"Man is his own star. His acts are his angels, good or ill, While his fatal shadows walk silently beside him."-Rhyme of the Primeval Paradine AFC 54
You know a community is bad when moderators lock a thread because "...this isnt the place to talk about it either seeing as it will get trolled..."
other addons were broke by blizzard because they were bad for the game, oqueue isn't bad for the game.
and in the thread op linked, for once i actually agree with the oqueue creator, people are questioning him and acting like he has to give an answer to their questions.
oQueue is awesome, I just started using it this week. I can find whatever raids I want in like 5 seconds. Wish I'd heard about it earlier.
Knowing that the guy who made it will come down hard on anyone for whatever reason he wants is hilarious, especially if he's thus far only used it to hammer jerk-faces. He uses the power for good.
This is really grasping for straws in my opinion.
Even the thread title here states "..in CODE"...
Essentially, the author uses the addon himself to queue. He chose to ban certain users he did not enjoy playing with, or for whatever reason. This is no different from someone putting someone from an LFG or LFR queue on ignore, and therefore not getting queued with this person again. This is also in their personal client "code", and not publicly viewable. He did not go out of his way to "shame" these people publicly, neither ingame or on a forum, to my knowledge. And if he did this, that would affect HIS ACCOUNT, and not the addon. The addon is not "shaming" anyone.
I fail to see how this violates any part of the ToU or EULA, any argument claiming this is on wobbly knees indeed.
The only part of the AddOn I could see being in danger is the Donation button, however that can simply be removed - also, the AddOn was never purchaseable like others in the past, that since became free and still exist today.
Since this thread is just fighting and insults, I'm going to close it.
If you have constructive feedback for an addon's author, please direct it to them, or just use alternative options to the addon. MMOC is not the appropriate venue for this, and it just ends up as a free-for-all for bashing the guy, which is not acceptable.
