Yeah I can see that the list got really crowded and it got hard to tell what ship individual ship mods do. However, I don't really want to pass judgement on mods here, I find that would be too subjective and might scare off new modders. Like, we'd have to define what constitutes a joke mod, what qualifies as overpowered etc. and that could get sketchy quickly. Further more, some of the categories would overlap and therefore wouldn't necessarily make it easier to find certain mod. The ship pack category might be worth considering though. And yes, I'm also lazy and not really into the idea of having to sieve through hundreds of mods in order to categorize them.
But yeah, as I understood the list's purpose always was to index mods, not to evaluate them. Users will need to check mods themselves to see how sophisticated they are, but in most cases that should be manageable by a quick glance on the mod thread. Pictures can go a long way there and modders can clarify what their work does by tagging their threads and providing good images.
Acerbus might be outdated then, I couldn't find a new link anywhere. Might get removed then.
