As many of you have probably seen, I am working on a Downloads section for the forum.
Part of this is to create a number of categories.
I have created a number of categories already. Rather than list them off here, I'd like to know what categories you would like to see for this downloads area.
The purpose of this area is to host files that people use or look for frequently.
Things like new .dll's for programs. Plug-ins, skins, releases, etc. for the various front ends. Nifty programs that some of you have written.
Hosting these files here will help prevent those broken links that so many of us run across for those programs or files that you desperately need but just can't seem to find.
So let me hear your suggestions!
are some of the things which I assume will not make it to the final shortlist.
You are correct Enforcer.
Gobby - I decided to add this feature as a kind gesture, not as a way to screw people.

I try and do something for the forum and the users and it's turned into a joke and it ****es people off....
I shouldn't have expected anything less....
Things like ownership are very important when it comes to someones work, therefore you should understand that if you are going to host files you need to sort out who has ownership of those files, and make it clear to anyone who may consider uploading them.
Now as has been mentioned by gobby, forum rules states that all posts become owned by MP3Car.com therefore by implication anything uploaded to your servers also becomes owned by MP3Car.com.
So before inroducing something like downloads you need to make it clear whether anything uploaded will become MP3Car.com property or remain the property of the owner.
We are not having a go as such, but these sort of things should be thought out properly before being introduced.
To tell you the truth...I didn't even think about the section of the rule that was posted...the intent is not to make anything posted the property of MP3Car.com.
It's rather annoying when you try and do something you feel is thoughtful and done for others only to have it joked about (Enforcer, Odyssey, and Rafster) and ****ed on (Gobby).
Perhpas there would have been a more appropriate way to question it...something that doesn't come across as being so hostile right off the bat.
Perhaps, for once, something that's posted doesn't have to be turned into some kind of a joke or some porn/sex comment.
