SUGGESTED STANDARD FOR PUBLISHING?RELEASING/SUPPORTING MODS
« on: March 11, 2009, 06:01:10 AM »
I find it confusing when installiing mods which contain multiple pages over a long timespan.

When a person releases a modification and supports it, I think there should be an enforced standard.

1. When ever there are updates to the original code of the MOD , which are made byu the mod owner, or fixes, they should be marked on the initial mod post.

2. They should also list the redundant pages ....


like this..

intitial release: 01.01.10
MOD :    Blah blah blah....

Blah blah blah......


last up date: 20.02.12
pages of mod post covered/included in update : 1-6
Start at: top page 7

AND WITHIN EACH ACCEPTED CODE CHANGE BY ORIGINAL MOD THERE SHOULD BE CLEAR MARKING IN RED TEXT ORIGINAL MOD CODE UPDATE  ON : DATE

What do you think?

It is hard to know which changes to initial mod releases have been modified within each thread vs. the posted mod code...

So troubleshooting is very difficult when a mod doesnt work because you dont know which directions to follow... the directions in the threads pages or the directions of the thread posted on the initial page.

Thanks
