  1. The ranking system was disabled temporarily for performance reasons. The link embed preview image is taken from the first image in a thread that has big enough dimensions. I'm assuming you added the pride flags photo in the 2nd post to try and get it to change the preview image, but unfortunately it goes by upload date, not post date. I could remove the image from the post that has it, so it defaults to a different image for the preview if you really want.
  2. The default was changed in the Sims 4 categories due to various users abusing the recently updated order by making empty "updates" to bump their files to the top of the list. --- Also, as a side note. I'm going to experiment with adding reviews to files in the sims 4 category to see how it goes. I've usually been hesitant about enabling reviews on files as I fear some authors might take the ratings to seriously or that some less knowledgeable user giving giving bad reviews that are the result of their own error installing a mod. To hopefully curb some of that, I'm setting it so only accounts that aren't new can review. Will see how it goes. Interested in feedback on it as well (a review of reviews, if you will)
  3. Sure, readded the buttons. I don't have a way to easily add new fonts however.
  4. Totally understandable, I get where you're coming from. I know there are certain problem "spots" on the site that we haven't been great at addressing. I'm truly sorry if it ever feels like site staff or myself "doesn't care" about a problem, I assure you we do notice more than we let on. It's just a real difficult thing to find the delicate balance between being a free-wheeling/welcoming community, while also having to enforce a specific set of rules among millions of registered users while being consistent. And we're by no means perfect at that yet.
  5. If I could easily edit the forum software to no longer bump files from post edits without file updates, I would. I still think changing the sims categories to sort by "recently added" instead of "recently updated" would be the best solution. It would immediately destroy any reason for greedy people to keep bumping their files. Yes, you might lose out on seeing mods that have legitimately updated if all you do is look at the list of recently updated mods. But, if you cared about that mod being updated, than you should be following the file and getting a notification or seeing that the files discussions thread has new posts. Besides, you could still change the sort order on your own. Across all the "excessive bumping" reports we've gotten, it's mostly just felt not excessive enough to be problematic or bumping as the result of somebody making legit updates to their post that go unnoticed by the reporter. We've even had a fair number of excessive bumping reports made about files that made simple typo/formatting fixes.
  6. I don't think it's wise of me to share this, as it's honestly none of your damn business and I'd rather keep it private... But fuck it. I don't care. Since the subject of women on the site is currently being talked about. I will confess that I am, in fact, a trans woman. It's something I've known about myself since I was a teenager, but have only recently started being open about. I've been in the process of transitioning for 8 months or so now.
  7. The database table that tracks achievement progress was to big and slowing parts of the site down a lot. So I capped it to only track starting from the last few years rather than the entire history of the site.
  8. Makes more sense, I do know what plants crave.
  9. Thanks, but it's entirely undeserved. I've done literally nothing for non-adult mods beyond maintaining PapyrusUtil, a mod I didn't even make and just inherited the source code for. I'm proud of my contributions to adult modding. But, when it comes to non-adult mods, all I've really done is provide an alternative space to upload them and that is entirely just a byproduct of servicing my own interests. The praise for non-adult content here has little, if anything, to do with me and should entirely go to the authors of said mods.
  10. Your account was used to spam discord phishing links, resuling in a prompt ban. But, assuming you've properly regained access to your account, I've removed the ban and you should be able to rejoin now. Do try not to give away your password to hackers again.

  12. I am unpinning and locking this thread. Use the Request & Find categories instead. Request & Find - Skyrim: Special Edition
  13. Removing it was accidental when I disabled the new stuff I mentioned. It's fixed now.
  14. As I've said previously, the moderators can't be everywhere and we heavily rely on content being reported. It's a big forum and it's not surprising some things may have slipped through the cracks as a result. I could add a word filter for shota to send posts mentioning it to moderator approval which would absolutely help us catch and prevent more of it. However, this practice is exactly what angered you previously about censorship when one of your posts got automatically hidden and flagged for moderator approval because it had some filtered words we use to help bring moderator attention to situations. So there's apparently no winning here. Either we're horrible censors because we employ our best tools for catching questionable content quickly, or we're lazy do nothing moderators because something is never brought to our attention in user reports. In any case, I think this argument and situation has run it's course and it's time to just lock this thread and cool down.
  15. Disabled the changes for now due to some problems.
