May I suggest checking the permissions for the Titania Bug Tracker?

There does not seem to be any access to it for regular users right now.

I was talking about the Bug Tracker, not the database itself.

That should be corrected now and you should be able to see the tracker. Let us know if you still can't. Thanks.

Just checked it out, and I think it's thoroughly impressive! :). The MOD and Style database have been screaming out for an update of some kind for quite a while now, and you guys have just hit the nail on the head - it's perfect.
FAQs
Go to the overview page of your contribution and click at the "FAQ" tab. There, you'll be able to add a new frequently asked question to the page by clicking the New FAQ button. There you can type the question and answer in the box, and give it an appropriate title. You can choose to have the FAQ to be available to the public, or have it to be limited to just authors, when it's still work in process or it's some instruction to your co-authors. This will display the "author-only" icon in that FAQ's row: Image

Support/Discussion
Go to the overview page of your contribution and click at the "Support/Discussion" tab. There, your users are able to start a new topic for an issue that the meet or something that isn't clear to them. We believe it's easier to have it split up in multiple topics having one topic per issue instead of having only one huge support topic. That makes it easier to handle and see what still needs to be done.
Love these! :). My Absolution release topic is 20+ pages long - and it can be frustrating for someone using my style to filter through the 20 pages to find the answer they're looking for. From my point of view it's frustrating to keep telling users something that's already been covered in the topic time and time again. So the FAQ page is a perfect solution. :)

Same kind of thing applies for the support / discussion forum tab. It can be a nightmare giving support to several users at once in the same topic. Multiple browser tabs open copying / pasting quotes and solutions. The Support tab is going to be such a huge convenience for not only the style author, but also the end style user. Sometimes when the support requests piled up in a topic you can accidentally skip past someone's support request, they get frustrated and don't bother coming back. Now their issue will be seen and will receive the undivided attention from the style author. :)

Finally, I love how it's integrated with the .com website design, and compliments are sleek / clean style (Unlike the cluttered Bug tracker and Wiki).

Can't wait to get stuck in. Big thanks to the developers :)

Edit: Can I suggest adding "Downloads" to the "Sort by:" menu?

Looks great! :D Perfect solution.

One little thing, with Internet Explorer the tabs on a contribution page look like this:

In FireFox they're just like it should be. Just a tiny detail :)
Very nice work.

I love it, but what a shame that I submitted my latest mod last night just before you guys introduced this :mrgreen:

I have some concerns though:

I have no overview whats happening and what is new. What if I want to see the newest mods?
It makes it harder to see what is happening in the support for the different mods.

We'll be working on adding some stats to the front page of the CDB soon such as latest approved styles, etc.

Great work guys :)

I am just a little confused. This DB is only for MODs and styles approved by phpbb mods team, or also for beta versions?

And so board [3.0.x] MOD Database Releases will be locked?
