Hehe yeah my demo is a demo. :P Since there's only the map engine in there you can't call it a usable program quite yet. :P

This sounds like a great idea. Beyond listing the projects, there could be reviews and comments about each of them.

Agreed with LDStudios ; besides it would be better to post a news only if you tested the actual program, to be able to describe it.

This is starting to sound a lot like the functionality of a good downloads section, with app store-like presentation. Looks like the downloads section could use some TLC anyways.

App Store?
With locked down availability and trademark closed source?
Sounds like fun.

"app store-like presentation" != "locked down availability and trademark closed source?"

I'm not fond of the idea of having paid calculator games and programs, although I would be fine if the game in question had a full, complete free version and a cheap version with extras. Even then, though, I prefer the good ol' donation link/button in readme.

Hehe. Also considering most people publish the source for calc games, they can't be paid anyway. :P

I was strictly talking about the presentation of the app store. Primarily, having things like top downloads and featured pages. The featured pages would contain new uploads (and potentially updates), but could also contain hand-picked categories like "back to school" which would feature quality reference programs. A personalized updates page that shows you updates for programs that you previously downloaded would also be neat.

What I worry about is that when the upgrade started, admins seemed very vague about the future of the downloads section. It seemed like there was no plan to upgrade it, that in short terms that it would remain as it is now and that we seemed very lucky that Omni still has a download section. Since then, the only development done on the downloads section was to re-add download counts, which have yet to be public.

It would definitively be nice to see it integrated again into the website, with extra sections or features like you mentionned, but then you would probably need to give the suggestions via http://ourl.ca/request for faster response.

Also, I just looked through all the things finished in May so far, all I could find was one 2048 clone, one text-based rpg and one utility.
Not exactly a whole bunch of stuff IMO :P
