Required previews for GUI pluginsNo Thanks

Suggestion for plugins template.

I would be nice to have this as a requirement for people that make GUI plugins to have a screenshot or a video of what I looks like. Or make it a default thing for all the plugins unless it’s not necessary.

To give us a bigger picture of what it does?

Can we please require plugins to show some screenshots or link to screenshots that require them? Especially for people that create a ui plugin. It would nice to see what something would look like or what it could look like.

can we also have dark theme support, I hate having to burn my eyes on a daily basis.

1. We have dark theme on uMod, open your settings.
2. Screenshots shouldn't be required since plugins may be completely different every time, since, for instance, plugins can be completely configurable. So you'll see one thing on the screenshot, but you may be unable to do it yourself, and you'll blame the author. Or screenshots will be not good enough and you'll blame the author his plugin isn't good enough.

I'm sorry but that's gotta be really worse case scenario and stupid.  As far as I know this a friendly community. You make it seem it's reall a hard job to make a screenshot with a new update to represent their plugin, gives the person a chance to see what it could look like or will look like. Maybe some extra examples wouldn't hurt, I used to to this for arma 3 people were greatful, now I gotta run an extra server just to see if the plugin is worth it or if it fits nicely. 

"So you'll see one thing on the screenshot, but you may be unable to do it yourself, and you'll blame the author. Or screenshots will be not good enough and you'll blame the author his plugin isn't good enough."

you can change the word screenshot to description same results. So I don't get why not require it.

Also the site really sucks on mobile when trying to quick reply. Edit: found the dark theme thanks!

Some plugins really need images for demonstration, I agree, but plugins like my Info Menu can't have a screenshot - it'll be completely different on your server 100% since you'll set it up a different way, or I won't show all the functionality and you won't like the plugin or will blame me.

It would still be nice to see what it could be ( just add like a notice for example "your design might vary") or something.
