I just performed some tidying of the database—tag cleanup mostly. On a related note, I also added a slew of new tags to the tag guide.

Pushed a small update—from Eric's wish list—to allow one-step updating of package files; you no longer need to remove the old version before posting the new one.

I didn't know that there is a tag guide, where is it? Thanks.

On the package addition and editing pages, right next to the Tags legend. A round blue question mark button looking thing—e.g. (?)—whose title, when you hover over it, is "View recommended tags".

There's a similar one on the browse page, for the filter terms.

Pushed a small update:
  • Added a few more tags to the tag guide.
  • Made the tag guide popup-window interactive. Clicking on the tags within the tag guide will automatically load them into the parent window's Tags field for you.
  • Expanded the GCA file type names out in the various list displays; e.g. instead of seeing "DATA" you'll now see "data file".
I tested the tag guide's new interactivity in: Internet Explorer 8, Firefox 3.6, Safari 5, Chrome 9, and Opera 11. Please let me know if you have any issues with it.

Pushed a small update to add "pyramid" to the tag guide as a source tag.

And now a question about the tag guide itself. At the moment, I've got it segregated into rough categories—source, genre, setting, sheet, and miscellaneous. Would it be better to make it a simple alphabetical list?

I wasn't expecting the segregated list, but I liked it when I got over the surprise. The Repo is more content-specialized than, for example, Flikr, so leveraging that to make the tag list easier to navigate seems useful.

I suppose the compromise is to provide BOTH options, but that's more coding for you ;)

Pushed a small update that changes some of the site styling and re-paths the style tree. So, if things look wonky, that would be why. Clearing your browser's cache should fix any issues.

Just a note: In the e23 forum, in the "Predictions for 2011" thread (whatever it's called...), someone posted a link to the (apparently completely authorized) file for the upcoming Monster Hunters pdf.

As I'm not sure how valid the info is (or how authorized... I'll let someone with the authority to verify come in and make a statement), I'm not going to link directly, so if the link has to be edited out by the mods, there's fewer places they have to track down. :-)

I'm not sure exactly what you're asking. I can assure everyone that no files are ever posted on MyGURPS without my authority, because I'm the only one with the FTP password. :)

So yes, I was the one who posted the (PARTIAL) Monster Hunters GDF on MyGURPS, and announced it in the User-made items for GCA thread. It's also announced in my signature, below, and I announced it on Twitter.

Is there something I'm not aware of that calls into question who uploaded the file? Or am I just completely misunderstanding your question? (Probably the latter...)
