    Enough with the meters, buff trackers and boss modes.

    Need some addons to ease the gameplay.

    You are welcome to start coding any time you want.

    In the mean time, I will write the addons I enjoy writing, within the limits of what the API allows.
    You can play WoW in any MMO. You don't have to play WoW in RIFT. Oh, and no, RIFT is not a WoW clone. Not having fun any more? Learn to play, noob! I don't speak for Riftui, but I moderate stuff there. Just came back? Welcome back! Here's what's changed. (Updated for 2.5!)

    Pretty much what seebs said, although I play to write a buff bar here soon as it appears most aren't actively being updated at the moment. Might even take over panda bars.
    Even free cost too much now

    The problem is that all the cool useful stuff like this isn't possible. AFAIK you can't hook keybinds so when you hit your inventory key instead of bringing up the default bags you can tell it to open your addon bag ui, no right click functionality if you tried to make unit frames and you'd have to manually hide the default ones anyways, addon elements don't go into the Edit Layout function so placing them and having them play nice with the default UI can be a pain, etc. Note how this forum is still labeled BETA.

    Well, like I said. You're welcome to start coding whenever you want something.

    It's not as though the people working on addons are unaware of the desire for these kinds of things, you know. The API can do some stuff, but not all possible stuff. And we have finite free time, usually.

    Thing is, context matters, and the context is that we've all been told that people want these addons many times. Many of them, we want too. Believe me, if nameplate/health bar mods, action bar mods, chat mods, or one-bag mods were possible, I would have at least started on all of those.

    Tidy plates actually ranks the highest for me. As a tank trying to select enemies is a real pain in Rift.

    Nice attitude, BRO. Just because he is an ambassador doesn't mean he cannot give his opinion. So sit and calm the hell down.

    Looking back at RIFT is bittersweet. Ah damn.

    Alright, how about you take your little princess attitude out here and make it yourself. Unless you're going to pay for me coding any of these things, do it yourself or wait till someone does it.
