Demos subcategories

category: general [glöplog]
Wouldn't it be useful to add subcategories to demos?
Example: Windows>OpenGL-DX9-DX10-DX11 ...

yes it would be useful. tagclouds would be even more useful ;)
it's been discussed a thousand times, I guess..

I'm not sure about tagclouds being useful. It usually ends up with having 20 different tags all meaning the same thing and just having slight differences in spelling etc. Creates more chaos than tidiness IMO.

the tagcloud idea does not imply that there is no moderation. heck, the current "category" moderation is "strict" to the core !

Ah ok. I associated tagcloud with completely user-controlled (like youtube etc.)

not to forget Software demos. i think it would be usefull if one wants to search for software demos. there's no way of finding software rendered demos like it is now i think(?).

You can always try to list stuff: http://pouet.net/lists.php.

actually semantic tagclouds (à la SoLo2...) would be a great addition to make demos pop up more in search engine results :)

and i often try to find again the names of some demos i have in mind linked to some more global concepts, but without much success.

I quite like the current categories...don't want a category overkill!

sounds like a nice idea (tag clouds).

btw, what about sorting platforms in inverse alphabetical order in popup lists? I'm REAAAAALLLLY pissed off every time i have to scroll all the way to get Windows! :p

Guess we can hire Solo as a keyword filling machine :)

It would be great if the tags could have keywords like voxel, rotozoomer, volumetric lights, etc so that I can for example search all the demos containing voxel landscapes or something. It's a dream I had in the past.

yes it would be interesting to do searches like that.
plus it could help to avoid the "it looks like ripped from this demo from 98", or inversely, provide inspiration sources for what you're working on.

i don't want to have to moderate all that nonsense.

Hm. How about a demo wiki?
