Seems like a job for you admin types to fix then.
Maybe it's my frame of mind, but this seems hostile. Also I learned from SH's latest post that this does work if you follow the file, but it's not like I could access the site's coding to change it if it weren't.
Looking at one of my own mods, I can see that is (still) untrue.
The issue is that the mod author - if he uploaded it himself - didn't "follow" his file. Following the file let's folks know if there's a notification. In addition to the actual download page, this also applies to the Mod Release announcement page that's auto-created as well.
Okay, I am wrong. However, double-checking this on my latest file, I have to wonder:
I can't see it in the settings if it's there, but it seems that DS will set a mod author to auto-follow the support thread that is created when they upload a file, but will not auto-follow the page in the Downloads section.
Is that correct? Or am I just missing a checkbox somewhere?
