    Trade Spammer Addon

    Hey Folks

    I am looking for an addon to post small texts into the trade chat, if i persay got 20 Stacks of Abyss Crystal i would be able to "spam" the trade chat every 5 mins or something like that. Its not meant as a spam addon to flood the trade chat, but like send a message every 5 or 10 minutes.

    KEEP AWAY TROLLS!!!

    See Ya, Jakob.

    There used to be an addon called 'trade secretary' for just that, however I don't think it's being developed any more and so probably doesn't work.

    Also, what's wrong with pressing a button every 5 minutes?

    Edit: I'm told 'advance broadcaster' works with the latest patch, sadly it's too much effort to link from my phone.

    Trade Talker used to be a good one, think it's broken now unless it got updated recently. I used Spammer not too long ago and while it was buggy it got the job done.

    i use two addons for spam, SpamMeNot and SpamThrottle. It keeps my chats pretty clear from spam / gold sellers and such.

    It strikes me like this addon would be in violation of Blizzard policy, as it automates a player action, and even if it weren't, it's not like you can sell/trade/craft automatically, so you'll still be playing.

    You're just lazy.

    It's not in violation of anything. Chatting is not a protected action.

    There are several rules on prohibited behavior in chat in the WoW TOS, lest you mean it that it's not protected from automation like killing/resource gathering/etc. is, in which case:

    Anything doable in Blizzard's own LUA engine is not prohibited by the ToU. Period.

    EDIT: OT:

    Code:
    local a = CreateFrame("Frame")
    a:Hide()
    a:SetScript("OnUpdate", function(self,elapsed)
        self.elapsed = (self.elapsed or 0)+elapsed
        if self.elapsed >= self.timer then
            SendChatMessage(self.message, self.channel, nil, self.data)
            self.elapsed = 0
        end
    end)
    SlashCmdList["REPEATCHAT"]=function(input)
        if input:lower() == "stop" then a:Hide() return end
        local message, delay, channel, data = input:match("\"(.+)\"%s+(%d+)%s+(%S+)%s*(%S*)")
        if (not message) or (not delay) or (not channel) then
            print("Proper syntax: "<message>" <delay> <channel>( <chandata>)")
            return
        end
        a.timer = tonumber(delay)
        a.message = message
        a.channel = channel:upper()
        a.data = data
        a.elapsed = 0
        a:Show()
    end
    SLASH_REPEATCHAT1="/repeatchat"
    SLASH_REPEATCHAT2="/repeat"
    How to use. Untested. Tested and working. Report back with issues.

    Make into an addon as linked above, then type
    Code:
    /repeatchat "message" 300 CHANNEL 2
    in-game. 300 is the seconds, 2 is the channel index. Make sure you have quotes around your message.
