Since there isn't any section at this board that is called "Forum,Site Feedback" I create this topic here.
This is quote from this thread: http://forums.pocketplane.net/index.php/topic,29333.new.html#new
the download links for BWS stops working. I saw that you start to use git but you use private tracker. It would be really nice if you could switch to github.com so BWS could use constant "master" branch download link as we do it for other mods.
The most recent update (v7) was put up on PPG by Kulyok. The beta updates were only for testing.
I fear in recent times, this is not enough. For the past 5 years , BWS was nothing but complete because of how often mods was updated,renamed and have new links. So instead of spending time for fixing bugs, adding new mods or developing new features, dabus was forced to constantly updating links for mods. And that was one of the reason for him to quit supporting BWS. This must be changed.
I'm asking the site admins to change download system for all PPG mods. The new system should be able to provide constant download links that:
- do not depend on the filename (http://mods.pocketplane.net/DEFJAM_v7.zip
- do not depend on the file version if you enable SEO: mods.pocketplane.net/<modname>v7 -> mods.pocketplane.net/<modname>v7_1/
- will not change when uploading/updated the same file
It is the year 2015 and changes are needed. Also the whole site look old and like abandoned: are you sure that you want to leave such impression to the newcomers? There are plenty of frontend which are far, far better than this outdated mambo. You can also update forum software to something decent like IPB or vB and move all mods to the "Download" module.
I don't expect that such changes would be done immediate but something must be done definitely. I hope that I will revive any kind of (positive) answer.
