Don't do the questions and answers yourself, it's useless.

so when are those that know how to develop / technically administer this site going to implement your solution you think? My proposal is simple, how many people would actually apply?

I propose this solution because I have seen it before. I don't think it is difficult to implement.

Yes too simple, even if there are a few dozen people participating in the wiki. It can take several days or even up to two or three weeks for a submitted download to be enabled, so it's better to find a solution that doesn't add extra work to the people who take care of the site. If people have other interesting ideas don't hesitate to give them.

So the manual labour here is minimal, and way better than the current damage control.

Currently there is nothing.

ren wrote:

Of course a site admin should only give access (when requested) when a user is deemed trustworthy enough (common sense etc.)

This is not possible or at least not desirable because too restrictive.

I am not here to impose my solution, I propose. Sdsnatcher73's propositon seems interesting but is already the case for the registration, is not.

Since it is a Japanese company that seems widespread in Japan only, I think it is better to not translate the name.

This mouse is not for MSX but for PC-98.

The Aucnet auction indicates MSX.

"It can be remodeled into an X68000, FM-TOWNS mouse by attaching a chip resistor.
I will attach a cable for FM-TOWNS."

This is a mistake. Look the connector.

As the author of the auction precises it, it can be modified.

Even if it is changeable (which must be the case with many mice of the time), it is not easy to find a sufficiently flexible cable with a connector. Anyway, the page must be deleted.

what is the connection?

We're not going to put all the PC-98 mice in the Wiki because we can get them to work on MSX with an adapter. we can also make an adapter for PS/2 and USB mice. And also for SNES and Sega master system / Megadrive controllers.
