I hope that new feature will not make authors who want to upload their software give up :)

What i fear is: author will try to validate his email acctount, and sometime it will be in spam box, sometime it will forgotten or skipped, and authors will give up to upload it on os4depot. They even give up to upload sometime as it was before, i fear it will be now even more problematic for them.

I personally _never_ recieve any single mail from os4depot admins, when somebody want to replace my file, or i want to replace other file. Probably there can be problems with validating an account too.

Only uploader will valide any email address he will create for (and never will check it) :)

There have never been "accounts" on os4depot. There's a lot misinformation on how moderation on OS4Depot works and it would be nice if people stopped creating their on personal (un)reality around this issue and instead just asked me how it works.

Anyway, people doesn't seem to want anonymous uploads on OS4Depot and this is the result.

Either people accept anonymous uploads or people accept more control. There can't be both.

Do your uploads have passwords? I'm pretty sure that's the only time you'd get an e-mail, and I don't think that's automated either. So I think if you forgot the password, left it blank but otherwise it looked like the same uploader to the admins, it'd be let through.

Ocassionally I've replaced other people's files. I contact the previous uploader if I can, but I don't inform anyone at OS4Depot. The unwritten rule I use is that if I replace someone else's upload/port, then it must be at least as good as the previous version (and if that isn't possible for some reason, the previous version is bundled).

It's a bloody good job M$ don't use that rule, They'd have to bundle 40 years of products...

OS4Depot contact the previous uploader if somebody tries to replace their file.

I figured that would only be if there was a password. Not sure. In any case, I prefer to contact them myself so they know what to expect. It does depend on what it is though, and whether I'd be replacing something that someone else usually uploads. Not something I do often anyway.

@Severin

You don't agree with my rule? :) Not that you have to! MS is rushing out improperly tested updates lately.

So far it just seems to be kas1e who is objecting? Anyway, IMHO too early to know whether this new system will mostly work (or not).

@kas1e
You seem to know a lot about the mysterious Uploader
