I would like to encourage everyone to join the conversation in
the new forums if you can...  I realize change is hard, and can
be annoying, but many new pyramid fans will be a part of the
conversation in the new location, and it would be great to keep
the discussion in one place!

that are listed in the new Pocket Guide to Looney Pyramids, and

the Starship Captains private forum.)

I propose a Big Change th the IceWiki:

        * Rename "games in development" as "community games". (Games
actually in development can still be singled out with categories.)
* Split the "Existing Games" page into two pages, "published games" and
"award-winning games".         * Move the Community Games subsection from
"existing games" to the new "Community Games" page.         * Update the
navigation bar as appropriate.

Thist way we have the ever-helpful "what can I play", official LL games,
and award-winners known to be good, while the community games (which
always seem in perpetual playtest) have a page of their own, whether in
development or not.

What does this address?  For years, I've gotten complaints that games
aren't moving from "Games Under Development" to Existing Games.  Thus
Existing Games has in practice been a static list of pyramid games as
they existed in 2005, as dead as the SLICK they were imported from.
Meanwhile, What Can I Play has been constantly updated and is far more
helpful.  Community games since 2005 keep piling up in Games Under
Development.  My proposal eliminates the distinction between "complete"
and "in development" community games, and addresses the frequent concerns
that "existing games" and "games under development" pages are outdated
and not helpful.
