Wonder how long it takes us to forget dmods we have made - last time someone asked about what to do in the one of mine I uploaded, I had to go play it before I could answer - that's pretty bad huh.

When you are working on them you know every inch intimately, yet we forget so soon, its seems weird how that happens - how long does it take you to forget yours...

I actually forgot the location of a lot of secrets I stashed away when I got back to developing after 2 months break... Now I keep a document with the locations when I add them Will be nice to have later on to if I want to make a guide.

I object 
Yeah, strange isn't it? For questions about the Scourger I have to look some things up in the editor myself. For my older DMODs I would probably get stuck in my own mod...

A couple of years is definitely enough to forget some of the crucial points of a DMOD.

Don't look at me, I'm a ghost 
Depends on wether or not you generally keep working on it afterwards, trying to perfect it or make an expansion/patch.
Once you stop working on it and people stop asking for help as often, or other people answer the questions, is when it slowly begins to fade from your mind.

Responsible for making things not look like ass 
I've already forgotten some of the things I've put in. I can't wait to be surprised when I go through and test everything. I'll probably find that like ten things don't work.

I'm always forgetting about content in CC2. That's partly due to working on it in tandem with Arik, I guess.
