Script Library: Script tagging improvements

 [1/4] from: dhsunanda:gm:ail at: 26-Jun-2008 8:29 It's been quiet in the Library recently, but we have just released the change that was at the top of most people's request list: EASIER SCRIPT CONTRIBUTION ========================== Scripts contributed to the Library no longer need a horribly complicated header. Previously, we've required a quite detailed set of entries on a header. Anyone (including me) who has tried to upload a new script will remember the several rejections each requiring yet another setting. No more! The Library will accept scripts with minimal headers. Here's an example, just three entries needed: title: ... date: ... file: ... <> All other previous header options are now optional. And that leads to .... FREE FORMAT TAGGING =================== Previously, you could search the Library for scripts which had certain Header values (eg [type: game] or [level: beginner] But if scripts no longer have mandatory header entries, how do they acquire such values? The answer is that any script can now have tags added to it using the new tag editor. No need to upload a new version of a script simply to retag it. The tag index is here: <> (the initial values were built from the Library headers). If you want to add or edit tags for any script, please feel free: simply: -- log on to the Library -- view the script -- notice it now has an [Edit Tags] link For help in editing tags <> **** To summarise: it's easier to contribute scripts. And it's easier for anyone to chip in and help categorise them. Have fun if you want to play with this! Sunanda

Thanks Sunanda, Lowering the bar may help get more scripts added, and the tagging could do a better job of categorizing. looks like a win-win to me. Sunanda wrote:
