Found out why some people's download link doesn't work. The reason has 3 main causes that I have found that will result in 'page not found' when pressed. Allot of the time a person submits a game with a space in the filename That is a big no-no in the computer world. Other times a person will use uppercase charictars wich may troggle a 'page not found' screen. Although I think that problem may be fixed now. I relized that after having to go into my download after submitting it due to the link not working. after doing this several times, I soon learned that there was a space at the end of the address so the link would look like this when I clicked the link "http://www.google.com/randomfile.zip%20". Most of us know that when you use a space in an address bar it will replace it with '%20'.
(' ') = ('%20') on the internet.
The other half of the time, it is because you are using sitesled or something that goes down alot and people dont have reliable servers. Me on the other hand has an FTP for Brainware people who would like free webspace for there apps. (resonable amount)
The last third portion of the time is just because you uploaded wrong or the computer hates you and wants to kill itself with a virus.

Viruses are not created by humans, but instead by computers who hate there owner and kill themselfs to end the missery. That is why there are sooo many porn pop-ups. They offer there service to computers who want to die and will infect them if requested. SUICIDAL COMPUTERS. A little off topic

I feel obliged to mention that you can't spell and go a bit mad at the end, but otherwise you raise some decent points:

1. Don't put spaces in filenames,
2. Don't use uppercase characters in filenames,
3. Don't use Freewebs.

This is pretty self-explanitory and a lot of people know all your points already. However it's useful to be reminded now and again... saves us admins doing it
