My personal favourites on that list is the 1st and 4th one. I like the fact that both trigger designs gives you the opportunity to use/add a safety mechanism.
Also they look pretty advanced.
Just wanted to help. I have not build anything with a trigger in my life. No experience, sorry. And no interest aswell!

No interest? Well that's a shame. How can the art of designing and making trigger mechanisms not appeal you?

That's an easy one: my slingshots don't have any triggers.

Add one for the looks. Completely useless, but it sure would be cool

This one is slightly off topic but still counts as a sort of trigger. Been shooting my sling bow today and got sore fingers. So this is what I came up with!

A simple multiplex release aid that I carved out. Work great! Takes some time to get used to but better than sore fingers!

Hey I have one question I also tried to do this trigger but as soon as I put the string over the notch the trigger gets released and the shot falls
I dont know why this happens but is ist possible that the rubber inside the trigger is too weak ?

Looks like the one made by BackyardBowyer.

Which trigger are you refering to? there are posted many on this thread.

If you mean the last one that is a release aid to be held in hand so that you do not pull the string with your fingers, not to be mounted in a internal trigger mechanism.

Here is a bullpup trigger I designed this past week. The parts are made of 3/8" thick 6061 aluminum, bronze sleeve bearings, stainless steel standoffs, and the side plates are 3/16" thick 6061 aluminum. This design gives an additional 3" draw length over traditional triggers.
