Table vs List

Is there a reason to put this list in a table instead of the old list? There is no need to put the text in so little cells with so many line breaks. --Progman 23:23, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

The only reason I see is that it now fits on a single screen, but I don't really mind either way. EER 23:33, 12 January 2009 (UTC)
I think the old list looked much better. ConditionalZenith 02:28, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

Distributing NewGRFs

With the new central distrubtion for GRFs why is the auto-download of the grfs on server connect still 100% refused? What is the difference between a user checking a box and hitting download and the game downloaded it when needed anyway? What do others think? do you agree it needs a re-discussion?

Distributing NewGRFs from a location that the NewGRF author can control and agree on is something completely different from 'peer-to-peer' distributing of NewGRFs by joining servers. With the current system you can only download stuff that the author agrees on may be downloaded, if you would download everything from the server you are joining the author has absolutely nothing to say about distribution. The major problem NewGRF authors have with downloading via joining servers is that buggy NewGRFs stay 'alive' much longer and they get more complaints about things that are already fixed.
