Featured downloads will return

2 Apr 2010 at 10:23

Soon enough you’ll see more of those long news posts with cool screenshots. At first we’ll deal with a small backlog of downloads from the past few months that haven’t been featured, somehow.

There will be some small changes to how the featured downloads are done, too. Expect it to be more rewarding all together!

More rewarding for whom? The reciever of the featured download or the writer of the newspost…. ¬_¬

The way featured downloads are currently done does seem rather silly. Maybe just flag especially noteworthy uploads as “featured” when they’re found? That’s what a lot of other sites do.

so why cant i tag files or post reviews anymore? power abuse?

snzspeed on 3 Apr 2010 at 10:28

also i have to say i havent been capable of tagging files for a fucking year. so if you ban someone from doing something, could you atleast remember to unban?

I didnt even get any warnings btw.

That’s because some people are corrupt power-abusive hitler-nerds.

Snooze: Your reviewing priviledges were taken away after you posted another (I don’t even know, the fifth already?) useless drunk/insulting review. Check again in about a week, or less/more.

I don’t know who took away your tagging permission, or why, so I’m going to leave it for the time being. Keep in mind that the ability to tag pictures is disabled globally, not just for you.

CrimiClown: Yes. :(

minmay: What’s silly about writing a short feature on the frontpage? There are other sites which do that, too.

cooba: alright. I personally didnt think it as that offensive but I can understand if you people view it as that. anyway, thanks for telling me. :)

CR, you don’t even know what are you talking about.

cooba: Writing a short feature on the frontpage isn’t silly, but doing it for one upload per month feels like a waste; often several great uploads appear in a month, or everything uploaded in a month is crap.

cooba on 3 Apr 2010 at 14:29

That is what we’re going to change, yes ;)

Stijn on 3 Apr 2010 at 16:21

Snooze: I honestly can’t remember whether I was the one who took your tagging privileges or not. Either way, I’ve restored your download tagging ability, don’t abuse it.
