Orionshock. Walk away from the computer. Take a deep breath. Have a nice soothing cup of tea. And please try to play nice with the noobs; remember there are a lot of them out there who:
a) Don't like change (and this change came on pretty suddenly and without warning), and
b) Just need to be pointed in the right direction for information.
I know your patience is wearing thin, but some people just want their UIs to work and not have to go through these teething issues (especially when things seemed to be working so well ... and then they turned to custard). This is the reason I have got the Rock addons on "ignore" in WAU until the dust settles.
I'm currently drinking tea and I don't consider my self a noob when it comes to addons, which I belive a couple of people will agree on. I have no problem with the new way to configure addons the "Rock" way, allthough I do find it to be less effective.
I can understand why "ckknight" wants his own framework, which leads to the fact that a new configurations tool has to be written and used.
However I've allways hated to configure my addons this way, but since I had the option to not do so before I had no problems with it. Now I'm stuck with it if I want to use an "Rock" addon.
I consider "ckknight" to be one of the leading addon developers, but I can't understand why he neglected the people wanting to configure another way then this when launching "Rock".
I must say that I'm very happy to see that a "Show All" option was added. Also considering that the page has reduced loading time and categorys which I've started to like more and more I must say that I'm very positive.
Heya, I just noticed that - http://files.wowace.com/ - looked diffrent cause of what I belive is called "WowAce's Packagemancer". Since I frequentlly visit the site and grab the correct addon names for EU's interface forums I allways found it convinient to just make a page search (CTRL+F) and type in what you want/need or the name of the addon you kinda know.
I therefore request a function to "Show all addons", or to go back to how it looked before, but I would in the same sentence also expres my deepest gratitude to this site and it habitants, you sure make wow a better game then it allready is.
