[obsolete] New Poll Regarding Mirrors. Please read!
since the results was like 91% (to keep mirrors) against 9% (to dismiss), the idea feels quite likely.
The overall noise around this thing is going on because:
- Contributors don't want anyone to post mirrors to their posts (for a well known reason...);
- I'm supporting mirrors because i don't want posts to die;
- now we decided to disable mirrors for Contributors only (you won't be able to post mirrors to Contributor's post), with condition that Contributors will keep their posts alive and reupload links themselves.
But, as i always said, AudioZ belongs to all of you, members;
so it's up to you to decide.
The current poll is a widget that i've got from a Poll Service Web-site, it's very well protected, so those who want to cheat and make multiple vote, won't be able to.
Simply choose your option, press Vote! and you'll be forwarded to another page with some text on russian and CAPTCHA - you know the drill, put those numbers in there and press the button.
Please participate in this poll!
results will rule the future of AudioZ.
my personal opinion on this matter:
We probably should remove the option to post mirrors to Contributor's posts.
Many of them buy stuff themselves, and expect to get the money back on downloads... I'm not saying it's a good thing to make money on uploads, but the fact is - this is what keeps them going.
Personally, I only care for the posts to stay alive. If they promise to provide link updates, then it's definitely Win/Win for both Members and Contributors.
and those who post mirrors, can still post them to other members posts.
