Advanced Group Roster  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 11.1
by: aldericon [More]
Advanced Group Roster allows you to make a number of adjustments to your group roster. These include:

- option to switch out the character for account name, or have them side-by-side instead
- switch out champion point lvl for PVP rank (with icon)
- color-code player roles
- mark yourself on the roster with a STAR
- 'Auto Transfer Leadership Upon Death' setting, which transfers group leadership (if you're the current group leader) to a secondary leader that is in group
- Replace people's names with your own nicknames
-- If you are displaying account and character names side-by-side, the nickname is still just replaced in the first column
- color-code those that are in the same zone as you
- ability to hide those roster roles that that player isn't using
- ability to add notes to each player in the group roster, like the guild roster
- ability to watch for when group members are away
-- listens for your own list of away messages in group chat and uses the guild roster away icon to set the person as away
-- next chat message after being set to away returns them to normal
-- their away message is added with the tooltip when mousing over the away icon
-- the time they went away is also recorded in the tooltip
- Raid Attendance on how long a character participates in Raid
-- The idea is that a leader will start the raid, and as each character joins and leaves, the addon adds up their total time spent in group. Then at the end of the raid, you can follow the following instructions (also found in the addon's settings in-game) to get the data and put it in whatever format you need.

Thanks to Ayantir and her addon GMen for providing these steps. Tutorial for Notepad++ (to export Raid Attendance):
  • Open the file
  • Do Ctrl+H (Search & Replace)
  • In Search, Write : (^\s*\[\d*\]\s\=\s\")(.*)(\",$)
  • In Replace, Write : \2
  • Select option Regular Expression
  • Click Replace All
  • Copy your text
  • Close your file WITHOUT saving

This addon also adds some options to the group roster when clicking a player's name:
- Adding/Removing someone as a Secondary Leader: Easy add or remove someone via the group roster vs. using the addon settings.
- Clearing that person's AFK status: When tracking whether group members are away, sometimes they simply post when they leave but not when they come back. So you can manually remove someone's AFK status.
- Kicking a Player from group: if the leader has you set as a secondary leader, you can use this to kick someone from group.
- Promoting a Player to Group Leader: if the current group leader has you set as a secondary leader, you can use this to promote someone to be group leader.

Group Invite Options:
- Allows you to auto-invite players from chat that type in the invite string.
- Allows you to specify group size and when to auto-kick people who go offline
- Can set to only listen to non-zone chat or all chats
- Ability, per guild, to say 'only invite if they are this rank or higher'. For example, if player A uses the auto-invite code and their rank is 'Member', but the setting is set for rank 'Raider' (which is higher then 'Member'), the auto-invite won't allow them to join group.

Raid Management Options:
Raid Management allows you to auto-set how many of different types (that you get to create) of players you want in your group. You can choose to rank them and let those that come later to group join and kick players that are considered a lower grade, or simply do it on a first-come-first-serve basis. You write up the character name, choose the rank, then add them to the right list. When they use the group invite system to get into raid, the code will ensure that only that amount of healers, dps, etc. get into raid, allowing the group leader to do what needs to be done. You can use '/rreq' to post a list of how many of each player type you currently have in group.

Guild Advertisement:
Ability to advertise your guild in zone. Add the message via the addon menu (or via chat with /mg* command - ex. /mg1 for first guild listed, /mg2 for second, etc) and post it in chat with /ga* command.

If there's anything you'd like to add, simply put a comment here or feel free to PM me in game at '@aldericon'.

Thank you for the picture! I was able to figure it out; if you have 'Sort By UserID' on and 'Hide Character Roles Not Used' off, it was showing the problem while grouped.

I'll put in some time soon to debug it and put in a fix for it. For now I suggest turning off 'Sort By UserID'.
I just put out a new version, which I hope will fix your problem.

No known incompatibilities exist. I suggest turning off all add-ons and turning them back on one-by-one to discover the source of the problem.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Scrolling Error?

Trolls won't be no trolls if you try to come by with ther help of addons.
Just "ignore them" and they will have no fun being a troll anymore, that's the best way to handle this.
If noone reacts or notices what they do, even if it makes more work, they will just be the idiots
Happy holidays!

