Contributing

If you'd like to contribute a feature or bugfix: Thanks! To make sure your fix/feature has a high chance of being included, please read the following guidelines:

  1. Post a new GitHub Issue[http://github.com/karlentwistle/Cherrypicker/issues].
  2. Write a simple unit test that includes UrlAvailable?

Limitations

  1. The download function for cyberlockers is only useful if you're using premium accounts, this will not work without a valid username and password when downloading a file

  2. The linkchecker is subject to throttling from both Hotfile and Rapidshare so don't abuse it or your IP address could get banned

  3. I frequently have problems accessing file hosting sites because one of their files has been included on the IWF list and the ISP IWF filtering screws things up. (Im on Virgin Media UK)
