Sudden jumps in downoad

1. johnnyberg16 October 2010, 7:36 GMT +02:00

At the moment I am having some significant jumps in the number oif downloads; and just past the last ten hours I have had more than 200 downloads, I think. Muich more than I am used to. I am happy about it; but would also like to know if more of you get the same. I have a little trouble understanding it.

Me too... yesterday somebody downloaded many of my images (more than 500) and I had the impression that he/she went through my gallery and chose images that could be useful to him/her one day (like, making his own little image gallery).

Yep, over the night I had a huge increase... The same situation!

(I am impressed that you guys understood what I was writing. It was 7:36AM - and I hadn't been to bed when I wrote it :-)

Hmm, not for me, however...

Maybe I am not high enough up in the charts! : )

I'm wondering if they are using a program to download so many. It might be advisable to limit the number of downloads per day, as this might seem great for now, but they don't appear to be using the images in any normal way is they download so many. If I find my copyrighted images offered on other sites, I will pursue the matter.

@6 I agree. A limit is sensible.

They are not using the program in my opinion - because they make small pauses between each download - several seconds, maybe minute. It is a human pace, not a software pace, which would be much faster.

We do not know how they are using that images... A limit at sxc.hu (100 images per day) was all right. But I am not sure if we really need it.

I would have thought that, for the purposes our pictures are allowed to be used, that 100 a day would be more than ample. Maybe I'm not thinking it through, though. Would people need more? & what would they need them for?

I believe a cap on the number of daily downloads is a good idea.

@Fishmonk - I do not know. We should ask them. But, for example, some magazines need bigger amount of pictures daily. And different person is downloading them and different using - that means the choice is needed.

Looking at the download stats thumbnails today, I noticed that a lot of them were of Christmas subjects. I guess we should expect sharp increases at certain significant times of the year (Christmas, Easter, etc) but if the increases are of very varied subjects and during non-significant times of year then that's much more suspicious.
