This was Virgil's opinion on a similar topic
Sorting.... I might add some sorting back in. I may start by adding some more 'fliters' at the top, though (top 10 lists or something). Both sorting and top 10 are a little tricky in that they can promote 'interesting' behavior. For instance, sorting by rank encourages map makers to vote 5 for their own maps and 1 for everybody else (yes, people do this). Sorting by number of comments, encourages people to post meaningless comments. Etc...
None of these things are really fatal or even that big of a deal, they are just small things that can often produce results different than originally expected.
In any case, I'll probably start adding some of these things back in and see how it works out.
I would have to agree with Virgil's statement, and,
I believe that the "sort by map maker" option is
However, I believe that it should be changed so that
map authors have to submit a certain amount of maps
to get on that list, because as we have it now,
he list is long and makes it difficult to find the map
authors you want.
Most of the list length is filled with authors who only
submitted 1 map.
The only filter I would want to see, is a list of authors
in order of how many maps they have submitted. (of
course SPIFFEN would be on top).
