Option to list deprecated mods

Post by MicFac » Fri Jul 13, 2018 4:30 pm

in the latest Friday Facts at https://factorio.com/blog/post/fff-250 it says that deprecated mods will be hidden from public searches to keep people ffrom finding outdated mods.
I suggest a feature to make deprecated mods visible in case one is purposefully searching for a discontinued mod. This could go well along with other search options like search for specific versions for example.

Deprecated mods are only hidden from the in-game search, and show up normally in mod portal searches, with a large [DEPRECATED] next to the name.

The in-game will search for mods compatible with the game version you're currently using. If that is what you meant?
I guess it wouldn't hurt to be able to filter mods searches by game version on the web too.
