Since ages garrysmod.org is becoming full of crap files. Examples are pack of tools, that most of time, are outdated and will make you get errors. So I sugest to start filtering files that goes to garrysmod.org. I know garrysmod.org gets toons of files per day, but that will be the solution for the chaos.
Another thing is that every download could need to have more info on it, or at least, a link to a thread on this forum or to anywhere else with info.
A simple way to start cleaning up is searching. If anyone seaches for “Weight Stool” there will be lots of Weight Stools. The real owner of the file will be the only one to make updates/fixes, and if fixes are made by someone else, they need to be sent to the real owner, so he will decide to update it or not. Because there’s lot of versions around there, and you never know wich one is the most recent and wich one works too. And garrysmod.org could keep some old versions of some files (at least the small ones). As the “CLEANUP” goes on, more space will be avaiable, and i bet my ass that there will be more than the suficient to have some old versions of some stools (just for compability).
Another thing… About the “Toybox”… I was made for "adv dupes, entities, contraption and etc. right? That could help cleaning garrysmod.org too. It will be more organized, with only the real addons.
[release]ZOMG! QUICK IDEAS!
If an addon uses SVN, the link could be protected (the svn itself maybe) and could only be used if you own gmod. Like, a random password for each download, but i think that would take up too much processing and would take too much long. It’s just an quick idea i had making this post anyway… LOL
Quick Idea 2
Maybe an upgrade to the addon info page? Like being able to “Center” texts, and have a logo on the description (with size limitation, obviously).
Sadly, that’s what i can contribute with, ideas and iniciatives, that will my contribution with Gmod this year, maybe i came up with more ideas, maybe not. Even being only ideas, at least they are something, right?
Just to put something CLEAR!l, they aren’t requests, they’re suggestions, I don’t want idiots saying (YOU SUCK REQUESTING FROM GARRY) or any crap of feedback like this.
Critics are welcomed and apreciated, but only the constructive ones!
So if any one on facepunch like my ideas, please post about what you think
It’s my sugestion for 2011. Let’s make diferent this year guys. Garry is brilliant for creating gmod, without it this forum probally wouldn’t be the same, think about that. So what about making Garry’s work worth it?
Everyone can help. If you see someone else doing wrong, don’t pwn him for that, teach him how to do it. Don’t desorganize, don’t post crap when you can’t… Really, I love gmod as you can see, and i know that A LOT of other poeple love it too, so “Show that your love is real”
That could look like “fag”. But think this way: Think that gmod, the forums and bla bla bla are your life, if you make jokes all the times, not that jokes are bad, instead you need to take your life happy, so play, have fun, joke a lot, but there are times that you need to calm down, and “whait a little” and be dedicated. Or you could be warned, banned and permabanned. Think!
By the way, i know that maybe nothing of what i sugested is possible, but screw that, i’ll post it anyway. Just take my ideas as inspiration or something
