Gives you easy access to announce to the guild when you have promoted someone....along with, if you have some different raid mods installed it will help control them.
Fubar_ConvergeFu is a simple Fubar plugin designed primarily for use by officers of the Guild [Converge] to assist them in running day-to-day guild activities, most of which are related to raiding.
Members of the guild are required to have certain addons installed in order to be permitted to raid:
* CTRA or oRA2
* Deadly Bossmods
All this addon does is provide some easily accessible menu options for sending messages to guild-chat, hooking ready-checks, item-checks, timer-bars et-al so that all officers can perform these functions easily.
This addon is currently coded to be specific to Converge (messages have guild-name and key member names built-in) however less specific versions of this addon may become available in the future.
I don't keep up-to-date here on these forums so apologies for a late response, but to answer your question, ConvergeFu itself is now unlikely to ever become adaptable for other guilds because...
- It is coded to understand our specific guild structure.
- It is based on our rank structure.
- It is a tool to meet a specific internal need.
For example: It knows which ranks in our guild are officer ranks, which are alt-officer ranks etc, all guilds have different ranks and different rules about how they operate. A single addon to cope with all possibilities is beyond my time-remit.
However, an ex-guildie is currently recoding the latest version (at the time of writing) for their guild thus a "VirtueFu" is likely to appear on WoWAce at some point as well.
In other words, if you can code Lua/Ace2, then you can easily/happily take the addon, change its name and adapt it to your own guild etc.
It was written to be well-commented (unlike the majority of addon/library code) therefore anyone taking the code should be able to fix up a version for themselves pretty quickly.
Sadly, I can't really spend any real time helping folks to make the adaptations due to the limits of time, eaten as they are by a job, a guild leadership, a family/social life etc.
I do answer the odd question but since I don't read/scan these forums at all regularly, I'd suggest sending any queries to [email]firstname.lastname@example.org[/email] for a more timely response.
