Talking of modularity, Growl integration needs to be booted out into a loadable module :-) Winston 20:29, 2 February 2006 (UTC)

Hey, when I wrote it it was completely separate from the rest of the code. Then Giles got his grubby mits on it… --Ahruman 06:35, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

Point taken on OXP list

My main aim in reorganising the OXP page was to give newer players (like me!) the opportunity to have a look-see at what the OXP does before downloading. The other idea was to give a clear picture of which OXPs should not be downloaded together, in particular HUDs and sounds.

So I first did a second list under category. But then I started making links to each Wiki page for all the ships in each OXP, and then the idea extended to Stations and other information, to the table that's there now.

I think this has made the "category" list redundant, but LittleBear is running with that idea now, and I don't have the heart just to scrub it. I'll discuss it in forum and if we have agreement, I'll now for scrapping the "by Category" list and just having the main list.

It did occur to me that we could do this fully by having a separate Wiki page for each OXP, the starting point could be "download from link HERE!" and then provide links to all of the information. But this would make it a bit annoying to viewers to have one click and then another; the beauty of this page (which I wanted to retain) is one place where you can just click to download anything that takes your fancy with one click.

Oxp templates

Thanks for the templates - I'm used to clean up and categorise new articles but with the templates it is more handy for other authors. Greetings: Makarius 08:53, 30 September 2008 (BST)
