    do you really think, forcing the user to make 5 posts before he can dl attachments is a good idea ?
    all it does is making people like me saying thank you in 5 posts, thats it. ... :confused2

    you could just post shit replies, but it can also make you look at different topics as well. Mind you, the only reason I joined is because I want to download "can't get you outta my head" by Kylie Minogue. I saw iot performed at a fiesta in spain.:p

    Okay, remember all the posts that were above? I just deleted them along with the user names. I can also ban them from ever using the boards again.

    Trust me, without the 5 post thing it would be a very boring web site.

    hey SDB, you're from the same area as me.. just thought it was worth noting, lol

    as for the 5 posts thing, i suppose it doesnt hurt.. stops people from using up ur bandwidth without contributing

    When I came across this site I thought the same as some of you. Waste of time and in fact was quite rude to John. I reluctanty began to post and within a few weeks I had posted an apology to John.
    This is a great site which has taken a lot of time and effort to get to the stage it is now. A lot people exchange quality midis here.

    If you can't be arsed joining in the visit www.musicrobot.com and troll the c**p there.

    Personally I did that for too long.

    This site kicks ass.

    Ronny.

    It actually seems to make a lot of sense. And why should you be allowed to download everything for free straight away - just think of the work that has gone into a lot of these midi files - they don't just appear.

    To be honest, we're lucky we can download them for free as it is!

    Keep up the good work I say.

    I actually think it's a good idea too. Not really for the fact that this site would be boring-Don't get me wrong -It's the best yet. But it's also a cool way 4 people to interact and switch files!(My opinon)

    well it does stop people from just coming here and leeching bandwidth, I think its a good idea for the site owners.... just a small inconvience for a great database :D

    OK - we're going to call this conversation quits as of now.
    As for junk posting - IT IS becoming a giant problem - the Mods will resort to deleting members and banning if it becomes necessary.

    p.s. No one is forcing anyone to try to download any file from MIDIBuddy. If you don't like it - go away!
