    In the deDE.lua there is at least one phrase missing:

     L["Visit a trainer"] = "Besucht einen Lehrer"

    You are stating that you support multiple languages, but instead you can only parse English clients.

    This is because of Line 19 in ArchyDigsites.lua and similar places in the code

    fragment_type, amount = strmatch(msg, "You receive currency: (.+) Archaeology Fragment x(%d+)")
    

    I can help you to make it available for German also, I have done this for my local version of you Addon, but I'd like to contribute so other people here can also profit from this very nice addon.

    Regards, Mattion

    The problem madmike2 is talking about below is caused by these two lines in Archy.lua:

    self.db.char.artifactReadyAnnounce = self.db.char.artifactReadyAnnounce or true;
    self.db.char.artifactReadyUsesKeystonesAnnounce = self.db.char.artifactReadyUsesKeystonesAnnounce or true;
    

    You can remove them as a workaround until daihenka pushes a new version.

    The state of the "Announce when an artifact can be solved" and the corresponding "Include keystones" options aren't saved between sessions so I have to turn them off every time I login. Is this intentional or a bug?

    This error began to occur when I first hit a node in Dire Maul. It might be because the dig site in that zone exists off the regular zone map, and is marked on the world map instead, so the coordinates might be finicky.

    I am also getting same error happens when I first log in. if I disable archy and then re enable it the error goes away for a bit.

    Very nice addon. Is it possible to only show the digsites? I don't need to see the artifactinfos. Currently the addon won't keep track about previous digsites and found fragments. Is this because of the german client I'm using or is this worked on?

    Please keep up the good work.

    Happened once, looting a archeology dig in the Thoradin's Wall digsite.

    Edit: Also, going through the dark portal doesn't change the current digsites list to the outland ones, I had to reloadui.
