This thread should just be abandoned completely.
First let me say that I am not seeking anything. I have copies of the ISOs, but as per NJVC’s wishes, I will not be distributing them. I would like, however, to help if I can with the corner that this thread seems to have gotten itself backed into.
I would hope this thread could be salvaged, as NJVC put together something really cool and I think most of us would agree we’d like lots of people to be able to access those sets, so long as they aren’t bought or sold.
But right now the first post of this thread doesn’t give much help to those trying to acquire the projects. So what about adding a link to another thread or threads, where it would be appropriate to ask for help, in the first post?
I understand that the mushrooming bootleg issue has NJVC nervous. However, it seems like clamping down on the distribution of the ISO files will only really serve to drive people to those sales in greater numbers, since the genie is already out of the bottle. If people had a clearer place to get help, perhaps more would do so instead of buying $200 sets.
Maybe once there, they could ask for a little more help with how to find the sets as torrents, if NJVC is averse to them being available as file locker links. Plus they could do so without posting disruptive and repetitive requests. And after a few answers to FAQs are posted, users who take time to read instructions (theoretically) wouldn’t need to post at all.
As for people who ignore clearly posted protocol and/or are just out of line like the user that started calling names on page 54 of this thread, my only suggestion would be warnings and bans, as was suggested here.
