Graphics section is supposed to show a variety of mods. Not mods from the same user over and over and what’s messier is that most of those mods are the less used in the previous versions of AoE2.
I am pretty sure you guys have a great team to render the main sections of the mods center more appealing to us by eliminating duplicate mods, not allowing the same user to appear more than twice as well taking into consideration the mod popularity factor.
We’ll take a look at putting some restrictions on titles to avoid some of the non-alpha characters causing issues with sorting.
To previous points on what’s displayed, keep in mind you can also sort by other columns to view things like most liked or most downloaded or search for a specific keyword or creator. Also, while these are by the same author, they don’t appear to be duplicates.
It should now default to sorting by most popular. I also changed it so when sorting by name it will ignore the extra non-alpha characters. Hopefully this will provide a better experience. Thanks for bringing this up! We’ll continue to evaluate if further tweaks could be useful as well.
I have to add, that Guaymallen did nothing wrong. IMO it is okay to add author name to mod names in order to differentiate them from other similar mods.
Also putting this kind of info into titles as prefix surrounded by square brackets is standard practice in many places.
It was a mod sorting issue, not issue about Guaymallen.
Indeed he did nothing and nobody put the blame on him in post. A quick tip though… Those square brackets ruin the readability experience. If I were him I would instantly remove them and work on beautifying those titles to encourage the consumption of my mods.
