:That may be a good idea, but while we're on the topic of requests, can you use a normal signature? Red links means the page isn't yet created. Also, using your own font (and inserting what seems to be a non-hyperlinked character in the middle of your name) really takes away from the continuity of the wiki format. -- [[User:MetaFight|MetaFight]] 17:57, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

::Yeah I'm pretty good at writing in wiki but I have no idea how we could make polls or some way for people to easily vote for what they want. As for my sig, The text is red and non-created pages are more of a rust-orange-red. I put the black character (which IS hyperlinked) so it wouldn't confuse people as to whether the page was created or not. I think it fits very well with the continuity of the wiki format because it's a customized sig that (at least I THOUGHT) doesn't confuse people. I guess I'll change it a little...

Quick question - is there a list of dedicated beta testers? I understand that the point might be that you test it yourself and when you think it is ready, release it to the world then fix problems as they come in, but I think that good games could be missed as they are picked up too early by the community.

Well, you made the link to your user page, and then you blanked your user page out. LoganA 23:52, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

Where?

Where do we put requests for homebrew applications, games and libraries? I'd like to see:

  • 3d helper library similar to libwiisprite in spririt
  • Functions to do save/load game data from SD card -- I guess this exists. It would be nice to see some standards, then a general save game manager could be created.
  • Real Wii internal memory support to save/load homebrew data.
  • DevKitPro support for WiiBalanceBoard
  • Support for getting Mii data and support for rendering Mii's
