Like I said in the title... What Is This "Content Locked" All About?

For all of you who come to this forum and have never had to deal with having the download link,
or any other information, blocked by an image like I posted below.

There is a very simple method to get the info you so desperately seek.

What To Do Now?

As you can see in the small print on the image (I did not read that when I came here and therefor I
had to ask) all you need to do is hit the Thank You button on the right hand side of the grey bar just below here.

It looks like this.. [Image: postbit_thx.gif]

But why would you have to thank the up-loader of this product?

The reason is 2 fold... First of, and possibly the most important one, is that the link will not be indexed by the search engines and therefore keeps the link alive longer.

For the 2nd reason let me tell you a short story:

In an other life I was a member of a forum not unlike this one, and well know to some of the mods and admin here,
where I posted my fair share of stuff that I "found" hitch hiking around on the highways of the web.

I found those poor lost soul's a new life serving as download links on that forum I was part off.

Then one day I posted this awesome link that got over 500 downloads.... but only a handful of the members
took the trouble to give me, the up-loader, a Thank You...guess what, I stopped sharing.

So now you know... say Thank You when you find that someone gave you something worth taking or even
if he/she put a smile on your face.

Just saying... Tongue
It also helps to keep our unique links alive instead of being leeched from other sites Wink
I think it will also serve if live links start die off quickly, and the same person(s) coincidentally DL'd them. Process of elimination

There's an extremely good secret hidden inside this code.
Thank me to see what it is XD.
Thanks narres for this thread, much needed as people are confusing clicking thank you for posting thank you in response.
The pleasure was all my my dear Sir.

Just saying... Tongue
It is a sad world when you need to force people to say a simple "thank you" for your efforts. But I guess that is the way the world is today... :o(

I see it the other way, members register on the forum (with an open link system), troll around threads, leech the hell out of the website and go to bed, not bothering to thank anyone for their efforts.
How cool would that be?
And add to that, some nasty kid downloads the file and sends an email to the hosting site which makes the link dead, that'd surely piss you off if you were eagerly waiting to download that file?

IMO, every coin has 2 sides, you're only seeing 1 side of it.
You have to do something I think to unlock those download links.
^Just click on the thank you button, it'll reveal the links like magick!
I think Content Locker is Just SPAM. for demand on user.
