    Rest assured that Blizzard wouldn't ban you for using an add-on, if anything they would break its functionality. I think you're afraid because of what the OP said but don't worry, it's probably not the entire story.

    If you get logged out of the game when you are AFK you should be fine.
    Some people doesn't get kicked and some does.

    Hmmm i'd find it strange if they banned people simply for using Oque. I'm sure i've seen blue posts in reply to people who have complained about not being able to find groups for stuff on an under populated realm where a blizzard blue poster has actually recommended the Oque addon as a solution... The addon has also been recommended on popular and reputable websites such as wowinsider.

    I normally use Oque to find my ordos and Celestial weekly kill on my main and a few alts. I enable it, find my groups for that on a wednesday and then turn it off.. I wasn't aware that it kept you logged in when afk and it's never come up because I disable it whenever i'm not actively using it.

    I've heard the reason that OQ has been removed from websites such as curse is simply because it asks for donations on it's in game interface... Nothing to do with the functionality of the addon being against any rules.

    I'd like to see a blue post on the subject... Blizz know it's a popular addon that thousands of players use so I find it hard to believe that they'd start banning players who would clearly have no reason to believe they were doing anything wrong.

    I'm sure someone said it already, but the addon does have a "prevent afk" feature. Which IS 100% ban-able. Whether any of you want to believe it or not, i remember specifically when they implemented that rule when Cata was launched and servers with login queue times had problems with people using anti afk methods.

    The only thing they could ban people for in the addon is the anti afk function.

    And another edit. Seems the anti afk function is gone anyway.

    I always made sure I got the prevent afk feature off , but I stopped using the addon just before I stopped playing MoP.

    oQueue is a glutinous hog of an addon that infiltrates itself in whatever you do, even though you can hide the whispers they never truly stop so there's always a butt ton of traffic involved.

    Usually my Elvui uses around 7-8mb of memory ( with things like DBM , Gatherer and a few bits ) but as soon as you turn on oQueue and hide the whispers it keeps going up and up , once to a staggering 50+mb used. so u can figure how much background crap its sending.

    Also everytime I hide myself from oQueue or go dark ( or even uninstall ) I keep getting randoms added on my friendslist for another 2-3 days.
    Apart from all these things the concept is good , but due to the way it infiltrates itself and keeps sending hidden traffic I would never use it on any decent server like Silvermoon EU Alliance of Draenor EU Horde.

    But if your stuck on one of those '' we got 5 raiding guilds '' realms that its your only option next to transferring, just wish it wasn't such a hog of addon.

    any luck getting you account back?

    That answer from the GM is so vague and stupid i dont find words really.
    You can go into any lowlevel dungeon and but yourself in combat and it doesnt log you out.
    All the raiders in my guild on kazzak-EU go into RFC and AFK there from morning to raidtime due to we having 2hrs log-in que at raidtimes.

    they should yes but i never understood blizzards philosiphy on thease thing...

    I've never had any issues with the addon, been using it most of MoP. I have all the options unchecked except for maybe one or two.

    Not to disparage anyone making such a claim but often times it is other programs, and not addons, that are the reason why an account is suspended or closed. That or other illicit activities (i.e. Scamming, Win Trading, Account Sharing, etc…).

    OH REALLY?! lol maybe because thats an outright lie... and there never was an "Anti-AFK" feature. Ive been using the addon LITERALLY from day one. Months before it was one curse, there never existed such a thing.

    Oh a blue just openly admitted that many people at Blizzard use Oqueue when responding to the Raid Finder changes in 5.4.2. So I guess they will need to ban themselves.

    My oQueue does a thing where it removes my <afk> tag, even if I type /afk. Or is that another addon? I don't remember it happening before oQueue.

    Regardless, it's never stopped the game from logging me after inactivity.

    Anyone know if there are plans to continue development after WoD's release? I don't trust Bliz's planned group-finder.

    IF and this is a BIG OL IF, oQueue removes the afk from a person, this is certainly not a "function" or a "feature". There is not any kind of "keep me logged in feature", that people are trying to say there is.

    Anyone know if there are plans to continue development after WoD's release? I don't trust Bliz's planned group-finder.
    There are absolutely no plans to stop development of oQueue as long as blizzard does not straight up break its functionality to promote their group finder.

    If a blue poster community manager openly admits that they are using it themselves then I think it's safe.

    "A lot of players are drawing parallels between our new Group Finder and the oQueue addon, and that's a perfectly valid comparison. We've been thrilled to see how people have taken to oQueue for finding organized groups, especially in 5.4, and feel that's the sort of thing that the game really should be providing to all players. We're not trying to "kill oQueue"; in fact, a lot of us use it ourselves."

    Just disable the auto afk remover thing (if it even exists).. I've never even noticed the option tbh.

    Using oQueue does not violate the terms of service, no.
    Now that we have a blue on this (which is on the front page right now) can we please see this thread closed? Far too much feeding of the trolls.

    I was actually coming in here to clarify it as well. OQ is NOT a ban-able offense.

    Now that we know for sure that OQ isn't a banable offence.
    What I'd like to know is if making troll threads and fueling it for quite some time is ?

    I've been quite late for this discussion but Blizz have been promoting OQ a few times in the past already, and also how long does it take you to walk your dog... 3months ? Because that's what it would take them to investigate and sanction you.
