As you all know Mav is the last active voulenteer on http://starwarsbattlefront.filefront.com/ It must be stressful for him every time he updates all the mods, pictures, etc. There are thousands of mods taking up 57.72 GB worth of space. Maybe we should only backup the files which the community enjoys and have a good level of quality, that reduces the work significantly and makes the project appear smaller.

Star Wars Battlefront II
Files: 1061
Total Size: 44.17 GB

Star Wars Battlefront I
Files: 425
Total Size: 13.55 GB

Yes Mav is reliable and he does his best to keep the site updated, but he can't do it forever! At some point he is going to have to stop, resulting in the site's death. Only previous mods will be available and new mods will be harder to find without the proper site. Gametoast does an OK job sorting its mods and assets but there are a LOT of dead links, it's nothing compared to a dedicated mod storage site.

Maybe someone should create a new mod data base? We could make use of dropbox or media fire to store mods. I have nothing better to do, if someone would be willing to do mod reviews I think we might be able to accomplish this. There are some skilled artists on SWBF custom we could really make the site look nice. Due to lack of funds xD we might have to stick with a free site. I just have to look for one. I'll keep you guys up to date.

Mod Overview System
-Critics: Very brief but sophisticated overview of each mod.
-Mod reviews (Critic and User Reviews)
-Accurate rating system for critics
-Accurate rating system for players
-Download Count
-Nicer screenshot layout
-Gameplay Videos

Search System
-Everything is categorized correctly
-Assets: Skins > Models > Animations > Asset Packs >
-Maps: Maps > Map Packs > Conversions >
-Sides: Republic > Confederacy > Empire > Rebel Alliance > Other >
-Media: Audio > Video> Screensavers > Wallpaper > Other
-Utilities: Tools >

File Submission System
-When file is submitted the link is checked for viruses and check play-ability/usage.
-After file is accepted it is re-uploaded to one of the dropbox/media fire accounts that the admins will have access to. This ensures file safety and eliminates the problematic broken links.
-Once on the site critics and players can then review, rate and download the file.
-Screenshots are taken by the more artistic critics and uploaded.
-Videos are uploaded only if the creators agree that it can be used.

That sounds awefully....like a challange. I wonder who would have that kind of time? I mean, lol it sounds like it would have to be more than a few people to accomplish this.

Ok well I'd be willing to help out, I don't mind rating new mods or trying them out... I do it anyways with maps and side mods as it is...let me know if there is anything I can do, but keep in mind, I use a mac so I can't download exe. files
