Ability to have sharing profiles, organized by hub

Post by elcallio » 2003-01-27 15:56

It would be a really neat feature to be able to share different dir sets depending on which hub you connect to. Often I tend to connect to different hubs which demand that you only share a certain type of file (mucic - no video, video, no mp3 etc). It's a bitch changing this manually every time you wanna connect to a different hub.

Having share profiles for fav. hubs would be so sweet.

totally agree with u!
a list name place holder in the favorite hubs feature
so u could make several lists
MP3
VIDEO
APPZ
PORN
whatever
and then in any favorite hub simply call the list
in non favorite hubs the same general list would apply
right now u have to run a clone of DC to share different lists

Create a foolproof way to identify what hub a user's from, and it becomes possible.

Even thou I think that would be a good future, I really don’t think it should be implemented. Why?! Because it would make life easier to fakers…

I agree with you! But, if you have trouble with different hub sharing rules, you can use other clients with different share (file list) on. F. ex. use DC 2. U find it @ www.neo-modus.com. But it sure would be better if we just could use different file lists on the hubs we're on in the same client!

It would be nice; however, all that the other user sends is his nick. That's not enough to reliably distinguish between two hubs.

I suppose the only way is a change to the protocol, maybe make the client include hubinfo in a connection attempt? Alot of extra traffic though..

que?
what's is one small string compared to a rar set in data?
this is p2p traffic we're talking about, p2p traffic has never been an issue (except for GetZBlock perhaps)

Well having different nick names and different shares, the only way of detecting fake tags would be by IP...

I suppose you mean ppl that claim to be in one hub when they really are in more hubs. With a fake tag I agree, it would be impossible to detect them.. I can live with that!

Then let's get started, make the client include hub ip in every connection attempt. Should be enough right?

This idea kicks butt

I love it

At the moment I am forced to run 3 computers with 2 different clients on each to achieve this.

It also ties in with my request (another thread) to be able to save more than 1 favorite for each addey.

PS I am not faker. I can share stuff on private hubs that I have been chatted by my IP for sharing on public ones. I also run 3 hubs and op for others as well.

PS keep it simple

I should be able to pin a file list to a fav and hence an addey and tie it in with a nick.

That way you dont have to get more info sent.
