    You guys do realize that filejoker isn't mandatory yet right?

    There's still time for them to make some changes before it becomes official and it's a good thing that, this time, we get to try it first and find the problems before we're stuck with them.

    All of the previous host had problems and some changed some things out after they became partners with akiba to better suit our needs.

    I'm sure that akiba's staff won't jump into something that will be detrimental to the forum.

    Hello everyone! Allow me to join this discussion and provide some information to clear things up a little.

    We are a private affiliate program. You will have to contact support for activation of your affiliate account. Before activation we will ask you to show us the sources of your traffic and in some cases we may ask to see your earnings stats, but thats rare. We do this to insure that our service is stable, safe and our conversion and customer retention (rebills rate) are one of the best. This also insures timely payouts to our partners.

    We pay weekly, on Mondays. Minimum payout is $100 to Webmoney and Bitcoin. Wire Transfer also is an option and starts from $1000. Wire fee ranges from 60$ to 80$.

    We offer unlimited storage (and free Premium) to our partners. When you reach 10Gb just contact us and we will give you more.

    20 Gb download limit.
    This limit is for any 3 consecutive days and allows to maintain a good balance between free downloads and sales.

    PPD vs PPS
    We have PPS (by default) and PPD programs. However the rate per 1000 downloads is determined automaticaly by the system depending on different factors, mostly on the quality of your traffic. But from our experience PPS plan 99% of the time is better for uploaders. However if you wish to try working with PPD, you can always contact to us and ask to switch you to PPD. We will be happy to do it.

    What do you mean by this?

    Keep2share(a previous sponsor) had a 20GB/day download limit for premium users and there was non-stop complaining that it wasn't even close to enough.
    You're offering 3 times less than that so I don't see how you could ever consider this a good balance(not that I need much more myself since I rarely download). It wouldn't even be(or barely be) possible to download 1 bluray title before reaching the limit.

    Why do PREMIUM users have download limits? Like SamKook said, 20GB isnt even enough for a single blu ray ISO, and that's every 3 days. I dont even wish that kind of evil for the free users. Do you guys have plans to change this? It needs to be changed.

    20 GB limit / 72 hours is unacceptable for PAYING PREMIUM USERS... also this should have been made CLEAR before I spent my money on this.

    I think this decision will in fact limit your sales...

    Please reduce your minimum payment to $20.

    The premium membership increased to 40GB daily download limit.

    I think this is a reasonable approach, also can increase your sales.

    You are charging Premium rates for what is effectively a throttled service. Reading through your pitch it is obvious where your priorities lie. One curt and evasive statement for downloaders; the rest for uploaders. I know uploaders make the world and Akiba a better place. Still and all, 20 gigs every three days for downloaders is mean-spirited, miserly and mercenary. Not enough? Buy more subs...like that's going to happen. And as for this piece of PR claptrap: "20 Gb download limit. This limit is for any 3 consecutive days and allows to maintain a good balance between free downloads and sales." Say that often enough and you'll have a nose as long as John Holmes' schlong.

    I am extremely disappointed with this 20GB every 3 days crap.
    I have queue my 104.90 GB from SOURD upskirt upload. After 12 days, I still haven't complete anything. With unstable internet, my 20GB is instantly gone. Because the second time I want to resume, it count another 1GB of file.
    I thought keep2share is bad, This is the worst filehost in history.

    Just paid for premium, assuming it would be unlimited downloads and now I'm kind of confused as to why you would set the limit at 20gb for 3 days.
    That's like selling apples but people are only allowed one bite.

    Thank you everybody for your valuable feedback, we will take this under advisement and will discuss it internally to see If something could be changed in this regard.

    Thank You for responding

    if you are going to discuss it internally, the biggest complainant will be the download volume, there are some files that go way over 40GB, and in an extreme case one one was over 70 GB,

    if you look at how ryushare started out, they built very well, if you could keep these guys up to date, they will keep coming back, long may it be a successful reign

    20GBs cap for one day is already way too limited in this age when many are already using fibre for the internet.
    20GBs for 3 days sounds like a joke. Is it a joke?
    Ryushare offered 80Gb per day.

    still no word if they will remove 20gb limit for PREMIUM users? I understand akiba needs money but you're basically killing off any incentive for people to stick around if they can only download 2-3 files when there are HUNDREDS of new releases every week

    they doubled the size, IT IS NOW 40GB, look on the previous page

    they also said they are monitoring it, so we can hope they will increase again soon,

    give them a chance, as it gets busier, the servers will increase, and more flow will come
