    Recently I noticed that some resources can become invisible in the model section and in search results.

    However, one can still find them if he knows the creator and goes to 'all threads created' to find a direct link. These models are listed as 'This resource is awaiting update.'

    This happened to the battle realms models of strongwill. His glorious work cannot be found in the model section now.

    What does this mean? Is this a bug or is it supposed to be like this?

    It means that the model is on its way to approval, but strongwill needs to give it a bit more work.

    Ah, I see. The moderator sets the 'to be updated' status. I found some useful skins by HanBu from a year ago as well that are 'to be updated'.

    This is like hunting for hidden treasure. Is there any way to filter these 'to be updated' resources to search for them? For all I know some very good resources can be hidden from ages past like this. And if strongwill never updates his works they too will join the hidden reliquary that is the 'to be updated' section.

    The sad thing is is that there are really awful models that are approved and visible in the model section while there exists this very real possibility that strongwill's work will be forever stuck in the limbo of 'to be updated' if he doesn't do what the moderator told him. I am lucky since a saw his models when they were released but someone who didn't won't even suspect of their existence - even though they are far superior to some the junk that was approved and can be found in the model section.
