@Don9 No, both rejected and pending do not mean the same "has not been approved" because their final status is different. Anyway I won't lose my time discussing unnecessary things like that, think whatever you want.
Yes I agree, the site layout (which is not the database) was "poorly" made, not by any of the current staff but the old site administrator which username was Rappo. It was built back then in 2015 in a way that makes it extremely difficult (to don't say impossible) to apply any changes/additions without messing other and existing content. That's not our problem and is not something we can fix without migrating 5Mods to the main administrators site which is NexusMods (but the community does not want that! ).
Due to that and now that you know it (even thought it wasn't a mystery either), unless you're willing to provide the requested links to the uploads you were referring to I have nothing more to say.
