Hide File Download Option(s)

An Idea

Idea to hide older version

Pardon the weird title, I wasn't sure if it 'Option Download(s)' or 'Download Option(s)' or something else.

Instead of deleting, or still showing an older, and/or buggy version to be downloaded, why not add a middle option? Hide it.

Pros:

  • Allow users to be directed to download that latest version, or less-buggy version
  • Allow submitter to be ready to fall back if the newer version is buggy or flawed
  • Allow submitter to 'archive' their final work

Cons:

  • Good Game if submitter goes AWOL (or banned) for a very long time, you won't be able to download the previous version if the newest version is buggy.
  • Decrease server storage capacity, if there are multiple version files to be kept (especially very large mod/files(s)

    To counter the con about server storage capacity the hidden files could be limited to 1 or 2.
