The website tracker is a disgrace. It files all bug reports to the ENIGMA tracker and everyone who comes here ends up filing LateralGM and Plugin issues there, which is a serious problem considering there will eventually be multiple IDE's.

I have already begun to accommodate this by moving the plugin to its own repository and moving all your old bug reports there.
https://github.com/enigma-dev/lgmplugin

Not only does the site tracker look like shit, it parses in BBCode since it is simply an extension of our forum which makes it incompatible with Git MarkDown cuasing the real issue tracker on GitHub to look like shit too.

My opinion is we should simply get the fuck rid of it and replace it with an embedded Wiki page that links people to the proper GitHub repository trackers and explain to them where a certain issue should be reported and how we would like them to report. Currently nobody even takes the time to add test cases or even thoroughly describe their problems, people literally need to be lead around by the fucking hand, and our site tracker isn't helping.

I think it was Leonardo da Vinci who once said something along the lines of "If you build the robots, they will make games." or something to that effect.
