    posted a message on [Bugs] possible causes: Pitbull, Cowtip, Quartz, AceEvent-2.0, Macaroon (nonWowAce)
    Have you tried disabling all of your AddOns, then enabling one, logging, check for errors, then enable another?

    I would do that first. That is one, usually accurate way to zero in on a problem AddOn. From the looks of things, it appears that Macaroon! is the one with serious issues. You can try to log in with only Macaroon! enabled to see if any errors are thrown. Same thing with Quartz and Pitbull.

    Regarding your PC BSODing on you due to AddOns, that is the first time I have ever heard of that. I think you may have another issue on your machine besides WoW AddOns that is causing the BSOD. Graphics drivers could be causing such issues as can bad RAM.

    posted a message on The New Curse Client
    Quote from Throndorin
    Hi,

    the Curse Client might be a good updater in the future. But the old one works much better in the moment.

    My opinion is: You have made a mistake, stopping the usage of wowaceupdater although the Curse client is not in a stable version.

    where can I get a alpha or beta of the curse client?

    Throndorin


    CurseForge for the betas of the Curse Client.

    The reasons why WAU was discontinued have been beaten on so much that the only thing left is a few broken bones. However in summary: it got too expensive and the changes to the SVN (from were files.wowace.com and WAU got their files) were WAY overdue and had to made. For more info, see this thread: http://forums.wowace.com/showthread.php?t=14343

    In regards to stability, yes the early builds were quite lousy. However CC has stabilized and actually works. In addition with the changes, you are getting stable "release" quality AddOns as authors have to tag their AddOns as release before you see them on Curse. By default, release versions are all you see listed on CC. You can download beta version if you wish. One thing to keep in mind is with WAU, almost all the AddOns downloaded with it where either beta or alpha quality and one build could break things horribly. With CC, you get release quality builds that the author feels will do what it says on the tin and not do nasty things with the rest of your UI.

    You can help out by downloading CC, using it and giving feedback. Things like "it sucks" don't help, clearly written explainations of issues you have or suggestions (that have not already been made) that you may come up with are what the devs need. If you find a bug, then file a ticket on CurseForge so the devs know there is a bug and needs attention.

    Kolie and Kaelten have been very responsive and listen to the community. They have made changes that the community wanted or have said why they can't make a particular change. If you don't speak up, then you really don't have any right to complain.

    Personally I am for keeping access to alphas out of the Curse Client. It is not really that difficult to manually download bleeding edge AddOns and install them if a user wishes to help test alpha code. However allowing the masses to have an easy (aka "brainless") method to downloading alpha code will lead to much more bitching (my @!%$ mod doesn't work! Fix it now!) from clueless users (aka "idiots") and author laziness. Let the idiots have their stable code in an easy to download form and let the real testers (who know their way around an SVN/Git/Hg repository) do the the testing of alpha code.

    Release and Beta Addons -> Curse Client

    Alpha code -> Firefox/Opera or SVN/Git/Hg client

    NO Alpha AddOns access via the Curse Client!

    Have I made my stance on that subject crystal clear?

    posted a message on Post cool PitBull layouts here!
    Quote from shugoryu
    I'm trying to import some styles and I get an error. The error says PitBull: Error importing layout:, Error importing layout made with a newer version of PitBull: 42341 > 1768.

    I have the latest release from here that was updated on November 3rd.


    The question is: How old is the layout you are trying to import? If it is a pre DogTags 3.0 layout, it will not work as there was some changes between 2.0 and 3.0, both in terms of tags and in the syntax of the Tag strings.

    DepositBox sounds awesome:

    I've yet to try it, but it could potentially be the thing that forces me to save my extra 5k for my warrior. xD


    Why the forum necromancy? This thread should have stayed buried rather than be risen from the dead. Where is there a Paladin when you need one?

    Quote from Zidomo
    Yep, what all the cool kids do. Manual downloads + Tekkub's addoninstaller FTW.


    Firefox + 7-Zip for updating my collection of AddOns (129 at last count). This also gives me a chance to "crapware" proof my AddOn installations/updates via the ol' Mark I Eyeball (Augmented) so I know I am actually getting a WoW AddOn and not something "interesting".

