Anybody interested in adding the start_year of a campaign to the campaign listing, like this?

I don't think that's a great idea. Without a frame of reference, the average player would have no idea what those numbers mean (or even what YW means).

Good point, I agree: we don't want to present unnecessary information to casual players. And it's not just YW: TRoW and UtBS's start dates are "2 BW" and "300 AF" respectively.

For context, I think the reason I bothered to implement that was because I figured the start_date was lore and it wasn't presented anywhere else in the UI.

Would it be possible to have the year value be right justified, so it shows up under the Dates column? Currently it allows sorting chronologically, but doesn't show the actual dates it's sorting by.

Not easily. It's not a table, the "Dates" and the list of campaigns are two separate widgets.

doesn't show the actual dates it's sorting by.

Maybe the dates could be shown in the large pane on the right. Or maybe we could add a "More information" button that pops up another dialog, leaving the main campaign selection dialog streamlined. If we had such a place to dump extra information, we could use it to show the forum thread link, campaign version (if UMC), and so on, so this information wouldn't clutter the campaign selection screen

It could be done, same as any other dialog that has column-based sorting, but I think it would just clutter the UI more.
