Wowmatrix not updating
I want to honor Cairenn's wishes about not promoting on Wo WInterface, but seeing as we are being discussed, I hope this reply and any futhers ones in this thread are allowed / warranted.
I understand Solid ICE did not get off on a good start, but I think we are making efforts to mend those ties, if they are being received well or not, I am not sure, my chances to interact with authors has been unfortunately limited.
The root cause for addon leech sites like Wow Matrix and Solid Ice isn't user demand -- it's greedy operators who see an easy way to make a quick buck from ad impressions by convincing clueless users they're a better source for addons than legitimate sites.
While it may have been true that Wow Matrix was a better addon installer/updater than the Curse Client 5 years ago, I just don't think that's true anymore -- the Curse Client is certainly not a thing of beauty, but it does what it says on the tin, and is so simple to install and use a toddler could do it -- and WM/SI users are certainly at a disadvantage when it comes to selection.
Ide really like to adress this quote in particular: I am not sure how Wo WMatrix operates these days so I can't comment on their practices, but could you please elaborate on what makes SITE A legit and Solid ICE not legit?
Solid ICE is adhering to all licenses at this point, and has been for some time, as stated by Torhal, if a author does not agree with the restrictions that a license provides, they can use a more restrictive license such as All Rights Reserved.
All my addons are public domain because honestly, I didn't care.The only reason these people keep running/launching these sites is to make money for themselves.
