Did you know torrents allow for commenting on the file. Most of the time, if you read the comments people have posted about it, you will know if the file is bad or isn't what you were looking for. That is one very nice thing I like about torrents. If the comments are bad, I look for another download. If there is no comment, I will either download the file and be the first to let people know, or I will ignore it and find something else. I have downloaded more things on WinMX that weren't what they said they were, then on torrents because of this. Most of the time it would be a porn instead of the new release movie I was really trying to get.

Yes Stevi I am aware that torrents allow for comments but these are not always accurate or complete.

I used a torrent site to download the "Buffy the vampire" series only to find that they had Dutch subtitles ... something that was not mentioned in the comments.

Within the last week I have used a torrent site to download the new Transformers movie ... 17 different downloads all with comments about how wonderful the quality was ... not one comment to tell me that the movie didn't work ... completed downloading every one of them to find when I ran it that it says it will only run on Windows Media Player ... play it with Media Player and get taken to a website which wants me to complete some offer before it will allow me to get the Codec to play it and then only to find that after completing the offer the movie wont play anyway.

At least with MX I DON'T have to waste my monthly download allowance getting a file that isnt what I want because when I download 1 or 2  meg of a 1 Gig file I can start it and see if it is what I want and if it will play, or not.

BUT that is getting off the topic ...

As a community we have to stand firm against this terrorist attack ... just as the people of USA did against the 911 attack and the people of England did against the bombing attack in London ... WE CAN NOT ALLOW THESE TERRORISTS TO WIN.

I think your problems come down to lack of experience with media codecs. If you get this codec pack:  http://www.free-codecs.com/k_lite_codec_pack_download.htm   you should be able to play anything you want.

However, VLC media player will play pretty much anything you throw at it video wise so I would give that a try as well. http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

It also is true, and can be considered an advantage that with WinMX you can preview a file as it downloads in order, but the reason torrents are split into chunks is so that the file can be distributed faster to multiple people in the most efficient way possible.

Stevi is right with comments being an advantage, but there are indeed some un-reliable comments. However, a good semi-private torrent site like iptorrents should give you no worries if you so choose to continue on the router of using torrents. If you're more comfortable with WinMX you should just stick with that. If you need an iptorrents invite I can supply them via site pm.

Another personal attack on someone giving suggestions.   :no:

You really should channel that extra energy into something productive like more time on your replacement client or the new patch. Criticizing informative and helpful posts on the forum, especially ones responding to someone else's inquiry and questions about torrents as well are media codecs is not the way to keep a community together. A community is a group of people living and working together. This includes exchanging ideas and information and people giving their own opinions. Not a single person in the community shall own everything. Everything is owned equally and everyone should have an equal chance to share their mind. Just as people listen to you Ghostship, you should do the same for others.

Stevi ,you may enjoy the regular spamming by REN room folks of this forum advertising torrents but I do not, does it not say WINMXWORLD at the top of the forum ?
It most certainly does not say TorrentWorld  and thus I for one am growing bored of such regular spam.


Josh when you stop covering up for winmx attackers I may well have more respect for you but as matters sit anything you say is treated with suspicion and therefore whilst people do still listen to me I want them to know your one of the lazy people who would rather aid the attackers than help in a solution, like most of the critics you have done nothing to help despite being a coder, so please don't make further suggestion to me what to do with my time when its thanks to people like yourself who cover up for the attackers we are where we are.

I would say the same about most of the posts made in the World News section of the forum. The posts about torrents are informative, and have something to do with p2p, again not all from the New section have any reference to p2p. Please do not ASSUME what I may and may not enjoy. I have simply stated that your attitude as an admin was not necessary, and the issue could have been handled differently. Aren't you the one always telling me about those kinds of things?

I reitterate Stevi this is not torrentworld, and I suspect I read a lot more posts than yourself to notice the creeping nature of some folks posts.

I have by the way assumed nothing and thus your rather rude usage of red is noted.


[update] I think I remember you too wearing the ren tag Stevi so perhaps you should be fair enough to folks and declare such an interest in defending Josh a fellow ren roomie.

Please note it, and note that I am out. I am sick of holding what I have to say back in fear of you! Every time I try and speak my mind, you are sending me private messages telling me not to do it in public. I think the public has a right to know what I have to say. I also think that if we are to expect trust in the users, I feel as though we should trust them enough to discuss things like that with them and get their input. The chat room has gotten so out of hand from the beginning, nobody even talks in there in fear of being banned. Some admins I feel have been able to get away with almost murder, and I am talked down to because I speak my mind. Well so much for thinking thats what WinMXWorld encouraged...

Goodbye WinMXWorld!

