Campaigns.
>Searches for campaign
>Nothing but voice, skins and other various packs

I wanted custom campaigns, not.. Whatever the hell that is. -~-
Can someone, ANYONE make it so that the campaign section of the L4D2 workshop has ONLY custom campaigns instead of all these other packs, which have literally nothing to do with any custom campaigns? I try looking for any fun custom campaigns to play, and all I can find are weapons, sounds, skins, whatever the hell there is there.

This is the result of Workshop "authors" tagging their mods with everything thus cluttering the workshop with irrelevant tags. For example I tag my sound mods as Sound & Misc & possibly Tank/Withc etc etc. I see "Campaign" tagged sound mods, why I know not.

Nothing you can do except peruse the shop and sort them out. Untill Valve implements or actually appoints a moderator or authors finally realize their mods get no more attention by tagging with everything than with just the relevant ones...this is how it will remain.

Only Valve can fix the mess that is the workshop tag system.

Best option, select the campaign tag. Then use the word search for: campaign map. While not totally effective, most actually Campaigns use the word campaign and map in the description. Where most other files don’t use both words. You can also try other combinations of words, but that’s basically what Knappy suggested.

Not a fix to the workshop but here is a list of campaigns (not all inclusive):
Redemption
Journey to Splash Mountain
Taco Bucket
Warcelona
Suicide Blitz 2
I Hate Mountains

Dead Before Dawn (Director’s cut)
The Bloody Moores
Yama
Lego Hard Rain
Plan B
Dnieper
Undead Zone
Diescraper Redux
A Dam Mission
ZMB-13
Surrounded by the Dead II

Back to School
Urban Flights
Blackout basement
The Last Volt
25 to Life
Daybreak
Downtown Dine
Death Woods
Dark Blood 2

Fun single map challenges:
Tank Challenge
Tank Playground

There are filters. The problem is that nobody uses tags correctly.

Couldn't the mods just be filtered by anlyzing the addoninfo.txt in the .vpk? If it has "1" next to the appropriate category, why not automatically narrow the tags that way? Again it's just a suggestion...but yeah it totally irks me how people spam their tags.

The problem with that is that you can just set all the categories to 1 there almost as easy as in the uploader.

The fundamental idea is good though, and campaigns and mutations could at least be detected by searching for mission and mode scripts.

Another solution is to mass downvote anything thats wrongly tagged as campaign.

Yep, plus mass report. Takes forever, though...
