    Hey, I have a few questions for the one who made the new search system. While I think it looks great so far, it's come to my attention that something went missing during the transition to the new system: it's no longer possible to search for projectiles, while these are quite often the hardest to find. I really miss that feature. So my questions are:
    Is this feature going to be reintroduced anytime soon?
    Why was it removed? Or was it just simply forgotten?
    Will I ever be able to search for projectiles again?
    Will I ever stop asking questions?
    Probably now, presumably not?

    Well if you want to search projectiles or missiles if i am right then if you search then click on 'more' then on 'Search Bundles and Resources' and look for a 'tags'-section. If you found it (easily found) then search there for 'SFX' and then you check 'missile'.

    Thank you. This is very helpful indeed. I feel like a total idiot for completely not noticing the tag while actively searching for it multiple times.

    Ah well, you wouldn't be the first to have problems with the new search. You are not an idiot because you cannot figure a technical thing out, the thing is ;-).

    What are the rules concerning Hive model download limitations? My Matrix Eater tool has become very useful to me because it quickly loads up Warcraft III models from the game data and presents them in a style similar to the World Editor. If I added a menu in the same place that would basically just hit the Hive's search thing with HTTP requests and parsed the results back into a display that let the user browse models from within the Matrix Eater, then download and start editing them, would this violate site rules?

    Obviously the Matrix Eater GUI would need to include Hive logos on that section and encourage users to give credit for models downloaded in this way.

    I thought of this because somebody in a discord channel I am a part of asked why so many new Wc3 models were being created from original Wc3 animations and not re-using community animations where permitted. Perhaps, does the download API include license tokens for whether modifying the model is permitted without direct permission (So this theoretical Matrix Eater utility could be coded only to download models for which users were allowed to make changes)?

    Get in touch with me on Discord. I think we can possibly come to some kind of agreement.

    I would like to suggest you to "divide" topics, themes, labs-overall to think way, due to 1.29. I can feel Warcraft 3 community definetily to be divided to 2 camps. So to prevent mess and misunderstanding, misdownloads etc. I mean overall to think up smth like that.

    When I start Scrolling up, inbox & alerts do not appear until I have reached the very top of the page.

    It is much better to make inbox/alerts show as soon as the user scrolls up, and hidden as soon as he/she scrolls down.

    Thanks!

    Well, you get a temporary pop-up when they get to you (live) down in the left corner of the screen.

    I can't find the proper words to explain it to you how much it doesn't matter.

    Other forums do it, and they are not should not be better than hive.

    Edit: also, what you do not find important could be the most important to someone else.

    Its just more neat and appealing that, don't we agree on this?

    Erit2:
    Imagine in World Editor you have to scroll all the way up (from your custom unit up to the human folder) to change the tab from units to abilities and that you won't be able to go to abilties directly from your custom unit. Would that be neat?

    Have you look to your right side of the screen when new notifications arrive? Unless that's not what you seek. Not all resolutions would benefit and from what I assume, Hive is trying to be mobile compatible as well, and this might cause unpleasant experiences there (less area to look content for the sake of alert bar).

    How is the activity here on the Hive?

    Hi, I haven't been around for a while

    Are you still having problems with reviews, and massive pending lists?

    Not that I'm offering to help, I would just like to be in the know

    well, in some other forums this happens on desktop version but not mobile version so...

    I guess hive is doing just fine.

    That means they are moderated within 2 weeks.
