Mar 3rd 2012 4:14PM I'd have to agree with you here. Our guild is celebrating out seventh anniversary next week, and I've been an officer for almost six years of it. In that time, the "near-end-of-expansion blahs" usually hit only about six months or so before the end. This time, we've had people dropping like flies since last October/November.
Feb 8th 2012 5:55PM Oh hey, there IS still a copy of it: http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info4702-tradeDispenser.html
Feb 8th 2012 5:54PM OK, I was probably among the few people who desperately tried keeping tradeDispenser around. This originally was created for WAAAAY back in the day before mage tables. That, and when there was mana water and health food. Warriors didn't need the mana, priests didn't (usually) need the food, and pallies often needed both. The addon would let you set up groups by class, and decide who got what.
Sleeper Cartel used tD differently when we threw a server party. We'd gift wrap fun/goofy/sometimes-epic items, set up it's automated chat feature, "/s Step right up for a free prize!", and then wander our party. All someone had to do was open a trade window with you, tD would plop the item in there (in this case, a present), and then it would auto-complete (this later got nerfed by Bliz, and then you got a MONSTROUS "CONFIRM" button in the middle of the screen).
Somewhere at the beginning of Wrath it broke HORRIBLY. Namely, it was a jumble of code, and I couldn't for the life of me figure out where to add DK's as a selection (all the other classes worked, but DK's made it choke). Then, it started getting a ton of other errors.
I guess the game just changed TOO much to keep it up and running. I *did* try to get it fixed once during Cat beta...but its still not 100% functional.
Feb 8th 2012 5:42PM I run into guild mail messages every year when our guild does our "Secret Greatfather Winter" exchange. Message 18, 19, 20..."You have exceeded the number of unique mail recipients." And then I gotta wait six hours (or more) for the throttle to cool down.
So, it wasn't the addon that broke, it was the throttle that WoW put on to handle all the mail spamming that was occurring.
Dec 30th 2011 7:16PM Oooh...still want.
Dec 27th 2011 6:18PM Er...um...want. Especially since I just bought my son his own account for christmas.
yay! three toon spots on my home server! (once I can save up $75 to move his out!)
Dec 20th 2011 2:35PM Every year when I host our annual guild gathering, young, old, and all in between spend a good portion of Memorial Day weekend beating the hell out of each other with Nerf(TM) weapons.
Would be great to be able to do it in-game as well. :)
Nov 20th 2011 4:29PM Thought: Theramore could very well be the new Wintergrasp / Baradin's Hold zone of MoP. Would be a perfect spot for it.
Nov 10th 2011 7:56PM For Sleeper Cartel, maybe it's time for us to throw another server party. Been a long, long time since we did one...
Oct 21st 2011 4:44PM Trope filled? Look at the game you're playing! Most achievements, a good share of the dialogue, and a good many of the NPCs even are tropes, inside jokes, and blatant breakers of the fourth wall jokes.
I for one welcome our new monastic overlords.
