GUILD ROSTER MANAGER
==================
FOREWORD

NOTE:
I wrote this addon mostly for myself. As someone who has been a guild leader for many years, there are just some features I have wanted for quite a while, and I don't feel like the current options truly fit my needs and desires. I want to do more than just bring something to the table that currently doesn't exist, but instead, I wanted to bring it to the table in a clean, easy-to-use UI, that was logical, that was customizable, and something that could be expanded upon on request. I also built it 100% from the ground up. Zero dependencies. Zero libraries added. Zero UI taint. I built everything and every frame from scratch.

**VERSION 8.2R1.74 DATE: September 19th, 2019**

*Smoothing some more things out!!!*

*Note: Each update will be tagged with **Classic/Retail/Both** for context*

**--------------**
**QUALITY OF LIFE**
**--------------**

* BOTH: Brazilian Portuguese has been nearly fully transalted and is now selectable in the drop-down as an option. TY @@Drakar#0666 (Discord)

* BOTH: Logic on system message class coloring has been updated. You can now enable/disable "Guild member alert" system messages to include the class color rather than it be enabled by default in the General Options tab.

* BOTH: Scanning process in checking for changes is now improved. I actually haven't looked at this in quite a while but identified an inefficieny in it that could result in it skipping a pass, so even if you had it set to scan once per say, 30 seconds, it might only check for changes once per 60 seconds, on the 2nd attempt, or if you check every 10 seconds, then once per 20 seconds, skipping every other pass. This was a surprising improvement.

* BOTH: If a guild member that uses GRM is promoted or demoted themselves, their rank permissions should now be logged instantly so to avoid any confusion as to why sync permission may or may not functioning correctly. There may be a slight delay in Classic compared to retail here

* BOTH: The "Ignore Macro Tool Filters" button should now no longer overlap the alts window when you have 12 alts and will adjust its spacing if < 12 or > 12 or exactly 12, which is necessary

* BOTH: Language names are now translated in all 14 supported langues in their language selection dropdowns.

* BOTH Localization efforts for translation work can now create their very own /grm slash command. /grm not make sense in your language? Make your own acronym!!! Note, /grm will always work, it allows you to create an additional slash command trigger. I have placed the slash command option at the top of each locale file

* BOTH: Cleaned up a few grammar mistakes pointed out!

* BOTH: When making a global setting change to the custom note, it not only forces the sync rank restriction for all, it also will reset all the individual notes to the given rank level to normalize them. This is necessary as too many were forcing filtering out. This can be retriggered the next time the rank is restriction is changed for all or for all new settings.

**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* BOTH: The "Recommendations" to suggest to kick a player was only reporting on 1 name per pass due to an error. It now should properly report all of them together in a group.

* BOTH: Kicking all alts should now properly work consistently and populate the kick macro tool

* BOTH: Right click to confirm verified dates the button should now properly disappear when right-clicking player names to set as main/alt and should now be properly space when right-clicking Notification settting on player status - as well as fixed some unnoticed sizing issues too.

* RETAIL: Potentially fixed an issue of a growing tooltip bug in the roster. Let me know!

* RETAIL: Mouseover was not working on the Old Roster window after last update - as well as some other issues with checkbox on Community window. This is resolved now.

* RETAIL: Found a potential bug that can cause something to endlessly loop when lots of new people join back to back, quickly. Escape timer was re-engaging back to zero on each loop.


**VERSION 8.2R1.73 DATE: September 17th, 2019**

*A staggering amount of work went into this update over the last week. But, you see, I am motivated to get everything smoothed out as soon as possible so I can start enjoying Classic myself! With that being said, lots of busy work here, bug fixing, and even some new stuff. I find that as I dig into this port to Classic I keep stumbling upon old code where I go, "Why did I do it like that?" lol - so I keep getting distracted by all these little tangents. Thank you for your patience. Come check, see if your bug got fixed!*

*Note: Each update will be tagged with **Classic/Retail/Both** for context*

***NEW FEATURES***

* Added a "Confirm Date" button to the right-Click menu so you can just quickly confirm a date if it is already accurate. This applies to the "!!" unverified date tags. It should only appear if the date is unverified when you right click.

**--------------**
**QUALITY OF LIFE**
**--------------**

* RETAIL: Players promoted/demoted should now be detected instantly in retail, and no longer just when you do it, but if another officer in the guild changes someone's rank you will instantly update yours based on the system message. Please note that this does not work in Classic in full capacity due to limitations of the lack of a guild event log. The compromise is GRM will instantly detect your own changes, but not necessarily those of your officers when it comes to promotions/demotions. This may change in the future, but it will require me to go parse the strings for 11 clients rather than rely on the logs, so not priority.

* RETAIL: People kicked/leaving the guild should now also be consistently detected instantly. Same circumtstance for Classic as above.

* RETAIL: RankdropDown text now is updated when rank change occurs. For some reason Blizz has still not updated this text error on the CommunityFrame guild interface. I bandaid it for now for them.

* CLASSIC: The ability to ban a player when removing them from the guild, as well as ban all of their alts has been fully integrated in to Classic now. The window should now appear.

* BOTH: When kicking a player from the guild, if you select to kick all their alts as well, the process is now fully integrated into the Macro Tool, and the window will popup ready for hotkey action with the macro already built and ready to go. This will allow you to much easier kick all their alts within seconds of you kicking them as well.

* BOTH: There is now a 3rd option when a player leaves the guild. The log reports that the player was kicked, that they left the guild, or if it is not able to be determined, that they are no longer in the guild. The 3rd option applies more towards Classic, but can definitely apply in retail. It just makes more sense to say "The player is no longer in the guild" than "The player left the guild" when it cannot be determined if they were kicked or they left, because the action occurred when you were not online.

* BOTH: Mouseover window can now be disabled in Retail community frame, or in the Classic roster frame as well... Checkboxes are in slightly different positions but still obvious

* BOTH: The addon will no longer rely on adding people to your friends list to determine their server status, if they are there or not. A much more reliable and faster method has been implemented. Yay! In the next retail patch, the new recruitment interface will do away with that "hackery" completely as well. Thankfully! If you unfortunately encountered the annoying error of friends that were not removed from your lists due to a crash of GRM before it could... use the following script in chat (be warned, it will clear ALL non battle.net friends).

'/run GRM.ClearFriendsList()'

* BOTH: Disable and Enabling the Birthday feature is now available with a checkbox right in the Audit window (this will also hide the bday info on the mouseover window if disabled)

* BOTH: "Check All" option on the log side panel where you can filter everything now behaves better. The check all should auto be checked if all are already checked, and it will uncheck as you uncheck one. Overall UX is better

* BOTH: On Adding a player to the "Ignore List" for the Macro tool, you can now CTRL-Click their checkbox on the bottom left mouseover to either add or remove all their alts as well from or to the list.

* BOTH: Log should now properly refresh if a player rejoins the guild and the log is open without needing to click off and rejoin

* BOTH: Language should now properly localize when player changes them on the mouseoverTooltip button

* BOTH: Cleaned up the patching process a bit. This largely does not affect most players, but in the case of someone who installed a very early version of GRM and then updated to the most new version, many updates would need to be patched and applied and could be a bit of a resource hog the first time on login causing the game to possibly momentarily freeze until completion, or worst case, time-out altogether. Note, this would only affect someone that installed the addon probably > 1.5 to 2 years ago and never updated since then. But, I have to look forward in that as time goes on the potential issue can only exacerbate. This also smooths out any issues of freezing during an update as it breaks them up into blocks of 5 patches per 2 seconds through a recursive patching method that is just more efficient. It will even announce to the player when a patch is being applied and when that is completely, no longer just a "GRM update to version XXXX" - it will still say that, but in case of patches being applied, it will announce them, announce completion, and announce how much work was done.

**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* CLASSIC: Taint should (hopefully) no longer be an issue in Classic. Tthere was an issue where the addon would block certain actions from occurring due to taint. In retail the exact method is used with no taint in communities, but in Classic it was problematic due to a change in permissions and UI restrictions.

* CLASSIC: Addon should no longer, **for real this time lol**, report players were demoted to the same rank when nothing happened.

* CLASSIC: Character count should no longer appear on the popup window unless editing the MOTD

* CLASSIC: Mouseover should continue to work proprely on the "Guild Status" screen. Some cases it would hide and then stay hidden.

* CLASSIC: Fixed and issue with live tracking of changes in the guild would stop scanning periodically after a player joined the guild

* BOTH: Hybrid Scrollframes were throwing an error if you tried to scroll and there wasn't enough data that required there to even be scrolling. This used to not be an issue until I broke it recently of course! I accidentally had enabled the scrollwheel action when maxScrollLength equaled to zero, when it should have been disabled. Simple fix at least.

* BOTH: Addon was erroneously reporting player name changes and overwriting player names with a date timestamp! Oops! This also would end up with a downstream mess of issues, from false rank renames, etc...

* BOTH: Fixed an issue where even if you have disabled reporting to the CHAT that the player left the guild, it still did.

* BOTH: Players using Cyrillic characters were unable to properly input some names as bans due to a formatting issue and it not parsing it correctly with some input error protection. This is resolved now, but affected players using the Russian Client.


**VERSION 8.2R1.72 DATE: September 10th, 2019**

* Major bug fix - for many addon would not load in 1.71 update - this is resolved

* Player nameChanges should now report properly.


**VERSION 8.2R1.71 DATE: September 9th, 2019**

*More progress on the path to smoothing out Classic!*

**--------------**
**QUALITY OF LIFE**
**--------------**

* QOL1: Classic - Social Micro button should now properly show a localized tooltip for all languages

* QOL2: Classic - Ctrl-hotkey (typically CTRL-J) keybind is unnecessary in Classic and is now removed

* QOL3: Classic - Reputation on player mouseover window is not relevant in Classic and is now removed

* QOL4: Classic - Several irrelevant "Options" configurations are made more obvious to not be applicable in Classic.

* QOL5: Both - When closing the members detail window (where you can do promotions), it doesn't immediately release the pause on mouseover if the player mouseover frame is still visible. Either closing the window or 1 more ESC key will do it. Feels better, imo.

* QOL6: BOTH: When editing a player date, rather than the starting date being today's date, it will instead be the corresponding date that is to be edited.

**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* BUG1: Classic - Rank changes should now properly log when you promote and demote people!

* BUG2: Classic - Players should no longer be reported as having gotten a demotion when they join the guild, in some cases.

* BUG3: Classic - Players should be unhighlighted and unselected now with the Guild Roster properly as you mouseover from one to the next

* BUG4: Classic - Compatibility built with ElvUI again, since they are still calling many community frames, it can error out GRM.

* BUG5: Classic - Mouseover should now work on the roster window for both "Player Status" and "Guild Status" settings...

* BUG6: Classic - Mouseover window should now be properly pinned to the guild roster in all cases.

* BUG7: Classic - Critical German Client only bug that caused tons of /ginfo system message spam. Oops!

* BUG8: BOTH - Adding and removing ranks to a guild should properly report how many to the log now.

* BUG9: BOTH - Keybind for opening the roster should not overwrite yours now if it already exists. Oops!

* BUG10: BOTH - Found that when a player not only joins the guild, but is promoted to a higher rank than the initial, the log was reporting this. But, in some cases it was logging a double report of a rank. It would have 2 listing in the mouseover history of promotions of the same exact promotion on the same day. Furthermore, this could error out in Classic where if it was not found in the event log, since it can't be, it would report a nil, throwing an error on mouseover. Database is cleaned up and prevented from occurring. This CAN technically happen in retail, but less likely for reasons I won't bore you with.

* BUG11: BOTH - Macro tool the recommendations to kick if player offline was accidentally set to a default of after 75 months, or in other words, 6 years and 3 months offline lol. If you had not already changed this the settings will be reset to their proper default recommendation of 12 months. This does not re-enable it if you have it disabled. It only changes the stored month interval.

* BUG12: BOTH - The ESCAPE key should once again properly work if you open the macro tool. It was not bringing up the game menu after loading the macro tool and it was messing up some things.

