Forum: machinima Subject: Downloads counted?

Hi - quick question.

When you're counting downloads of the films, do the download counts include direct downloads from other sites? I ask because we're currently linking straight to the BloodSpell files (on www.archive.org/details/BloodSpell_Episode_3, for example, we're linking straight to http://www.archive.org/download/BloodSpell_Episode_3/BloodSpell_Episode_3_Large.avi and all the others from the BloodSpell page), and we're not seeing the download counter go up - I know for a fact more than 7 people have downloaded episode 3!

I'd really like to keep using the IA as our primary mirror, so any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

From what I understand, the download count here is only affected by click-throughs from the details page here.

Hmm, and in turn, damn. Ok, that's going to make things a little more complex.

Thanks.

I've noticed that some of your movies are not actually in the machinima collection, but in open source movies, so I'll correct that. Let's see if that changes anything.