    Quote from Marsti
    especially if JavaScript is required (what shouldn't be the case IMO; I still don't see any acceptable reason why ads often use/require scripts).


    Site use scripts to either set tracking cookies into your machine or to display the content (i.e. Flash). Still any ad that REQUIRES scripts to run on my machine does not get displayed, period.

    posted a message on No Longer Able to Configure Khaos
    Quote from ldeanjames
    I agree with you, Lykofos, I wish there was a way to update all the libs that Khaos is dependent on, because they're what make Khaos, Khaos. I've even loaded the libs it needs, but it hasn't helped.


    The author, KarlKFI (AnduinLothar on WoWInterface) had released Khaos as a standalone mod at WoWInterface. Find it >> HERE <<

    The version posted is for 2.4 however there is a fix for the bug it throws: http://rapidshare.com/files/154435607/FireTree.zip

    All the libs needed are embedded within the mod.

    A user has also posted a fan update of the mod with the Firetree fix included:

    Quote from Xinhuan
    And Xinhuan is actually my real-life name, so I've been using it all my life (all 26 years of it) and its not changing. :)

    Xinh actually arrived on the wow scene a bit much much later than me, but indeed was much confused with me.


    Yah, I arrived on the WoW UI scene later than you, however I have used that handle since around 2001 or so. It was just something that was thrown together when I needed to register for a site. I have used it ever since, mostly on various Windows customization forums, however I started to use within WoW when I started getting active within the UI community.

    Anyway enough of that. What was the topic again?

    Xavier. :P

    You know how long I thought Xihn and Xihnuan were the same person, using dif names on dif sites? It made total sense to my American head that Xihn was a shortened nickname for Xihnuan. *facepalm*

    Yes, I did eventually figure this out.


    ROFL, interesting. I am in Europe (however I am American, go figure) and Xinhuan is in Asia. I believe that is shown in our locations on both sites. However I do understand where you are coming from. Xinh is a handle I have used for years and still use on many non WoW sites. I have been transitioning to the Lykofos (twilight in Greek) moniker on the various WoW boards I post on as I will be using that name upon the release of Wrath for my new main, a Night Elf Death Knight. I have used the Xinh handle on WoWAce so any post from Xinh on WoWAce are mine.

    We already know they don't like chineese gold farmers over there. Your nick starts with an 'X'. Good ol' homegrown americans don't have names that start with 'X'. It sounds oriental, so you must be a farmer. You're probably the one uploading keyloggers for that matter.


    Ah so that is why I did not get that mod position, since my nick there is Xinh! Its that "X"! Ah, now the ray of sunlight illuminates! Aghhh! My poor eyes. **Retreats back to his nice dark coffin** :D

    Quote from Tunga
    Well this is from the site that bans Wowhead because "it's run by gold sellers", and let like to rave about how they themselves are an official Blizzard partner and that means they can be truste. Even though Wowhead is too. Go figure.


    That was really starting to annoy before my departure from that site. At that time, I was pretty exclusive to WoWUI with regards to forum posts and such. Most of my mods used to come from there before I discovered WoWAce/WoWI as well. However as time went on the management's "touchy nature" (kind of like old dynamite) and liberal use of the Banhammer and Post Edit buttons really started grating on me. The final straw was WoWUI's unauthorized "mirroring" of WoWAce's SVN and the rather nasty attitude the Incgamer's management to toward the furor that generated. I left that day, yanked my uploads from that site and have since become a fixture on the site they liked to bash so much, WoWInterface.

    WoWUI (and worldofwar.net) is pretty much a shadow of its former self. Sure they are still hanging on, however I don't see much in the way of new mod uploads or even exclusive content. If anything WoWInterface and Curse boast much more "exclusive" content when it comes to WoW AddOns, and both WoWHead (whose plugin lives in my Firefox search box) and WoWDB blow the doors off of WoWDigger when it comes to database content. So really, users really don't have much of a reason to visit WoWUI. Too bad, they were a decent once upon a time.
