Personally I don't think it is a big deal. Most browsers remember your passwords if cookies aren't used to remember log-ins. I vote that resources be used in other needed areas than in a centralized login. Eddie 16:15, 10 November 2007 (UTC)
The Other Pages sidebar seems like it should have a link to the main POV-ray website, or if not there, there should be a link part of the template somewhere that is always available regardless of where you are in the wiki.

- I agree, the "Other Pages" section should have a link to the official POV-Ray Web site. The "Content" section needs a link to Documentation. Eddie 01:13, 30 December 2007 (UTC)
File uploads / supported file types
I had no trouble uploading some images, but when I tried to upload a scene file as .pov, I got the error message: "The file is corrupt or has an incorrect extension. Please check the file and upload again."
I tried uploading it as a .txt and giving it a .pov destination filename, but no luck. Is there an issue with uploading source at this time? --Reactor 02:04, 31 December 2007 (UTC)
- By default, a mediawiki will only allow the uploading of image and video files. The administrators will need to configure the wiki to allow the uploading of other file types. Eddie 14:54, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
Will there be pages that contain pov-objects or macros?
Hi! Will this wiki hold pages that contain the pov for objects or macros? For example I tried to create a page Chair_(Model). (Didn't work, btw.)
Or will that be strictly in the section lib.povray.org?
I hope this wiki will become as nice just like povray.org in general is. (And not like so many other wikis develop into. =) Greetings --D. Hansen 09:36, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
- A wiki is a communal effort. This wiki will only ever be as good as the POV-Ray community makes it.
Personally I don't see the need for a page about each object in the library, but you're welcome to create them if you wish. (Avoid special characters and punctuation, for the most part, in page titles.)
I think well documented macros will be very much welcomed in this wiki. I say go for it! :) Eddie 14:57, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
