We already have documentation available for FutureBB and Bingo is supposed to be pretty self-explanatory. What exactly would go on the Wiki?

The only really important information is already included in product documentations, though.

Well I already know all the "important" stuff. I document a lot of things--ldstech software, Futurama, Plants vs Zombies, an encyclopedia, and formerly Scratch. Can you find what the "point away from edge" block does by looking for it in the motion pallete? NO! Can you find out what color Hermes' tie was before the production of the pilot episode was by watching it? NO! Can you find out why the "Gatling Pea" is called that if you don't already know why without help? NO! I think I've made my point >:)


EDIT:Happy holidays too.

Are you not answering me cuz you're gone for the holidays, or are you refusing to answer me because you felt that was a rude phrasing?

I was not checking the forums in the past few days because I was travelling. Anyway, since this website is basically just a place where we distribute our software, I don't think having a place to document all the really obscure stuff would help. Besides, some of the really obscure stuff is a secret. ;)

Then what if I run it? Also, you're joking when you say it's a secret, right?

Yeah, I'm joking. But seriously, I don't see a need for a Wiki, regardless of who runs it.

But there's no documentation for Insanity, and not a very good one for FutureBB.

Once I finish programming FutureBB 1.4 (which is now substantially complete!), I will work on improving the documentation for FutureBB. Insanity was actually developed prior to the creation of FST, and used to have its own website at insanity.jvvgindustries.com.

Documentations only cover the general stuff---I want to know every single thing possible.

Since we're really just a group of people writing software, there really isn't that much to know, and most of it really isn't interesting. The interesting stuff is the software we write.

To sell the idea, don't reply to this unless you're not Jacob.

At any rate, when was the last time you liked one of my ideas? I'd say more than a year ago.

They both lead busier lives than I do, but I do talk with them frequently. I just happen to spend more time on the forums.

Also, I'm not trying to shoot down every single idea you have, I just want to stick to the basics here and not have unnecessary stuff floating around.

You do not have your own private forum. Also, Im pretty sure you are. In april 2014 I suggested EW protection everybody said no. Then you asked for it and peoe were wondering how you came up with such a good ide.

There actually is a private forum on this site that we use, and we also communicate regularly in other ways to discuss our various software projects and the progress we're making.

Also, I actually supported EW protection for a long time, and I can't find any edits you made in April 2014 suggesting EW protection. I even asked for it before you joined the Wiki.
However, this is bringing up an off-site issue, and as such is outside of the scope of these forums. Please refrain from bringing up these issues and keep discussions related to FST.
