Jam submission feed feedback

I think the submission feed for a jam should post an event whenever a game is submitted to the jam instead of when it's created. The way it currently is, events show up under events you've already seen, and since there's no way to sort entries, it's hard to keep track of every game coming in if you want to follow that. Also, this appears to be what happens on the site-wide games feed when a game goes from restricted to published, which is not what I was expecting after reading the docs. Another thing about the feed is that an event is posted when a game is rated on its game page, even when rating isn't open for the jam yet. This is kind of confusing.

Thanks for the feedback. I agree the jam feed could use some work. Right now it just shows all events from games that are part of the jam, it doesn't try to create any jam specific events. Generally the time between submitting to the jam and creation of the project page isn't huge though, so it hasn't really been an issue, but I hadn't through about the ordering issue.
