X4D LibAntiSpam  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.65
by: wilson0x4d [More]
X4D LibAntiSpam

A LibStub-compatible Anti-Spam Library that can be used from Chat Mods, Mail Mods, etc.

Can also be used as a Stand-Alone Chat Mod to filter 'spammers' and 'flooders'.

Features
  • Does not fill up your in-game ignore list, blocking is performed internally.
  • Whitelists your Friends, Group Members and Guild Members.
  • User Patterns are Editable via Options UI.
  • Detects Spammers, and blocks them for the duration of your session.
  • Detects Flooders, and temporarily blocks them for a user-configurable duration.
  • Detects "Gold Spammer Guild Invites" and auto-declines them.
  • Can be used as a Library by other Add-Ons, such as X4D Chat (integration requires Add-On author support.)
  • Can be used as a stand-alone Add-On to auto-filter Spammers and Flooders from Chat.

Planned Features
  • Pattern Sync (share your patterns with your Guild, your Friends, etc)


Installation

First, make sure you have the latest X4D Core installed.

As with most Addons, simply open the Archive and copy the contents into "%USERPROFILE%\Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\live\Addons\" folder.

If ESO is already running, execute /reloadui command.


Change Log

To see version history, including 'vNext' (soon to be published) changes, view the README on Github.

You probably want to set "Flood Time" in the options to "0" if you don't mind the excess chat.

Post back from vacation, new version released for ESO 1.1 update

I have tried to cover this a few times, but the bits get lost in the comments. So here's the related update for everyone that has ever asked:

I've been waiting for the normalization code to prove stable before "formally" documenting pattern construction. I believe it's at a point where I've not *had* to modify normalization to screen out the bulk of spammers, I'll take some time tonight (and tomorrow) to update the README.md with the info everyone needs. I'll also modify code to allow user patterns to match against "pre-normalized text", so more complex patterns can be written which match against the original text.

One user suggested matching only a percentage of the input, I just want to note this is already done.

After the next release my focus will be shifting away from normalization and patterns and instead focus on heuristics. I've received a few great ideas on how to deal with some more extreme spam without necessarily having to update scrubs to do it.

That latest verison is updated for ESO 1.1, it also contains a few modifications made since the last release to help scrub out a few spammers not previously being caught.

Enjoy!

I would also like some input on adding entries. Not sure how that is supposed to work.

Also, how do you remove someone? I'm pretty sure it just automatically ignored someone that was just looking for a group for a dark anchor but I don't see a way to undo that.

By far the most dependable anti-spam addon I've tried. I have not been disappointed by it yet. Thank you.

Yeah this...

Also, the gold spammers are getting smart by adding strings of random letters at the end of their zone messages so that fool the flood control. Can you add in a function where it checks on a percentage of the message and if a certain percentage is the same then it blocks the whole post please?

What I don't get is if we are going to the trouble of blocking their messages, why the actual F do they think we are interested in buying gold? All they are doing is pissing us off and making us not want to play the game, which surely is counter-productive for them. They need to target the players who don't have the addons because they are perhaps interested in buying gold. Some of their messages you need a F-ing degree in cryptography to decipher... Twunts.

Same. Just started recently. I have a huge add-on list, so it could be a conflict. I know some weird stuff happening with older and newer libstub mixing between add-ons.

This addon has kept a large percentage of spam out of my chatbox, and I'm grateful for that. Great work.

Still there are the occasional spammers that get by, as well as the trolls and other undesireables that I manually ignore. Unfortunately, because I am still manually ignoring some spammers, my ignore list is still occasionally filling up. I clear out the ignore list every now and again, but it's not always obvious who I ignored for reasons other than spamming (some spammers have oddly normal account names, while some normal players have account names that look facerolled).

I was wondering if it would be a feasible addition to your addon's functionality to update it's own filters to include any character/account that I manually ignore, so that I could just clear my whole list when it fills without letting some of these folks back into my online life?

Please let me know which version you upgraded FROM and TO.

This shouldn't be possible with the current code, so I believe this is being caused by an older version of the Add-On, just not sure which.

I'll create a work-around, but it would be better if I could confirm where this problem is coming from rather than just put a band-aid on it, you know?

Thanks!

UPDATE: v1.57 contains code to work-around this issue.
I am going to say 1.53 to 1.54 then once more to 1.55? It started when I updated 1.53 to 1.54 though. Yes I dl'd using minion and how I fixed it was renamed .lua to .old then restarted ESO and everything has been fine since
