Poll 3: Sharing your bandwidth

How do you feel about helping distribute maps you have downloaded?

I would share bandwidth only while osu! is open and active.

I would be happy to share even while not playing osu! (idle at menu or systray icon).

I am strongly against sharing my bandwidth.

Wow thats alot. We really should get a server which can run from a bandwidthless environment.
awp
Yeah I don't think I can limit my distribution to a fixed value, so if I mirror, same old song and dance there. Over the limit, friends angry, server down
yaya
if i can help others , i'll do it .

We know that quite a number of people just delete the skins and videos in a map, so that they won't be disturbed and can get better scores. Such kind of people are mostly those good at this game, at the same time those who have more maps, so I think they will be the main point in this P2P system.
But as I've pointed out, if they've cut most of the skins and videos, there's only the .osu file remained to be uploaded.
So I suppose it's time that something should be done to encourage them to keep the skins and videos, maybe a mod called "no skin", just like the "no video".

Good Idea, a no skin option would certainly help. Or either just make it so ppl can't get a score on incomplete maps.

That won't be a problem: p2p will be released concurrently with osz2 (which doesn't allow the deletion of skins / custom hitsounds). There also won't be any no-skin version, however there will still be a no-video version available to download for low-bandwidth users.

We should share our bandwidth
I'd love to
Jeffro
I'm still wondering, how would this work for pending maps?
awp
could share just the audio file + any unchanged elements, and get the .osu files directly from the osu! server (as is now)

I'm happy to share when osu! is running.

I assume you say this because the feature in question is like torrenting, Yes?
Torrents ARE NOT illegal, its the content on them that is. In this case, yes it
would be legal.

I would be fine sharing bandwidth, I would go as far as to say I would share some
off my own website if such a thing could be managed, (Tho limiting that ammout
would be important) We never come anywhere close to what I pay for XD
Might as well try and get the moneys worth, ya?
