Hi,

how about to add an overview like you already have for New Item on the Frontpage also for last Updated Items. So all items that are older but getting an (feature) update will have another chance to be displayed at the fontpage. I think of this especially for Codecanyon and Themeforest where Scripts and Themes often get updates with new features for them.

Would be glad if you consider this. Regards, Danica

My one concern with that feature (which would be pretty cool) is that developers might try to game the system a bit by publishing micro-updates to products so that they can continuously be on or near the front page.

From personal experience, even if the vast majority of devs don’t do it, there will always be a small number who will go to great lengths to make their stuff seen, legit or not.

Otherwise, I think it would be a great feature on the front page since it would be rewarding for publishers to continue to make improvements to the products.

This was debated in the past, and it’s not a viable solution. This is way too easy to abuse.

I think you can avoid abuse if you want. Make rules, e.g. only new feature added is valid and the reviewer must allow the publish on frontpage. No automated system but human control and I think you can minimize abuse. I really think there are more positive value (because of more sales) than negative abuse.

Uhm, how can a moderator control if an update is really a new feature? He/She should verify the software before and after the update, can you imagine how much time it need this process? And what about videos and audio? They don’t even have “features”.

Yeah whilst it would be nice for older products to get a bit more showcasing that are updated frequently, I can’t see a way which would A) be efficient for reviewers to add to the list (manually checking for new features would take forever) B) stop authors spamming updates to the system to get on the frontpage.
