    Hi,

    I've been trying to work out what that number means next to the participation level.
    e.g. Guru (Very Nice Rating) (238)

    What does that number mean? How does the system work, I've been trying to work it out but every time I think I work it out it does something unexpected.

    901-1000 =Supreme Being
    501-900 =Deity
    201-500 =Guru
    200-101 =High
    50-100 =Medium
    0-49 =Low
    Let people share your small size files if you want your participation level to go up more quickly.If you become a Supreme Being, watch out, if you start downloading a 700MB movie then your participation level will decrease drastically.The higher your status, the more the probability that you will be able to download a file from another user with a lower status from the source. In other words the lower participation users get cancelled automatically in favour of the higher participation users.

    And this is where I come in. There actually is a way to make it so you have a supreme being level at all times no matter what you are sharing or downloading. Its called k++. http://www.geocities.com/rndkpp/

    Right. That makes a lot of sense.

    I had guessed that the number going up was probably good... the only thing I hadn't been able to work out is how the number changed.

    I guess from what you are saying that it has something to do with MBs transferred ( with modification for number of files and how many have integrity ratings).

    Thanks for the answers.

    A question for you, Dela. The link you gave above regarding maintaining participation levels....does it only work if your at Supreme Being level? I downloaded the zip file from the link, having opened it I double-clicked on the .exe file....which in turn gave me an error message. At the time I tried to open the file I was at Guru level, does this have anything to do with the error? There were no clear instructions as to how to work this thing.
    Do you have to place this .exe file in the Kazaa folder and then execute the .exe?

    I just ran the exe and it asked me where the kazaa file was! I was at medium and it worked properly so I'm permanently at Supreme Being (1000) now! Try unzipping all the files before you run the .exe . I used it with kazaa lite also!

    the k++ works best and is included in the new kazaa lite. http://www.kazaalite.tk
    it also has NO spyware, NO ads, the option for endless search mores, two differant speedups, and the permanent supreme being rating:) plus lots lots more!
    after using kazaa with the cd_clint dll for a year I thought it couldn't get better, but it did:)

    Ye kazaa lite is the better than kazaa because it reomoves the spyware, adware, stealware and the mp3 birate limits! The only problem is Kazaa just aint that good anymore!

    I just installed this so-called Kazaa-Lite (k++) earlier today. Seems to have taken away all of the negatives of Kazaa with regards to spyware and such. There seems to be a big problem with people changing filenames however, and I've noticed that this is on the increase, it never used to be as bad as this. There's some very sad people out there! The software files seem to be riddled with viruses. If you click the options menu and go to the tabbed page where there is a option to tick a checkbox for files that could potentially contain viruses, if you tick this box you end up with no searches for software. You can't really win!

    well hopefully most of yous know about kazaalite. if not i want to educate the ones without this knowledge. well as you all know kazaa is a p2p file sharing service (peer 2 peer) where you can download almost anything as long as someone else out there in the world has it and is sharind it. although it is a great program itself it can be better. thats y there is new hacks out the for it. the main perks of these hacks are that they close all the ad-ware and spy-ware programs that kazaa brings. it gives you a permanent participation level of k-lite master (1000) aka "supreme being". now when you have a participation level of 1000 youll find yourself not getting bumped off to other users so much (getting those irritating "more sources").
    http://kazaa.infos-du-net.com/
    now the reason you get bumped off is because kazaa promotes file sharing, so it doesnt matter if your sharing a lot of files(you can be sharing tens of thousands of files) you have to be sharing files that people want. so the more uploads you get the better participation level you get thus the beter downloads you get. now kazaalite skips all this bull shit. and gives you a permanent participation level of 1000. if everybody used kazaalite the world would be such a better place. more downloads, faster downloads, etc. i could go more in dept about kazaa but i dont know if everybody wants to read about it. so i deeply encourage everyone to get kazaalite. and for those first time users try out kazaa first. heres the link for kazaa lite++
    http://kazaa.infos-du-net.com/

    Write Back! Tell me if you liked it, if you already use it, if you dont like it, y u like it or dont, if you know any better ones out there, if you dont agree with what i said, or if you do, tell me i'd like to know. If the world used klite++ it would be such a better place!!!!
