Hi, my name is Thaoky, and I'm an Altoholic :)

Altoholic is an Ace 3 add-on written for people who dedicate most of their time to leveling alts, and who want to have as much information as possible in one place.

About the add-on:

The add-on has been in development since December 2007 and was officially released in late March 2008. It provides you information about your alts (bags, mails, AH, etc...) without having to reconnect them all the time.

About the author:

I was born in '76 (you do the math) and I work as a Project Manager + Software Architect + Full Stack Web Dev (yup, multiple hats) in a large multinational, so my coding time is limited, and Work > Gaming.

I live in Belgium, and obviously play on EU only.

Assistance will be provided on a best effort basis, but in any case always be polite and respectful when asking for help,  I am neither a teenager, nor a punching ball. I am a cool guy with people who are cool with me. Respect that rule and we'll be fine.

Availability:

2020/12/28: I am back in the game.

Licensing:

The license will remain 'All Rights Reserved'. Until I find a trustful candidate to maintain the addon on this very page, future modifications are no longer authorized.

 

Current Issues:

 

2020/12/27: In light of this : https://user-images.githubusercontent.com/37823216/103165741-36050380-47d0-11eb-9c38-a35032d4dc15.png

 

I have revoked Teelo's rights to all modules of Altoholic & DataStore.

After spending 12 years building the addon's reputation, I cannot in good conscience condone the support of someone who will intentionally sabotage someone else's work.

I have also reverted the license type to All Rights Reserved, and no longer allow modifications to my code.

 

@Teelo: Please take down the two addon pages that you created for the retail and classic version of the addon, your versions are no longer welcome.

 

When writing and obfuscating "if AddOn_TotalRP3 then wipe(AddOn_TotalRP3) end", you made your intentions and personality very clear.

 

2020/12/28: Due to Teelo's actions, I have reverted his changes and resumed development based on my latest version of the code. Some of his new features are temporarily not available anymore, some are gone forever. The main Shadowlands features will be back though, just be patient.
