if that "guessing algorithm" is good enough for granting "Favorite Users" extra slots, then its good enough for granting "All Hub X Users" an extra slot.....

This means that if you have two different users on two different hubs, you might get into trouble.. As you can not easily figure out who of them is connecting to you. Nick1 is on your hub. There's a separate Nick1 on another hub. Should that other Nick1 also get the distribution hub auto-slot? How ...

what... there's a distinct difference. i dont care from what hub (that we're both in) somebody connects to me; as long as he's currently (also) online in my hub, he gets an extra slot.... how hard can it be? function bCanIGetASlot (NickName) if bInHub(MyHub, NickName) OR (bIsFavoriteUser (NickName) ...

Kinda like putting all users that enter that hub in your favorite users and auto granting them, and keeping track of who leaves, and revoking their autoslots...... can you have like a timer that every 5 minutes checks the userlist of one hub, and does "the thing" that autogrant does for favorite us...

I disagree.

I dont really care about what i share where, anybody can get the stuff I share.
Its about giving extra slots to some people, a feature already present in DC++, only I want to do it for an entire hub automaticly, instead of some users manually.

you got my vote! I *always* need to edit the search string. I DL lots of TV series episodes and somehow everybody renames them just a little bit, with or without episode name, season/episode written as S05E14 or 5x14 or 5.14, sometimes including what it was captured from, or what codec was used to e...

Well, no.. I dont have unlimited bandwidth... the point is to first get the new episodes out there as quickly as possible, that means giving high BW members that are known to share stuff as soon as they get it an extra advantage over people in other hubs, about who you dont know if they'll share, or...

The security agains ripping off would mean something like: A tells ratingserver "I just uploaded 10MB of this great new movie to B, for which B offered x points per 10MB, please give me x points from B" rating server asks B: "that true?" B could say: - yes thats true! all's well, A gets x point from...

Sorry for butting in as a newby, so long after the last update on this post, but I may have an idea on this.. What is to stop users from saying "If you let me download from you I'll credit you with double the upload points"? How about a quasi-central system (per hub or per hub-network or something) ...
