Hey ive opened this thread so all you mappers can tell us if you have finished any new maps.
If you guys could give the map name, a screenshot and what the idea is it would be great then we would all know if you have made a new map and whether it's the kind of map we would like to download.
This option is already available...
Its called Sof2files.com
In SoF2files.com it does show new maps but they remain on the new files list only for a while and then It's annoying looking for the file you want through all them menus.
If it's on here then I can just enter the name into SoF2files.com's search and get it with out looking at tall the maps descriptions.
Have you bothered to suggest this to him? I think that its a good idea. I know that he is working on options for members, but I dont know exacly what options they will be.
I think that these weapon skins should be taken off the main page, there probably the least downloaded files (well in relation to people I have talked to.) and another thing although on the main page it gives me a list of all the new files, what would be a welcome change would be a file rating next to the file so we know whether it is a good map or whatever, then I wouldn't have to always click on the file name look at the description, then if I dont like it, go back choose another from the huge list, etc. etc.
One final thing, sof2files.com is a blessing though, without it I dunno where I'd be. :agreed:
This file rating who would do that ??
A good file for me could be a rubbish file for you, this is why there is an overall user rating system !!
Do you see what i mean ?
How about then that everytime you look at a file, you rate it, then the overall ratings can be viewed?
The other way you could do it is, recomend a good file to become file of the day/week? then ppl can download it from there, it would be upto the community to vote it as such?
At the moment we have File of the Week and SoF2 Featured Files, there could be a slot for Most voted "Skin" "Map" "Mod" etc etc? if a file is there then its worth getting?
I have asked Pro-filer to cast his eyes over this to see if there is a way forward with this idea :p

It´s all in the pipeline, a lot of stuff is, just a matter of time. I still need a superb php coder to help me out, I don´t have the time to do it all myself and neither does phenix. We'll also have filemail, like you get an email daily, weekly, monthly or whatever with an overview of all the new files by category.

It's good that these ideas will be created, bet it will be hard to get these changes to work, I admin and manage a few sites and it's good enough but I know forums are a huge job to change, lot's of coding involved, I couldnt even imagine how hard it must be.
the idea for file of the week categories, the most downloaded file that is in operation at the moment at SoFfiles is ok but it's always the patch and dam weapon skins, the categories would be ace, I certainly recommend a most downloaded map of the week section, it would be my favourite section on the site.
