    posted a message on Addon Data Sync

    I need some advice on the best way to handle syncing data across players. I am wanting to sync the most recent timestamp with everyone who's using the addon. Currently what I'm thinking is all players join a hidden chat channel and on an event, sent the current timestamp to the channel, updating all the other players timer. The problem I have is when a player comes online they need to sync back up to the latest timestamp. They would sent a message to the channel requesting an update to which every single addon will respond with their timestamp even though only the most recent one is required.

    Is there any way I can prevent this spam and only send the latest timestamp? Is it even a problem if lots of people send their timestamp at the same time?
