Yeah, tepples is right, there's probably not going to be a case where we need a loose .nesproject file by itself. Sorry for the bother.

Another extension request: .lua

Would be good for sharing FCEUX lua scripts.

.lua has been added to the same group that contains .js and .py.

Does anyone know if there is a way to get phpBB to display a warning for a particular extension, such as a warning that many people won't be able to open it and that another format is superior in the vast majority of cases? Like PCX vs. PNG, or some obscure archive format vs. ZIP and 7Z, or AI vs. SVG?

There's no reason to treat the user like a baby that doesn't know what they're doing. If they want to upload a file, that's a deliberate choice they made to upload that specific file. There's no reason to warn them that some webmaster out there likes some other kind of file better.

Also, I find it kinda pointless to lecture people who are clueless about file formats, since they're probably the least qualified to do proper conversions. We don't want to get files with the wrong extensions (i.e. simply renamed) or catastrophic .ai to .svg conversions.

If you really think that a file format lecture is in order, a sticky post somewhere would probably work better, because you could explain everything in detail and why certain formats are preferred for certain purposes. Then we could point people to this post whenever necessary (which probably won't happen that frequently), rather than showing annoying warnings every time a file is attached.

Request for extension: .pal

Useful for discussions that benefit from sharing palette files.
