    Yes, the API calls for retrieving guild history type information were changed in this release. These addons will all need adjustments to work.

    add Tamriel Trade Centre to that list, as it does seem ZOS broke everything to do with trading!

    As a note on TTC, I was speaking with someone who had had TTC errors on only one guild. The fix for that was simple. He merely had to remove the saved variables for ttc and let it rebuild it, and then the error for that went away.

    For Raffle Gold:

    Find the LUA file under, documents > Elder Scrolls Online > live > AddOns > Raffle Gold

    Using Notepad++
    Line 670: Replace 'RequestGuildHistoryCategoryNewest' with 'RequestMoreGuildHistoryCategoryEvents' (no quotes)

    For errors created by Advanced Member Tool Tip & Arkadius's Trade Tools, install the No Thank You! add on and set LUA ERRORS > redirect lua error to: none to stop them from printing.

    I am looking for someone to fix Raffle Gold Tally since that one seems to not work at all anymore. :(

    I know that error messages can be quite annoying, and if you're using addons that aren't updated frequently, suppressing the messages seems like a blessing.

    The flip side of this, however, is that those error messages are incredibly helpful when developers are trying to track down what's causing an issue. Supplying a screenshot of those messages can significantly reduce the time it takes a developer to fix a problem.

    "Your addon is broken, please fix" isn't a great way to get help. It's incredibly non-descriptive and offers no actionable information. However, "I'm having x issue while using your addon in x context. Here is a copy of the error message I received while doing x" is INCREDIBLY helpful and descriptive. These messages are even more useful if you've enabled the detailed reporting option in your error messages. When detailed reporting is turned on, the error messages will point to specific lines of code where the addon is having trouble. I completely understand that:

    user:/AddOns/MasterMerchant/MasterMerchant.lua:2449: function expected instead of nil
    stack traceback:
    user:/AddOns/MasterMerchant/MasterMerchant.lua:2449: in function 'MasterMerchant:ScanStoresParallel'
    |caaaaaa<Locals> self = tbl, doAlert = true, timeLimit = 1565594379, guildNum = 5, i = 1, guildID = 697, guildName = "The Auction House" </Locals>|r"

    means nothing to most people, but for an addon dev, there is a wealth of information here.

    TLDR: Yes, error messages are annoying, but if you want help from a developer with an issue, you need to leave them on.

    I've found that you have to run /mm missing frequently to keep it up to date. After /mm missing type /mm verbose 4 so it outputs to chat what it's doing - you can see the percentage of sales it scans every minute. Because add ons are limited to requesting 100 records every 30 seconds, if you have a high traffic trade guild it can take several hours to complete the scan. When done set /mm verbose 1 so it stops posting to chat.

    @girlpoison thank you very much, I will try this tonight when I get home!

    1. You don't need to run /mm missing. The scans take a LONG time because of the restrictions ZOS has put on how data is received from the server. Just let it do its thing and chill. You can switch characters while MM receives data, just don't switch accounts. MM remembers where it is in the scan and will pick up where it left off upon switching toons.
    2. I suggest leaving your verbose setting to 4, so that you can see that the addon is actually doing what it is supposed to do if you trust the programming. It will overall take LESS time to scan, because you won't be going back 10 days every time.
