Mod DB isn't usually a place for editorials; but some recent news going through the queue has, I feel, made this one necessary. We strive to provide you all with as much modding goodness as we can, but in order to do this we need quality content. It's up to you to provide that content. However;
Much as you may want to show off your unskinned MP5 render, we've seen it before. We want to see fresh and exciting things, not just another weapons model render. Get some in-game images in there. Interesting skins, concept art, you get the idea. Tell us what you've been up to, say a few words about what you've been doing in the last week...
Before you post something to the main page, think "Will other people who know nothing about my mod want to see this?" If you say "Yes" then carry on, chances are it will end up on the front page. If "Maybe", give it a go. It will either make it or it won't. If it's a definate "No", please don't put it up for the main page and keep it in mod profile. Authing, moving or deleting these things takes time.
Well, that's it from me. Have fun, keep modding, and lets see some more content!
