Hey Mr Lou! If you want to have it that way, then I have a very easy solution for you:
Built up your own news page, and the Wiki-Robot will post all your news here in exactly your style.
 
I'm looking forward for your news portal :-)
 

Hey man, this was uncalled-for... no need to be so hostile...

Hostile? Don't you see the :-) Pick you own nose ;-)
 
My opinion is... if you want it exactly your way, just do it by yourself. What's wrong with that?

Well, for starters, you were being, intentionally or not, ironic. A smiley at the end doesn't cut it...

And, on a philosophical level, the theory of "if you want it exactly your way do it yourself" doesn't hold much water. Not practical. Doesn't make any sense. So I don't like how the buttons on my HTC HD2 work, should I build one on my own? :D

You guys are bothering me. I'm building my own forum with bots to talk to.


I'm sorry, I forgot :

Maybe you're right, maybe one can get it in the wrong throat. The intension was motivation to do something or to start something. Since Mr. Lou has precise ideas how it shall look like, why not relize it that way. Future will show how it runs and if people like it. But first it must be realized.
 

And, on a philosophical level, the theory of "if you want it exactly your way do it yourself" doesn't hold much water. Not practical. Doesn't make any sense.

You have not one argument aginst my theory, and I've proofen it at least for me in my whole live. In Biology, informatics, chemistry and ever with my OS.
My theory may not work for you or everybody, but I'm sure it works for everybody with real targets.
And Gryzor, you've already proofen my theory by building up the CPCWiki! ;-)
 
So I don't like how the buttons on my HTC HD2 work, should I build one on my own? :D

If your dislike of the buttons is strong enought... Yes!

How different would this thread have looked, if my first post (my first reply, the second post), looked like this instead:

---
It would be really nice if all news-authors would put the name of the target-platform in the title of their news. That way a collection of cpc-news would be more useful, since you'd have a better overview of what's relevant to you and what's not.
This thread would thus be called "Arkos   Tracker v1.0 for Windows", and I'd know that I didn't care one bit about this since I run Linux.
---

I can't believe the replies I'm getting on various forums sometimes, but I suspect maybe I should be better at expressing myself. At least it's my experience, that people who don't know me usually interpret things I say in a rather negative way rather than in the productive way it was meant. (And it's getting rather tiring being stamped as a complainer when it's definitely not what I'm doing. Even more so when all subsequent attempts of explaining also fails). The written word is only 25% of what we say....

@TMF: actually, I did give an argument (the HTC one), and you quoted it, so it's so strange to claim that I didn't...

What you say does not make any sense because as a theory (or practice) it ignores the principle of competitive advantage and waste of resources.

I built the wiki not because there was something not good enough out there, but because there was nothing out there (actually at the time I think there were no retro wikis at all). But at this point, with our wiki having such a momentum and size, it makes absolutely no sense building something anew just to make it better: it makes much more sense to try and improve the current setup. Same thing with what Mr_Lou said.

@Mr_Lou: I think it's clear that you had no 'bad' intentions. What you wrote above is a small step but making a big difference, but I'll insist that the same result could be achieved with a simple "What platform is this for?". This way you provoke the thinking of the issue without actually making a suggestion to the author... it's all in the subtlety :)

I find it rather stunning that you apparently still don't get, that the very reason I wanted to poke this idea into news-writers heads, was to avoid doing precisely what you say there. I wanted to have an overview of which news was relevant to me. This could be achieve by creating some advanced multi-user news-system and have everyone use that instead of their own personal blog - OR everyone could simply put in the title what platform the news item was about. I seriously doubt anyone would want to use an new advanced multi-user news-system rather than their own personal blog, so the put-platform-in-title idea seemed like a good idea to me.
But NEVER FUCKING MIND.  :) It's quite clear that poking ideas like this into the community is a mission impossible, and it's not that important to me either. It was just a nice-to-have thing, but I understand we'll never have it.

In contrast, the principle of competitive advantage is bullshit, and it's prooven wrong. Teamwork is much more efficient. I expect a smart guy like you to know that.
 
However, worlds are colliding here. I see no need to discuss this more, since arguments become redundant.
