    posted a message on BlizzCon '09 UI Community Dinner
    With BlizzCon tickets all done (hence people pretty much knowing for sure if they are going to be attending BC) and with me home from my vacation and finally getting my feet back under me:

    I am looking into restaurants now and (obviously) having an estimate on the number of people interested in joining us would be helpful. The number of us going to it have been growing every year. The first year (05) we had about 10. The second year (07) we had around 24. Last year (08) we had around 40 people! So obviously, people are having a good time snarfing down food and hanging out with other UI geeks talking code over food since they keep coming to it every year and bringing more along with them.

    So, if you know you are going to BlizzCon and are pretty sure you want to hang out over supper one evening, please post here:

    posted a message on An Open Invitation to Authors and Other AddOn Hosting Sites
    As most of you are aware we have been working on a new project, Minion. Now that we have the API pretty much finished, we would like to extend an invitation to you to write a module for it for your site.

    1. Modules? What do you mean, modules?
    The way it has been written, anyone who wants to write a module for Minion to allow it to add functionality for their site will be able to do so. This means that there could be a module for it to work for Wowhead. Or Wowdb. Or for an author's personal site such as Norganna's. Or for Curse. Or wowui.incgamers. Or ….
    2. Why would I want to write a module for it?
    As we all know, end users want a single application to handle all of their AddOn updates, their uploads to the various Database sites, etc. Minion makes that request of users a real possibility.
    3. How is it fair to me?
    If you choose to write a module for it, you will be able show your own ads, as well as respect any site Premium/Non-Premiun membership controls you wish whenever a user is on the tab for your module.
    4. What types of modules can be made?
    • Modules that update addons from any site
    • Modules that upload data to a site (such as for datamining addons)
    • Modules that provide a new way to extract addons (such as for the RAR format, etc.)
    • Modules that present news information to the user (such as blue trackers, economy status, or anything else you think the user might want to know)

    If you have any other ideas of types of modules that might be useful, please feel free to request an API for it. We're always open to ideas and willing to work with you.
    The three things you will need to get started are:

    MMOUI Minion API and Documentation – the general overview of Minion modules
    Minion Javadocs – the technical documentation for writing modules
    Auto-Update API – the documentation for allowing your module to auto-update

    We have created a Minion Dev Discussion forum so you can get help creating your module, ask questions, report bugs, make suggestions, etc.

    Also, fyi, we have already been in touch with Norganna's team (Auctioneer, Gatherer, Enchantrix), Kaelten at WowAce, NeT at Curse, Rushster at wowui.incgamers, etc. telling them about Minion's module system and inviting them to write modules for their sites if they wish.

    posted a message on A couple of nasty bugs in Blizzard's code that probably should be reported...
    I'll make sure these reports get into the right hands. Just for future reference, if you find things like this, reporting them to me via [EMAIL="cairenn@wowinterface.com"]email[/EMAIL], PM here or on WoWI or a post on WoWI will guarantee they get sent to the proper people at Blizzard, instead of hoping that they somehow make their way there. The only reason I know about this thread is because someone linked it to me.

    posted a message on ZAM teams up with Child's Play to raise money for sick children

    The Child's Play Foundation has partnered with ZAM and gamerDNA to help children this holiday season. We are looking for donations to help the people in need.

    You can help by donating money directly or by completing a short quiz. Upon the completion of the quiz, you get a signature. This signature can be used to spread the word of this wonderful charity. (See my sig!!)

    You can do the quiz and donate money here.

    You can also learn about this wonderful charity here.

    Since 2003, over 100,000 gamers worldwide have banded together through Child’s Play, a community based charity grown and nurtured from the game culture and industry. Over 3.5 million dollars in donations of toys, games, books and cash for sick kids in children’s hospitals across North America and the world have been collected since our inception.

    This year, we have continued expanding across the country and the globe. With around 60 partner hospitals and more arriving every month, you can be sure to find one from the map above that needs your help! You can choose to purchase requested items from their online retailer wish lists, or make a cash donation that helps out Child’s Play hospitals everywhere. Any items purchased through Amazon will be shipped directly to your hospital of choice, so please be sure to select their shipping address rather than your own.

    When gamers give back, it makes a difference!

    posted a message on BlizzCon 08 UI Community Tentative Schedule, and Group Hotel Rates
    Friday 10 Oct 08, evening: General UI Community Dinner, exact time and place to be determined
    Sunday 12 Oct 08, day: Disney

    We'll also sort out somewhere to try to hook up with each other at the 'con itself. Like a specific table or something. UI community take over a corner somewhere or something.

    Works for everyone?

    Let us know if you are planning on joining us for the dinner or Disney here.

    Plus, because I really believe in taking care of our community ...

    Group Hotel Rate:

    I've been in discussion with the hotel I stayed at last year for BlizzCon (Cortona Inns and Suites) and arranged a group rate with them. So, if you are planning on going to BlizzCon, there is another hotel option beyond the ones Blizzard will be advertising on their site. The hotel is less than 3 minutes away from the convention center, so it's very convenient.

    Full details about the hotel rate here or on our front page news post here.

    Okay guys, I've sent in the first batch of names. If your ticket is: US 000001 - 000475 or EU 000013 - 000474, your information has been sent to Blizzard. Hopefully you will see your key within the week, but neither we nor Blizzard are making any promises on that count.

    We are continuing to collect names and will be sending in a batch to Blizzard once a week hereafter. If you haven't signed up yet or didn't sign up in time for today's list you don't have to worry, you still have time to do so. Sign up here.

    Also, don't forget about our Addons Gone Crazy contest. You have until 8 August 2008 to submit your funny, silly addon.

    Once you get the chance to get your mod ready for beta testing in the expansion, upload it to our WotLK Beta download category and check our WotLK Beta forum for possible feedback.
