    Because the filesharing section seems 2 be more and more active, I thought it was better to make a forum for it.
    This site was originally created to talk about filesharing, so why not show this section on the main page?

    There are currently 4 sub section:
    -BitTorrent
    -eDonkey & eMule
    -Kazaa Lite
    -SoulSeek

    maybe 1 or more section will be added in the future. (maybe a newsgroups section for example)


    If I notice most members prefer how it was before I will change it back.

    I dont think WinMX is that popular that it needs its own section, keep winMX stuff in the File Sharing sub section for now...

    I see. That's why the RIAA listed it as one of the P2P clients on it's hitlist, among eMule and BT.

    Fair enough, forget it.

    Temper temper

    I agree with Ike, there aren't enough WinMX topics posted per month to warrant having its own section.

    Still doesn't affect the board any in creating a section for it. Seeing as I'm one of the beta testers for the client, would be a good way to inform users of any updates / fixes etc.

    Just seems to me that people won't give it a try these days. I've been using it since the demise of Napster, and there hasn't been a song I haven't been able to dl.

    If I'm after an album, then sure I'll use SoulSeek, but for singles? WinMX beats all the competition hands down.

    That's not to say you can't post any advice you might have about the client, just do it in the general filesharing section. Even use Entity's [WinMX] tag idea to draw attention to it as a WinMX topic.

    Having a mostly empty section just looks plain ugly and wasteful.
