    Thanks for keeping Archy going - it has long been my  sole Archeology mod and definitely the most full-featured.   I look forward to seeing what the new version for 8.x and beyond will bring!    

     

    I certainly will enjoy all of our old Archy favorites and functionality return, updated for the latest expansion, but I am unaware if there are any other features from other mods that could be useful  here.   As Myrroddin mentioned above,  new features (ie perhaps GatherMate2  support, HUD) from the likes of Archeology Helper could be nice.  However, I recall that since the mod was last updated,   HUD style addons were significantly nerfed by Blizz in the API during Legion, mostly to stop HUD projections/"Drawing" during raid encounters etc, so it may not be possible to implement today.  I would also check out https://www.curseforge.com/wow/addons/minimal-archaeology - which is one of the last remaining up-to-date Archeology mods. I am not sure it has any features that Archy does not, but it is the closest alternative I've heard of others using while Archy is down. 

     

     

    Just a few words of encouragement while the BFA rewrite is ongoing. Keep up the good work and thanks again!

    Thank you for this excellent addon!

     

    Unfortunately, since 7.3 (and subsequent 7.3.5) it seems there have been a number of features unsupported and other glitches, most of which do not produce a  Lua error.      For instance

     

    "Gold" Dig sites not detected  by Archy - None of the "gold shovel icon" dig sites appear on Archy's tracker or other menus  (https://www.wowace.com/projects/archy/issues/678 )

    Inaccurate solved  item counts  - almost all report as 0 on Archy UI mouseover, but if you open the native Archeology journal, it shows the proper, non-zero amount (https://www.wowace.com/projects/archy/issues/676)

     

    Others report missing dig sites in pre-Legion areas or other problems, but I've not yet been able to confirm these myself, unlike the above two.

     

    Is Archy still in active development? If so, it would be appreciated for an update to fix  these few issues. I  look forward to Archy being a staple addon for use into the next expansion! Thank you!

    Now that 7.3 is here I'd love to see Archy updated with comprehensive support for modern features. For instance, during 7.2.5 I noticed it did not notice "Gold shovel" dig sites at all on the site tracker. EDIT: In addition, it doesn't seem that Archy is able to properly count artifacts collected, as many I've finished several times show as "0 Completed" when moused over in Archy, but on the built in UI show the actual amount of completions.   I'm sure with all the new areas in 7.3 and those added back in 7.2, 7.2.5 etc... an update would be most helpful.

     

    Edit: regarding a new (ish) feature, I'd much rather have everything else working and up to date first, but I am curious if it would somehow be possible for Archy to show all the possible artifacts, found by a given player/account or not, in some sort of  database? For instance,  if I want to see what blues or purples I'm missing, or how close I am to finding all of the Night Elf items, or in the case of WoD and Legion how many Pristine quests I have left to do/find etc?   If there's some built in functionality or other mod already doing this  better that's one thing (or perhaps Archy can hook into it?), but if there isn't it seems like a nice feature for the collectors.

     

    It is certainly one of my favorite Archaeology addons and I've been using it pretty much since the profession was introduced, so its sad to see  it fall behind.    Please give some info on the feasibility of an update  as soon as possible and I thank you for your time
