Announcing the User Contribution Library

All,

We've created a new User Contribution Library on the website where you can upload your scripts/applications/plug-ins, and a companion Forum to support it. On the top of the User Contribution page, you'll find a link to submit your solutions. Here's the recommendations for submitting an item:

  1. Write a ReadMe.txt file that contains the information you enter in this form.
  2. Collect up all parts of your solution (ReadMe file, scripts, applications, etc.) into a single folder. Compress the folder into a .zip file by right-clicking (or control key-clicking) on it and selecting the Compress "Your Folder Name Here" menu item. This archive .zip file is what you should upload to the site. NOTE: to avoid any complications, please make sure the filename of the archive .zip file doesn't contain any spaces or special characters.
  3. Fill out as much of the rest of the form as possible; this will help potential downloaders understand if your solution is right for them before they download, install, and try it.
  4. If you don't have a website or blog of your own, you might want to post a new topic on the User Contributions Forum announcing the availability of your solution and then link to that in the "Additional Information URL" field. That way, users that have questions will have a place to go to ask questions and make comments.

Following these steps will make your submission more useful and allow you to get feedback and ideas on enhancements.

And, thanks for all the good contributions!

Matt & Jay

Re: Announcing the User Contribution Library

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to let you know that we've made some exciting new changes to the File Library. First, each section is expandable/collapsable so you can more easily see just what you're looking for. Second, we've added a search function - just type in a search term or two and it'll find matches. Lastly, for those of you contributing to it, we've made the icon for each entry a link to that specific entry - so when you want to link to your specific entry you have a URL for it (just right click the icon and select copy link).

We hope this helps people more easily find what they're looking for in the library - it's starting to really get popular!

Thanks,
Jay & Matt
