Massive AddOn Author Cataclysm Beta Key Give-Away!

WoWInterface is proud to announce that we are offering Cataclysm Beta Invites to all our active, registered AddOn authors!


Who loves ya baby? Okay, maybe love is too uncomfortable a word. Who takes care of ya baby? We do! Another massive Beta key give-away for AddOn authors, this time for the upcoming expansion Cataclysm!

This is not a contest! Whether using US or EU client, if you are an AddOn author that hosts with us and you have been keeping your AddOns current, you are eligible for a key!





Once they have been enabled and you get the chance to get your AddOn ready for beta testing in the expansion, upload it to our Cataclysm Beta download category and then be sure to check back in our Cataclysm Beta forum for possible feedback.


Rules:
  • You must have an active World of Warcraft account.
  • You must be an addon author with one or more files on the site that are current to 3.3.x (Plugins/Patches, Compilations & "Hello world" or its equivalent do not count).
  • One key per author. Blizzard will check to make sure you aren't getting multiple keys, so don't try to scam.
  • Your WoWInterface account must be registered to a valid email address.
  • Do not upload addons that are not your own. Anyone caught uploading someone else's work will be banned from the site. All AddOns submitted are manually checked.
  • Blizzard and WoWInterface reserve the right to deny anyone a key.
  • Must have a WoWInterface account registered before 7/12/2010. *New
    Read post explaining the decision to add this requirement.
Your Beta Key will be shown under your tracking number on the sign up confirmation page as we receive keys from Blizzard so please check back often! We will post news on our community page regarding what range of tracking ID's have been assigned keys. You will not be contacted when your key is assigned.


Again, don't forget to make use of our Cataclysm Beta download category and Cataclysm Beta forum!
  • [Edit] Keys for Tracking numbers #000565 - #000727 assigned (3 Sept)
  • [Edit] Keys for Tracking numbers #000412 - #000564 assigned (21 Aug)
  • [Edit] Keys for Tracking numbers #000199 - #000408 assigned (22 July)
  • [Edit] Another 48 keys handed out. Tracking numbers #000151 - #000198
  • [Edit] Another 50 keys have been assigned. Tracking numbers #000101 - #000150
  • [Edit] Next 50 keys have been assigned. Tracking numbers #000051 - #000100
  • [Edit] First 50 keys have been assigned. Tracking numbers #000001 - #000050

Guild permissions are broken right now, so only the leader can invite fyi.

Also no first for you Lunessa.

Could this also apply to interface authors? I'm not flagged as an 'addon author', but updating a custom interface is a lot of work.

If by custom interface you mean a compilation, you've already been answered:

• You must be an addon author with one or more files on the site that are current to 3.3.x (Plugins/Patches, Compilations & "Hello world" or its equivalent do not count).

You can't do your work until the addon authors do theirs anyhow.

We indeed love you, Cairenn :P

To do:
- quick finish bugfixes/feature requests for existing addons
- prepare for Beta and rewriting!

I would like to remind people that at this point in time, addons are *disabled* on the beta. The UI Team would like *their* addons tested and finished a bit before throwing it to the wolves (ie, us authors).

But, you can still test their UI changes and test the content! Tons'o'fun will be had by all, I assure you. If anyone would like an invite to the author guild, Secure Hookers, on the US-PVE server then send a tell to anyone online in the guild.

And we will post in this thread when addons are again enabled on the Beta client.

Well, I mostly update the addons I use by myself because they are all custom. I have my own oUF layout included too as well as a few scripts of my own in the core.

But I understand your decission.

An oUF layout would be considered an AddOn. You are most likely not triggered because you have not uploaded your layout as a specific AddOn.

Fantastic, this will hopefully mean more development of McRun Macros.
