Downloads limit + Countdown


Recommended Posts

Hello Community,

I have configured the download limit for 24 hours. Every time the user exceeds this limit, they think that the next day they will be able to have their two downloads of the day again, when everyone in "Invision Community" knows that is not so. The user must wait exactly 24 hours to have the two downloads again.

This simple detail is not known to most users, despite giving informative guidance on this, users keep sending me messages about "Why can't I download if I have waited one day?
I am sure that I will keep receiving this type of messages all the time, especially from new users.

For this reason I would like to suggest that a "Countdown" be added so that the user can see the countdown and know how long it should take to finally download again.

Best Regards!

Hello,

It would be great if you develop it, such a plugin would be very useful. 😀

Regards!

Write the rules, specify that when they exceed the limit and from this time they can not download, at least users will know that the limit is worth it, and will not bother you that the limit is suspended, as a temporary solution, if the developers want to add the time tracking function (timer)😊

Just curious. Why limit it?

So that they don't download all the files in a single day and my server explodes.

You also generate activity on the site, making users return the next day to download again.

I have done that, but most do not read the warnings, especially new users.
They even think it is a bug on the website. 🤣

Here I agree with you that users do not read the rules much, then close the personal account so that they do not spam and on this page you must read the rules. I have rules written so that in category example Windows the only on topic windows and not more if there emerge message and limit respectively can be apply sanctions to this user, either as higher wrote to remove restriction on limit😀
