FuBar_AddonSpamFu is a FuBar plugin which keeps track of who sends addon messages, what addon they used to send it to you, and how much data they have sent.
- Sort By: Sort the list by name or by amount of data.
- Track Types: You may choose to ignore any of the types of Addon Messages: BATTLEGROUND, RAID, PARTY, GUILD, and WHISPER.
- Rename Prefixes: The first field of an addon message is called the prefix. Most addons use their name for this, but some addons use something else. Enabling this option will rename some prefixes to the addon's name. It only renames addons that I've encountered so far. This will also combine different prefixes from the same addon into one prefix on the FuBar tooltip and it will add the renamed prefix to each displayed line to give you a better idea of what addon is sending each message.
- Display Addon Messages: You can choose where to display the messages, if at all. If you have chosen not to track certain types of addon messages, they will be a light red color, otherwise they will be green.
- This is my first time sharing an addon through the WowAce SVN
- You can get the addon from the WowAce SVN here: http://files.wowace.com/FuBar_AddonSpamFu/FuBar_AddonSpamFu.zip
- Shift-Click the fubar plugin to reset the data.
- I'd recommend ignoring the WHISPER channel unless you have reason to suspect that someone is spamming you through WHISPER type addon messages, or one of your addons is sending WHISPER type spam since AddonSpamFu will record all of your outgoing whispers without recording any whispers sent between other players. This could cause misleading results where you're at the top of the list. I feel that it is a good idea to use WHISPER type messages sent directly to interested individuals instead of simply using the other channels where lots of people receive the message.
I welcome any comments or suggestions. If you know of an addon that sends messages using an ambiguous prefix, please reply here. Also, please feel free to contribute localizations for languages other than english, though the addon should function in any locale.
Also, if you have any idea what addon is sending any of the following Prefixes, please reply
- "BGGQ" - Gladiator receives this but doesn't send it.
This is incredible! Is DTMR DotTimer? It's by a wide margin the spammiest addon I've seen up until now.
