      Do you think we should Substandard resources that were/will be rendered by new natives? An example is like your Disarmament library.

        Hmm, have the patches introduced some new possibilities? Do you perhaps know a summary of all new natives introduces within, say, a year? As I don't recall stumbling across such list, there's no hype in me. And I can't diff old & new common.j's as I only have the newest patch, and too lazy to crawl through the file manually for cool stuff.

        No summery, but I checked some cool ones
        - unit armor/attack/colldown/abil tooltip etc manipulation
        - more control of type "effect", control xyz, animations, etc
        - enable/disable abilities, like also move/attack, etc
        - mouse natives

        Hm.. still no UI manipulation (hiding in particular)? Cuz that would enable for all the gut shizzle, Ice Escapers don't need to see unit stats / minimap / command card so the bottom UI could be hidden without losing anything.

        Anyway, I might give JASS-related VSCode extension development a go now that code externalization is officially supported thanks to JASSHelper in 1.30 WE. I see we have one (vJASS extension) already, but I find it very lacking.

        Edit: Then, if I ever get it anywhere usable (unlikely), I would write a beginner-friendly tutorial on setting up the environment, along with teaching the JASS & vJASS language. But this is wishful projection, doubt I'd get that far..

      That avatar was cool (no pun intended - but now that I already made it, there you go)

      Hello mate. Did you give any thoughts on what I had told you recently? Ralle is up for the change, though he is busy with moving the site to XenForo 2.0.
      JASS section needs a major cleanup / filtering added and such.

      First things first though, kill this crap: https://www.hiveworkshop.com/threads/system-automatic-memory-leak-destroyer.142235/.
      My eyes bleed when looking at this. Had I been a new hiveworkshop user, I'd jump off the window after seeing this snippet.
      This does not belong anywhere apart from Graveyard. All of "senior" jassers agreed on this in the past.

        Read more than just the first sentence.
        However, to sum up the "first": whatever you say about it, know this: it has more views/ replies than most vjass snippets/libs just because.. peps said it should be removed :)
        And because it's on the 1st page, it's like a red flag - avoid this subforum, nubs here :)

        One more thing.
        Reviewing old stuff is important. At least when speaking of such essential part as coding subforum. Term 'software development' without 'development' loses its spirit - ain't it?

        Otherwise, this will become another graveyard, just like wc3 and the helper are.

        "it says nubs here" and "other say this, too", does not really convince me to now move an older approved resource to graveyard.

        "I believe JASS section can have an other focus than just moving this very resource because you doubt it's concept's usefulness."

        Guess I have to copy:
        "We need to:
        - remove resources not meeting approval criteria
        - fix existing snippets for 1.28+ (moderator needed)
        - categorize resources: containers, utils, events (...)
        and such."

      Dude, you're mod and I know none here that would oppose this change.
      None who actually cases about Jass resources.
      I can speak with Ralle if you want, but I guess Jass-resources subforum is your playground.

      Hello mate, writing with proposition: how about categorizing Jass resources?
      New user wants to find let's say Event-related resources.
      Seeing 100+ Jass resources is hardly helpful without clear division / organization.

      Could be similar to wurstStdlib categorization : )

        Hiho Bannar!^^

        Would be great, I guess. Data structure stuff etc all bundled.. . I believe it's goal for very long time already to change JASS section structure a bit, making them a bit more like a real resource, displaying it also at user profile, etc, and then we could also have categories. But it seems it's not wanted strong enough/ or idk when such things will happen. ;s

      Although, you are Code Moderator and thus you have ability to edit someone's post. Wonder why you haven't just updated my OP :D

      Dang, I'm sorry that the Mini Contest didn't work out; I really think it was a good idea.
      Was I the only entrant, then? Makes sense that it was scuppered with only one...
      1. IcemanBo
        IcemanBo
        You and MyPad had at least WIPs, yeh others I think not. Recently I thought of where we people could showcase their hero next to the contest, and maybe a perma possibiliby would be cool. A place where we generally can develop and showcase custom made heroes with abilities/icons/models (customization can vary). Probably a own section would not be justified, but a own thread or so maybe would be cool. What you think?

        (well, even though I didn't get a chance to post on the thread, my original submission fulfills the requirements, lol)

        So you're talking about a sub-forum specifically for Hero design? Would it have to be heroes created for Contests or just, anything?

        Seems a bit specific but the again, @Kam just recently pioneered an "advanced Techtree" subforum, so maybe...
