    Ok i am thinking of opening a site. But i didnt know what to do with it until this morning when it struck me. I'll open a torrent site but this will be a legal torrent site where people can upload their PSDs, Packs and anything else they need to uplaod. Ok i know theres all these free hosters out there but how many of them give decent speeds and the wait time on some of them is unbelievable. It will also get rid of having to split the files into archieves so they can be uploaded as torrents can be anysize you want.

    This will be a 100% legal free site as people choose to upload there work. Im not going to be breaking any copyright laws unless someone uplaods some copyrighted work but they will seen to

    I need some opinions on this because i want to open a sucessful site and i think this may just put the icing on the cake.

    So how about it? Comments please

    the idea is nice, but as you said there already are a lot of free hosting sites around. You'll have to provide fast uploading and downloading and an easy way to find your stuff without it becoming a deviantart-ripoff.
    The idea is nice but I think it might be hard to do.

    Good luck with it ;)

    You shouldn't open a site for the sake of opening a site.
    You should get an idea for one, then want to open a site.

    I would like to see a good music sharing site.

    Yes, tons of people use torrents. I use them on a daily basis. The only down side to the whole idea is that it would require an external program to download the files. Also, I hope you're intimately familiar with torrents, because setting up your own trackers and such is no easy task.

    I already have custom tracker software on my computer

    2/3 of the internet according to some sites is torrent based so its not trouble about people knowing how to use them and even if they dont i can make a tutorial..wouldnt be hard

    Music sharing is a no no..I dont want to end up in prison over a website

    you fail.....gtfo

    about the site
    tbh i dont really know there already a ton of resource sites out there already
    the only that makes yours different is that its based on torrents
    but if you like the idea go for it

    You have to advertise a lot though whether it is posting on forums or inviting people, otherwise everyone will turn to look at the big names.

    Political discussion.

    I would like to see a site for intelligent discussion about politics w/o being biased like most networks are. (fox, nbc, ect...)

    Yea i agree...Theres alot of resource sites out there..it will take something good to get it going but like all torrent sites...They get big quiet quick.

    Torrents can be fun tho..Trying to get your stats up.

    I think because the GFX community is so big, and is expanding, this could be a good idea, and the whole 'Only Legal Torrent Software' would be a great attraction. go for it :)
