Would it be possible to get some folders on the FTP to categorize the various files on it? IE

Operating Systems - Microsoft - Apple - Windows - Windows 2000 - etc.
Games
Apps - Internet Explorer - etc.

Just a little blah to navigate for a newbie I guess!

I believe everything on the server is being reorganised and repacked. It's a huge job that's been underway for some time now, but it is being done.

Please learn to use the search function. This has already been asked in the last month and the answer was the same. There will be 4 categories when the repacking is complete.

Applications
Games
Operating Systems
Misc

Other than those folders, there will be no more folders at all, not even categorised by codename etc because cycling through folders is boring and people want to get to what they want quickly and efficiently, and people also like to look just for the sake of looking and possibly downloading something they never knew they wanted. Again cycling folders is boring so we make a "general" recategorisation and that will enough. Filenames will also be renamed to a better standard as well with the correct information needed unlike the current setup.

Further queries should go to mrpijey (do not harass him please).

While I don't necessarily care about the folder organization, I do think there needs to be some sort of standardized naming scheme. *Just as an example*, take Windows Vista for instance. Some are named "Vista ...." and others "Windows Vista ....". If I wanted to see everything "Windows", I can't even just search for "Windows".

Just some feedback. Please don't hate.

Did you even read the above post? No offense but I stated what was going to happen in it.

I just read it again, and everything but the last sentence seemed familiar. My mistake :/

Thats OK, and sorry for my attitude just then, the forum just got a SQL injection which I've been trying to fix and put in countermeasures so as you can guess I'm not in the best of moods!

In FileZilla, it doesn't seem to show the folder structure - Anyone have an idea on how to show file structure in FileZilla, or have another client that will work? I noticed this when I connected to some ftp server in explere and filezilla - the explorer one had structure, while FZ didn't. Anyone have a solution? Thanks in advance!

There is no folder structure. It is a list of files in the same directory, nothing more.
