Hey the new experimental code for the fork.. looks promising
They still have issues.. but are getting better.
the lack of UI prompts leaves the user clueless as to what is going on.

Basically the experimental code will allow a census query on any mouse key press.. or that seems to be what is happening.. there might still be some blockage there.

spent some time with the new fork not yet release.

If you are a keyboard mover and use mouse click to look around and trigger actions.. it works fairly well.

If you are a mouse mover and use the keyboard to trigger actions.. then not so.

There are still bugs in the code that haven't been resolved in some time..

the FriendsList.Who window will pop open at the most inconvenient times.
With out having verbose turned on.. you have no real clue what is happening
and with it turned on you are getting repeated messages.. not sure what is triggering that.

It is still easy to overwhelm the query send process and get queries silently dropped.. which requires a resend.. but sometimes it may have lost a query and does the next one.. not sure about that.
Processing of the results gets delayed..lost query or other.. and the addon will apparently hang.. I've been able to clear it (?) by pausing the run and restarting it a moment later.

When you get to the end of the queues.. addon will run the finish routines.. but still be locked up in apparently trying to send the that query over and over.. which won't be processed.. since the run already finished!

At this time I have thrown in the towel on this project.

It is wet, but I am much cleaner .. thank you.

Understandable, thanks for trying to get this going before Blizz messed everything up! :)

I had intended to port the changes over to Classic CensusPlus....
but due to the site outage
and needed to do almost all the work to get it back up..

This has been delayed.. probably for at least another week.
This coming week with the US Thanksgiving day holiday and Black Friday .. means I will be engulfed with my real live paying job.
