I will repeat myself as I didn't give too much details:
I am asking for a light, well optimized query with only a few data returned, like the results on the main page:
20 to 50 results max
with only 4 columns: Date/time added (so you know easily the new dumps added since your last visit), flag, hardware, title
But with PC/MAC excluded.
The query is already written, only an additional where clause has to be added to it. This query is light and well optimized for the server, and very fast. The page served is also very light with only few kb to download.
I don't want to:
- use the RSS feed with 500 results, full of data I am not interested in at first, with a heavy query that takes seconds to finish. + the need to use another software to filter the results.
- have 50+ pages to browse, with 500 results, full of data I am not interested in at first and without the most important data: the date/time added, with 50 queries that take seconds to finish.
These solutions give bad UX, are 20-100 times heavier for the server and give a lot more data to download uselessly.
Yes, IR0b0t has some other tasks to do, I know and I understand. But my request is easy to implement and could give the users of the site a good/better experience.
