error when trying to submit a mod
« on: April 20, 2012, 03:18:05 PM »
An Error Has Occurred!
We have detected that your package id contains spaces. Please remove the space and reupload the file again. The correct format is authorName:modName

i dont have any spaces in name of the file?

Its not talking about the name of the file, but the package id you setup.

In your .xml files you have a <id></id> that contains your mods package identifier in the format of yourname:modname.  It can't contain spaces.  Choose this carefully as we rarely allow this to be changed.  This identifier is used by SMF's package manager to uniquely identify a mod.  Which lets you make upgrade mod packages for users among other things that it does.

I also think there is a Bug - submitting a  mod takes very long time.

PS: how long does it take until a mod gets approved?

How can this be a bug?

As long as it takes the team to work their way through the lists.

All mods are manually vetted and approved and due to SMF being a volunteer based project the team can only work as hard/fast as the real world will allow them. ;)
Please don't PM me for support unless asked as they'll be ignored.
If you've removed the SMF copyright you won't get support.

That link is not working. Might still need approval.
