No, this isn't a Blacksmith Feature where we recognize an awesome work that has been submitted to the Blacksmith in the past. The Blacksmith actually has a new feature of its own. Below the New Files sidebar on the left side of the page is a new Recent Updates sidebar! Now when your work has been updated, it will display in this sidebar.

In addition, as many of you have known, files that had been updated since their original Blacksmith release had some "updated on" text that appeared above the main banner. This text has now been relocated to a much more pleasing location, below the name of the file.

We hope that these tweaks will make your Blacksmith browsing experience that much better. Happy downloading!

Excellent feature! Updated files surely were buried before with no way to know besides manually checking

This is a good new Man!

Also about the relocation of the updated day under the name of the file, I preferred to the original location of this info, in the upper left corner of the screen, but the sidebar under the new file is absolutely amazing!

This is one of those ideas so good that you wonder why no one thought of it in the last 17 years or so.

(Or was it originally announced in November 1999 as coming "soon"?)

Imagine my surprise when I saw 'Against Thee, Wickedly' listed as the most recently updated file!

Nice improvement of the Blacksmith layout, btw. Unfortunately there's still a ton of features required that could make it easier to search for and find files - such as tags, 'similar files', drop down menus to look for files based on the game type or TC mod that's being used, etc - but I fear they would be too difficult to add with the current system already being ancient.

Wellent ich gugk, so hindert mich / köstlicher ziere sinder,
Der ich e pflag, da für ich sich / Neur kelber, gaiss, böck, rinder,
Und knospot leut, swarz, hässeleich, / Vast rüssig gen dem winder;
Die geben müt als sackwein vich. / Vor angst slach ich mein kinder
Offt hin hinder.
