    OMG I'M GETTING A SERVICE FOR FREE AND THE COST OF BANDWIDTH FOR SOMEONE ELSE, HOW DARE THEY PUT ADS TO FUND THIS, IF ALL ADS AREN'T REMOVED WITHIN 24 HOURS, I'LL DROWN A KITTEN.

    Re-read the above until you realized how foolish your post was.


    I stated in my original post that I don't mind ads. BUT I do mind POP-UP ads.

    I'll give you a minute to go back and re-read my original post until you realize how foolish your reply was. While you are there, notice the placement of the word "pop-up".

    Ya back? Did ya happen to catch that tidbit? Or should I give you another couple minutes?

    Re-load your WAU until you get the Showtime ad for "The Tudors" and tell me that isn't crossing the line. That isn't a banner ad that just sits there saying 'look at me.' That is a full fledged ZOMG LOOK AT ME!!! as it pops up above EVERYTHING ELSE and refuses to stay minimized. I hit the X button on it 15 times in a row and it kept coming back.

    I love WAU. I've used it for a LONG time now. Before there was ads and continued using it AFTER ads were added. No complaints - because the program matured and continued to add new features that I really like. I've migrated alot of mods to ACE due to ease of use and new features. With no problems UNTIL the pop-up ads.

    I don't want to replace WAU. It does everything I want it to flawlessly. It's the same reason I don't block Google ads. Unobtrusive ads are bearable. Pop-ups are NOT.

    Let me repeat this... one... more... time, since you didn't get it the first time. Maybe I was to subtle: I don't mind ads. Pop-up ads are bulls...tuff and won't be tolerated. I won't tolerate them in my Internet Browser. And I won't tolerate them in a third party app.

    Again... learn to read... and not be an arse.

    If something isn't done to remove the annoying pop-up ads coming thru WowAceUpdater, there are going to be problems.

    I have few problems with a banner ad (even if they are annoying and shouldn't be there)... but if the ads continue to appear like the freakin Show Time ad for "The Tudors" I swear I will do everything I can to block *ANY* ads from your program again.

    Either that, or someone please let me know of other programs that update Ace without ads (or at least this ad provider)

    Thank you.

    posted a message on WoW UI Updater (Windows/Linux/Mac) - supports multiple sites
    I downloaded, unzipped and started playing with WUU. Snazzy piece of software.

    General questions that I hadn't seen answered elsewhere.

    Using X-Perl as an example... after messing with stuff, I set everything to Unknown and 'Updated from DB' XPerl is a 'package' of like 17 folders (Xperl, XPerl_Arcanebar, XPerl_GrimReaper, etc). Why are the individual folders identified as split between WoWI and CurseGaming? Shouldn't they all be one or the other?

    And then I have packages like BigWigs, LittleWigs, Prat, etc for Ace. What is the difference between AceSVN and WowAce? And should the 'daughter' folders be tagged 'related'? BigWigs as an example... BigWigs has BigWigs and 10 extra folders. Those folders are tagged WowAce by the DB. Should I retag them as Related? And would the same thing apply to XPerls daughter folders?

    And last but not least... mods that are updated acrost multiple websites. How do you choose which one the DB tags? XPerl again... is kept on Curse, UIGamers, WowI, etc. What makes one site priority over the other?

    I, like many people, have a TON of addons... I'm really interested in this mod, but I haven't mastered the finer points of it yet. I don't want to mess up my addon directory so I'm trying to make sure that stuff gets updated like it's supposed to from the best site. This program seems like a step up from UICentral + WAU + Manual updating leftovers.
