Lore on the Fragility of Add-Ons

edited January 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I find myself hesitating to install quite a bunch of add-on's because a number of them seem (rather significantly) buggy and/or have semi-undocumented interactions with other add-on's.

Would any of our gurus be willing to scribble some comments into this discussion about things they have observed with specific add-on's - and especially those which interact unpredictably (or maybe all too predictably) with other add-on's?

I know this is, by nature, a moving target as add-on's are fixed, extended, new ones are added, etc.. Still, a discussion that logs some of the current state-of-the-art might not only help admins like me but suggest priorities for needed work on specific, valued add-on's?

    Thank's Wanderer. Weird that I've published three book's ... was an editorial columnist for Computerworld two decade's ago and yet my grammar suck's so bad. I have special problems with I-or-me: when? why? Me not care.

    Here is one add-on whose solidity I crave that is still not quite there: Multi-Roles. We cannot reveal-or-hide specific categories based on multiple roles. See also the main Multi-Role discussion thread.

    Note also Multi-Roles's's's dependency on being loaded first, before other add-ons.

    It's not your grammar that sucks by the way, it's your punctuation!

    Eh? It's not posessive, it's a plural, and therefore it shouldn't have an apostrophe, surely?

    //scratch that, the title is correct, the comment is not.

    Account Pictures still hates Predefined Attributes, AFAIK, with the result that your predefined attributes get reset. :(

    "Weird that I've published three book's" -- Sorry could not resist but since you are talking about plural books then why would you need that apostraphe? Edit: Hmm... maybe you are just being sarcastic because you did that throughout your post... Nevermind then.

    heh leason, I thought that, but "Multi-Roles's's's" kinda gave away the sarcasm thing :D
