From Just Solve the File Format Problem
Jump to: navigation, search

I don't want to be difficult, but are we going to stick with this new "XX*" style of article naming? It seems weird to me. Never seen any other wiki do it. Even if the reader guesses that * means pattern matching, the article doesn't actually cover all formats that start with "AP". I don't have the answer, but I think even "AP* Atari graphic formats" would be better. -Jsummers (talk) 12:58, 13 August 2020 (UTC)

I agree with you, it's not ideal. I didn't want to create a 'catch all' page, but I could find so very little information on these formats and since they are similar I mainly just wanted to get 'something' up here, that encompasses the fact that these formats are very similar and very little info is known about them, along with sample files. Naming is always hard. Feel free to rename them to anything else, and if in the future I need to create another catchall, I'll make sure to follow whatever naming convention you establish with this one. I hope my additions haven't caused too much headache :( Sembiance (talk) 19:39, 13 August 2020 (UTC)
I've moved two that I thought had straightforward alternative names. Effect2 (talk) 19:38, 17 August 2020 (UTC)
