Census 4.2.1 Release

Rollie

 
A minor update release. This will fix display of 3 or less results, and properly process them as well!

i've installed this but it still shows requests with three or less results in the chat plus doesn't process them (the shown chars aren't saved in the census.lua)

update is loading correctly tho. it shows 4.2.1 as version
Rollie says:
November 25,2008 at 17:56
Did you install the latest before running the game? What language are you playing on?
DM. says:
November 25,2008 at 18:36
I'm getting it as well...

And having Prat disabled doesn't help... :(
Rollie says:
November 26,2008 at 2:25
bleh, wtf...
Rollie says:
November 26,2008 at 9:15
DM -

Okay, so I make sure I'm using the latest version and it is working just fine for me.

Do you have Verbose on? If so, it will still display it.


bardiir - You are playing on german servers, right? There could be a translation problem here. Can you give me an example of what is still showing?
BW~Merlin says:

Is this going to be version going to be released to curse?
Rollie says:
November 26,2008 at 10:28
Well, since there were possible problems with it, I was waiting for more confirmation on it so I could hopefully resolve it before uploading to Curse.
DM. says:
November 26,2008 at 12:24
I had verbose off.

I'll do more checking later when more people are online and it goes into the deeper scans
Rollie says:
November 26,2008 at 14:25
Yeah, if you can, give me the full line that is displayed, maybe even a screenie.
bardiir says:
November 26,2008 at 19:22
I had verbose on... i'll do some testing with verbose off :)
But that doesn't change the fact the people haven't been processed.
Yes i'm on german realms but with the enGB client. I'll try to get you a screenshot ;)

Verbose off:

Notice the results appear twice. It does this most of the time, but there are times when it will show up just once.

Verbose on:

Notice this time the results properly show up once.

Actually, my issues have gotten worse by installing this version. Instead of just death knights spamming with 3 or less results, I\'m getting all classes. Sometimes the groups of 3 aren\'t even the same class or zone--only the level is the same.
I don\'t have verbose turned on.
asmodai says:
November 27,2008 at 3:2
What DM says has been happening to me in this version as well as many versions before it. It only seems to happen with 3 usernames, which then get duplicated. And it repeats every once in a while.

To me this version is not worse or better in that aspect.

Well, DM, I am not 100% sure, but Rollie's upload now only accepts 4.2.1 data. At least according to the upload page. So if this is strictly enforced then Curse users are using the older addon and it would nullify the results. But then again, I don't know how strict Rollie is with that.
Djambo says:
November 27,2008 at 6:23
I also have the flooding occuring on my home realm, but I started scanning both an english and german realm (both verbose off) with no available data in my database and it's all quiet. Dunno wether this has some meaning. :?
Djambo says:
November 27,2008 at 7:4
Purged my db, logged in on my Main and the flooding starts again. Maybe this is related to an chat-addon like Prat which I use?
DM. says:
November 27,2008 at 12:19
I disabled Prat and it still happens.
asmodai says:
November 27,2008 at 18:37
The spurious text does seem more present with the current version yes (had a chance to look at it some more).
SannaSK says:
December 1,2008 at 0:20
I too get the extra spam on my screen, even when verbose is off. it looks exactly like DM's screens.


I'm also noticing an extreme increase in the frequency of seeing "waiting to send /who request" with this version. (I run CP silent on characters that i'm actually playing, but I leave it on verbose for my army of census-only alts, so i know how close i am to being done.) Before, maybe 1 in 25 /who's would return with a 'waiting' and require being sent again, but now it seems that as many as 1 in 5 /who's are getting a 'waiting' line.

Is there some way to add an extra second to the timing of when the mod sends the commands to the server?

Nah, it still allows uploads from the older version, it just updates to display the latest version. Perhaps I shouldn't have it say that only uploads from that version will work because it's not true.

Looking into this now to see if I can figure out why it's working fine for me and not for others =(
Rollie says:
December 1,2008 at 10:9
DM - THanks for the screenies. Are those WITH Prat enabled?
DM. says:
December 1,2008 at 10:24
Yes that is WITH Prat enable.
Rollie says:
December 1,2008 at 10:28
Ok, yeah, it won't detect properly with any kind of chat modifying addons running. I can look into supporting Prat since it is pretty widespread, we'll see.

Any chance you can get me screenies of the problem WITHOUT prat enabled?
DM. says:
December 1,2008 at 12:46
Ok yea... this time WITHOUT Prat it doesn't show up.

