    Just an idea, not sure if its good to implement.

    BHW Should have its own File Upload/Download Facility. It should be made the only allowed file sharing site on BHW.

    All zip files can be locked with "blackhatworld.com" password, so if others try to leech and repost the stuff from BHW, people will know that the source is BHW.

    I'm sure This way, the forum would make some extra money from advertizing and may be they can use it on better servers?:)

    I'd like to hear your views on this.

    I think this is an expensive ideea and not that legal because they will host users files including copyrighted material.

    Anyway, another ideea for this will be to permit direct linking just from bhw and ban everything else. So this way if you want to download the file you just have to be refered by this forum only.

    Dont think it would be worth the risk ... If it was a few years back then i would of said yeah but laws are tightening up on file uploads :(

    Could lose the forum altogether then see and that would be the worst outcome!

    I dont think its worth the risk personally, would bring far to much attention to BHW. Its doing good as it is :)

    Definitely not a good idea. It will increase expenses/headaches.

    In my opinion it's not a good idea.because BHW already has some server problem and it's now very slow. :(
