But i have a question about an upload i put in the poser section..It's a dress texture you can see here

http://www.sharecg.com/v/24728/poser/Textures-for-Nympth-Dress

My question is, is the download count playing up because it says iv'e had over 16 thousand people download them and this seems impossible to me..Not that i'm complaining but if there is an error could someone fix it for me pretty please..Wink

hmmm.....its only been viewed 714 times but has over 17000 downloads now...(BTW, when did ya'll add the download count?)

 All I can say Deni is that it is an absolutely gorgeous texture set and would definitely be one of the things here to get many hits! 

 I'm not any help am I?

WOW! I just checked it and its up to 20,908 downloads, but only 718 views.  It could be 20,908 attempts to download.  If someone is using a download manager that keeps retrying, it could be generating false downloads.  I checked my pages and the downloads seem closer to normal.  The full install of my program is about a 40% download rate, and the upgrade to 1.4 is only about 7%.  This sounds logigical because people would want to download the smaller file, but then realize that they need version 1.3 to make it work.  I think I need to bold the word Upgrade on the link. 

Is the over-inflated download numbers affecting a lot of people, or just Deny67?

I wouldn´t trust these numbers at all.

My most viewed upload has 875 viewings in six months but only 10 downloads...

Hi All ... we checked our system and it's working correctly.  But, we did discover an IP in Taiwan that was pinging us repeatedly.  We've blocked that IP and have had to zero out the hit meter on this account.  Thanks much  for bringing this up or we wouldn't have caught this.

I figured out why the Upgrade version of my software had such a low download pre view ratio.  The Upgrade version made it to "Pick of the day", but the Full Install did not.  People would link to it from the Home Page, and then realize they need a Full Install.  I guess that this proves that people do look at the Home Page, and winning an award can generate a lot more views.

I'm glad the problem is resolved.  I was tempted to start a pool, for when Deny67's file would reach 50,000 downloads.Wink