* BUG13: BOTH - Critical storage wasting bug. If you ever used /grm clearguild it created a 2nd index of the backups, wastefully. This now purges the double backups and removes the bug

* BUG14: BOTH - Ban reason count 14/0 on first focus when adding a ban. For some reason it was tallying maxLetters rather than maxBytes. It has to be set to maxBytes for sync purposes, rather than letters, as some alt-code type special characters or asian characters can take up 3 bytes (but count only as 1 character). 75 characters could be 225 bytes in theory, whilst 75 Bytes is 75 bytes.


**VERSION 8.2R1.70 DATE: September 5th, 2019**

*Minor update in regards to smoothing out some bugs for both Classic and retail*

**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* BUG1: CLASSIC - Promotions/Demotions that you make should now properly instantly trigger the change to the roster and report to the log

* BUG2: CLASSIC - Fixed an issue that could cause a Lua error when an invited player joins the guild.

* BUG3: CLASSIC - Fixed an issue that could prevent a Classic addon user from loading GRM properly due to a previously loaded incompatible build. Popup window will appear on logon requiring you to confirm the action and reload the UI to resolve the bug.

* BUG4: Default recommend to kick a player was accidentally set to only announce after 75 months lol. Oops! Shoulda been 12

* BUG5: Join dates detected live should now properly again be stored as verified information of that moment (promotion/demotions already does)

* BUG6: Fixed a bug that would cause a Lua error when adding an alt to a "main" where the alt had their bday set to "unknown" - the alt would still add, but it would error out and fill to reset the addAlt window. This is resolved now.

* BUG7: The Macro Tool button should now be properly sized, and the 2 buttons above the roster have had their font size increase a bit.


**VERSION 8.2R1.69 DATE: September 4th, 2019**

**CLASSIC COMPATIBILITY RELEASE**

*That's right! I went ahead and ported this to WoW Classic. This was not a small undertaking. GRM is deeply integrated into the guild interface and with BFA 8.0 release of Communities I decided to go all-in and intertwine the addon into the modern interface. I even abandoned some old data pull methods relying on the original roster and instead relied on the speedier "CommunitiesUtil" and "C_Club" API collection. This is not accessible in Classic. It meant reverting a great deal of work, and then adapting it to what I had built since BFA had launched.*

*As such, I have somewhat made the assumption that one day Blizz might release TBC Classic, and even WOTLK Classic some years down the road. So, rather than go through this process again, maybe 2 or 3 years from now, I have decided to take pre-emptive action and I basically rebuilt much of the addon with a bit more flexibility for handling these changes on the future down to not just expansion changes, but even individual "Builds" or patches. This should save me some future headaches. I also did this very a very important reason. Coding is time-consuming. This is a hobby of mine, at the end of the day. I still have my wife and kids, my career, my other distractions in life, and as such GRM remains basically my interest as I have time to put into it. This is just me making sure that my time doesn't get too buried into it as it continues to grow. By ensuring I have only 1 single code-base I have to deal with, rather than 1 for Classic, and 1 for Retail (and if more epxansions came out 1 for each of them), I instead get to deal with just 1 single code-base and my life is a heck of a lot easier. This may help explain why my release of Classic maybe took a bit more time and effort than usual.*

**Limitiations of Classic:**

* No in-game Calendar. This means no adding anniversaries and birthdays to the calendar. As such, I have temporarily disabled anniversary/bday announcements until I decide what I want to do... I am considering making at least a Classic unique "list" of upcoming anniversaries and bdays for leadership to reference. Until then it is disabled.

* No guild event log. It did not exist in Classic. This is that tiny log you can click that tells you the last 100 events in your guild, like who kicked a player, who invited a player and so on. Since this log does not exist, while GRM can detect that a player joined the guild or left it, the addon cannot determine who invited the person, or who promoted them. Sadly, you will have to rely on just knowing they were promoted. There is currently no server data that provides this information in Classic.

* More untrustworthy dates. Because the addon cannot know the exact date a person joined the guild. For example, let's say you are offline 3 days, you logon and find 10 new memebers. Before, in retail, GRM could look at the event log and pull the exact dates (as long as it was within the last 100 events). Well, in Classic there is no way to know when in the last 3 days it occurred. So, it just adds a timestamp of when you logged in. Those dates are flagged with 2 red exclamation points as "unverified" - This prevents unverified data from syncing to others. To verify all you need to do is right click the date on the player mouseover window, edit it or confirm it.

* Some limitiations on the speed information is accessible. With Communities, if someone joined the guild I could pull their full data and build a metadata profile of their character instantly. With Classic I have to wait for a callback from the server indicating the data has been refreshed. This can take up to 10 seconds when a player joins for it to trigger them in the guild. If you currently have the roster window open, it will update in less than a second, but in Classic, if the Guild Roster is closed, it won't do on-the-fly updates of roster info.

* Yay, most features still work just fine!


***Classic Specific Updates***

* CLASSIC1: GRM fully ported and working!!!

* CLASSIC2: Opening the Guild Info now auto-focuses the edit box, it also only closes the Guild Info frame when pressing ESCAPE key rather than closing the entire guild roster.

* CLASSIC3: Social Micro Button (since there is no guild/community button in Classic), I added a tooltip explanation and the ability to CTRL-CLICK that button to open guild window. CTRL-J also works, and added the keybind default to "J" to open guild roster (it was not set by default)

* CLASSIC4: Icon texture was unavailable for the minimap, so in classic a different texture is used. This also applies to the macro button icons.


***NEW FEATURES***

**Tagging and Flagging unverified dates (TY @Ayr on Discord)**

*Previously briefly touched on this in regards to Classic unverified dates. Yes, this works retroactively with your databases, as the information was already there.*

*Unverified dates exist because they were not able to be verified by using the guild event log. You NEED to have verified data to be "safe to sync." However, if the date is not discovered, or you are playing Classic, then it becomes untrustworthy data. These dates will now be obviously tagged with a “!!” red in front of the dates on both the player window and the audit, as well as a mouseover tooltip explanation on how to resolve them. These will automatically be removed if you sync with a guildie with verified data, or you Edit the data yourself and confirm it. What we don't want to happen is say a guildie has been offline for 3 months, logs in, tags a bunch of dates as the day he logged in, since no other dates were discoverable, and then sync that bad data over, ultimately overwriting accurate data because it is logged as newer. That would be bad. He still has a reference point date from when he logged on, but he won’t share that with you until data is verified.*


**--------------**
**QUALITY OF LIFE**
**--------------**

* QOL1: AFK notification system, or players going offline/coming online, is now wholly independent of the roster process, so even if you have it to never scan for changes except when you logon. You can still right-click the AFK/Offline status of the player on the mouseover window and set to be notified of their return. If the roster window is open it will now notify you within 1 second of the update. If it is closed the server will push the information out within 10 seconds, so it is much much more reliable and usable.


**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* BUG1: Fixed an issue with the recruitment window getting repeated hooks causing message spam on a ginvite and some additional guild check spam on the back end was unnecessary ( TY @Xulu on Discord)

* BUG2: Fixed an issue where sync was not working properly in all cases in regards to birthday information.

* BUG3: In the GRM Macro tool "safe" list the tooltip was not stating the time offline properly for "Kick" actions being ignored.

* BUG4: Officer note change message was not being reported instantly to the chat log when manually editing the officer note with GRM

* BUG5: Audit frames should now properly update LIVE as changes between players are sync'd. Some data was not updating visually on the fly.

* BUG6: /grm center should now properly center frames again, storing the positions between sessions. Useful if a player drags a frame off screen

* BUG7: Fixed an issue that could prevent some people from getting GRM to initialize on first login.


**VERSION 8.2R1.68 DATE: August 28th, 2019**

**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* BUG1: Fixed an issue in regards to people that used the original /groster - the "OnUpdate" handler of the new Tool's button was erroring out.

* BUG2: Ignore recommendations unless all in the alt grouping were inactive was not filtering properly. This is now updated.

* BUG3: Frames should now properly auto-update and repopulate the lists on changes to the roster, such as settings changes, or add/remove alts


**VERSION 8.2R1.67 DATE: August 26th, 2019**

*NOTE: This is NOT a compatibility update for Classic. I am planning on it. I have built a lot of backend infrastructure to help the process. But, I am pushing this out because I wanted to be done with it so I can focus on Classic!*

***NEW FEATURES***

**Macro Tool**

*This new Macro Tool is to assist players in being able to do things far more streamlined and easier since Blizz restricted addons from kicking/promoting/demoting players. So, what the addon now does is compiles a list of names based on a set of rules configured by some filters and then it auto-creates a large macro. It crams as many names as it can into that macro. It then binds that macro to a hot-key (so you don't have to keep it on the bars). Upon pressing the macro it activates all actions, clears the macro and rebuilds a new macro from the names in the que. In theory, you should be able to spam the macro rather rapidly to complete all macro'd actions, like /gremove playerName (and kick 10-15 names at a time, depending on their name length). It should be noted that as of now only the "Kick" recommendation rules are currently implemented.

![GRM Macro Tool](https://i.imgur.com/8OeTMwW.jpg)

* Auto-build and rebuild the macro as needed

* Ability to create a "Safe" ignore list of players you want to be immune to the recommended filters. For example, maybe you want to kick everyone offline > 6 months, but you don't want to kick a specific person ever. Or, maybe some gets deployed 9 months, etc...

* Ability to ignore recommended actions as long as at least 1 toon in an alt grouping is say, active.

* Ability to adjust the macro on the fly and remove names quickly with only temporarily removing them from the que. Rebuilding the macro will re-add the names

* Ability to manage the "Ignore List" easily from within the tool.

* New Checkbox on the mouseover window in the bottome left corner to set a person as ignore.

* /grm tool or kick or promote or demote will all bring up the new Macro Tool (or just click the new button on the roster window)

*I am about 3000+ lines of code into this new tool, and a bit more work to go. This is why this release took so long*

**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* BUG1: Fixed a bug that seemed to affect a few people when trying to sync whilst in combat. Unfortunately there seems to have been a slight change on the backend server where some info is restricted when in combat. This no longer error out.


**VERSION 8.2R1.66 DATE: July 23rd, 2019**

*Needed to rush this out due to a potential bug that could affect only new users, but not all. Sort of an edge case that would prvent some from loading the first time, though it would load properly on their 2nd attempt after relog or reload. Now is should configure properly for all.*

***NEW FEATURES***

*Custom Note Tags for auto added join dates (for join and rejoin)*

* Change the "Joined: XXXX" or "Rejoined: XXXX" date tags to your own custom ones! This is found in the Officer Options tab.

* Global control of these custom tags has also been included using the key "g6^"

* Example: "g6^Joined:^^Rejoined:^^" (though using your own custom tags)

* - You MUST include the "^^" to verify the stop. Max number of characters is 16 per tag.

* - "g6^Joined:^^" - No need to force both, you can force just the Joined.

* - "g6^^^Rejoined:^^" - You can also just force the Rejoined, and ignore the joined (notice there still is the double ^^, but the joined is empty, no text).

* - "g6^Capt'sLog:^^Re-Recruited:^^" - Pure custom, so if a player joins, or rejoins, they date auto added to the officer note will be like "Capt's Log: 23 Jul '19'"

**--------------**
**QUALITY OF LIFE**
**--------------**

* QoL1: Dutch compatibility has been built-in. While it is not yet localized into Dutch, it can now be selected as a language option as we patiently await the translation work (as of now roughly 900 lines to do all. So much work!)

* QoL2: Cleaned up a littl ebit of unnecessary processing in the background that could be optimized a little bit.

**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* BUG1: Fixed another bug that could cause new addon users or new alts to trigger on load - it goes away after a reload - this is sort of an edge case and won't affect everyone.


**VERSION 8.2R1.65 DATE: July 22nd, 2019**

*Minor bug fix - addon would not load for NEW alts or new users of the addon as the LoadSettings was triggering a check on the new channel destination which had not yet been configured to default as of yet. This is now resolved.*


**VERSION 8.2R1.64 DATE: July 22nd, 2019**

***NEW FEATURES***

*Nothing too major. Some large stuff in the pipeline, so this is a minor cleanup patch with a couple Quality of Life improvements, and some added customization.*

* New1: Players now have the ability to choose which channel to send GRM messages to, in the General Options -

* - If you wish, GRM will create the channel for you when you type in a custom name, and if it doesn't exist, it will prompt you for permission to create it.

