I think the "fix that was posted" would be my branch. BTW please check it out and merge over whatever you want to keep, I cleaned up a lot of stuff and made DevNull work more like the other Ace addons do :)
This is great, I tried your version out Tekkub and it saves my settings between sessions (the old one didn't for some reason).
Now, if some talented coder could only make this mute selected channels while in raid instances I'm sure half my guild would be overjoyed... I've set up a separate tab with all channels except for General and LocalDefence, but it misses system and addon messages. Leaving and rejoining would ofc be an option, but I always forget to rejoin... :(
Thanks for all the hard work on this mod, its been nice to enjoy the silence.
I am trying to allow emotes to come accross. I use /devnull emote and I get the response that the filter is turned off, but I never see any emotes. Mine included. using /devnull to see what is set, it shows emotes are off. Loging out and back in, doing a /devnull it shows to be back on.
Basically I (and many others I know :p) are all too fed up with the massive spamfest that usually starts in MC, BWL and other raid instances.
I think not much control would be necessary. The channels are General, Trade, LFG (for those that are still in it) and Local Defense, when I'm in an instance I don't need to see those channels at all. Maybe an option to choose what channels to mute? Other than that I imagine that if you would enjoy a spam free BWL you'd also enjoy the same serenity in Shadowfang Keep or the Deadmines, so configuring what instances would trigger a mute of the channels would be overkill.
I don't know if the game has any way of reporting all "instance-type" places the same way or if you need to check for locations (is that what the Tourist lib is for?) but notable exeptions would probably be the Alliance Tram between Stormwind and Ironforge, and the ships/zeppelins ofcourse.
Never seen an "Blackwing Lair is under attack" warning ever, just "Some-random-old-martial-arts-actor-does-whatever-to-whomever-in-some-supposedly-funny-way". About as fun as watching paint dry imo, and makes me scroll endlessly to find the bits and pieces of the "real" raidchat that I need to see.
Tried it out in MC yesterday, usually it's spammy enough to make one slightly insane. But the serenity now was awesome! It works just as stated - and I love you Jncl and Tekkub, in a very platonic way :)
Hm, it seems that /dev/null turns off /yells and stuff in instances also... is that intentional? I think that in town I don't want yells and emote spam, but in instances I do want NPC, emotes and yells. Pretty Please :)
