I logged in this morning to Star Wars Battlefront Files and noticed that Clone Wars Geonosis and Acid World of Vjun are maps of the weeks! I don't find anything wrong with these maps, in fact, they were great maps in their time. But they are a year and several months old! Could you guys please pick some files that are a bit more recent to be files of the weeks? I personally think the files of the weeks should be the top downloaded mods in the recent couple of weeks or so. Thanks for the time, Xavious

That is how we work. I have a look at the download statistics, and whatever has been downloaded the most gets to be in the Featured Files and FOTW. If by the following week the download stats are nearly the same, then I pick some of the older files.

Also, as this isn't really orientated around Battlefront 2 as a game, I'm moving this to rants and raves.

:moved:

I think you should pick some more recent files. As in, within two months old or so. Just don't pick the files that are a year old. Also, concerning the Picture of the Day issue: I think there should be more funny pics. By all means, keep putting up glamour shots, but only every so often or so. SWBFFiles got along just fine with mostly funny pictures. Additionally, I have never seen anyone complain that they don't like funny pictures, or that they would rather have more glamour shots.

Xavious;3758082I think you should pick some more recent files.[/quote] I do, but when they've been up for FOTW before, there isn't really much point. I give the FOTW place to a file that is in the top ten downloads for that week. I don't automatically give it to the newer files.

Xavious;3758082As in, within two months old or so. Just don't pick the files that are a year old.[/quote] Why not? This way, they're getting their place in the spotlight.

Xavious;3758082 Also, concerning the Picture of the Day issue:[/quote] There is no issue regarding the PotD's. It is only the members that are causing the issue. I validate what is in the queue. I cannot do anything else about that. If the picture that I validate isn't "funny", then, plainly, it's tough luck.

Xavious;3758082 I think there should be more funny pics.

Submit some then. I can't validate what I do not have.

I do.

I've been a member of the FileFront Network for years. I have seen issues regarding PotD's on each Network Site. As I said, I can't validate what I don't have (funny pictures).

[quote=Xavious;3758082]Additionally, I have never seen anyone complain that they don't like funny pictures, or that they would rather have more glamour shots.

Oh, I have. Each and every person that visits SWBF Files (or any FN site for that) has an unique opinion on what they would class a 'good' PotD.

Problem is, they've had their chance "in the spotlight" when they came out.

That doesn't mean they can't now.

Stop complaining! Be glad that the filefront managers haven't completely disbaned you for speaking against them! Jk... but I think it's a good idea to put up old maps. I mean who's going to say, "hey I want to play a map of Vjun!". Once you see it, the map looks interesting, but most people don't even know what Vjun is.
