Achievement Set Revisions

Revisions - Working on Sets with Existing Achievementslink

Revisions, as in working on a set that has existing achievements typically requires community approval by presenting your plan in the forum and presenting your plan in the #revision-voting channel in Discord. Not all changes need approval.

Preparing your planlink

Any developer wanting to revise a set need to:

  1. Prepare a plan for each
  2. Addition
  3. Demotion
  4. Achievement rework
  5. Change to leaderboards

  6. Resolve the open tickets for all achievements that will be kept in the set.

  7. Present the plan

  8. In the game page forum thread in full
  9. In #revision-voting post a link to it
  10. Notify the original developer(s), (no response is needed)

Getting Community Approvallink

Anyone in the community can express their concerns or objections. Allow time for discussion and for the developer to adjust their plan if they decide to. If any concerns or objections were expressed, regardless of the developer adjusting the plan, a vote will take place.

Once the discussion has settled a vote should be posted by a developer in the #revision-voting channel.

The vote is approved/rejected after 72 hours. It is pass/fail by simple majority.

When making a revisionlink

  • Do not make copies of existing achievements, or clone and demote existing copies. If there are issues with current achievements make fixes to the existing ones.

  • If you are adding a similar concept to one found in the set, where possible reuse the old concept and update it rather than make a new one.

This prevents players from needing to unnecessarily re-earn achievements, restricts needless changes to sets, and preserves good quality developer work and concepts.

No need for approval tolink

  • Update badges (But post old badges side-by-side to new in forum.)

  • Fix bugs

  • Update rich presence (But explain changes or post backup of previous in forum.)

  • Add battery save, cheat code, or password protections to other's work

  • Make changes to game page information and images (But make backup of previous images in forum.)

  • Make changes to an achievment where you are the original author and no other developer has revised it

Making changes to game icons/trophieslink

Due to the importance of game icons making changes to these these are handled through a community vote. See Updating Existing Game Icons.
