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
Our discord is the place we're more comfortable with interacting with our community, so of course there will be nuggets that slip out here and there. You seem hell bent on not using discord and that's your prerogative but don't demand for us to change something that is very simple and comfortable just because of your whims.
The GitHub was open source yes, until that fact was abused. We cannot stress enough how much we don't want people outside of dev/people we trust getting their hands on our unreleased builds. It doesn't matter what you use them for or what your intentions are. There is a reason that beta versions are restrictive- because if you mess up your PC while trying to play with a pirated version of our mod we're still responsible. We have many young fans and that could lead to disaster.
