Filtering searches for Games Nearby

When using the excellent "Games Nearby" feature, it would be incredibly useful to be able to set filters based on when the game was last updated or if it's actually in progress or not.

Although there are a large number of games close to me, finding those that have been actually active recently is quite difficult.

It would very much aid finding campaigns to follow along with or to more easily find games currently looking for players instead of those that have been long abandoned.

    Very good suggestion, I am actively compiling ideas on how we can improve this area moving forward, this is added to my list.

    An alternative method would be to have campaigns "expire" after a set amount of time without activity. As such, GMs could be sent reminders to reactivate their campaigns and would have to refresh or opt their campaigns back into the search.

    With this method, searching for nearby games would by default only search for active games, To find older/unactive games, users could simply a check a box to look for "old/archived" campaigns.

    Another awesome suggestion. If you end up with more do not hesitate to drop them. I can't ensure every single suggestion will make it in, but the more ideas the better I say.

    We, many of us, have been asking to filter out dead games for a long time.
    However, since they still have not fixed the blank campaign system section that has been there for their entire ownership period, I just don't see it happening
