    The new stack runs entirely over HTTPS, and it uses your standard Curse username and password. In other words, you can no longer use SSH, ...

    How annoying. :(

    I guess this means I won't be maintaining repos on Curse for my libraries anymore. I'm not going to dig through my password vault and copy/paste my (long, random, secure) password into the terminal every time I want to push commits.

    The biggest issue with this -- and the main reason I maintained a duplicate repo on Curse -- is that when addons embed my library from GitHub, I don't get any author rewards credit, like I do if they embed it from CurseForge. (I would if they also added my library to the "tools-used" section of their .pkgmeta, but that's extra work that doesn't benefit them, so they're probably not going to do it.)

    Also, the API for uploading files, fetching localization data, etc. from a script seems to be broken, and there's no information about this in the knowledge base (which seems to have had most of its articles removed) or on the "docs" page. Is there no longer an API? If there is, where is the documentation about the changes so I can update my scripts to work?

    Would you consider supporting data URIs in the src attribute for img tags? Currently they just get turned into "broken image" placeholders.

    Is there any way to get IDs on headings now? It was really useful to be able to put a link at the top of the description that sent users to the "How to report a bug" section further down the page.

    Headings used to get auto-generated IDs (eg. "How to report a bug" would get an ID of "c-how-to-report-a-bug" which could be linked to with href="#c-how-to-report-a-bug") but this does not seem to be happening anymore, either on WowAce.com or on Curse.com. Creole, Markdown, and Safe HTML all generate semantically recognizable headings (eg. h1-h6) so it shouldn't be too hard to re-implement.

    Edit:
    It would also be nice to have some way of floating images to the left or right. Most images aren't even close to the full width of the page, so they look kind of silly with a bunch of blank space next to them. I understand that "style" is out of the question, so I'm not sure how this could be implemented.

    I see definition lists (dl, dt, dd) are supported in Safe HTML, and the post mentions that the same HTML subset is available in Markdown. However, the official Markdown syntax doesn't support definition lists, and the CurseForge syntax info page just points to the official Markdown page for syntax info.

    Are you guys actually using one of the Markdown extensions that supports definition lists? If so, what's the syntax?

    I'd have preferred a random drawing... as a completely self-taught programmer, I don't have the experience or knowledge to just whip any of those things up in an afternoon, and between going to work, leading raids, developing and maintaining my own addons, and the basics of eating and sleeping, I just don't have time to learn and muddle through getting something working just for this. :(

    Re: what Hawkwinter99 said:

    None of what you said is relevant to this thread. QuestHelper can cause issues with logging in... but NOT because it is unsafe in any way. That issue lies with the way QuestHelper is structured, loading massive amounts of data all at once, and the way the WoW servers operate, disconnecting you if you take too long to load into the world. If you're logging in inside Dalaran or any other heavily populated area that takes longer to load on its own, when you add the time it takes to load all of QH's data, if your system isn't fast enough, it's very easy to go over the limit and get disconnected. This has NOTHING to do with keyloggers. It has NOTHING to do with account hijacking. It is NOT a "risk" or security concern of any kind.

    /agree with Sylvanaar. I would like documentation/instructions regarding the packager, so I can actually use it!
