How can we improve game mods and CurseForge?

Provide a way to find new projects on CurseForge

It would be very useful to have a reliable way of finding new mods on CurseForge. There is the ability to sort by the project creation date, however this is not the same as a project being new, and has many issues that can harm the discoverability of new projects.

To give an example, many mod authors will create the CurseForge project page days/weeks/months before they upload a new file. The reasoning from this can vary but it's often because they want to reserve the slug ID, or an issue came up in development which has delayed release. Another possible cause for this is the project being held up in moderation. When the project is finally approved, it will show up based on when it was created and not when it was approved, allowing new entries to show up lower in the order when sorting by date created.

Because of this, there is not a reliable way to find projects that are actually now to CurseForge.

    Maybe a "new to game version" would be a nice search function that would also cover the problem with new Projects

    I agree, maybe we should combine this idea with a few search methods. Most downloaded today, most viewed, most recently updated, etc. Though a simple solution would be to base the release date on the first file uploaded.
