Hi friends, I got reported from many of you, that they cannot DL anymore from FF and instead of DL they get the advice that the files owner (me) has restricted the DLs only to premium account owners.
This is the advice appears:
Premium Account Required
The owner of this file has restricted it to members with an active Premium Account. Please purchase an account to download this file.
Please contact support if you require further assistance.
THIS IS DEFINITELY NOT TRUE.
This is what I wrote just now to the supporters of FF:
Hi Bill, some of my customers and friends reported me they are unable to DL some files and they get the advice that the files owners (me) has set the files to DL only for premium accounts owners. But this is double not true:
1 – I didn’t set the files that way….
2 – There is no restriction that I can see…all my files are without any option and free DLable for all (just checked it now). I didn’t anything. I tried to DL after I made logout and I get that advice.
What happens there?
If FF has decided to sell more premium accounts by doing this action, I can only say, this is more than deprecable and disgraceful, because you give the impression, that it was my intention and not yours.
Please reallocate all settings, so everything works like it was before.
I don’t know if this is a temporary error on FF’ side. Let’s wait some days, until they answer and then, let’s think about what to do.
EDIT 20 minutes later
Hi friends, with the help of some guy from my other blog I could resolve this mistery. However, something on FF side had caused this issue, setting in my “DL settings-window” on my account, that damned switch “ON” instead of “OFF”, like it was for the last two years, since I’m on FF.
OK, now it’s set again “OFF” and you all can DL like before.
