New Filearchive Feature
Posted by Eric on 10 March 2001, 20:00 GMT

In an attempt to address the approximately 8932798235 people that email us wondering when their program is going to be posted to our archives, we've added a little new feature that will let authors know roughly how long their file will be in the pending queue.

On both our File Upload Form and our older File Claim Form, you will now be able to see if our current pending queue is low, moderate, or heavy. Hopefully this will let all our authors (and there are many) breathe a little easier when it sometimes takes a little while for their file to be posted.

Are there really approximately three billion people more than the earth's population sending e-mails?

For all the people who posted above asking for real numbers, it may be within ticalc's powere but wouldn't be very good. In one second the number of pending files could change 20 times or more. So by the time you see the number it could become inaccurate. I think the low, moderate, and heavy is system is just right.

Would it be difficult to add a feature that would automatically email the author telling them when their files have been uploaded?

that would be the way to go.

Yes ! This is really more interesting.
I don't think that low/moderate/heavy is accurate enough but more information like the place of each program in the queue would be harder to set up.

I do agree that exactly what number in line your program is in would be nice, but we have to remember the reason that we pay these ppl:)... that is to process our games to make this webpage the best for all users. While they are making a counting system they could process tons of games, and if ppl would stop emailing them about when their games will get into the archives they could do a ton more. Thats my ten and a half pence

How long will it take for a program to be posted with a HEAVY status.
