OK. So best way is to release things in mods site.
But I want to to attract users to my forum.
I think it is better to (for plugins) to release 2 versions: lite and pro. For pro version support will be provided in my forum only. Is an alternative...

You can add your website in many places (mod db, license page, preview page, release thread).

Just don't create a release thread and give support only at your site, or ignore thread support posts.
Support PM's will be ignored. Angel

Just put a link to your website in the description saying "Download the most upto date version of this theme with support and more here" People will do it.
You know what's weird? Me.

It's just a preference I guess. I am not saying I will not do it. I am considering
it, highly.

Completely understandble. Great point.

This is not about threads. I wanted to have a thread here and offer full support in the thread and via personal messages. I just didn't want to HAVE TO have it on the mod site.

Thats the problem we used to have before the rule was introduced. People would post a thread, and link the download to their own site. Then they would close down their site for a variety of reasons, but the thread still remained. We ended up with dozens of threads with broken links. By forcing the download to be on the mods site, we can be sure the download links wont go down Smile

What's your actual reasoning for not wanting to have it uploaded in another location?? In what way does it detriment you??
Can you still feel the butterflies?

Free never tasted like pudding.

Unless someone deletes the theme/plugin from the mod site? :p

I do not think this will ever happen without a very good reason.
