I have to say, the map section of the website is lacking in several aspects.

First, you cannot edit posts in any way. If you accidentally post the wrong map, if you forget to write something or write something wrong, you cannot fix it. Second, it does not accept the division of text into paragraphs. I press the enter key to make lines, and I see the text having the correct division of paragraph, then I hit 'upload map' and I get a single text wall. And I can't fix it because it cannot be edited. Also, it does not display the hints.

When you click on "Donations - A list of all users, who donated to us." who are a link to http://sourceforge.net/project/project_donations.php?group_id=40163, Sourceforge redirect to a Paypal page who tried to take money from your Paypal account (Bitte geben Sie einen Spendenbetrag ein.)

Where is the list?

That seems very uncorrect to me to force donations like that.

Took a while to find the link you mentioned... This is one example, where our wiki isn't up to date. I've changed the text according to the text on the right "Donation box".

About the list: I don't know where the list is, nor if everyone who donate want's to see his name somewhere in the wild. A short story from me: I just spend some money, but due lack of an paypal account i give my brother the money and he spends it over his paypal account. I know that that this use case (someone with paypal account spends for a third person) isn't as rare. So such a list would may contain the wrong names.

Maintain such a list is also a question of time. And because lack of people, there is no time to fiddle out who wants to be in that list and who don't face-smile.png

The "do not turn CamelCase into wikilinks" ! shows up in the TOC.

c.f. "Former Project Hosting on !SourceForge" on this page:

Do you mean the callsign in the toc? This comes from the article code:

## Former Project Hosting on !SourceForge
[...]

This bad "CamelCase is automatically turned into a link" thing drives me crazy... A CamelCase word that starts with a call sign isn't automatically turned into a link and the call sign gets removed. This happens after markdown has done his job (and added the TOC with links). Turning CamelCase into links only applies to normal Text (not links), so you couldn't see the call sign in the header, but in the toc.

"CamelCase to links" should be removed... it makes more problems than it solves. Moreover it find it really bad having texts like "See the LinksPage for ...."

I would be OK with removing the magic CamelCase - we woule need to make sure that this doesn't break any existing links though.

Yes, thats a disadvantage: One has to go through all wiki articles and turn CamelCase into [Camel Case](/wiki/CamelCase). Maybe i find a convenient way to do this automatically by a script in the admins page, but i also want to have a better syntax for this, f.e. Wiki Links. This is maybe a task after build 19 is released.

Currently i am working on the suggestion from king_of_nowhere...

Wiki Links sounds good face-smile.png

I agree that map submission is more important.
