    Wait. What were we talking about? I've actually lost all interest. I've never actually experienced tl;dr before, but you've managed it.


    Well done.

    I'm sorry, "Pro-bono" lawyers still draw a salary. They only do pro-bono work if they can afford it. Show me one fully pro-bono lawyer that does not take money from the firm for their work, that isn't independently wealthy.

    Soup Kitchen volunteers, Volunteer Fire fighters, all of your examples.

    They're all volunteers.

    If they suddenly stop providing their service, it is not 'unprofessional'. What -is- unprofessional, is your expectation that things happen the way you want them to, purely because you consume a freely supplied service.

    There is no contract signed, no Terms of Service agreed to. Merely "Here is an addon that I find useful. It works for me. If you want to use it, feel free." Take the service as it is provided. A freely offered one, with zero strings attached.

    Authors write their addons to solve problems -they- are having. Not you, the completely unentitled stranger on the Internet. If it also solves a problem you are having, then that's a nice bonus for you. It really doesn't affect the author at all.

    Quite simply, if you want something done right, do it yourself. Change the XML, tick that box.



    Physician, heal thyself.

    Ugh.

    "Unfair"

    Tuller can do whatever the hell he wants to with his points. You have no entitlement to decide who "deserves" more than anyone else. If he wants to suddenly decide that he'll donate them all to the Salvation Army, there's not a single one of you that can gainsay him.

    If you find it unfair, go earn those points yourself and then award them.

    The version on WoWInterface still works, and you can just have Wau ignore the folder by putting a .svn folder in there

    I've pretty much stopped playing WoW due to a combination of an unfortunate formatting incident and a general burnout/disillusionment about the game, so development may be sparse if at all existent.

    Current state of affairs is that you can create/delete bars, reposition, link to frames. They still need to be hooked up properly to events and honour bars need fiddling with. Anyone who wishes to take over development should feel free =)

    Sorry folks, but unless WotLK really blows my socks off, I'm not going to be playing WoW for a good while.

    I'll make it so that it's 0-75k, but will switch colours upon reaching your nominated target honour.

    And have two modes, one that scales up to the cap, and one that scales up to your target.

    That's an interesting one.

    I've not thought about it, really, what numbers do you want, and why those numbers specifically?

    Thank you!

    Now, despite the fact that this is no longer -just- a developer forum, and yes, there are users that use it, but I'd like to think that they're not some of the rabble that appear on some addon sites, and actually have some concern towards using efficient mods and what makes an addon more efficient/effective/etc.

    Not someone who would be swayed directly by "X of Awesomeness cause I said so" (example just -pulled- out of nowhere, I know, I know).

    This -was- the original basis of Ace, to -teach- good coding and I'd really like it to head back in that direction with examples we can be proud of in terms of well written addons.

    If you want to appeal only to end users, post to one of the addon sites. The Ace forums were originally developer focused, and still remain, to a large degree that way. Yes, end users -may- read them, but we have, in no way changed the focus of them -purely- to the end user.

    And as such, don't treat the people reading these forums as ones that need to be tricked into using an addon by pure fluff description alone. Convince us through good coding and useful options, none of which the first original post contained, and thus the complaints.

    Thank you Quibbles for actually detailing what the addon does, rather than "This addon does 'stuff' better than other addons. No, just 'stuff' 100 times better. like 'stuffx100'".

    Nothing to do with me, and so nothing will be applied. Wait for Xparky to settle then offer translations for that.
