Warn people who are downloading from you.

Post by sykopat » 2004-06-14 10:41

It would be great if there was a way to pm all of the users who were downloading from you simultaneously. So that if you have a fast connection and have say 20 people downloading from you at the same time you wouldn't have to contact them all in turn to say that you have to go offline for whatever reason.

I have no knowledge of programming or the DC protocol so I don't know if this is possible.

Please excuse me if this has been asked before. I wasn't really sure what to search for. :?

Unless you have a 10mbit connection (which most DC++ users do not) then you don't (should not) have 20 people downloading from you. Most only have a few slots open, which means its not hard to PM each one to tell them something. While it is curtious of you to PM those downloading from you, I don't think a mass PM feature is truely needed.

You can do this by user commands. They work in transferview.
