    When I update my plugin on the website it goes to the bottom of the list - this is pretty annoying why is the list ordered by last updated ascending? That just means that plugins that haven't been updated in ages get the top positioning. It should either be ordered by last updated descending or by a trending download count or by a weighted rating or just alphabetical - effectively penalising people for updating their plugins makes no sense!

    Hi sporn - just noticed this post - I would have seen it sooner if it was in the Website forum, sorry about that!
    Good point! I am not sure why it was set to ascending, but I changed it to descending. Featured plugins will still display first, but then latest updates first.

    I was looking for any documentation or even a forum thread about your iSpy plugin, to skin it for aMPed - which is not easy since I don't have the equipment to use the plugin! Did I miss something somewhere?

    Yeah - I don't even have a webcam LOL
    Thanks for the link - you could add that to your MP website (repository) listing if you want - might get you some more feedback?
