In your categorization you have made a fundamental mistake, you categorized the functions based on the question: "What category best exemplifies this function?". You should have inverted it: "What functions relate to the category topic?". By putting each function in one category it is much harder to find related functions. For example, you do not have a Base64 category and the Base64 functions are spread across two categories. Then there is llGiveMoney which has more in common with llGiveInventory then it does with llSetDamage. llGetAttached would make more sense under Attachments. llGetObjectDetails and llGetBoundingBox are closely related but in different categories. One of the points I guess I'm making is that "What category best exemplifies this function?" is a subjective question, it depends who is answering the question. I have enough trouble categorizing the functions as it is, balancing technical details with usability, we aren't going to agree on how to categorize them. -- Strife (talk|contribs) 02:50, 2 May 2010 (UTC)
