    posted a message on Owner is no longer maintaining

    Phanx is listed as the current maintainer of Grid, and the last update was on May 11, 2018. That was only four months ago. She can more easily be reached by sending her a message on Wowinterface. This is her user page over there. If she is wiling to accept your updates, or even take over Grid, then click the Report Project link and follow the prompts. Provide all the information possible about your attempts to talk to Phanx, permissions or not to take over the addon, and whatever else is appropriate when you report it.

     

    Then a Curseforge file moderator will look into the situation and take it from there.

    What is the addon you want to continue maintaining? Post a link if you can find that.

    posted a message on libbabble-zone-3-0

    Best bet is to delete it and see what happens. Yes, you might find an addon that suddenly fails because it is looking for that library, but in theory all addons that used it long ago updated to built-in Blizzard code.

     

    If you do find a failing addon, chances are it is just as antique as LibBabble-Zone-3.0.

    posted a message on Archy

    Torhal, this might be a hell of an ask, but since you have to rewrite Archy anyway, here's my two cents: incorporate the visual slices or wedges feature from Archaeology Helper, along with GatherMate2 pin support. The HUD is incredibly useful, and it doesn't look like Oscarub is returning to update the addon.

     

    This would make Archy the ultimate Archaeology addon, with one-stop-shop features!

    Yeah, nothing wrong with posting hints, just as you have above. That's pretty generic stuff, which could apply to any addon using Blizzard's API. A pain in the ass, sure, but Blizzard loves changes for changes' sake.

     

    I get where they add or remove something from the game, but some changes make me wonder what they are doing. Such as the PlaySound change, mapIDs to whatever they are called now, or a myriad of other alterations that neither gained nor lost functionality. Just broke functionality.

    Hm, worse news. The source code goes to GitHub, but ends in a 404: Page Not Found error.

    Your best bet is comment on the development page for Rare Spawn Overlay. The addon is listed as Public Domain, so anyone can fix and update  it. It is unlikely the current author will do so, as the last file update was August 31, 2016.

    Anyway, happy to share if anyone needs it if someone can give me an idea on where to upload it to.

     You can't upload your fixes. _NPCSCan.Overlay is copyright All Rights Reserved. You can fix your copy, but you cannot upload it publicly. Torhal is one busy dude, but he'll get it working. Officially.

    posted a message on GatherMate2_Data - Collaborative Data Gathering

    I don't think this thread needs to continue Nevcairiel has pushed an official update on July 21, 2018 for patch 8.0.1. In the update, he ran the auto-parser to pull data directly from Wowhead and WowDB.

    1. First, do as you have been doing, and make sure you don't have "folder inside a folder syndrome".
    2. It would help to know which other addons you are struggling with installing.
    3. Have you enabled outdated addons via the AddOns button on the character select screen, then toggling the tick box?
    4. Did you know the Twitch App works for Macs as well as Windows, and it takes all the hassle out of installing addons?

    You are far more likely to get help faster by asking on Wowinterface's forums. The Carbonite community is over there.

    posted a message on HELP! Twitch is bugged for me. How to install addon?

    It looks like you have pointed the Twitch app to your Interface\AddOns folder. That is incorrect. You should point it directly to the World of Warcraft folder.

     

    This is exactly the same for all other AddOn updaters: Zygor, Minion, TSM, Wowhead, and Tuk/Elv.

    It doesn't appear to be protected, but I haven't looked too deeply into the cursor or inventory functions.

    posted a message on Old Curse Client not updating anymore

    I thought I would do some research.

    1. Twitch bought Curse Inc August 16, 2016 
    2. The Twitch App beta, which integrated addon support from Curse, launched March 16, 2017
    3. Full changeover from Curse Client v5 to the Twitch App occurred August 10, 2017

    That means that everybody had anywhere between four and 16 months' notice of the Curse Client v5's eventual demise. The replacement Twitch App may not have existed until March of this year, but if anyone applied logical thought to Twitch buying Curse, it was inevitable that a new client would be developed, simply because Twitch would want integration of its services into a singular app that also provided Curse's services.

    posted a message on Old Curse Client not updating anymore

    Okay, I have to admit this up front: I don't work for Twitch; I'm just a volunteer moderator. And if what you are saying is true, then perhaps there was or is a better way to inform people that the Curse Client was defunct.

     

    The only reason I have a standoffish attitude to the shock and surprise regarding the lack of support and end of life that may have taken people by surprise is that I have been around computers and software in general a long, long, long time.

     

    I have seen the end of DOS, various Windows and macOS versions, mobile OSes come and go, and to the point of addon updaters for games, I've seen them get updated over the years too.

     

    Way back in the day, there was the Wowace Updater before Curse had their own. Then Curse Client 2.0, 3.0, 4.0 (Windows only) and 5.0. Plus I've seen a couple of versions of Minion and a few independent updaters. Throughout all of them, there were notices posted from their respective companies. Maybe the notices weren't kept up long enough or weren't renewed near end of life for the programs.

     

    What I do know for certain is that in each and every case, months before a version was retired, a new version was released. As far as I am concerned, the existence of a newer program is a massive, can't ignore, crystal clear announcement in huge bold letters that it is time to upgrade and switch to the newer version.

     

    Am I missing something? That could be possible, but I honestly do not understand why the "sudden" demise of the Curse Client v5 is "unexpected" or "sudden" or "came out of nowhere" or "didn't let people know". As soon as the Twitch App launched several months ago, that was the bright flag announcement.

     

    To me, this discussion is similar to someone being surprised at Windows XP, Vista, 8.1, "suddenly" not being supported by Microsoft as soon as Windows 10 came out. Yes, I know some of those were stopped before 10, but that isn't the point. The point is that as soon as Microsoft released a new version of Windows, that new version was the gigantic billboard in Times Square in and of itself that told everybody that the prior version was going to die and that people need to upgrade.

     

    The Twitch App appearing as the downloadable updater was all the notice anyone needed. So again, I really, truly, honestly, have zero idea why anyone is mad or shocked. Was there insufficient notice in the v5 itself? Maybe, maybe not, but nobody could possibly miss that the v5 was not available to download months and months ago, replaced by the Twitch App.

     

    Oh yes. If I sound  like I "don't care", it is because I am baffled why this thread, the outrage, shock, and surprised even exists. Does that make me insensitive? If so, I'm sorry. I mean that. I am apologizing. But that still doesn't explain how or why people are shocked, mad, or surprised.
