There's a lot of software packages out there which have add-on mods and plugins. I've yet to come across one that has a great management interface for managing which software I hate, love, purchased, etc.
Some software plugin directories have thousands of items. It's hard to keep track of all of them on the software company's site.
Here on IPS, I do have the ability to use the manage purchases - which is an ok list. But it's a daunting task to manage everything I've installed, purchased, or just plain don't want to see ever again like the developer who released 27 color change themes and the theme I want is on page 27. I've resorted to creating an excel spreadsheet for all the mods I want and have installed - free and paid. I've got to update that darn list every time someone releases a new version or a new plugin comes into the marketplace. I feel like an accountant.
It would be great to see some additions to a marketplace item so I can set certain filters.
I was thinking:
2. Don't Want
4. Not Working
Allow me to set these for each of the mods in the marketplace. Then I can see a list of items based on my preferences. This way I'd be able to manage what is in the marketplace. If I like something I can add it to the Favorite list, if I hate something I can add it to the Don't Want list, and so on. Give me the ability to see all the information is a table format if I choose (Name, Link, Version, Last Updated). Maybe even add a personal comment - especially if I have multiple licenses and need to make a note which license belongs to which site.
When the marketplace has 20K items it's going to be hard to sort through everything (ie Wordpress). It'll also give IPS and the developer the ability to see stats on what filters users put on the items.
Allow me to set filters for each item, so I can see a list of what I really want to see.
