FAQ
*tap* *tap* .. is this thing on?

The FAQ says posting here is they way to request a new script category.
Is this true?

Is there an alternate way to get the job done?

    Yes. What category do you wish to see?

    I'd like to see Fun/MP3/Rio. Please see my previous message
    titled "New Script Category: Fun/MP3/Rio".

    I'd like to suggest that "Fun" is sufficiently meaningless to be a reall
    Bad Idea. MP3 goes into the Sound or Audio category, not the "Fun"
    category. Or Multimedia. Fun just does not mean anything, and is
    certainly not where I would look for something about MP3s. Just MHO, and
    my vote.

    "Fun" is the root category. Quite redundant here. ;)

    OK, no problem. I suggested it because it's in the example script. (Trying to be
    culturally correct I guess.)

    How about Sound|Audio/MP3/Rio ?

    I don't think you need to add the third level. How about Audio/MP3?

    OK, I formally propose the category Audio/MP3.

    Please rescue me from feeping creaturism and code bloat. I need a category
    to stop me from hacking on this poor thing! 8)

    I think we've kicked this around long enough. I've created the
    category. Let the audio begin!
