In the beginning there was the thread: "Complete list of all third party tools, spreadsheets, manuals and other data sources".
In the end there will be the website version of it: ED3PTT (codename) which stands for "ED 3rd Party Tools Thread"
The OP thread became so large that I started to experience technical difficulties like leaking spoiler tags. Some tools belong to multiple categories and keeping everything in sync became a major PITA. I made a request for help and commander biobob kindly offered to create a website version of the thread.
Basically ANYONE can add ANY information to ED3PTT. You have to be logged in for that. If you like a tool, have seen an interesting thread or video you can add it. Everything is allowed unless it is SPAM. Authors whose tool tool/thread/video is/are already in ED3PTT can "claim it" and become the owner of it. As a matter of fact before release authors will receive an invitation so they can edit and enhance their entries. We have three major categories tools, threads and videos. In it are subcategories like trading, logbook, OCR, EDDN. Atm there are 82 tools, 61 threads and 2 videos in ED3PTT.
The source code of ED3PTT will be made open source. The data (entries) of ED3PTT will be available for everything in the form of API. RSS feeds for new, updated entries and news exist. The website will be smartphone/tablet friendly. Almost forgot, its also optimized for SEO so that the entries can be easily found with search engines like Google.
Work on ED3PTT started in April or so but RL made sure we didn't progress as fast as we wanted and were ninja-ed by FD's community website for ED. Now we are nearing completion. Biobob has performed miracles with the site. As everything with regard to ED3PTT will be open Biobob and myself thought it would appropriate/fitting to ask the community (for which we are building it) to help us decide on a good, fitting, catchy name.
A while back I created the thread "(WIP) Tool codenamed ED3PTT is looking for a better name. Any Suggestions?" to ask for a good name. I added most of them to the poll. You can enter up to three choices. Let yourself be heart.
Note: If you have a suggestion for a name which is not in the poll, feel free to add it here. Perhaps there is a brilliant name we have overlooked so far ;-)
Variants with a - sign are possible. Example EDTC or ED-TC. The domain names have been checked by biobob. In fact for some a minus sign is (almost) required.
You can select up to three choices in the poll.
Update: If you have any questions about the website feel free to ask them here ;-)