Ah, Quicks aka GhostShip is alienating members yet again.  I thought you weren't running this place anymore, fella?  Doesn't stepping down mean actually leaving?

Stevi is an intelligent thinker, a staunch supporter of WinMx and an asset to any group supporting WinMx.  She maintains a website devoted to WinMx and I've never once seen her be rude or ingracious in the several months I've known her now.

It's actions like Quicksilver's here today that inspired me to open SPAM in protest of the draconian leadership here at WMW.

Here's a small excerpt of sweet Stevi, from my WinMxEffex help room, just now:


05:42:47 <  ®ÊN  Stevi  002> omg im so done
05:43:25 x*rhi@nnon*x246810_60020 has left
05:45:14 <*||ññö©ëñ©ë*604> take care Red
05:45:19 <*||ññö©ëñ©ë*604> u okay stevie?
05:45:40 <  ®ÊN  Stevi  002> no Ghostship has finally pulled my last string
05:46:18 <*||ññö©ëñ©ë*604> ive heard so much about that one, tell em to fuck off he aint even worth fighting with darlin.
05:46:25 <*||ññö©ëñ©ë*604> dont get urself all worked up and stressed out.
05:46:44 <  Knot4Prophet  ™000> what this time, stevi?
05:47:11 <  ®ÊN  Stevi  002> its been building up the 6 years i have been with wmw     he never gives me anything to do and asks others to help
05:47:31 <*||ññö©ëñ©ë*604> then stop going to wmw they suck anyways and park ur ass here?
05:47:33 <  ®ÊN  Stevi  002> i have been telling him for 6 years that if there is anything i can do to let me know
05:47:34 <*||ññö©ëñ©ë*604> just a thought.
05:47:42 <  Knot4Prophet  ™000> 6 years?  since u were 12?
05:47:47 <  Knot4Prophet  ™000> :P
05:47:49 <  ®ÊN  Stevi  002> lol
05:47:56 <  ®ÊN  Stevi  002> im 22
05:48:01 <  Knot4Prophet  ™000> ah right ic.
05:48:29 Tracey-Two.003_39457 has left
05:49:35 <  ®ÊN  Stevi  002> i have done what i could for the network with what i could do       i am not happy with some of the admins and how they handle things and i am sick of trying to voice my opinion only to have Ghostship messaging me on the forum and telling me i souldnt do it in public
05:50:12 <  ®ÊN  Stevi  002> well i want the public to hear what i have to say because i think that if i want the public to trust me i will say anthing in front of them no matter what

05:50:13 <  Knot4Prophet  ™000> oh but he's not in charge!
05:50:15 <  Knot4Prophet  ™000> lol
05:50:18 <*||ññö©ëñ©ë*604> lol
05:50:26 <*||ññö©ëñ©ë*604> knot be nice she needs to vent.
05:50:43 <  Knot4Prophet  ™000> i am so far.
05:50:48 <  Knot4Prophet  ™000> he claims to not be in charge
05:50:51 <  ®ÊN  Stevi  002> yea thats what gets me     he is supposed to be retired but why does he still have god access on the forum?
05:50:59 <  Knot4Prophet  ™000> but he's running shit from behind the scenes all the time
05:51:07 <  Knot4Prophet  ™000> with his lil manipulative pm's and IM's
05:51:13 <  Knot4Prophet  ™000> i know coz i get 'em too
05:51:24 <*||ññö©ëñ©ë*604> lol
05:51:32 <  ®ÊN  Stevi  002> well im going to speak my mind   and if i have to be banned i will do so
05:51:37 <  Knot4Prophet  ™000> awesome.
05:51:45 <*||ññö©ëñ©ë*604> pathetic it's all people on power trips heard hes one of the worset.
05:51:51 <  Knot4Prophet  ™000> collaborations are about speaking ur mind
05:51:55 <  Knot4Prophet  ™000> n coming up with the best soloutions
05:52:12 <  ®ÊN  Stevi  002> WMW was founded upon free speech     i guess he has forgotten that
05:52:20 <  Knot4Prophet  ™000> has he ever.

Stevi's made some excellent points about transparency and accountability from which we can all learn.

Gonna delete this post too, Quicks?  I fully expect it.  Pretty much every time I post here, it gets deleted.  You going to send it along with the last posts of mine you deleted late last year that you said you'd send along and still haven't?  Lol.

eh?

Got anything sensible or pertinent to add, Bluey?  Why don't you just do what you're best at?:  controlling, restricting and banning others' speech in the WMW help room.

It is also the blatant disregard of my wishes that also upsets me about some admins here. They refuse to not have enough respect for me to obey them, whilst I show respect for them, and their wishes.