* - If you end up removing the custom channel GRM will automatically report to the defauly general chat channel again.

* - This chat window setting will not be sync'd between alts and will be character specific.

* QoL1: Italian is fully translated once again! TY @Nihal6#8125 (Discord)

* QoL2: Someone had pointed out that when clicking some custom values, the editbox disappears, though you can still type. This has been around forever and I decided a long time ago I was only ever going to fix it if someone reported it lol. Well, the time has finally come!!! So now, they are properly displaying :D

**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* Bug1: Fixed an issue that caused a Lua error on trying to export the player join dates to the designated note location if they were not there.

* Bug2: When manually clearing a range of lines from the log, the addon will now properly tell you the number of lines cleared, not falsely report only 1 line was cleared.

* Bug3: The font should now properly resize and change on the main log, the audit window, the backup window, and the Advanced Join Date Audit tool - before it would only refresh the size settings on a reload. It should now happen instantly on changing the setting.

* Bug4: There's actually a couple of other bugs I resolved and now, for the life of me, I don't even remember exactly what they were because I was too lazy to document it that night lol.


**VERSION 8.2R1.63 DATE: July 12th, 2019**

**--------------**
**QUALITY OF LIFE**
**--------------**

* QOL1: Audit Window has been rebuilt and now scrolls as a hybridscroll frame

* - In addition, birthdays have been added to the audit window, as well as the ability to set birthdays as "unknown" if you prefer, both in the audit and the player mouseover window.

* - It should be noted that in the GRM Options > UI tab, you can completely disable the birthday info if you choose not to track it in your guild, and the audit window will show that info as disabled and be considered "complete"

* QOL2: GRM window should now properly save its position. This is due to some changes in 8.2 that essentially made "SetUserPlaced" where Warcraft automatically stored the position you dragged the window between sessions. Now, I have to manually store the points as saved data and load it.

* QOL3: Fixed a couple misc. typos I noticed.

**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* BUG1: Fixed and issue with the built-in backup/restore not working properly as it was not loading the guild names properly to match to the database.

* BUG2: Tooltip should no longer permanently resize in some cases, like when opening the audit log.

* BUG3: Fixed a self-resolving sync bug, so that it doesn't happen at all.

* BUG4: Fixed an issue on removing a range of log entries where it would not remove index position 1

* BUG5: Title of the events was wrapping the text and messing allignment in some cases. Fixed

* BUG6: The Communities window will now properly open when in combat when using the MicroToolbarButton, not the hotkey.

* BUG7: Advanced Join Date Audit tool should now always stay properly anchored in place.


**VERSION 8.2R1.62 DATE: June 28th, 2019**

*Further smoothing out the 8.2 transition*

**VERSION 8.2R1.61 DATE: June 26th, 2019**

*Fixed an issue that some people were having with the 1.60 update*

**VERSION 8.2R1.60 DATE: June 26th, 2019**

*UPDATED FOR 8.2 COMPATIBILITY!!! Sorry for the delay. Forgot 8.2 was around the corner.*

**--------------**
**QUALITY OF LIFE**
**--------------**

* QoL1: Cleaned up the in-game backups a bit... they were just too bloated to offer 4 points with 2 auto. The amount of memory being used on just backups was huge, especially since it has limited usability and is not really a true file backup, just a restore point for your guild.

* QoL2: Backups have been cleaned up and are now a hybrid scrollframe

* QoL3: The positioning of the text has been shifted down ever so slightly on the old /guildroster to enable mouseover buttons

*Note - there are a few things I am working on that I did not have time to get to as getting 8.2 compatibility out there was priority, but I know the tooltip scaling is an issue when opening the audit window, and I actually am rectifying this, but don't expect me to have that til probably this weekend as I am rebuilding the Audi window differently and it is a bit of work. This issue does not resolve the problem @Nightdragon#2207 is facing either, which has proven to be far more complex of an issue than I initially realized. This is an issue that won't affect most people, but with his 17 guilds, 1000 members each, and 30,000+ log lines on each of the guilds, it is a massive amount of data and kind of an extreme edge case I am trying to resolve as Lua is reaching some internal limits on how the saved data is stored and how Blizz reimports it (funn enough, Lua 5.2 resolves this automatically, but it is not what Blizz uses, so I kind of have to come up with a "hacky" solution. Eventually...*

* QoL2: Cleaned up the tooltips and blocked actions for more obvious controls on global settings for the join date formatting and adding.

* QoL3: Changing the guildInfo g5^ global settings should now inform you without needing to reload.

* QoL4: Player can disable the GRM mouseover window on the old roster with a checkbox. I will likely include the same feature for the community frame soon, but for now the old roster mouseover can be disabled.

* BUG1: Players should now be able to load the addon without issue. Before it was errneously creating a macro but would crash out if at 18 cap on personal.

* BUG2: The CTRL-CLICK on the event log and the audit window should now properly bring up the player window or the search

* BUG3: Some other misc. things I won't bother reporting since I am out of time and trying to get this update out before I am busy the remainder of the day lol

* GRM keybind Macro will now be properly placed in the general, not the character specific

* QoL1: Player Roster mouseover window now works again on the old Roster accessible with /guildroster or /groster

* QoL2: I have implemented an automatic hot-key macro to access the old roster. Just hit **CTRL-J** on your keyboard to bring it up. Of note, that "J" corresponds to the hotkey to bring up the communities interface, so if you have it set to a different key it will be "CTRL-YOURKEY"

* QoL3: The interface button to click on the bottom right of the default interface to bring up the community frame, you can now hold the CTRL key when clicking it to bring up the old guild roster interface instead.

* QoL4: The new BFA tooltip on the communities roster is now visible on the old guild roster as well.

**--------------**
**QUALITY OF LIFE**

* QoL1: Improved Scrolling controls on both the core log as well as the advanced Join date audit tool

* - Holding CTRL while scrolling = 3x speed

* - Holding CTRL-SHFT while scrolling = 12x speed (this is the core new thing, but many didn't seem to know you can do the others)

* - Holding SHFT will jump you instantly to top or bottom

* QoL2: Tooltip added to the core log over them, rather than wrapping the lines, you now have a tooltip to show the whole thing. **This tooltip can be disabled by using the log tools button on bottom left of log.**

* QoL3: Click to drag anywhere is now less janky on the advanced Join Date audit tool, the event tab, and the banned tab

* QoL4: You need to CTRL-Click the users names on the main audit window now, rather than click. I found myself accidentally opening the player windows when trying to drag the window. No more!


**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* BUG1: Log search should work properly again!

* BUG2: Main log should now scroll properly in all cases, as well as maintain proper sorting and positioning whilst filtering.

* BUG3: Lua error resolved when trying to mousewheel scroll on the Join Date audit tool and the main log's windows when they did not have a full page of items to display.

* BUG4: Main log should no longer go crazy and rebuild copies of all fontstrings if you change the language or font size in the options.

* BUG5: New Changes/Old Log brackets when logging in to changes should be consistent now.

* BUG6: The Log tool to clear lines within a selected range is once again working properly, and even more clean in its implementation, I might add.

* BUG7: Fixed a Lua error where the scan for changes was not working properly on new players - this was reported by many people on discord.

* BUG8: Addon should no longer merge 2 join dates erroneously to designated note. Oops!

* BUG9: Namechange should properly state their former name now, not their class. Another Oops!

* BUG10: Fixed a bug where string name coloring was not properly getting removed on the calendar adds for bdays or anniversaries. This also caused some calendar checks to thinkn it had not been added.

* BUG11: Recruitment window should now trigger their frames properly

*Long time between patches. Lots involved with this one behind the scenes. RL was a bit busy as well. Enjoy!*

***NEW FEATURES***

**Advanced Join Date Audit Tool**

![JD Audit Tool](https://i.imgur.com/nn1ZyXN.jpg)

**Note:** This particular feature developed somewhat spontaneously and was not entirely planned. I had noticed some issues due to incorrect date reporting to the player notes with the auto-tagging, and the resulting sync info being inconsistent. Let me give you an example. If a player joins the guild while you are not online, the event is logged server side in the Blizzard built-in guild event log. This log only contains the last 100 events. Well, in a large guild the log reach > 100 events in less than a day. Thus, the addon has no idea the **REAL** date the player say, joined the guild. As such, the way the addon compensates for this is it sets the join date as the day you logged on. However, on the back end, the addon does not store that date for sync purposes because it is what I would call untrustworthy sync data. What can happen is maybe you had another officer that did get the accurate information and they were logged on and determined the true join date, and thus when you next sync with them, you sync the proper date. However, previously, the addon was still adding the join date to the default not location you had chosen (typically officer). Thus, if the player who has the accurate sync information logged the event, but did not have the setting enabled to add the join date note, but you did, you now added the incorrect date to the note, whilst you ended up syncing the proper date. You now have mismatched dates, often by only a single day.

The goal of this tool was to be able to easily guild-wide rectify this. However, I built it in a way to go over it more carefully, with the ability to modify a single player, multiple players with the Shift-key selection, or the entire guild. I ended up adding some additional features as well that can be useful tools for people that wish to import their join dates from the notes as well. Of note, THIS WAS NOT SIMPLE work. Just this tool was > 2000 lines of code, not that the number really matters, just as a representation of the effort put into such a niche tool makes little sense beyond my own amusement. Believe me, building in parsing compatibility for 18 different note formats was a bit of a pain, but really, I tried to build this with the easiest and simplest user experience that could be had. I also got distracted and used this as my template to build my first custom hybrid scroll frame. You'll notice how smooth it is in scrolling

**JD AUDIT TOOL FEATURES**

* Automatically mass fix GRM save dates by using parsed notes. It will fully scan the public, officer, and custom notes and you have the option to either import those dates to GRM, or the other way around, export the GRM saved dates and fix the notes.

* This maintenance on the join dates can be done guild wide or it can be done with a custom selection of names. Just click the names you wish to modify and it will highlight them. Shift-click to select all names between 2. I recommend being careful with this and doing a sample selection first before feeling more comfortable with the tool.

* Cleanup all notes so that the join date is ONLY in the default settings location. This tool will inform you not only about date mismatches, but if you have the join date listed in multiple notes and it will give you the ability to purge the date from the other notes automatically whilst setting/keeping the join date only in the proper default note location

* Ability to mass export all the join dates to the default note as well.

* Ability to import all join dates from the note into GRM. This supports 18 different note formats (including all 15 optional formats in GRM), as well as the Joined or Rejoined headers.

* Be aware, to save on the complexity of the addon and the bloat, this will only successfully parse the dates if they are listed at the beginning of a note. Exameple "Joined: 05 Aug '18" or "05 Aug '18" will be detected, but "John's friend - "05 Aug '18" will not be parsed properly. While this one example is easy to support, the fact that I decided to build parsing support for, so far, 18 different date formats was a lot of tedious work and to then scan for the start point has so much variability to all of them that I decided to save myself the hassle and just make it so the addon will only detect dates if at beginning of note. This can easily be modified by juse changing the position of your note.

* If there is a date format you wish me to include support for I am willing to consider it. I have considered possibly supporting "custom" headers, like "Joined" or "Rejoined" and "CustomTag" but I did not build that yet.

* Tooltip helpers are added for this tool to help you find entries in the log, bring up their player window and so on.

* The link to it is found on on the audit page, at the bottom of the join date column.

*Final Note on the Advanced JD Audit Tool - Use with caution. It mass modifies player notes. That cannot be undone since they store server side.*

**--------------**
**QUALITY OF LIFE**
**--------------**

* QOL1: HYBRID SCROLL FRAMES!!! As a lot of people know, this is the superior way to truly do scroll frames. I suppose I never had imagined scrolling frames getting so absurdly large, not thinking long term, but when
@Xulu#1278 (discord) got on my case about them and when @Nightdragon#2207 (discord) mentioned how he has like 30,000 logged event entries in a single guild, of a 17 guild community, and with Xulu expressing his passion for it I finally relented. I basically didn't want to bother with it for various reasons, but one is I wanted to build a template system to make it more reusable. I ended up doing just that with the new JD Audit tool and I was able to reuse the template, for the most part, for the core log. This is not entirely true as the core log is a bit more complex due to the variety of different string heigts due to wrapping and multi-lines so I had to modify it slightly.

