    Makes sense then.

    One other thing I should mention -- not sure if I have already -- but LCD4WoW changes/tags aren't being reported to #wowace. Not sure if this is related to the packager issue or not. I made sure it's set to report at any rate.

    Actually, nobody told me to delete any tags.

    And what exactly was I told not to do? o.O Someone said if I changed the repo on my library, then it would break addons that embed it. Nobody said "if you touch your project in any way at all, then you'll break it."

    As far as whose fault it is that the packager breaks, then you'll have to look to the devs whom wrote the thing. Don't blame users.

    Well, it has happened before, and it took someone in iRC a matter of moments to fix...

    Seems someone would fix the source, since it's so prevalent and such a nuisance. Did Curse cut the funding or something?

    Good luck getting this fixed. They're "busy" it seems. None of this is your fault. The packager does this and has been doing this forever. It has something to do with converting repositories... or that's the excuse I was given recently. Seeing as you didn't convert yours, then I'm not sure what it is. People act really incompetent though when it comes to this issue...

    This has all been a mess the past week. I moved my projects to GitHub, and the Wowace packager's been giving me fits. It started working though. Not sure how. I'm not complaining!

    I just added LibDogTag-3.0 support to StarTip. You'll have to select "Dog Tag" option for each line to enable it for that line. When enabled, just return your DogTag string like any other text you'd return. What you get is basically a dynamic DogTag. :)

    Somehow StarTip's working again. I disabled packaging, then I changed the repository to point to GitHub, and then I tagged, then turned on packaging again, and tagged twice and it was fixed. Doesn't work for LCD4WoW though.

    Also, I changed LCD4WoW and StarTip both to point to GitHub for repository pulls. The packager is still pulling from wowace's git repo.

    Happened to StarTip as well. >.< Reported that one too. Still haven't heard anything back from the report on LCD4WoW. Guess they're busy, or/and they simply hate me.

    Ok, it's creating packages that overlap each other, meaning the previous tag is being packaged with the current tag, but only partially, as in only one file out of -libs and -nolibs.

    Nobody knows? I'm about to just create a whole new addon if nobody can help.

    It packaged one tag, but stopped again.

    For some reason my project LCD4WoW won't package. The packager page shows blank, and I've made commits and tags, but nothing. I think it broke when I got it approved from experimental state. I made it "Planning" right after submitting for the approval, thinking that would stop it from going public since I found out shortly after submitting for approval that the project got vandalized.

    Either that or my hacker wants me to think someone at WoWAce/CurseForge is sabotaging my projects. *wrenched nerves*

    I have to warn people. StarTip, RotLatency, and the list keeps widening; it's all being moved off of Wowace.com's servers at the lowest level -- the repository. I have little faith in Wowace/CurseForge's management of security practices, as at least two of my repositories were vandalized, and I suspect a Gold Selling hacker as the culprit. I can't exactly hold that blame against WoWAce, however, because I was using a password instead of ssh keys. Somehow the pre-commit hook was manipulated is what I suspect, which if true, then it's likely just a simple flaw in the hook itself. The hook should have prevented certain characters I found in some files from being committed to the repository is what happened.

    I would suggest that Wowace ditch password protection in favor of ssh key pairs exclusively. If you're going to take an environment as hacker-delicious as WoW is, then you shouldn't be slacking on the security in the least. Every single addon that gets compromised has the potential to exploit some behavior in Wow.exe. Password protection isn't serious enough in this WoW environment.

    If you were paying attention up there you'd probably get the impression that I've simply been buying WoW gold. I mean why would a Gold Seller want to hack me out of the random? I bought gold on numerous occasions, and I'm not proud of it since it only causes more spam and thus more accounts getting hacked. It's an endless cycle with these people. They don't go away if they find an interest. It's an interest for the moment, and it is human nature to take notice of stand-out curiosities. This guy's been on my ass for a while. I keep reinstalling every time I get compromised. People have told me I'm paranoid. I don't have the balls to try and stack up against one of these hackers. I have no background in network security, nor the more advanced aspects of Computer Security's overall breadth. These people don't give up if they don't like you. So I've just been reinstalling my OS everytime I discover a compromise. I figure since I'm schizoaffective that I've become a target from vigilantes trying to prevent me from finding life suffice beyond committing terrible atrocities, as is expected from the schizo in today's society.

