Hi everyone,

I noticed something strange about SFS today. As you might remember, we are still uploading old files to our blog, and I started this week with wallpapers. I uploaded all of them to SFS and linked about 10 every day to our blog. Now I noticed, that SFS shows Download numbers for files I didn't link so far. How can that be?

I had this happen to mine and was told that the numbers following your album or cc if changed will go to other peoples pages and basically allow others access to it. So basically someone started off on someone else's download, played around with the numbers in the url and eventually got to your post. Lucky for me it was just some skirt's I recolored and they still needed more work, I'm just starting so my stuff needs work as far as shadows lol so they didn't get a huge prize when they stole mine.

Edit* if your stuff goes in order they only have to change the last digit to get to your next download...

I have had this happen with all my lots, even before I have shared them with the forum.

I shared an old file from a WCIF, which 4 members have downloaded.....it's now up to 49!

Here are two screenshots from simfileshare's Tumblr that explain this issue:






Basically, because public links are sequentially numbered, all anyone has to do is change the number to find a download.

If you do not want this to happen, you have to make the file private.



Thank you, Crissi, for my beautiful signature <3
