Implement "Sort By Updated" on UserFiles

Recommended Posts

The ED User Files (https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/files/) has a Sort By feature that has Newest, Oldest, By Rating, and By Downloads. Because of the recent changes that were a result of this thread (https://forums.eagle.ru/topic/263114-abuse-of-user-download-page-update-feature/?do=findComment&comment=4581843), legitimately updated mods by default get no visibility via the ED User Files site. For example, if someone updated their mod to fix a critical bug, they will have to "advertise" on the forum, other sites, or other platforms to let people know that it was updated.

In the current implementation of the site the mods are more or less listed by approval date. If you do nothing but click "Filter", the mods will be listed by updated date. This new "feature" is not clear. I think that adding the "Updated" to the "Sort By" dropdown will help clear things up. I also believe that the "Sort By Updated" should be the default mode, but there are both reasons for and against that.
