I am thinking about hosting a file site just for debaters to host camp and personal files that would allow u to not have to use all that space on your HDs, if you are interested, and Cross-X would like to take part in this, I would be more than happy to make this site, and allow all the cross-xers to use this site for their personal debate information.

 

Its just an idea

How would it be any different from the multitude of file hosting sites that are already in use?

It would be only for debate files. Correct me if Im wrong here, K-dog.

That's not a real or significant difference. What's wrong with the existing services?

well the exclusivity to the debate community would keep it for debate files only.

 

aka not so much porn.

 

 

other than...*chuckles*...disaster porn.

 

:edit: that was a lame joke

What I mean is: how would this service differ from the other file hosting services? At MediaFire, you log in to your account, you can upload and download all you want with no restrictions, and you only have to see your own files. It's the same at pretty much all of the other places. The main difference is that when I uplaod a file to MediaFire, I know that I will be able to retrieve it later. I don't see how this person would be able to pay for the bandwidth and hosting costs for such a website without revenue generation. For example, just the books and articles the Critiques forum hosts at MediaFire account for about twnelve to fourteen gigabytes of bandwidth per month, and are backed up twice every day. If I were to uplaod all of my own debate files into MediaFire, it would be about fifteen gigabytes of data. So, to backup everything twice would be about forty-five gigabytes of data. That would start to eat up harddrives fast. I'm not clear what makes this person think that they can afford the storage space for this, let alone the bandwidth costs of uploading and downloading that much data.

i have a few hook ups, mainly i have a server from hell with enough storage space to back everything, and next, each person would be alotted a certain amount of space, say.....3 gigs. All Camp files would be set on the server for easy access in a main file directory for everyone to get into. They would be read only files until u saved a copy of it in ur own (so u can make changes or whatever). Next, this would be a lot different from things like mediafire, rapidshare, sendspace, it would be integrated filing so that everyone can get ahold of the ev, and as for cost of it, to host a domain and have bandwith enough to do this isnt all that much, it is actually more about server space than bandwith.

 

If you have any other questions, just ask

In the system you describe, it sounds great and like a useful resource.

 

I don't know if you have software in mind, but I can code in PHP decently well, so I'd be willing to help with whatever.

it is simple, and it can be done, i will purchase a domain for it and everyting this weekend, and put it up, if any1 has camp files they want to put up on it, would be most appreciated.

 

btw, I am no longer a debater, i graduated high school in may, i was just looking for a way to give back to the cross-x.com world.

 

Thanks guys, and good luck in 07-08
