What can we do to help grow our 3PDs?

<< < (6/23) > >>

- Mod Contest
- Mods of the month (most other forum software seem to do it, why not smf).  Awards = recognition.
- Easier Transference of mods (some great new mods start, then fizzle out as the author loses interest of is a one man band)
- Sharing mods - multiple people allowed to edit/update/contribute to a mods. Mod teams (Competition is a wonderful thing)

I think that can be accomplished with licensing and the forge as previously mentioned.

That can definitely be accomplished with a forge.

Excellent stuff.  Keep them coming!

I just had a thought on this. A 3PD forge would make this easy to grab the most up-to-date packages of the mods, and do what many linux distributions are doing with their software: a make-your-own package. This could make installation of these large 3PDs much easier, to have them pre-packaged with SMF in a build-your-own style.

Think of selecting the latest build of SMF and being able to download it preinstalled with TP 0.9.8 or SMF Arcade? Would make mods even more consumer friendly.

The SMF license forbids that.  Do a search for SuperMod if you wish to find out why that will never happen.

No problem, then. I'll just sit back and keep watching here.
