Mod advices

So you got a new mod uploaded. Congrats to you for your hard work. Now let's prepare it for the forum.

It can be a whole new level, a quest, or a new game. What matters is that you follow these guidelines below:

Topic title:
It's a good idea to actually name the topic after your modification.

Be modest:
Superlatives ain't the best way to go, because this way you risk to hype up a mod that might not even be worth hyping at all. I know exactly how it feels to make a really good song. In the start I always posted a lot of superlatives like:

Hi dudes, I've composed a totally splendid song that surely will rock the top charts allover the world. Care to listen at it?

Guess how many actualy listened to my song. There where a few, and they gave me a truckload of hatred for hyping my song, that wasn't even good to begin with.

What's your mod called?

Who came up with this mod?
