well i dont use these forums much, couldnt hurt to ask :), ill stick with the checkbox, now that i've found an updater that possible can update them again without missing versions, i aint riskin that. I'll keep ya posted.
Just remember that because an addon is listed as "Out of Date" dosn't mean that it won't work. Alot of very simple addons don't need to be updated. Other times the author as already fixed it for the new patch, just didn't update the interface number.
