a screenshot of the addon in use would be swell since you don't even say what it basically does. i went over to the site and saw that the addon lets you rate people you group with in four ways (friendliness etc.) and lets other with the addon see this information.the questions i have are more about the installation process than the addon itself. why create a self-installer when 99% of the people who would use this addon already know how to install them? yes, i made that number up, but seriously... and more importantly, why does this addon create a new launch icon to start wow? that's very strange. i went to their faq section but it seems to be experiencing a fatal error atm.

I believe it was implied in the article that the special launcher is there so that the addon can sync it's data every time you start WoW. This ensures regular updating of the gathered data to the server. I think >_

okay i must have missed that somewhere. if that is the case, that's a pretty lame way to go about it. they should decompile gearscore then which syncs with whoever you tell it to, or recount which syncs with everyone in your group unless you tell it not to.good concept; needs some work on implementation.

It isn't about syncing it with other players. The launcher syncing they are talking about is getting the data back to their servers so that they can actually do the analysis of it. The process needs to be outside of the actual game because add-ons can't send data to random servers during gameplay (imagine the potential drama in that).
