I will miss WoWAce Updater. I was an end user and couldn't find anything that matched its functionality.
I enjoyed its usage and cry that it is gone. I think it is with a heavy heart I will have to leave WoW for a while. I do not have the time to try and find a new addon manager plus with the economy being so bad. I just can't really justify a game that I don't play but 4 hours a week.
I thank those that paid for hosting the app. If I would have known that me using wowace updater was causing so much pain. I would have donated or paid a subscription to use it. I wish that a different solution would have been put in place.
1. Make Curse rewrite their addon utility to use the guts of WAU.
2. Rewrite WAU to become subscriber based so that it only allowed access to the directory with a username and password.
OH and by the way... You didn't sellout. You did the best you could to maintain the Wowace community and have provided a great service for years to the wow userbase. Do not feel sad or upset by the posts of others. I commend you and your tireless loyalty to the end user.
Soon to be X wow player. (Might be back in a few months.)
