Also, Pouet is a great site for Atari ST scene productions and I use it all the time. There are some lesser-known forms on Pouet that will allow you to find great things that you never knew existed.

Regardless of the difficult politics involved with this, no-one can deny the fact that DBug have done good things for the Atari scene with their hundreds of menus and falcon patches... As (of course) have Atari Legend as well.
Anyway - I'm looking forward to the extra areas being opened so I can help with contributing.

Heavy Stylus wrote:Why not? There's only a finite amount of apps for the Atari, and it would be great to have them all in one place. Sure, it would require a LOT of work, but if you opened up the AL system to *more* administrators then people could add entries for software that they use to save you from all the work.
We're both Atari users, yet I'm sure that we both use completely different tools and apps - and likewise I'm sure that some of the stuff you use is better than what I have on my HD, and vice versa. Having an online resource for all this where people could post comments/mini-reviews, screenshots, etc. would be really useful - almost as useful as the games DB in fact.

If you list what menu disk each one is on, then this makes the screenshots a lot easier too.

those databases are both abandoned but I have the DB from the second link... the database was maintained by SHAZZ/MJJ^TRSI.
