UTIL Stuff

I wasn't sure about putting Category:UTIL on the cl_entityreport's page -- I can't think of a place to put things like that and other functions like AngleVectors - They seem like they should have a "handy functions" but I have no idea how to name it or what all would go in it. -LordNed 03:04, 15 April 2011 (UTC)

Hey; regarding AngleVectors: right now there is Category:Functions and Category:Math_Functions for those kind of things, the latter one is not exactly used much atm as you can see. If you take a look at the math headers (mathlib, vector, matrix etc) I would personally suggest having even a unique category about vector math. But due to their nature all of those functions may need an easy explanation that is understandable for everyone, so maybe the amount of work behind that explains why not many of them are documented yet.
cl_entityreport wouldn't belong there either though. It's a debug cvar so I would guess that it belongs in Category:Console_Variables and probably Category:Debugging (I just found that one...). --Biohazard 09:17, 15 April 2011 (UTC)
I'm actually having this conversation with TomEdwards right now too -- Maybe we need to straighten out the way to get the information? As you proved above, there's categories and pages and stuff no one's ever seen, maybe due to an improper name, or they did something weird - like AngleVectors(). Maybe it's time to consider a serious revision to the way one finds information on this wiki?
