Nicely done as you promised in the pm
I've changed the InventoryItemLevel page accordingly.

ToDo:
Custom point/anchors
Custom scaling/fontsize (maybe individually per location)

Yea I'll probably be doing that sooner or later.

You can always edit it personally in the 'displays/text.lua' file.

Some of the major changes I made to the framework was the pipe for Bags and the option ordering since it wasn't alphabetized (kinda bothered me with oGlow).

I think it's come out pretty sharp. I really need to update the coloring methods and some of the instrumentation.

Edit: lol... pipe for bags.. bag pipe.

I was talking about enhancing the ingame options Editing the source files isn't a problem for me but it would be a great comfortable functionality for less advanced users. No need to rush!
Regarding coloring, I was testing an "if ilvl is equal or above this number, color with..." functionality on IIL, which I thought would be a good option for custom coloring.

I'll probably end up doing something to that end. I'll have dropdowns a set of editboxes / dropdowns with perhaps an amount of steps you'd like to define.

Code:
## Title: !Sy|cff5CB3FFLevel|r
Can you please not use random symbols and color codes in your TOC title? It's extremely annoying to have an addon list that looks like unicorn vomit and has half the addons in completely random order because symbols and color codes are ruining the alphabetical ordering.

I prefer to have my own personal addons at the top of my list. No law against how AddOns are titled :U

There's a reason lists are sorted alphabetically -- it's so people can quickly and easily find things in the list, without having to read every item individually. If I want to disable an addon called "SyLevel", I expect to find it near the end of the "S" section of the addon list -- not at the very top before the "A" section because you put a random symbol in front of its name, or at the very end after the "Z" section because you wrapped the whole name in a color code. Maybe you expect your "own personal addons" to be at the top of your list, but the people who download your addon and use it alongside addons written by dozens of other people who are just as (un)important as you expect it to be alphabetzied like all those other addons.

Plus, if every addon author decides they need to fluff their e-peen by prefixing their TOC titles with random symbols to force their addons to the top of the list, then there is no order at all -- nothing is at the top, and nobody wins. You're not more important than other addon authors, and you're not more important than your users. If you want your addons to be at the top of the list, give them names that start with the letter "A".

You don't have to use the addon. If you're offering constructive criticism, then follow the DBAD rule for life. Or the Golden Rule. Whichever makes you feel warm and fluffy inside.

I'm using the addon and I like it. One suggestion though since you are running a GUI already.

Can you bring the font values from "display/text.lua" to the GUI? I had to change font family and font size manually via lua editing.

@Seerah
Thanks.

Thanks.
I already have some accommodations coming soon. I'm just looking for the proper way to make a nested drop down menu for large font lists from shared media. Don't want lists running off of the screen.

I've done a bit of optimizing as well.

I've always looked at this as a issue with the sorting rather than an issue with using colors in the names. I like the use of colors to emphasize portions of addon names. The markup should just be stripped for the sort.

The fact that I incorporate the '!' is the only reason why my addon comes up at the top, coloring doesn't even come into play since I don't color the first characters.

The addon list is alphabetical yet still based on something similar to the ASCII ordering: http://www.asciitable.com/

Just so happens that "!" is the first 'alphabetically'.
