PM to Cairenn:
Hi, we just opened a new addon hosting site, and we were wondering if we could let authors know about it on your forums? We have no intention of trying to steal authors from your site, only wish to get the word out that we exist. The text we wish to display in our post is:

"Hi, I'm from New Addon Site. We've opened our doors, so please come check us out at www.newaddonsite.com!"
...and...

Straight to forums:
Hi, I'm from New Addon Site! We've opened our doors for you guys to come host your addons at our site: www.newaddonsite.com

We have these features that you'll love:
  • feature 1
  • feature 2
  • feature 3 - is better than Curse because...
  • feature 4 is better than wowi because...
  • feature 5 is coming soon and is something we know you're missing on both Curse and WoWI...
  • We're better than them so you guys come host with us
  • we'll give you phat lootz!
