I've just noticed there is someone else working on this MOD .. As it is clear from my screen shots I have done most of the ACP coding and I was just brushing up code for my first Alpha release .. What can MOD Team suggest in this case?
EDIT: I do accept my mistake that I didnt notify anyone when I started work on this MOD, my reason was I'll wait till I've released Alpha ..

I know it may be easier to just add or replace certain code lines but in the same sense if the mod has its own files that are already modified and only require that the modded files be added to the pre-existing ones and possibly only require adding language coding then you wont have modded pre-existing files that wont work with the simplest of mods that only require minimal coding thats only added to pre-existing coding.
There are alot of mods that require a user to upload and overwrite files that already exists such as the profile body or index page and if you already have those modified suggest to the user to either disregard the already modified board they have and use the new mod they want or continue to use the modified board they have and disregard the new mod they want added to their board.
