    One thing I would add is that certain people need to be able to upload anonymous files / password protected. eg. I've been doing a lot of beta work for Bill with some items that I wouldn't want to be publically viewable either by name or download. I also self delete after usage to keep the server from getting clogged up with loads of otherwise useless files. Maybe certain users involved in this kind of work could be granted extra privaledges to upload anonymous files / password protected content / self delete their own files.

    This just doesn't seem right to me.

    Agreed.
    The FTP server is there to serve members of PL and isn't a free FTP service to accommodate general use.
    I know that Pangolin have their own facilities for up/downloading files via FTP (cus I also do Tippy Toppy Super Secret Squirrel work for them ).

    As Admin has stressed previously that they don't want to manage specific userid's/Passwords then (unless there's a change of policy) it looks like we all get the same privileges.

    Just do what I do, mark my name as part of the file name and encrypt it.
    I do this for things like service manuals that I can give to a owner of the laser but not to the general public. I help a lot of people this way, so I would not want to see the possibility go away.

    To me neither, why does he use a community dedicated server for private file exchange purposes? There are other possibilities for that (own server, filehoster, etc.)

    Here in the UK we have to write our files onto small scrolls, attach them to the leg of a pidgeon and send it to our ISP's to be added to our sites within 90 days !!

    Ok guys (those whom can write scripts), what i am planning is to once or twice per day have a cronjob check the PL ftp and download the difference where we will always have a current copy including newly added files.

    Can someone help me with this? I know little to nothing on scripting.

    Thanks.