1) Limit the group size to 20 people max, which is possible with AGR's 'Max Group Size' option. This allows you to always use the sort feature.

2) The addon allows for 'Secondary Leaders', which gives them the ability to post in chat whom to kick, invite, etc., using either UserID or Character Name. Add yourself as a secondary leader, and then writing 'kick X' in group chat will kick that user, instead of having to find them in the roster.

3) If #2 doesn't work because you're unable to write / remember the whole UserID, I can create a new function that finds the user that you're referring to. For example, you could type '/agrkick der' and it would list '1) @aldericon 2) @derphy 3) @grider' and you could then do '/agrkickconfirm 1' and it would kick @aldericon from group.

See if any of those work for you. #3 would be a new feature, but I'd be happy to write it.
#2 sounds sufficient. I'll have to give that a try, for sure. Thank you for the info. I had no idea. If it's on the description page, I apologize for my ignorance!

And as for not being able to see who uses mementos, that's crazy. ZOS needs to change that. Some of them become such a problem in group settings. For example, during the Witches Festival, trolls would wait until most people mounted and then use the event's whistle because it would dismount everyone nearby that was in the group with the whistle-user. SOOO annoying.

Anyway... Thank you for your help and I appreciate the work you've done. You're awesome. Happy holidays.

Yeah, I tend to need to kick AFKers or trolls.
Especially with Alik'r dolmens. Some players tend to stand around AFKing and getting xp for doing nothing. I'm not a fan of that. (Unless they're the leader of the group. Because they're providing a service to the area for other players to utilize, so they can do or not do whatever they want as far as I'm concerned. Lol.)
Also, trolls like to put down cauldrons and cakes and such that you can interact with. They block the interaction with the chest that spawns after defeating a dolmen. It's insanely aggravating and I loathe these players. So I try to figure out who it is and kick them immediately.
Plus, i don't see character names anywhere in my UI. Not in the group UI or chat or in the 3D world. So character names are completely useless for me. @names are much more useful. Especially if you're trying to get to know your guildmates, etc.

So yeah.... if you know of a way of adding system messages that put in chat who uses certain (or any) momentos, that would be a great help in getting rid of trolls.

I'm curious; what are you doing that you are needing the list sorted to find people (it sounds like a hardship because you do it a lot)? Are you leading groups and trying to clean up the roster by kicking people? Or just curious about who's in group?
Gosh, you're nosey.
LOL. Totally kidding.
Yeah, I tend to need to kick AFKers or trolls.
Especially with Alik'r dolmens. Some players tend to stand around AFKing and getting xp for doing nothing. I'm not a fan of that. (Unless they're the leader of the group. Because they're providing a service to the area for other players to utilize, so they can do or not do whatever they want as far as I'm concerned. Lol.)
Also, trolls like to put down cauldrons and cakes and such that you can interact with. They block the interaction with the chest that spawns after defeating a dolmen. It's insanely aggravating and I loathe these players. So I try to figure out who it is and kick them immediately.
Plus, i don't see character names anywhere in my UI. Not in the group UI or chat or in the 3D world. So character names are completely useless for me. @names are much more useful. Especially if you're trying to get to know your guildmates, etc.

So yeah.... if you know of a way of adding system messages that put in chat who uses certain (or any) momentos, that would be a great help in getting rid of trolls.

So I managed to get into a large group and found quite a bit of bugs. lol, that's what happens when you do stuff you don't normally do.

I managed to write code to prevent the errors, but unfortunately had to disable the sort feature when the group is larger then 20; let me explain: I can go through a group and get everyone's userId to sort by, but some of the information in the roster can only be gotten by going line by line. So the sort by gathers all the information by doing one loop of the roster, then does a second loop to switch out the information line by line with the sorted index. However, when you are in a group with > 20 and the scroll comes into play, when loading the roster and looping through that first time, I only get information that is being shown - I can't get the next rows that are available after scrolling until you actually scroll. Which means if a user with a userId that should be in the 3rd slot is listed as #24, they won't show up in the 3rd slow but will show up in the 3rd slow after you scroll all the way down, so while you're not missing anyone in group, it won't sort correctly.

I updated the addon's setting's description so that people are aware, but wanted to explain here. I'm not sure how often you're in large groups, but at this time it's simply a limitation of what's available to me.
