Lightbulb Direct Download Section

This may have been brought up before. Nevertheless, I'll bring it up again. It would be cool if there was a section where folks could post download links (such as from MegaUpload, RapidShare, etc.) so people could download shows that way. You could still adhere to the rules (having accurate lineage, yada yada yada...). It's an alternative for torrenting.

Just a sujjeschun.

Re: Direct Download Section

this is fine by me. just post it in the Piano Bar forum, normal seeding rules apply. if there's enough threads to justify a new forum, we will open a new forum.

Re: Direct Download Section

There is no need for another forum as there's already "External Torrents" in both ABT & VBT. Just post them there.

Re: Direct Download Section

It's the same thing in principle. Just post them there since they have to abide by the rules anyway. There have been Video seeds posted in there that were upped on Megaupload already.

Re: Direct Download Section

hmm food for thought

anyhow if its up to our seeding standards for the tracker yet not on the tracker its okay to post it.

this thread is timely as I was planning to share my next show in a similar fashion, and am interested in a rapidshare/megaupload/etc dedicated forum--if there's enough interest.

Re: Direct Download Section

anybody who doesn't live in a cave has used "ftp replacement sites". bt is old news, rapidshare and the like are cutting edge now. we must embrace the latest technology of filesharing

I never read the external torrents forums because I am not interested in external torrents. but I am interested in direct downloads. this has been on my mind for a couple of years now.

lets discuss what everybody thinks of lossless live music sharing on ftp replacement sites as an alternative to bit torrent...

Re: Direct Download Section

I'm just saying there's no need for another forum with very little use. Just take "torrents" out of the title (External Audio & External Video).

Re: Direct Download Section

well its labeled that way for a reason... we had a 'non bit torrent downloads' forum at STG and it was full of the most garbage you've ever seen. It was the anus of the site, incredible amounts of shit pumping out of that forum. Lynne will tell you when she gets back.

so we need to take a bit of a different approach.

Actually, I don't remember that forum at all.

I could change the name of the External forums to External Audio Downloads and External Video Downloads if we think there are going to be other types of downloads besides torrents. I just don't recall anyone mentioning wanting to put other types of downloads there. You do have to still go through the Upload page to put stuff up there.

Re: Direct Download Section

ratio free, high speed downloads with no need to beg for seeders

might not be much use for video collectors, as you would have to download from a ton of links and wait around for a long time if you don't have a paid account at a filesharing site, but for shorter audio shows, it would be extremely popular.

awww now you're making it look like I just made it up or something


mixing it in with external is just such a big yawn. "direct download section", now that's exciting. there's entire boards & blogs based around this, but they're mostly infested with mp3 garbage and stupid banner ads all over the place. we could do it better, with quality control.

is this one of those times when I'm not making sense?
