    posted a message on Unauthorized Addon Sites - Authors Beware!

    Interesting. I will not be downloading and installing their software, but neither did I see a way to browse any hosted addons. I wonder if forcing users to sign up for a "free" membership to even access the addons is a violation of Blizzard's addon policy? You can download from Wowinterface and Curse/Curseforge/Wowace without signing up or being forced to use an installer client.

    posted a message on Prat 3.0 Chat Mod Framework

    I get zero errors with Prat, not even with chat bubbles. And while I am not the author of Prat, I am curious what kind of errors people are getting. If you could copy/past a bug report from BugSack/Swatter/Bugger/RealUI_Errors that would be fantastic.

    posted a message on Commit has duplicated previous release, has no change log

    Yep, raising the dead too. I have seen this on various projects of mine as well. However, it does not happen all the time, even with the same project. When it does happen, it duplicates the last commit, whether it is an alpha, beta, or release, whereas the new version could either be a commit or a tag.

    posted a message on GatherMate2_Data - Collaborative Data Gathering

    FYI, just to be clear, the Wowhead Client is working and does upload data to the website. It takes time for the humans to parse and verify the data before it propogates and displays on the various Wowhead pages. I have no idea what that timeframe is, but I can't imagine it takes more than a few days. The humans probably don't parse the data daily, as that would be an insane job, and probably do it in batches, but again, I have no idea how the humans work on Wowhead.

     

    Now back to being my regularly scheduled Night Elf. No mohawk, sadly :(

    posted a message on GatherMate2_Data - Collaborative Data Gathering

    That's just it, the link is dead; I can't upload anything, even though I have much more data now, especially since I started Archeology and am questing and gathering on the Broken Shore.

     

    I do upload to WowDB and Wowhead via the Twitch app and Wowhead Client, but Nevcairiel hasn't parsed the data in quite some time.

     

    In the Twitch app (used to be Curse App, and Curse Client before that) click the big cogwheel at the client's top right, then Settings, Addons, General (not game specific) and at the bottom enable WowDB Profiler. I am not 100% certain this is working, and I did send a bug report to Twitch/Curse because it says last updated "never".

     

    To use the Wowhead Client, all you have to do is install it, and it adds a new addon which gathers data. Check the client's settings on how and when you want to upload, whether automatically upon game exit, or manually when you remember.

     

    The only other method of updating GatherMate2_Data is spamming poor Nevcairiel with file links from your Dropboxes, but I am fairly sure he would not appreciate that.

    posted a message on Global tables

    Your attachment is empty. I assume you are talking about

    local name, addon = ...

     Just like it looks, these are local variables. name is the actual string name of your addon, like "Bartender4" or "SmartRes2" and it comes from the folder name within Interface\AddOns; addon is a table used for passing information to all Lua files in the same addon. You could pass localization via addon.L or use it for registering events or functions. It would be the same as writing

    local name = "MyAddOnName"
    local addon = {}

     Being variables, you can name them whatever you wish, and they are local to your addon.

    posted a message on Incorrect download counts

    I was checking up on my Author Reward Points after tagging new versions of AdiBags_Hearthstones and SmartRes2. Yay for more points because people have installed the new versions!

     

    However, the correlating number of downloads is surprisingly low. The 7.1-release3 build of SmartRes2 says 805 which might be correct, but doesn't match the jump in ARPs.

     

    And build 7.1-release6 of Hearthstones is ... 17?!? That definitely is not matching up to the increase in ARPs.

    posted a message on Invalid value for "key" localization parameter (enUS)

    Also, while it is okay to translate the title if you so wish, keep in mind that it is the name of your AddOn; it is a proper noun, as it were. You'd never tranlate "Red Hat Linux" to "Chappeu Rouge du Linux" in French. In French, it is still called "Red Hat Linux" because that is its name. Same with the company Apple. It is not called Pomme in French.

     

    Same goes for Crazy Arrow Hide. That is the name. I do translate the Notes field, as do some other authors, but many others do not. Since the Notes show up in tooltips via the character select --> AddOns button, and in game via Esc --> AddOns, I personally think localizing the notes is a good thing.

    posted a message on Invalid value for "key" localization parameter (enUS)

    I just looked at your ToC keys for the localization, and you don't have anything for "Crazy Arrow Hide", so it is saying invalid key because that key simply does not exist in your table.

    Which addon, and post your development version of your toc code.

    posted a message on GatherMate2_Data - Collaborative Data Gathering

    Using GM2's options, you might have enabled all the tickboxes, but what about the drop down options "Show with" ... profession/tracking/etc? For example, if your character is an herbalist, and you have the drop down to show when tracking, yet you disabled the tracking of herbs via the minimap, then nothing will show.

     

    Also, if you have a Broker display like NinjaPanel, ChocolateBar, TitanPanel, etc, there is a GatherMate2 plugin that looks like a poppy. If you mouse over that, the tooltip shows options to show/hide icons on the minimap and world map. Perhaps you have entirely hidden the icons.

    posted a message on Spell Replacements and GetSpellInfo

    Just curious... Yes, some spells have been replaced, but why would you want to know which spells have been removed? I'm asking because the new spells do not match up to the old spells; they have different effects. And some of the old spells are not even in the game anymore.

    posted a message on Auctioneer for Vanilla?

    No. Curse, Curseforge, Wowace, and all related websites are Official Blizzard Fan Sites, and that means supporting private servers is against the Terms of Use for World of Warcraft.

     

    You will get zero support unless/until you play on live servers and use current addons.

    On a side note is it normal that after I press import, I can't press it anymore before relogging?

     Yes, because you have already imported everything.

    posted a message on first addon, trouble with minimap button

    The easiest way is to use LibDBIcon-1.0, although I think it assumes you are also using LibDataBroker-1.1.
