    From the looks of it they have a user by the name of sampa1 (http://www.projectw.org/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=121932) who generally uploads to rapidshare, but he discovered a few of our sites and I've found links to our stuff on their site.

    ex: http://www.projectw.org/viewtopic.php?t=234707

    Now I wouldn't personally mind if they were giving back but they aren't so I do mind. A few of them signed up for my site and I gave 2 access to the secret forum because they said they wanted to upload, so I'm giving them a trial :squint: Feel free to throw in your 2 cents: http://www.axioentertainment.com/forum/showthread.php?p=12801

    Yeah I hope the users here aren't spreading the sites we use around. Too bad we can't put a sticky up saying not too :squintd:

    Some of them PM'd me and IM'd me and they don't sound that bad but some who signed up are clearly leeches who are there only because we've pass protected sites.

    One of them has a 30 gig collection and others have about the same size. So I laid out some basic rules: http://www.axioentertainment.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1144

    If someone is genuine I don't have a problem with them downloading and giving back, do you guys feel the same?

    Example of a PM I got:
    Generally what I sent back:
    Fair enough?

    I've been keeping an eye on my stat log to see where most links are coming from for that forum and most are from ProjectW or direct links (probably people talking on AIM)

    I think that is an excellent way to deal with this.

    http://www.kaskus.com/ The least we can do is scour their threads and upload what they have and put it on OT's FTP sites.

    They seem to be using rapidshare/etc like we were when all this started out. About 40 of them signed up and so far only 3 have earned their way into the secret section. I'm keeping an eye on their forums to make sure the pws aren't leaked :)

    I'm watching the projectw forums for the same thing

    I replied to someone who was asking what the passwords were and explained how we were a private ring, and suggested that if they were tired of rapidshare that they should start something up like we have

    Would it be evil to admit that I'm trying to pinch away their heavy contributors? for our own personal gain? :o

    Hell no, that's exactly what we want, and probably what the good contributors want too. After all they're probably sick of being the only ones that give back. Building a good community is all about having the best people.

    Out of the 60 or so who signed up I've given the following access so far

    sampa1: very heavy contributor on other forums
    el hombre invisible: this dude literally writes books in a thread
    Daqwolf: 50 gigs to share
    scottfree: 40 gigs to share
    ONEz: didn't specify amount but he is also a heavy contributor on other forums
    lithium: has already started uploading
    Scyles: another guy who really knows his stuff

    Keep an eye on the other forums to make sure there are no leaks :)

    Man, I gotta say I haven't been keeping track on the other forums, but sounds like Axio has lined up a bunch of pretty solid guys. Never hurts to have a few more sources kicking around. We all seem to have a pretty good group for the main sites, but the more people in the scene the more good stuff that you never even saw coming shows up. :bigthumb:

    yikes, I don't remember much about dreamhost, but if you PM me your dreamhost panel username/pass I can prob figure it out

    axiomotion was hit pretty hard also, so I capped the bw on it

    changed the axiomotion uploads to comics, same user/pass

    I already set it up for him :o

    I would move all the files into a new folder and PW protect that as well, but I'll leave that to him to decide :)
