does ZX Spectrum platform needs to be subdivided?

Pentagon was homemade and required extra work for connecting AY co-processor or a keyboard. Pentagon could have any config its owner wanted because if you started soldering you can never end it.

ATM Turbo was sold as a whole (with AY) and had sockets.

If I make a random homebrew Z80-based computer with a rainbow on it, do I get my own "spectrum" category too?

trc_wm, no, you didn't)

please create the categories and help stop the drama.

When people start thumbing down prods because they don't like the way they were categorised, I think we've basically lost all hope of ever making people happy. I suggest randomly assigning Spectrum prods to a breed of duck instead.

ATM must be subdivided. throw this shit rom demoscene)

This thread was started in September 2009. It's been almost five years. I really doubt the admins are interested in changing this.
anyway, purpose was - move AlCo's prods to the "top of.."

just vote for his crapmos, maybe AlCo calm down)))

nobody interested in this subdivision..

g0blinish would be happy if it had separate category "tsconf" where he'd be the "top of.." and had no more reasons to blame works for ZX Spectrum clones such as ATM Turbo.
anyway ATM Turbo demos is crap.
Always wondered why NedoDemo 2 won at place.

ZX Spectrum platform needs to be subsided.

Maybe extra "type" tags will do? For example, diver has already marked The Link with "wild" tag ("ATM Turbo" tag will be better). Although he didn't mark VBI's "tsconf" demo even with that (so in the prodlist it appears as a ZX Spectrum demo which it definitely isn't) - maybe because of his personal relations with the author of the hardware (he's recently quit zx-pk.ru forum for that author's forum and took this "tsconf" hardwave for his former Spectrum-only demoparty 3BM).
("tsconf" is V6Z80P-like FPGA hardware where the author used an existing board instead of creating its own.)
Ouch. This is clutching at straws, man, and pretty desperate at that too.

Come on this is hopeless. Lately I happily browse all these new ZX-would-seem demos just to see by the screenshot that in fact they have nothing to do with ZX Spectrum. ZX Spectrum ends on 128k +3. Any newer clone is a clone, not ZX Spectrum. They have many colours, don't have attribute clash, and have yanked up CPUs. If you are reluctant to multiply categories then just throw all the real Spectrums to one category but FFS separate the clones!

I'm starting to agree here: ZX Spectrum platforms needs to be subdivideds. A ZX Evo with the TS-Config is more like a FPGA implementation of a completely different machine altogether.

I think it needs to be subdivided into "platform for sane people who actually do things" and "platform for the usual trolls who keep flaming each other on pouet whether the platform needs to be divided".
I dunno about creativity complexes, trolling and stuff. Lets not mix politics into something purely technical. For many pouet is a library of demos, and library needs good indexing. With ZX Spectrum it's a mess right now.

Saga Musix, +1.
