Please add something like updates notification - we have information what we had downloaded something so we can store information when it was, then when I enter Lex I could get info if something was updated (from my downloaded "files" list).
Just check "if update_datetime > download_datetime", simple link with 'new updates' would be sufficient (or similar).

Thanks

That's a cool idea, I'll see if I can get it to work tomorrow. Either way, it'll be an optional feature (turned off by default), as querying the downloadtrack (over 15 million entries in total I think) every time a user logs in might get a bit server intensive if it's on by default.

Doesn't the download history tell you if you have the latest version already?

Will your various security features include checking in the file is locked before allowing the download? I thought it wouldn't work but changing the parameter in the URL (lotGET to lotDOWNLOAD) allows you to download the file seemingly without checking if the file is locked or not. A fix for this would be as very easy. Equivalent to checking if the user is logged in.

Try it yourself: http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=2135

You may already know about this, but I thought I would notify you regardless. :-[

The visitor number on the front page is missing

it would be good if it could detect that you're logged in and skip the login page, or remove all that gubins and just have drop-down forms for login/registering....

Yup, that exploit was fixed.

The missing visitor number thingy will be removed once the update is pushed to the public LEX. You can already skip the login if you're logged in by going directly to

yes and its useless, it doesn't tell that there IS an update, it just spam 'some' dates, and you have to analyse it yourself, I would rather spend that time to play SC rather than compare 30 pages of 50 (?) dates manually.

Comment system... could uploader be a god in his own corner (uploads)?
Some comments are just spam and I would like to delete them (report to 'staff' vs delete by uploader), I should be able to edit my own comments (as an uploader).

Yes, I know that this features could be abused by uploaders (would it? I don't think so...), new field in db table would do the trick (show only comments.visible == 1), so if any complain would be made, staff could be able to check if complain is valid or not (and act accordingly).

An info 'there are new comments' would be great - uploaders would know if there is an comment to respond (if needed) without checking every entry that they had uploaded.

This may seen that I want something mayor and I have only ONE upload so... but I'm not the only uploader ;)

There is a red or green box beside the lot name. Shows if the lot is the latest version or not.


Casper, would it be simple enough to do a sort option allowing you to only show those out of date?

overall it looks pretty well covered for possible & proposed improvements...  :thumbsup:

something I'd like to see a 'simple rating system' of 'thumbs up' for a given item... don't know if this is or can be relevant for the LEX  ??? or better used for the forums...

make sure for the final look, everything is clear, simple, legible, and no too boring either  :P   :) ... its a 'no-brainer' too easily over looked... THX for updating this  :satisfied:

For time we can only upload .zip, is it complex to add .rar?

As zip files are common to all systems this is regarded as the standard for compression of files. There will be no changes to this and .rar files will not be allowed on the LEX.

It wouldn't be very hard to do, no, but, like Barby said allowing .rar files to be uploaded creates a whole new difficulty in installing for the people who end up downloading the files, as some operating systems cannot decompress rar's natively (and would require seperate applications for it (WinRar, 7Zip, etc.) which would be quite problematic to support. Zip-files on the other hand, are generally supported by every OS and have been a "standard" in the SC4 community for a very long time now.
