You gave the link to old rules.
Ah, no. The link you provided is mostly a collection of how to name the ships and ship classes by their definitions, they suplement the old rules but it didn't overwrite them. In general, only stuff posted by administrors would do so, and then there would be mention of this.
actually, there is working practise, the team that cleaned up the archive in the past has made an museum folder as well
If thats the case, then im sure you can provide me a link to such folder?
The thing is, that back when there were more staff, the were lot of intention to include the museum idea into the practice of uploading, but there were never a clear set of agenda nor rules of how the replacing files and redoing others work would actually work, who would decide what gets replaced and in with what grounds. The new rules revision project from this winter did finaly bring clarity to these issues, so therefore there is now more ground to actually procede in this issue and trying to make it actually work.
the team that cleaned up the archive in the past
and general atmosphere focusing around these things back then also managed to indulge themselves into various malpractices, missconductions and other reprehensible activity, that mostly necessitated and orginated the great purge, we cannot give much worth for that period in SB managment.
Idea in this new era of openness and communal decission making, we have lot better grounds to actually get the archiving methods work and clear to everyone, so if people have suggestions what they think needs to be done and suggestions of how to do things, perhaps a seperate thread somewhere would be more in place
Coming next: L/M Moskva, some research ships, pr.26bis, Pr.1144 remakes and Project 1143 complete redux.
