Haha, yep :D Little skeptical about updates though, never know when they could change something and break compatibility. Unlikely, but not impossible by any means. In the worse case scenario we could just turn to a static approach, use the last working version. As of today that is v. 4.9.24.
And curious, I read an announcement regarding some server maintenance and updates to the addons website. When shall these take place?

I see. If you could clarify though please; just how does one have an extension or theme authored on the PM addons library if he/she desires? To whom would they contact?
Not that I'm in any position to develop an addon at this time, just hypothetically speaking is all.

Clarification will come with the enhancements of the site all spelled out and everything.

However, in general you will still have to deal with me.. I am hoping perhaps to get a webform up that will allow you to upload an add-on so it can be placed in the queue..

The improved "Known Incompatible..." page is quite nice, well done. I think you should sort the lists alphabetically, the current random state is a bit confusing to the eye (and annoying for a quick look/search).

Well here is a proper question. Since the list is manually maintained and stuff is moved from one list to another.. Do you want me to spend time making sure things are in alphabetical order / finding or creating a solution to automagically sort them.. or time making sure things are actually happening like updating the site, contacting developers, forking, pseudo-static'ing, adding externals, getting dev docs up, working on the update checking script to enable PM specific add-ons as well as AMO add-ons can be updated?

Your choice ;)

Knew that from the start, but it's irrelevant. Unsorted lists usually make a bad impression to the eye (and consequently, the website will leave such an impression). But even functionality-wise, why force the use of a manual search when a quick look would be enough?

Well honestly I imagined (wrongly, it seems) it could be handled easily and automatically (in an Excel kind of fashion), that's why I mentioned it. If these are the only two choices, there's no contest.

In the long run it won't matter the GOAL is to reduce the page down to one SMALL simple list and eliminate entries.

Also.. something more automated will likely make it into the next generation site software with a rational database.. just right now it is rather manual. The main thing it is way better than it used to be.. Always improving twords a goal.. THAT is what matters!

The list could have been sorted in the time it took to type your post. Once it's sorted, it wouldn't have to be sorted again.

That assumes the list is never changing. That also assumes I am not using HTML. That additionally assumes it is one list. Use CTRL+F.. I will deal with it when I am not busy with everything else.

You know.. It surprises me how much people complain about trivial things. You know I don't get paid to do this stuff right? In fact I am PAYING OUT money to provide this service to a project I believe strongly in to help fellow users. I don't HAVE to be doing it. I also could have left the page as it was or not even HAVE that page let alone the add-ons site at all.

The fact is I spent significant time to revise that page to be easier to read and show progress on reported add-ons when the previous list did the job. I did sort it.. Into categories. The current order happens to be largely the order stuff was reported but it is clearly stated that it is in no particular order. But yes I will revise it when the more critical areas are resolved even though it will make it slightly more difficult to relate that page with the compat thread (archive).

Wasn't complaining, I thought you might have forgot to sort since I understand how busy you are. Just a minor suggestion/reminder, nothing more. Keep up the great work.

Wrong. I posted no complaints whatsoever.
The only posts here that could be considered complaints were back2themoon's and Matt's.
