    Default Welcome to the addon forums!

    Hey everyone!

    My name's Ben and I'm a member of the UI team. I've developed a lot of smaller features (like the Public Group system) but now my main job is lead developer of the addon system. I'm going to be paying close attention to the Addon forum and giving out technical support occasionally.

    I've been working in the game industry on and off for around a decade, taking a break to go back to school and put in a few years at Google. I was also heavily involved in the MMO addon scene for about two years. I'm going to be using my addon experience to make Rift's addon system as good as I possibly can.

    You have no idea how excited I am to see what people make with it.

    While we'd love to get official suggestions, our current TODO list is kind of packed. You're welcome to discuss requests on the forums for the time being.

    Its already been posted, and there is an addon that dumps current API for you.
    The api is not fully complete right now, so don't take what you see as final.

    Why don't the Dev team make the things addon junkies want most? That way they are compatible, no keyloggers hidden inside, Comes out already fit for the game and its theme and IMO there are a great many things missing that should have been there to start with. lol

    I sent many many many things during beta and don't see any of them so maybe the dev team can just start adding those things in now.

    There are 6500 WoW addons. Are you saying you want them to develop and maintain thousands of addons, which would take hundreds of thousands of hours?

    This is the perfect example of functions that I hope will never available.

    It will only ruin the game, we all know that.

    no i think hes saying why cant they make the most common features avalible either in the game or in a official trion release so that you dont have to deal with a 3rd party.

    personally i hapen to think they did great with the current UI, and it is amazingly custamizable.
