We've decided to take a more open approach to nominating and choosing approvers.
If you would like to be an approver, you need to:
File an IT bug under the AlliedModders product
- Have posted at least two plugins that show in-depth knowledge of the AMX Mod X platform. Depending on the complexity of your work(s) you could get away with less.
- Have vouchers from two different members of the AMX Mod X Development Team and/or AMX Mod X Plugin Approval team. This means that they can attest to your knowledge and capabilities as an approver and plugin author.
and get the two people vouching for you to post replies.
The motivation behind this is to let the community promote people rather than go through me every single time. This isn't a guarantee you'll be an approver, there could be barring circumstances (past behavior, too many applicants, etc).
If you need to contact or solicit approvers it's probably best to ping them in IRC (irc.gamesurge.net, #sourcemod) or send them a PM. Don't spam people randomly, as that is annoying. Try to find people who are familiar with your work or are active in the community.
Valid people who can vouch for others:
