^Maybe you should just go back to the Matrix forums then? Or to wherever you came here from.

Quite honestly, I've tried to be welcoming and accomodating to your crew, but I've received nothing but complaints since you arrived. "The registration process is too difficult"; "the anti-spam measures are too cumbersome"; "people are posting off topic comments in our thread"...Just wow. Heaven forbid someone casts a little bit of humor into a website for wargames. End of the world. 

You are guests here and have done nothing to introduce yourselves to the community. You're off to a very peculiar, and not particularly positive start.   :idiot2:

I am. Posts with absolutely no relevance to the subject do nothing to enhance the subject at hand.

If this forum believes otherwise, them a wargaming "grog" you are not.

Filling up a thread with nonsensical posts are the province of those who just wish to disseminate crap.

^Dude, are you serious?

Lighten up.

We are happy to host all of you here and would love for you to integrate into our well-established and tight knit community, but you can't be so sensitive over a couple of comments that were clearly said in jest.

If you have any real issue with a post please feel free to report it, or PM me directly. Additionally, if there is anything you feel your group needs to make your experience here more productive, again, just reach out directly.

Seems like we are getting spammed here already!

I thank the two of you. You are really most unhelpful.

Somehow I had the idea that this was a forum for those serious about wargaming.

Looks like we have wandered into another Kiddie World.

What is this vortex I've been sucked into and how do I escape without resorting to thermo nuclear war?

Larry has stated in the Matrix forum that he would like to see this proceed as an open source project, but all of this is not even in the planning stage yet. More like in the "let's see if we can find enough interest and support to start planning" stage.

Will this be an free/libre open source project? Does everyone understand those terms or does it require further explanation?

I'm going register a nay for XML. While it is plain text, the mark up makes it hard to read and edit by hand, which will be necessary until an editor exists. JSON or YAML are better choices from a manual editing stand point.
I can't say that I'm familiar with JSON or YAML, but looking at the examples in the Wiki links, I didn't really find them any easier to read than XML.  One advantage of XML is that it is easy to manipulate programatically, which will facilitate creation of an editor, which should be the main (but not sole) means of editing files.  How do JSON and YAML compare in this regard?
It's just as easy in the worst case. In the best case, if the language has dictionary/hashmap and variant array types, JSON/YAML objects and arrays correspond to the those two types so data manipulation is very natural. JSON also loads faster than XML due to simpler mark up and more limited structure. YAML actually loads slower than JSON due to lack of mark up. XMLs main benefit is flexibility but that comes with some overhead.
