Mod-Description-Template

This is under discussion! Please look into the Mod-Header Discussion!



This is the try to introduce nicer, standardized, machine-readable and more useful mod-descriptions.
Please discuss this in the Mod-discussion board

The mod-description has two parts, a header and a body - exactly like Hypertext Transfer Protocol.
The header-names are not upper/lower-case-sensitive. A header can be only one line.
Between header and body there must be a blank line, like HTTP.
More can follow in the body, but that is not bounded to a form. Spoilers can/should be used to hide not not so interesting part.
Any heading here can be used...

Please press SELECT ALL, then copy/paste this:

Code: Select all
