    I've got two suspicions about what's causing this symptom:

    1. MOTDstripper has saved a system message of the day at least once. When you login it doesn't recognize the current message as being identical to the saved one.
    2. MOTDstripper has not saved a system message of the day. Upon logging in it compares the current message to the saved (non-existent) one.

    We'll check both options. I'll need your help with that. Please find your MOTDstripper.lua SavedVariables file. It's within your World of Warcraft installation folder in a sub-folder along the lines of \WTF\Account\<account name>\<server name>\<character name>\SavedVariables\. You can open MOTDstripper.lua with any text editor.

    1. Is there a line starting with smotd_last_saved in that file, and if so, what's its value (the part enclosed in quotation marks)?
    2. When you login, is there a system message other than the message of the day, like for example, "Dungeon Difficulty set to %s." or "You are now flagged for PvP combat and will remain so until toggled off."? Any other yellow-text message?
    3. What's the current system message of the day, the one you actually get in-game?



    edit: One more thing I'd like to know. MOTDstripper assumes that the system message of the day is being sent to your client within one second of loading the add-on. How "immediate" is the system message of the day displayed when you login?
