In the last few days I have been doing some preliminary work on 1.23.
My first priority is improvement of the Community Content. There are two problems with it.
First, there is no way for you to rate the content. It means that any interesting world (and there are many) gets quickly lost in a deluge of low quality 5-minute creations. This is horrible waste, and I apologize to all the people who have spent days or weeks making their adventures only to have them forgotten under a pile of fluff.
Second, the issue of inappropriate content. Some people find it amusing to submit worlds containing nasty things. We have lots of very young users, and so I spend inordinate amounts of time manually filtering the list (big thanks to everyone who sent me a report of inappropriate content – you’re of great help!). At the moment, I immediately delete such content and the user responsible gets banned from further publishing. But manual filtering is not quick enough and too time consuming.
To solve both of these issues I’m working on a user feedback system which hopefully will solve both problems.
The work is in early stages so I don’t want to reveal any details yet. You’ll hear more in the future.
