    Password Protected Downloads

    Just wondering, is there anything in the rules about uploading a password protected file and requiring a pm to give out the password? I've come across a few files like this and it seems a bit inconvenient sometimes.

    Re: Password Protected Downloads

    I can't remember any rule like that and I haven't found such a download thread so far (maybe because most of the things I download are from the same uploaders).

    Anyway, I can understand your argument that it's not really "downloader friendly", but somehow I can also understand the uploader to make sure it's not a bot who's downloading (copyright and so on). But I think the uploader could also achieve the same effect with the hide functions and link crypter.

    Re: Password Protected Downloads

    There's a certain uploader that I find rather... eccentric, asking for pm's about silly things like something about yourself or a certain picture for the password, and the links themselves are hidden and can only be accessed with a Thank so I'm guessing that already takes care of the bot problem. I won't mention their name, just to protect their identity I guess.

    As long as you're not prompted to leave AS in search for the password, it does not break any forum rules.