    The only security lesson I've ever had that matters is this: Don't Buy WoW Gold from Thieves. Not until Blizzard (Yes you thief! lol) begins selling it themselves. People buy gold. Period. There's a demand for it, and it'll be here till level 100. I am in agreement with LEAP, or Law Enforcement Against Prohibition -- I agree with them that the drug war is a dead horse, and something needs to change, perhaps even full legalization. I view the WoW Gold and Other Services industry as a network of "drug gangs," except these "gang member" interactions aren't going to end you up in jail. This is a grey-market, with all the worse aspects of a black market. These people are good. I've witnessed this myself as I'm trying to keep an install clean.


    It's indeed one specific detractor from WoW -- Trade Spam. Chat lines such as Trade were throttled to help fight spam. This way the stream of text doesn't fly by while the gold spammers are getting away with yelling at idling players inside and around the AH. It was also put in place to help cut back on personal attacks that get out of hand. These 'asshats' are as tired of the spam too. It's encouraging this bullish behavior to be so stressed and upkeep about a game for years and years. "Stop being lazy and grind like everyone else, noob!" Then comes the gold spam.... incessant... interesting... Gee, grind or buy? "Noob" huh. "I'll show them." *buys gold* *purchases leet epics and phat consumables* *still gets called noob* *Finds no more fun in an exploited game* Nobody likes to cheat -- not me anyways. Later he finds his account was hacked and all that gold he bought and saved back was placed again into the WoW Gold Industry to supply the demand. *obligatory authenticator purchase*


    So my suggestion to Blizzard regarding World of Warcraft and its enormous appetite for resources, and if I ever had a reasonable suggestion then this is it... I suggest that Blizzard starts selling WoW Gold themselves. Problem solved. Maybe we can save this game? People are tired of the grind and the bickering between "lazies" and "pros." We're well past half way through to 'The End of The World of Warcraft,' if it should ever come. You can't convince 25 casual players to form anything serious when people are dropping like flies for whatever reason. WoW for most players is all about unforgiving pugs, which everyone hates. Pugs get upset over loot rules, or you have everyone picking on the undergeared "noobs" that merely wanted to check out new content or test an addon. I'm not the best player, but I proved at the end of Lich King that I had it in me to perform well. I only had it in me to do that because I bought gold to supply my needs. Otherwise I'd be hitting the pugs, as sporadic as they are, trying to test to make sure this release I'm _just now_ ready to tag isn't going to crap out on a user in the middle of a raid. I just wanted to raid and program, raid and program. Is that all that WoW is? Grind-fest? Rep, dailies, weekly limits... It adds up, and then plus you have to have a business for yourself. Some don't have business sense to save a minnow. I gave in. Some things shouldn't be so easy, but offering official WoW currency in exchange for RL money will only fund more innovative WOW patches, and that alone is desirable by more than myself.

    So there are two ways that this will happen. Blizzard will start selling gold for RL dollars/yen/euro/bitcoin/whatever.... themselves, and that ends the actual fundamental-freaking-fucktoid problem that is WoW spam and hackers and the whole nine yards. Or they will keep the status-quo Strict Economy and I see a long road to ever reach level 100 cap. I hope Blizzard chooses my suggestion, because that would defund this whole grey-market. Every expansion release is just a stimulus for hackers.

    I should be banned, and you are probably thinking that. I couldn't find the time to keep myself topped off so that programming binges didn't drain me dry. And now I'm thinking maybe I don't want to do this anymore. I mainly want to raid so I can test my addons. StarTip will show you your raid/party members' LibFail-1.0 counts and display that if it's available. I need to test that in raid environments and make sure I can give LibFail's maintainers feedback if warranted.

    I want to finish these addons. It may take till level 100, but I want to create something using the the best of my knowledge, all from scratch and filled with tattered snippets I find online and in other open source projects, and from general programming knowledge. Lua is a great language; don't ever let anyone tell you otherwise. I'm thoroughly enjoying programming these addons. I didn't like the language at first, because 1 -- and not 0 -- was index root for allocated memory space. I was taught that you start at zero, because that physical address pointed to by 'table[0] = nil' is dead on that physical memory address. Take zero paces to the right, and I have my address, in other words.

    So I'm rambling. I'm hurt. Very hurt. All this time I've been sure someone's hacking me, and I finally find some hard proof. I'll try to communicate and see if it'll just end. I won't directly question anyone I suspect, because that's simply no-fair to burden innocent people with my sad paranoias regarding them.

    Sorry I contributed to the Trade noise.

    I finally get to tell all of this to my doctor, Dr. Ghai. I've been hiding it because I figured she'd note it all down as paranoia and delusions.
