Separate pages for mods and requests

An Idea

Something that needs addressing

Okay so I’m probably not the only one who’s wanted to say this for a while now, but it doesn’t seem anyone else will so here it goes. 

Gamebanana devs/managers, can we please have a separate page for requests and questions and not have them clog up the page? Every single time a real mod gets uploaded for SADX and SA2, it gets shoved down within a day or two because of requests and questions. It’s not allowing proper mods to shine as they should, and as a result of this, we’re relying on YouTube content creators’ videos on the mods to provide it the publicity it’d normally get on Gamebanana. Furthermore, this is what has discouraged folks from publishing their mods here. People also don’t even know about types of mods existing for these games too because our mods get pushed down (like level ports for SADX and SA2 for example). 

Here’s the best example. Individuals like this.
Requesting the least imaginative mods every time a mod gets released that actually makes a difference to the game (I’m not saying all requests are as bad as this. I’m just using this dude as an example as they request random stuff all the time). For us modders who create genuine content for the game, it’s highly annoying see our mods get pushed down right to the bottom days after they release because of questions and requests. Which brings me to my main point. Make the questions and requests have their own section on the game’s page. 
Keep the main page filled with the mods. Queries on another. 

The way this could work is by having two toggles on the main page. Mods. Requests. 
This way, everyone will be able to see the mods available for the games instead of seeing requests, since that seems to make up most of SA2’s mod page (I don’t know if this is the case with other games’ mod pages).

Thank you. 

Lads and lasses, place your thoughts down below!

    Let me add a few missed things:

    There are others non-mods like Threads, Blogs, News, Polls, Tutorials & maybe (Scripts & Game Files). they may also cause the mods to be pushed down.

    So your mod depends on you, if its good enough will be featured not just on the game front page but on GB main page as well, it could stay there for several days, this shows how competent you are.

    As a conclusion, keeping the non-featured subs always on top is impossible especially on active games, and it's up to the user if he want to scroll down to see more or choose sub-category that lead him to whatever he looks for.

    There is a possible solution if the game page separated by 3 major cat (Mods / Dev / Social). But this makes the page heavy & slower to load up (it will take longer time than usual).
