View Full Version : Those That Don't Share !

:rolleyes: I'm sharing 51gb or so of files at the moment and think this is a fair amount. I am also running as a super-node so consider myself as a genuine participant with the wonderful Kazaa and all those who are connected. My question is this.......Is there any way in which I can allow uploads only to those who are shareing a minimum amount of files and not to those selfish, self-centered ones out there who just grab grab grab n log off, without me having to manually cancel their uploads.????? :angry:

Y'know, in newer versions of K++ you can prevent other users from geting a list of your shared files, so even users who share will appire as non-shering leechers, this is a counter measure targeted on RIAA and so on. User names aren't also unique so it's quite hard (read: imposible) to make a banned user list.
Prabobly there isn't a way of doing so.

ThanX for replying friend.......I just wish I was able to write a program that would cancel out sneaks. I appreciate that the newer Zazaa has file hidden capabilities but I wonder how many people out there would cut me off as I have been doing to them....Maybe I will just let anyone have what they want wheather they're fair or not.

or you could switch over to soulseek where you can ban users who don't share.

On the other hand you COULD write a program which would cut-off users with a certian Participation Level ( 1, 100 whatever, you name it) . It won't cut-off all leachers (K++ can set your PL on the highest level which is 1000), but you'll deal with a fair amout of 'em though.
