C/Justice is a so called "Nuker" or "Faker" and "Rewarder". There already
do exist a lot of doors that approach the same goal (the best known being
Q-Punish and Credit Exterminator): take or add credits from/to an uploader.
We call this one "Justice". Sort 'em out, dude! :) You may think you don't
need such a tool (at least for "nuking"), since CNet has a built in credit
remover. But consider the the following situations:
o someone has uploaded very old software or some other crap. For the sake
of completeness of your *nice* :) filebase, you decide to keep the file
online - but you don't want to reward the uploader with "full" credit
for a valid upload. With Justice, you can remove the credits for the
upload only *partly*, while keeping the file online.
o someone has uploaded a dupe. Maybe the file already exists and the
uploader has renamed the file just to make some fast credits, or the
file has finally made its way into Aminet and everyone thinks its new
and spreads it around, yet you already have it from a *better* source.
With Justice, you can *keep* the file in your file catalog and mark it
with a comment to the description, letting the other callers know that
you don't need the file again, just because it popped up on Aminet.
o you have different ratios for various filetypes. Regular software gets
e.g 3:1, modules and pictures only 1:1. Someone makes a batch upload
to your global "uploads" subboard (which is a perfectly natural thing
to do), receiving "regular" credit for all the files (which is not the
way things should go on your BBS). With Justice, you can select the
whole *range* of files that don't get the regular ratio, and correct
the uploaders credit.
o someone has uploaded a requested file, something you've been eager to
have for *ages*, a great brand-new demo from a party, something like
that. With Justice, you can give the uploader *additional* credits for
being so nice.
o You have a permanent event like a competition, e.g. you are just mad
about the great modules from Neurodancer (hint-hint! hehe), and to
motivate your users to upload all of that damn crap, you made the
public announcement that all those files will be rewarded with bonus
...yes, there are many reasons for extracting the whole archive to your
