Request: Allow users to indicate issues with current addon version.

I was thinking it would be great if, say, after an update if players could indicate current issues with an addon so that, in Minion, people could see a warning of some kind so that they know if they are having issues that maybe they should temporarily disable that one. Maybe the warning could link to what the other users found so that they can decide if it applies to them or not. I have 120+ addons installed and when there are Lua errors (especially after an update) it takes each individual a lot of troubleshooting to figure out what is causing the problem. If other players found that addon 'SomeESOAddon' version 2.whatever is currently causing problems then they could give a warning. It would save many other users a ton of time so they could at least start with the flagged addons when trying to find their problem. Thank you.

Not really doable, forget about it.

And good bad idea. Focus on fixing bugs, not pointing bugs.

Each addon dev is working on the addons as they find the time and they share info and bugs in different chats and forums.

Indicating some infos at Minion or elsewhere would need us to write them individually at a specified place, a bug tracker or whatever.
Users are event o lazy to USE the GIVEN bug and features panel. They use the comments section of addons instead.

Like Ayantir briefly said: I don't think this is doable or maintainable without investing too much time into the "documentation" instead of really fixing it. This a our free time and we are not payed for it so users should accept and help themselves as they do (or at least the one that stop complainging and learned how to help themselves, or how to read)
