I agree these special primitives would need some documentation, but I see that as a wiki entry, rather than as modification of specification! This is just a trick, not something essential.

What about http://www.ldraw.org/library/primref/ then?

Yup, should be there.

I see that 1-16chrd is already documented to exist in the primitives reference, but there is no special note describing why it should be used (and the fact that it is empty). Presumably, documentation for empty.dat and n-fering.dat should also be added.

On a somewhat related note, does the library need a 48/1-48chrd?

FYI, as far as I know, I no longer have the ability to edit those files. I used to, but there aren't any "edit" links any more (and probably haven't been for years).

You sum it up here and post it to Chris, or ask Chris to fix the privileges - it has probably to do with the server shift.

I don't think I'm the best person to describe things. To be clear, LDView's handling of this situation is basically a happy accident. I didn't intentionally program it to work this way. Someone else (I'm not sure who) discovered the behavior and decided to take advantage of it.

As for permissions, I don't see any links on the main ldraw.org site to sign in. So, presumably the editing of content on the site is (intentionally) hidden from normal site visitors.

To be honest I don't care who does the job ... you guys came up with it, now take it home.

You can do this guys! How about a commune effort, working together here in the forums.
