Kami Naris started this petition to Blizzard Entertainment

Addons for World of Warcraft have been integral part of the game since beginning.
However Blizzard has not been kind to people who work on Addons in their spare time by outright saying
"They do not support addons and addon developers". Which is not even true as Blizzard did reach out addon developers in the past such as author of DBM:
https://wccftech.com/wow-deadly-boss-mods-blizzard-msi/

Some of the game features are available at max level making addon development hard, especially for Classic version of World of Warcraft.

Addons are not only used by people who like to have fancy user interface but also by disabled people who have issues with keeping up on default one.

It would be great, if we had testing realm on Classic like we have PTR for retail version of game. With the ability to:

  1. Create max level or beginner character
  2. Have access to every class spells
  3. Some gold amount on start (or way to duplicate gold like on PTR)

Addon developers really don't need much for testing, right now we manage by relying on people reporting bugs and fixing them but as any modern developer knows, to create quality product you also need to have a proper testing environment.

This petition is directed to Blizzard Entertainment to make it easier for addon developers (and other players) by providing testing environment where we could test out our addons without hindering other people. For Retail version we have PTR which does the job, however there is nothing for Classic.

Additional benefits from having test realm:

  • Classic test realm could also be used by people to check out how classes play at (near) maximum level - similar to "Class Trial".
  • Testing future raids without need to use private servers and reporting bugs.
  • Testing other parts of game not necessarily related to addons.
