sudden change of module name
« on: September 29, 2019, 09:29:00 »

hey

ive realized when i uploaded my module "GOO.MOD" it suddenly changed itself to "nihilism_-_goo.MOD" is there any way to rename it back to GOO.MOD after or before it gets approved?

No there isn't, because there is already a module of the same name. This is exactly why we recommend to always add your artist name to avoid us having to rename the file for you.

alright and is it possible to add a prefix to all of my modules then? (N_ would be enough) it would mitigate the problem in the future so there's no other modules with same name, hopefully
i apologize if i caused any inconveniences

It would be a lot of manual work so I'd prefer if you just did it for any future uploads, and we keep the old ones as-is. I don't think it's much of an inconvenience given that they can be all found from the same artist profile. I also have a couple of old songs using a different prefix until I decided to change the prefix after some years.
