DawnMod
Version: 1.13
by: dwn_at_spinebreaker [More]
This addon is primarily a chat filter with the purpose of getting rid of spam and some of the other things that make your WoW life less enjoyable.

Use: /DM or left-click the mini-map button for options.


* Features *
See "DawnMod.txt" (in the zip file) for the full list.

- Removes; guild spam, gold spam, link spam (thunderfury, hand of rag, etc), mod spam, and annoying spam.
- Fixes (some) bad spelling, bad capitalization, PEOPLE WHO TYPE IN ALL CAPS, and swearing.
- Blocks recount/skada output (cause you need to know who did the most dps on the trash pack in a level 20 dungeon!)
- Blocks /1 (general chat) when you're in a party or raid.
- Blocks ASCII "art", foreign languages (high bit UTF-8 characters), and multi-line macros.
- Strips raid marks ({star} etc.) and URLs from global chat channels.
- Traps whispers while you're in combat so you don't get distracted mid-fight.
- Has a filter for NPCs (if you dont care that the zeppelin just arrived), system messages (because you don't care that dpser#6452 just got tipsy) and other built-in WoW messages which you can do without.
- Has a whitelist for people who'se messages you just can't live without.
- Tracks 'karma'. Acceptable messages give karma. Unacceptable messages remove it. If someone has a low enough karma, you won't be subjected to their messages anymore.
-- Notes for 1.13 (05-Jan-2013) --

v 1.13 05-Jan-2013
- Changed exactly one line of code because 'MAX_BATTLEFIELD_QUEUES' was removed
from the WoW API.


FYI. The 'InviteWord' thingy doesn't work with battlenet (real ID) whispers..

As always, see 'DawnMod.txt' for further info.

Yeah a mod with my name in it! Finally!

Err, seriously, I think the name should be a littler more describe the type/use/meaning of the addon. Don't you think? Maybe something like "XYZ Chatfilter", or so.

Just my 2 cents.

I agree but "miscelaneous-junk-filter-and-fixer-stuff-upperer" was a bit too long.

It's really funny how I was thinking the other night while searching the addon sites...

"Since all the things they can do now with chat filters, I sorta hope someone would come out with an addon that corrects spelling automatically for people who spell incorrectly all the time... or for people who are clueless on acronyms and replace it with the real word but colored red or something to know it has been corrected"

Anyways, thanks for this! I'll try it out.

8x DawnMod\DawnMod-1.00.lua:3693: attempt to index global "DawnModConfig" (a nil value)
DawnMod\DawnMod-1.00.lua:3693: in function "ConfigWindow"
DawnMod-1.00\DawnMod_MiniMap.lua:51: in function <DawnMod\DawnMod_MiniMap.lua:49>

Locals:
self = DMMinimapButton {
 0 = <userdata>
 UpdateIcon = <func> @DawnMod\DawnMod_MiniMap.lua:183
 DoDragCheck = <func> @DawnMod\DawnMod_MiniMap.lua:86
 OnDragStop = <func> @DawnMod\DawnMod_MiniMap.lua:103
 MBFbTex = MBFBackground {}
 OnMouseUp = <func> @DawnMod\DawnMod_MiniMap.lua:128
 Begin = <func> @DawnMod\DawnMod_MiniMap.lua:18
 UpdatePosition = <func> @DawnMod\DawnMod_MiniMap.lua:144
 MBFoTex = MBFOverlay {}
 icon = <unnamed> {}
 OnDragStart = <func> @DawnMod\DawnMod_MiniMap.lua:94
 SetVisibility = <func> @DawnMod\DawnMod_MiniMap.lua:136
 OnUpdate = <func> @DawnMod\DawnMod_MiniMap.lua:111
 OnMouseDown = <func> @DawnMod\DawnMod_MiniMap.lua:123
}

This mod has a: /explain <acronym>
which covers most of the common ones you see in WoW.

The actual spelling fixer isn't anywhere near comprehensive. It just has a list of the stuff which I see on a regular basis (rouge, tnak, plx and the like).

Apologies. Will be rectified shortly.

Edit: Someone forgot to put the .XML file (for the configuration UI) in the ZIP. Sorry for the oversight. Should be fixed as soon as the new zip passes approval.

okay I can open it now, but why is the frame not able to be dragged? since its with a alpha.. I cannot really see the options because of the addons in the background having text and stuff which bleeds through.. (able to be seen and it laps the forward text of your addon)


edit:
this is awesome! it blocks those idiotic norris jokes! Thanks!

edit2:
does the Ascii art block feature, block players with Ascii characters in their character names? like.. does it block their messages / name of any messages they may send you? if so I'm just gonna keep that disabled..

Edit: Quick fix. The config options thingy is now movable again.

It used to be
Will investigate when I get back from work.

I leveled in the barrens once upon a time

edit: I misunderstood your question.

The answer is no. It will not block someone's message for having high-ascii characters in their name.

However... it probably wont kill you to leave that unchecked. It was originally intended for the ascii "pictures" which people would post in trade chat during WotLK. Since Blizzard now limits people to 2 messages per (what?) 30 secs, they're not as prevalent anymore.

I can understand that.

In future, simply genuflecting will be sufficient

any way you can add ignores of multiple grats from the same person within a certain time frame?

some people do 3 line ascii and then say grats in a new line at the end...
so far its not being blocked.. I don't want single line grats to be blocked but I would like it if they say grats more then once per second.

The quick answer is to set the 'poster lockout' (it's the top slider on the configuration window) to 1 or 2 seconds, then uncheck the 'global channels only' checkbox to the right of the slider. The result is that when someone sends a message, you won't see anything else from them for the next 2 seconds.

The downside to doing this if someone uses a multiline macro which you want to see (for example a boss strat), of if you have friends who
16:30.54 [party]: have
16:30.54 [party]: to <- blocked
16:30.55 [party]: press <- blocked
16:30.55 [party]: enter <- blocked
16:30.56 [party]: after
16:30.57 [party]: every <- blocked
16:30.57 [party]: word. <- blocked

There will be a whitelist when I get the time to make one.

Ideally, I'd like to avoid the necessity of having one but unfortunately, life sometimes isn't as neat as I'd like it to be.
