XF 1.4 How many add ons is too many add ons?

Back when running vB I always shied away from having too many third party plugins on my forums due to some being buggy, outdated etc

Is it the same case with XF as I see lots of little ones I want to add I just don't know if I should be.

?

It depends on the add-ons and how well they have been coded.

I have seen sites with almost 100 add-ons installed, with no noticeable issues.

Yeah i'd say thats a given, but lets say to someone who isn't overly techy and wouldn't be able to tell "how well it's been coded"?

I mean is 10+ excessive? is 100+?

You wouldn't be able to tell unless you are proficient at reading code, or unless any issues were clearly manifested.

You can get an idea of how good an add-on is by reading the discussion thread.

There is no definitive answer.
