Add-on updates, a public service announcement.


Recommended Posts

About mod update inquiries, aka "Please update your mod to (insert just-released KSP version here)"

For everyone interested in updates to their favorite add-ons, please do not pester modders in the add-on thread, modders volunteer their time and requests or inquiries for updates just derail threads and will not make updates come any sooner.


In case new KSP version is released and the mod is not advertised as compatible or supports only previous version:

1. Please make sure that at least a reasonable amount of time has passed since new KSP release. Modders may be well aware of new version and could announce the release themselves - asking them for update on the same day will not make it happen faster.

2. Before posting a request, please make sure that update was not already asked or announced in mod thread:
- check the first post of the addon for news,
- check the last pages on the thread,
- use the search function in the thread with "update" as keyword.
If the mod has an additional "development thread" please do a search there as well.

3. If someone has already requested the update or the modder announced it, please refrain from duplicating the inquiry.
To add yourself to the appreciation crowd and/or show that you are a fan waiting for an update - consider using the Like-system and giving a "+ Like "  to corresponding post: this will not result in an additional (distracting) email notification in the modder inbox,  - but it will still be visible and noticeable for him/her on the forum.

4. If there is no news in the first post and no response - there is likely no update.

5. Modders are asked to keep their first posts up to date so their fans can stay informed.

6. If someone broke this guideline and pestered  - please hit the "report" button, type "Mod update pestering" into the field and hit "send".
Please refrain from responding with advisory post, aka "You should not pester for mods" - as that would fall into "backseat moderation". Thanks! :)

Summary: If sufficient time has passed and update is neither announced, nor already asked by someone -  a polite inquiry about an update is OK. Pestering is NOT OK, - just hit "+ Like " next to existing update instead of making a duplicate post - and then just give it some time. Please hit "report" button if you notice pestering.


Thank you.
