File Section Hot Downloads

Recommended Posts

Hi AvSim,

I have been a user of this site for many years but am fairly new to your forum.  I have noticed for some time that the 'Hot Files' pages in the files area always has a very consistent number of downloads for 'World of AI' files, so consistent in fact its obviously a bot that is downloading continuously to inflate there numbers.  This makes these pages fairly useless in identifying those files that are actually the hot files.  Maybe if for the purposes of counting downloads files it only counted the first time a user downloaded a file, or maybe count it once per IP address, it would make this section more useful.

Thanks for listening.

The best solution to getting something fixed is to go to the Library and click on "email the team". 

I have passed your info to the Staff, including the Library Staff and they may or may not respond.

Best regards,

Jim

Thanks Jim.  I have worked as a software engineer for several internet companies in the Silicon Valley/San Francisco area and have had some experience with counting clicks and figuring out which are valid and which are not.  Feel free to have the Library Staff contact me if they need ideas or help on how to implement this.
