Improving these pages

It strikes me that a lot could be done to improve these pages. There are real signal/noise problems here that, at least in my opinion, are stopping these pages from being as useful as they could be. Some suggestions:

  • Separate feature requests and bug reports with subcategories (Category:Feature Requests and Category:Bug Reports).
  • Create a {{bugreport}} template(s) to standardise the intro to the pages and to encourage a common bug report format.
  • Write up some guidelines on what is a good bug report and what isn't (what info to include, be succinct, etc).
  • Decide on some basic standard page templates for grouping the bugs. E.g. group them by "map errors", "script file errors", "code errors".
  • Implement a rudimentary classification system - class A, B, C. Perhaps some small traffic light icons (red = A, green = C, etc) of similar size to <Half-Life 2> could be placed next to each bug, so the list can easily be scan-read. Cosmetic bugs crowding out more serious bugs is the single biggest problem with these lists, imo.

I have a feeling this page won't be seeing any Valve devs. Ever. --Alph Tech STUART 21:10, 2 Jun 2006 (PDT)
