Hey everyone. Just want to talk to you about posting your mods here on moddatabase. Over the past few weeks, we have been getting some real shoddy mod entries and it's just starting to get real annoying. I'm going to explain to you, the basic requirements of putting your mod onto modDB. These can also be found, when you actualy go to submit your own mod.

1. Site – Does your mod have a publicly visible site containing basic details? More than a page saying ‘Coming Soon’ or just a set of forum boards are needed.

2. Idea – Is your mod’s idea unique? If not, change it until it is! Blatant rip-offs will be ignored.

3. Leader – Do you really have the time and commitment to lead a mod team? Making a mod may seem like a 2 week job, but most have been going for at least a year.

4. First Steps – Have you done the first step of your mod? This could be as little as some concept art, but make sure something is done!

5. Motive - Are you just doing this to be famous? If so then give up now. Try to make mods simply for the art and the challenge, not for personal reasons.


Please make sure you study these carefully before even thinkng about submitting a mod, because I tell you now, a mod that does NOT have these basic requirements, will not be authed.

Regards,

ForK

Then the mods they submit will be deleted, simple as that! :)

Finally, some QA on ModDB. If you added some quality moderating on the forums (and a quality community) and re-invented yourselves in the public eyes, you'd have a hell of a site on your hands.

Personal Reasons can be to make a mod for the public to love and aid you throughout the Games Design Industry later on in life. The way you said it just seems pretty general.

The Rest is cool.

Yes I will delete them, but the team will be discussing matters like that before it happens, same goes with everything else, like banning people.

we dont ban for a reason and we dont allow your mod for a reason. We tell you why and you can fix it or not.
