(posted in response to jpdouble69)

Seconded. The wild accusation that every author does that is as wrong as it is offensive to me, especially since I already posted twice the 'guidelines' I set for...

I was already thinking along the same lines. Write stub libraries containing no-op replacements of these functions and raise the version number to "infinite" so that they will override the real...

I'm an addon author myself. And for a living, I do write code which ends up in security applications.

So you can imagine that hidden/undocumented functions are a big NO in my books.

Just see it...

Of course one can brute force to get a list of accessible houses of a target player - I wonder if the response is as coarse as "you do teleport" or "you can't teleport" or as fine grained as to why...

It is. I noticed it with a bug in the AddOn "SocialStatus" which failed to deregister itself from the event after being fully logged in. Without this, it resetted my online status whenever I switched...

That would come close to listing up all of a foreign player's collectible items and not just houses. I'd be not quite happy about the prospect of Joe Random Troll having read access to my inventory...

I don't have much hope for this. Background Music seems to be quite deeply embedded in the system and not controllable via the LUA API.

It starts with the simple fact that the BGM fades out whenever...

Splitting up the community even further was sort of my fear, too. But I do see the point to have a (the?) Discord channel more focused to developer/user interaction rather than developer talk.
