Rename the MiPs section.

An Idea

The name of the MiPs section seems to only cause confusion. I suggest it be renamed to something like "Abandoned Work" or something like that (if anyone has better suggestions feel free to say).

Currently people get confused and think it is a place to add maps that they are still working on, basically thinking it's the map version on the WiPs section, which it isn't.

The MiPs rule page states :
The MiPs Section is for Maps which are incomplete and have been abandoned by the Author(s) and uploaded so that others may continue the map.
The name of the section should be changed to reflect that and stop this confusion once and for all!

    I think Castaways is a good one. Not map specific and not really negative. Everything else I thought of was in some way negative (Scrapyard, Junkyard, Aalvage, Debris, Derelict etc).

    Castaways is a good one I agree, not negative but also can't get confused with the WiPs section.

    Rename MIP to Mapsrc - Maps sources.
    This name does not cause any confusion. All clearly.
    When another schoolboy wants to do de_dust remake, he will go to this section.

    Let's call it RaWs, after the unprocessed camera data. 
    This word can be associated with unfinished, not yet completed  "raw" files.

    Unfinished or raw would still get confused with WiPs in my view, that's why I like the name "Abandoned" or a variant on, less likely to get confused.

    Should it be for all kinds of abandoned work, not just maps?

    We could call it:

    • Abandonware
    • AbandonMods
    • Backburners
    • DumpedMods


    Well, there is the models section, which kinda does the same but for models instead of maps. If you really want to do this, you either merge it with the models section, or make a distinction.
    I disagree, the models section is for work taken to a specific stage and stopped. You can't upload a half finished model to the models section.


    Distinction it is. How about making it the assets section?
    Seems too vague. Prefabs and models are assets too.

    True, but it's better than most other suggestions. How about unfinished assets? It implies no further work is going to be done on it and more work is required before use.

    MiP suggest Map in Progress which implies that it is active development. I always saw it as the WiP section for maps. Mind = blown.

    Maybe there should be something like a section that is for mods that became "open for community development" since the developer does not have the time or manpower to finish it. 

    Assets imply that it is a finished single piece of work ready to use in your map. Everything with dump and yard suggest that everything on there is trash. It is just unfinished.
