Except that's sort of the point of a dedicated forum for discussing public mods. If multiple mods are in conflict, there should be a community-agreed procedure to merge them, or to pick one over the other.
(Please note, this is only for mods that are in direct conflict, such as one Nova with glowpoints but bad path data, and another with good path data but no glowpoints. If, for example, one person makes a 50-turret Nova and another makes a 100-turret Nova, I agree that those should be separate.)
The public development forum does not need to be (and shouldn't be) an authoritarian gateway for mods, but it should foster a modicum of responsibility and discipline. Otherwise you end up with a free-for-all.
