I agree. I started using Coordinated Universal time (GMT) 40 some-odd years ago because that's used for international radio logs. I see the usefulness of a standard date format, except in the East pacific where they'll still argue if it's Thursday or Friday2016-11-04 :: Everyone should use ISO 8601 for dates.

Slowpoke has said that it looks like 1.10.2 will be the gold standard for a while, as far as FtB is concerned. Recent history has shown that older mods can be capable of running on 1.10.2 (Forgecraft is still running many) and hopefully 1.11.x will be just as capable of running 1.10.2 mods. Several Mojang tweets have indicated that no major changes will be implemented for a while... "See you in 1.15" was one I saw, but this may be exaggeration.So...Minecraft 1.11 is coming out soon. When forge is out for it, will the new infinity packs be 1.11, or will they still be 1.10.2?
I'd assume the modding scene is going to stick to 1.10.2 for a while. Of course that depends on if mods are able to just port up like 1.9 and 1.10 mods. It'd be nice if mods could jump right up, always cool playing on the cutting edge of MC.So...Minecraft 1.11 is coming out soon. When forge is out for it, will the new infinity packs be 1.11, or will they still be 1.10.2?
When has there been a case where it wasn't possible to respect those wishes?Our primary goals are to respect the wishes of mod developers irrespective of any licences that may be attached to a mod (In other words if a mod developer wishes us not to use a mod, even though the license says that legally we can. Then where possible we will respect those wishes.)
Why this philosophy rather than packs targeted at different groups of people?When designing our modpacks we do our best to ensure that our packs are accessible to as wide a base as possible.
This seems a bit late in the process to be checking for leaks to me. Can you explain why you look at art and configs before leaks? Who is responsible for fixing them in the cases of a flaw in the mod and cross mod issues before the hard set date you've already set by this point?Beta Testing
During beta testing pack developers will start to refine the configs and make any potential balance changes that need to be made. In addition to this we also start to profile the servers looking for potential memory leaks and other stability issues.
What i have been wondering for awhile now is what motivates the team to make packs? I have heard it isn't for any sort of remuneration. Would like to know what it is though.Well this is closer to news about released modpacks. You at least explain a method behind the madness even though it's explained using words such as rough, potential, may, try, and other phrases of uncertainty. Lots of tries in there but glad stability is now the most important feature. Some questions I have.
Well I did everything and then searched the name and it wasn't there. But it finally show up when I post it did above.It didn't take all that long... I had it downloaded before DWs text hit Twitter, probably because I was spamming the "Sort By" box fairly often ... In fact, and this could be inaccurate software, the pack said "0 downloads" when I got it.
