A while ago, an issue was raised regarding what to do with 'dead or permanently' in-active mods listed in the database which distract from the many 'active' mods by taking attention they deserve.

Well, rejoice because a solution has just been implemented! The way it works, is if a mods profile has little content, or is just not maintained it shall be marked in-active. However, before you panic if your mods webpage is active and development is still undertaken don't worry your mod won't be marked as in-active.

Should your mod be marked as in-active it will 'essentially' be hidden from everyone. I.e. (unless you directly type in it's ID it wont be shown in the database). That way legitimate mods that people have expended much effort in creating, will get the attention that these mods once unjustifiably took. If your mod ever gets such a status, you shall be alerted, and if you can demonstrate that it is still active, it shall be once again publically shown for all to view!

The following URLs demonstrate this system in action, and show prior discussion on the topic!

if you have any complaints, concerns.. worries please raise them! Rest assured that this system will be fairly used, and only mods that demonstrate little effort / attention will be marked in-active.

I believe it will benefit everyone, so enjoy!

if you see a modification you believe is 'in-active' please get in touch! It shall be reviewed and marked appropiatly..

It is sad that 95% of mods never make it.. but that is reality and hence modDB must clean up such mods, to ensure those mods having effort put in get their just rewards :D
