Alpha Tools removed?

Any information on what happened to Alpha Tools? When I go to the addon page it says removed by the request of the author.

Did AlphaLemming Leave?

It looked like his mods had been updated today but when you click the links they say "removed per author's request."

As soon as I hit post I noticed that someone else posted about the same thing shortly before I did. Sorry for the duplicate post.

His 'update' was to remove all the actual addon code and just post a message of (basically) "I'm done.". So yeah ....

Pretty lame of him to just up and delete it. I personally don't use either of his addons, but I have a few guildies that were using them.

No, it isn't selfish or lame. It's his work and he is allowed to decide he no longer wishes to distribute it. It also can not be picked up by someone else without his permission, it is fully copyright protected. It is always sad to see a popular author leave a game for whatever reason, but their reasons are their own and we can't know what they are. Try to have a little more consideration.

CraftStore 2.01 did not include any kind of license info file. It did not even have the README mandated by ZOS.

Files included in the 2.01 zip were:

Bindings.xml
CraftStore.lua
CraftStore.txt
CraftStore.xml
CraftStoreLang.lua

I don't know what CraftStore Reuploaded was, but if it was literally just a reupload of the last available version of CraftStore that wouldn't fly.

In theory, someone could rewrite CraftStore and release their version as long as they acknowledge where the inspiration and possibly where some resources originated. That's what I'm working on now with qqFrames (ggFrames replacement).

edit: and there's your answer from Cairenn

It was deleted because I didn't get proper permission from @AlphaLemming and was breaking the copyright protection by just doing a straight reupload.


My bad

I don't really see the logic in your response. I never questioned whether he is allowed to decide whether he wants to distribute it or not. You are right that it is completely the right of anyone to put up or take down whatever they want just like it is my right to view taking it down with no warning or explanation as lame/selfish.
