Because I thought it was still being maintained by the author.. On every patch I first check what addons are listed as out-of-date, then I load out-of-date addons to see what works and what doesn't. Since KillMeterFu has worked fine up to now I just thought the author had forgot to update the TOC.Quote fromBut if you edit the .toc yourself, you're not weeding anything out. You are, in effect, checking "load out of date addOns". The hard way.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
With "Load out of date addons" off I avoid loading addons that will most likely bug as the API changes.. Since I update my addons daily, most maintained addons that break on patchday pass the out-of-date filter in a couple of days.. Addons that stay out-of-date for a month or so I usually delete, but I liked KillMeterFu so much that I kept it (hey, it worked)..
