qComments (weekly)
Version: v4.2.1 (1114)
by: gr11x [More]
This addon shows user comments from wowhead.com to help questing.
It is a modified version of the original qComment addon (credits to ostap):
  • The database is built weekly from wowhead.com (currently only with English quest name support)
  • Comments are sorted by rating, highest first
  • All data is loaded on demand to decrease memory usage
  • Characters at a lower level will use only one database, higher level characters will use two databases
  • Level requirements for each quest are shown

Information:

This addon is maintained only to keep the database updated and the code compatible. Please do not request modifications or additional functionality.


Dependencies:
  • no other addons required, just use the standard questlog to show the comments
  • nQuestLog, QuestGuru or MonkeyQuest can optionally be used

Usage:
  • Open your default Quest Tracker or your QuestLog
  • Press and hold down ALT key
  • Click on a quest title
    -> Comments table shows up

To hide the comments table:
  • Hold down ALT key and click on the same quest title again


Usage with nQuestLog or QuestGuru or MonkeyQuest:
  • Expand some quests in the quest frame (be sure the frame is locked)
  • Press and hold down ALT key
  • Move cursor over a quest name
    -> Comments table shows up

To hide the comments table:
  • While still holding down ALT key move cursor anywhere outside the questlog frame

To keep the comments table open:
  • Release ALT key before moving cursor

Were glad you are. To each thier own right? Ive tried them both, this one is a bit less obtrusive, but that works for me, which doesnt mean it works for you.

Please, next time you want to down someone elses work, stop for a moment and think about it, try to identify what you want to say, then politely.. STFU.

Otherwise, great addon youve got here mate, hope you update it for 4.3

Thumbs up Just passing through...

First off, nice work.

Secondly, I'm sorry that people seem to think that what *they* want should dictate what *you* do. Your work is appreciated, and the functionality/size/scope was perfect for my UI.


Thirdly...
@Arcadian Del Sol: Stop having such miserable conformity to ideals. A similar line of thinking produced Microsoft. If it weren't for people who had a passion to do something differently, if albeit similar in nature, the development of technologies/software would be a slow and painful process...

Thank you very much for this, much less intrusive and much easier to read compared to LightHeaded. And no need to justify sharing your work with us, it is always appreciated!

Nobody forces you to use qComments. And please let me decide by myself which addon I write or keep alive when I believe it's worth it. I'm doing this to share some work and not to get 100% of all needs filled.

qComments is a simple addon to get the 10 highest rated comments for a quest and that's it. LightHeaded is a great addon which has a lot more data and functionality. If you want it, take it (as most of you do ). But please don't rant.

No need to be snotty.. This addon has existed for almost as long as LightHeaded, if not longer.

There doesn't have to be just one of each addon type. Besides, they work and look differently.

Please note that new quests often do not have any comments yet or didn't have comments when the database was built. Such comments will be added automatically next week.

Also, the sides for some quests on wowhead.com are incorrect: neither Horde nor Alliance nor both sides. Such quests (atm about 8%) are ommitted but will be added as soon as the sides are updated.

I no longer have the quests anymore and the name of the quests were in the screenshot.

And for the record, the screenshot shows me selecting the quest "Extinction" which actually doesn't have any comments on Wowhead, but I checked several of the other quests and they do in fact have comments for them.

No comments on Wowhead, why don't you add one!

I don't think this is working right. I have all four addon folders installed, I have all four check-marked in my Addons window but whenever I click on a quest to see the comments for it, your addon says there are no comments on Wowhead, why don't I add one!

Well, it did this for all twelve quests I currently have on my character and I checked Wowhead myself and there are indeed several comments for each quest.

EDIT: And just to let you know this is with the default quest log and tracker and also with QuestGuru and QuestGuru Tracker, both get no results.

EDIT AGAIN: Here is a link to a screenshot on Flickr. The screenshot also shows the quest database is loaded into memory. And for the record, the screenshot shows me selecting the quest "Extinction" which actually doesn't have any comments on Wowhead, but I checked several of the other quests and they do in fact have comments for them.

Sadly, Flickr sucks right now and shrinks the full-sized image so it may be hard to see.

Lightheadeds database was updated less than a week ago. Why is that 'outdated'?

Blizzard's own quest map features makes waypoints for quest objectives almost needless, so I won't add it in the near future.
