If the answer to your question is not below then please email support.


What is a Setup (was previously called Kit)?

Setups are way of telling the world about your particular printer or printers. It allows you to describe your hardware, add a photo, and list the components that go to make it up.


What is a Theme?

Themes are a way of grouping a collection of developments together that have something in common. A way of connecting developments together which is looser than using links, and more focussed than using categories or tags.


How much does it cost to use Development Tracker?

The application has been written as a contribution to the community and at this time is offered as a free service. This will hopefully continue as long as it remains viable. The service runs on Google App Engine which has an allowance of resources for small scale applications. Should these quotas be reached then the functionality or availability of the application may be affected. However, the main aim of the application at the time of writing is to provide a useful service to the community, and not to generate money.

Someone else registered my development and I want to update it. What can I do?

Contact support who will act as liason between yourself and the submitter in order to ensure the information is updated and organise sharing of editing rights. Future iterations of the application may allow direct private messaging of other users who grant permission.


What happens to the Image URL I give when adding a development? Are you Hot-Linking?

Development tracker makes a thumbnail copy of the image and uses this throughout the lifetime of the entry. No hot-linking occurs. Please be sure to have the correct rights to the image used.


I'm not happy that my project or development is featured, or an image of mine has been used as a thumbnail and the right to do this was not given. What can I do?

Contact support and we will check your claim and if necessary delete the offending entry or image.


How can I delete my account?
