need So they can quit asking the guildmaster, knowing im allways busy working on our guild website or managing our guild forum, or running raids, or leading guild BG's, etc etc...

This Addon saves GM's Alot of hassle!

Also sets up alot of options for GM's.... you can share your tradeskill in guild using $TRADEBOT, it saves all professions to a stored database so they only have to register once, and any guild member can access the who is online with a tradeskill they need or want!

Curently Setup for WOTLK, Confirmed compatible for CATACLYSM... $REPBOT has CATA data!

Only setup for Guildmaster use right now, officer use is in the works... you can't have more than 1 copy running in the guild at a time, you will get double messages..

if you like it, send me an email! Many guild members who have used it tell me its the neatest thing they have ever seen!! They like it alot, hope u do!

I need some ideas, so please email me your ideas, not sure if ill be able to follow the download sites where this is uploaded because I have a busy schedule and im currently the only one working on this project!

Taking PAYPAL donations if you like it, any amount! it took me a while to designand develop and debug!!!

    Ok oops my fault in regards of $HELP guess i was to tired and using WIM didn't helped.

    $HELP works fine problem in WIM is it just went away however after using $GUILDBOT command i noticed that the message with the commands was there but after receiving the 2nd Line it looked like it was the only message recieved.

    $TRADEBOT command works fine but to be honest that is a feature i personally wouldn't use do the build in WoW roster has the Tradeskill feature.

    In regards of suggestion i kinda thought about to look what the Anarchy Online / Age of Conan Chat bots could do but didnt looked yet. The best thing about em was basically that they worked as a IRC chat relay however i doubt that is posiible here.

    @Nexxor: Go

    wow... ok... the $GUILDBOT command is the same as help...

    the $ONLINE command, is one of the most bugged commands...

    how about tradebot? does that work can u register your name? there is one problem with tradebot, after you register, the info stay in memory, so if 5 people register, its good to type "/script ReloadUI" so it saves them to disk, it will when you relog, but if your client crashes or you alt-f4, you loose the info...

    i will look into the $help command... thanks.... please send any comments or suggestions! i also believe there should be a certain format for the messages recieved, i was gonna redo all of the messages soon, but if they are clear enough or not, please let me know, i tried to be specific.. or if i should add a - " - quote mark, i can do that also?!

    Ok got GuildBOT! 1.6.3nc1 for 4.1 working now.

    However $HELP only gives you the last line

    SendChatMessage("[GuildBot] Commands have to be in CAPS", "WHISPER", nil, sender);

    And i actually never seen

    print("GuildBot Online!!! Use /gbot or /guildbot for GUI");

    In regards of $ONLINE command (shows total of online and offline members)
    It shows the total of members, 4 players where on at the time but showed 99.

    Hey Myke,

    i really like the idea of this addon, i just cant get it to work.

    the latest version is installed, and no matter what i type, nothing shows up. ive tried all combinations of commands

    typing $ with anything uppercase doesnt do anything, the main GUI appears with /gbot, ive added all the info there and still nothing happens.

    any assistance would be great, ive searched everywhere this is uploaded and your site, but cant see any more issues.
