Created page with basic section sorting. Going to try to organize the page better with tables. If anyone has good idea for table-fields to include, scream out! --Duck Hunt-Pr0 (talk) 19:31, 2 December 2016 (UTC)

1 Axis-buttons = Buttons or axis?

Example: RT and LT buttons on Xbox controllers, are in fact called axis'..They are 1-axis analog (buttons), like a pedal would be. But in a table, should they be attributed as both, or just either one of those? Any thoughts? --Duck Hunt-Pr0 (talk) 21:37, 2 December 2016 (UTC)

In general I think it's a good idea to choose the most "correct" way to label things. So if it's more correct to label the RT and LT buttons as axis then thats what i vote for. Attributing them as both axis and buttons sounds like it can be confusing. --Oniondreams (talk) 20:46, 5 december 2016 (UTC)

What devices to add?

Personally, i would suggest only add devices that are more or less known to be working flawlessly, out-of-the box. --Duck Hunt-Pr0 (talk) 23:48, 2 December 2016 (UTC)

In general I think that is a quite good idea. If there are gadgets that does require a bit more tinkering I think they can be included aswell as long as they are clearly labeled in some way as requiring tinkering. Also instructions for how to get them to work should of course be provided as well. --Oniondreams (talk) 20:36, 5 december 2016 (UTC)