* QOL2: MORE SLASH COMMANDS! They are now expanded to support all GRM window tabs. Example */grm users* or */grm events* or /grm options (or opt) are all supported and will bring them up with a simple slash command. If it sounds right, it probably works. Please feel free to recommend additional slash commands. They are quite simple to implement and I am a believer of the command line.

* QoL3: Addon no longer auto-adds join dates if it is not found in the event log, to improve accuracy.

* QoL4: The addon will now attempt to add the join date to the note properly, if enabled, even if something is already there. Before it just ignored adding the note. Now, it will ensure it's not already there, then merge the existing note with the date, and if it fits, it will join them and add it.

* QoL5: NEW GLOBAL SETTING! Players can now add a +/- sign to the end of g5^X to force global use of the "Joined:" and "Rejoined:" headers. Example "g5^1+" means that the default join date will be added to the officer note like "Joined: 06 Jun '19" or "g5^1-" will just be "06 Jun '19" - forcing consistency among all officers.

* QoL6: Lots of code cleanup on the backend in some places I hadn't touched since the first days of coding lol.

* QoL7: GRM Core window is now draggable no matter where you click, on all tabs (it didn't work on the log and the audit window, you had to click near top bar previously)

* QoL8: A more clear notification is given if the player's own rank changes, thus triggering a sync check, if permissions open up to sync with someone else new data. The triggered sync should only occur when the addon user's own rank has moved up. The addon will inform you *why* it is triggering this. Before it just did it.

* QoL9: The "(main)" on the side alt grouping details window is now properly *below* the main, not above, keeping position consistent with the alt listings.

* QoL10: Player should no longer erroneously get "(NG)" tag on the "(player) has logged in" system message in chat after shortly logging in. This would occur due to the GRM database not being fully loaded yet, but the System message listener already being initialized. Now it waits to modify the incoming system messages in the chat window with the tags until GRM is fully loaded and ready in the background.

* QoL11: The FrameStrate of the core GRM frame is now set to MEDIUM, to reflect most frames in WOW so you can click other flames and have them come to the front without it permanently being set on top.

**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* BUG1: Fixed an issue that seems to affect a small % of the community on previous large update preventing them from fully updating properly.

* BUG2: Fixed an issue with tooltip scaling carrying over to non-addon tooltips. If GRM didn't auto-show on logon, and you selected the roster, typed /GRM the tooltip size would shrink small. Fixed!

* BUG3: Fixed an issue that could cause sync to fail (line 2313 error a few had reported).

* BUG4: Fixed an issue that could cause some reporting to never occor to the log in regars to a player rejoining the guild

* BUG5: Fixed an issue where class coloring was not being implemented properly on the promotion announcement entries of someone who just joined the guild and were promoted since before your last login.

* BUG6: Fixed some other minor misc. bugs, both cosmetic and on the back end I won't bore evryone with as they were likely not too noticeable.

* BUG7: Fixed an issue that could cause a clubID error if it never loaded properly when someone joins the guild.

* BUG8: Fixed an issue where leap year dates on non-leap years (Feb 29th) would be instead listed at Feb 1st, when they should have been listed at March 1st.


**VERSION 8.1.5R1.55 DATE: April 19th, 2019**

**VERSION 8.1.5R1.54 DATE: April 18th, 2019**

*Minor patch update that could prevent some player's addon from loading the database properly and updating. This would only affect few people, but needed to be addressed as I didn't see the error until a report*


**VERSION 8.1.5R1.53 DATE: April 17th, 2019**

*Minor efficiency update on the database that seemed to stall on some people's PCs. Should complete a little less resource intensive now*


**VERSION 8.1.5R1.52 DATE: April 17th, 2019**

* QoL1: Adding some infrastructur for adding in custom easter eggs I wish to add

* BUG1: Fixed an issue that could cause sync to error out if at the tail end of a sync when triggered again

* BUG2: Some misc. issues with the new sync process have been corrected

* BUG3: Fixed an issue that led to some repeated join date spreading, and also cleaned up the repeats.


**VERSION 8.1.5R1.51 DATE: April 12th, 2019**

* Fixed 2 misc. bugs related to previous patch that were quickly reported :D

**VERSION 8.1.5R1.50 DATE: April 12th, 2019**

*NOTE: One of the reasons I was hesitant to go down the rabbit hole that was this patch is I just knew it was going to take a lot of effort to put out, so I avoided focusing on some things to focus on others. It was something I had always wanted to revisit, and while the updates are not fully 100% implemented in all aspects, and while there is some work still to do, we are at a significantly improved position. The delay with this patch is because I got lured into finally getting it over with, got seduced by how much easier the implementation seemed at first, then once I was past the point of no return found about 50 tentacles of the code all over the pladce that I had to deal with to get it working consistently and flawlessly.*

***NEW FEATURES***

***SYNC SYSTEM OVERHAUL***

* Sync system has been significantly updated and in some places, completely rewritten. The entire pre-check algorithm has been rebuilt and some of the sharing methods are far more efficient now. This will become obvious very quickly. Thanks @Xulu#1278 for some suggestions here.

* Theoretically, this rewrite should be the final nail in the coffin to the occasional disconnect bug that has plagued some people inconsistently.

* The addon will now report *what* information was sync'd. I think I will expand this further, but it is better than "x items updated"

* The addon now states if a sync is even necessary or not and no longer syncs without it being necessary. Be aware, while it may state "No Updates" on your end, the person you sync'd with received some info from you, or else no sync would have occurred.

* Of note, if alt data needs to be shared, while still significantly improved, this is a bit more tedious an implementation and you may find that the other areas that sync ligning fast, in a matter of 2 or 3 seconds, maye find the alt system taking just a tiny bit longer. This will be rectified further probably in the next update.

**--------------**
**QUALITY OF LIFE**
**--------------**

* QoL1: "g1^" global setting is returning in modified form! Use it to control which timestamp format is universally used in the guild. Add "g1^1" to the guildInfo, anywhere, to force all players. Example g1^1 = default. or g1^15 = the last selection in the timestamp format dropdown window.

* QoL2: Sort the ban list by clicking on the headers

* QoL3: Sort the alt details window (the shift-click alt window) by clicking the column headers as well

* QoL4: Addon settings are now stored automatically and sync'd after every manually change of the settings rather than only on closing the window, which could create problems if you modify settings and logoff without closing GRM window which used to be the trigger.

* QoL5: The Add Ban window no longer auto-hides if you swap windows to look at say, the Log.

* QoL6: The ban list should now re-check the GUID returns more consistently when looking at it to determine if the player has left the server

* QoL7: Patch code is in the process of being re-written, with initial foundation set and this major patch implementing the new tools. This is to prevent the code-bloat occurring on the patches now that many fixes have come and gone.

* QoL8: Rebuilt some aspects of the database to be more consistently alligned between the 2 clients.

**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

*Note - Many many bug fixes, so I will just report them in no particular of what was a bigger issue.

* Bug1: Fixed an issue that seems to have popped up in 8.1.5 in relation to some calendar bug reporting on some addons.

* Bug2: Fixed an issue that allowed players using special characters to type more than the 75 character limit in the ban note.

* Bug3: Fixed an issue with the ban reasons that allowed player to overshoot the char count limit and slimmed the reasons that did.

* Bug4: Fixed an issue where a returning player's join/promo dates could overwrite other's in a sync, which is not noticeable for players that login frequently, but let's say a player takes 6 months off the game, comes back, another guildie has rejoined since then. This could occur for people who had not logged on in a very long time with GRM outdated data.

* Bug5: Birthdates should now properly sync in all cases. Found an issue here that could prevent it from occurring. This includes when you remove a birthdate, for conformity.

* Bug6: Cleans up error related to mass copying of birthdate across the guild. This cleans that error up.

* Bug7: New toons and alts of yours that join the guild should no longer write-over addon options settings with defaults and should properly sync to the already existing settings now.

* Bug8: Fixed an issue where sync would re-trigger 1 more time than as necessary on a new build.

* Bug9: Fixed major issue with syncing alts properly that was also not obvious but could end up in some alts taking multiple syncs to get tagged properly rather than on first time.

* Bug10: Fixed an isse that could occur with players returning to the guild that possibly could cause the addon to crash due to a previous bug when they left so it never recorded the date they left. The addon cannot recover that info, but it will now at least say "Date Left: Unknown" in its place, when before it would Lua error out and crash. This may have gone unnoticed as it would not break the addon completely so you'd only see it with Lua error reporting tools.

* Bug11: Fixed an issue that could prevent custom notes from sync properly on the first attempt, thus often in a subsquent sync you will see it say it was updated, but it didn't happen initially. It should now be consistent.

* Bug12: Fixed a major database flaw that could be restored using old old backups. Surprised this one was never found but I found it as I was creating some integrity tests of the database. It would only potentially affect you if you had a very old back as my update forgot to account for the backup data.

* Bug13: Fixed an issue if clicking the minimap early and it has not initialized the database fully yet.

* Bug14: Made it so the addon sync process would not trigger until the exact moment the database updates have been fully processes and the players that left and joining players have all been analyzed and updated. This is only necessary for mega guilds that kick hundreds at a time.

* Bug15: Fixed double copying of dates to the custom note that could occur if multiple officers online at same time

* Bug16: Fixed several other misc. Lua errors that I don't think are necessary to report here.


**VERSION 8.1.5R1.45 DATE: March 16th, 2019**

*A felt a bit off my groove for a couple of weeks. Things feel a bit better now. This focused almost solely on the reported issues when I was gone, as well as some other misc. things that came as a result of those distractions.*

**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* BUG1: Fixed a bug that could occur if still processing people that are no longer in the guild whilst sync triggers

* BUG2: Fixed an issue that could cause bans to not sync properly due to a nil value that should have been an empty string. Source eliminated, cleanup fixed. This bug likely affected a lot of people that utilized the ban list frequently

* BUG3: Fixed a slight UI bug when syncing some live join date changes.

* BUG4: Fixed some issues with regards to alt lists having doubles do to some super weird edge case circumstance that was kind of fun to diagnose and solve

* BUG5: Fixed an issue that resolves a copy bug when a player server transfers and the server shows a temporary double copy of them on occasion. Seems rare, but reported 2 times now happening.

* BUG6: Added potential fix during the sync process where when it starts syncing ban list (maybe half way through the process), a player may disconnect due to breaking throttling limits. If this doesn't resolve it then it is some other part of sync process causing it and I will need to hands on it with people.


**VERSION 8.1.0R1.44 DATE: February 22nd, 2019**

*BUG1: The log is NOW properly fixed... I had everything working but commented out the fix for just this one issue. Oops!

*Even MORE Ban feature improvements!*

* QOL1: Adding a ban, name autocomplete. As you type, a selection of name matches will now be given as suggested selections. They will pool both the current and former guildies names together for selection. Just start typing to match!

* QoL2: Added a word count as you type in the "Reason for the ban" portion, so you know how many characters you have to use.

* QOL3: The addon will now tell you when adding someone to the ban list if it is still possible to pull their data from the server, otherwise they will be flagged with "Unable to identify."

* QOL4: "Unable to Identify" flags added to ban roster for players who may no longer be on the server. This will allow you to cleanup your ban lists a little.

* QOL5: The addon will now collect any missing GUID data tags from players that left the guild pre-8.0, before data was readily available. I have a somewhat tricky way I collect GUIDs from players who are offline. This also helps me determine if the player still exists.

* QOL6: If adding a ban of a player who left the guild before GRM was installed, or maybe was never even in the guild, it will collect their metadata as much as possible from the server and build a profile behind the scenes. The ban system will also auto-correct any mistakes you make, such as class selection, when creating the ban.

* QOL7: The addon will now tell you when adding someone to the ban list if it is still possible to pull their data from the server

* QOL8: Lots of behind the scenes details. Hard to explain, but the process is better.

**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* BUG1: Fixed a major issue that could cause search to not work due to finding nil values in the log. This was a HUGE potential bug that is now quashed and cleaned up. Hard to understate this.

* BUG2: Search should now work properly in all instances when using apostrophes in the search box.

