Smile Someone Please Take Over "NPCMuter"

https://www.esoui.com/downloads/info1267-NPCMuter.html

Someone please take over the NPCMuter addon. I've tried Harven's Mute NPCs, but I think I would prefer to mute specific NPCs instead, by adding them to a blacklist via a keybind preferably. (Account-Wide blacklist would be great. And being able to also remove NPCs from the blacklist at will.)

It would pair nicely with No Interact!

If you ask for someone to take over you should also write why.
Any Lua error messages? What is not working? How to rebuild the error/non working stuff in steps?
This would help a lot.
Or do you only need someone to increase the api version each patch and add new features like the account wide settings?

Sorry. I provided the link to the addon figuring that anyone that clicked on it would see why it needs to be taken over.

It hasn't been updated since 2016 and the author hasn't been online since then, either. Also, the 3 latest comments are bug reports. (The last comment being from 2017.)
I try to stay away from addons that clearly don't have any support. So on that information alone, I wouldn't want to take the time to test the addon myself. It obviously doesn't work well enough, if it even works anymore at all.

And that's why I'm requesting someone takes over the addon.

Okay, the comments were not clear for me as they say it works and only a few NPCs don't work.
At least this is what I had read, and which amde me think "Okay, it works, except some of the texts are not recognized".
So I thought you get any error message or did test it already and have also found somethign not working properly.

If you wouldn't want to take a small amount of time to test it, and see what needs to be fixed.


Then why should anyone else want to invest a really large amount of time to take it over?

What??? What's with your negativity? I'm not forcing anyone to take it over. I requested that someone did, so it could have continued support. No one is forcing anyone to do anything. Don't get so defensive. I'm perfectly fine if no one decides to take it over.

Also... I already said 3 bug reports are in the addon's comments. Obviously it's bugged, and it's nothing I can help with. An author that knows all the API and coding would need to take care of it.

Hence me asking for someone with experience to take it over................

I understand why Dolgubon is writing this and he is somehow right:

As I wrote above the addon comments just say for some of the NPCs it's not working as expected.
But there is no general "addon is not working at all" or "error messages appear" information.

And if you write something like "I did not test it because I did not want to because someone said it is broken"... This sounds like the nightmare for devs
As we would need to fully test the addon and see what is not working -> Not our job.

I understand why you did not test it but please do so and give more details what should be fixed then.
Maybe it's really all NPCs not working and not only a few.

I would definitely test it if an author looked into why it was bugging for perhaps only these select few NPCs, made some coding changes, and wanted someone to test it afterwards. Of course I'd test it then. Absolutely.

But I'm not going to test an addon that's 3 years old that the author has clearly abandoned. Especially one that has bug reports. It's bugged. Period.

Like I said, if no one wants to take it over to give it support (fix any bugs, etc) then that's okay.

I was simply making a request. If no one says they'll do it, that's okay. No worries.
