    Maybe instead of a popup, a LDB icon that basically collects all of them into one spot - it's non-intrusive and easily ignored if you don't feel like dealing with it on raid day :P.

    While I see Phanx's point about people reading changelogs, I think the idea is to coerce more people into helping - so the changelog thing preaches to the choir, it's the people outside that need the pamphlets.

    posted a message on The New Curse Client
    I can echo the complain that not being able to pick the install location sucks. I have specific applications in specific locations to facilitate backups and system restores. Most sensible programs provide an option to not use install defaults.

    I can also confirm it takes an awful long time to load. I thought it died because I launched it and nothing happened for a minute. Mebbe it was just a first time thing, but at least a loading screen or something would be nice?

    I like that it seems to know when addons not available on Curse are updated on WoWI. I dunno how you pulled that off but it's pretty cool :). Saves me having to check my e-mail for update notices.

    Not sure I'm keen on the L&F though, compared to v3. It needs a lot more vertical space in a world where widescreen is commonplace. I end up having to maximize it but then there's a ton of dead space on the right side of my screen. Mebbe moving the bottom bar to the right side with a list of info might be better, and an option for single spacing over the doubled height listings. It feels off.

    I have no problem with a popup as long as it only does it once per update - although several addons doing that might get annoying. A feed sounds nice, although it would be better if I could view them all from one addon then. I don't use most of the launchers these addons come with, I prefer to remember slash commands to reduce clutter.

    They don't exactly take up much space, but making a batch file to remove them should be trivial if you must.

    I stopped running a lot betas after the Curse Client came out for the most part - it made discerning and getting release versions easier. Plus more authors seem to have moved to the alpha-beta-release mentality, rather than the alpha-alpha-prealpha mentality they used previously.

    It's also hard for me to report an issue mid-raid because alt-tabbing hasn't worked since Wrath came out. Disabling the addon quickly or ignoring the issue are far more convenient. And forget remembering the day after, because my raids end so late I go straight to bed! I've been putting up with the same two errors on login for weeks now because I haven't the time once I have time to play WoW!

    A pop up telling what's been changed and what you need tested would help with awareness. At least then, on the few addons I do run alphas or betas, I know what to look for and have a better idea of what's reported. Because looking through your tickets to find if an issue is reported is another thing I don't have time for! :(

    posted a message on 3.2.2 | Onyxia

    I had actually written that game off as another lousy Korean-style online grind. I might take a look at it now though.

    Truth about the key being experience though. I tried AoC, it sucked. I tried WAR and kinda liked it, but it killed my computer and I don't think it had the sticking power that WoW does with me. It's all personal, but I keep coming back to WoW. I dunno if it's the people, the game, or just the massive collection of digital crap I have.

    Anyrate, it'll be fun to fight Ony again.

    I have both an 80 resto shaman and an 80 holy/disc priest - I haven't found the numbers I get from DrDamage to be off by much, at least not enough to matter in the world of 40k HP tanks and 20k HP clothies.

    Get a bigger monitor? Turn down UI scale? Seriously why would you want the old crappy log...
    Really no point to attacking an idea you don't like, just ignore the thread ^^. Besides, lowering the scale makes the log harder to read, so I imagine sight issues might be one good reason for this.

    I also got a strange bar on the bottom of my screen when swapping specs. Reloading the UI was the only solution to removing it.

    Is there any plan to add the new totem grouping bars to BT? Or can someone suggest a simple addon to add them to my UI?

    EDIT: Actually, I see both issues have been handled, but now I'm confused by the versioning. Does the 4.3.3-16 Alpha include the 4.4.0 additions?

    It's possible it was on the PTR and removed.

    I'd post a thread in the official suggestions forum and the suggestions thread on the official UI and macros forum if they already don't exist.

    Hold down shift when moving.
    Might want to put that somewhere in big red text in the configuration panels. I spent hours looking for that feature a week or two ago before I found out about shift :P.

    Quote from yoshimo
    I wonder why all companys i know use IE instead of my lovly Firefox...
    Mainly because we don't want to have to support it. Unfortunately, the majority of users still use IE at home if anything, and therefore are more familiar with it. We don't exactly have many people whose job it is to surf the web, so honestly standard compliance isn't particularly important so long as they can access the sites they need for work.

    PitBull4 if you don't mind the heavier resource usage (it still uses DogTags, but its much better than PitBull3 was in that respect).
    Just to clarify, it no longer uses Dogtags by default. You can use them, but you have to enable them.

    PB4 is mainly being worked on by Shefki. ckknight does a commit once in awhile.

    Yeah, and Shefki is pretty active here on the forums and with commits. I tried PB4 awhile back and I couldn't use it, it's improved quite a bit since then. I would definitely consider it actively developed.

    It seems to still be fairly heavy memory wise - it's the largest non-database addon I run. But that's not a huge issue. I haven't turned on CPU profiling since I put it in, so I can't say how it is there, and that was the issue with Dogtags.

    Configuration is better than PB3. Given the number of bells and whistles there's still quite a bit of configuration, but the UI is decent. Luatexts is a little more difficult than Dogtags was if you're unfamiliar with lua, but there's some decent examples with the multitude of defaults.