* BUG3: Fixed an error that could occur when a player rejoined, it was trying to report a nil line. You may have noticed the lack of reporting of rejoins the last 2 weeks.

* BUG4: Sync throttle was modified slightly to alleviate growing concerns about disconnects that seem to have recently popped up after long being quashed. I confirmed the bulk sync feature was nerf'd by Blizz as well in that short time window. This caused me to have to make some slight changes and possibly had some ripple effects. We'll see how it goes but I suspect things will be better now.

* BUG5: The alt details window should now properly reset to the top of the list when showing when clicking on each player's alt lists from the Calendar invite lists.

* BUG6: Minor visual bug on the word count cap to send messages to players that join guild as well as the backspace not registering count changes on guild recruitment custom message character count.

* BUG7: Fixed an issue where the ban list drop-down selection of classes would not re-localize when changing languages.

* BUG8: Noticed a small edge case that could cause a player to be left on friends list evne on cleanup when it was supposed to be a quick add > scan > remove only.


**VERSION 8.1.0R1.42 DATE: February 6th, 2019**

***NOTE*** *Nothing too new here, just some minor bug fixes for some minor inconveniences as I work on a few other major things in the background. Wanted to at least get this out there!*

**--------------**
**QUALITY OF LIFE**
**--------------**

* QOL1: French translation fully updated - TY @Enkh and Italian is like 99% complete. TY @Nihal6

* QOL2: The extra alt details window that can popout on the side with a shift-click will no longer go off screen if your game resolution is not wide enough, or scale is high. It will no overlap on the left. This is a rough stop-gap as I am actually building a new "snapping" and draggable window interface that will make it easier to place the frames around the window. We'll see what happens, but now this is a useful feature for those whose frame went off screen

* QOL3: The tooltip of the community/guild frame should no longer trigger through other frames and will now only show if there are no other windows on top of it.

* QOL4: When closing the side window to select how you want to sync all join dates, it no longer closes ALL windows, forcing you to reopen mouseover frame.

* QOL5: Noticed the Rejoins and rejoin bans were reporting in the log on separate log entry lines. This is now all on one line properly, which makes more sense. This only affects new log entries, not retroactive ones, for now.

* QOL6: Fixed some of the coloring as well to be more consistent with what they are doing.

* QOL7: Custom notes as "additional notes" now show properly without being a jumped mess of words when a player rejoins the guild.

**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* BUG1: Promotion/demotion changes were not always reporting to the log properly if the player hadn't logged on since you last checked.This was a simple modification I did last update I forgot to remove.

* BUG2: Promotion date was still saying "Unknown" in cases where it should not have been on player mouseover. This has been automatically corrected.

* BUG3: Inactive Returns were previously not being removed from the guild when filtered to just them, and using line number X through Y selection removal tool. This is now fixed.

* BUG4: Disabling or Enabling the reporting of when a player levels, to the log, is now working properly.

* BUG5: The timestamp formatting for Promotion/demotion log entries should now properly match the selected format of your choosing.

* BUG6: Fixed a bug where it would report a player's guild anniversary as "0 years" away on the same day they joined the guild. oops :D

* BUG7: Fixed a Lua error that could occur when a player first joins a guild whilst they had GRM installed and had just left a previous guild.

* BUG8: Fixed Lua error that could occur when setting a player's birthdate and syncing the info live to another currently online player. The data sync'd but the name didn't carry over properly for log msg in some cases.

* BUG9: Fixed an error where if you changed the birthdate of the player by adding them to an alt grouping, which auto-changed the bday to the "main," and it was not removing the old event date from the add to calendar window automatically like it should have


**VERSION 8.1.0R1.41 DATE: January 28th, 2019**

**NOTE!*** *Going down the list. It's funny... it always seems like I am taking 2 steps forward and 1 back in thbe progress. I am continually moving forward, but there's always something to distract me. The good thing is the side distractions, requests, bug fixes are all taking us step by step to a better addon.*

***NEW FEATURES***

* The player can now auto-focus the search box everytime the Log is opened, if they so choose. This is turned OFF by default. It skips the first time if set to load on logon.

* French Translation is complete (aside from my 1.41 updates which he did not have access to yet)! Thank @Enkh!!! Seriously, so much work

**--------------**
**QUALITY OF LIFE**
**--------------**

* QOL1: Due to some challenges in building metadata profiles of people who have left the guild, in the back and forth callbacks, delays in receiving info, a ban list could take 2 syncs. One, to sync most data, but if bans existed of players not in the guild, the other person who maybe was not in the guild when those profiles existed needs to create metadata profiles for them. this requires additional talk, and considering the delay, this could interrupt sync protocols. As such, after building the metadata profiles a subsequent sync would need to be done to complete the build for all ban list data to update. Now, the addon will determine the number of metadata profiles created of previous guildies, build them, then re-trigger a call, if necessary, for info, all automatically.

* QOL2: Italian translation has been updated and is current again (aside from 1.41 updates no one had yet). Ty @Nihal6

* QOL3: Noticed some inconsistencies in the Ban log reporting messages from sync vs live which should now use the same messages on both sides of the addon to addon comms.

* QOL4: The ban list log entries moving forward will now properly report on a single line. Previously they had the Ban info and the Reason as separate entries into the log. This is fixed now.

* QOL5: If a player is no longer in the guild, they are removed from any upcoming events que.

* QOL6: Alt details now sorts by default the time since Last Online, rather than alphabetically (with main still at the top) -- interestingly, I wrote some code here to sort levels and ranks, but I didn't have time to build front end interface. I need ot think of how I want to implement it in a nice QoL way. Until then, default sorting by last online now!

* QOL7: Extra alt Details frame now closes alone with the ESC key rather than both windows.

* QOL8: The addon now states who the player's Main was when they are removed or leave the guild - this is only half-implemented. It seems I am not fully tracking alt/main data as good as I should once they leave the guild when I should store a snapshot of it at the time they are kicked or leave. Instead it is an unreliable tool. I will need to build the tools for this to expand on the feature. Until then, you have this small thing.

**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* BUG1: Fixed a major bug with the sync system not functioning properly and causing a lua error on some received data. The root cause was squashed and was actually quite a bit more complicated than I anticipated. This is the bug most were getting. The rabbit hole was deep lol

* BUG2: All words should properly localize now when swapping languages on the new Level Options changes.

* BUG3: Fixed a minor bug with the ban list sync system that might occur in certain circumstances. The root cause of this was also found and squashed.

* BUG4: Fixed Lua error that could occur if hitting enter on the Level filter entry when no level is selected.

**VERSION 8.1.0R1.40 DATE: January 21st, 2019**

*Small typo fix on something was meant to be deleted*

**VERSION 8.1.0R1.39 DATE: January 21st, 2019** (Happy MLK Day to the USA users!)

***NOTE!*** - *I am currently in the process of just going down my to-do list, knocking out many things that were on the back burner. I am also trying to implement simple requests as they come as well as some bug fixing as priority as they come as well. As the addon grows, the complexity grows as well in adding features because there's just more and more tentacles to consider. For example, this update I managed to include the implementation of "who" banned a player, but this required a significant amount of work as the sync algorithm for the ban system, to maximize efficiency in packing in those 255 character size comm messages, as well as obeying throttle rules, is rather complex, and then to throw in a new piece of info into the mix, to carry over through several different channels not only required me to modify it slightly, I had to then add new parsing mechanisms on the other end because previously it assumed it was the end of the string, now I had to rewrite it to see this as the end of it. I had to expand array sizes, I had to build an entire front end feature to consider this. My point is that it seems "simple" for some features, like adding something as simple as the name of the player that originally set the ban on another, which in retrospect I probably should have originally included, but it took me a solid dozen hours+ of coding work just for this one simple feature, and testing to make sure it was solid. The good thing is this patch, since I dove into the ban system, sad that Blizzard didn't implement their own banning system in 8.1, I basically went all out in it too with some long overdue work on it. As a hobby project this is fun, but I do only have so many free hours in the day. I just figured I would let you guys know why maybe some things seem so simple but they actually take me a bit of time*

***NEW FEATURES***

* FEATURE1: The person who first added the ban will now be noted on mouseover of each of the bans. This cannot be retroactive, so it will say "unknown" for all existing bans. If you EDIT the ban and save it, your name will overwrite the person that set the ban as the most recent person to modify it is the one that is important.

* FEATURE2: More refined level filter options! Ability to set it to set milestones, and you can refine to which expansion cap milestones only if you want. Of note, if you have it set to announce when they hit say, 60, and you login and they went from 55 to 65, it will say in the log that they hit their 60 milestone, and are now currently at 65. It will only announce their highest milestone.

**--------------**
**QUALITY OF LIFE**
**--------------**

* QOL1: Player can now choose to set the log to only report an inactive return if ALL alts in that grouping are inactive. If at least one is active it won't report.

* QOL2: Rewrote the scannign algorithm to be about 95% more efficient. Yes, that is correct. Some major improvements as I hadn't revisited it in quite some time and it got me rethinking some efficiency angles and doing unnecessary work if they hadn't logged on since last check.

* QOL3: If there are currently people banned that are still in the guild, the guild tab will show a count as well as a tooltip warning to give you a heads up, in case you missed the log entry.

* QOL4: On the General Options - tooltip scale will actually adjust in size with the slider now so you can easily see.

* QOL5: Removing a ban from a player the text should now properly be class color coded of the player's names.

* QOL6: More obvious steps in adding or editing a ban

**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* BUG1: BAN LIST should now properly sync in all cases!

* BUG1: One caveat, in some edge cases it might take 2 syncs to build it all because if it is a new guildie using GRM, they have to create metadata profiles from scratch for players they may have never encountered and are no longer in the guild, so what happens is they first create a blank profile, then they tell the person sending the ban information that they do not have a profile of the player yet so the player then forwards the known metadata on to build the profile properly and THEN and only then can a proper ban be established. The problem is these back and forth comms are not instant, and for me to avoid things like latency bugs, almost like a TCP protocol where you wait for a callback, rather than UDP, then it takes some seconds. Due to my lack of desire to create separate trees for qued up ban data to que up these lists, if the callback isn't fast enough it just builds the profiles without acknowledging the given ban data yet, though the subsequent sync should then work. This only applies to people wwho just installed GRM in your guild, for the most part.

* BUG2: Ban List should now properly sync ban list edits (this also was previously inconsistent)

* BUG3: Ban List should now properly sync the "ban all alts" option as well when this is chose LIVE with 2 people online at the same time. Before it seems it would sync the one name, so the player setting the ban would ban all the alts properly, but the sync'd guildie would only receive a message to ban just the one intial toon, not the alts

* BUG4: Ban List should now properly merge if a person had some bans but were too low rank and then brought up to a higher ban sync ok rank.

* BUG5: Fixed an issue that can cause some translation spam when editing a ban the first time after logging in telling you player's class was wrong as well.

* BUG6: Fixed a Lua error issue that could occur when clicking minimap too soon after login. This apparently was only partially resolved before. It wasn't major, as it didn't break anything, just error'd before finished configuring.


**VERSION 8.1.0R1.38 DATE: January 9th, 2019**

**--------------**
**QUALITY OF LIFE**
**--------------**

* QOL1: All nearly 800 lines of translation work for ITALIAN is completed. TY @Nihal6
* QOL2: GRM sync message will be more obvious if /grm sync slash command failed to kickstart sync process properly

**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* BUG1: Fixed a bug that will only affect people who have never used the addon before from dumb mistake I made in 1.37 update!

**VERSION 8.1.0R1.37 DATE: January 6th, 2019**

***NEW FEATURES***

*"CHANGES" and "Old Log" headers will now be visible the first time you view the log on logging in to make it more obvious the extent of changes since last login.

**--------------**
**QUALITY OF LIFE**
**--------------**

* QOL1: g8^ purge functionality removed from the addon. After careful consideration, it just seems like too much power for guild leader to control other's data and I hate it exists now. So, removing.

* QOL2: GRM sync message will be more obvious if /grm sync slash command failed to kickstart sync process properly

**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* BUG1: Fixed an issue causing a Lua error in syncing the custom note, as well as an issue with sync disconnects in relation to this bug.

