Sorting[edit source]

Hopefully Cryptic will start coming out with release version numbers. I can see the dates as being a categorical disaster. <span=help title="bobalobabingbong's User Page">~bobalobabingbong -=[ <span=help title="boba's Talk Page">T + <span=help title="boba's Contributions">C ]=- @ 21:45, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

They do sort of, each new version comes with a new version number in the launcher but the majority of this version number is just made up of a timestamp anyway (like the current version is ST.0.20100123a.6) Flibby 21:51, 28 January 2010 (UTC)
Dates are not too hard to manage, we managed it find over at guild wars wiki with dates, just need to make sure people start the new pages with the right year month day order then have some DPL to sort out the rest. :) --Lem (talk) 21:56, 28 January 2010 (UTC)
I only meant with the pages sorting in the category list. For the next 90 years, everything will be under 2. But after reflection, that should not be a problem. <span=help title="bobalobabingbong's User Page">~bobalobabingbong -=[ <span=help title="boba's Talk Page">T + <span=help title="boba's Contributions">C ]=- @ 22:38, 28 January 2010 (UTC)
Oh I will fix that once we have more, best idea is to break it down to a subcategory per month per year eg. [[Category:January 2010]] and then use modifiers so it sorts the entries within the category better, but I will sort that when we have more. Oh and I just looked and all the version numbers look something like this st.20100123.a, which isn't much better... lol --Lem (talk) 23:24, 28 January 2010 (UTC)
It's not a bad way to sort things. It's how we do it at my job. It's actually quite logical. On reflection, I think it will work out great. So basically, this turned out to be me typing before thinking. ;) <span=help title="bobalobabingbong's User Page">~bobalobabingbong -=[ <span=help title="boba's Talk Page">T + <span=help title="boba's Contributions">C ]=- @ 23:49, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
