As requested

A few authors have asked me to start a thread where they may post any problems they are having with WowMatrix, to make it easier for them to work together, point out problems to other authors, etc. So, as requested, here's your thread.

I've also been asked for a generic DMCA template. I'm attaching it as a .rtf file. The info for is already filled in, they are WM's provider. Any information you need to fill in, I've left a blank space (or said what the information needed is) and highlighted it in yellow for you.
Attached Files
File Type: rtf dmcatemplate.rtf (11.5 KB, 700 views)
I'm fine. You know what 'fine' stands for, don't you? Yeah - Freaked Out, Insecure, Neurotic and Emotional

Thank you for the additional link Arrowmaster, you are completely correct, I should have included it myself.

Also, fyi: The template linked is the one that ThePlanet wants you to use.

Here's my blanket response:

Hi, thanks for your request. However, I will not be hosting my addons on WowMatrix anytime in the near future. There are numerous reasons why:

* WowMatrix has violated author copyright by hosting addons without permission and changing the code of the addons it does install.
* WowMatrix has hosted out of date versions of numerous addons causing the authors to spend signifigant amounts of time providing support for users who refused to acknowledge that they were using an out-of-date version of addons.
* When authors request that their addons be removed from WowMatrix, they have not complied.
* They have been and continue to try to utilize the bandwidth and hosting technology of Curse and WowInterface in clear violation of the terms of service of those websites.

As an addon author, I have the right to control where and when my addons are distributed. This allows me to provide a level of support for my users that I feel is necessary.

There are a number of easy ways to find out when an addon has been updated on Rather than trying to update the addons every time you open WoW.. you can download the latest version when it becomes available.
"There's only one thing that I know how to do well and I've often been told that you only can do what you know how to do well, and that's be you-- be what you're like-- be like yourself. And so I'm having a wonderful time, but I'd rather be whistling in the dark..."
