    posted a message on Curseforge add-on API issues

    This concerns the following add-on: https://www.curseforge.com/wow/addons/gargul


    My add-on has been approved over 48 hours ago and it's still not picked up by the curseforge add-on manager or returned by the curseforge API for either Era (1.14.1) or TBC (2.5.3).


    I'd like a response on this ASAP! As it stands now I have literally zero control over the version my target audience gets to see which doesn't exactly motivate me to keep updating my add-on regularly. It also puts me in a bad spot, because I let people know something has been fixed or added yet they still can't see it two days later.


    Also, in the case of a game-breaking bug like an infinite loop, rolling out a hotfix would be near-impossible.


    PS: By just looking at the download numbers you can clearly see something is wrong here!

    I've been asking myself the same question.


    The addon I maintain gets updated very regularly, sometimes every day or at least multiple times a week.


    I've seen major/minor releases with thousands of lines changed be approved instantly while others with only 1/2 line changes (bugfix for example) taking an hour: https://www.curseforge.com/wow/addons/gargul/files/3453937. This leads me to believe that there are no manual steps involved in the approval process or them being taken with a grain of salt at the very least.


    I've also uploaded the same addon for two versions recently (for 1.13.7 and 2.5.2), with the 1.13.7 version being approved instantly and the 2.5.2 (aka the more important one) taking hours even though the only change was a number in the toc file. At some point I archived and deleted the 2.5.2 version, uploaded the same one again after which it was approved instantly.


    I'm grateful for CurseForge and similar platforms and all the effort the maintainers put in it don't get me wrong, but the last thing you want as an add-on developer or distribution platform is updates (that potentially fix crucial bugs) being stuck in limbo for no apparent reason.
