Hello! Thank you for letting me into your community. I hope I can be helpful & helped here. Please let me know of any ground rules beyond normal good manners and commercial spammage I generally adhere to anyway.
Quick question: How stable is TSM2, the whole suite, right now?
Rationale: Skillet looks mighty inviting because it makes somewhat limited changes to the Profession windows and does not require a suite of addons to get going. Yet it still provides handy augmentation to views/controls to navigate and assess economic worth of changing this to that. But Skillet is still 5.3 addon with a bunch of users blithely ignoring that and complaining about internal conniptions it has. I don't know when it will be 5.4 compatible but TSM2 has been since about the day that 5.4 dropped.
Question: How much do TSM2 and Skillet change the as shipped WoW Profession UIs?
Rationale: I love improvements and embellishments but I kind of feel like if you are going to turn the whole cart upside down, maybe you should just build a different cart. If things get overly complicated, they can become laborious or unintuitive to use. Plus, the risk is heightened it will become unstable due to an accident or "incompatibilities" with other addons that simply tangentially "look" at the data for the windows in question or augment tooltips.
Question: What addons is TSM2 and was Skillet incompatible with?
Rationale, I don't want to throw one addon overboard to give a berth to another!
Thanks for your help if you have time to give any. I would be extremely happy if you just respond to one question at a time, starting with the easiest for you to answer.
I really respect the information you convey in your podcasts. I love how you run a screencast during much of the show so I can see how things are actually working while I am hearing it described.
