    We have a very long wishlist of new features and way too few people coding those features. Even worse, the programmers tend to be jack of all trades and does everything (particularly Kailric). I decided to attempt a bit of resource management and see if non-programming tasks can be removed from programmers. This thread is for just that: posting tasks which takes little or no technical skills to do.

    The first task I will add is adding singular/plural versions of strings. It's actually not that hard.

    We have this string right now:
    It should be written like this:
    The result is that it uses the first string whenever NUM1 (aka %d1) is 1 and the latter for all other numbers. Replace 1 with whatever number is needed for the string in question.

    Are there anybody who feels like looking though the strings and apply this where it's needed?

    Ok, I think I managed the text XML editing; but I got the attached error when trying to push with SmartGit (hope I didn't break anything, it's been months since I've gotten anything to work lol :blush:)

    It turns out you had write permission for col2071, but not M:C. Against my better judgement I have given you write permission and pray for no medieval aliens :please:

    No, that's the read only URL :p

    If you log on to SF before obtaining the URL, you can get one with your username in it. Your personal URL would be:
    Code:
    ssh://col2071@git.code.sf.net/p/colonizationmodcollection/Medieval_Conquest

    I just looked through it. It looks great. Not only did you apply the plural like I wrote about, you also fixed grammar and other linguistic issues :goodjob:

    You ended up working in master branch though. That is by definition the last release. We use develop to prepare next release. Luckily git is designed to merge branches with ease and copy from one branch to another. Seriously git was developed because they were unhappy with how hard it is to do in svn. The competition has forced svn to improve.
