A while back Charybdis asked about updating the main site files to make them easier to use for the general population. To be direct, he was correct. The file names where all over the place. For example, here are the first few files from the old Great Britian Folder:
As you can see, the names are all over the map, and not at all grouped in any logical manner.
Code: Select all

As a staff member, I had known about this for some time, and had been trying to find a solution, but it was a big job, and I'm only one guy.
Several of the members of the site (who are named bellow) jumped in with offers of help, and now, after two and a half months, the fruits of our (mostly their) labor are live on the main site. For example the following is a list of the first two dozen files from the new Great Britian folder:
You may also note that older, and depreciated/replaced drawings have been moved out of the archive. Do not dispair, for they are not gone, just moved to the Museum. The Museum will house our legacy, so we can always look back on where we came from.

It's nice, it's neat, and it's organized better than the old folders were. The actual organization system can be found posted in this thread here. If there are any questions about this feel free to ask.
Now, there are some folders that were not adjusted by this project: Denmark (which just didn't get done in time, it will be updated to modern standards going forward), The USA and CSA folders (these had already been kept up to date for some time), Russia & Finland (These have been left in the fine hands of Golly), & the Royal Navy in WW2 folder (which is kept as a living museum).
My team in this project has consisted of acelanceloet, heuhen, eswube, Charybdis, & DG_Alpha. The work and dedication they have shown is exemplary.
