Full Version: New part submission policies
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
In preparation for the upcoming Parts Tracker software refresh, the following policies will be put into place effective immediately:

!LDRAW_ORG type vs. part folder

"Part" and "Shortcut" -> "parts"
"Subpart" -> "parts\s"
"Primitive" -> "p"
"48_Primitive" -> "p\48"
"8_Primitive" -> "p\8"

This rule is already mostly enforced by the current PT but a few parts have slipped through the cracks and will be strictly enforced by the new software. Mismatch is a holdable error.
Edit: This is now enforced by the new part submission validation.


Excluding header edits by an admin (those will be covered separately), if you edit a file in any way, you must have a !HISTORY line in the file. This is required by CC BY 2.0/4.0 and is currently not enforced by the PT. Lack of !HISTORY is a holdable error.
Note: if you already have a !HISTORY line for the part's current release iteration, you don't have to create a new entry, just add to the existing entry.
