Default Downloads forum

It would be cool if we had a downloads forum where we could have posts that show a Link to somewhere, and somebody could download that file. i am not talking about uploading files to this forum but rather uploading files somewhere else and putting a link on the forum. Tell me what you think!

Freeware and shareware. I don't think it would be wise to have a forum full of illegal stuff.

You recruit mods that would want to moderate the downloads forum.

The easiest way to keep it "clean" would be to make the forum so that only Forum Leaders could post to it. The bad thing about that is it makes more work for the Mods.

We have some sticky posts that has that info in them.
