btw, we could have kept WAU in all honesty. The SINGLE biggest change that was made is the repo split up. Keeping WAU was entirely viable, if you know what drove it - keeping that going was totaly doable. ~!BUT we teamed up with curse.com in the proccess AND WAU had no current maintainer / developer to keep it going. So it died.
.... And I've tried to be good about searching for the error messages before I post in any forum. Plus I've spent time reading not just these forums, but forums in other places to learn as much as I can so I can troubleshoot things on my own. And to help out guildies who are having problems getting mods working.
I am a user, and a coder of other languages. I've done some reading on lua, but I'm not sure that I will ever write any lua code. Does that make me bad or unwelcome cause I'm not a dev?
Well, to clarify, we are a Developer community. One cannot develop with out beta testers.. you would be considered a tester after a sort. Your fine, infact belong to a needed part of this community, "The Beta Testers" :D
The only thing that makes one unwelcome here is when one gets it in their head that they are entitled to something that they are not, and gets angry over it.
azmodanrom sorry to burst your bubble, but Omen was stable about 1 week or so after the major patch, and BigWigs hasn't change that often either.
The authors are quite consistent about that. A slight timer adjustment here, a + or - sign there in threat, but all in all. You could prolly could several weeks if not months with out updating either and be JUST fine. In fact the vast majority of changes to both addons, as well as most of the svn, was localization changes. Now if your a non-enUS locale, then i see your point.
Im sorry, i have to laugh at you people that get flustered and pissy about 3 vocal people on the forums that are talking about a user base that deserve the abuse for being stupid. These are the kind of people that call the highway patrol because they got a flat tire, expecting them to be responsible in fixing the flat tire, when infact they need to talk to a mechanic and leave the highway patrol out of it.
Quite frankly if your not smart enough to use the search box or look though a the last 2 pages of an addon thread, then ask a pointed question == you deserve the flaming. But alas, this is a small minority that also happens to be extrordanarily vocal and suffering from 'entitlement' effects.
I got no feelings for them. However, fact remains, we have moved, we're not going back, enough. No amount of opinion is going to change that. Be part of the soloution or move on.