Ok, I think I finally have it, but I want a few others to play with it before I do an official release. If you are interested in checking it out, grab this version:

http://www.warcraftrealms.com/censusmod/CensusPlus-30000-4.2.1t.zip

In addition to eliminating rogue /who output (including Prat users), this version has a couple of other additions:

- Minimap button draggable anywhere on screen
- Very basic scan progress status on the main screen
- User option to enable/disable the logarithmic level bars

If you try it out, please let me know if you run into any problems!
DM. says:
December 2,2008 at 0:1
So far so good with the test version above.

Ty for adding the Moveable Minimap icon!!
But a one thing... Anyway to lock the icon in place to prevent accidental dragging?
asmodai says:

I'm going to try it as well since I do not use Prat but Chatter.

If you change that text in some way, maybe you want to remove the US-only limitation text on WR_Killingfields as well, since you've been accepting EU submissions for a long time now...
BW~Merlin says:
December 2,2008 at 3:55
The new version so far has been working fine for me with no spam names or any other problems so far.
twobits says:
December 2,2008 at 5:36
I saw something about you check for wholib being present... there is now a new wholib fyi, http://www.wowace.com/projects/wholib/ not sure if you can maybe use it, or if maybe it is what is interfering, since it seems the author of prat is on the author list for this as well. Would be nice if all who using addons could funnel through a common point though.
twobits says:
December 2,2008 at 5:37
Also, I am going to make my own script to upload the data files I think. Are you set up to handle compressed files ?

[quote:246f29e83d="asmodai"]I'm going to try it as well since I do not use Prat but Chatter.[/quote:246f29e83d] Rollie isn't scanning the chat for less than 3 results, instead pulling from the Who window. So it should work with any sort of chat mod.
Still going to do more testing tho :)
Rollie says:
December 2,2008 at 10:2
Yeah, I do plan to make sure it is compatible with the new WhoLib, and it's a high priority item, there's just higher ones atm =)
asmodai says:
December 2,2008 at 14:51
Well, seems to work ok for me thus far.
SannaSK says:
December 2,2008 at 14:58
4.2.1t is still giving me on-screen spam for 3 characters. Verbose is on (i know, why worry about spammy char names when i'm already choosing to be spammed : p). Prat is on the machine but disabled for my census-only alts.

Hm. turned Verbose off... haven't seen spam yet....
2nd census alt, verbose off, still no spam.
3rd census alt, verbose on gives name spam, verbose off hasn't yet.

btw the scan progress is fun! I wish I knew how to code Fubar plugins so I could see that on my main when I scan with verbose off.

You ask for spam.. you get spam!!! :D
SannaSK says:
December 2,2008 at 15:6
hehe, ok just checking : p.

also, when the scan is actually completed, the 'scan progress' still tells me there's 1 scan in the queue. checking this on other census alts.
DM. says:
December 2,2008 at 15:22
Yes I noticed this as well. It is a very basic progress. But I see where Rollie left out a statement to change it when its done the scanning he should add that before a release version is out in a few days.

You would be better off making a LDB capable plugin that way LDB display addon's, titan panel and fubar would be able to display the info.

Is Verbose on or off?
What chat mod are you using?
Did you try the beta version linked on the previous page in Rollie's post?
BW~Merlin says:
December 3,2008 at 2:0
Verbose is off, I am using prat (what ever the latest stable version is on curse) and I am using 4.2.1t census from this thread.
Rollie says:
December 3,2008 at 8:59
BW~Merlin :

Okay, I have a way to capture why it wasn't displayed, but the steps are a little involved.

If you see results displayed for 3 or less, follow these steps.

1 . Stop the Census, taking note of what was displayed so you can do a manual /who to get the same result.
2. Type /census track
3. Do a manual /who with the correct parameters to get the 3 or less results.
4. Observe the 3 or less results returned.
5. Type /census track
6. Log out of the game
7. Email me your data file to rollie(at)warcraftrealms.com

[quote:c4f53b54c9="Rollie"]
7. Email me your data file to rollie(at)warcraftrealms.com[/quote:c4f53b54c9]

which data file? the censusplus.lua?

it just did it to me too, verbose off, prat on. I did these steps but which file do i send?
DM. says:
December 3,2008 at 16:53
The CensusPlus.lua data file that is located in your Saved Variables folder. (the same file you use to submit data here)

