Is it possible and advisable to add some file types to the allowed ones? For AutoCAD wiki, it seems we would want to sometimes upload files like dwg, dvb, mnu, mnl, cui, and several others. Is there a policy on this? Tom Haws 23:34, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

p.s. I guess zip alone would address our need conveniently enough if that's possible. Tom Haws 23:35, 24 April 2008 (UTC)
No zip (exe, com, scr, pif - you got the point) upload. AutoCAD files - why not. Pls give me a list of file ext you need + some info what are the less known ones. -- Nef @fandom (talk) 04:26, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for the response. Here's a list. Tom Haws 14:21, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
Drawing eXchange Format
the usual
menu source
customized user interface xml (new menu format)
Menu-associated AutoLISP source
AutoLISP source
Autolisp fast-load AutoLISP
Visual Lisp compiled
VBA project
Any known problems with trojans/other malicious code in *lisp or vba files? -- Nef @fandom (talk) 16:10, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
If I were in Wikia's position, the only one I would be speamish about would be DVB, the VBA extension. "With the ability to embed VBA projects into drawings, malicious code and viruses have entered the CADD world." [1] A Google search for "AutoCAD virus" reveals two cases since 2000. However, I don't personally know of virus activity as an issue at the Autodesk or AutoCAD User Group International forums. Tom Haws 16:34, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
Thx for info. All except dvb - done. What shall we do with dvb? Is it very important for you to have it enabled for autocad.wikia? -- Nef @fandom (talk) 18:40, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
Thanks so much. Let's wait and see on the dvb. My biggest idea about dvb files is that it would be hard or impossible to post dialogue box VBA programs without uploading the dvb project. Oh, p.s. Could you do one other one? Tom Haws 18:52, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
dialog control language for AutoLISP
dcl done. dvb - lets wait then. If you find autocad.wikia really needs them pls "reopen" this thread. We'll see if we can make it reasonably secure. For now - have fun with your wiki and make it shine! (-; -- Nef @fandom (talk) 06:42, 26 April 2008 (UTC)
