I propose an Ace lib that UI pack-compilators can integrate into their pack to easily include their savedvariables files.
The library would then apply the variables once, perhaps call some "refresh"-methods on the addons in the pack. After the first application the addon remembers not to do it again unless specifically requested.
is there anyway you could create something for addons that scans for updates just for itsself alone, like adaware or windows auto updates? but also be outside of memory usage.. meh sounds like of hard actually.
meh fair enough, international laws are pooey, give 1nation world please
but u still didnt answer all of my questions; i mean your saying if you like the look of one ui they can use it, but if they dont like it then you cant. even though surely what you like or dislike isnt something that is universal
i thought you had to apply / pay for copy right on something, hence it being alot of bother
but anyway can we talk about my suggestion of having a report out of date function for each ui pack page? then they would not be able to use out of date addons unless specifically required etc.
edit, so now your basing it on taste? right.
also you do have to register if you want to use this copyright to enforce anything the site says, but why should your laws affect me (not that i even know the UK ones), can you even take me to court when im in another country?
but surely that is not bound by law without a proper license to do so? [edit: not too sure but some may even be able to claim it as their own but so long as they dont use it for commercail purposes its legal]
i mean you make an addon for yourself and hopefully others to use, so why does it matter where they get it, its still you as the toc file author. Me, i would be happier knowing that more people can now enjoy my addon
but coding forums are bound to be elitist, i mean just look at the WAU response
I'd also like to know the answer to this. I don't want my addons included in any kind of compilations, premade UIs, guild packs, or whatever else you want to call them, whether it's manually packaged by the uploader, or dynamically packaged by the site. If you like my addon, and want to share it with other people, give them a link to the download page.
sounds an awful lot like copy right, the internet is for sharing
anyway i believe the OP was talking about core libaries
