For that purpose, I think it would be more useful to stick a website entry in the toc.
I'm not particularly interested in debating th merits of the -Ace2- tag, because it wasn't my point at all. In my mind, the function of the tag wasn't very meaningful in creating the dichotomy between 'Ace2' and 'non-Ace2' mods; however, it certainly played a hand in sustaining the dichotomy.
Let me extrapolate my point further. I'm probably damning myself in the eyes of many, but at this point I'm used to it. The concept of replacement serves a dual function - on the one hand it demeans the product to be replaced, and on the other it offers the 'salvation' to the problems of the other product. This begs the question - why do I need a replacement, and why should I replace it with an Ace2 mod?
There are two ways to answer the second part of that question. The first way is by saying that the Ace2 mod is just better than the other mod on-face (i.e. Pitbull's raid frames are better than ozRaid because they're not buggy as hell). The second way, and the way the community is most likely to answer that question, is because there is -something- about Ace2 that makes it more desireable on the user's end.
The general population is largely ignorant about coding. They'll make the assumption that there must be *something* about Ace2 that is better than everything else, and should try to replace all mods they can. There is proof of this phenomenon - when Violation came out I remember reading "Man, I'd been waiting forever for an Ace2 damage meter." And I probably read that 900 times. This thread from the German Wow-Europe forums serves to highlight my point further.
Of course there is animosity towards Ace. The WoW-community at large has set up an adversarial relationship between Ace and non-ace mods.
You know, the original discussion about this -Ace2- / Not -Ace2- tag thingie came from cladhaire saying people were adding it to his addons without his approval, and addons which did not even use Ace2!
Anyway, you could just add "Uses Ace2" to the Notes field, or if you really, really want something in the title, then -Wowace- would probably be more explicit for addons that are only supported on wowace.com.
I realize that - the Ace2 tag was meant to apply both to the actual -Ace2- and the more colloquial "This mod is an Ace2 mod!" tag.
I've expounded on this elsewhere, but I think the *real* problem isn't the Ace2 tag. In fact, I find that tag useful. About a year ago, when I downloaded a compilation before becoming addicted to Discord, I had a horrible time updating some of the mods because I couldn't find where the hell they were hosted. Curse-gaming? wowinterface? ui.worldofwar.net? it was just a mess. Having the -Ace2- tag was meaningful, insofar as it showed me (the user) where I could get updates for the mod, and maybe find some community discussion about it.
I don't think the -Ace2- tag is even remotely close to the problem. I think THIS is the problem.
