A question then... If EJ_GetSectionInfo(7050) >> High Priestess Mar'li then why does LibBabble-Boss still exist?
Non-EJ bosses (pre-cataclysm raids). We personally abandoned it in Big Wigs a while back.

There is only one kind of "encounter id", the one from the EJ.
For encounters with more than one boss they usually have sections with the boss names which you can use EJ_GetSectionInfo on to get the translated boss names. e.g. EJ_GetSectionInfo(7050) >> High Priestess Mar'li
Apr 16, 2013Last time I looked into Calendar reporting, the functionality was completely FUBAR. Luckily Blizz changed something which seemed to fix the spam invites. I guess they've found a way around whatever Blizz changed, I'll take a look at the API again and see if it's improved at all.Posted in: General AddOns

No. I'm not really interested in hooking and the function doesn't provide player GUID anyway.
You can stop reporting non-whisper guilds ads, my goal isn't to block every single one and I don't have the patience for it right now.
Fixed the rest.
Mar 25, 2013You need to follow Starinnia's instructions to have your module properly engage/wipe.Posted in: AddOn HELP!
BigWigs:NewBoss("Ji-Kun Groups", 930, 828)
The last number is the EJ entry of the boss, only actual boss modules should have this set. You should simply be doing:
BigWigs:NewBoss("Ji-Kun Groups", 930)
Once again only actual boss modules are meant to "Win", since this is just a tactics module, you want it to disable and not play any victory music.
Mar 18, 2013Current alpha:Posted in: General AddOns
Due to Blizzard's continued nerfing of the reporting system we now implement our own mini blacklist. Currently, we use the calendar date API to create a 1 day table that expires every day. This table prevents showing the "click to report" message for people you've already reported, it doesn't however prevent seeing chat from that person, that's up to the current filters.
As if it wasn't bad enough that they made the internal blacklist clear itself when you log to a different character in 5.0/5.1 it seems they've broke it further this patch. After reporting a certain amount of people the internal blacklist clears itself. The reporting functionality then breaks altogether and no longer adds the people you're reporting to the internal Blizzard blacklist.
Unfortunately Blizzard has been on a mission to make their spam blocking functionality worse and worse as time goes by, so this new system should help out not only with this new issue but also with character swapping. It's sad that the best version of the spam reporting system was the one the originally implemented in TBC.
Mar 11, 2013Posted in: Raid AddOnsQuote from electronicpunkHey funky,
As of 5.2 there is a mage spell thats seems to be registering as a soultstone not entirely sure which spell tho sadly.
But over the space of a 9 minute fight. 2 mages cast it twice so the counter shows as -4!
If it helps I can grab one later and have them unleash their entire spellbook on a target dummy.
Try the latest alpha.

Looking into it.
Mar 5, 2013Posted in: LibrariesQuote from funkydudeUnfortunately they have not moved the chat functions onto animations which they really need to do to actually solve this issue cropping up again and said addons being blamed for blocking something else. Fingers crossed for future builds.
Unfortunately they did not fix this for 5.2, hopefully the next patch will convert chat tab flashing to animations. Until then, this library will prevent chat addons being blamed for any other taint that happens to crop up (Blizzard uses UIFrameFlash in a LOT of places).

I can't remember my reason for this but I won't be removing it.

Is the guild spam a whisper?
Feb 13, 2013Half-good news. Blizzard has somewhat listened and the latest 5.2 build moves the talent frame flash away from using UIFrameFlash and onto using an animation. It means chat-related addons and any addons using UIFrameFlash on purpose can no longer be blamed for talent frame taint.Posted in: Libraries

Feb 13, 2013Posted in: LibrariesQuote from SeerahBlizz has been trying to fix stuff like this lately. The taint is an unintended side-effect which will be remedied.
5.2 was supposed to be the "taint fixing patch" according to an internal dev. They fixed 2 taint issues, several still remain.
While ultimately it would be great if authors had some kind of direct line to Blizzard, the truth is we have to jump through hoops just to get noticed. Bugs go unfixed for years, taint issues go unfixed for months.
I'd love this to be fixed for patch 5.2, but there are other taint issues still unresolved. Do you honestly think they will be resolved in the last 2-3 weeks of the patch? The UI code is probably already frozen.
I haven't heard that rumour. Someone on IRC that had connections internally told us that Blizz was looking into fixing taint issues for 5.2. But as of last week, "we" got an email response saying that said developer(s) were finished with dealing with taint issues.
You'll need to provide more information than that unfortunately. e.g. Where are you seeing these messages, from the taint log? Is it set to 2? In this mode, ALL tainting (hooking) is tracked doesn't matter if it's bad or good, which can be misleading to some people.
