What i am finding by Default the download list In Pi FrontEnds is in Size and noob's are gabbing the First image they see
If the List was auto sorted by Date (by default) it would stop this Problem
Yes there is the Option to Sort by Date Added, but they are not doing that, and grabbing old images for thier new 3B+,Â LoL

OKÂ guys, we listened a while ago (a week or 2 after this original post…) I spoke to the other guys and … (as you can see) we now have :-
Im sure its not obvious, but I'll break it down ?
Name: Sort all downloads (July 2018 – present) alphabetically
Newest: Sort all downloads (July 2018 – present) with the latest first
Oldest: Sort all downloads (July 2018 – present) with the oldest (July 2018) first
(Archive 2016) – All the downloads from 2016 – needless to say they are rarely seeded and USENET would be your best bet to download!
(Archive 2017) – All the downloads from 2017 – needless to say they are rarely seeded andÂ USENETÂ would be your best bet to download!
(Archive 2016) – All the downloads from 2016 – needless to say they are rarely seeded andÂ USENETÂ would be your best bet to download!
(Archive 2018 Jan – Jul) – All the downloads from the first half of 2018 – some are still well seeded, some are dead,Â USENETÂ would be your best bet to download!
Now, to most of us, this is great, keeps everything nice, and like the original poster stated, it does prevent 'n00bs' from grabbing the first image they see, and if they do at least if they are grabbing the torrent there is a good chance of it being well seeded (dont get me started on leachy slimey hit and runners!) , BUT, we have now encountered a new problem, people struggling to find stuff, older stuff mainly, now me personally , I think its quite obvious, all articles have a date on (the read nfo links) , so if someone heads to Arcade Punks, does a search for a specific Pi Image, finds it, the date is in the article (lets say August 2017) , so when they go to PI DOWNLOAD FRONT ENDS PAGE, surely it makes sense to hit "(ARCHIVES 2017)", but NO, apparently its easier to glance, not see it on the current page, and then create a forum post, or email us, or message the FaceBook page or even comment on unrelated articles !! – or worse, and seen recently , do all 4!!!
We cant win , lol, thanks for your input by the way O.P. it was a good suggestions, unfortunately we cannot do anything b size as that would mean we would know the size of all the files, but alas, we only have the nzb and torrent file so the actual download size is not known to us, unless its in the title of the pi image (which most are)
