Re: FSDoc Updates/Suggestions
Pngs are allowed, what exactly is your problem with pngs? Did you check if you are able to upload a jpg?

Re: FSDoc Updates/Suggestions
If it works now, I think the issue was fixed by someone after I reported his post when I first saw it; that someone just forgot to say so. :p

"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences. The truly wishful dreams, the many-minded dreams are now irresistible - they become facts." - 'The Outward Urge' by John Wyndham

"The very essence of tolerance rests on the fact that we have to be intolerant of intolerance. Stretching right back to Kant, through the Frankfurt School and up to today, liberalism means that we can do anything we like as long as we don't hurt others. This means that if we are tolerant of others' intolerance - especially when that intolerance is a call for genocide - then all we are doing is allowing that intolerance to flourish, and allowing the violence that will spring from that intolerance to continue unabated." - Bren Carlill

Re: FSDoc Updates/Suggestions
I have not yet tried, but thank you for the PM's Sandwich. I look to confirm sometime saturday when I am not mobile. Thank you in either case for keeping track.

If some adminy type would be so kind as to remove the pages on my campaigns Police Action and Back From the Grave; development has ceased, most the documentation for the storylines was accidentally lost, and evolving ideas have rendered them Deader Than Dead more or less.

Re: FSDoc Updates/Suggestions
I would like to tell you also to remove 158th ships from "released"category.
They are no longed available and it's confirmed that nobody will reupload them.

FYI, I added a draft Mac Installation Guide to the wiki. I had the whole process fresh in my mind anyway.

Re: FSDoc Updates/Suggestions
Veteran Comments Jihad Mark 2 is underway. Redundant or bloggy comments have been purged from all FS1 ships (although I erred on the side of keeping them if there was some doubt).

FS2 ships will be purged during my lunch period or before.

Re: FSDoc Updates/Suggestions
Since I ended up coming home due to hacking cough, the FS2 ships have all been purged, excepting the Sathanas, whose article is just such a mess of speculation I don't know if I should even touch it.

Re: FSDoc Updates/Suggestions
Well done, NGTM-1R. I really like the Veteran Comments section, but the substantial stuff is getting a bit choked out.

Re: FSDoc Updates/Suggestions
I have the impression that this kind of changes (I totally agree with) will be made at regular intervals. People will start adding stuff back to the Veteran Comments so that new purges will be required. I think we need to freeze the VCs or something like that. I'd also like the VCs to tell more about FREDding - gameplay has been covered enough.

Let's not freeze them. I really like VCs, they make reading the Wiki a lot of fun.

I like them as well, but I wouldn't like NGTM-1R to become the Sisiphus of the FreeSpace Wiki...

Re: FSDoc Updates/Suggestions
It's not a terribly demanding task, and actually, stuff gets added onto the VCs very slowly. I can't see it being necessary more often then once every six months. A couple of hours every six months is easily spared.

You can keep track of them in the Recent Changes window. They can be edited/reverted very as soon as they are added.

Re: FSDoc Updates/Suggestions
True, but that might get someone disappointed. I'd say to expand the VC policies...

Re: FSDoc Updates/Suggestions
Expand the policies?  As in, allow anybody to write any old thing?

Sorry, no can do.  I agree with NGTM-1R.

No.

As in, putting an emphasis on the kinds of VCs that the Wiki doesn't like. Please note that I don't disagree with NGTM-1R... I don't want him to become the Sisiphus of the FreeSpace Wiki (which is totally different).

Purged the weapons veteran commentary, which was a much easier task than the ships.
