We appreciate all the feedback from the community around the upcoming moderation changes for the US holidays and transfer to Overwolf. Based on your feedback, we’ve worked with our moderation team and have amended our timeline to include the following:

  • 11/25 — At 12pm, we will stop new project moderation. This means if you create a project for the first time, you will have to wait until after 11/30 for it to be approved. We will continue moderating updates to current addons and mods.
  • 11/25–11/29 — We will have moderators taking shifts over this time in order to approve file updates for addons and mods.
  • On 11/30addons will only be available via the CurseForge app. Additionally, the mods tab will no longer be available in the Twitch Desktop App.

CurseForge will still go into read only mode on 11/30 while we work on transferring things to Overwolf. Our plan is to get the website back online first in order for authors to upload updates to their projects.

Key takeaway: Moderation for WoW addon updates and other game mod updates will continue until we start the read-only mode on 11/30. Overall moderation will resume back to normal by 12/3. The Twitch Desktop and CurseForge apps will still work throughout this time, and they will continue to receive addon updates from any addons uploaded before read-only starts. Starting on 11/30, the mods tab will no longer be available in the Twitch Desktop App.
