[One Line Suggestions]

Postby eradicator » Tue Jul 10, 2018 4:51 pm

Preface:
I only have a small suggestion, so making a whole new thread for it seems overkill. With more active work being done on the portal (yay!) wouldn't it be prudent to introduce an active/implemented/rejected system like in the API requests forum? Readability of this forum is slowly decreasing as it becomes a mix of bug reports, feature requests, implemented suggestions and general discussion. For the moment i'll put anything i notice here and hopefully remember to [ strike ]out things that are implemented (other people are welcome to join, and i don't mind if the implementing dev does the [ strike ]'ing).

_____
One Line Suggestions:

  • Ability to change the internal mod name (time limited? license-like requests?) / Set a forward to a successor mod.
  • Remove gravatar as nobody uses it. Allow uploading custom avatar instead, or use forum avatar.
  • Automatically show the changelog from the most recent mod.zip in a seperate tab.

Link Collection (in no particular order, first thread i found):

Partially implemented
  • Seperate the "thumbnail" from the images bar. Enlarging it is not useful, and it is often the only picture a mod has. Partial ☆
  • Moderating (delete/rename) of discussions. Becaues it's impossible to mark bug reports as fixed. Partial ☆
Already implemented

Stars collected: ★★★★★☆☆

Sort by game version, current experimental by default.

Done:

  • The gallery now only shows up if two or more pictures are present. I might separate the thumbnail completely in the future.
  • Threads can now be locked or trashed.
  • Searches can now be filtered by version.
  • Dependency names now show up in full.

I am unreasonably excited that this happened so quickly. Thanks!

No 0.17 category tag? There's already a mod that would need that :P

On this topic, I'm not sure the version filter is working correctly. No results are returned for https://mods.factorio.com/query/warehou ... rsion=0.16, though there are multiple versions of Warehousing available for 0.16.

Testing...
  • × Version tags return zero results if combined with any other /query.
  • ✔ Dependency
  • ✔ Gallery
  • ✔ Lock/Trashing (Renaming to add a [Solved] tag might still be nice. Makes the discussions/mod look active as opposed to deleting them all and leaving an empty page. ;)
OP updated accordingly.
