Mick.

Now i know how NAO feels.

And so another mod author gets disheartened because the community fails to understand what goes into modding.

I liked the mod. :)

I have 7,000+ members do you know how difficult it will be to get everyone to do that?  lol. I just wont use this mod, it messes up all the icons right there anyways (splits them up, puts 2 above the weather image, and 4 below it)..lol.

BD your doing a great job keep up the good work

Kimmie your not born with manners it's something your taught

Seems maybe you were playing kick about with your friends on that day

To both of you, ALL I did was ask a simple question and got a sarcastic answer. I HAVE manners until someone disrespects my intelligence. Dont even know what "kick about" even means (must be a welsh thing) lol, but okie dokie. Its NOT that I didnt like the mod, I asked to see if a simple change could be made because I DID like the mod, thats it, nothing more, just wanted to see if there was a work around so folks wouldnt have to look at all that garbled mess..lol. If the mod auths dont want to support their mods and answer questions pertaining to them, then perhaps they shouldnt make them? I see all the time on here, people making requests with mods, why is mine any different?  lol


The sheer thought of asking 7000+ people to not put anything in that box other than a city and a state is proposterous because its not gonna happen..lol.

Arantor

The attitude was what was different. You asked a question, got an answer that didn't quite work for you, then simply said what amounts to, "Fine, I won't use the mod, it looks rubbish anyway"

Speaking from experience, that kind of thing feels insensitive when you receive it, and it can hurt. It's why Nao isn't supporting Aeva here, it's why I'm no longer writing mods freely (I have written a grand total of 4 mods since the turn of the year, only 1 of them published under my own name)

You dont have forum rules?  Is the global newsletter broke in your forum?

Arantor

How about emptying the field out in the database?

Sabre™

Kimmie, You could also alter the mod to have its own field named 'weather' which wont have an effect on the location field ;)
Obviously a little more work than adding another field, but doable :)

just fyi, trying to d/l using package manager gives empty file error. manual d/l then upload works fine though and installed on default theme fine.
I look fwd to using it, thank you.

I went ahead and played around with HW3 and tweaked it so the badges would show if there was a weather alert. I also added some nice icons and removed the time. If anyone wants to use them they are welcome to. Just change out the http://www.observingstars.com in the code of this mod with http://www.twctoday.com  (Make sure you leave the /weather/ and everything after it)

Actually I was surprised at how light this is! I created a few hundred in just a few seconds. I am glad its so efficient! The beauty of HW3 is the fact there are so many people using this as well so if you do loose a source its easy to just replace the url and having it working again. I wish I found out about this years ago. Haha 8)

I will not make any deals with you. I've resigned. I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed or numbered.

Aeva Media rocks your life.

fan club?   lol

Arantor

Fan club was the wrong word, but a club for people who dislike mod users who don't care about the effort and time...

lol..... that'd be too much to handle.  Between you two, i bet y'all have a great membership.

I'll be selling my mods there, and I'm hopeful others will too :)
