    Hi, I recently released a new version of my Civ 3 Fantasy Mod: Tides of Crimson. The new version is 1.6, so i want to remove the 1.5 patch from the downloads page, as it is now obsolete. But there seems to be no option to remove it. Do i need to ask an administrator to remove an obsolete file? Or is there a way to do it myself that I'm not aware of?

    This is a really good question. Under VB, I seem to remember that not only could we see a running total for our various post-attachments (savegames, screenshots etc.) directly through our 'Personal details' page(s), but we could also delete that stuff ourselves, without having to trawl through our entire posting-history.

    I don't see anything similar to that functionality in the new XenForo Account details page(s), so I now have no idea how much megabyte-age I've got attached to my account, how close I am to my upload-limit (if that still applies?) nor how I can remove old files to make room for new stuff. The dedicated Modders :worship: and other content-creators :hatsoff: must have it even worse than I do.

    Is there any way to rearrange the list we get in 'My content', so that e.g. all the posts are made invisible, and/or the (oldest) post-attachments end up at the top, where they can be removed...?

    Or what am I missing?

    Moderator Action: Moved to Site Feedback for exposure/the question being more about site functionality than specifically Civ3.

    I removed Tides of Crimson 1.5 from public view
    (which was available from the Delete Resource option). Interestingly, I don't see a Delete Resource option for my own resources. It seems that permissions are not correctly set.

    On the same note can we move uploads to different categories. I want to move a unit from industrial category to modern units. Very easy to do in the old version. No idea how to do it in this version.
