Ok, i might be completely blind ... but where do i submit new mods ? o_o
Go to Mod site and at down there is a option to "Submit New Mod"

There seems to be no such link on http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/ ... ?
http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?action=postmod;sa=new

That should be the mod submit link.  :)

Yes, if you upload images they will be shown as previews.

http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=901
I guess I've got a problem then :D I don't see a preview. I reedited the image and the it was gone...

well... it happens to every image i upload :S and now it also ups the download count, because everybody clicks on it, instead of seeing it as a image.

Well? Anyone? :( I would like to see my preview images instead of a download link :(
Sigh...

I agree.  Hopefully a staff member will read your post and put it on the bug tracker.

Well I just tick the latest versions, then state in the description if it should/does work for other versions.

Although it would be nice to tick all the ones it does work for. ;)

I've seen may of mods that have multiple versions in its compatibility area selected, not just the once, how are these people able to select more then one version for their mod??

You can only select the current version.  However if your mod has already selected a previous version, then it will remain until you uncheck it and save it, then it disappears.

Thats how some mods for example have RC3 versions.  That was the latest version at some point in time.

  • Must be formated properly for the format (BoardMod or XML) being used

Wooha
Pretty Creppy
This Scared Me So Much
But
You Didn't Talk ABout Free Or Payment Mods
There Must be some Rules
And What About Making A New And A Second CopyRight For Huge Mods
E.X : This Board Uses safadsoft's Mods
Or
E.X : Download Section Is Prevoided By SAfadsoft

Are They Welcomed Here ?

Free/payment mods:
Any mods that go on the main SMF mod site are free to download. I don't think you can charge for them on other sites either.

You can write your own mods and distribute them outside the mod site, that's fine.

Adding a second copyright is fine; some mods do it - SimplePortal does, 2by2hosting does on their mods. Just be careful how you do it is all. Also note that some sites get a little upset if you have too many such things on the site.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

No good deed goes unpunished / No act of charity goes unresented.
