You have some very valid points but might it not be more appropriate to address them at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org or thereabouts? Well... yes. But... I hate registering.

I finally got off my lazy ass and decided to join bugzilla to put up some suggestions. After a few moments using it, here are some suggestions on bugzilla itself: I) An engineer made it.

No, they're for looking for specific content in file lists. This guy wants to find make (from my read) a "top 10 files downloaded" list for his hub.

This one's a tiny one. Would it be possible (if it is not already implemented) to have my favorites users match queued and checked for slots before all others?

I believe so, but I haven't looked at the code to reinforce that belief. There should be up to three slots used beyond what you have set up, but they will all be populated by file lists and other files with "Highest" priority. I believe it's touched on in the changelog, which is a bit unwieldy, but...

If you limit the number of your downloads using the setting, DC++ should only use three "download minislots" (for high priority files and file lists). Okay, that makes me slightly confused. If I limit my downloads to 3 slots only (thus only grabbing 3 files at once), then more file lists will be do...

No technical reason i think. But a practical one perhaps.

So you'd basically mash in the user information available in the right corner of the hub screen with the file information when looking at search results. Sounds like TMI to me.

Re: search intervals?

I propose somehow of putting a lock in the dc++client to tell you not to search. This will make it easier to know that the reason you are getting no results is because you have a search interval on you. Of course, if you continue to search your time interval rises. Maybe putting a option in advance...

Compatibility hashes would be cool, but since DC++ has become more CPU hungry in the recent versions, adding that to the workload does seem like a bad idea.

Pity everyone can't move to the same hash process, using the same algorithm though :(

Well, that's basically my point. Why not unify hash programs? "One hash to bind them all" and all that :)

It'd make it simpler to look for files across different networks, and maybe even allow DC++ to access them. Unless you want to keep DC++ closed. Which is also good. :)
