Thread: Missing P2p Networks

  1. #1
    Overviewing the new sections I noticed that Direct Connect and Newsgroups are 'missing' from this subforum.

    If you look at the 'big' p2p-networks currently having a section, those are:
    -Kazaa (Fasttrack network)
    -Edonkey
    -Bittorrent
    -IRC
    -SoulSeek

    and in my opinion also:
    -Direct Connect
    -Gnutella
    -Newsgroups

    Gnutella is partly covered in 'Shareaza' but that also includes Edonkey and Bittorrent.

    I think it's best to either divide this section in either the networks OR the p2p apps. Seems more logical to me.

    Let's hear what you guys think...

    personally, i'd like for newsgroups to have a sub-section, but not a lot of people use them currently due to the low (if not non-existent) free binary support

    Well, that&#39;s the problem with Newsgroups. The best servers are often the ones you have to pay for, but if you got a good one it&#39;s the fastest way to get the newest releases.

    I dunno about Soulseek becuase I&#39;ve never used it, but Shareaza is a very advanced program and growing really fast which is why it has its own forum, and it can&#39;t be put into one network forum because it conects to four networks.

    But it isn&#39;t the best in neither of the networks it connects too.
    Also in itself it isn&#39;t a network.

    Since it&#39;s pinned I&#39;ve put some more thought into it and if we want to be REALLY comprehensive then I propose the following structure

    Filesharing Networks, Clients & Tools
    ***|
    ***|--&#62;Bittorrent
    ***|******|--&#62;Original Client
    ***|******|--&#62;Shadow&#39;s
    ***|******|--&#62;Azureus
    ***|******|--&#62;Etc.
    ***|
    ***|--&#62;Direct Connect
    ***|******|--&#62;NMDC
    ***|******|--&#62;DC++
    ***|
    ***|--&#62;E-donkey
    ***|******|--&#62;Ed2k
    ***|******|--&#62;E-Mule
    ***|******|--&#62;Etc.
    ***|
    ***|--&#62;Etc.

    However that may be a bit too comprehensive and might fragment the forum too much.
    Also for example Shareaza would come back in 4 forums.
    But I do feel that would be the best solution.

    Either that or sort by network and possibly use pinned topics for the different clients.

    Other P2P Programs

    Any more opinions or is this a typical &#39;couldn&#39;t care less&#39; topic?

    why not leave as is ? in the other p2p file sharing progs forum we already have some threads about dc++ . I find that they are good when kept there as there arent that many topics about dc++ , splitting it up and making another forum is a bit exagerated as we already have so many forums for each p2p network
    Open your mind
