Which means that instead of you having to look and sort the posts, that's a job that would be issued on mods.
And, as far as I'm concerned (and only talking in my name), that's some time I can't spare/job I'm not willing to take
I have to agree - not only would that take a lot of doing for us, it's also highly subjective what quality level a work is at and people are likely to get offended if we pick a category that the person disagrees with, not to mention we would have to research or play everything that gets posted to properly determine the category. The amount of work it would require is the same reason that games put on the arcade are auto-approved now - it was just too much for us to deal with to approve them manually.
I also agree that the 'your creations' section is a bit problematic as it is, though I'm not sure of the best way to do anything about it. Maybe something sort of like the TIGSource forums have might work, having a section for completed games and another for devlogs/in progress ones. Then when someone has finished a game, they can start a new thread in the completed games section?
Thinking about it, even if users do post in the wrong area and simply we leave them there, having multiple categories might be better anyway. We would get at least some categorization that way, as I suspect most users would place their threads in the right place. Tech demos(or call it experiments instead?)/devlogs/completed games sounds good to me in that case.
