I started using nQuestLog ever since the MonkeyQuest became vapor (and so did the author).
I think the only thing I'd like to see added is the ability to set the font face... After what's happened to ClearFont2 with the removal of the SML embed, I found you can't change the font in nQL and it sticks out like a sore thumb if your other mods all use altered fonts, unfortunately.

Kind of interesting seeing someone with a custom UI using the default fonts... doesn't seem to be done very often. :P
I'm using Fritz Quadrata...is that the default? lol *shrugs*
I use what's clear and easy to read. My preference is Skurri, but I couldn't get, for the life of me, any fonts to "take" on the tooltip mod, and I hate having multiple fonts...it detracts from the overall look, to me.

This is a SVN go lookup what SVN is. this is not a download site to stable releases, thats what wowinterface and curse is for.
The larger issue, I think, is that for all intents and purposes, WAU and the SVN it links into, is for more or less stable releases. Why? Your own applied logic. Most, if not all, of the mods that appear on WoWAce, never see the light of that "stable release" listing at places like WoWInterface and Curse. Never. Most decent mods can only be found here, regardless of their level of usability.
While I don't agree with how some people have handled themselves (the "flamers"), I can fully understand and sympathize with their positions... Regardless of the CYA wording of the "fine print" on WAU, it's generally used not as a source of beta mods that may work but have minor to major flaws, but as a one-stop source for more or less stable versions of mods or mods clearly marked as "mostly broken -- don't use" (and there are quite a few of them clearly marked as such).
Frankly, until CowTip came around, TinyTip was the only game in town for a tooltip customizing mod that was more or less fully functional...the only one... This "go to WoWInterface or Curse if you want a full release" malarky actually only rarely can be applied when you consider the mods available through WoWAce.
To Thrae specifically:
While I do appreciate all the hard work that's gone into TinyTip (at the time, it was the only tooltip mod that was an acceptable replacement for TipBuddy), I'm going to check out CowTip. Thank you for the basic info on it. Keep up the great work and hope to return to using TinyTip in the future.
