I cant see a question here.....
Anyway, SFS is a sharing site, not intended as a hosting site. I think there is a difference in privacy if its a hosting/storage site. Thats what I would imagine. SFS came about for simmers to share their stuff more easily and I love it. Much better than mediafire or mega. I have just about all of these accounts but only use sfs unless my file is too big, lol
So if theres a question im missing....ask away!

Thas very sad...
All the Stuff I made just for cherryblossom Members as Resident Artist is free for everyone who is not a Member here. Thats the reason why so many people can dowmload my Summer theme gift, which is not released here for our Members!
What the heck??

I tried to make it private. But than no one can download it...even if I share the download link, it doesn't work. I tested it few days ago. Thats frustraiting.

The only idea I have is, to create a cherryblossom Album in simfileshare, just open it for a week or so, and than make it private again. If anyone missed it, we can open it again for a few minutes. But that is very time consuming...

I dont see how they can download without a link, unless someone shares a link outside of here, such as a member sharing it with a friend?

But its not something I worry about, or i am concerned with. Tanja, your links are posted on sims catalog. I havent checked them all, but they do sometimes steal downloads, but maybe im missing the point of what were talking about here?, lol

Yes, I note that too, Lisa. I changed some of my Downloads, that people just download what I share, and not have to searching the catalog for the corect link. But I have so many, that it takes a lot of time to change them all.

But the summer theme gift I made for the forum is not in the catalog. And it has more than 150 Downloads. But here in the forum only the Resident Artists/Moderators can see it...before you give it free for all. How can it be?

Tanja I'm so sorry this has happened to you consol1 Unfortunately, this happens with Sims File Share, but having another site post your set before it has been released here, is shocking. I can understand why you are so upset.

I think that in future, the only way around this, is to upload the file almost on the day it was intended for. Maybe just post pictures first.

The only ones that have access to the file at this time are all staff, and I am quite sure no one would share it. That would be disrespectful to you and to this forum.

Looking for a new file host, is a good idea though.

I agree with Lorry just show the pictures first..then the day of release put the download button..

Also agree with Lorry about the staff..I know staff would never ever give out the download link..

They do it by going to a simsfileshare download and after downloading instead if exiting out of the tab, they change the numbers at the end of the post. I didn't realize this was a thing till I had asked in another group when there where several downloads on my "just starting out album" which has all my blender projects in it and I hadn't shared them with anyone. I spoke with sfs and they said they are aware that it happens unfortunately there is nothing they are able to do to prevent it other then suggesting that content that s not meant to be shared stay in a private album then moved to a public album when ready to be shared.

you click on the download and then there should be an option on the left hand side if I remember correctly to move the download to a different album. I now have a private and public album so I can switch mine back and forth.

I use only SimFileShare, and have just checked my files.
I do have files with high totals of downloads, but they had been in my profile for quite a while already.
My newest files shows only a few downloads.
I cannot say what my settings are, but I have never encountered the same problem you are all talking about.

I checked my summer gift again few minutes ago. Now its downloaded 283 times...and its not released yet for our members. That makes me a bit angry.
I pretty know, that none of our staff would give my links out. Thats for sure! I think its like Jennifer said. They changed the number and could dolwnload other stuff or something like that.

For the next gifts I just post pictures, and when Lisa give them open for all, I include the Download links.

I just don’t understand how, why and so many! I know no one here would share anything. It’s not a problem I’ve had with sfs, but even if someone changed the numbers in sfs, that’s still a lot of downloads! Is the dl number for real?

I do not understand that either, Lisa.
I can't explain it. I allways thought, that we can just download the link we share. And not all the others too. And I know that no one would share our links here! That must be an issue/problem at sfs.

When you all see some of your work on other sites or in someone else's houses and that cc wasn't released yet at that time..I would be questioning thing really hard..what is really going on..

What other places can be used for downloading..

I'm not worried about my cc..but am worried about all of yours..just trying to come up with a solution for you all..

As Jennifer stated, people just change the numbers in the url on a simsfileshare link...

...possibly people who "find" a cc treasure trove share the SFS link to their friends, who also end up sharing it.

...they probably believe whoever they give it to will only download for themselves and not do what they did, lol :(

...also, as mentioned, the only way to combat this is to check/uncheck private on an album.

I know that I have subfolders where I keep downloads for the public.

I believe the solution is to create a sub-album for download gifts and to keep it private until right before they are released to the public if one is using SFS...

...I know that when I provide someone access to something in Dropbox or OneDrive, I set it only to their email address.

That is an impractical solution for cc downloads, however.

~~~

I think the only thing to do is to:

A - Be happy so many people want our creations <3 <3 <3

B - See A, above :D



Thank you, Crissi, for my beautiful signature <3

Normally I have no problem with that. All CC on my tumblr is free for all to download. What I don't like is, that my CC here in the forum seems to be free for all too. But the stuff I make as Resident Artist should be just for Forum Members. Thats what it should be. I don't share/post my Resident Artist CC on my Tumblr.
