I have finally decided to make the top 10 downloads reset every week on monday. This will make the list a bit more varied I think, and a bit more interesting.
If you find any bugs or problems with it, let me know.
Also: new cars will not show up on the lists until 24h after being approved. This way, the files will immediately be available on public servers.
I am currently thinking of resetting the top downloads every once in a while.
Probably weekly, bi-weekly or monthly.
I have changed the counter also, it only counts one download per IP per car, so that makes cheating a bit harder.
Before I do so, Id like to hear your opinion on this subject!
Over the past few days there were some problems with the search engine. I have changed it a bit and fixed a few bugs and it is working fine now.
Also the brands & authors lists are working again.
Sorry about any inconvenience this might have caused you.
Let me know if you find any bugs or strange things.
Lately I noticed the large increase of offending posts and flamewars in the comments system of the site. This is a very bad thing. The amount of comments is too high to be checked all, so these things can easily get out of hand without us knowing about it.
If you find offensive or abusive comments, or people flaming eachother, please drop an email in my mailbox with the carname and model, the author and if possible the ID, so I can easily find it.
People enjoy making all kinds of cars, other people enjoy driving the cars. Theres an audience for every car on this site. If you dont like the car, dont download it. If you have useful comments (like: hey, it looks cool, but maybe you could have used a different frontbumper as this one is not very original anymore), feel free to post them, but keep in mind that many people will feel offended if you post something like this car ****s. It does not only offend the creator, it offends all hardworking car creators out there and it offends people who like those cars.
I have updated the rules of commenting, they should be clear now.
I hope I have made myself a bit clearer this way, but if this continues, I might as well trash the comments system like I had to do with the rating system, and I know you dont want that.
Greetings from a disappointed webmaster.
The car pictures section is finally back!
I have improved it a bit, it now has a brandslist, just like with the NFS cars. There is also an upload script, so you can upload beautiful car pictures yourself!
At the moment there are not many pictures in there, but I hope to add some more over the weekend and the next week, so if you have pictures of cars, feel free to upload them!
As a final step in the optimization of the site navigation, the car lists have been removed for the site. I wasnt planning on doing this at first, but it seemed to be causing a lot problems, resulting in database errors.
I think the list was not really needed anymore for the sites navigation, as there are brand lists, author lists and a search function to get you what you need.
This will hopefully solve all the problems we had with the database!
Well I moved to a new server for unlimited space!!!
Thanks to sander for helping me out with the server space problem i had on dfsspeed (my site os getting to big :) )

As part of the script optimization that I have been working on for a while, the Author & brands lists have now been replaced with faster scripts.
The new search engine is now also fully integrated, the links in the sidebar are all updated.
Let me know if you experience any problems or notice any bugs.
