Hi!

I've just added support for download counting. I've been able to look in the logs for a lot of the skins and update their download totals, however some I wasn't able to retrieve.

Here forth, every click will be counted live on the site :)

Oh and you can also sort by downloads now as well! ;)

Enjoy!

Cliff :)

to be honest, I don´t think it´s a good idea to make some pseudo-ranking with wrong or missing data...

Should I just reset all the downloads then?

the issue is that most skins have been released some time now and pretty much most people have downloaded them already, given that there are over a hundred skins people are not really gonna go back to the beginning and download them all again

the count is there now and its hard to categorise skins or the ones that are available, rating and date is pretty much all thats needed i think, altho the rating too on old skins will not be the same either

ahwell :)

Well its been requested for some time. I thought I'd fill in the details for the older skins by using my logs. I can't get the complete details as I don't have them.

I can

a) Leave it as it is
b) Reset all counters now
c) Remove download count

What will it be, I'll put up a vote.

Voting will last for 7 days.

Cliff :)

as nice as it is to say yea its had this many downloads, its not really worth it imo

I have always liked looking at download counts of stuff I have created but at the end of the day if only a handful of people get enjoyment out of using them then thats worth more than any count (unless your talking money lol) ;)
