    actually i have a suggestion myself, i'll note it here before i forget:
    while browsing a category it'd be nice if we could search the category.


    damn it the feature is already there [​IMG] at the bottom of the file list

    When Costello talks to himself, we lose all hope.

    I've coded the site myself, and I'd forgotten about the feature [​IMG]

    I'd change the report file action to a form instead of a pop up dialog box.

    That's old age kicking in early.

    My suggestion...

    Move Custom Firmware Plugins from Firmware Related to Homebrew and rename to "Plugins" to fit more flush with the other categories in Homebrew.

    Why? Plugins are homebrew not firmware related while some plugins only work on a specific firmware many work on all firmwares so I can't see much relation between firmware and plugins.

    EDIT: Bug after uploading new file.

    or what?!?!?

    Allow unregistered users to rate files.

    Files almost never get ratings because they require you to be registered and logged in, you're getting hundreds, maybe thousands of downloads, but no ratings here.

    good point, I'll work on that [​IMG]

    edit: well i've been thinking, and i don't think it's such a good idea?
    if we allow guests to vote, there isn't really any way to prevent users from voting multiple times
    the only way you could do is--
    1) saving the list of voted files in the cookies, but then all you'd have to do is clear the cookies then vote again
    2) remembering the IP addresses that voted, but then in the UK a lot of people have a shared IP address (public proxy, used by NTL/virgin and others), and besides its easy to get another IP.
    so all in all it would result in invalid votes IMO. if you have a better idea, let me know.

    Newgrounds seems to have an effective way of only allowing one vote per day, working by IP address.
    Unless somebody is really committed to falsify a voted score, I don't think there's going to be a problem, and the once a day thing makes it more likely for people with shared IPs to be able to vote.

    Add the option to negate terms from the search.

    For example if I search for "arc" I get all sorts of luminous arc saves, so I want to search for "arc -luminous" to have it not return anything with "luminous" in it.

    +1 for something like this - there's been many times I've wanted to look something up & got results for something else, so a way to tell it NOT to list certain results would be helpful

    Yay reviving dead topic for my own needs!

    Anyways, earlier I was on filetrip (because ndsthemes.com is FINALLY up again :/) and I was thinking of checking to make sure all of my themes were moved to filetrip. While doing this, I thought how much easier it would have been if my older uploads were also organized like how the personal ones are (folders, I'm talking about the folders).

    On that note, subfolders in folders would be nice as well.

    you want to be able to organize your filetrip uploads into a virtual directory structure so it is easier for you to sort through your uploads?

    Loving the new look.

    Can we auto expand the old/alt versions part though. I quite often left source code which is otherwise very hard to come by, alt versions with different bugs/functionality (we have all moved in homebrew/open source for long enough here that I probably do not have to say much more) and generally made use of the functionality in that regard.

    I can go back and link things up for the really important stuff but even an auto expand would basically sort it, I see the scroll stuff is still there so it should not even break that.
