Re: WE WANT MP3s!!

They were nice at first...like when I was new and that's all I wanted, you know. But now I just come because it's fun. I love the people here. I guess it'd be nice to have them back, but it's nice not having a bunch of newbies making stupid, pointless posts and threads like "Who has Evanescence mp3s." If we do get it back, there should be a safety or something that allows only certain members to get mp3s. Plus back when we had them, the server seemed slower because all the bandwidth was used in downloading. Things are much smoother now.

Re: WE WANT MP3s!!

Yeah, I'd like to have the mp3s back but I think that all it would really cause is annoying people posting just to get points, ya know? If theres a way to cut down on that... it'd be fantastic...

Re: WE WANT MP3s!!

ehh, i just use kazaa or limewire, im pretty sure that there wouldnt be the ones im looking for anyway, and im pretty sure it would be illegal for us to download and distribute Mp3s... i think if we want we should just do them by ourselves on P2P clients that way the site legality is not comprimised.

i havent had the chance to see it yet though so this is just my opinion without seeing it as i wasent a member when they were still up.

Re: WE WANT MP3s!!

I rather like not having the mp3s because of less stupid people posting. For awhile it was getting to be a huge problem and it's really toned down now. Besides, I almost never used the mp3 section, i came to talk to people really.

Re: WE WANT MP3s!!

I know I couldn't get Kazaa to work here at school for a while, but there are many different ways of getting MP3's. Sharker can usually hook you up with just about anything, and now that I know how to do it over AOL, I can help anybody. Just send me a PM and I can look on Kazaa for anything you want.

Ok, we had a point system back in the day (kinda like the points we have now for the store). In order to get MP3s, you had to earn points. In order to earn points, you had to make posts. It didn't require a whole lot of posts. People who were looking for MP3s found this site, posted spam to get the MP3, and went about their business. We got an overload of spammers, so therefore the MP3s eventually had to go. Damn, has it been that long since the MP3s were discontinued? Time flies...

Re: WE WANT MP3s!!

i reckon the ability to download mp3s [were the system re-introduced] shouldn't depend on the number of points you rack up, but on your rep. that way people can't get away with spamming for points - you'd have to earn the ability to download through posting interesting, substantial and worthy posts.

Re: WE WANT MP3s!!

it just makes more sense for the mp3s to be rewards to those who work to deserve them - i've always been one to believe in quality as opposed to quantity.

although that doesn't stop me whoring on the never ending threads

I think we tried that too... in order to gain rep, you have to be given rep. It becomes a popularity contest and newbies were pretty much shut out. Note my scarce posting. I don't post often because although I've been here a while, I feel that everytime I post, I risk a billion people accusing me of spamming. Without the MP3s, people are less highstrung about posting and people can actually post in the forum like it's, well, a forum. I still want the MP3s, though. There's gotta be a way to bring them back while still maintaining harmony...

I suppose if you want MP3s, just ask Sharker.
