Search By HIP Attachments?

Recommended Posts

One of the best things about this website is the vast number of example HIP files you can find. It would be nice if there was a way to search for threads with example HIP files.

My Atom's Link Page was an attempt to try to offer some quick links to some of the examples I found useful. But being able to actually search for HIP (.hip, .hiplc, .hipnc) files would be a nice feature. Icing on the cake would be to sort by number of downloads then the most downloaded HIP files would rise to the top.

Try such search. Some garbage at first page, but most results are posts with hipnc files. Not very promising, since most files are problem scenes, not examples. Download number is better, but it depends on how long ago the file was uploaded. Even small fixes may have about 30-40 dls a year later, so, there will be good old files on top, I think.

There has been some discussion about building a database to house all of these and harvest the forums for good ones. We haven't quite figured out the best way forward though, and a lot of manual labor would be required to find the good ones. 

But yes, it would be a nice thing to have.
