For the past 6 months or so I have been trying to join Dime-a-dozen but no slots ever come become available.
Is there any otherway to join, or, does anyone have a membership they do not use, (or I can borrow) to download some Simon and Grafunkel home recordings?

John,

I happen to have a Dime registration, that I hardly ever use.

I'll send you my login details as soon as I find them.

EDIT: quite sorry, John, but my DIME account seems to have been deleted for inactivity [*string of deleted expletives*]

From their FAQ:
"Non-VIP accounts that go for 150 days without a visit to DIME's web front-end are deleted for inactivity"
and unfortunately I believe that to be the case [*string of self-cursing deleted expletives*].

GRRRRRRR!!!!

Thanks Gnomo, pity about that.

So how does one get a VIP account? My email is under my profile - so I can be contacted by private email if needs be.

Sorry, no idea at all - I am anything but familiar with Dime, as the loss of my account should suggest... *hangs head in shame* *LOL*

Obviously it is possible to join the forum on a regular basis, as inactive members are being deleted and a few hundred new members join in every day... It was the same a few years ago when I got there.

And that VIP membership is nothing more than an indication that you have paid some money in support of the site. I suppose you could try to e-mail the administrator and offer a small donation if they will let you in . ;)

Hi Barb: Did I violate a TOS or do something wrong when I posted the info for John regarding the chez + more torrent last night?

Thanks,

Cindy

Cindy, you accidentally hit the "new topic" button, just look further down on this page and you find a thread called "no subject" ;)

Dime was/is great, I opened an account yesterday just to see what I'm missing on.

And to make my life worse my better half is totally against any sort of p2p usage on our shared adsl connection. And I'm foolish enough to agree.

Why don't you just tell her/him/it that no artists were harmed in the making of the site, all their material will be promptly removed upon request (Metallica and U2 among others have requsted this), and the site has no sponsors from whom the administrators would receive money.

As far as I can see it's a perfectly harmless non-profit website, unlike QZ. ;)

You as a fellow Finn if anyone should be aware that Teosto and Gramex make no separation between the non-profit traders/collectors (online and real-life) and the actual piracy (official releases). Non-profit traders have been punished already with severe fines in Finland, so it's not exactly a risk-free hobby. The stance of local authorities considering these harmless bootlegs comes clear on the antipiracy.fi website in cases such as

http://www.antipiracy.fi/ajankohtaista/uutinen.html?id=8025
http://www.antipiracy.fi/ajankohtaista/uutinen.html?id=8005

Notice how the guy that got a 16000€ fine was actually given a "lighter" sentence for being a non-profit collector/trader...

Yes, Dime is illegal according to the current Finnish legistlation (both downloading and sharing the bootleg material), however getting caught is quite a rarity. I'm sure it's almost impossible to get caught in online bootleg downloading with all the ISP's reluctant to share details about their customers and their online activities, unlike with real-life cd trading that involves the post office, customs and such (not to mention your real name and address on the envelope).

But those who you who do Dime, better enjoy it while it lasts, because no-one knows when the plug gets pulled on all the fun.
