Q: Why were you so rude to me for my comment on WoWInterface/email I sent you?
A: You see a simple question that I so unreasonably flamed you for. I see the hundred-and-somethingth time that very same question has been asked of me from people just like you who can't be bothered to read. Your comment on WoWInterface that is the umpteenth repeat is just adding more noise that I have to sort through in order to find comments that are actually new bugs or suggestions. If the answer to what you asked isn't actually on this site then I will always cheerfully answer it, and probably add it here afterward. If the answer to your question is here, then I feel no remorse. I have very little patience for people who won't help themselves and expect me to spend my time answering questions they could have answered themselves (rather than, oh, updating the addon). Call it a personal failing. If your panties are really that much in a knot, you don't have to use this addon and can easily avoid the problem. Or, you know, do a little reading.
Q: You expect me to read this whole thing just for an addon?
A: I know, right? I'm such a horrible person. Fortunately, the whole thing is divided into sections with labels so you can still probably get away with putting in a minimal amount of effort. Alternately, there are plenty of simpler buff addons out there.
Q: Where did the scale slider go?
Away. You had over a year's warning that it was going away, but of course you ignored that and used scale anyway. Go you!
Q: That's so complex, can't you just put the scale slider back?
If the scale slider had never been there, you wouldn't even be complaining. Just pretend it was never there and adapt.
Q: Can SBF show my target's effects?
A: Yes! Just use the Frame unit dropdown on the General tab for a frame to change the unit it will show effects for
Q: Can you make this use Ace?
A: It already is an Ace addon.
Q: Does SBF support ButtonFacade?
Q: Why do debuffs not get their border coloured with ButtonFacade?
A: Not all ButtonFacade skins are created equal. SBF applies colour to the Normal layer of the BF skin for debuff colouring. If the skin you're using doesn't put the artwork on the Normal layer for whatever reason, then the border won't get coloured. This is not an SBF problem, but I am working on trying to find a reasonable way to let users set which layer gets the colour so that it shows up on the skin you choose to use.
Q: I don't get tooltips in my clickthrough frames, what's up?
A: If you set a frame to clickthrough, it completely ignores the mouse. No tooltips.
Q: I don't use bars. How does this affect SBF's memory usage?
A: Well, you really shouldn't worry about addon memory usage overmuch to begin with. In any case, SBF will only create bars if you have frames that use them.
Q: Why are the options in a separate addon?
A: The SBF options are a full blown graphical thing in their own right, and chew up a fair amount of memory. For most people, setup is something you do once and then leave alone except to tweak once in a while. Given that, it doesn't make sense for that to be loaded all the time so SBFOptions is a load on demand addon. It only gets loaded when you type /sbf options.
Q: Is there a French/German/Swahili translation available?
A: Right now, there are a few localisations (English, Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Russian). If you want to help out getting SBF translated into your language, drop me a line and we can make it happen
Q: Why are SBF's options not in the interface options panel?
A: The options window is cool and all, but it's big and you cannot move it. Not so fun trying to move your frames around a stationary frame. Not to mention the sheer effort involved in converting SBFOptions to that format. They are not likely to ever go there. Yes, I know about betterblizzoptions. Not everyone uses it. You'll live.
