I see myself in the list, but I don't have an actual PoPOT account.

1. Does the inactive account (e.g. Amogh Datar) have a user account (e.g. atrueprincefanfrom2018) ?
2. If so, which of the two account names does the mod author prefer to use ?
Yes, I have "Amogh Datar" account at PoPOT, it's inactive and the user account that I use is atrueprincefanfrom2018. I prefer the latter (atrueprincefanfrom2018).

It's gonna be tough time for you :(

If you ever create an account, for example to add a new mod (once that functionality is live), I can rename that new user account to "David" and then attach David's Levels to it.

Thanks for the feedback.
And, done.

Oh, don't worry, this is almost no work. For your account(s), I simply executed:

Code: Select all

UPDATE `popot_mod` SET author1_id='187' WHERE (author1_id='212');
UPDATE `popot_mod` SET author2_id='187' WHERE (author2_id='212');
UPDATE `popot_mod` SET author3_id='187' WHERE (author3_id='212');
UPDATE `popot_user` SET nick='Unused001' WHERE (nick='Amogh Datar');

Yeah, not for my account, but for others. I'm sure there are gonna be 5 to 6 different cases of the people (and half of them being inactive). Maybe it's time for you to convert inactive people into active ones by mailing them to the post.

I've just added two new mods to PoPOT manually (Amogh's Levelset 1 and Youran's Levelset 1).
With the exception of Shauing's upcoming SNES mod, I will temporarily (1-2 months, I expect) not add new mods.
This will allow me to focus on adding the new functionality.
This is taking longer than expected.
It's still an ongoing project.
Okay, the first part is finally done: users can now submit mods.
https://www.popot.org/custom_levels.php?action=Submit

Next up, I will work on a feature that allows users to subscribe to receiving notifications about newly added mods.
Once that is done, I will release all the website's source code as popot.org 3.0.
And then we'll go from there with further improvements.

Congrats!

And feature to edit the mods?

Two suggestions:
1. The submit mod link is somehow not really easy to find. But I don't know how you could improve it.
2. The header image seems to have changed styling. The mod name for example, this is in black. I think it was white?

I've implemented this.
And I've just emailed all PoPOT users about this new feature; pointed them to the Settings page.

I'll now further improve the website's source code, and then publish it as popot.org 3.0.

Also, on submit page, it would be better if you also link to this thread. So people might improve the quality of mods thereby making sure player enjoys it.

P.S: And/or in Apoplexy (rather every editor).

Actually, I've changed my mind and will implement mod editing functionality for users before releasing the new source code.
Because a new source code release will be more valuable if it includes that feature.

By the way, why it's NOT on GitHub?

Edit: Also if you get some time, do consider changing the tricks video to load asynchronously. Maybe, load them on the click of the trick number? They load quite slow and that was actually the primary reason that I created this script. You could also look into this guide.

Not everything has to be on GitHub. :)

Is it better now?
(It's difficult for me to verify, because my connection and PC are relatively fast.)

You could throttle down the internet connection in Google Chrome Developer mode to test it - if you want. You could check this and this.

And no - not as I was expecting, but maybe I'll have to just blame it on my internet connection...
