    Yes, it does. But again, that's not the point.

    It was not the original question asked in this thread, but it was a question raised in this thread.

    My gripe about allowing microsoft office files, and not openoffice files is...
    openoffice is just as good as office. There are some differences, but all in all, they are very comparable.
    However, for the price of a legitimate office license, I could buy a lower end PC or a netbook. Openoffice is free..
    (this is taken from a windows perspective, as I run linux.. office runs poorly under wine so it is even more of a no-brainer for me)

    We will ask Arcana... if we can add file types, he is the only one that can do it. I don't think we have ever added a file type, though.

    I would prefer to see PDF.

    I do not have openoffice and i'd rather not have to install yet another program that I might use once every 6 months at most.

    (and I would rather not get into a discussion of which programs are better and why people should or should not use specific programs. Just casting my vote for "I would rather see PDF's than anything else.")

    PDF is already supported and can be attached to a post.

    I'm aware of that, I'm responding to the people who want to upload openoffice files.

    Sorry if I wasn't more clear.

    Last year around this time we had a SketchUp fad going so Arcana added the .skp files.
