Hey, I know the forums are just starting to take off, but I'd like to make a suggestion. It would be nice to have a section here where members can request ebooks and software that are not already in the main site. That way, everyone can help in sourcing out the ebook or software in question, instead of just depending on the webmaster to look for it on the web. Just my two cents. :wink:

That's a pretty good suggestion, qingfisher! I'll add a forum for this purpose shortly. Thanks for the cool idea! 8)

In addition to the requests section, perhaps another section can be set up where members can share links to ebooks and software that they've uploaded to file sharing services such as Rapidshare and MegaUpload. I've accumulated several gigabytes of such files on my hard drive and I'd be interested in sharing these with others on the forums. :)

Just be careful not to share anything that's copyrighted, shamanick. You can get the forums in trouble if you do.

Okay, qingfisher, just finished setting up the Download Requests and Shares forum. :)

As for what qingfisher said, shamanick, that's true. I think I'll need to write up a FAQ of sorts for the requests forum to prevent the sharing of copyrighted material on the forums. Besides, I believe there's more than enough stuff in the public domain to keep us all happy for a very long time. :wink:

Looks good, Sirius! I'll take to heart what you and qingfisher said and sort through what I have on my hard drive before I upload anything so that I don't get anyone in hot water. :lol:
