I'm not being hostile, I'm pointing out facts. Nothing else. My finances don't fall into this discussion anymore than yours do! I haven't said one word about my situation in this thread.

I'd like to know what the site owners are doing while we're hacky-sacky-ing around ideas.  :)  I mean, they are the ones that will know what will work for what they have set up and available.

Dad you don't have to have mentioned your situation in this thread. We're all aware of it from your other posts and you are coming across as pissed off and antagonistic whether you mean to do so or not. Regardless, I'm not here to argue with you about it that's why I edited that post.

As for Cities, states and other governments taxing twice on items. Yes it's done. Doesn't make it legal or constitutionally sound. The fact is, this country was founded because of a rebellion over double and triple taxes on merchandise, among other things, and it could bloody well happen again.

Apologies to Matrixworkz - that was quoted from another individual, and as long as were throwing out ideas, an easy to use quoting feature in the message base would be a godsend, this threaded thing is just to hard to follow.

As to the rest, I still maintain that Sharecg has a very different business model than "most other sites", and as such should have a different type of security.  Sites like Rendo and Daz make there money from commercial packages and as such the ease with which their freebies are downloaded is pretty much a moot point, it's not their attraction to the public.

This site's ease of accessing freebies is exactly the point, the harder you make them to access more likely it is that new users will go elsewhere and new content providers will start looking elsewhere as well.  Much like a casino, they are not the only game in town for hosting, and much like a casino, people can always find a friendlier game.

This is pretty much my last post on the subject, I don't mind honest disagreement but when people start getting trite and snotty it's time to walk away.  I've given my ideas as requested, gotten nothing in return but a lot of static and honestly I'm just tired of going around in circles about it.

Since the site admins apparently have no wish to join the discussion or indicate any preference then I'll leave it up to them how they wish to proceed.

I'm guessing the owner's are propping their feet up, drinking a cold beer and watching the show while waiting for everyone to shut the heck up. What started as a discussion about ideas has turned into yet another nonproductive display of childishness on this site.

Just to be clear, we are silent on this issue intentionally: because we don't want to pollute the discourse with our own ideas, or which ideas we favor. We feel the best ideas from the community will come without our comment.

So, in short, we'll remain silent on the issue for a while longer. Then we'll hopefully take one of the ideas discussed here and make it into a reality.

Hopefully you shall, though I might point out that I would be surprised if you got much more useful discourse on the subject at this point.  The lack of moderation has allowed a rather hostile atmosphere to spring up here on the entire topic.

We've already had several comments from people just saying we should all shutup and let the admins handle it, which of course I found rather amazing considering that it was the admins themselves who asked for the ideas in the first place.

Then we have the difference of opinion that arose as to the best way to handle the situation, and again I don't mind an honest difference of opinion but the snottiness level has just gotten entirely too much for me personally.

So in short the idea factory here is closed to the public - if you'd like more of my thoughts or ideas feel free to send me a pm and I'll discuss them with you at length, but I honestly have better things to do with my time than endure cheap shots and snide comments from a hostile peanut gallery.  I gave what I had freely with no thought of reward or recognition and all I got in return was a lot of childish nonsense.  No thanks.  I doubt you'll find many others willing to discuss there ideas at this point either, not in this atmosphere.

Matrix, I didn't drag my situation in here ... you did. I kept it where was appropriate to discuss and kept it as anger towards myself and the government system that is poluted with cheaters and frauds. I could take a hell of a shot at you right now, but I won't. I think plenty of people here have your number already.

33 - I will not discuss this any further with you!

Well, great balls o' fire, can we get a recap on the idea front?  Whew.  Turn down the heat!  Or I can when my brain focusses back in.  

I'm still partial to the log in to download thing, it's no skin off of my teeth considering the site is very clearly marked and all, it's not like you're registering for yet another forum site, where it's often difficult to find the downloads, and just as often has limits on how the downloads are done.  

I'm not going to worry about taxes and that sort of thing, I'll look it up when tax time comes around and I've actually made money.  

A two tier system is an interesting concept, but I do believe there would be too many problems with it for it to work out.

Self policing for copyright is usually how I see sites run anyhow.  A report button is all you need.

Bots to catch bots:  works fine for other sites.  (Php.bb = I <3 U)

Verified pay pal is fine by me.  

Everything perfect?  Nope, never will be.  Everything works?  That's what I'm looking for.  :D 

I know I've missed stuff, but brain not working well.  What else we have?
