For the sake of our team… – new features comming up

Our Support Team might become affected by a serious nervous breakdown when they have to read more questions like “Where is the Registration link?” or “How can I create an Account?”. For the sake of their mental health we are forced to reveal a little sneak peak of what we are currently working on: ;-)

We are currently on the finish straight and expect to release the new and polished features pretty soon. People who comment on this blog post will be given the chance to betatest the new features (and grab the most appealing usernames of course :) ) so let us know what You think. New feature request are of course also welcome. We can’t promise they will be added for the initial release but we do tend to listen to our users will.

    PLEASE do not turn this into some shitty ‘anti-waiting company’ like rapidshare. This is the best filesharing website by far !!!

    Edit by Admin:
    No worry, we don’t have any plans to introduce any kind of premium(paid) functionalities.

    Yeah please don’t enforce arbitrary waiting times which serve no purpose than to make people hate that file hoster, this is the absolute best hosting site, its compact, efficient and really fast!

    I love this site so much, too :) I have several files from this site shared by others.

    Finally, my fav file sharer comes with a Personal File Manager! Just what was needed to stand out of the crowd, especially the famous one like M#*@afire.com or R@*#$share.com where they offer such things only with PAID options. A very Bold yet Enterprising move! Congratz and keep it up!

    I want to be a betatester. Hope the files i move into a folder will only show in the ‘moved-to’ folder – not in the main/root-folder.
    @ Megaupload it isnt so – and it sucks. Its not realy clean if u upload 1000 files, and they are double in the foldersystem.
    Hope you understand what i mean – if not – ask me ;)

    Admin:
    Well thats quite some idiocy provided by megaupload. We wouldn’t do such crap :)

    I’d like to be a betatester and if it wasn’t already suggested/implemented in non-register version I’d like to make a little suggestion:

    Permalinks to files. The only reason I’m using Dropbox yet is that they provide permalinks to files, precisely mp3s. I am indie flash game maker (I didn’t released anything good yet, though) and I usually stream music to make SWF file smaller so people which will play my game (Adventure Cavern is it’s name) won’t have to wait 5 hours for game loading.

    I have my own site, but my host has very strict policy against streaming media (no matter if it’s copyrighted or not – I using only legal material, though), so I can’t put it on my server.

    Admin:
    “Permalinks to files” – Sorry, we can’t do that :-(
    However You can hotlink encoded files:
    http://wwwXX.zippyshare.com/downloadmusic?key=1234567890
    http://wwwXX.zippyshare.com/scaled/1234567890/file.html
    etc.

    Sry this is maybe the wrong place for that but my Norton Security Software tells me that ZippyUploader is a middle-risk.
    Code: WS.Reputation.1
    Is this a false alarm? Thanks = )

    PS: Still waiting for beta invite :))

    Admin:
    ZippyUploader is completly safe. At least when it’s downloaded from our site. Beta is not live at the moment. It will be almost certain till the end of the month (but we hope to get it done more quickly). Everyone posting here will be invited. Also everyone following us on twitter will get an invite.

    The idea is a great one, AS LONG AS you don’t start imposing limits per account (other than the file limit that already exists of course). Zippyshare is my favorite because of 3 reasons:
    1. It’s FAST
    2. There is NO time-to-wait
    3. There is NO captcha

    As long as these 3 features do not change, you’re my #1.

    Totally agree with Ray.
    You, dear Zippies, are our favourites since you’re fast (have been always downloading at max speed) and easy to use. I would love to still have you a looong time. :)

    Hey guys, this is awesome!, long time ago i have talking to my friends that zippyshare is better place for mp3 sharing, due to faster preview with high quality compared to foes, and most unique characteristic: one click to download! it already make zippyshare better; now is give us a file manager; put others on the floor!

