Sorry, I think you guys missed my point. Nothing to do with forcing at all. Many of the authors I know have more recent versions and would like to get the updated ones there, but have been unable to whilst the upload bot has been failing. There have been a number of core releases since some of those scripts went up there, some are very out of date (obsolete functions), others were broken by changes in core. Besides its a little courtesy for the author, let 'em know you like the script, report any bugs, have they got an update?, ask about their coding style, technical choices. A lot of us who have contributed many scripts to the public sphere, do not object to such questions/comments, many friends have been made through these interchanges. Cheers, Allen K
