Rob,is there a way to have edit option for teampack requests.For example some requests could be way too long on list,so after some while we could get few cuts from those packs.It would be a lot easier to just change the pack with new one with less images by edit,rather than posting\re-posting again...

I don't fully understand what you've said. Do you mean someone uploads a pack, you cut half the images and then want to update the request so it only has the other half?
No,for example I was collecting all undone requests on old forum as mixpacks.For example Mixpack 1 had 20 images,in past year or more,some of them are done,and in that case,I was just changing download link,without fully re-posting.

Do you mean you would gather 20 requests that hadnt been fulfilled and turn them into one request as a mix pack and then remove the 20 individual requests?
Nope mate,for example today I've made Improvement Thread Mixpack 10 with 15 images,someone done just 3 from there by free will wich are improvements,and I've found 5 better sources next month wich I wanna replace in original pack to make easier job for cutters.So it's good option to edit\update my original request,now with 12 images (5 better source) without making new mixpack request...

Ah okay. Does that ever confuse people, lets say someone downloaded the pack and is in the process of cutting them or something and then the pack changes halfway through?

If someone is already working on that pack,he will mark that,since that's the one of the options right now...we got to have an edit option for our requests as before,no matter is it teampack or individual request (imp\miss).

Okay so you want an edit button so that you can upload a different request. But if that file is already marked as being made, you don't want that option to be available? Or what should happen instead?

I understand that you want an edit button, but I just want more information about how best to handle different scenarios so I can code it in.

Your messages are quite vague yet blunt at the moment, if you give me as detailed an explanation as possible and i'm sure I can add it
@Rob
After pressing the "View Completed Requests" button (under Messi's image) ,the "Completed Date" column is showing current time and date instead of actual time of upload.
Very easy to use! Good job!

If I've understand Baja right, he wants a modify submitted file button for the original requester and/or mods, both for teampacks/mixpacks and for individual images.

This way, they can amend their submission should it be required. In teampacks/mixpacks, it's been known to happen that cutters only complete a partial amount of the request, be it through choice or through lack of cutting expertise, although it's not that common. As for individual images, it's not infrequent that requesters do not provide the best source image available.
Is it possible to add "example images" for team and mixpack requests? A lot of the requests are rar-files which doesnt work with the preview function. In the team request thread the users had to post examples, is it possbible to add this to the system as well. Just to be able to see what kind of images are included

It's on the to-do list
*EDIT* Never mind!

It would be helpful on the new completed requests page that if you downloaded a face it tells you you downloaded it like it does with the facepack megapack releases

I agree, it would be most helpful and that was one of the proposals we put forward for Rob to consider. Another was for the correct time completed to be displayed on this screen, rather than the time the completed request list was last generated, as at present.

However, he indicated that for the time being he was concentrating on other sections of the site and forums ahead of the FM17 release and that any non-urgent modifications to our request forum are to be put on hold until such time he can take them on. Probably quite soon to be honest, but I can't promise anything instant.

For the time being, while not ideal, the situation does not require immediate attention imo, so we'll just have to bear it for a while

I'm just fixing the date on the completed packs page.

Here's my current todo list should be done by the end of the week

  1. Make emails optional
  2. Notifier requester and cutter when there is a comment
  3. Moderator feedback when rejecting a request
  4. Show preview of cut with ability to change background to black
  5. Highlight downloaded cuts
  6. Stop emails when uploading completed requests

Is the old teampack request thread being updated? I get that new requests are through the new system but I assume that we can still take the old ones but I want to check that they are being removed as and when they are done.

In terms of future enhancements, my request would be the ability to search by country for the teampacks. Based on past experience it wont be that long before the list spreads over several pages and it would be good to be able to quickly find ones from particular location eg if i want to do an obscure English non-league mixpack it will be hard to find if i can only sort by date

The new system is great for individual requests. Good work!!!
One more question. If we have a missing/improvement that we've done that wasn't requested, where should that be put?

I can look into searching by country but it will be a little more time consuming so don't expect it too soon.

There's an "Upload Pack" button, check the attached screenshot
Issues with single image requests getting pushed down and never done, especially not too well known players.

The reality is that not all the cuts will get cut, sadly. Some due to the quality of the source and some because we simply don't have as much cutters as would be needed to deal with all the requests. I definitely don't think it's an issue with the identity of the players as plenty more obscure players (and from worse sources sometimes) have been cut recently since you made your request 10 days ago.

The good thing with the new system and the ability to filter requests by category and status is that it is very easy for cutters to see which images are still pending, so there's less risk of them getting lost in previous pages as on the forum. Periodically, I also intend to collect all the uncut images and request them as a mixpack, as was done in the forum previously.

Out of 19 pages of requests so far, 12 whole pages have been completed and 2 rejected. Another 3 pages are pending teampack requests. All in all, I think that's a very good proportion, to be honest.

One alternative is to give cutting a go yourself. It's really not as hard as you would think it is and you would be able to include the cuts in your game more quickly, while contributing to the megapack and the community

Adding to what Rob already said, I'm afraid I've given up on the old teampack request thread as it was quite simply unmanageable. tuodi8shi informed me that he didn't have time to take care of it on the day that the new request forum was opened and it seemed the right time to move on.

I just don't have the time at present to download all the 500 or so files and re-upload them into the new system, much as I would like to. It's a pity as there are plenty of good sources in there, but it did become a bit of a free-for-all with plenty of requests made for non-improvements. Requesters are of course welcome to reupload their files themselves onto the new system and cutters to take any of them on, naturally.

When uploading single improvments or missing images I get a notification after each upload, as if I requested the cut. Would be great if these notifications were disabled, if possible
Is it allowed to make a re-request after a week/2weeks or so?

Why would you need to do so? The request is there in the system. If, after a while, it is not cut, then it'll be collected into the usual mixpack roundup.

Ah I didn't realise that, sorry i'll try and fix that.

No worries, we look forward to seeing you become a regular presence here.

Actually, it's not letting me save your attachment for same reason. Can you upload it in that section yourself?

Have a look at the attachment to see where it should be uploaded from
