We don’t want people compiling unfinished builds from GitHub. We don’t want you compiling them, and we CERTAINLY don’t want anyone else compiling them and distributing them around like some sort of secret deal (which multiple people have been caught doing). Not touching the GitHub has always been a rule of ours. We have MANY sources where we talk about progress other than discord: these forums, the wiki, the twitter, the instagram. Use one of them instead of compiling our code without our permission. We specifically took down the GitHub because of this behavior.
I already mentioned some of those sources in my last post: You guys favor the discord to such a large extent that news outside is either late or completely forgotten in some cases.
I never once distributed a compiled build and very rarely compiled them in the first place except when I wanted to check new features ingame and cross mod interations that were added, the problem is im extremely lazy and compiling is work. I mainly checked the source from time to time to see what was changed or added and followed commits.
Both of which are impossible now. Seriously, you plug the discord almost as much as mod news( even the most recent twitter post had a discord plug in it.. ) when some people simply can't or won't join.. you need a more reliable and quicker way to update mods news outside of discord since it's lacking to a high degree and discord is pretty much behind a wall for some( this news issue is a problem ive explained to a few mod creators when everyone started swapping to discord for news.. yet I was ignored for the reason "It's easy so it'll work out" ).
Also your post came off as a bit too hostile in my personal opinion. Ive never once seen anywhere that you don't want others compiling a open source mod so I didn't know, yet you stress it no less then 3 times( yes you posted on twitter about it recently but that was waaaay after the fact since ive been checking the code and compiling sincd 1.10.2 versions ).
It's the internet. It will happen one way or another. Simple as that.
Your mods one of very few that actually went closed source simply because of a few idiots that im aware of
