addon.json error: type isn't a supported type!

So. i wanted to upload my gmod addon to workshop to test it but i come across a problem.

in my command prompt i get this error: addon.json error: type isn’t a supported type!

in the addon.json:



{
	"title" : "CSGO howl m4a1",
	"type" : "Addon",
	"tags" : ["Fun"],
	"ignore" :
		[
			"*.psd",
			"*.vcpro",
			"*.svn"
		]
}

It’s really obvious what the problem is. Do your research first…

Are you trying to reupload someone else’s work? Because that’s not allowed without explicit permission from original author.

As the error suggests, “Addon” is not a valid addon type. The “Addon” tag is added automatically. You can find a list of all available types on the wiki.
