    Re: Sven Co-op Map Database (a wiki for SC maps)

    At the moment, you can find map pages needing improvement by going to the To-do list (Contribute>To-do list).

    This does require a lot of maintenance, and a tagging solution, as you suggested, might be easier.

    I'm thinking of implementing something like this:
    You can tag map pages with "needs-info", "needs-pics", or "needs-dl" (dl=download) if they are lacking in these areas.

    Then I'll set the To-do list to display these maps automatically.

    sound good?

    EDIT: This has now been implemented. thanks for the help JP.

    Sounds great.

    And can we please get rid of the action tag?

    Edit: I see that the comments thing is back on all of the pages, but it says that I don't have access to post anything. Still working on it?

    I was about to post the same thing....
    I always thought maps are either Walkthrough type, Horde type or Fun (novelty) type.
    you could maybe add a "Total Conversion" search tag too ?

    I see that you're a member of wikidot, but you must join this specific wiki too (to comment). See: http://scmapdb.wikidot.com/system:join - I'll try to make this more obvious.

    We should probably stick to posting finished maps for now. The wiki really doesn't have all of the well-known maps in it yet. And, uh, if you really wan't to put your WIP maps into it, you should do it yourself. No one really has any information on them except for the person who is making them.

    Re: Sven Co-op Map Database (a wiki for SC maps)

    The focus now is really on maps that people can actually play, but completeness is good too. As a result you will notice a few things

    * The Add-mapper template now has headings available for "Sven Co-op Maps in Development" and "Sven Co-op Maps Abandoned". These are commented out by default so they won't be ever be shown unless they are needed.

    * The Contribute>map wizard now leads to options for adding WIP maps, and abandoned maps if you really want to. Note: abandoned maps are only allowed for completeness/historical reference and will never be listed on the main page or with other maps. But now if mappers really want to add their abandoned projects, they can.

    I still think that people should be forced to register before creating/editing pages. At least we would be able to track the people who keep doing things wrong. It's rather ridiculous to have someone create a page for a map with absolutely no information.

    Part of the philosophy behind wiki webs is that registration is a pointless annoyance to casual editors who just want to make a one off change. But I do think there should be a mandatory 'Submitted by' field which you have to fill in before making an edit. This would be displayed along with your IP address (instead of 'Anonymous') so you could tell if someone was trying to impersonate a registered user.

    update: I added a "show overview" button to every map page, underneath the screenshot gallery. It shows an overhead view of each .bsp

    I think that sums up the nature of ratings on the internet-- on svencoopcentral or even youtube the number of ratings is usually only around 2% of the total views/downloads. But still, it can only get better as more ratings are done.

    sv_cheats 1 (maxplayers 2)
    developer 1
    dev_overview 2

    then do a changelevel

    I can't remember the command to remove the HUD in HL1, so just suicide, wait for the on-screen texts to fade away, then take your screenshot.

    to get rid of the ugly green: Photoshop>Enhance>Adjust Color>Replace Color
