Download section has been removed

Postby TRshady » Feb 18th, '12, 16:10

The Download section has been removed, an action I've debated a few times over the past few years. I hope you understand that it's all in line with wanting to get back to making TRshady what I originally set it out to be, a lasting, friendly community connected by being, or having been, an Eminem fan.

The recent news surrounding MegaUpload and many other sites that host, or simply link to copyrighted content brought this back to my attention. The truth is, I don't want to risk myself, the team or community by assisting in the illegal sharing of media. There are many, many places still where such links are available and I no longer want TRshady to be a source.

I'm aware much of the traffic here is for the Download section, but I don't believe this is a concern. Truth is, I'd rather have 20 active quality posters partaking in discussion than 100 who built up their posts simply to access the download section. It's never been about quantity, and the sites focus has always been an Eminem resource, a lasting documentation of Eminem's career - which I think it's done well and continues to do.

I'm ultimately responsible for the website and if I'm to commit my time to work on various projects, I want the comfort of knowing that I'm doing the right thing, I'm not here to assist in pirating. There's many places online that allow it, many who can support it and defend themselves, I'm not in a position where I can and want to. Thanks to all who contributed their time and efforts to the section.

Good question bigray, I'll clarify my position on this later but I fully expect new music to be mentioned, discussed and promoted so I'm not going to make it a rule explicitly against this scenario. There's always grey areas when it comes to these issues, I'm hoping a combination of common sense and good intention play a part here.

I love TRshady's download section man. When Eminem news is low u can find a gem of an artist / album (Emancipator for example) who would otherwise never have heard.

Could we then please allow linkin of the site to websites that have download links? E.g - HiphopNMore.

Preferably, youtube link section could be helpful given a significant number have access to Youtube downloaders

Sad to see it go, but as long as it helps the site to continue in its existence, I have no complaints.

Just saw the removal, thought it was just a rearrangement. Then found this topic.
The first question that raised up in my head was already asked by "bigray" and answered, so it's ok.


Last thing I wanna say is "Fuck SOPA" :)

The Download Requests section is still here and I figure that's still pretty illegal so I suggest removing that too.

Thanks for the responses and understanding guys, it's appreciated.

As for your question momentsgolden, I considered but it's a situation I wanted resolved promptly. Also, with the collapse of many file sharing websites like filesonic, many of the links would now fail anyway.

I never found myself using it anyway.

I think it would be common sense to do the file sharing privately, instead of in public anyway.
