Apology for no update yet

The Battlegrounds are driving me crazy ... I have them enabled, and when you enter one of the new ones it is working, but it's not displaying the map just a green window (with the carts drawn overtop).

They have nothing anywhere calling the battleground maps so I'm not sure where things are going wrong yet... but it's taking forever to figure out since I can't join a BG then just sit there and work on code, else they'll report me for afk.

Why is nothing ever easy... LOL

I might not use Carbonite, but honestly Rythal, chill, relax, take a deep breath or a few hundred. Carbonite is huge, and your plans for its evolution are difficult, to say the least.

Break it down into steps. Set milestone dates, and you know what, if you don't make them, so what? Little steps. If you keep looking at what is broken or needs changing, it will seem overwhelming. Sit back, and enjoy the little things. The users can and will wait.

yup, what you've done so far is phenomenal, everyone knows the code was a train wreck when you took this on, so focus on one area at a time, it'll come together

I agree whole heartedly. We all know Carbonite has had issues for a very long time yet we *make do* for now because what does work is awesome. The old saying of how does one eat an elephant comes to mind... The answer is one bite at a time. As your work goes forward, it might come to *breaking* some features to recode others.... I can be patient as Carbonite goes through renovations... knowing the end result holds such promise.

You have nothing to apologize for.

I am new on this forum, but have been using carbonite since burning crusade I believe. I love it and can't wait till its back up and running smoothly again. Patiently slumming through quests using the default blizz quest tracker and maps. Ugh lol. That being said, the features I hope you work on, is the quest color blobs on the map, waypoints and waypoint routing for gather feature. I depend HEAVILY on the gather feature and I'm slumped on my gathering professions without this lol. Rythal, don't get too stressed with updating this, cause we all love the addon, and will wait without flaming you when we know you are working to provide us with quality work. just keep up the good work!

oh good things do definately come... like... well, you know those tiny instance maps that really did you no good unless you zoom zoom zoom in on them, then when you leave you gotta zoom zoom zoom out....

I know it's always annoyed me... so.. I did something about it :P

Next version auto-zooms in on an instance, and remembers your old zoom level for when you leave.

Rythal, take it from a seasoned hand at this: communication is the key, and you are doing a fantastic job of that.

[Most] People are happy to wait, as long as they know what is going on. For example, that's the reason why I posted the update about the prizes from our 10th anniversary stuff. There's no obligation on my part to post anything. But it's just common courtesy and makes all the difference in the world. People generally only get bitchy when they don't know what is going on, when there is no communication. Even if there is going to be a delay for whatever reason, just saying that "hey, something is going on in my [personal/work/whatever] life and this has to take a back burner for awhile" will have most people going "oh, okay, thanks for the update."

You are doing fine. Just continue on as you have been and no one will have any (valid or reasonable) complaints.

What do they say all the time in Pandaria when I turn in a quest? "Slow down, take your time"
Thank you for everything.

It almost seems rude to ask when you're working on so many things right now, but when you were investigating this, did you by any chance find the bug that causes it to sometimes not display your party members on the instance maps?

Does the map work the same in War Games as it does in "real" BGs? I'm sure some guild would be happy to take you into a War Game to let you work on it. You have fans.
