I must say that I am thrilled that Codename Zulu won the Best Storyline award! I would never have thought that my first ever DYOM project would go on to become such a popular mission series, I must thank everyone for their support, both during and after the development of the mission pack, without any of that, the series would've fallen flat on it's face shortly after I started working on it (You have to admit, the Beta missions are quite bad compared to their revamped versions from the finished pack).
Now, I understand that at this moment in time, the first Beta mission is currently pinned on the site because the full pack isn't there. I've joined the DYOM website and made sure that the link to GTAGarage, where the mission pack can be found, is in the description of the Beta mission, but I'm quite sure that it would be better if the entire series is hosted on the DYOM site.
Now, what I want to know is how would I do that. To my understanding, the Storylines section is reserved for missions that use V6's Storyline function, and missions is for the standard single mission uploads. Codename: Zulu was made using V5, but it spans four Acts at a total of 22 missions. It does not utilise the Storyline function, and instead relies on the end-user completing one Act, and then removing those files and replacing them with the files from the next Act.
Would it be better if the entire pack was uploaded to the Storylines section, and it clearly stated in the description that it was made with V5 and therefore has no Storyline function? Or is it possible for the entire pack to be uploaded into the missions section as a single .zip or .rar archive? If either of these options are chosen, could the resulting new page be pinned instead of the current BETA mission page?
