    The sister site is taking ages to approve new requests, like up to a week... was never like that before.

    Just curious thanks.

    They're busy in my kitchen, cooking my spaghetti and meatball dinner.
    They should be done soon and they'll get right back to you :)

    Some requests can't go up because even they will be DMCA'd.
    Some requests will go up for a bit and then get a takedown request.
    Some companies are constantly on the lookout for uploads and requests.
    That's what I can tell you from what I know.

    What was your request for, please?
    I may be able to shed some light on it for you.

    I dont know how you could DMCA a REQ as there is no copyright infringement happening there

    Shouldnt be possible

    If you copy the info from a website into the request info area then thats technically using something that is copyright by the website.

    I always get a message in such cases, which I didn't this time. So I'm not sure they've been processed at all, as I always received a message in such circumstances before. That would really p*** me off as I take a lot of time to research, submit theses requests, and there's no trace of it. I can't even remember which are still on hold, which causes me to resubmit them again. The whole process needs to be clarified, thanks.

    Please don't doubt me.
    I only talk from what I know about the sister site, from first-hand experience.
    Always best to talk from actual personal experience.

    The companies who instantly are on us to take down a product upload are not to be uploaded generally, including requests.
    That's all I can say on this.

    Tell me the requests. I can shed light on this, as I have already said.

    I can't remember, as I just pointed out! It's impossible to remember as it was more than one, and I submit these a lot (99% successfully) so it's not like I had a reason to note them down. There's no tracking history whatsoever on the user side. Maybe there's one on the admin side? In such cases it's easy, it's all the ones with my name on it.

    It qualifies as fair use, its an open discussion started about the product. something akin to crackwatch

    BUT if they leave out the copy pasted description, or just write their own, it cant go anywhere:)
    Users should be warned about this when creating the post

    ? Uh, no you didn't.
    Which implies you do still have all the details. Why not subtract what has already been posted, and there is our answer?!
    So, from all your research you mentioned, you still can't manage to remember any dev name that hasn't yet been posted?
    The thing is, I already know the situation here, which is why I wanted you to state the names of them, in which case then I can confirm if they are devs we can't post. Otherwise, I have to be silent.
    Hopefully that makes sense if you can read between the lines a bit.

    Nope. Not on a warez site!
    I will repeat myself with more detail and say that there is a list of devs that are too hot to post even requests, let alone products!

    Even if that would be the case (which as I'm pretty sure in most cases DMCA is not the reason, but more so that Olymoon is sleeping this week), how come then would we be supposed to know which requests are to be and not to be posted if we have no prior knowledge of what is and what is not to be posted LOL (that is, if you don't send a DMCA message as you always did before) - doesn't make sense from a purely logical standpoint.

    It's rhetorical btw, you can't obviously respond to that.

    You don't. They will probably just not be posted. Not your problem. Which is why I'm trying to help. And I tell the truth.
    You aren't. It's a warez site, dig?
    Doesn't effect uploading product to the sister site.
    We have certain others that deal with it.
    I don't understand this sentence. :dunno: What?
    No disrespect, but I'm not sure you understand logical thinking, as there are some obvious facts you are ignoring; not just missing.
    This is illogical to me.
    What? If you say "how come", then no, it's not rhetorical.
    Which is how come I obviously can respond to that.
    And you say you know logic?

    I'm not wrong about anything I've said, but obviously I don't know the reason why your requests haven't gone up, when others have.
    Interestingly, another member I was just talking to at the sister site said that he gets a message that he isn't allowed to post requests.
    So there may be more to this than I know about. Maybe, after the Peeplink problem, there are also other problems behind the scenes too. But I don't know.
    If you can't or won't tell me the products, just leave it, eh.

    Oh, btw. Last seen last night:

    Not that it matters.
    SAiNT and PiRAT deal with a lot of it.
    Probably PiRAT more so, I reckon.

    Although Oly is personally an uploader as well as a moderator.

    Thanks for proceeding I just saw one of my requests going through (so far no DMCA warning so you see it's nothing like that :)) - I guess you're just going very slowly right now, you must have set a certain process recently of slowing requests with a very restrictive daily/weekly (?) cap which I'm still trying to comprehend - but anyway, thank you, we're moving forward it seems.

    Great!
    What I said in comment #3 still stands, but that's good that you didn't choose a dev that gets taken down.
    Which is why I wanted to know which devs, so I could tell you if they were one of 'the ones'.
    Also, don't thank me! Thank PiRAT or SAiNT, probably.

    Yeah I do my best not to, based on what's being talked about, the messages I sometimes receive and on what's *not* available on the sister site by researching editors beforehand. But of course sometimes I won't be sure 100% and will take my chances :))
