Posting unofficial modules in the off-topic section wouldn't help much. They wouldn't be exposed publicly and they would clutter a section that wasn't intended for them.

People who really have an urge to post music made with unofficial builds of FT can post NSFs and probably a module that partially works in vanilla FT (although this defeats the purpose of tracking a song in another build). In my opinion, it's something that shouldn't be abused though, mostly because posting FTMs is a lot more encouraged than posting NSFs (although the latter is welcome regardless). However authors should be given the choice to not distribute the sources too, but this isn't related to this discussion.

jsr has stated in this thread that he's not interested in hosting songs that aren't compatible with vanilla FT, so a new subforum won't be coming anytime soon. Even then, this is the FamiTracker forums after all. It would be madness if we were flooded with files that can't be opened in the official version.

Hi! I'm not really active here anymore but I still make music. Nowadays I mostly make dubstep with emphasis on good melodies and chord progressions.

In that case I'm not sure at all, jsr would have to answer your question. My guess is that it would still be disallowed.

I think you quoted the wrong part of my post. Aren't you talking about the I linked?

The non-official modules debate was settled days ago. Further discussion is likely to only lead to disputes stemming from differences in opinion, so I'll take the liberty of locking this thread.
