GuildEvents

I've been working on an event addon, so people guild members can sign up for events right in the game.

It works by adding events to the guild MOTD.
Members can sign up for events by adding the event ID to their member note.
This addon can then see who is signed up for each event.

FEATURES
  • Create/Delete events via the UI
  • See events for a guild by selecting a guild on the left.
  • Sign up for events by checking the check box and unsign up by unchecking the check box.
  • Everyone in the guild can see who signed up for an event.
  • Attendee list is updated in real time when members sign up for an event
  • Open/close the window with a hotkey.
  • You can only create up to 5 events. (for now)


To be added (in no particular order)
  • Button for event leaders that automatically invites all attendees when clicked.
  • Alerts when new events have been created. (Option to turn off in addon settings)
  • Functionality to send whispers to attendees.
  • Show of the people that signed up for the event, who is actually in the group. (So leaders can see who they still need to invite)
  • Alert when someone signed up for an event. (Option to turn this off in the addon settings)
  • Ability to define roles when signing up. (Tank, healer, damage)

Nice idea, Meai. It's sad that we have to resort to abusing tools like MOTD and member notes in order to pass information like this. I realize ZOS has some serious concerns about cross-addon communication, but there's a huge number of quality of life improvements that could be made if some restricted ability to maintain background communication were allowed.

Thanks Atropos.
Yes I wish there was an easier way, but alas...
Part of me feels a little dirty having to do some sort of work around like using guild MOTD, but oh well. It works and so far words somewhat well. =)

Are we able to keep our guild member note as it is and just add the id somewhere at the end/at the bginning in a particular format?
Something like "|1,2|" e.g. to attend to events 1 and 2?

Yes, it just adds to the guild note.

So if your guild note is:

v14 NB, Temp
God Of Crafting

It will just add #1# to the end of it. SO it would look like this:
v14 NB, Temp
God Of Crafting
#1#

The only problem is that is someone puts another # in their guild note, it may confuse the addon. Something to add to the TODO list I guess =)

Perhaps use another character like the pipe symbol in my example, or a combination someone would manually use, like <|1,2,5|>

Have you tried printing the character using string formating?

Lua Code:
  1. string.char(124)

That would or rather should represent the pipe symbol '|'

Not sure how ESO stores this data yet though.. only worked with LUA for RIFT but hope to make some addons for ESO very soon.

Congrats on your addon btw and good luck on progression

Just use anything other than pipe, ESO uses it as escape, so you'd need to double each one.
