Why am I forced to use this system instead of just downloading files?
Bandwidth costs money. When the mass download feature was in full effect, the site could use upto 1000GB of bandwidth in a single day. Neither the server, nor our wallets could handle that. This is why now you can download full albums if you give something back to the site.
Don't you get enough money from ads displayed on the site?
Nowhere even near. This site can use upto 1000 GBs of bandwidth PER DAY. That's a lot of money as well. The ads, on the other hand, simply don't get clicked. I guess people who come to a site to download stuff for free aren't interested in buying things from advertisers.
How does this work?
To download albums in full, you need to give back something to the site. You can do this in two ways - by donating or by referring people to the site. You register, get your own link, give the link to other people, they click on it, you can download zipped albums.
What is my link?
You get your link after you register, and you can view it in your User CP!
How many people need to click on my link until I can download an album?
For every 1 visitor that clicks your link, you will be able to mass download 1 album. Albums that you have selected as mass downloads will appear in your User CP under "My Albums". From there on, you will be able to download this album at any time.
How do I get people to click on my link?
Some of the ways are:
- Open up your MSN/AIM/ICQ/etc messenger and pass the link on to some of your friends.
- If you have a MySpace, Bebo or other friends site profile, link to KH Downloads from there!
- Email the link out to your friends at work/school/university
- If you participate in any forums, put the link in your forums signature
- If you have a website, or a blog, link to KH Downloads with your URL
- Submit the link to submission sites.
What if I want to give my friend a link to a specific album, such as Need for Speed Underground 2?
You can add your referral at the end of any URL, all you need to do is add "?u=xxx" where xxx is your userid. So the full URL to that album where you will get credited for the referral is http://downloads.khinsider.com/game-soundtracks/album/need-for-speed-underground-2?u=xxx
I don't want to use the referral system, is there another way I can get full albums?
Donations are more than welcome to help with the server costs.
$19.99 for 6 months seems expensive!
That comes out $3.33 per month, that's about as low as you can go. Save a burger, help us instead of helping your fat.
If I donate, how long will it be until I can download?
It's an automatic process, so you'll be able to download immediately.
I donated, but can't download!
This could be because
1. You paid with an eCheck. If you do that, you will have to wait a few days until PayPal clears the check.
2. You didn't return back to our website after donating. Don't worry! You just have to wait a few hours and your account will be automatically updated. If its not updated within a day, send me a private message on the forums and I'll sort it out for you.
