Shader Library

I have a suggestion to make, I found a lot of ogre shaders on the forum, and also on other places of the internet, why not create a shader library or some such, for example in the wiki where people can post their own shaders, including descriptions etc, in this way the quality of OGRE would improve a lot, without so much work, except from people in the community who contribute their shaders? Maybe with possibilty to comment and rate each shader etc.

I think this would be great for OGRE. Is their any reason it hasn't been done?

Well, just go ahead and start it. However, this was tried before, but never really done. I think it is already enough to put your working shaders in the wiki. I was thinking about restructuring and making an own page for them once there are some (more than simple orange shaders ;) ).

Have a look at these threads:

Isn't the wiki a good place to put shaders in? A specific section with a page for each shader would be nice.
But it's a lot of work for sure.

This is a huge idea - for me it doesn't matter whether it is in wiki or somewhere else -> but I would prefer a structured wiki to allow anybody to post, but I would require a status info front of the shader about the tests were made with it -> e.g. somebody just picked it in a forum, or use it for years in AAA games.
