Thread: Tired Of Fakes

  1. #1
    I have a dsl connection and 200 gig of storage. I'm tired of d/l fakes. How can we (the community) or just myself rename bad files so that the rest of use don't waste each others time and bandwidth?

    *spider sense tells me your a noob*

    Change the filename by finding the file (in my shared folder)
    Right click, Rename, give it its real name.

    Then in "my Kazaa lite" find the "fake" and right click then "edit details"
    and input the correct information.

    Why does anyone try.. to tell another person how to rename a FAKE file?
    If it's a FAKE just delete it! Or you are sharing the same fake file..

    Just DELETE THAT SHIT or unSHARE IT!

    I'm not new to file shareing. I'm barely computer literate. I have been changing the file names but still people try to d/l fakes from me. Instead of changing the file names should I just delete the file? I want to do my part to make p2p better. what's the best way to do this?

    I figured out how to "stop shareing".
    After I change the bogus file name and stop sharing
    when some one else runs a search do they see the info that i changed?

    No because you are not sharing it (a file has to be "shared" to allow others to see it).

    If your changing he details of a misleadingly named file that your keeping then just add a footnote in the desciption section in edit details (something like **not X-Men2 really Toy Story**). Keep the rest of the details intact so people searching for the file like you did will be able to see the ammended details.

    Because sometimes these fakes are legitamate files that have fake names...

    Remember when everyone was getting FightClub and Zoolander?

    Renaming them, means that people after that file have more sources....until you delete it for lack off space.


    You've spent all that time downloading it, you might as well get some 'feelgood' by sharing it, rather than just feeling lousy for wasting your time.

    ^^ What He Said ^^

    If ever I'm downloading from a verified sig, and the tags say that it's something else, (apart from re-naming it) all I do is edit details to include "This is NOT *insett fake filename here*"

    Now the uploads which are cancelled are more often than not, that sort of file, which suggests that some at least do read the file details in the pop-up box Problem being, renaming alone doesn't solve it because Kazaa does not recognise filename.

    I prefer just to delete the bogus file. Renaming it just causes more confusion. Kazaa is great, but fakes are going to ruin the network. The verifieds and the upcoming database will help sort things out.
