Hi my name is Tim AKA Drecan (most of my MMO toons are named Drecan).

I honestly haven't even played Rift yet. And before anyone askes yes I've been living under a rock for the past 6 months but that rock was made of lots of ocean and a big metal aircraft carrier -.-.

I'm interested in trying to get on the Addon "band wagon" for Rift. I did a couple of addons for WoW (played for 5 years) nothing worth mentioning and most of the time it was for my own use or use of a friend.

I mainly used addons just to make my UI mine so to speak. I run a 23" monitor @ 1920x1080 and will force everything down to the bottom of my screen so I have a huge landscape for my viewing pleasure. Depending on the character and what I would be doing no hot bars would be on shown on my screen.

As soon as I get off this hunk of metal (which will be soon finally) I do play on play Rift (already bougth the collectors edition while it was on sale for digital download).

Since I'll be new to the game (will be playing Defiant more then likely) I am also going to be looking for a shard to call home (hint hint).

Well this was just supposed to be a short and sweet about me. Looking forward to using these forums and hopefully gaining some insight into Rift addons and maybe helping people out.

Ugh, I got Aussie in my UI (*winkTinyu*).

So, Drecan, what the name of your "93,000 tons of diplomacy"? I used to serve as MM2(SW) on the USS Enterprise.

I'll go ahead and start. Many of you will know me from our other sites, but for the rest of you:

Hi, my name is Cairenn. I am one of the founders and admins on our group of sites. We (myself & Dolby) have been running interface sites for the MMORPG community since 2002. We currently have 6 sites with this being our 7th, covering 8 games. You can find links to our other sites in the footer at the bottom of the page.

Before anyone asks - yes I am an honest-to-goodness female. Still somewhat of a rarity in the MMORPG world I know, but there are a few of us around. I've been a fan of Interface "modding" ever since my introduction to it with EverQuest and my enjoyment of the communities that we create for those of like interests has only continued to grow over the years that I've been involved with it. I am the 'face' of the site, taking care of all of the front end requirements on a site like this; taking care of you guys (our authors and users), being the liaison between our sites and the respective game companies, etc.

So, enough about me. Allow me to take this moment to give you a brief introduction to the rest of the staff and volunteers. Dolby is the other founder and administrator on the site. He's the one that takes care of all of the coding and such needed to keep the site running smoothly. I'd also like to introduce you to Nobgul and Seebs. They are the first two volunteer moderators for the site. Try not to be too mean to them.

Everyone, please do feel free to say "hi" and introduce yourselves.

Hi I'm Levva and I'm an Addon Developer. See first step to recovery is admitting the truth.

I'm probably best known for the WoW addon for Enhancement Shaman ShockAndAwe. I'm also the author of the Rawr addon for WoW, Rawr.Enhance, a project co-ordinator for EnhSim and one of the Super Moderators at MMO-Champion.com.

I've been playing Rift since beta but paused when my mates from WoW stubbornly didn't join me. Now that addons are on the go with an API available (very very minimalist at present) I'll have a bash at writing a Rift addon. Plus my mates are starting to say that patch 4.2 for WoW is so poor that they are already fed up with little to do and its been out for less than a month. So who knows they might join me after all.

My first project is already started on Curse and I'm gradually picking apart the API & example coding to see how it all works although I'm not fully sure the API supports what I need yet.

Anyway I'm very pleased to have found a dedicated resource for Rift Addon Developers and hope to discuss many things here over the comming months.

Hi, all there ...

I am an somewhat older woman from Germany loving MMORPGSs after being seduced by ZELDA ...

I've been using Cairenn's, Dolby's and Drakah's UIs since 11 years now (or were it 12 already ), starting with EQ (with my bard "Saph" on Solusek Ro, oh yes, those were the days ) over WOW (with a lot of toons on a lot of servers - my user name "proke" at WOWInterface) a short trip (from BETA to a bit over a year) to AION and now I'm playing RIFT (since prelaunch) too.

Far away from being able to develop my own addons I am a vivid user though - addicted to beauty - and therefore I am really curious how RIFT addons will develop.

Hello I'm Cazrin and a budding add on developer! I don't know LUA yet but as a developer both professionally and in my spare time I will hopefully pick it up in no time while chipping away at the add on API.

Not even level 50 yet but getting close (47 right now) and can see me playing the game for some time and would like to invest some effort in a few add on ideas I have.

Looking forward to seeing what the community here can produce!

Hello Everyone

I am Lildry, I am currently enrolled at Unveristy of Phoenix getting my BA degree in Information Technology WebDesign/Programing. I already have an associates degree in information technology webdesign. I am really good with HTML and photoshop, I have taken C/C++ class and I did well in it. I will be takeing java classes later this year, unfortantly the school doesn't offer any LUA classes and I need to learn it on my own with the help of some of you.

I am intrested in a few types of application, I would like to work on healing addon, chat addon, and decurse addon. I have already learned to creat slash commands using Lua and now I moveing on to learn to make a simple default window. Next I would like to learn to build a raid frame.

I have been spending alot of time working on Lua application over the past 3 weeks and I found that the API has alot of things that need to be added. The things that we can do with the API is currently very limited. I think that the Rift API is easy to read compared to WoW and when it is completed it will be far better than wow. I hope to work with some of you soon.

Regards,
Lildry

Hey! You no doubt zoomed past my chars a few times with your selos on Solusek Ro back in the day. That was my server as well (Before Bristlebane swallowed it (grumble)). Good to actually see someone else from good ol' SolRo =)

Anyway, I'm a fairly avid developer though I've never publicly released anything. As someone else said, I believe, I like to make the UI and it's functionality "Mine". Who knows, I may yet release one of them sometime. I may have released one for DAoC back in the day. Don't remember if I did or not. That was some of the best fun modding. WoW may have topped it if I had played the game for any length of time, who knows.

So, here's to Rift and the success of all the great authors here!
