Did this help at all?

Take a look at the wiki again: http://wiki.armagetronad.net/index.php? ... _Beginners

One thing to keep in mind is try not to use spaces, underscores, dots, or dashes in the name tag. Stay alphanumeric whenever possible.

Not really, included is reserved for stuff that comes with the game when you install it.

Yeah, you can do that or you can skip the included or automatic part (It could perfectly be Armagetronad/resource/author/category/etc..)
