  1. A call for donations

    You do enough with LostYears as it is, lol. I don't want to saddle you with any further responsibility than you can handle.
  2. A call for donations

    Actually you can send proof of donation to me as well. Both @Renzourin and I have the ability to adjust your usergroup to the Donator's group once we have that proof. Double the manpower I say!
  3. @Ryutai this is sort of a gray area, I realize. In most cases it's probably OK, but do realize the whole "trusted site" thing is still going to come into play here. If the source code for a piece of software isn't available, we might draw exceptions if you link to the company's website who made the program in question, or if a link is found on, say, Reddit, we might draw an exception if it came with a report from an online scanner. You could for example include a report from VirusTotal showing a completely clean file. I've not yet made any determination on whether to actually include that language. The key thing we're trying to avoid is directly linking the download links. Very good question, thank you. @Ryutai I'll probably expand upon that in a later revision, but the idea I'm probably going to go with is if we know the program you're recommending/referencing + we know the company/people who made it + we know the site you can OFFICIALLY get it from, then we'll ease the restrictions for it. It'll probably be a case-by-case thing if we do that. Remember these rules were more geared towards members who choose to write their own programs, than just software downloads in general. @sfaxt the rules are more geared towards programs made by members here, but in general we'd prefer software be available as open-source anyway regardless of who made it. As for sites like Filehippo, Softpedia, Majorgeeks...I could say these would be acceptable so long as the software in question is actually linked there by the company who made it - as in, their "official" download host is one of those types of sites - but otherwise if just directly linked there, not allowed. And yes, I might be willing to add an exclusion for those programs that have a 100% clean VirusTotal report attached. Thanks for the question.

  6. Kametsu is now on Discord!

    Thanks for the information. I'll see if this is something we can work into the forum somehow. I've also pushed your Discord account level on the server to match your usergroup here.
  7. xdelta3 GUI 2.0 (v2.0.8) - A patch maker for all!

    @Moodkiller I might take and make some code tweaks myself later. I'll coordinate with you on that.
  8. Where to put live action threads

    As @Catar mentioned, the Live Action section is where Live Action links should go. These are more liable to fall into bad hands which is why the VIP section is the only place that subforum exists for content distro. My suggestion, if/when you do start throwing your stuff up on the board, just throw it in the VIP area as we usually do for Live Action stuff. You can then reassess after a while of doing that. You could think of it as taking a few steps in and testing the water first.
  9. NOTICE: I'm going to be running some software upgrades on the Kametsu server shortly. This will probably interrupt connectivity to the site for a bit. Be patient with me, shouldn't take too long.

  10. Recommended download manager?

    Side note: @chumxeed please make your posts relevant to the topic from now on. I split your post into *this* thread which is more appropriate for the discussion. Try not to clutter a release thread like you previously did with off-topic posts. Thank you.
  11. [NOMINATIONS] Anime of Fall 2017

    It's alright @NeutralHatred, you can redeem yourself. I counted the rest of tonight's nominations, and I'll be proceeding to pass the hell out 'cause I won't be here to update the thread at all Saturday. You can do that for me. Just keep the format I have going, mark the nominations you've counted with a 'Thanks' reaction so I know where you are with them, and that's that. @Catar if you could give him a hand with it too when you have opportunities to. Same thing. Thanks.
  12. [NOMINATIONS] Anime of Fall 2017

    Just FYI if I'm giving you the Thanks reaction on your post here, that means I counted your nomination. It's a way for me to keep track of things. Figured I'd let you all know.
  13. I'll be brief. Due to the constant and ever-increasing threat of viruses and other malicious entities (ransomware comes to mind, especially), we have decided to set new ground rules for this forum regarding the sharing and posting of programs. These rules are extremely important and zero-tolerance - no exceptions will be made for new posts going forward. The rules are as follows: All programs you want to share with the community must be open-source. This means the entire source code to the program must be made public, free-of-charge. No closed-source or proprietary/paid programs will be accepted. If the program is intended to and/or can run on Windows, then the source code repository you use (such as GitHub or similar) must include a release download to the actual program, contained within a ZIP file or similar compressed archive format. If it's Linux-only, ensure you have a source code release download available in a tarball-type format (like *.tar.gz and some such). DO NOT DIRECT-LINK EXECUTABLES (.exe) FILES ANYWHERE! LINK THE SOURCE CODE PAGE INSTEAD! Regarding the above: Do not host files anywhere that isn't trusted. Filesharing hosts are NOT considered trusted. You must host on a source code repository service such as GitHub or similar. FOR WINDOWS PROGRAMS: You MUST include BOTH a CRC32 *AND* an MD5 hash for the .exe file itself with your post, and these hashes MUST match those of the .exe file contained within the release download archive from the source code repository. If any of these rules are violated, then at the very least the post is likely to be removed and the user who posted it may very possibly be warned. We are taking this stance to better protect our users from potentially malicious programs. We appreciate your cooperation. If you have any suggestions or concerns, please feel free to post here.
  14. Once again we are fast approaching the point where another season in anime ends. As the Fall 2017 season technically isn't QUITE done yet, nominations are not YET beginning until the New Year, I'm basically just getting a jump on this thread before I get bogged down in real life stuff. Same rules as before: Each user may only nominate one show Nominations period is 1 week, starting from the day this thread opens up. Nominations will run from January 1st thru January 8th. The thread will lock automatically on January 8th at 6:00 AM CST (GMT-6). The poll will be created and opened at 10:00 AM CST (GMT-6) the same day. I will update this post as necessary as nominations come in. For reference, the Fall 2017 chart is located here - please check this chart before nominating a show in this thread, as it needs to come from the Fall 2017 season.

  15. Be warned. I'm NOT in the mood for childish antics. I see it, I'm gonna start slapping people silly. That is all. Merry Christmas.
