!!! PETE !!!

i notice that your site has ALOT of redundant programs
cuase there is no way to delete the old and replace it
with the new....my friend has just given me the
complete PHP system he made for his upload site
it allows you to make an account( or linked to the forum account)
and you can add or delete your own files you upload....
it also has a rating system like yours and you can even
have a small image showing the program in operation
the only thing it does not have is different sections(YET) :)
IE

RPG,sounds,arcade,engines...etc....

it just has a list of the best(RATED) to the worst....

it uses MYsql like you use for your forums...so i know
you could use it...

would you like me to give it to you?, you can then
go into the file and customize it to the way you
want and to whatever paths you want.....you maybe
be even able to make the different sections you want
...he said you can completely tear it apart and use
all some or none of what he did...

let me know

The Downloads are heavily incorporated into this site's CMS, and a lot of sections depend on everything being in the same database... "Site Updates", "Top Rated", etc. Using a different script to take care of every different section of this site would be a major pain in the ass and would complicate everything.

Besides, every Download entry is completely editable and removable...by me, and anyone who I give an admin account (currently only Z!re). I just don't have time to edit the entries, since I'm so busy right now. Some day when I have some spare time, I'll go through and clean up the Downloads section.

If people give me the URL to an obsolete download I can remove it.. if thats ok with you pete..

I dont have time to go find them though..


I would only remove things if there was a later/newer file available
I have left this dump.

Well, like Pete said, he's busy. Putting a small image for EVERY download would take a long time... besides, it's not like we're all that cosmetic of people... we code in QB. :D

Exactly.

I agree, it would make the site better. But do I really have time to go through a few hundred downloads and make screencaps of all of them?

Actually, sid6.7 volunteered to go through the entire Downloads section and clean it up (delete repeats, fix messed up entries, etc.). So don't worry about it Z!re, he's got it covered.

howdy folks, glab to help

i may be emialing some of you to confirm whats
old or new to make sure the right versions are up
or you can go ahead and request i look at something
as i'll be starting in an hour or so going thru the whole
downlaods section...

i'll also download a copy of everything, so if i inadvertenly
delete the wrong program i'll have a copy of it to put back....or
if you want a copy i'll email it to you right away....

with petes permission im gonna try and think of a way
that folks can upload something if your doing a major
fix....IE.... 1.0 to 2.0 to 3.0....but if your doing a minor
revison 1.1 to 1.2 to 1.3 we have something else.....unless
of course you always do major revisions for every update

so here we go....

hey sid
sorry to bother but i just keep messing up(maybe not my problem)
please delete the older versions of 'zodiac' again and see if you could put the newest one in the strategy section because i accidently put it in arcade.

o and please try it out because someone keep on saying there is a problem with it(read comments). i tried it out myself but it is fine. that's the reason why i keep trying uploading it.

yeah and really sorry to bother if you are busy
