It's very interesting to me. I've almost exclusively used Ace addons for the last couple of years. I really liked the way everything was laid out and the updater was really handy and worked well enough.
Then, out of nowhere I hear through the grapevine that the bandwidth monster was eating through the pocketbook so a "change" was incoming. Sad, but what can you do, right?
So I end up here in this thread and from what I can tell, this place is a complete @sshole parade. Between the "if you don't like it then leave" mentality, and a general undercurrent of animosity, you don't have to tell me once, let alone twice. I will be leaving promptly. I can tell when "outsiders" aren't welcome. Pardon me for intruding. I was lead to believe this was a more "public" forum.
However, I would like to say that I'm sad to see the updater go. Despite my objections to how they "run their business", I did actually give the Curse updater a try and I was less than pleased, to say the least.
So, I'm taking your advice. I'm leaving, I won't be back, and I won't be using the Curse updater either.
Thanks for all those days that Ace made my mod updates smooth as silk. At this point, once the expansion comes out, I'll be scrapping all my mods (specifically the Ace ones) and starting over from scratch. That's probably a good thing anyway, so I guess it all works out in the end.
Good luck to all of you with your future endeavors.
