Ok, so, you know how when you search for something, you can click the buttons like Name, Release Date, Popularity and Rating, and then it sorts them into those categories? Well, I was wondering if maybe when you click release date, all the TBD games/mods do not come up first,they should be on the bottom because there is over 100 pages of TBD, and the majority are actually dead. It should start with upcoming games/mods that have a release date set, and then go to ones already released, with TBD coming last.

EDIT: Just realized this should be in suggestions, sorry for that.

Theoretically, games with a TBD release date are more recent than the ones that have a release date set so it makes sense why it's shown like that, but practically you have a good point and I agree with you.

Yeah i understand why, but it shouldn't be that way.

Its based on when that project was last updated, so the ones up the top are the ones in active development with new materials added to the profiles.

When I click on it, the first thing that pops up is a game that hasn't been updated in a year, below that, 10 months, and below that, 1 year again.

Edit: I'm talking about when you click "Release Date". Not just when you click Games or Mods or whatever.

Yes, that is exactly what i'm talking about ( except I use Moddb ) I'm just saying, when I look through games or mods, and click release date to sort it, i'd like to see newly released stuff first, not endless pages of TBD.

Hmm that might be a bug but you need to remember unless the developer actually sets their game as a release date within their game profile (most normally forget or a game that has updated wont change that date) so it could just be that instead.

...What? xD All i'm saying is that when I click the button "Release Date" while on the "Games" or "Mods" pages, or even any other page like Engines, Addons, whatever, I would like it to sort them by having all the games/mods/addons with a set release date first ( so like if it says its coming 2014 or something ), then go down in order of release date, and have all the TBD games at the bottom. Otherwise the Release Date button is pretty much useless cause you got around 100+ pages of TBD before you even see any with a release date. It's quicker to start from the bottom with the games that were released 15+ years ago and work your way backwards just to get to the recently released/upcoming games.
