A very valid point. If I'm not mistaken, migrating the docs from l.autohotkey.net to autohotkey.com would not take very long.
mismatched documentation would be the only valid argument but that should be easy to fix
Exactly. As I stated in my rather lengthy
reply to polyethene's explanation, the best thing we can do is to give Lexikos write access to autohotkey.com, and finally replace AutoHotkey Basic with AutoHotkey_L, including the documentation (after removing the _L suffix, of course).
I am just... honestly stunned by polyethene's recent behaviour. Not only he has bypassed the existing efforts
at modernizing the website, he has also broken the consensus on this very thread about promoting _L to official status, imposing instead his own view on the issue & not listening to the community. This is de-facto a coup d'état
of by the other site administrator. The only way out of this recent crisis is restoring the site back to its previous state, then making a collective decision about the future of AutoHotkey, starting with the already open "AutoHotkey Nova" project. Chris should definitely intervene now.Open message to AutoHotkey Basic users
: calm down and do not be afraid of AutoHotkey_L. Using it does not require you to learn about new features such as objects and COM. You can still do things as you used to, with some additional (and optional) bonuses. It's still perfectly marketable as an automation tool with hotkeys.
