WinMx World News / 14th Anniversary Of WinMX Revival
« Last post by GhostShip on September 23, 2019, 11:32:05 pm »
Yesterday marks the 14th year since the network was nearly destroyed, its been a lot of time and events ago for many of us since then and theres been many changes and faces coming and going but the good news is the network is still here... what more do I need say   :D :D :

Happy anniversary folks  8)

For any newer community members enjoy a walk down WinMx memory lane (skip to the bottom of that page for the interesting stuff)  :yes:

WinMx World News / Child Abuse Images - And How To Report Them
« Last post by GhostShip on September 23, 2019, 07:00:05 pm »
Folks I was doing some further testing today and was taken aback by some unsavoury material titles being shared on the network, I actually felt sick to my stomach  just reading some of the search results and so I felt this is a reasonable time to rally you good folks to ensuring we dont become the p2p network of choice for abusers.

Join me in making life a misery for such undesirables

PS: if you can think of any improvements to this tutorial drop me a line. cheers folks.
WinMx World News / KH Visits The WPN

Today I was running some tests to locate a network issue and noticed this strange occurance  :suspious:

This image shows the console window of the Nushi Sniffer tool and the address is very visible due to the ports in use, not your normal winmx ports eh folks.

Now before you rush off and google the IP I have already done so and can confirm this traffic is emanating from that are all owned by the same guy who wrote WinMx back in 2000.

I suspect he wants many of you to try out his software offerings (Tixati or Fopnu) as without a userbase writing even the best software is wasted time, I dont know why he hasnt simply posted a message here as he is a much respected person, shy perhaps ?

Rossi I an unable to fathom your level of intellect given the situation here, as you are fully aware we have a lot of the code for a direct replacement in the bag, we dont have it all however and we also dont have all the skilled coders and time we need.

Do you feel we are being dishonest in some way ?

What about you do what I do. put something in, time, knowledge, discussion etc

As a logical person I find it hard to comprehend how folks can extrapolate anything but good will and continued effort from my posts as thats the truth of the matter, there are currently two folks working on ourmx and we are struggling with the transfers section, thats been the main holdup, I will remind you that both of us have real lives and jobs to deal with that take up a lot of our private time despite our best efforts to get more done, you could have spotted that for yourself simply by watching the site activity or rather lack of it as we prioritise our efforts rather than post news etc.

I remember I asked for help testing one Ourmx version and disappointingly received a minimal set of responses almost all stating they wanted to help but didnt have the skillset or knowledge to deploy the tools I needed employing at their end, given this serious lack of community engagement I could be forgiven for feeling some folks are not as engaged as they could be and that feeds into preventing a resolution of the general client replacement problem, we do want to be able to move forward and we do want to be able to pass tools, code and knowledge forward in time to assist those who follow us in their journey of supporting the network.

We always have a choice in life in what direction we choose, the team here and those whom have given time and resources to this network have done so without asking anything in return bar the respect of the community, we have over time prevented all efforts to monetise the network, we have encouraged nearly all other support sites to run as best they can free of annoying ads and other displays of "Business", thats because this isnt business, its our network, yours mine and anyone elses whom runs the software,our interactions make up the networks lifeblood and ensure the networks survival, thats a powerful concept, theres no central server or corporate nonsense involved in anything folks do on this network.

Now knowing all of this and how strongly we feel in ensuring there is continuity for the userbase what about finally doing your part and searching out opportunities to both nurture and protect this network.

You are your own boss so theres not really any excuses to keep lashing out with  derision and sarcastic rhetoric onto your fellow network users trying to make things stable for the future when your own effort is near zero.

Winmx Hideout
it almost looks like they are coming out of the closet
Or maybe I did not look hard enough, anyway, I am more than happy to have proof now that we have not been keeping up a dream all those years.

I'm immensly proud of the folks that keep the spirit of WinMx alive Wonderer, its great to see so many folks had a great time using the network across the nearly 20 years its been up it really does bring a smile to my face to read such posts and to know that despite some bad times based on mistrust we have all been able to utilise the network for learning new skills, sharing our talents and most importantly making new friends.

I spent many years learning to listen to folks in other lands whom I would never meet in real life, sharing their hopes and dreams for the future as well as some sad moments and in-between I  helped a few set up a router or

Good people good time's and many treasured memories.
