Mods going to the top of the download section when updated.

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I've just gone through all of my mods to update the terms, and noticed that they are all on the first page of the downloads section. I think this is a little unfair to the people who have just uploaded their skins, and seeing as the amount of textures that are uploaded each day is pretty high, a spot on the front page is very valuable so people actually see your texture.

What i'm suggesting is, that mods only get a spot on the front page if a new version has been uploaded, not just an edit to the information.

I hope that this is something that is considered, I think it could also remove the possibility to take advantage of the system by just changing a small part of the description (adding a full stop for example) to get back to the front page.

Thanks,
SkillfulCorpse

We're aware and we're working on a solution.

Or you make sure everything is as its supposed to be so you don't have to update ;)

Jokes aside. I see where you are coming from, since people can abuse it just to get back to the front page as you said.

Maybe make it that you get back to the front page if you update the file? Since alot of times someone might forget credits or something and then its on the front page again just becuse someone forgot credits.

Yeah I noticed this myself. It's actually made me hesitant to update my files over small and simple things as I don't want my file pushed to the top again for no good reason.

Same, but I had too seeing as it was pretty important.

The reason I was updating it was; there is a lot of new Australian clans out, and I don't want them using my skins and distributing them themselves. It wasn't really an issue when I first uploaded them. And yeah, it will stop any abuse of the system too.
