Apologies, I'm not an author. I'm a user. I just had an rather annoying experience. I checked my add ons for WoW Classic in the curse forge client and found an add on that I have never installed.
CHS Addon Pack
I thought to myself, I have never installed this knowingly, I must have installed it by mistake. I didn't think twice and uninstalled the CHS Addon Pack.
To my surprise when I logged back into the game half of my interface was gone because... when uninstalling CHS Addon Pack several add-ons were uninstalled.
I reinstalled and reconfigured the missing add-ons and suddently CHS Addon Pack appeared again.
Turns out this is an addon pack created by a guild or raid for its members. Well, problem is when you have the same add ons installed the pack is getting detected as installed too.
It includes popular add-ons so I can't be the only player that made the mistake....
And with all due respect, I don't think packing a couple popular add-ons for a single guild or raid that is not their own creation should be allowed.
