Why the same prefixes in the Mods and Templates sections?

<?rant

Hey,

I just finally had it with the prefixes in the mods sections. Why are the same prefixes used in the Mods forums and also in the Templates forums for the mods?

If you want to find template mods for the postbit you cant, you have to search. And some of the template mod prefixes make no sense, for example:

Anti spam options
Admin and maintenance tools
Moderator functions
Integration
Board optimization
Sphynx
Project tools
etc etc etc etc etc

Can someone take a minute and make a set that fit the templates?

Thanks,

-Jason

Why can't there be template mod for Project Tools? Or Moderator Functions or Admin Tools or any of those? They are just categories that mods tend to fall into. If you aren't looking for Project Tool template mods, then just don't select it to sort by, no?

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.

Not mods, templates.

postbit template mods would be under Showthread Enhancements.

Lynne,

Why lump postbits (or any other) when the prefixes are so unbalanced? One size here does not fit all. Here are the counts per each of your prefixes in the Vb4 Mods forum:

In Forum Order:
All Prefixes= 572
Mini Mods= 152
Add-On Releases= 16
End-User Options= 4

Show Thread Enhancements= 101
Profile Enhancements= 28
Private Messages Enhancements= 9
Social Group and Album Enhancements= 1
Calendar Enhancements= 1
Anti-Spam Options= 1
Administrative and Maintenance Tools= 4

Lowest to Highest:
vBulletin Sphinx= 0

Anti-Spam Options= 1
Moderators Functions= 1
Portal Software= 1

Forum Display Enhancements= 43
Miscellaneous Hacks= 65
Forum Home Enhancements= 77
Show Thread Enhancements= 101
Mini Mods= 152
All Prefixes= 572

Only 6 of the 28 possible prefixes have more than 20 template mods in them. 90% of all the mods are in those 6.

All I can do is suggest, you guys do it anyway you want.
