Opinion/Feedback desired
So, since this is supposed to be the place for any non-Volition code based tools, I've been wondering as to some organization.

Namely, that we don't see a lot of feedback or separation for other things to track, such as having a place for wxLauncher or even wxFred.

So, my suggestion that I'm requesting feedback for is a bit of an organizational structure for this area.

The standard "FreeSpace Tools Projects" (now pluralized) would be a general discussion avenue or potential support place (good for stickies and the like, tutorials on how to use, etc) and then we would have 3/4 child boards dedicated to:
1: PCS2 (Development, Bug Reports (though, those should happen on its bug tracker if there is one))
2: wxFred (while still not in a publicly usable state yet, it'll happen eventually, but can be used for now to let people know it exists and to outline what it is for)
3: wxLauncher which does have a release, can have a fixed location for where to go for the latest, development discussions and what have you, feature requests or bug reports and the like
4: Installer especially once it gets completed, have a fixed location for Release post data.

Granted, many of the things for the sub-boards (release notices and up-to-date information/builds/links) can happen in stickies pretty easily. But thread-able conversation tracking and topic browsing for each would be a nice plus, and having a slightly more organized level to sort through it might be appreciated.

Re: Opinion/Feedback desired
I agree on the condition that the forum name remain "FreeSpace Tools Project".  Because "tools" is already pluralized. :p

Re: Opinion/Feedback desired
"Project" implies that PCS2/wxFRED/wxLauncher/FSO Installer are all under one unified project, which isn't really the case; they're all independent from one another.

If you wanted to keep them a "project" while still being accurate, you'd have to call the board "The FreeSpace Tools Projects Project". :p

Re: Opinion/Feedback desired
There is a unified community project to coordinate efforts on all tools, I thought that was why we made this forum :P

Re: Opinion/Feedback desired
Well, it's "unified" in the sense that we've lumped them all into one board. The individual projects have little to do with one another, other than being SCP-related coding projects that aren't based on :v:'s code, and they don't coordinate with each other, nor can I think of a reason for them to do so, except for eventually the launcher and the installer once it's ready. Still, if you'd like to refer to them collectively as a "project", fine by me.

This.

Also, neither PCS2 nor wxLauncher are SCP-related.

:necro:


Since The Various Powers That Be seem to have approved of the proposal in the OP, and wxL is at the point where it could use a board, could this perhaps be put into action? :)
