Swift's "A Modest Proposal"

Post by Leviathann » 2006-01-10 17:48

Not really. But here's a list of proposals for DC++ instead:

- A new column (and therefore ability to sort) downloads by percentage of their completion.

- Sorting of Favorites!!!

- "Search" button placed next to "Purge" in the search window instead of being lost and inaccessible way, way, way, waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay down there, at the very bottom of the window.

- An ability to "clean" the download list of duplicate downloads (probably by finding identical hashes), and of downloads whose hashes are detected in the share (added something to the list, got it elsewhere, put it in shares, forgot it's still on the download list...)

- Some sort of expansion of the currently very primitive system of Favorites - e.g. ability to create subdirectories/categories and moving hubs into them... (and sorting them, which I mentioned)

- Perhaps some system of permanently remembering file sources (backing them up in a separate file?) - a cure for that infuriating "No users to download" problem, with sources disappearing for no reason...

- Perhaps some sort of window search? (E.g. search the user list, search favorites, downloads... of course one can do it by looking at the files, but still...)

It is true that users with fatal errors will not be saved in the queue when DC++ exits. However, if they become a viable source in the future, autosearch will find them.

You do realise this would break the way favorite hubs work? (Hubs that have autoconnect enabled are connected accordingly to their position.)
