Hi fellow Gigga.gg members,
Let's all post our user profile links here and make it a bit easier to find each other.
In addition, the user profile serves as an act of filter for those who prefer to know whether or not the person he invites will be a contributor who will also share and help build each other's collection. So, I believe this would be a good way to start in building a solid network.
Now, I'm fairly new to Gigga, but from what I can see, there doesn't seem to be an effective way to search for memebers(via size shared for example) nor is there a way to communicate between users- even if they are your friends and have been added to your contact list.
So from a user's standpoint, it's extremely difficult to determine and judge another member's worth- is he someone who might have an insane amount of materials like me? or is he just someone who has 20-30 random files that he just downloaded off the internet? In addition, How are we going to ask a fellow giga member if he has materials by a certain Hypnotist and whether or not he could put it on his share list?
So here is my idea:
1. We post our profile list for others to see, to let each other know that we have at least the basic requirementâ€¦ a reasonable amount of materials shared.
2. Members can use this thread to:
- let others know what materials he just put up on his share list (for example: I could alert members that I have just put up all my Amethyst files)
- or you could ask other members to put up files they have for a particular artist, or a specific file, and if you get a reply, you will know who to go to for your needs.
(from people's participation in this thread, how often someone helps out a fellow member, or how often they alert other users of new stuff they're rotating in and out of their collection for sharing, it will give us a better sense of who we are actually sharing with and whether or not that person is someone I want to keep on my contact list as the emergency guy to go to when I'm desperately searching for something.)
As a matter of fact, we can even have fun events each week or each month where we have Amethyst Week, Isabella Valentine Week, Mistress Carol Week, etc.. where every member try to put up as many files they have of a particular hypnotist!!! And as a member, we can just browse through everybody's collection and try to look for files that we are missing ourselves.
And, little by little, as we learn and get to know each other better, we can finally make use of the Group function on Gigga- where people hardcore about a particular Hypnotist can gather together, and new people looking for that particular artist could get suggest into the group.
And with this, the serious collectors are able to identify each other and put trust in each other and perhaps form a solid network and act as the pillars of our community.
I just discovered Gigga today, and due to a hard drive failure recently, i'm rebuilding my collection at the moment (though still at a sizable amount of 200+gigs and growingâ€¦. as other torrents are still in the download queue) :D
I have put up 8 gigs worth of materials from a few randomly selected folders in the mean time, and will gradually start organizing all the files I have- removing duplicates, putting files into their corresponding folderâ€¦ so hopefully in the not so distant future, I will be able to display my collection in a more orderly fashion.
I highly encourage other serious collectors to join this thread and start a new evolution!!! â€¦. just kidding (start networking!)
