Hello modders,

I'm going to drop a note here regarding the upcoming Upcoming Maps (heh) rework. What's basically going to happen is that the current Upcoming Maps forum will be archived and replaced with a new, separate Upcoming Projects system. It will function much in the same way, but the key differences will be:

  • managed via a separate back-end system similar to articles and reviews
  • can be updated and edited by several authors
  • offers no discussion possibility, HOWEVER can be linked up to a Project Presentation forum thread to display a highlighted link to it
  • entries can be subscribed to, meaning that any subscriber will receive a notification about project updates on their sidebar userbox

You are advised to back-up any important information from your Upcoming Maps thread and prepare for deployment of the Upcoming Projects system sometime within the next months. UM threads will be archived below and remain visible, but you won't be able to edit or post anymore.

Stay tuned for more information!

Great! One question though: Will project updates differ from simply posting in the project's Project Presentation thread? It'd be nice to have the open-floor discussion be available to forum goers, but subscribers can still just receive notifications when a 'major' update occurs.

You'll want to either keep your updates in the Upcoming Project entry, or make small entry edits linking to the update forum post so that your subscribers will also get the notification that something changed.
