343 - Have "Default" be the default profile, instead of per-character

When creating an alt, each Ace3 addon will generate a new profile for that alt.

I argue that this should be done differently.

The current case is:

For each newly-installed Ace3-profile-using addon, when I log into any character, I have to manually visit the preference for that (and other) addons, select "Default" as my profile, and delete the auto-generated profile.

This is for each addon, for each character.. up to 50 for an account, as I recall.

What I'd expect is:

If I log into a character which happens to need special customization for that particular addon, then I would customize it.  Since I'm already customizing the addon, it's trivial for me to create a new profile for it.

    We've decided against this a long time ago, and the decision still stands today. One of the reasons is that switching your addon to "Default" is easy, switching it to "per character" is hard, if it were not the default.

    In any case, whichever is the default, there would be complaints. Ace2 had "Default" as the default, and plenty people were also not happy..

    Cannot make everyone happy, sorry.
