Every .zip file upload I attempt results in "Task Failed" for some reason. So I can't create a release.
There's a bug in the post-release validation - the step where it validates package (ie: init.luas exist, correct type of thing) and gathers dependencies. I've manually fixed it, and created an issue for the bug

What does "Unapproved ____" mean? In my notifications two of my submissions were listed this way. But I see no explanation.
I clicked approve and then realised I shouldn't have done that - I was going to create a thread / investigate it myself, but I can probably ask here. Are beds and doors drop in replacements for the beds and doors in MTG? Like, will any worlds be broken and will mods that use the beds/doors APIs still work

I assume it means your packages are no longer approved

Thanks for checking into the bug!

I'm happy to confirm that all of my mods named "Redux" are intended as seamless, drop-in replacements for the original versions. Meaning existing functionality is maintained for backwards compatibility. In some cases (like Beds Redux and Auth Redux), it may be necessary to run a command-line script to convert the data files. Instructions for using such scripts are mentioned in the ContentDB description of the package.

There is one caveat tho with Beds Redux. It requires a static_spawnpoint be set. This is due to a conflict with the Spawn mod of Minetest game. But that limitation is mentioned in the README.txt file.

Hello, I added my github repo with my texture pack in it to the server, and filled in the form, hit 'save' but I can't see my texture pack appearing in the database. What am I missing? The name of the tp is 'Artelhum'

I can't see that, which probably means that there was an error in the form. Look for text appearing next to a field (I should probably make it red)

Here is a screenshot of the page once I filled the form: (when I hit 'save' nothing really seems to happen, well the page reloads but it stays the same, with the fields filled)

Maybe my pack is having trouble being uploaded? there are 2000+ 250*250 png images in my pack.

Wow thanks a lot for this swift reaction! I can only imagine how much work you put into this. It's truly well done! I added in my texture pack.

Updates

  • Screenshot editor with reordering - you can now change a package's thumbnail without deleting all screenshots
  • Email notifications - you can receive notifications by email, either in a daily digest or immediately. This is fully configurable, by notification type.
  • Privacy policy and email unsubscribe - there's now a privacy policy, and all emails will contain an unsubscribe link (which will completely block the email from ContentDB).
  • New profile page and settings system - this should feel cleaner.
  • Package approval states - packages now go through "Work in Progress", "Ready for Review", and "Changes
    Needed" before getting approved, allowing for easier communication between editors and content creators.
  • New log in code - this should drastically improve reliability be removing the use of an unmaintained dependency.
  • Automatic meta updating on release - dependencies are now updated automatically.
  • Unfulfilled dependency warnings - packages now can't be approved if they require mods not yet on ContentDB.
  • Users can now delete their packages.
  • ...plus a tonne of bug fixes!

I'm trying to add my first package, but I have not been able to add any tags. No predefined tags show up so it shows an error saying you can't use custom tags. I can see in the console that something is undefined in the script causing it to fail.

I can confirm. Tried to add add wildcow mod, but no tags showed up when typing, like it used to happen before.

Thanks for the report. This has now been fixed - it was due to updating a dependency and missing its uses

What shall I do with these remains?
- Sign Bot and Minecart are already in the ContentDB
- all others are outdated and could be deleted, but there is not Discard or Delete button

When you open your mod in ContentDB the delete button is right of the written "Details".
Picture of a trash can.

[edit]
lol wrong answer. I should have looked at your picture first :D

They are already discarded, but there was a bug with the CSS that forgot about - I've fixed it now

As for sign bot and minecart, make sure ContentDB has the correct forum topics set for that package. It's possible it's a remanent of last year's forum data loss, which confused ContentDB

Thanks rubenwardy,

I adapted the forum numbers for both mods and the forum links to the mods work as expected.
But both mods are still on the "Unadded topics" page.

Yeah, that's due to the forum data loss last year confusing ContentDB. The topics lead to the wrong things. I'd ignore it for now, I'll fix that at some point

I find 2 badges for each of my mods in ContentDB.

something like this:

Code: Select all

[![ContentDB](https://content.minetest.net/packages/Gundul/water_life/shields/title/)](https://content.minetest.net/packages/Gundul/water_life/)
But what can I do with them ? Is it possible to show them in the signature here in the forum ?
Or only for websites with html code ?

Usually within a few days to a week, it depends on which editors (=reviewers) are around. You can create a thread on ContentDB to pester them to review

I found a bug. If you download my mod mcg_lockworkshop from content DB it will says 1.1_stable is latest release, but instead it download you 1.0_stable, even if not clicked on the download button but release title.

packages now can't be approved if they require mods not yet on ContentDB.
So, releasing own content now entirely depends on the willingness of other people to release their content on the CDB?
