An email which can solve it all

I recently got an email from Ralf, also known as Findus. He is the manager of Sokoplaza together with Werner Ettinger.

Without knowing anything, what is happening on this site, he wanted to release all the remaining non-commercial levels, still remaining on Sokoplaza, to Let's logic site.

So I'm asking you two, Razorflame and Bjorn, do you want me to ask them, to make those levels also available on this site and thus a part of Sokoban for Windows? Since I'm assuming, you would want that (judging from the numerous uploads of levels in the previous month).

There are 4 giant packs to consider:
1. New packs (not yet published anywhere)

2. Collected Remodel packs (which I've published revisioned as the Arranged sets and the Mass Remodel)

3. Packs in conjunction with 2., which make the previous revision (reduction) into a whole (Sasquatch Remodels by York Shen, York Shen collection, All remodels by Zhenjing, Small and medium remodels by Gyjgw)
PS: York Shen, Zhenjing and Gyjgw are also members of Sokoplaza, so we would have their consent.

4. Packs published on Lets logic directly from Sokoplaza (that are not in the upper 3)

That would be fine from me, though why make such a big fuss when the few arranged packs that made it onto this site were uploaded onto this site in the first place if this was eventually going to be the plan?

Ok.

Though why make such a big fuss when the few arranged packs that made it onto this site were uploaded onto this site in the first place if this was eventually going to be the plan.

It wan't the plan actually. It was a coincidence, that it is the community's wish to make the remaining levels public. I wasn't actually planing to upload anything further.

If this site wishes to have all those huge number of levels, Sokoplaza should be informed, and now it will be. If the new collections are hosted on this site, it is going to be with the consent of those who made(or collected or documented) them, with proper info in the description. It was the opposite in the initial upload.
(Without that email by Findus, things would remain as they are now).

Yes, though I hope that you don't instantly upload all of your solutions for the new levels. I hope you give people a few weeks to get through all the levels that are uploaded before you upload your own solutions, seeing as you're the top solver at the moment.

If the new collections from Sokoplaza make it to this site, I will let others to solve the levels first.

After consulting with Findus, he has agreed with me to publish those collections, which are a direct result of the work (collecting, managing, documenting and level-naming) of Sokoplaza members (and were alredy published on Let's logic site), to Sourcecode site as well.

Note: It is not in our interest to hold these levels for our selves or for certain sites only. But we also take the privilege to be the only ones, who can submit them.

And do read the description, to see who did what. The descriptions must be a mandatory part of the published collections.
