New way of managing applications

The current method of creating a new page for a new version and then putting the old page in the legacy section doesn't work properly for a number of reasons:

  1. Only ProtoKun7 and I can mark something as legacy. Everyone should be able to.
  2. When you create a new version, you need to re-upload screenshots.
  3. When you create a new version, there is no link in any way to the old version. The only similarity is the name of the page.

The solution for this is to have each application on it's own page, and then to put all versions on that page (similar to how filetrip.net does it). It should solve all of the problems I listed above.

For now, keep doing things how you are with a new page for each version… when I have time I'll try to make it work like I described here, and then I'll manually move things to the right pages.

But: The reason I posted here… I want feedback. Are there any things I've forgotten or any other suggestions you want to make before I set this up ? It's easier to get everything planned out at the start, than to have to change it later - so give me your ideas :)

how about putting for downloads a recommended version and latest. By that i mean that if a newer version has bugs there could be a recommended version with no bugs

Wow, good idea. Makes things a whole lot more complicated though :S I'll have to try to come up with a way to do that :)

Well, I'll clarify… there are plenty of ways I can do it… but I don't want to do it unless I can think of a good way to display it. I want things to be as easy as possible to add for new people at the site so there's no learning curve to learn how to add skins and downloadable apps … so if I can't find a simple way to do it, I'm going to have to drop it :(

It's a really good idea though, so I'm going to try to find a good way to do it.
