Default Raid Lock checking...

OK so last night in a pug we had 25 people and one of the idiots was locked to BH 10, and no one could check, so we had to quid the raid, reform and zone in so that we could only invite unlocked people.

So my question is:

1) is there an addon that checks for other people's raidlocks?
2) if not, is it possible to inspect other people's raidlocks without them actively linking it to you?

My idea is to select a raid:

Tot4w -> al Akir

then the addon would do a quick check and come back with
2 people are locked to Al Akir

Cheers

Kaz

No and no. The lockout API is only available for the player's own instances.

We mulled over creating an addon that all our raiders would use, where a raid leader could query the other addons (across the addon comm channel), the remote addons could use the lockout API and then communicate back, etc. Then we decided it would be easier to teach people to type /raidinfo instead of relying on their own crappy memories.
