#365 closed Feature Request (Rejected)

Forum for standard UDF candidates

Reported by: Wooltown Owned by: Gary
Milestone: Component: Standard UDFs
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:


It would be nice if there could be a section in the forum, where the users in the community could submit UDFs for review by other users, and they could vote if they think the UDF should be a part of the Standard UDF Library, the users could assist in writing examples and helpfiles.

I believe that would be called Example scripts. The user can add a poll to their thread. If it is popular enough and useful then they can submit it to me by pm or in the "Standard UDF Library, to be included in the AutoIt3 installset" thread.

The problem with "example scripts", is that there are so many "non UDFs", so the UDF candidates is hard to detect, a forum called "UDF candidates" would be better. Easier for both the developer team as well as all other users to detect and vote for standard UDF inclusion.

Another way is to set up some "header rule", all UDFs should begin with "UDF candidate ", example: "UDF candidate Excel".

The easier it is for every moron on the planet to contribute, the more crap we have to reject or the more crap we pointlessly distribute. The current system is fine. Remember, the mentality "every UDF is good" is a bad one to have. Only really hard things that take a lot of work and are written by talented people should be considered. Those things have a habit of attracting their own attention.

Closing as rejected.
