Hi all, not sure if anyone noticed, but a couple of days ago I uploaded AutomaticLFG to the SVN. It is essentially the same as AutoLFG (in fact I reused a lot of their code), however it will detect (and disable itself) when you join a party, and then re-enable itself when you leave said party.
The reasons behind making it a separate addon, rather than just changing AutoLFG is that in looking at the autolfg code, it seemed to me that the author intended it to continue working when in a party.
Basically the differences are that in AutoLFG, it detects that you are in a party and automatically changes the LFM options to something so that you go into the LFG channel. The problem is that when it does this, it overrides your settings for LFM, effectively making the auto-add members option completely useless, and also making it impossible for others outside the group to tell that you are looking for more by just looking for more themselves. AutomaticLFG solves this by disabling itself (yes it will most likely take you out of the LFG channel), so that you can specify what instance you want to LFM for. The slash commands are /automaticlfg, /autolfg, and /alfg.
If it is desired to keep you in the LFG channel by using the LFM, please let me know and I have an idea on how to make it work while still allowing you to choose the instance your group is wanting to run.
However, would it be possible to change the automatic message in LFG from the default to something else, I edited the lua to change the message from something like "Automatic LFG enabled by AutomaticLFG addon" to feral, but I'd love if there was an "official" way to do this.
Also, might be worth it to just put an "stay in LFG channel even after joining a party" checkbox somewhere, as people will probably prefer both ways(not staying and staying) being an option.
