I really miss the "Aggro from (emeny)" text as well. I want to go back to the old version but that would be a pain in the ass. I don't understand the reasoning with taking it out. Maybe make it optional somehow with BanzaiAlert, but PLEASE please can you put it back in.
I don't understand why people make claims like "because if not I'd have no use for banzai and could just remove it" or "if this is not fixed I will use another addon instead of yours" or "you must fix this because some other addons does it" and such.
It pisses me off and Kyron is just the latest addition in a long line of people making such statements for many addons.
As fyi, i still do whatever i want with my addon folder without having to give any reason, as you do whatever u want with ur addons. IF i want/decide for good/bad/justified reason(s) to stop using an addon, i don't need your opinion. I am not asking you to update your addon, not even asking for a new useless feature... i'm only asking if you plan to restore a feature it has in the past.

This is not a statement this is a fact, if an addon doesn't do what i want, why would i use it, would you use a tea making addon when you only drink coffee ?
You seriously need some chill pills, or sex, you decide.
It's a great addon with and without the name of the player clicking on you. I have one suggestion: Is it possible to add an option to set the lenght of the notification to make it appear longer on screen? Or an Icon that pops up or taint the screen in red because I am very old and its too short/small for me ;(
Yeah, I'm considering fixing Banzai-2.0 so that it stores the targets again, but I'm not quite convinced how useful it is yet.

Personally, I don't think it was that useful, most of the time all you need to know is if you have aggro or not, not who from. But I guess it may vary.
Yes, it varies. But can be extraordinarily useful, depending on the circumstance.
For a tank, not useful (heck, tanks don't need to be running this ;)). Healing priests with a threat dump, not too useful as well.
But paladin/shaman/druid healers without threat dumps: very useful on those occasions where you are targeted so you can inform others and possible action can be taken, without having to look around and guess. Especially so for things that are hitting you long range.
Same deal with caster or melee DPS; much more convenient to be alerted to what's targeting you long range (or short range) than again spending time looking around and seeing what is (with Omen being unable to tell you as it might be a non-primary target).
Yes, for same-named targets the utility of it goes down a bit. But I definitely believe that having a target-type notification option as the prior BanzaiLib had is worth it overall.
Oh this addon... the lifesaver. I really hope it will be updated/work for patch 3.0 and wotlk, can't say how many times it have saved my life or a wipe, I'm so used to it I can hit evasion so almost never boss is able to land a hit on me when MT dies or gets disoriented or something, without it I'm blind :(
