let people put in their mods with permission, and if they don't get a response within a specified timeframe (i think a month is a bit too long, but i read that you have reasons to believe otherwise, its your choice) then add it to a thread as a "junk mod", seperate from the original mod they are overlapping, but toss it if anyone doesn't agree with them. that way if there is a problem it'll be taken care of quick and quiet, and if there isn't, we don't have to wait months to see someone's shining (and hopefully helpful) talents at work. Besides, just imagine if Troika gave you the official toolset, but then said you guys couldn't make public mods. It's all great for those of you who can and will mod, but what about us lazy, good-for-nothings who would rather apreciate the work others have generously offered than attempt to make a laughable attempt at seeming to try to think about making one ourselves? and it will take off some of the workload if you can give off some of the updates to more people who you found through submitted their own updates. After all, are you here to fix a potentially great, but horribly made game, or are you here to make mods that fix it to an extent, but end there because you haven't visited in a little while, or are close-minded towards outside assistance?
