    There is no profit to be had


    Currently there is a chance at profit (in the form of beta entry or even auctioning it for real money).
    It's circumstantial but it's there nonetheless.

    At a guess 20% of new addons submitted to wowi are copy-paste addons.

    There's the cases of outright copy, where "authors" have posted other people's addons with a simple .toc /folder rename.
    I've already reported a couple of those that got through wowi staff filtering system.
    (ironically one of the "authors" banned for it was giving props to Shirik for stating that copyright infringements will not be tolerated blah blah")

    Then there's the fringe cases of people posting other authors working addons that haven't received maintainance for a while (they don't need it)
    with minor edits.
    Curse seems to be the primary source for this.. finding mods that appear to be abandonware and just posting them as their own.

    And the list goes on.

    The site is enjoying the increased popularity (I don't begrudge them that, always considered wowi the saner of addon hosting sites)
    but their filtering is set at the lowest possible level... only catching the most blatantly idiotic attempts.
    A simple rename seems to be enough to bypass it.

    As I don't have the inclination or time to do addon vetting myself I can't base my 20% quota on actual review of all new mods since the rush begun,
    but let's say it was close to that on a couple of days that I did check the 10 addons submitted for the day...
    (I do keep up with all 3 major addon hosting sites and quite a few individual addon pages,
    so I do get that "haven't I seen this exact thing recently"? bell ringing quite often)

    I don't much care about copyright but not acknowledging the source of your work is simply not right.

    That's the Achievements window, doesn't have anything to do with event planning.

    posted a message on DKP addon
    Quote from FuxieDK »

    IMHO, the worst thing about EPGP is, that over time, your DKP is "rotting away"..

    "worst" "best" doesn't enter here... It's a design choice to serve specific needs and can be disabled by the administrator if he so chooses.

    I'd advise you to read WhatIsEPGP before making blanket statements (look under "decay")

    posted a message on Kill Counter - Is there such AddOn?
    KillCounter by Iriel is what the name says :P

    KillLog Reloaded maintained by Waywocket in its latest incarnation is also worth checking.

    posted a message on Slam timer
    Quote from persheal »

    I dunno why, but it stopped right after I disabled it.

    Looking at the comments over the download site (Wowinterface) I don't seem like the only one having that issue.


    Ok I take it back.. I should have said "the version I'm using is problem-free".

    The problem comes from r13 (and later probably) attempt of the addon to take an automatic screenshot on boss death.
    If you don't need that feature I'd suggest staying with r12 per my initial suggestion.
    It's been a stable version in my experience, it has the slam timer feature you were looking for and no extra "fluff".

    I've been raiding with it before and after 2.4.3 and never had problems with the social pane.

    posted a message on Was wondering...
    Power Auras Classic also supports this with "Action Usable" activation trigger.
    Sound is also supported.

    It's a visual notification and not textual though, not sure it's what you're looking for.

    That doesn't sound like Slammer at all... but I'd report it to the author anyway.
    The addon doesn't touch the character or raid pane I don't see how it could cause that behavior.

    posted a message on MagicMarker - Raid Icon Marking made simple
    There's quite a few creatures spread around the world and instances that don't have a creature type.

    As an example the bugs related to the silithid invasion and other "extra-terestrial" mobs.

    (I do software QA as a living...)

    My condolences, used to be in the same line of work for 6years.

    Jokes aside try r12 from archived versions.

    Quote from Caellian »

    Any chance of an update including the Shattered Sun Offensive ?

    If you mean rewards and such, GrindStatus pulls those from PeriodicTable-3.1.
    I've submitted a patch for these a while ago and it's been included,
    so make sure your PT3.1 is updated and SSO rewards will show on GrindStatus.

    Slammer by vishnou00

    One thing I would suggest though is to look at the changelog and if the latest additions don't interest you
    pick a previous version from Archived
    (I'm staying with r12, it's bug-free and feature-complete for my needs I don't need the extra stuff added after it)

    r78030
    while killing some of the Netherspite trash (Ethereal Thief)

    I don't know if this would make any difference but we finished ZA first
    and then picked up a couple alts and went Kara to kill last 2 bosses without breaking /reforming raid.

    posted a message on Russian globalstrings
    I can't help directly but I don't know if a process like the following can

    Visit
    http://forums.wow-europe.com/thread.html?topicId=4672908883&sid=5

    You'll find the russian language pack downloaders for pc and mac on that post.

    After installing the language pack, the addonkit interface might be usable for extracting the globalstrings.lua?

    Two assumptions I haven't verified and probably too much trouble to go through.

    Only thing that comes to mind though until someone that's currently using the ruRU alpha obliges.