If you open up this file there is a section named
CensusPlus_Unhandled = {



}

This is the section Rollie is mainly looking for.
SannaSK says:
December 3,2008 at 17:5
done and done. Altho I probably should have /prune 5'd the file or something. 12 meg... at least I have winrar.

thanks bunches. hope my file will help fix the issue.
SannaSK says:
December 3,2008 at 22:20
ok slightly confused. getting the spam with verbose off and prat on. opened up census, hit pause, wrote down the command it said it had in queue. stopped census. /census track. did /who r-Draenei c-Shaman 80-80 n-e, got 24 names in the who box and no spam in the chat box.

am i wrongly assuming that what's in the 'queue' is not the /who that has just been performed? because if my verbose is off... i don't know how else to find which /who was just sent to the server?
DM. says:
December 3,2008 at 22:44
What is shown in the queue is the /who that is currently being performed. The stuff you saw in your chat was from the previous /who. Just re-run the scan again and remember where it is.
BW~Merlin says:
December 4,2008 at 4:37
I sent my results in. From what I can see it seems that trolls are causing the problem for me (we at least for the moment)
uigrad says:
December 5,2008 at 0:56
I've been getting the 3-or-less spam with 4.2.1 also. But "/census track" is not recognized. It just spits out the options for census. Is there something else I need to do?

I've gotten the error with humans and with night elves. In all cases, it was 80-80, but that may just be coincidence.

I am using the debug option.
DM. says:
December 5,2008 at 9:2
Make sure you are using the test version [b:e83b2b27fe]4.2.1t[/b:e83b2b27fe]:
http://www.warcraftrealms.com/censusmod/CensusPlus-30000-4.2.1t.zip
Rollie says:
December 5,2008 at 9:26
Yeah, the track is only available in that version DM has linked. I had hoped it would remove all of the less than 3 output, even with prat, but apparently there is some other factors that I am not catching.
uigrad says:
December 6,2008 at 16:49
Ok, I'm still using the 2.4.1 version, and I think I found a bug. It looks like the /who requests were thrown into a short queue, and the results of a given /who request were being interpreted by census+ for a different request. Here's what I see at the end of my chat window from having verbose turned on:

[code:1:5892e096f2]Sending /who 21-30
Processing 16 characters.
Sending /who 11-20

Finished Taking data. Found 950 new characters and saw 1224. Took 11 Min 50 Sec.
[/code:1:5892e096f2]

I retyped all that, since I'm not sure where chat logs are kept. I left out the "Census+: " text, but all the lines are in the exact order from my chat log.

The whole census was borked from the beginning. For example it found more than 50 blood elf death knights at level 70, yet found only 22 total players at level 69, and whenever 3 or less results were given, they were all about 3 /who requests late.

I'm not sure if the error is repeatable. This version seemed to work fine last night when I used it.
uigrad says:
December 7,2008 at 15:22
I ran a number of censuses today, with 2.4.0 and 2.4.1, and both had the "delayed /who" problem that I described in my previous message.

I eventually came to realize that it was being caused by another addon of mine: WIM v3:

Do you require additional track information to be sent or what has been sent is enough for you to work off for now?
Rollie says:
December 8,2008 at 10:39
I was gone all weekend, I'm going to start poking around with it again this week. I'll also see what's going on with WIM.
Stadler says:
December 28,2008 at 12:10
WIM and SpamMeNot seem to have switched over to LibWho-2.0. Maybe thats the cause?
SannaSK says:
January 14,2009 at 15:32
What's the news on this? Should we keep trying to capture spam and send it to you?

are you looking in the CensusPlus_Unhandled area of the .lua file for the spam info? because mine never shows up there, and I wonder if it's because I moved the in-game filter for yellow server text out of my general chat box. Anyway, should I keep working on this or are you full up on necessary info?
Rollie says:
January 14,2009 at 20:27
Honestly I have a version that I need to release. Myself and DM have been running it for a few weeks now without issue so I'm assuming it's all good =x

Just a question is it possible to have census+ only scan lvl 10-80 and ignore 1-9. Or would that require some major recoding. Reason ask is all the gold seller lvl 1s that get added do mess up the numbers on our side at least. Like for me server have 6865 80s, 512 10s and 3136 1s. And that is using prune every 30 days.

Now I do a scan ever 10 minutes to get high capture rate of 10-80. Should I raise it to maybe 60 minutes to stop recording so make gold seller characters.

They work with the newest LibWho? Can't wait!
Rollie says:
January 16,2009 at 9:31
Well, I honestly don't know about that and that is something I shall test before I release.
