News – Download Counter Fixed

A bug in the download counters has been fixed. From now on, all new files uploaded will have their downloads tabulated before they are sent to the mirror servers. Info on what this bug caused after the jump. The bug was in the download tabulation script, which runs every hour. (Yes, the download counters are not instant). Any file uploaded would not have any downloads counted, no matter what, until it had been sent to every full mirror server. Now, during the 'infancy' stage of a file, all downloads are counted. The only exception is during the mirror server synchronization period, downloads of a file may not be counted, depending on the mirror a user chooses. To celebrate, everyone's accounts get 500 MB of extra bandwidth! Have a great rest of the weekend :) Oct 4, 2008
