The Downloads section has received a slight change. From here on out, you will need to log in as a registered member in order to see and use the downloads. Guests won't have access to that section.

I made this change so we can better keep track of who downloads what.....this is mainly from a statistics point of view and so we can hopefully interest newcomers to not only make an account here but to feel welcome to post and take part in the activities of this community and forum.

On a side-note, this will also be an opening for a flood of leeches to come in. Or just random people who will join, download everything, and leave. Which is what I don't like.

And because they're registered, we'll know who did it.

In my opinion, it will actually generate more leechers....

This may be why over 3/4 of the "members" on BB have under 3 posts.

Every Message Board I've ever been on has a large amount of members that sign up but never post.  Whether they're trolls, anti-social, scared, or just plain shy, I have no clue.  So, it's not due to just access to downloads.

Maybe make it so members can download only 3 times normally, then after that they need a certain number of posts for more.

*downloads everything*

 :ninja:

Oh, hang on, if I was going to leech I'm supposed to leave without posting after the downloads.  Guess it's a bit late for that now.
