New Developer Center - Suggestions Wanted!

Greetings!

Curse is happy to announce a brand new planned feature for our Curse Client -- The Developer Center. This will be a quick, easy way for any author to upload and manage their projects. To make this new feature the best it can be for our authors, we want all of your suggestions on what you'd love to have and appreciate!

With this new Developer Center, you'll be able to easily upload new projects and new versions, and see your project list. To top it all off, we're also creating a simple, intuitive wizard to make everything fast and effortless!

Any and all suggestions or thoughts can be sent to [email protected], or leave a comment here -- Our developers will be checking both regularly!

You must login to post a comment. Don't have an account? Register to get one!

    Be constructive, or get out. Spreading FUD and trolling will only get you banned.

    And since you clearly didn't actually read the ToS, I'll break it down for you: You are granting us a license to distribute and serve your files. You give up no rights, you grant us a license to provide the service that we provide. If you don't like it, you are welcome to take your projects elsewhere.

    Looking forward to this release! Will it integrate with our existing Minecraft server for things like automatic updates? That would be awesome!

    Keep up the good work.

    Wrong. Stop trolling.

    If the new ticket system ties into the web site(s) ticket systems seamlessly and makes users accountable for the tickets they create (for example, in CC, it notifies them when the author responds when they run CC, etc.) then that might be acceptable. I just find the current implementation (with CC) annoying. I automatically remove any ticket that starts with "Submitted via Curse Client". :P

    As far as the original article goes, I'd be interested in seeing how this "Developer Center" works and/or to see it in action. And if this makes it easier for people to add stuff, it makes wonder how it'll affect the Author Rewards program. I'd really hate to see it (Rewards Program) go down the tube because of a bunch of useless files being uploaded.

    Better ticket support is also on the plate, but we're also about to announce support for Minecraft and World of Tanks in the Curse Client and to make this a better experience we're adding this feature around the same time.

    Some new ticket features I hope to add are:

    • Ticket notifications inside the Curse Client for users so authors can better communicate.
    • Better creation process so we don't have "DUZ NT WKR!!111"

    I agree with Mikk. There's a few ideas/fixes that need to be implemented before this. Still waiting for an option to disable tickets from CC (make them actually use the web form so we don't get stupid ones like "DUZ NT WRK!!11") and a subscription option for localization updates. :)

    I have a suggestion! Before doing this, add per-ticket email subscriptions, and automatically add ticket creators as subscribed!

    It's bloody impossible to get feedback on tickets now =(

    Uhh, no. If there's one thing I wanted, it was an easier way of uploading your addons (without having to set up SVN or something). Looking forward to this!

    Not everyone is going to use this feature, but we get a lot of feedback from new authors and non-technical people who would like easier ways of creating new projects. This feature doesn't take anything away from advanced users.

    This feature will probably only benefit new CurseForge authors and authors who aren't programmers but are submitting things like texture packs.

    Please keep the feedback constructive.

    Thank you
