When I'm adding files, I feel that I'm using the miscellaneous sub-category too often. This could potentially make searching hard for members and guests who are looking for files. So what do you think: keep the current system or have a category overhaul?

why not make a poll on this? I think it would be more effective than leaving comments here. smile

That was my instinct too, but I thought you guys would get bored if we put too many 'site suggestion' polls and too few Elder Scrolls related ones. Plus, this gives a chance for more specific responses. smile.

For the sake of organisation, an overhaul would be needed. Yet I don't think it is too much of an urgently needed feature. But if you think it should be done Legion, I'm behind you all the way.

I think that instead of using the "miscelaneous" category, a few new ones should be added, and sometimes mods should be in more than one place, because they fit into multiple categories, it seems that if something fits into more than 1 category it is made a "huge mod" or a "miscelaneous" mod.

You dont have to do an overhaul. Just move all miscellaneous things to their right place. It is many things that would fit in other places. And maybe create 1 or 2 new folders. If I should be honest i like it in this way.

When the players send us the files, they can tell us which category they think it should go in to.

What about 'Small Mods', 'Fun Mods', "beta Mods (for people to help out and choose which ones they want to test)' ,

or what about a system where submitters can include a list of tags (no limit) that they think should be attatched to their mod, to make it easier for people to search for mods

As I'm sure you are aware, we are a part of the greater filefront network which spans dozens and dozens of sites. In order for us to change stuff like that, we'd have to change it for all the sites. A decision like that would require us to apply to the very heads of the filefront hierarchy, who 98% of the time reject stuff like this for various reasons.

I'll do my best, but even if we are successful it will probably be a slow process of staff forum debates.

I don't think and overhall is nesisarry if u just added 1 or 2 more folders to help pl search, the current system works well and to be honest i havn't even looked in the misc. section for a few months so it might be worth it to make a few new folders just to get the mods out to the public. smile

The filefront network managers didn't accept it. A lot of the site managers were in favour, but ultimately it was rejected as:

They want to get other things done before they even think about it.

It could allow members to post comments against the rules quickly and then edit them so the staff members don't find out. This is particularly relevant for illegal links.

You see, when we edit comments, we are redirected to the 'OPS', the hub where we post files, news and generally run the site. A member controlled system would force access to the OPS, or the construction of a whole other method of comment editing.
