So, I've been hanging around pixelscrapper for a while (so I'm pretty familiar with the place). And I'm so so thankful for people like Marisa who are so generous to share all these goodies with us. I use stuff from this website (along with my own assets and papers), to create kits which I share as freebies on my blog (So I'm not earning any money with what I get from here).
The problem is that it happens more often than I like that I download an asset or paper from this site, and it marks it as downloaded, but nothing has actually happened, that is: the download was processed as "downloaded" on this site but the download never started in reality. (I just had that happen with two assets today). Or, on other occasions, the download starts but due to poor internet connection (something I'm plagued with and can't change) it will interrupt. I don't mind losing my credit points for the downloaded product, because I can always come back the next day, so I can live with that limitation. What really troubles me is the fact that once a product is marked as "downloaded" on my account, I don't get to get another chance to redownload an interrupted download, or download one that never actually started on my side (like those two lovely assets I was hoping to get today and now have lost forever). So more often than not, I don't dare to download a product at all, because my internet connection that day is so poor that I know I'll lose both the download and my right to try again, which makes me feel like I'm losing double! I understand that the Lerins' want to keep an eye on what's being downloaded how often each day, but this limitation of not being able to actually download what I was supposed to be allowed to download really is something that bugs me sometimes, esp. on days like today (because I'm not simply trying to take advantage of what's offered here, I take from here so that I can give away in return). So maybe there's something that could be worked out for cases where a download wasn't actually processed properly.
Here's a link to my blog, if you want to take a look at what I do with the stuff I get from here, btw:http://mistyhilltops.com
(And though unnecessary, I always give credit to pixelscrapper in the txt file I include in every download on my page, because I want to honor this place.)
