The CurseForge Team gets a lot of satisfaction from improving our service to mod developers and players. Over the course of the last few months the team has been revamped and schedules shifted to ensure someone on the team is available 24/7. While the team plans to continue to keep this schedule in place, we are fast approaching the holiday season. Here in the states it starts Thurs, Nov 27th with the roasting of a turkey, overeating and spending time with family (whether we want to or not). On the 27th, approval times for files will be partially determined by how annoying our family members are. The faster they are approved, the more likely we are hiding from crazy Aunt Edith or our mother's "When do I get grandchildren" line of questioning. Should our family time be nice, files may take longer than the average to process and approve. On the following day Nov 28th file process times may also be delayed depending how long the food comas last. Dec 2-6...
Several forums, Tools and Resources have had thread prefixes added. This will allow for easier sorting by type. And add a touch of color to the forums. You can edit your threads to start using them anytime you want.
If you find a prefix that appears missing, add it to the thread in Forum feedback for review.
Today we would like to welcome a new moderator to the team, TimTower. Over the past few months since we have taken over Tim has shown himself to have an excellent understanding of the rules. We know that Tim will be an great addition to the team and are glad to welcome him to the team today!
Now we know there have been a lot of people that want to try and tackle the moderation role, and we have not been ignoring your requests. When we get these requests we simply sit back and watch the user and how they handle themselves on the forums. We may be adding more users in the near future to the team so if you see any other green people walking around the forums they are either aliens or moderators we are testing out! Aliens don't bite that much, right?
We have had several inquiries lately about the IRC channels #bukkit and #bukkitdev . We do not run those channels nor do we have any control over them. If you need to reach Curse staff the IRC channels are not the place to do so unless you cannot reach the forums at all.
Forum rules may not apply on the IRC channels. Make sure you are aware of the channel rules and abide by them. If you don't abide by the channel rules, messaging Curse staff will not work for appealing a ban. We do not run or control the IRC channels.
Again the IRC channels are run by former staff and community volunteers. Current staff do not set the rules cannot help you if you break them.