    Best file upload site by far, the only thing missing was a tracker to tell you the plays, downloads etc. So keep up the good work guys :D

    Admin:
    Realtime calculated stats (views/previews/downloads) are already implemented for a every single file, and overall for a whole account. Currently without referrals and geolocation, but appropriate task is already added to our bugtracker to implement this features. :-)

  27. Cbrentje

    This service is awesome! :) I was just wondering if there would be a service where I could check the download rate, 2 minutes later I clicked on the blog and I saw this great progression! If you stil need people to test it, I’d be Honored.

    Maybe 1 suggestion (could also already be in there):
    Instead of keeping track to all uploads done while logged in, It would be sweet if I could also add other downloads I’ve uploaded before (when this service wasen’t there yet). Because I uploaded an mix, and I’m very intrested how many times it is downloaded so far. So when I create an account, I’d apreciate an funtion where you can put in your old uploads to check those data to.

    But over all; <3 Zippyshare <3
    You guys saved my musical life! :)

    A feature that I personaly would like to see is an option to make an upload passwordprotected and/or limited in downloads/time.

    We already implemented a password protected folders (but a single files isn’t yet password protected – added to our to-do list :-)).

    “Limited in downloads/time” – you can always delete any file through the file manager, so we rather not implement this one

    i love it!

    but their can be some improvements:
    – the stats take to long to load (maybe don’t use real time stats, use 5min delay instead)
    – the site sometimes crashes (i need to close and reopen a tab for it to work again)
    Edit by Admin: qTip fault, added to bug tracker.
    – news links don’t work
    – the stats are not correct (first it said that i had a download 1 moth ago, but i uploaded the file 2 min ago but know after 5 min. it is correct)

    a couple of comments:
    -File Manager sometimes doesn’t show file list. I gotta logout and log back in to get back to work.
    -Moving files to folders can be a bit confusing at first. Got it figured out though.

    first 2 comments, more after I test out this feature thoroughly.

    oh forgot one more thing. username is case sensitive.
    let’s say a username like mine: WHOISRYO

    if someone types the address without caps (www.zippyshare.com/whoisryo), it’ll redirect to a page that says no user available.
    hopefully it can be accesses with or without caps in the future.

    This is very welcome news.

    Will a user be able to add existing zippy’ links to the user console (so I can track their status) or would I have to re-up’ all the files again.

    Edit by Admin:
    Yes, You will be able to add existing zippy links to your account. However added files will be seen in our system as entirely new files (new file id, new download link etc.). We can’t do it other way because we are not able to determine oryginal owner of the ‘old’ file and associate it with particular user account.

    Still got room for any more beta testers? :P

    Also, will folders be share-able so that other people can see all the files at once? It’d be a great help for when I’m trying to share my DJ sets, and it’s the only thing even slightly keeping me on MegaUpload.

    Admin: Yes this feature is allready implemented.

    Also, with the folders, any chance of a way of downloading an entire folder at once? Either through dynamically zipping it and downloading a zip or just getting all the files at once.

    Admin: Not much of a chance. This would probably hurt our revenue stream greatly. But we will keep this in mind and maybe we will be able to come up with a viable solution.

    Hi Zippyshare staff,
    I have just made a forum for all the testers to share their suggestions and experiences with the new account user console.

    Hi,

    I’m using zippyshare every weekend to upload livesets.
    These livesets are not illegal and I’ve got the permission to share them.
    My visitors always ask if I want to upload the livesets on zippyshare because it’s the best file hosting website for both: uploader and downloader.
    With a personal file manager it’s even better!

    Hope it’s released for public soon and maybe I can grab a test account :).

    Just noticed that files expire after a 30 day period. I understand that is required for server space, speed, sublink freedom, etc… However a neat feature would be that when the 30 days expire the user is given a 5-10 day period where he can refresh his files for another 30 days, therefore not loosing long term records of downloads and views and avoiding him the hassle of re-uploading his files(saving up a lot of server bandwidth).

    Apart from that Zippyshare team, You’re the best!

    Admin: basically what you suggest would work just us extending the file life to 40 days would. We don’t see a reason for that. If the hosted files are active they will be kept forever. If a file does not get any downloads in 30 days it is for sure dead.