* BUG2: Fixed an issue that could cause the ctrl-shift-click of the log to remove the incorrect entry, though it was the same message (like X promoted to Y rank)- This is very edge case and likely no one even noticed lol


**VERSION 8.1.0R1.36 DATE: January 3rd, 2019**

*Forgot to add English Localizations to all languages, so if you used any language but English you likely got spammed with missing key errors*

**--------------**
**QUALITY OF LIFE**
**--------------**

* QOL1: Added the online / totalMember count to the roster tab. For some reason Blizz makes this only visible on the chat window. I find it useful on roster tab too.

**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* BUG1: Fixed a bug that seemed to be related to the new year and would have only popped up on Jan 1st and on. It likely would have stopped yuour addon from picking up new changes as it would break the scan until then.

* BUG2: Fixed an issue with large custom notes, as they were not splitting and sending backend comms properly if too large. The very large comms should now properly sync

* BUG3: Events were being announced on the calendar as dungeon events due to a change in the calendar in 8.0 that I didn't notice til now. They should now properly announce as a "OTHER" event for birthdays and anniversaries.

* BUG4: Resolved an issue that could make the main tagging not work properly if a person opens the calendar before the addon is fully loaded behind the scenes. Opening the calendar is fine, it just had an out of order check that should have been done sooner.


**VERSION 8.1.0R1.35 DATE: December 31st 2018**

*Minor update. Mostly some bug fixes. 1 new global configuration using guildInfo

**--------------**
**QUALITY OF LIFE**
**--------------**

* QOL1: New Global Setting! - g5^X can be added to the guild info to designate the location of the Join dates. g5^1 = officer note, 2 = public, 3 = custom

**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* BUG1: Fixed a bug that could allow the guild leader to purge their own data on accident using the g8+ tag! Oops!

* BUG2: Fixed a localization bug that would spam you about not knowing the key for a birthday translation.

* BUG3: Fixed a bug that could allow in some cases multiple copies of smae name to be added to alt list if spammed from a sync error (older version bug spaming backend comms to new version)

* BUG4: In relation to the previous bug, Cleans up broken alt lists that were broken from an older patch (some may have never noticed some groupings were broken)

* BUG5: Fixed a bug that could cause Lua error shortly after logging in if system message triggers, like "Player has gone offline" before it is configured properly.

* BUG6: Ban list "guild info" configuration of the global settings allowed the player to contradict allowed settings, with ban list restriction more loose than global.

* BUG7: Fixed an issue where the event announcing could be set to > 28 days (up to 98 days in advance). I wrote it to only scan 1 month in advance, not more, and thus to keep it clean I default it to 28 days in advnce as max announcement. This setting defaults to 14, but if you had it < 28, it will be reset down to max 28 and will no longer be editable a greater length of time than 4 weeks in advance.


**VERSION 8.1.0R1.34 DATE: December 16th 2018**

*Moderate update. Some bug fixes. Some bugs would be game-breaking for some players, and would not affect others. Thus, this needed to be pushed out asap!. A few other tweaks as well*

**--------------**
**QUALITY OF LIFE**
**--------------**

* QOL1: Alt names listed as the main should not be shrunk tiny anymore.

* QOL2: Added tooltip message that you can "Right click to edit" the dates...

**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* BUG1: Fixed an issue that can prevent alt list from showing.

* BUG2: If more than 10 names were on the event calendar a Lua error could occur selecting wrong player info.

* BUG3: Accidentally included a spam message in the guild sync spam on birthday updates being shared.

* BUG4: Not all upcoming events were being announced if they were the next month (particularly from December to January). This is fixed. You may get a bunch of new announcements to report to the calendar.

* BUG5: Blizzard made some backend changes to the calendar, so I had to adjust the way it checked if events were already added. If it is already posted on the calendar it will not appear on your events list with a suggestion to add it to the calendar needlessly. Thus, if one player or officer in the guild adds it to the calendar, then all other players will have the option removed as it will no longer be necessary to add it. You will still have a log announcement of it and it should appear in the guild chat community stream the first time you look at it after it has been added.


**VERSION 8.0.1R1.33 DATE: December 15th 2018**

*NOTE! The !note feature has been removed. One, it was mostly redundant, since Blizzard introduced the ability for people to edit their own notes only. But two, in 8.1 Blizz broke it anyway and it can no longer be used. Blizz "protected" all chat streams now, from guilds and communities, since they are now stored. Apparently this was in an effort to prevent addon developers from attempting to use custom channels as exotic database storage (which I was funny enough, considering lol). The downside is it KILLS the feature.*

***NEW FEATURES***

**BIRTHDAYS**

* *That's right! You can now input players birthdays. They are linked to the alt grouping. I have made this as simple as possible and automatic to use. Here are some details:*

* 1) Completely optional. You can disable this in the settings. Both the ability to store birthdays as well as even see it in the options are configurable.

* 2) The date is linked to the alt grouping as it is assumed that the birthday will be the same for all players in the grouping as it is based on RL birthdays

* 3) This linking will be automatic. If an alt does not have a birthday set, but is added to a grouping of alts that does, then I will auto-set the birthday. All the nuances of this are extremely tedious to iron out to automate this all. Example, what if two toons not grouped have different dates set, but you try to add one to the other, which date takes priorty? Well, I look at if one is listed as main. Well, what if neither are. What if both are? What if one player is part of a group of alts, with no one listed as main, and no birthday, but then you add one player who is a main and already has a date? Does it override all the others? What if not a main, but it has a date? What if the large grouping has a date set, but the main does not? You can begin to see how there can be a large divere group of things to consider. I ironed out every last one to automate this for the smartest efficiency.

* 4) It only stores the day and the month. I avoid allowing the addon users to ask for the year. I do this on purpose. Some people don't feel comfortable giving their age. Not that it is likely a big deal for 95% of the community, but this spares you leaders the awkwardness of bothering with asking. It is not necessary anyway, just the day and the month is important.

* 5) These birthday events will auto-trigger to be added to the calendar as they approach as well. I HIGHLY recommend having the box checked to only announce the "mains"

* 6) Data is completely syncable and sharable. This also takes advantage of a new algorithm I am implementeing a little here and there for sync efficiency. It takes a while so one thing at a time. It is speedy, but is still extra, new data.

**GUILD REP**

* *Yup! For some reason it is hard to determine player's guild rep now without opening the /groster old window. It will now be visible and properly colored based on rank in the top right for each player. It is fully localized*

* 1) This also is completely optional, and you can disable it in the new UI panel of the options.

**--------------**
**QUALITY OF LIFE**
**--------------**

* QoL1: While not necessarily obvious to the user, I place this as number 1 because of the extensive backend cleanup on the process of scanning the database for events to announce to be added to calendar. I also converted the database from the use of strings in many areas to ints, thus removing the need of any string parsing when checking events. This is enormously more efficient now.

* QoL2: Cleaned up a bit of the Alt alignment, some auto controlling the font size to fit, even if a player bumps font size to 125% (in some fonts this may make the "main" alt seem a bit small.

* QoL3: A bit cleaner backend method on detecting player rank permissions in chat. The older method was a bit tedious, but it was necessary after the odd changes in patch 7.3. Well, 8.1 reverted a few of those and they are actually easier to use now and better than ever before! Sometimes they get things right!

* QoL4: Custom note sync rank filter tooltip is more obvious now what it is and how it is unique for that toon only.

* QoL5: ESC key used a bit more logically and cleanly when jumping through frames you had open.

**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* BUG1: Fixed an issue that could cause disconnects in some circumstances during a sync. I am not certain this fixes ALL issues for all players, but this definitely will resolve it for many that possibly had issues.

* BUG2: Tightened the sync process a bit further as well to prevent a bulk sync that overlaps or I should say, comes to close to the server throttle cutoff. This will likely help some people who had disconnects.

* BUG3: Sync disconnect fix 3! Additional protections added to people with low FPS when first logging in to prevent a bulk sync, or throttle down to match FPS a bit (interestingly FPS does affect throttle rate).

* BUG4: Fixed an issue that can cause a protection error when trying to mass invite people from the guild recruitment window with GuildInvite lua script. Blizzard seems to have protected it so it cannot be looped, it can only run once per click without tainting. As such I have implemented the macro strategy, where I create a premade macro with all the /ginvite (name) on each line, and with a simple hot-key press it mass invites, if you wish.

* BUG5: Fixed a rejoin bug issue where if a player quits the guild, deletes a toon, makes a new toon with the same name, it counts it as a rejoin. It should now properly only rely on GUID data, not name comparisons. Oops!

* BUG6: Found some issues that could cause problems for people whose database had been upgraded/converted after a long time of not updating the addon, and then they used the backup recoverty tool.

* Bug7: Fixed some bugs around updating from VERY old versions of the addon.

* Bug8: Fixed an issue where the "Anniversary!" was not translating properly in some circumstances on non-English versions of the addon.

* Bug9: Fixed an issue that good mingle alt groups incorrectly when adding one from two groups listed with a main, from a toon that was not a main in the grouping.

* Bug10: Addon should no longer randomly announce "XXX player is already listed as an alt" erroneously.

* Bug11: Fixed an issue with ban list syncing. - It only addresses one issue, however, this is still bugged and doesn't always sync the ban lists properly.



**VERSION 8.0.1R1.32 DATE: November 22nd 2018**

*Note! There are some big changes in the works in a couple of areas, this is taking me a bit of time, but it is in regards to the core log. I've decided to implement a hybridscrollframe and also make the log more dynamic, less static. This has a lot of tentacles in the code to deal with so it is taking me a while. In the meantime I pushed out a rather critical update for a major disconnect bug and some minor features*

**--------------**
**QUALITY OF LIFE**
**--------------**

* QoL1: Functionality has been expanded in the ability to FORCE and unify settings. The player can now force set the sync rank for ban lists and custom notes as well.

* QoL2: Freeing up character space in the officer note, the Guild Info will now house the leader control tags to force settings. Example, g2^9 is not going to be placed into the guild info tab to work.

* QoL2: The addon will auto copy over your existing tags when you first login and configure this automatically for you.

* QoL3: The +GRM1 has been normalized to g1^+. If you used GRM1, then the addon will auto-convert the format, as well as copy it to the proper Guild Info tab.

* QoL4: Some formatting fixed that could occur in some cases with the alt list making them appear unalligned.

**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* Bug1: Major disconnect bug has been fixed that could occur if a player reloads and tries to auto-sync, with certain addons installed. This compatibility was hard to detect. It is now resolved in a new way so as to preserve compatibility with all addons. It might not kick them on logging in, but on a reload it would. Not anymore!

* Bug2: Manually moving the minimap icon could cause an error for new users. This is now resolved.

* Bug3: "Show main tag on all" in the settings was not showing it checked, even if enabled. This is now resolved.

* Bug4: Players that tried to manually trigger a sync with a /grm sync would often find it doesn't trigger without a 2nd attempt. Fixed!


**VERSION 8.0.1R1.31 DATE: November 2nd 2018**

**--------------**
**QUALITY OF LIFE**
**--------------**

* QoL1: Added the additional Main Tagging option to show the main tag on ALL toons, including the main, not just the alts

**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* Bug1: Accidentally included debug version of the addon's syunc, so you might have gotten a bit of spam in chat...

* Bug2: Players that were new to the addon that decided to manually move the minimap icon would get a lua error. I only updated this to build old databses, not add to new. Ooops!

* Bug3: Minimap position is something NOT sync'd between alts. This is intentional as on some alts people use different addons, so the one setting unique between toons is alts. The new Custom "drag anywhere" minimap button option should now properly reflect this.

* Bug4: Fixed an issue that could cause a Lua error in regards to minimap position when swapping between alts as well.


**VERSION 8.0.1R1.30 DATE: November 1st 2018**

**--------------**
**QUALITY OF LIFE**
**--------------**

*No major new features. Lots of bug fixing and quality of life adjustments for players, with some request implementations. Thank you for your patience!*

* QoL1: Syncing is less stuttery when syncing massive alt lists. There was some spaghetti code I had written a long time ago I had not revisited. OMG, it was rebuilding the entire database in a deep array copy every second lol. This could d/c at least some people, or make the game unbearable during the sync. Stutter removed!

* QoL2: The side box to input the name, when adding an alt, is now a scrollable list with up to 30 matches, to make those hard to match names easier to see. I can up the max limit, just let me know if 30 is good enough.

