Mod ordering in author-page?

Post by someone1337 »

If I did not miss anything really obvious I think mods are ordered by download count if you click on your modder-page...

But why is this one: https://mods.factorio.com/mod/some-iconlessfish sorted diffrently?

-> https://mods.factorio.com/user/someone1337

By decreasing update date/time ?

My page begs to differ. Mod with oldest update is at top (quite annoying), because it has most downloads:

Well, it's definitely neither downloads nor time, see my page: https://mods.factorio.com/user/bilka - Landfill Converter has no business being so high up in the list both by time updated and by downloads.
I'm an admin over at https://wiki.factorio.com. Feel free to contact me if there's anything wrong (or right) with it.

All the mods play rock/paper/scissors, and the winner gets on top :mrgreen:

Or it's the famous "secret sauce":

From keeping an eye on my own mod page, it really seems like they're SUPPOSED to be ordered by descending downloads. When I released a new one and it surpassed others in download count it went up the list.

The top three however seem to be stuck in their position - I thought they were my oldest three, but looking through my files that might not be the case. Can't tell since the site doesn't give exact dates. Top one is definitely the oldest though.
