A few days ago I migrated the entire community content to a new server, specially prepared for 1.23 launch. The new server has a lot of new features, including download counts, ratings and offensive content reporting.
You cannot make use of most of these yet, because 1.22 does not have the necessary UI. But you should be able to see the download counts and publish dates:
These are real numbers calculated by the new server. I would say they are quite impressive. 45000 downloads in a few days?
Once 1.23 is out you’ll be able to rate the content – that should make it even better.
I am still bogged down in the new electrics stuff, but my TODO list for 1.23 is getting shorter and shorter.
