FileJoker is not right for us

    FileJoker has failed as a good upload host. Most of its uploaded files can no longer be found. We need a more stable File Hosting site to support and be a partner with.

    You will find that a majority of the filejoker links have been DCMA'd, something that is outside of any filehosts control. At least that is the case with where I frequent, not sure about the rest of the forum.

    Those that don't comply with these requests wouldn't last long in this climate of copyright litigation.

    I am afraid we will simply have to deal with it.

    I am currently in the process of downloading a 20 part file from FileJoker, my first experience with FIleJoker. I'm at part 12 and already at least 2 times now the downloads stop before finishing for no apparent reason, meaning have to wait and then download again. After this file, never again. That's all I have to say.

    It has now gotten worse. The timer freezes when you're not on the webpage. There are also unwritten "free download slots". This cannot continue. We need something better than Filejoker.

    Filejoker is EXTREMELY disappointing. The number one problem for me is a three day 40 G limit on downloads, averaging 13.3 G per day. If you are downloading ISO Movies that is only 2-3 movies per day.

    Is there any way we can switch to a host with unlimited downloads? Who should I address this to ?

    Thank you

    It's no good.. as an uploader, I've been getting messages when trying to upload via FTP..
    421 There are too many connections from your internet address.

    Which is complete crap because I'm only uploading one file at a time and have only one connection open with them, so if I leave this go overnight and this pops up my uploads all fail and I have to start the queue over again. I never have this problem with the rapidgator or subyshare FTP's. This is not the only problem, I just had an upload fail at 938 out of 1000mb because of..

    Error: Could not write to transfer socket: ECONNRESET - Connection reset by peer
    Error: Connection timed out after 20 seconds of inactivity
    Error: File transfer failed after transferring 938.5 MB in 1330 seconds

    Never had this problem with other file hosts.. I really love wasting my time.

    Anyone know what's the approx wait time now? I think it is still dependent on the size of the file you previously downloaded but even for small files it seems a lot longer. Instead of the actual wait time, they purposefully put the ambiguous message of "No free download slots are available at this time."

    Long time premium filejoker user here, its gotten really slow for downloads and frequent disconnects mean the retry's burn through my daily quota because each attempt takes the filesize from your quota each time. Total crap.

    i would actually recommend to look into usenet providers. more secure than filehosting and universally useable. you're not limited to one provider. if you use one provider, someone else with a different provider still has access to the files, because it's shared in one network instead of just a site.
