In last month's Ask Cryptic, dstahl said this:

we also will be looking into the ability to ?copy and freeze? specific Foundry missions... We will maintain the credits/tips for the author, while giving us a safe copy that isn?t subject to the author revising it further.
So, it's pretty clear that, in order for our missions to give rewards (at least in the short term), we'll have to turn it over to the devs, and thus lose the ability to edit and fix it when things break.

Would you take this gamble with your most popular mission? Why or why not?

If something breaks in the Foundry, and my mission no longer works right, I want to be able to edit it.

If new features/assets/etc are added to the Foundry, I want to be able to edit my missions.

So no, I most certainly would not.

How about this: if the mission gets "copied and frozen", and we edit it, the new version is sent off to Cryptic. They examine the changes in the new version, and if it's acceptable it replaces the current version.

I remember reading somewhere that we'd still have a version of the mission that we could edit, but changes would not be reflected in the official mission. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Don't remember hearing anything about that, but I don't like it either. If I make a mission, I want to retain the ability to make edits and revisions to it, even if it becomes "official".

If I believe my mission has matured enough so that I don't need to change it anymore I'd consider it.

Were you here during season 4, Zorbane?
