New Download Script + Limits
The download script has been rewritten to reduce server load and improve the speed of the site for the majority of genuine visitors. Changes include:
(a) Restricted maximum number of download connections per file to prevent excessive load caused by visitors using download managers
(b) Variable download limits based on server load
(c) Improved detection of VPN/Proxy Servers (as used by bots/crawlers/site scrapers). No downloads are permitted from these connections.
Due to abuse, use of a proxy server/VPN service to bypass site restrictions will lead to your account being automatically deleted without notice.
(d) Improved detection and blocking of visitors using more than one account to bypass download limits
(e) Reduced download limits for visitors on networks with high levels of abuse
(f) Download limits weighted according to member status/contribution level
