widelands.fr is now enough complete for show it to people (but we still work to add content). We have add a link to widelands.org on homepage, i suppose you will not add a link to our website anywhere.

Why? We have tried to help you (give hints where to find the font, answered every question you have) why don't you trust? To be honest: It is really not easy to answer you're posts, if you always assume we all are bad guys.

I believe we had a solution for linking external pages related to widelands, and most people do agree with this solution:

May a solution in between would be preferable: Adding a "Links" entry in the main menu with links to specific headers of a Wikipage. F.e. "Links -> Fansites" would directly link to the Wikipage "LinksPage -> Header Fansites".

Making a wikipage with all known links is very good. Some of the links are quite old and some will disapear in time, so we have to be able to change that face-smile.png

The only Problem is: Who checks this links for validity and to be secure? But we have no big community at the moment and we have already an open wiki and discovered no bad usages until now. If the community grows up the wiki maybe will be more interesting for users/bots who are spamming the wiki. As i can tell from another great german wiki, from time to time the wikipages gets spammed with links to bad pages, but those links weren't often tricky and were easy to find and fix.

Long story, short conclusion: I think we should try it with the Links Page (or add a new page) and modify it to have links to other external pages. But don't expect i do edit/create this page. It's a wiki, so every registered user could edit/do this. I will add the Links to the main menu, if the wikipage is ready to go face-smile.png

I put this task on my todo list, but I won't be annoyed if someone else does the job.

I have a backup of the website. I'll probably host this copy somewhere one of these days. I just need a bit of time to do that. I'll tell you when it's done.
