Finished scripts section - split it or not?
« on: 27 February, 2006, 19:44:24 »
Well, as you might have seen, I have added subforums (mostly redirecting ones) for AIO bots. But I have a dilemma: should we categorize scripts like on the resources site? I would like to let YOU decide, as this is a (very nice) community.

my vote is no  ... 

reason being..... 

if trying to find a script or just looking,  it is far easier to look down one list than have to search through many different sections.

users find it difficult enough to find scripts for them selves and find it even more difficult to find the search button  ..



  so  i think its best left as it is ...

If it's possible, we should both have categorized view and straight view; but if not, categorized view is better IMO.

I'd like them categorised, so if I look for a script thats a game for instance i dont have to scroll throug thoose that are not games...
Usually when looking for script its a specific type

I vote yes, as others have said, its much easier to find a specific type of script and the wonderful search option would still be able to search all catagories.  :)

both no and yes are good options and many ppl gave good points for them.
but as this forum is for script developing and request, and the script database is to store scripts i could have said enough.
all finished scripts should be uploaded to the database (this can be done by non scripters), searching for a script is easier there.
when you can't find you turn back to this forum and do a quick search (in what many call this mess) if something is being developt, else request the script.
aio scripts should have there own subsections and maby in there even subsections (bug reports, feature requests etc..) if they don't have there own forum.

Been thinking about it and I agree with plop that scripts should be sorted out in type on the Resource Site and not here.

Here should be all scripts in Finished so they can be seen together for people to browse during the development phase. Once developent is finsihed the scripts can be posted to the relevant section on the PtokaX Script Resource Site.

I think if I allow attachments here, the resources' site can entirely be dumped or used as a backup - if people decide to categorize. ;)

In fact, nobody is using the script database again, I for example cannot see Lucifer 666 there - and if something happened to the forum, the users who don't use the script DB would be whining the most.

True, I didn't upload it to the db yet.
But, that's because I don't have much time lately. But, will try to keep it sync'd.

Cheers

I have never stopped using the Resource Site but most of my efforts recently have been on the Grimoire v3 so have done little else.

The two other things I have done recently have both been posted there (and I forgot to mention them here)

Anyone having the script is allowed to upload, not just the author. :-)
