Printables feature request - limit search by model age, but still allow for sorting

I'd like to suggest an option to browse the models uploaded in the last X amount of time, but still sort them by likes, downloads, etc.

An example, since I have a hard time explaining this:

At this moment, I can sort by the amount of likes received by the model in the last 7 days. That's not what I want. Since this type of search doesn't care for the age of the model, but only the amount of likes received in the specified time frame, the majority of the models will stay the same for months. I no longer discover anything new when searching like this, I've already seen these models.

I'd like to be able to search for models uploaded in the last 7 days and then sort them by the amount of likes they received in that time. This way, I can browse the most liked models, but get a fresh batch each week. I can discover the latest favourites of the community easily.

I propose to add a third filter - "Uploaded in:" - with the same options as the second one - Past 7 days, Past 30 days, Past year, All time etc.

This way we can search for the latest models and still sort them by a criteria different than their age. It will also make it much easier to discover new great models.
