    posted a message on Dewdrop-2.0 without excessive table creation/deletion
    Quote from Edgy »

    The menu configuration sounds complicated, but in practice, the actual interface is easy to navigate and logical.


    I stopped reading here.

    Drop down menus should never, ever go deeper than 2 levels. It is extremely bad interface design. This is part of why DewDrop is evil; it invites people to create horrible interfaces. Just because some other authors made the mistake of eternally nested drop downs (looking at you, BigWigs...) doesn't mean you should!

    Stop now before it's too late.

    I think what all you naysayers are missing is Babble is a giant pile of evil shit and every excuse to get rid of it should be taken advantage of.

    Tekkub, I think he's talking about clearing the focus whenever the user clicks anywhere else. In most operating systems, when an input box has the focus, clicking anywhere outside of it clears the focus.

    14x14 looks slightly better, but you have to deal with overlap and stuff.

    Another thing, Shadowed, {spellid} is bad. At the very least, use {spell:id}. However, I'm still against it because it's garbage that people without your addon will see.

    Edit:

    On top of that, to implement either, you need to put a metatable on the blizzard icon list or use an AddMessage hook. Sticking a metatable on the blizzard list is bad because suppose you have several addons putting a metatable on it, you end up with a lot of extra overhead on EVERY CHAT MESSAGE. If you use the AddMessage hook, you should pick a different format so the blizzard parser for {} icons doesn't even try to match it.

    Also, you can't texcoord on embeded textures. Blizzard cheated on the raid icons and split them into separate textures.

    {SML-whatever} is a bad idea imo. In an addon, don't ever dump things to chat that cause users to see gibberish if they don't have your addon installed. This is part of the reason we got the addon comm system. In fact, players who don't use your addon can report players sending excess {SML-icon_4_lol} to a GM.

    The following things are NOT acronyms and should not be written in all caps: Ace, Ace2, Ace3, Lua.

    posted a message on Rock + Ace3

    If that means "keeping an open mind", then it is a good thing. On the other hand, it is hard to ignore the immense success of Ace2 - no matter how jealous a couple of the Ace3 developers obviously are that ckknight was able to achieve it and they were not.


    Be careful, sir. You are trolling and insulting me. People who insult me on these forums get banned. This is your last warning.

    posted a message on so... about wowinterface.com
    Actually, WoWI isn't owned by IGE at all. WoWI is part of the Zam Network (includes all the MMOI sites, Allakhazam, Thottbot) which is owned by Affinity Media. Affinity Media is owned by RPG Holdings. RPG Holdings owns IGE.

    As you can see, they are completely seperate.

    As for not using the site, HELL NO. WoWI has for a long while been the best addon site, and I don't intend to move my addons from there because I dislike something their owners' owners' owners' own. It's similar to refusing service from Pizza Hut because you dislike the business practices of KFC (KFC and pizza hut are owned by Pepsi).

    I'm also pretty sick of people bringing this up like it's new (or relevant) information, but that's neither here nor there.

    Edit: There are more layers between the company that owns IGE and the company that owns WoWI than I realized at first. I have corrected my facts.

    posted a message on GPL licensing of addons and libraries

    taking without giving flies in the face of community software development)

    I agree with that statement; I personally have been licensing my newer addons with the full GPL. However, I do not want to force anyone to pick any specific license. It is up to the individual author to pick their license.
