No download weekend: Where it passed and where it failed
A REPORT OF SORTS
Alright, so we're now what most people would call 'knee-deep' into no-leech weekends. It is, currently, the biggest source of drama on the site. I want this to be something of a report on what's working and what isn't with this event, and tell basically everybody who's new here why we're doing things like we are. I have an idea or two on how to make things work more smoothly, but I really want feedback from the entire community on this. If you have an idea on how to improve the system we have, please, tell us. We at the forums here would really welcome the input.
REALITY AND WHERE WE ARE NOW
Bandwidth isn't free. It sucks, because for most of us we get this alongside many hundreds of other websites, 24/7, and to see one restrict features seems relatively unfair, as most of your other content lacks such restrictions. But at the heart of it, this website doesn't have the resources to let everyone download as much as they want, at least not until some old, rich monopoly guy with a heart of gold donates four grand. If you aren't said monopoly guy, the only ways to get you to pitch in, in exchange for downloading tons of content for free, is to post five messages on the boards of at least some quality, and more if you feel the need. this approach has positives and drawbacks, which I'll go over.
FAQ: It's pronounced 'Jay-jay-jacks'. It stands for Jingaling Jaxmont Jaxxon. It has nothing to do with the cool bionic arms guy from Mortal Kombat. I have normal meat arms like other normal humans, and I find it suspicious you're so curious about the composition of my limbs. My location is hidden because thousands of Kula clones are currently after me since I know the meaning of life. The meaning of life is live fast, die young, and fill half the screen with a giant beam super. Just FYI.
