It doesn't answer my question ;p Though I'm amusing that means you don't yet have an idea of how long this "beta" will be?

That's because it fully depends on how much it is used. If the number of uploads / downloads / comments explodes in the next week, next week may be the end of the beta.

5 uploads can hardly be called a trustworthy beta result.

Re: [NEW] KaM Map Repository: KaMRepos

I was looking to see if there was an "exact" time, more or less. Why is that so hard to understand?
Please, do not requote before understanding me fully (I find it very offensive, to be honest).

Re: [NEW] KaM Map Repository: KaMRepos

Maybe show somewhere which characters are not allowed? E.g. I was trying to upload some maps with the name 'The New Lands (6/16)', which had characters in it that were not allowed. But how do I know which ones? 'The New Lands (1-6)' was fine. Also, if you get an error like that you have to re-write everything and also set all settings again (building map/fighting/special). Now my map is 'building', while I wanted it to be 'special'. No way to change it whatsoever, and I can't delete my own maps.

I'll add the forbidden characters to the FAQ.

You should be able to edit your map, so you can change the category to special.

The re-writing stuff is very annoying. I've been trying to fix that for ages and no matter what I try, it doesn't work OR it breaks the entire page (and thus not working too). Maybe I'll give it another shot when I feel like it.

Re: [NEW] KaM Map Repository: KaMRepos

Offtopic question: Tdl at your description of tnl it says, first 6 missons of Tnl. Why the title is then Tnl (6-16) and not Tnl (1-6)??? :P :mrgreen:

Re: [NEW] KaM Map Repository: KaMRepos

Hey btw: I like Ben´s idea really, it is usefull to know how many people rated the current map. However what about a "Total download" counter at each map also? So you can really see how popular a map is not only via rating but also via downloads (When a map is great, I will tell everyone on ts and they will download it also e.g, but they haven´t to rate really :P)

Ah, dicso also suggested this during the closed beta. I'll give you the same answer as him:

Displaying how many times a map has been download has no real added value. The repository doesn't tell you anything about how popular a map is. It only shows download statistics, including cancelled downloads. It doesn't show how often the map is played and therefor the number of downloads cannot resemble the popularity of a map. You'd be better of checking the map statistics on kamremake.com to check how popular a map is.

Re: [NEW] KaM Map Repository: KaMRepos

Hi!

Is that possible to add this KaMRepos to next to the Blogs. I mean on that line. It isnt too visible. Anyway looks out good. I still could offer add all maps from the laterst release automaticly.
And the starvote should be possible only if the the user registered. I havent checked how does it work exatly now.
good job!
