Riven changed that to give much exposure to new games and to avoid chatty threads to become too much visible. I'm not convinced by the efficiency of his choice, almost nobody really sees that I post some updates, my game appears in the 8th or 9th pages, someone spending a very little time on several games will get a bigger exposure than someone spending a lot of time on a single project. There is no perfect solution anyway.
Wah...? Riven you can't be serious right? If new projects should get Attention then I would make a sub forum for new projects which will be there for a week or a month and moved to the normal show case after this. I always wondered WHY there are noe updates to the games I follow here :/ (I don't often write something for games I like)
