Notes for Authors

Just wanted to make you guys aware of a couple things:

First, we have reset the "this file works with" flag to now show for the upcoming 3.1 content patch.

Second, we have updated the Upload/Update Rules and Disclaimer to include two new lines:
1) Under the "Additional Compilations Rules" we have added
  • If the WTF is included, all personal information must be changed to generic terms.
2) Under the Disclaimer we have added

I don't quite understand what this means. Because I thought we were suppose to do this before?

Are you referring to AddOn profiles and such including server name and characters? Or are you referring to the Config.wtf?

You were supposed to do this before, but it didn't spell it out clearly in the rules.

Both. Any personal information you have (Account name, server, character) needs to be changed to generic terms. A lot of people forget to change that information. We always put those ones on hold until the compilation creator changes the terms and send them a PM reminding them. Adding it to the "rules" is just another way to remind people.

I have updated my guide, "Packaging up your UI to share with others." to reflect these changes.
