So I found the WATER mod page that I'm the co-author of and I see no way to edit the page. I am going to say that answer was, "no". It does not automatically add co-authors as curators or as co-authors to the mod pages on Mod Picker.
Per the page I linked:
If you are the original uploader of a mod on Nexus Mods, Steam Workshop, or Lover's Lab that is listed on Mod Picker you can gain automatic authorship
If you aren't the uploader we cannot grant automatic authorship because there is no way for us to automatically determine what Nexus Mods user account(s) have been given access to edit a mod page. If you know of a some kind of hidden Nexus API call we could use to determine who has been given access to the Nexus Mods page I'd be willing to look into incorporating that into our automatic authorship system, but to my knowledge no such route exists.
That is not a bad idea. If a user just needs to get the mod up, they can do so without much fuss. This would still create some re-work from either staff, authors, or curators so that is the trade-off.
Yeah, it could create some work. The main concern I have is IF users are able to use dummy masters they will ALWAYS do so without fail. This could become a problem if users would have gone to the trouble of acquiring the mods that have the master plugins if they didn't have the dummy masters option. On the other hand, it could get more mods submitted to Mod Picker faster (because it'd be easier to submit mods). The cost of not having accurate error information for patch plugins isn't too high, so I most likely will be fleshing this feature out sometime in the next few weeks.
Glad you shared that. I was looking for more information on what a "curator" was. The first time I encountered it was on the mod submission page so I was looking for information about it there. Didn't find it in text, nor in the videos (outdated?) I also tried to follow those instruction to become a curator to WATER, but the button to submit a request didn't do anything. Still an unfinished feature?
Curator Requests are working just fine (I just submitted one to test). It may have been that you tried to submit it at the exact moment I was rebooting the server (a 15-second window). I added you as a curator for WATER anyways. If you'd be willing to try submitting a curator request for another mod on the platform that would be great (to see if there is some kind of browser bug or something).
