I'm looking for at least two people who would like to help me lead an addon project. My previous addon, BGSoundAlerts, unfortunately has to stop and I'd like to remain in the "business". But this time, I'm going for something completely new and I'd like to work with a team. What I need are two other people willing to try their hand at helping me code a new addon named Tactition.
Tactition will be a raid manager which allows the raid leader to easily assign roles to the rest of the raid while displaying to each player in the raid his/her objectives (depending on his/her role). As an example, for the Vashj fight, people who are on the elementals duty will get objectives like "Kill the elementals", "Kill the poisoned elemental", "Loot the Poisoned Core" and "Use the Core to disable the shield". The good thing is that all this is displayed to the people who are assigned this role, therefore avoiding unnecessary information being displayed to other raid members.
For people who are interested, it is preferred that you have worked on one other addon which you made public before. Simply send me an e-mail on [email]email@example.com[/email], with some background about your "addon career", if you want to give it a try or for more information.
Perhaps you could post some previous experience as well, in addition to one addon.
I post BGSoundAlerts due to it being my "best" one. I also did BGTextAlerts, Ultimate DKP, Healthstone Warning and most recently Monster Watch. BGSoundAlerts always turned out the best of them all and I'd like to try something new.
I thought about (and even started) writing a similar addon about a year and a half ago. I'd planned for it to have not only the roles you describe, but awareness of phases and events in a boss encounter (i.e. Magtheridon cube click rotation when such was needed, or Netherspite beam rotation). These could be configured either by time (i.e. 45 seconds after engage), by trigger (i.e. specific emote, or boss begins casting a specific spell), or by aura changes on a specific person (i.e. Netherspite beam swap once the first person's debuffs reached a certain point). Unfortunately, shortly thereafter I quit leading raids and joined a higher-end raiding guild, and nowadays I have neither the time nor the interest (or even the ability, as I don't lead raids and don't have time to run PUG raids) to help with such a project.
I'm certainly willing to be a sounding board for ideas, though. :)
