Download counts more accurate

Hello friends, ckknight here.

Previously, we haven't been tracking Curse Client downloads as something that would increment our download counters. This has now been fixed so that every download on the Curse Client will properly increment the download counters now.

Already we're seeing a _dramatic_ increase of downloads. It's really a wonderful sight to see how many users are really downloading my addons.

Note than from one refresh to the next, the download counts might not update, as there is heavy caching in place, but every download is still counted.

In no way, shape, or form are we "faking" our numbers, we try to be as accurate as possible.

    How about incrementing counters on libraries that are downloaded as embeds in an addon? Just an idea that might reveal more accurately which libraries are used a lot and which aren't.

    Yes, Kallieen. But only on even Tuesdays that happen to be on a full moon. Note that Kaelten inadvertently loses his powers when this event occurs.

    Well..both our names do start with 'Ka' and end with 'en'....I guess someone could somehow get them confused.

    Is it just me or does it seem like blackmoses has mistaken Kallieen with Kaelten ?

    Still waiting for someone to come up with that 4Gb/s host for $30/month.

    Hey, personally I don't care if the entire World of Warcraft subscriber base is pissed off. One, two, twenty, or 3 million pissed off people.

    This is very well self evident, however if Curse Inc. & associated corporations are pimping out your hard work and labor without you taking a decent cut of annual revenue they make a year, I really dont know why youre so eager to jump to their defense over potentially thousands or millions of very upset players who didnt need need for this to happen on a patch day.

    If you don't care, that's fine. But if the Corporation wants to eliminate a product that works to leave us with their piece of crap in order to maintain a monopoly (not to mention screw all the mac users) then you're not the person I should be pissed off at.

    What I am pissed of about is the cheerleading that's going on for a corporation that couldn't give a crap about anyone- the end user, or even you developers who actually care about people's game play.

    So be it, I'm out of here.
