CurseForge Comms for June 9th, 2017

Greetings and salutations, Authors!

 

This update comes quite a bit late, but we’re here! The team has been hard at work on some of the previously alluded to large scale overhauls to our codebase. Between that, business trips, travel, and boring business related activities, it’s been a bit hectic around here.

 

We are still working out how we want to portray these posts, the content within them, the order, etc. We have received some really good feedback so far, and we hope that we can continue that open line of communication and are currently working on new ways to streamline the process.

 

Our first move in that direction is to consolidate all news updates and posts to www.curseforge.com. Other sites will receive a stub and link back here, so that we can keep all comments and questions in a centralized location.

 

The process for this is new, so please let us know if you find any issues.

 

Onwards to the changelog.

Woo! Decent list of items, but keep in mind that much of our dev time for the last month has been consumed with big picture “under the hood” changes. That’s something that we’ll likely have some more info on soon.

 

Before we go, in case anyone doesn’t know, myself and the team are available via other methods of communication as well. If you haven’t already, you should certainly follow @CurseForge on Twitter or come hang out with us on Twitch App in our server https://invite.twitch.tv/tW6UAW

 

One of us is always available over on the CurseForge server, and it’s become a more reliable way to communicate issues, ask questions, or just to get general help as an Author.

 

That’s it! As always, feel free to comment below and let us know what you think about the changes, and anything else you might want to communicate.

 

Your friendly neighborhood Community Manager,

MrFlamegoat

 

P.S. Anyone going to PAXWest or TwitchCon? We’ll see you there!
