### About EasyMOD Compliant

Posted:

**Tue Aug 31, 2004 9:14 pm**Recently some MOD authors have become confused about EasyMOD and their MODs being EasyMOD Compliant. Currently the EasyMOD Standards haven't been written so no MODs can follow these standards (except Nuttzy's).

If a MOD is EasyMOD Compliant, it means it will install nicely with other MODs. There shouldn't be any problems because of how the MOD was written. EasyMOD will install any MOD on a virgin board no matter how the MOD is written as long as it follows a format that EasyMOD can read.

To show that a MOD is EasyMOD Compliant, Nuttzy has chosen to add a new line at the top of the MOD Template. Some MOD Authors have been adding this to their MOD Template. They have been claiming they are following standards which haven't been written yet so they don't even know what they are.

Some may be thinking this new line is to tell people that their MOD will install using EasyMOD. This isn't the case. It is to show that your MOD follows EasyMOD's Standards.

Since EasyMOD installs any MODs on a virgin install of phpBB, there is no reason that you need to put that your MOD will install using EasyMOD. However if MOD Authors still wants to tell users that his or her MOD will install using EasyMOD, he or she can put this in the Author Notes using any wording that he or she likes that doesn't imply that his or her MOD is EasyMOD Compliant. The following are acceptable lines that MOD Authors can use, if they would like to.

If we, the MOD Team, see any MODs submitted to the MOD Database with the new line which is for EasyMOD Compliant or if the MOD suggests that they are EasyMOD Compliant, we will deny those MODs. It isn't part of the current MOD Template and you are claiming something which your MOD isn't.
