Post Download amount cheating
Seems like you can get views/downloads on stuff on the forum by just spamclicking the hyperlink to the attachment page... :rolleyes:

http://forum.generally-racers.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&p=77162#p77162

Look what i did to the download amount... 70 downloads.

(If there's some way to reset the download ammount, then PLEASE reset it ;) )

Then why did you click it that many times? :doh: :P

Just delete the attachment and upload it again to reset the count. ;)

I did to see if it would actually get more downloads... It did.

I deleted and reuploaded it ;)
(and clicked it three times to reset to the actual amount of downloads :misch: )

Since people can just cheat their downloads. I mean, like, they could say like "OMG LOOK AT HOW MUCH DOWNLOADS I HAVE!!!!".

It seems like a small bug that needs a small fix...

I guess Luke refers to the title I just found this... er... yeah... which won't help anyone to find your topic. Apart from that, I don't really think anyone's interested in "cheating" downloads :doh:

In this case success isn't as much measured by the number of downloads, but by the number of ToM/CoM votes... :shhh:
