Short Answer:
It will show you a list of who has the most honor so far this week from 1 to 50.
Long Answer:
Its a weekly honor tracking system for people trying to obtain HW/GM Status.
It does this in 2 ways:
    1. If you inspect someone you will record thier honor
    2. The add-on records your honor as well
Other Add-on users will xfer there totals for everyone from time to time. The script will be watching the line and only report on a user it hasn't seen in 5 minutes UNLESS its your honor that has changed. Then it is sent everytime you gain honor. This way everyone maintains the full table of every user in the system without flooding
This is why i need a little security to keep the bulk of people from fudging other peoples numbers.
I play on a server where everyone works together under a cap system so this will alert us when people have meet cap or exceed it. It can also lower cap levels if people agree to stay where there at (which happens on my server).
And yes this is my first Add-on attempt! LOL.

Subject: Re: Simple Encryption method

XOR may be just what you need.  It won't be easy for someone to type xor'd strings into the console on the fly.  Certainly it is still spoofable, but not in a convenient way.

Though, someone else could easily write an addon that could crypt/decrypt messages to the channel.

Note, I don't believe there is a way to really "hide" a channel in Wow.  It's basically an IRC type server on the backend.

Just curious, as a wow player myself, what kind of add on your working on?

Happy Hunting!
