That is a lie. I am not bothered to find it for you, but there is a forum reply by an admin saying that most money goes to you guys. It was a nice attempt though.
The money goes to the admins so they can pay for the free download server infrastructure, which of course isn't cheap. No one in ProMods is earning any sort of money from the paid download. I have been in ProMods for 5 years and have never received a single cent, because we do this as a hobby.

I like how much effort you put into being rude to your user
No one here has been rude to you, everyone so far has given you civil replies. You are the one swearing and being a smarta** to be honest. Respect is a two way street.

even though you are so busy with your oh so popular mod ;)
Here's a good example. The ironic thing is that we usually spend hours a day working on the mod, and people like ScuL and michaelmurfy have invested hours into improving the download infrastructure. Michaelmurfy was not part of the team until we got hacked once, and we needed better infrastructure and security. He has not asked for a cent this whole time. And yes, there is no denying that our mod is popular, we have almost 850,000 forum members.

Dude, it's really not that hard to be patient and follow the instructions on the download page and the help people have given you. If you had followed them the first time, you would be done and would be playing the mod instead of wasting your time complaining here and making a fool of yourself. Really not that hard...

When i am forced to sit and wait for an hour because of your limits and i can literally see that your servers are at 11% capacity, its a pretty obvious money grab.
I thank you in advance, for the future hosting of download servers for ProMods.
"1605MB" or about 1,7Gigs/download.
Could a mod answer how many download a single version of the mod?
And how many download it in the first 24hours of release?

By that ClumsyRL or some others might sponsor ProMods with free download servers?
Or help to add more bandwith to the current free download servers?

As it stands ProMods 2.42 has been downloaded 348,240 times from the free servers - that's 592,008GB or 578TB of data.

Hi mate, the two are actually unrelated. The Ad Blocker warning has nothing to do with the "downloading too many files" message. Are you trying to download more than 2 files at the same time?

Hi guys I have a problem again. About two weeks ago, I had problems with the free download server. Now, there is a slight improvement. I can download the files! However, it blocks me all the time when I try to download two files at the same time. This was the first problem. Second problem is that the files are wrongly formatted. They are formatted as the number of the file: .7z.004 instead of .004.7z. Can you at least format your files correctly please? I need help.
