Names of the articles with AutoHotkey scripts

I have a general problem with all auto hotkey script articles. The article names don't indicate that they are about Auto hotkey scripts.

The same problem exists for ideas and suggestions but there a string is prepended which is not a nice solution.

Before renaming the articles we should look for good solutions for the problem. I will test if namespaces could work here. --Lefteous 09:57, 22 Sep 2005 (EST)


My idea for that is: All scripts should have as first item: AutoHotkey: Then: Name of the script"
Example: "AutoHotkey:Always copy/move in Queue" -would be show as title of the page and will seperate it clear from functions of TC. The Wiki-search will show hits with that title. Kind regards --Stance 10:29, 22 Sep 2005 (EST)

We should introduce some new namespaces. I have proposed it in our forum. --Lefteous 11:25, 22 Sep 2005 (EST)

Lefteous, what about to add: "AutoHotkey:" into each title of every script?
Would be a plus for the look and for the former function of the wiki search!
I started in the german Wiki with the missing pages.
namespaces- sounds good, hope SysOp will make it work.Friendly --Stance 13:40, 22 Sep 2005 (EST)

Rating, age, credits

I'm thinking about adding a complexity rating, credits, and create date to the scripts.
Like this:

AutoHotkey: Always copy / move in Queue by Hacker, 18:04, 22 Aug 2005, Basic

AutoHotkey: Auto add URL to Background transfer manager by Hacker, 20:58, 26 Aug 2005, Advanced short

What do you think? --SanskritFritz


Reasonable idea I think.

Well, I tried to categorize the scripts into difficulty and complexity levels, and finally gave up ;-) It's very hard to judge a script this way, so I just leave it to the reader. After all the title says what a script is for, and with a little experience one can tell if the task is hard to implement or it is just a basic tweak in AHK.
But at least I updated the page with the credits.

Division in sections

I think we should consider to divide all thos scripts to sections. With those 30+ scripts one looses track, IMHO.

Unfortunately I have no clue how those sections could look like. Any ideas??

Good idea! I'm thinking about some possible categories.
Hmm, is the wiki capable to perform some dinamic operations? I mean can we sort the list by various fields, like date or wiki user? This way anyone would have at least some options to sort.

Hey Partner,
Great work. Sorry for the delay, this must have been slipped through my attention. I think this is a good division and that way one can find a script that is useful.
You should change the AHK site this way I think.
