Bam, to put it bluntly, your posts over the last few day have, for the most part, not been constructive and mostly just flamebait. In fact many are down right direct attacks. Last time I remember someone's comments being considered "unconstructive" he lost his opps on IRC *cough* Be happy you're at least getting a warning.
I will make note that, though I lost IRC back then, I do still have powers in the forum and the wiki (and Kael knows I do). I've resisted the urge to just ban you many times already, I feel that someone not directly involved in the conversation should do that, or if every admin is involved, Kael should.
The thing I find really odd about this is that while you keep piping in and complaining about the framework and the people that have "come back" for Ace3... I only see one addon and one library to your name. I'm not trying to say you don't have a say in the project, we certainly welcome constructive criticism, but for the most part all I've heard from you is negativity over the future of a framework you barely even use!
I guess other people warning you got the message across, and I'm glad it did. I didn't want to be the one to do that, cause it'd just sound like a knee-jerk defensive reaction from me at this point in time.
To *maybe* change the subject slightly... all the rock vs Ace3 crap here... I'm honestly interested in who's planning on using which, and their reasons why (not their reasons why they won't use the other, I want "pros" here, not politics). Maybe both sides can learn a little bit of what the devs that use the frameworks want?
I quoted you Tek, but really this isn't a response to you.
I acutally just wanted to say, my fears about 'duplicated' code with having 2 frameworks are gone, and I"m very excited about the possiblity of newer and better addon's being developed for both frameworks. I'm sure some nice, lean, clean and efficient mods will be coming out soon. If I can mostly keep getting my stuff via WAU, I'm gonna be solidly in the 'I don't care what its written with' camp. I'm truly a convert to the 'why should I care which framework its on' idealogy.
Assuming good addons come out from both frameworks of course.
This may not be the case, but I get the feeling that Rock is probably great at handling 'big' mods like pitbull, or big wigs [seems big] or maybe like Ark Inventory, Because it provides 'more' features built into the core framework.
But that means that a smaller mod, say... like OmniCC, would totally be wasted developing as 'Rock' because of the needed overhead from the framework to load such a tiny mod. If a person where to just get OmniCC with vanilla wow UI, they'd have a very unneccesary amount of addon loaded. This is where Ace3 will excel. Thats not to say that Ace3 won't be good for a Pitbull type mod, but it seems like the smaller abstraction layer, means slightly steeper learning curve for Ace3 and a dev may prefer to build in a Rock enviroment?
Anyways, thats theorycrafting trying to understand whats going on with these frameworks.
Everyone is trying to work to make something better. I think thats good to remember. Whether or not 1 person agrees with another on what is 'best' everyone is working to make things better.
There really shouldn't be such animosity, for what has to be hobbies for all of you.
