I have been working on a site that allows clans to upload their server maps, mods, etc to a central location so players can just search by server name or clan name and download them easily. Wanted to see if this is actually something anyone would use???

Sounds good but different games vary in maps and mods. What game(s) were you planning on doing this for? I think everyone is still use to the old fashioned way of finding and downloading maps and mods but you'll have to see cause that's just me.

Im hoping to have this support all games....file catagorized by games....i agree that ppl still do it the old way but this allows calns to put their files in one place for ppl to find..Its probubly not going to catch on but wanted to try it out.

Doesn't an FTP server somewhat fulfill this?

First off its insecure...second its not as user friendly.this allows every clan to publich their server files in one public place to be searched.

I'd say this would be a bad idea. Its a better idea for servers to be linked to an FTP server and auto-download files instead.
