Relations tab should not list Incompatible under Dependencies Merged

The Relation tab is quite problematic when going to list other mods as incompatible with my own (due to implementation issues and such). The reason is when I do mark a mod as incompatible, it shows up by default in the Relations tab under a big bold Dependencies text and Dependency Types being All Types.

Nowhere on this screen can users see what is a required dependency, what is optional, and what is incompatible unless they change the Dependency Types dropdown. And no one is gonna click that dropdown lol. They just go to the page to quickly see what other dependencies they might need.

And yeah, I actually got a report from a player who found the game was imploding because they went to the relations tab, saw these mods, and downloaded them to play with my mod. These mods I had marked as incompatible. Chaos ensues.

Proposal: Remove Incompatibilities from the Dependency Type dropdown and make it its own category under Dependencies dropdown. This is best because incompatible mods are not dependencies and thus, should not be showing up under the Dependencies category selected. The other stuff in Dependency Type are dependencies and can remain. The other option is to just redesign this entire page from scratch lol. But for now, the quick fix I suggested will be immensely helpful and help prevent a ton of headaches and issues from happening when users goes to the Relations tab.

    Another thing: that drop-down you mention doesn't work on Firefox 103.0.2 (64-bit)