* QoL3: Sync is now disabled from triggering when a player /reloads -- there is no real need to trigger a sync on reload, on when logging in the first time.

* QoL4: Main/Alt tagging is now more obvious in chat, and it is also now in the System messages for when a player comes online or goes offline.

* QoL5: MOTD is now visible just by mousing over the GRM minimap button.

* QoL6: MINIMAP button can now be moved ANYWHERE (for you people that use those addons that make the map a non-sphere lol)

* QoL7: The optional message when sending a guild invite that can be included at the guild recruit window now makes it obvious you need to hit ENTER to save the message first.

* QoL8: I had built an optional DEBUG sync file for those with disconnect issues. Please ask me on discord and I will link you so we can diagnose the problem.

* QoL9: Slight optimization on just the Join Date sync information. This is just me doing a broad mass test right now on some minimal changes to my algorithm that will improve efficiency and make it a bit more lean and faster. If all seems good I will expand it to the rest of the sync data.


**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* Bug1: Syncing settings of NEW players that first get configured was not working at all. In fact, it was screwing things up! If you logged on a new alt for the first time this addon installed, not only would it not sync right, it would then overwrite all of your alts you had previously configured with default settings again. HOW ANNOYING!!! Fixed...

* Bug2: Audit Log should now properly sort the Promo dates when sorting ascending or descending.

* Bug3: Fixed miscellaneous bug that caused error in some rare cases when loading CommunityFrame for the 1st time.

* Bug4: Portuguese Client should no longer spam adding friends in the system messages as they are properly filtered now.

* Bug5: Korean client was completely broken due to inability to parse creation date. This addon will now work for them perfectly.

* Bug6: A similar but different parsing error in the early configuration of the addon was affecting Mandarin Chinese and Taiwanese clients. This is now resolved and they should work properly...

*Yes, I am really debugging and testing on all 11 supported client languages.*


**VERSION 8.0.1R1.29 DATE: October 13th 2018**

**--------------**
**NEW FEATURE**
**--------------**

***Improvements to the Guild Recruitment Window***

* Player can now INVITE ALL with one button and it will invite all the players currently online

* Player can now include a guild custom message that is sent to the player when they are invited to the guild. The message can be customized up to 255 characters, or not used at all

***"KICK ALL ALTS" has returned in pseudo form!***

* When kicking a player from the guild, you now have the option to remove all of their alts nearly automatically as well

* The way this works is the addon will build a macro for you that auto-populates all of the alt names into with a /gremove altName1

* Then, it keybinds the macro to "CTRL-SHIFT-K" - This allows you to access this guild kick macro without needing it on a toolbar (A message will remind you of keybind)

**--------------**
**QUALITY OF LIFE**
**--------------**

* QoL1: Guild Leader can now force rank restrictions logic with "g2^x" note in either the PUBLIC or OFFICER note. If it is in public, it mandates sync restriction settings guild-wide. If in officer, it only forces officer settings.

* QoL2: Cleaned up some of the UI interactions a bit. Might not be too noticeable, but they are overall better in some areas.

**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* Bug1: Fixed an issue related to guild sync where in some cases data would not be shared.

* Bug2: Fixed an issue where there are two copies of a player in the database from an old error if a player has not updated in a long time, fixed that, and ultimately fixed the audit log from being inaccurate on "number of incompletes"

* Bug3: The addon will no longer freeze WOW if you search the log with mature filter enabled.

* Bug4: Mature Language filter shouldn't cause repeat spam on note changes over and over again anymore if player has it enabled

* Bug5: Fixed a bug that could cause a lua error on Log tools line selection for mass deletion.

**VERSION 8.0.1R1.28 DATE: September 22nd, 2018**

***NOTE:** Long delay since last major patch was in relation to a recent job promotion at work resulting in a bit more workflow, as well as the BFA launch. I finally have a bit of a work breather, so I hammered this out. I know I didn't get everything, but I got a lot!"

**--------------**
**QUALITY OF LIFE**
**--------------**

* QoL1: Player can now set the Custom Note as a destination for auto-joinDate adding.

* QoL2: Player now has the option to set the kick recommendation to only recommend if ALL alts in a grouping have been offline past the deadline (enabled by default)

* QoL3: Log will now display the player's public and officer notes when they leave the guild. You can toggle this on and off in the settings (under scan options)

* QoL4: The Guild recruit window now has a mass purge button that allows you to mass remove ALL guild applicants with one button (with confirmation protection)

* QoL5: Guild Leader can now set Officer note to force all officers to mandated sync restriction rank (This clearly only works for officers, as they are the only that can read the officer note)

* QoL5: -- Use "g2^X" with X being the rank index. 0 = Guild Leader, 9 = Lowest initiate rank.

* QoL5: -- So, if the GL has 2 officer ranks and wants to restrict to that, it is 0 = GL, 1 = officerRank1, 2 = OfficerRank2, thus g2^2 = officer rank and above.

* QoL6: Added a couple of tooltips that are Guild Leader only, for their own use, with instruction on how to use officer note settings (they only appear if not utilized)

* QoL7: Add alt auto-complete names as you type are now shifted more to the left so longer names don't bleed over the edge.

* QoL8: Hard reset button added in the help options... same thing as /grm hardreset. DO NOT USE unless desperate to do full reset account wide of all addon datra.

**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* Bug1: Calendar invite list should scroll properly now.

* Bug2: Calendar Date player modified should now properly be displayed in the tooltip of the calendar as well.

* Bug3: Fixed 2 different issues that could lead to disconnect when syncing. BUT, I likely will need testers since many are disconnecting immediately.

* Bug4: Whispers were not working for some people who set their whispers to their own separate window. This has been resolved.

* Bug5: Fixed issue where Empty Officer notes were reported to the log as being added Thus "" was added was showing. (This may need some more testing)

* Bug6: Mouseover window should no longer spazz out while looking at guild professions window!

* Bug7: Fixed an issue that was causing syncing of settings among alts wrong.

* Bug8: Fixed a bug that could cause people who haven't updated in a long time to be unable to load the addon properly

* Bug9: Fixed an error that could prevent a player from updating their settings properly in 1.27

* Bug10: Fixed a bug that could cause a lua error if clicking the minimap icon too soon after logon. TY @TimeDrawsNigh

* Bug11: Player should no longer lose focus in ANY situation when typing in the calendar note windows.

* Bug12: Fixed issue on the Promotion date not showing properly in the tooltip and audit log, whilst the mouseover window did. @RedEvil11

* Bug13: System messages must be enabled for this addon to work. A source of problem for several players were those who had them disabled

* Bug13: -- The addon now properly informs them of this status and disables from moving forward until they are re-enabled, without causing error.

* Bug14: Main tag should properly show in all cases now when adding alts

* Bug15: Players with more than 12 alts could end up with misaligned alt lists. The width/wordwrap settings are now correct.

**VERSION 8.0.1R1.27 DATE: August 13th, 2018**

*MINOR UPDATE*

* Blizz made it so players can now edit their own note, even without being an officer. The addon now supports this.

* You can now toggle the public, officer, and custom note borders to be on or off in the general options.


**VERSION 8.0.1R1.26 DATE: August 8th, 2018**

**--------------**
**QUALITY OF LIFE**
**--------------**

* QoL1: Export log will now include the numbered lines if you wish.

* QoL2: Officer/Public/Custom note cleaned up a bit more to my liking... no need for the antiquated Blizz box

* QoL3: Officer/public notes should now update instantly if looking at Blizz's player details frame that pops out on clicking on the player. Before you had to click on it again to refresh. I force it now.

* QoL4: Cleaned up some custom note sync UX stuff. A little cleaner.

* QoL5: Blizz's StreamViewMarker is a little flawed and inconsistent on when we really want to scrollback in unread messages. I thus created my own tag.

* QoL6: Added right-click suggestion in tooltip on the mouseover alt names and player name, as many do not seem to know you can right click them for additional options, like setting as main.

**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* Bug1: Fixed an issue with retroactive !note tagging where it would scan past MORE than just the unread. Warning, you will need to logout at least once for this to trigger accurately.

* Bug2: Blizz finally fixed the CHAT_MSG_WHISPER and CHAT_MSG_GUILD properly, whcih broke my 1.25 workaround. But that's ok. It's proper now!

* Bug3: Fixed an issue with new players joining the guild where sometimes info wasn't saving accurate on first pass.

* Bug4: Add Alt should be working properly again in all cases

* Bug5: Fixed an issue that would allow new mouseover windows to popup, even though the member detail Blizz side frame was up.

* Bug6: Audit window should now properly auto-update as changes are made in ALL cases without needing to open/close the window.

* Bug7: Fixed an issue with auto-complete on the Add Alt when clicking the name instead of hitting enter.

* Bug8: Fixed an issue when syncing custom notes, shouldn't error out now, which might have crashed your sync.

* Bug9: Fixed an issue where in some cases a lua erorr could occur in showing the player promotion history on mouseover.


**VERSION 8.0.1R1.25DATE: July 29th, 2018**

**--------------**
**NEW FEATURE**
**--------------**

*The **!note** tagging can now be done by any player in the guild, whether an officer with GRM installed is online or not. What now happens is when an officer logs on with GRM installed, they will scan the previous history of unread messages (up to 250 missed messages), and if it sees any !note messages, it will verify that they were added or not. Then, it will update those public notes that have been missed, retroactively.*

**--------------**
**QUALITY OF LIFE**
**--------------**

* QoL1: Community frame scrolling for mouseover popup window - Keep the mouse cursor stationary, but use the mousewheel to scrool and you may have noticed that the player window did not update (not mine or Blizz's tooltip), only when you manually moved the mouse over each button.

* QoL1: Now, the names will updated on a static scroll.

* QoL2: In relation to this, I noticed that Blizz's player tooltip seemed to work fine on mouseover with the Community window "CHAT" tab, but not the "ROSTER" tab, so on the guild community, I have fixed it, and the tooltip should now be working properly (I will remove my code if Blizz ever fixes it)

* QoL2: I have also made it so Blizz's tooltip behaves like mine behaves, where it will auto-update if the mouse is stationary and you just use scrollwheel. I have also Class colorized the name in the tooltip

* QoL3: I have figured out a reasonable way to make it so when a player joins the guild, I can build their metadata profile nearly immediately (2 seconds or less), so their mouseover works well right away. You have no idea how decidedly complicated this was considering the server call only provided me updated player data on the backend once per 10 seconds minimum, so often massive delay. No More! This is actually partially due thanks to new CommunityFrame data stream.

* QoL4: Calendar main/alt tagging should no longer reset and disappear and so on on the Calendar invite windows - it was a little buggy before, and now it should be without issue

* QoL5: Added a <NG> tag in the calendar invites... it will show over players who are invited to your event but are "Not Guildies" -- if you can think of a better tag, please let me know.

* QoL6: Added the [M] brackets format to choose from now in the main tag formatting options. Also, I made it so the tag is standardized for both main/alt formatting, and the proper format will now also show in the calendars, not just the guildied chat

**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* Bug1: Major behind the scenes bug fix for some players who were unable to load up addon (where they logon and window pops up but all tabs are blank)

* Bug2: Main Tags are working again on all realms, including MERGED realms. "CHAT_MSG_GUILD" is still broken on Blizz's end so I had to add a new guid check to pull full details)

* Bug3: Fixed an issuere where the "Time since Promotion" mouseover info would report the player as having joined 17 years ago (there might be some edge cases here I haven't thought of, so please report if you see the "17 years ago" bug.

* Bug4: Fixed an issue that could cause Lua erros in conflict with other addons through addon to addon chat.


**VERSION 8.0.1R1.24 DATE: July 23rd, 2018**

**--------------**
**QUALITY OF LIFE**
**--------------**

* QoL1: Fixed some Audit Log column and fontstring allignment issues I didn't even notice until using non-English.

* QoL2: ElvUI AddOnSkins has been fully updated, and their author accepted and merged my file for their official next release (not sure when that will be)

* QoL2: I will post the file in Discord, so PM if you want it, or you can wait til their next release.

**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* Bug1: The Audit log should now properly be working again when you select the "Only show incomplete guildies" option!

