Flaose, Malvineous, etc. admins. Warning!

DO NOT localize the download link of this crossover mod yet until I say "Now you can localize!", because currently I'm fixing little problems that takes time for me to fix + I need patches from Levellass, which also have to wait. Moreover, I don't want to create x million versions of this crossover but updating the files in the zip file from Dropbox. It's much easier for me and for those, who downloaded the mod firstly and found bugs, etc. If I automatically update the zip from dropbox, they can easily download it again via dropbox.

So I repeat myself once again: Do not localize the download link yet!--Szemigi (talk) 12:03, 17 February 2016 (UTC)

Szemigi, as we talked about when you tried to delete Fathership Revenge, it is not your place to censor the KeenWiki. If we choose to upload current versions, there is nothing that you can do about it. --Flaose (talk) 14:27, 17 February 2016 (UTC)
Well, then how will you call the versions I created? Because they aren't version 1.0, 1.1, etc. or something. Just saying. --Szemigi (talk) 17:01, 17 February 2016 (UTC)
You can put the date in the download link for this. However per the guidelines a mod should not be included here until it is finished (or perhaps abandoned if sufficient progress has been made) so perhaps this page should be deleted until Szemigi is finished? -- Malvineous (talk) 00:07, 21 February 2016 (UTC)
I made an initial version, which is not an in-progress or abandoned version, so why deleting the page? --Szemigi (talk) 13:28, 21 February 2016 (UTC)
It seems this version is 1.0, I should prepare for a 1.1 release fixing initial bugs that seems to be the idea here. -Levellass (talk) 07:14, 24 February 2016 (UTC)
@Szemigi: You said we shouldn't mirror the download here yet because you are still making changes to it - that's the definition of unfinished. To keep the wiki neat and tidy, it's better if mods don't have pages until they are ready for people to download and play. It would be very annoying if the wiki were full of mods you couldn't download. So either your mod is finished, the page should stay and we can mirror the download locally, or you are still working on the mod and really the page should not have been created until you have finished! Of course now the page is here we're not going to delete it if you're this close to finishing, but perhaps next time if you don't want us to mirror the download until you are ready, it would be best not to create the KeenWiki page until you have released version 1.0 and the mod is complete! -- Malvineous (talk) 04:23, 28 February 2016 (UTC)
@Malvineous: I'm almost done with fixing everything. I'm just waiting for Levellass as I requested some patch codes and hopefully I'll get them soon. That's all left, which means I'll be nearly able to ready to update the dropbox link finally. Then you can absolutely mirror the link. So it depends on Levellass, too! Besides, she has posted here, just look it up. As for the mod, I've released an initial version, evidently, which is being fixed - like I said - very quickly as I had less things to fix. So it's definitely not unfinished, abandoned, etc.--Szemigi (talk) 10:29, 28 February 2016 (UTC)
