Credits and losing them

I am just curious about the credit system in this fashion of how they work. I have downloaded a couple of images today and they didn't seem to download properly so I tried to download them again and I have been charged (for want of a better word) two or three times for the downloads. I wouldn't be so worried about it except these were pretty fat images 4.4 credits and 4.5 credits, so it is alot of credits to be lost. I know you guys aren't going to reveal how the system works but this does appear to be a slight flaw in the system if you loose credits for a redownload. Also sorry if this issue has been brought up before. I couldn't find it with search (may have been titled differently).

As the system currently stands, any gallery item downloaded costs credits. The system does not distinguish between first downloads and redownloads. There have been some suggestions to let the system determine whether you've downloaded an image before and not charge you a second time, but I don't think it's got much of a chance for implementation, since it would probably mean a new system of download tracking would have to be implemented.

Hmm, looks at though we'd post a lot of messages in the forums, reply on gallery posts and recieve guestbook replies to get free credits.

Of course, posting a scan or an image can boost things up with the commentaries posted for them. =P

Eeek, here I was hoping against hope that if a download fails and you refresh it wouldn't charge again. At least I try to limit myself to the 1. credits.

I'd only like to be able to win credits as fast as I lose them - not have an almost 12h delay on the wins.

Well, I did not want to start a new thread as it is also about gaining losing credits.
I had been gaining credits like crazy yesterday and I have no idea why. Suddenly some were gone again without me downloading.
Is this a bug or just me?

i believe it may be a minor glitch, i downloaded a few pics in one day, came back today and i had my original credit back, then when i downloaded a pic again, i lost it plus the credit it takes for the picture download.

yes, it's a little annoying...mine's a little different, my credits freezed up for 2 days I think? >_< or it's just normal for the calculation of credit system.....
the system should ignore the credit cost if the user will try to view the image the 2nd time to avoid losing credits on re-downloads

I honest don't understand how to get more credits all that well... I mean I have to use a credit tosubmit something and I know if MT deletes it I get it back but other than that I got no idea... I really want to put art up but then I get scared I might forever be 0 credits if my art is not good enugh to somehow eanr them back... *sigh* so how do I get credits...

Actually, I don't feel like we earn credits now... or really really few... I think that since 3 days, I have just got 5 credits.... when I used to have really more than ten times this number... and no, I don't think I've posted more than ten times less.

I wonder if how we win the credits have changed... or if the new quota dl there's a bug.

hm..... after the implementation of free downloads quota, is it i'm too sensitive? it seems like it's getting harder and harder to get the credit points.... today i've just take part in some forum to have a leisure talk.... and i still see my credits grow little only not not even growth a single points... eventough i re-login to see how much growth of my credits....

the quota will regenerate back to 30 if u not log in within 24 hrs after u logged out, after u used up all ur quota, then it started to deducted ur credit... for more info u can refer the forum "free download quota"...

Damn...I burnt all my credits, because I was about when it wasn't introduced. There goes my download sprees. So to get credits, you would post art, scans etc? Oh well, this is my punishment for my impulsive image hoarding!
