    I read the OPs request differently. Just a list of all addons with a <not on Curse at this time> next to the ones it can't handle.

    Edit: oh . . . someone got it already, should read the thread completely before replying . . . <goes off to get cofee so he can think again>

    Needs to be a translator system in place I agree. Though I might not want them to have full access to my project, we should be able to add them specifically as translators and give them svn access to the locales directory. Then you should qualify.

    You've got to be kidding me? Grrr. My vote goes to option 2 and then fixing libstub to load them when requested.

    This is really nice....


    The amount of traffic that goes through this forums is obscene, especially right now. Just imagine all the devs running around with their hair on fire and you've got the right idea. I'm sure it just slipped through the cracks.

    Every comment I read from you further confirmed what I suspected with the first one: You're already becoming a jaded support rep. Especially since you used "DIAF". :D

    posted a message on WTF just happened?
    I hate double posting, but I felt I needed to add something.

    We, as a community caused the clueless come here first by developing and encouraging them to use WAU, not releasing our addons at all, etc. It's our fault that they are here. We shouldn't take it out on them, but rather just calmly show them where to go from now on, ie:

    Released addons go to release sites. All addons hosted on wowace go to curse.com, some are hosted elsewhere as well. The forums here are for general things, but for specific help on addons all you'll need to do is click the tickets button on the release site. The reason for the change is in the stickie in the General forum: http://forums.wowace.com/showthread.php?t=14343

    If you wish to contribute to this community by helping out our development process by bug testing/reporting, translating, helping people with thier coding troubles and giving them ideas for addons, or helping bug squash (assuming you are so skilled), you are welcome to stay and do so, we would be grateful to have you as part of our community. If on the other hand you just want help with a specific problem, want an updated version of addons, etc. Your place is release sites where the addons are hosted.

    WowAceUpdater is dead and gone as it encouraged people to use alpha/beta versions of addons requiring lots of updates, taking huge amounts of bandwidth and in the long run was very counterproductive to our continuing of making quality addons (as well as being too expensive to exist for much longer, if any longer). The release sites have their own updaters, the curse one is the new curse client and will get better as time goes on. WoWInterface has it's own udpater as well.

    For more information make sure you all read: http://forums.wowace.com/showthread.php?t=14280


    With that said, <puts on his fireproof suit as he's sure he'll need it>

    Come on guys, be at least halfway civil, I agree that wowace is a dev community and needs to stay that way to an extent, but no need to be rude about it. People are just confused and some don't know how to speak in a non-entitlement way. (Some of that might be us misreading too, since not everyone speaks English very well).

    My philosophy: quick answer, point to stickies if needed, send them on their way, hopefully with an answer or at least a way to get it.

    (as for the "only for dev community" part, we want users here, but we want constructive users specifically, trying to make it easier for the more clueless users to get released and quality addons from where they should, release sites.)

    Quote from Aeyan
    I'll second Phanx's stance on the Curseforge profile page. It lost a lot of utility it used to have. Not sure the new feature set for the wowace page is a better alternative to what is, arguably, even more of a developer focused site.


    Not near as bad as it was when Phanx posted it, they added the url: http://www.curseforge.com/home/tickets/ for tickets only, think it's in flux as we speak.

    Quote from Adirelle
    got the following answer :


    Interesting . . . I got an idea, why don't you host the addons yourselves and make it opt in? Hrmm . . . a good business model . . . no way that'd happen. If all they did was scrape the addons page once and a while looking for updates and dl the new version ONCE then it'd not be near as bad. Though still kinda shady.

    but not knowing what it is doing is the worst one. Definitely needs to provide more notification and feedback about it's actions.

    Why not with the client?


    Client isn't 100% ready yet, but getting closer. As well as only downloads release versions and not every ace addon has a release version tagged yet (one of the problems with the old wowace is that some addons were never released and the wowace svn and WAU downloaded alpha/beta versions. If you are getting no errors at the moment, just stick with the version you have for a few days more ('till you NEED to update due to patch) and I'd bet almost all will be client ready by then.

    Quote from Torhal
    I'd be against that. We definitely NEED a multi-column mechanism for LDB displays. There are also a very few addons which would benefit from the clicky-click mechanism. I don't think rolling it together would be a good idea or else we'll have the "everything has a dropdown menu" syndrome all over again.


    Ahh I think you misunderstood, I meant two libraries ;) I like where this is going, though I'm sure I'd need the more full version at one point or the other. How possible is it that the full version would embed (as in in the same file just using libstub) the lite version?

    Ie. two libraries in one file/folder, so if the user has the lite version already loaded it'd upgrade or not the lite functions/methods as needed, as well as have the extended functions/methods as a seperate lib. So people who want the full version could just embed that and still have no code duplication with the lite version? (just thinking aloud here, could be a very dumb idea)

    If that is fine: Why are there two (three) kinds of "logins" to the svn? One without any username, one with my username and one with username and the prefix svn:ssh. Is the latter some linux stuff? I always use the second one with my username and the svn-prefix.


    First one is the public url.

    Second is the normal, dev only url.

    Third is the encrypted, dev only url. (yes svn username/password pairs are sent plaintext iirc, so encryptions is a good idea, if a pain to impliment) For help on how to setup ssh on windows please see this url: http://www.wowace.com/knowledge-base/ssh-public-keys/
