Edited Projects Need a Spot on the Front Page

I'd like to see a list of Edited projects on the front page of the vault, displayed like New Projects.  This would help people update the downloads they have without having to search for the specific download wondering if there is/is not an update for it.

Feedback?

Do you really think it needs to be on the front page? It's pretty busy already... where would we put it?

By default the Projects page (in the top menu) sorts projects in order of most recently modified first, so if you do an NwN1 search for modules, the default is:

Default project search

 

Note that each of the column headers (Title, Author, Posted and Updated) are sort links. Clicking on Author will sort the results by Author name, Title by title, etc.

Oh.  I'm still unfamiliar with the site's mechanics.  I didn't even know that existed.

But in the theme of what I suggested, maybe a link to a "Recently Updated" list on a page?

Oh, I'm not discounting the notion! I'd rather like to see handily what's hot/active...

I'm just not too sure how to shoe-horn it into the front page.

By all means brainstorm to your heart's content :-)

Anyway, this site is by and for the community, not one old wizard :-P It will always be a WIP, but that doesn't mean *every* bell and whistle on the front page...

I think that current notification/new stuff system is alright. No need to add updated projects on a front page.

 

Actually, I think that the projects shouldnt be promoted on a first page the way they are. At least if the "Recent Content" button is useable even without signing in (which I havent checked yet).

Instead there could be advertisement for PWs etc. just like at old vault, think those projects needs it more.
