OK, I'll dig around in the config and fix that.

Fixed!

I believe that it gave you an error when you attempted to register again? I'll look into that one as well, I can't believe how many issues I'm having right now. In any case, you have the permissions to upload files. I think there might be an issue with file size, I'll fix that ASAP.

Yeah, it stated that there was an error in sending the registration email. I'm kicking myself for not taking screen prints for you.

Bugs? Yeah, been there in the past. Don't stress on it. Your doing a great thing. We all really appreciate you guy's work. (Wow, was that a Cousin Vinnie moment or what?)

Say, You guys wouldn't be interested in an almost complete collection of MacAddict cd's, would you? Actually have several duplicates as well. A lot of it is OS7, 8 & 9 stuff but there is some OS X stuff (games, utilities and trial software) as well. I also have an almost double set of Mac Cube cd set from Aztech software. Though it's all OS7 stuff on them.

Let me know and pm me a mailing address and I'll send them too you.

Torrents would be particularly well suited to this type of thing. Unfortunately I set up a very similar archive for something else, it never took off because people just couldn't grasp how BitTorrent works. We caught a load of flak from people who had just heard of BT being bashed in the mainstream press for being the root of piracy and didn't understand how it worked.

Anywho, regardless of that failure, if you are interested, I will have a dig around for our code - it has all the usual stuff you'd expect (categories, comments etc.) as well as auto-seeding, virus scanning and torrent creation from files.

Also, there is this huge misconception that WordPress is just for blogs. This is so very wrong! It is an extremely flexible CMS platform, and you'll find that many high-traffic sites actually use it.

I will second the word press praise, it is surprisingly powerful and flexible. Plenty of plugins for it too!

I am having trouble getting our server to connect to Google's SMTP servers, so it is generating an error when it tries to send a registration email. I manually activated all of your accounts this morning. I thought I had deactivated the automatic email for new users, but evidently I forgot to save that change.

Just register, if it pulls up the error, I will have to manually approve you, if not, you are ready to post in the forums. However, before you upload, I will have to change the permissions associated with your account. This is to prevent any random person from uploading software illegally- I just check it with your Macrumors name. Please read the topic in the forums about what you can and can't upload.[COLOR="#808080"]

----------


Max upload size is 100MB

Also, in case you're still gathering apps, here are a couple that are trials of full versions, but will work with a serial if you buy the latest Intel version:

OmniFocus (can run on Tiger or Leopard): http://www.omnigroup.com/ftp1/pub/so...cus-1.10.2.dmg

1Password (Leopard only):
http://aws.cachefly.net/dist/1P/mac/...ord-3.5.15.zip

1Password (Tiger):
http://aws.cachefly.net/aws/dmg/1PW2...ord-2.12.1.zip

Everyone who has attempted to register thus far can now upload files that are up to 100MB. If they are higher, PM me, and I can make adjustments to allow larger files.

Hey Keeks, I thought we were only allowing certain people to upload?

Yup. Everyone who has registered has been on Macrumors and I think everyone so far is trustworthy. I'll PM you and show you how to edit user permissions in a moment.

Do you have to be logged in to download files? I see none :/

about trial and that stuff,to avoid piracy problems I guess we should only update legal files, then anyone who wnats use iserial or something.
For example I have here bluephoneelite, the latest version, I will only upload the file, but for sure iserial has the serial for it (it is the same as the olders ones).
You can't even buy the app now.

I am not at home and the only access to internet I have is an iPad, so I can't upload files. You can view files but not download if you are not signed in. Any registered user can download files, certain users that I can trust can upload files.

Is there any particular reason for making users register in order to download files? Sure, if it's the only place I can find a file I'd sign up - but otherwise I would move straight on and find somewhere else to download from.

If you're worried about bandwidth abuse then I would recommend sticking all the files in the cloud on something like S3 which will give you more than enough space for a few dollars a month.

Nope, I can't see files. 0 Files.

Register to download? hmmm yeah...

Registering helps with bots and some other nasty things.

You could add captcha/reCaptcha before downloading a file, like everybody does

Me neither .

If it would be possible, maybe there could be a CAPTCHA that is taken away when someone becomes a member .

If you stick Cloudflare in front of it with bot protection turned on, that will get rid of a good deal of them. Like I said before, dumping all the files in the cloud will make bandwidth abuse almost pointless because the storage is so cheap. Put a throttle on and disable hotlinking. There goes 90% of the bots without even resorting to using Captchas. There are plenty of decent alternatives to Captcha such as AreYouAHuman which is a lot less frustrating.

It still gives me an error saying that it won't save my registration nor was an email sent to activate registration.
