I am trying to setup Grid for when it will have 40 people in it, and aside from getting into an AV and getting yelled at, or trying to do it in the middle of raids; is there a mod that fools WoW or other mods into thinking it is in a raid? Aside from requesting a Grid feature to create a false raid within itself (probably a plugin for it if anything.
I started something like this quite some time ago with PerfectRaid, and its not very difficult, you just have to decide what attributes you want the raid to have (buffs, etc.) and hook the API functions necessary to make everything work.
This would essentially taint everything, so you would absolutely not want to ever do this when you could potentially enter combat =) I'd love to work on this with someone, if someone is interested.
An addon like this would be incredibly useful for setting up group and raid frame placement. Preferably independent of what mods you are using for your frames (Grid, PerfectRaid, aguf, etc.). It is so annoying to get into a group/raid and realize that your frames are out of whack and, as digitalruse says, everyone starts yelling at you because you are fidgeting with them. The ability to save profiles would be immensely useful as well (for when you are playing different toons, i.e., healer, dps, tank, etc.).
