Quote from: Hawk_UK on March 03, 2014, 11:20:54 AMIf dibu could indicate whether he would prefer to have others host a share of separate bike mod classes(If it's decided to go down that route) or whether there would be complications by doing that as far as co-ordination and avoiding data mismatches, etc, etc? Maybe it's better to keep the hosting to one person to help keep the hosting 100% reliable and well organised, namely dibu.
Quote from: dibu on March 03, 2014, 05:19:13 PMI'm also for separating bikes and paints to keep the mod smaller. (At the servers I don't need them anyway).
Quote from: dibu on March 03, 2014, 05:19:13 PMWhat I can do is to stop running open MOD servers and run the servers with special categories (e.g. GP1000, GP500, SSP, scooter ...). Then people only need to install the bikes of the category which they want to use.For the server admin this means to install the complete mod. Klax's 'Bike MODs No Paints' MEGA folder is ideal for this. What I can't do is running servers for bike classes (e.g. GP, WSBK, Endurance ...). It will be simply too much work - see technical details.

Only to be altered or updated by Author or forum admin about new version releases.Pinning does not make sense once you have too many pinned topics.Locking also is problematic, as once locked only an admin will be able to edit/reply (e.g. right now I cannot edit the "GPB unofficial guide", even if I wrote it, as I locked it at the time and I no longer have admin rights). Having only the admins to change the posts may be a bit of a burden (for them and for the authours).Ony thing I can think is:Each author has one topic per bike (not locked, not pinned).An admin could create a locked and pinned topic that references all the bikes (more or less as the WIP topic).MaX.
Quote from: PeterV on March 03, 2014, 06:51:36 PMI think its me reading it wrong but.... special categories Gp1000, GP500,SSP,scooter, is that not the same as GP, WSBK, Endurance ?They are both times categories, so for my dumb brain it seems like the same amount of work? please enlighten me Dibu.
