RaidBuffStatus

389 - RBS:: is prepended even when the option is turned off

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Ensure that you have "prepend RBS:: to outgoing messages" unchecked in Announce options
2. Go into a raid and drop a soulwell, feast, or refreshment table (unsure if others do the same thing)
3. Watch as RBS prepends "RBS::" to all announcements and adds the spell link (although this doesn't appear in the options)
4. Scratch head in confusion

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
I expect that it will just say "[Toon name] has made us a soulwell." Instead it says "[Toon name] has made us a soulwell ([Create Soulwell])"

What version of the product are you using?
r653

Do you have an error log of what happened?
None was generated

Please provide any additional information below.
There doesn't seem to be an option in the Utility Announce menu for turning off the RBS:: prepend, so I'm assuming that the one in the Reporting menu also controls this. I might be wrong, but if so how the heck do I turn the RBS:: and the spell link off on raid reporting? Ack!

    It makes it easy for other addons to recognize RBS messages, so other raiding addons can avoid duplicate announcements and chat addons can more easily filter them if the user doesn't want to see them.

    I can understand the spell link (and I like it more now that I've gotten used to it), but out of curiosity how does prepending "RBS::" to the report help reduce spam?

    Both are intentional additions, to assist in spam prevention.
    They are not optional.

    I went and looked at the changelog for the version before mine and I see that you've added the prepend into annoucements on purpose. I know this is an alpha version, but any chance of that being turned into an option when it's fully released?
