-A "make Ares my default torrent client" button in control panel.
-A folder within the shared folder named "My Torrents"
-A button to locate you to you torrents folder (for peeps who seem to have trouble finding files).
-Fix the torrents that don’t load proper with no name (annoying bug).
-Fix the skinning when creating a new search window.
-Add auto join options to favorites.
-Add a tick box in control panel to "auto add to favorites" having it auto add every room you join at the moment sucks, there should be an option.
-Give host the option to stop channel hashlink spamming in both main and pm.
-When banned ban the name and the ip, along with GUID.
-Keep a copy of the .torrent file in a folder.

Here is a link of what we think:

Great to se Ares now has the added torrent support, these are just suggestions us users look for and think would make Ares even better then it already is.

    Could Ares please add in the users real ip to the login packet for user that are on a proxy?
    People are using proxies in chatrooms and coming back like a yoyo and there is currently no way to ban them becase the banning system is not strong enough.

    How to block tor:
    http://tor.eff.org/faq-abuse.html.en
    http://proxy.org/tor.shtml
    The main problem being TOR, if this could be blocked like some IRC servers now do then that would stop a few 100 of them. And just incase anyone is reading this and would complain, maybe give the host a option to opt in or opt out of the feature for extra chat server protection.

    Maybe make Ares read this file http://proxy.org/tor_blacklist.txt ?
    I checked and it works for my web page :)

    All good ideas devil. I've been a host of a few rooms on ares now for over 3 years. The abuse of the proxies is getting way out of hand and something really needs to be done or we're going to lose a few good rooms from the ares community.

    Thanks for what was added!
    Everything seems to work great.

    Ideas for 3015:
    -Request: A torrents folder on the Library.
    -Bug: When you say "/stats" if your channel name is UTF8 unicode then it comes out as WindowsANSI (wrong encodings)
    -Update: Blocked_Keywords.txt made to be:
    BANANDKILL={nopqrst,testban}
    DISCONNECT={ehilm,testkill}
    FILTER={abcdef,testfilter}
    PMFILTER={abcdef,testfilter}
    This will then give the user total control of both chat an pm filters seperate, please make it support unicode.

    Big thanks to the Ares Dev team!

    The filter (for pm) does not seem to want to filter out channel hashlinks.
    It seems that if the text isnt exactly how it is in the filter then it wont work.

    Could the filter be changed so that its if text contains?

    Example:

    Blocked keyword parts:
    F5fP,F9Fb,FwrU,F1Up

    A filter to block people from joining your room based on client version would be good.
    This then giving us the option to block warez, filecroc and other clients that in some way could get arround the new GUID block.

    1) Option to select what files from a torrent you want to download, at the moment it will get them all even if you may only want 1 part. (like a trailer to test quality)
    2) Also on some files it will add all single rar's from a split rar file into Ares, this is where the torrent folder in the library would be very handy.
    Maybe if the files are in the "My Torrents" folder then they all get added to a torrents folder in the library, that way atleast your files are tidy and easy to find.

    Quoting that "A filter to block people from joining your room based on client version
    would be good.
    This then giving us the option to block warez, filecroc and other clients
    that in some way could get arround the new GUID block."...

    i don't agree to that, you shouldnt be able to force someone to use Ares... I for one, don't use Ares at all.. Cuz it's buggy, and it sucks.. (No offence to anyone), but it's true.
    Thats one of the many things i hate about AE as well... is that rediculous script some AE rooms have called "Enforcer". Plus blocking out programs like Warez, and FileCroc could limit the amount of users you have in your room.. If your looking to get a lot of people lol. Just ban them again, or i suggest to host your chatroom with a server that can "look-around" proxies, and grab the users real IP ;) That way, you have better ban protection, cause i have a friend who gave me this really nice chat server. Blocking over 8 million proxies. From what he told me, it grabs proxy lists from several different sources. I'm rating it as the best chat server too =] It's highly secured, Using many different protection methods.
    I see things like this very often in the room lol.. "şєŗvєŗ αđмıηışтŗαтıvє ησтıçє: Connection From A User 'Vaxtrip' On A Known Proxy Was Rejected." But the username changes often lol..
