What is this article doing here when there is a more comprehensive one?

Unless you haven't noticed, features like custom loading screens aren't SEXPs. This has a place, it just needs expansion. - Snail 00:00, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
I noticed, but when I saw Improved Team Loadout on the side of the FRED page, I thought that everything else should have its own page, too. But that might not be a good idea after all. --SypheDMar 08:05, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
  • In its current form, it is useless and outdated. Firstly, if this is meant to be for minor SCP additions for FRED, the title should reflect that. Drawing a line between two icons in the briefing is also a minor FRED feature, yet I suspect this isn't the page that should deal with it. Secondly, define minor. My definition of minor probably conflicts with someone else's. Consequently, the feature that I label as minor may be a substantial, groundbreaking, mind-numbing new addition to someone else. The default beam-free-all in the Missions Spec Editor, in my definition, is minor because it quite simply saves some time for the FREDder. But what about being able to set a loading screen? That's a different kind of feature, and I'm not sure I'd call it minor, because it's noticeable as soon as you load the mission. - TopAce 09:21, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
