Remove MMORPG games that no longer work

Hi guys

From time to time I browse through the mmorpg games on Itch to see if any new one popped up. But I also found a lot of games in the results that are no longer working due to the server not being online anymore. I commented on a few but never got a response, which makes me believe those games are pretty much dead.

The problem however is some of them are still up and running and doing great. But due to the fact most of the games in the results are no longer working I need to download and test each game I like to play to figure out whether or not they are still playable. And on top of that, isn't it against the rules to host a game that isn't working?

With kind regards,

It's very hard for the itch.io to automatically detect when an mmorpg, or any other project doesn't work. The best you can hope for is someone using the report button.

I'd personally think that "report" refers to "game being against itch's guidelines", than using it as feedback to the host e.g. if a game isn't working? If a thread could summarize  player's found results, it would be probably an alternate way, I guess?

Personally I don't think it matters as long as the moderators become aware of it. That being said, it only makes sense to do so if it actually violates a rule. And if it does not I would also like to hear from admins or moderators what their opinion is on the subject. After all, wouldn't a cleaner result list benefit everyone?
