(ABC123) Marketplace FileNames

personally they are distracting - they don't relate to the download (other than an abbreviation of the company possibly)



I'd prefer a standard of "Name version ##.##"



I agree with you, which is why I remove the tags when I update any of my old mods. And a few others do the same.

It's also annoying when you install the application or hook. I go in and modify it's name to remove the prefix. Also with hooks it's extremely annoying when it creates an entirely separate group in settings. I like to have them all under the hooks group. Perhaps there should be some kind of standard when submitting to the marketplace?

'Hooks' isn't even a standard group. Any hooks that you installed that put their settings there are just folks who decided to make that their standard.

It's just branding. It can be confusing, and annoying, I suppose.

But it can also be helpful. I look towards certain authors for creating solid products and delivering reliable support. For those authors I trust, the prefix is like a top shelf brand. I can't say there are any current "brands" I automatically shy away from, but there have been in the past. I definitely have some favorites that I will always look into when they appear.
