I wanted to see if it was possible to clarify "The Rules" () we've been given for mods. In my opinion, it's confusing to see rules like "No web browsers" and "No eReaders, PDF viewers, Spreadsheets, or similar", while also having the first example on the same page discuss how to "steal" an idea from a web page and make it more directly visible. I can certainly understand if LAFORGE doesn't want users to have their field of vision replaced with full screens of any kind, but I'm not understanding the rules as they are written.
A few hypothetical examples of why I'm confused:
- I create a Mod that displays an entire text file two lines at a time. Is this "an eReader" and therefore forbidden, or have I just "stolen" the ability to digest the text in its simplest form as the website praises?
- I create a Mod that shows in real-time the title of the current web page being browsed on my phone. Is that a "web browser" or "mirroring" and against the rules?
- I create a Mod that shows videos in only one pane, and at only half-size. The Rules only state "no fullscreen playback of videos", so is this Mod valid or not?
These are just a few ideas off the top of my head that suggest further clarification of what Mods are really supposed to be. Could someone chime in with a better summary of what LAFORGE is looking for?
