    ok, fair enough. i've got another question, is (or will be) there a chance to get rift icon blinking, if tabbed, when a minion is back from adventure?

    Is there a way to fix Minion Sender resetting to previous 'rulesets/option'?
    It used to only happen on game crash I believe, but I just tested something and it can reset to previous rules if you close the game normally and reopen it.

    What I did was :
    Open the game (minions were on 4 hours missions), take my rewards, send all minions on 5-15 minutes missions, close the game, and reopen it right away.
    The sender was back on 4 hours missions.

    So it's not just in crash it seem to happen when the sender does not "Save" the setting somehow, maybe if you don't stay in game long enough or something like that? (It also happens when I swap characters sometime).

    So my question is, is there a way to "Force" save the settings so they don't change even on game closing, character swap or even game crashing?
    What exact action makes the addon "save" the settings?

    I'm even considering not using it anymore unless there's a fix... The addon's idea is excellent, saves time.. But it doesn't save much time if you have to check everytime if you're using the proper ruleset, and if you forget one time you can lose a full night of minion adventures (by sending them on 8 hours soon as you log on, instead of when you're going to sleep or something), not good.

    the addons settings save happens when you log out - either to char selection, exiting the game completely or even reloading ui. If the addon sometimes saves, and sometimes does not, there is either sth fishy with rifts write permissions into its addon folder, or somehow the game is closed completely before it saves. Could be a non spotted bug in the addon as well, but i doubt it since many people use this addon and they haven't spotted it, or at least haven't reported it.

    If we see it as an egregious and obvious mistake, maybe there should be more communication to tell us that it is not?
