    Lately I often download some maps and I only play unprotected ones, so if I want to find something interesting I have to open 5-6 pages with maps and look at protected/unprotected, what is bandwidth hogging and take lots of time..

    Is there any chance that the search filter in maps
    section can be enchanced and there can be added a checkbox "protected/unprotected" ?

    I wouldn't have to jump over 31337 maps just to check if they are unprotected

    To do that we'd need to somehow implement sub-catagories within catagories. Because as it is right now, maps can only be in one catagory (minus Director's Choice)

    But the other issue is WEU. Maps made with it can only be opened by it. So it would have be "protected", "unprotected" and "unprotected WEU".

    But that way , lazy map makers can search for unprotected maps to edit.

    The download pages for darky's campaigns have hundreds of comments in the comments section. As a result, load time for those download pages is incredibly long. Just be patient.

    Every map is open source so such a filter would just show all the maps in database.
