I will play with it some more when I find time.
I played with this a while back. Based on my observations, the EffectRemoved event also supplies an Effect argument, but only if you've previously read the effects list (with a effectsObject:Get() loop). You can use that argument to get the name of the effect, although that is by no means a unique identifier. (Lots of different effects have the same names.) It may be good enough for the OP's purposes, though.
