The automated scripts that check the items, bots and a heap of other stuff for the reviews and listings have all been re-written. To be honest, the old ones were a bit of a quick hack job that "did the job", but they had errors and did miss a number of things.

Anyway, the new scripts have been run over all the listed maps now. The Overview section should now be a lot more accurate and have nothing missing.

That's all. Just a general information post.

Cool! Is there a way to bulk download the metadata of the maps? (date, votes, comments, map type, etc) It would be interesting to have a section on the site to visualise them in detail. I can help setting up the analysis and code (in R software), which could be implemented on the site and run once in a while by you or perhaps automated altogether.

I'm currently working a few different things, but will add this to the todo / wish list.

By comments, do you mean the number of comments or the comments text?

Same with the votes, do you mean number of and average or individual votes?

I mean number of comments (to explore for instance level of activity over time), as well as number and average votes. So many things can be visualised. For a start, maps over time. Also, rankings can be produced of maps with highest daily average downloads. The more the better I would say.
Anyway, whenever you have the time. No rush!
