Green is poison or antidote?

Yellow is energy (like, for running)?

Very pretty! Drawn on paper, scanned in and overpainted in GIMP?

I consider the learning and work required for publishing an open source project on a site intended for that purpose to be adequate.

OGA users should not have to stand confusing search results based on software developers' unwillingness to invest effort into properply positioning their work. 

Supporting software hosting is a potential moderation effort that I dont' see any return benefits in. EDIT: conidering how much benefits software projects gain from being located on a dedicated project hosting site with revision control which allows forking etc.

OGA can instead support developers by giving instructions for the easiest possible way to set up a repo that supports uploads for distributing binaries. It is probably enough to say "don't upload software here, use [link to list of open soruce hosting options] instead" though. 

Every submission on OGA needs to be an art asset of the categories that OGA provides. I realized that this case could be solved logically, if the submission gets turned into the submission of an example of the resulting asset (text, I assume) and the software gets included under an open source license as 'source')

PS: I won't continue objecting, thanks for clearly stating your position, BartK!

Hosting software on OGA, rather than on a software hosting solution, disturbs OGA search results. There is no Software category and there should not be.

If you feel that OGA should make it easy to find content generation software, then make a suggestion on how to achieve this without distrubing the art pool with a type of data that has no place on OGA.

The site is designed to help people find art. If they are looking for art generators they will ask on the forums or use a search engine.

Instead of uploading software to OGA, one should upload samples of what the software generates and link to the software in the description.

There is a massive infrastructure for open source software:

So I had to make a submission.

There is no need to use OGA as the hosting service. You can use links to other domains on OGA forums.

For sharing files that do not fit the art asset gallery on OGA, a file hosting service could be used. I recommend Box.net, Dropbox or Mediafire. Many software hosting services like Google Code allow you to upload files too.

Neither the website was built for hosting software, nor do people expect to find any.

I would suggest instead to upload samples of art created with a tool and then link to it in the submission, as well as introducing it in the forums.

PS: Content generators are awesome of course! Still, actual assets is what the 'submissions' are intended for.

You can also upload the .lmms in a zip, if you feel like sharing it.

yd for example does that with many of their lmms creations.

Cheers!

One should not use CC licenses for software

PS: IMHO OGA should not be used to host software at all.

The ending reminds me of UT99 music a bit, maybe Go Down? :)

What software did you make this with then?
