... easyMOD, what would you think of this one (the idea more than the graphic) ?

meaning : you can install this mod with easyMOD on most configurations.

EMF, thats a good idea to have right now so that everyone isn't calling their MODs EMC even thought the standards aren't complete.

This is more of a suggestion so I'm moving it there.

The thing is, the image included in the EasyMOD package is "EasyMOD Compatible" when it should be "EasyMOD Compliant" for EMC MODs, and then using the already existing image for those that are installable on most EM systems. The EM Compliant image has been at the bottom of the EasyMOD Version Changer, but no one ever seemed to notice.

Of course, because at this time only one mod is EMC : Country flags.

Compatible and Compliant are really too close to not drive the reader to a misundestanding. Friendly is more appropriate (as shortage as meaning).

I think it's a good idea, in particular before the EMC certification could start, but even after.

EMF should be: the author MOD says his MOD can be installed by EM.
EMC should be: the MOD has been certified by the phpBB MOD team.

EMC could means...
- EasyMOD Compliant
- EasyMOD Compatible
- EasyMOD Certified
...that's not the most important, it's the same idea and the same initials.

Ptirhiik's one is different (if I've well understand), and can be useful IMO :)

I'd rather not have any "official" tags until at least the SQL portion of EM is done. I may even want to wait until dealing with multiple langs and styles is all ironed out. I don't like the idea of saying something works with certain standards when the standards keep changing ;)