* Bug2: Calendar Invite lists should work properly now, show proper alt/main tags, allow the right click context menu, and you should be able to click players with alts to see their side alt grouping window.

* Bug3: Calendar tooltips have been brought back and are working again... This was far more annoying and tedious a problem that would seem obvious :D

* Bug4: Fixed a Lua bug that could occur if you have version 1.23 and interacting with older versions of the addon (it didn't break anything, but Lua bug is annoying)

* Bug5: Fixed a translation spam error for those using non-English option when setting promo/join dates manually.

* Bug6: Possible fix for some people whose database is crashing completely on load...

**VERSION 8.0.1R1.23 DATE: July 21st, 2018**

**--------------**
**NEW FEATURE**
**--------------**

* Guild Leader can now add "-GRM1" or "+GRM1" to enable or disable, guild-wide, the !note adding ability.

* If an officer in the game logs in, they scan the officer note, and they will adhere to the restrictions of the GL's officer note, allowing the GL to control Officer settings. This will be expanded in the future

* RUSSIAN now included, about 50%+ translated so far. TY @OldCold on discord for this massive undertaking and help

* ITALIAN AND GERMAN 99% translated as well, special shout out to @Nehry for the German and @Nihal6 for the Italian

* Note: French Translation is underway... if you have any time to volunteer help, or wish to have a language added, please let me know!

**--------------**
**QUALITY OF LIFE**
**--------------**

* QoL1: Guild Recruitment Frame can now be shown without having to open the entire communities and roster frame with /grm recruit (also improved UX over default)

* QoL1: Or just click on the hyperlink when someone is ONLINE and requesting to join the guild

* Qol2: !note tagging is now compatible with Identity2 and Name2Chat addons.

* QoL4: Option to enable or disable the !note adding can be set, and even controlled guild-wide.

**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* Fixed a HUGE bug that would make x-realm guilds mouseover not work right for all players... This was due to Blizz finally fixing the whispering and name-server tagging properly

* Calendar bug that would cause a LOT of problems... like endlessly looping sync requests, Lua errors... unable to add anniversaries to calendar, etc. FIXED

* Player should now properly see the buttons and config of the guild recruitment window

* Lua errors resolved in many instances where configuration load order was out of sync.

* Fixed an issue that could cause player to disconnect when in the middle of a Data sync and opening the Communities window for the first time, at the same time.

**VERSION 8.0.1R1.22 DATE: July 20th, 2018**

**--------------**
**NEW FEATURE**
**--------------**

**PUBLIC NOTE TAGGING FOR NON OFFICERS**

*In patch 8.0 Blizz changed the permission and officer system of guilds. They also made it so only officers can edit public notes. You are not even able to edit just your own. This resolves that*

* Type "!note" in guild chat, and anything you type after it will be auto-set to your public note by any officer that is online with the addon installed.

* Example: **!note ilvl 300 MM Hunter - Eng/Alch**

* If I type this into guild chat, if an officer is online with GRM installed, they will then set my public note appropriately.

**--------------**
**QUALITY OF LIFE**
**--------------**

* Character count on MOTD and Guild info are now viewable again

**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

* Alt grouping window on the Calendar events invite list should now close properly when closing calendar event

* Recruit window should now properly open its window.

* Request to join recruit window the top right buttons are now properly alligned.

* Guild window should now pop up appropriately when selecting player's names through things like the audit/events windows.

* Mouseover frame window flash should no longer occur when a non-guild community window is currently the focus.


**VERSION 8.0.1R1.21 DATE: July 17th, 2018**

*Massive changes had to occur to get this addon compatible with 8.0 changes. I am not sure many will appreciate the amount of effort that went in to make this happen. But, considering the extent of the updates, changes, and the addition of new features, I am certain there may be bumps along the way. Please report them ASAP so I can get them fixed quickly! Thank you!*

**--------------**
**NEW FEATURES**
**--------------**

* **SYNC ALGORITHM UPDATED FOR NEW EXPANSION!**

* - That's right, the sync algorithm has been updated to take advantage of the ability to do a bulk dump of data at 1.28MB/s within the 5-20 sec window after logging on. After that, it is rethrottled down to just over 4KB/s, which is an internal limit by Blizz.

* - This allows on first login to do a bulk sync and even complete an entire 1000 member sync within within 2-3 seconds of starting.

* - Of note, /reload does not reset the bulk data, on a full relog reopens it to the player. Throttle controls are smarter now as well, and even take into consideration Blizz's limitation of data comms on low FPS systems.

* **ALT GROUPING WINDOW**

* - On the player mouseover popup window, if you mouseover the player alts, hold SHIFT to popup a side panel with a grouping of alts with more exact data one them. Release shift for it to disappear

* - Shift-Click to keep the window open.

* **CALENDAR EVENT MAIN/ALT TAGGING**

* When looking at the invite list in a calendar, it will now show who the main/alt is for a player. The alt grouping window is also integrated for more info if you click on their name.

* **INFINITE SCROLLING**

* - While I have been a little hesitant to implement a hybrid scrollframe, I decided to keep the log from clogging the window too much, I implemented "infinite scrolling" algorithm on the main guild log, and the audit window. This should provide a smoother experience now for mega guilds.

* **AUTO MAIN TAGGING WHEN PLAYER JOINS**

* - If a player joins, while you are online, it checks the unique accounts counter, then tags the player automatically as "main" if the counter goes up, knowing it is an alt.

* - Of note, this is not always reliable, as the unique accounts is not always accurate and won't show it was a new person, even if it was, but in many instances it will work. This ONLY works live, not for players that joined when you were not online.

* - Also, there is a delay where it can take up to 10 seconds for the server to provide updated "unique account" info, so wait a few seconds on their join.

* **REQUEST TO JOIN RECRUIT WINDOW MANAGEMENT**

* - If a player request to join the guild and is currently ONLINE, the reporting is now cleanear.

* - The recruitment window now has the ability to navigate easier from one Online player to the next for invite. It will auto scroll to the first invite, and then you have next or previous buttons to continue

* - New option to Auto-popup the Recruitment window if a player comes online (or to popup once out of combat), and autoscroll to player name position


**--------------**
**QUALITY OF LIFE**
**--------------**

QoL1: Audit Log now shows the dates of the players join/promotions, rather than just "Ok"

QoL2: Audit Log each column can now be sorted, ascending/descending, by dates, etc...

QoL3: NameChange detection is now 100% flawless in BFA - due to the inclusion of GUID tags of players, namechange detection is easy to check

QoL4: In extension to this, rejoins are now flawless. This addon will absolutely now detect if a player quits the guild, namechanges outside of the guild, and rejoins the guild, it will now properly report they are rejoining the guild AND they namechanged. Great for people that get banned and think they can get back in with a name change (of note, GUID is reset on server transfer, so if they transfer back it won't detect)

QoL5: DateTime format has been added in the format "2018-07-17"

QoL6: Tooltips should now properly updated when hitting the ESC key, like on the events window panel.

QoL7: Ban List, Users, and Events windows should now have their columns properly alligned.

QoL8: Default scan time has been changed, for new players, from 10 to 30 seconds, to prevent spamminess.

QoL9: Default BFA position of the memberdetailframe was poorly placed over the side tabs. This fixes that.

QoL10: Lots and lots of code optimization on the backend thanks to some major code changes by Blizz. This addon fully takes advantage of them.

**--------------**
**BUGS AND BUGS!**
**--------------**

*In no specific order of important, as they ALL are improtant to me!*

* Bug1: Fixed Lua error that could occur on some people's event calendar when trying to ignore the anniversary event.

* Bug2: Count should now properly display when syncing... before it was counting "mains" as a sync count, even if there were no updates.

* Bug3: Fixed an issue where player names were not saving properly if added manually through the Ban list, and the first character was a special character.

* Bug4: Fixed issue where Ban list was saying there was a localization bug when trying to edit a ban.

* Bug5: Player settings should now properly sync between alts as in some cases this was not working for some people.

* Bug6: Guild Log button frame strata on the roster window should now be appropriately matched.

* Bug7: Fixed a major bug that made it not possible to add certain players to the ban list if you were in a guild that had a large number of people who had left the guild. This would ONLY be an issue for mega guilds.

* Bug8: Fixed an error related to a conflict with the chat-chat plugin for ElvUI

* Bug9: Fixed a bug that was causing the calendar "Mass Invite" window to close

* Bug 10: Fixed a bug for players using 24hr time notation instead of 12hr clock that could cause their join/promo dates to be Jan 1st, 2001

* Bug 11: Friends lists should now be properly cleaned up if you disconnect or logoff in the middle of an Online check of the Request to join players... where you log within that 1 second window before removing them.

* Bug 12: When banning a person and all their alts... the ban "reason" was not carrying over to the alts properly. It now is.


**VERSION 7.3.5R1.1530 DATE: June 4th, 2018**

*Prepping for some big updates in BFA... so please, be patient and I will make sure we are rolling good for some big improvements. Looks like guilds being integrated into communities too so that will require a significant rework of things as well!*

**QUALITY OF LIFE**

* QoL1: For new players that join the guild, adding join date to officer/public note is turned off for people that install this addon going forward. It is an optional feature that needs to be manually engaged.

* QoL2: Previously, when a player left the guild it wiped some data I deemed unnecessary and only stored things like dates and so on. It did not store the alt lists. I have no idea how I logically deduced that was a good idea lol. So, while the alt list is reset if they rejoin, as necessity, you now have access to their previous alts when they left the guild, thus if you choose to ban the player after they left, you will now be given the option to ban all their alts as well. This unfortunately cannot be retroactive.

* QoL3: Ban List management even more streamlined. When a player types in a name it autoformats the name, then if on tabbing or moving to another box, if it finds the player in the guild or in the LeftPlayers list, it auto populates their class and auto-formats the name for adding.

* QoL4: Count now included on the number of items added sync'd.

* QoL5: Status on being able or not to add events to guild calendar has been added to the window.

**BUG FIXES**

* BUG1: Tooltip was once again, erroneously scaling ALL game tooltips when it should have just been scaling this addon's only. This would make smaller fonts like in ElvUI really difficult for some people. This is now once again FIXED. Oops!

* BUG2: Major bug fix for broken databases that never fully converted right for people that maybe haven't updated in a very long time. Thanks @chay on Discord for letting me use your database to debug this one.

* BUG3: Due to some formatting issues and non-precise user input error protections, the addon will now re-analyze the entire database and properly format any player's names that were manually added to the ban list, so they can properly be detected if they rejoin the guild.

* BUG4: Addon Settings were not properly syncing between alts, if you had that setting selected, at least not always. It is now wrapped properly and should work now. The first toon you logon to, verify their settings, and then from there the settings should sync properly.

* BUG5: Rejoin data "time passed" since they left the guild should now be accurate.


**VERSION 7.3.5R1.1520 DATE: May 27th, 2018**

*Got a little busy with RL and a promotion at work, so understand if the updates haven't been quite as speedily. I still am doing a little here and there, of course!*

**QUALITY OF LIFE**

* QoL1: Italian translation is now included! Thank you so much @Nihal6

* QoL2: When exporting the log, it should now obey the filters too, it won't export the entire log, just what you see based on your filters.

* QoL3: On manually adding players to the ban list, it scans if the player has "alts" and automatically asks you if you would like to ban all of their alts as well. This was previously possible when banning players in the guild, but now, on manually adding a guild ban it will check

* QoL4: Players now have the ability to EDIT bans.

* QoL5: Ban player interface a bit more user friendly and higher quality. Better tab or shift-tab for navigation, even up/down arrow use on the dropdown menu if you prefer.

* QoL6: Added some tooltips for some buttons, if they are localized in a language with a very long phrase, the scaling might get too small, thus tooltips on button mouseover should help clarify some more.


**BUG FIXES

* Bug1: Fixed a bug that could occure when a player is not in the guild then joins the guild, triggering scan for update.

* Bug2: Fixed a bug that could cause the player to lose keyboard focus when trying to edit calendar event.

* Bug3: On some occasions the guild ranks were not properly setting their indexes due to ranks being added or removed. This could cause serious sync issues downstream, as well as log spam. Fixed!

* Bug4: Fixed an issue with the German translation where ti would spam you saying you didn't have a string translated.
