Exclamation Lots of 404 File not found errors

Hi.
It appears that a lot of your links don't work.

Try this URL

http://www.winamp.com/PointRollAds.h.../2%3B~sscs=%3F$CTURL$&pub=adscom&flash=9&server=portalserve&bu=2115312103

It keep saying 404, File not found!

Are you updating your website right now?

I hope youļl fix it soon.

Thanks.

Yes, I'm getting tons of these errors.

I would click a link, then the next page starts loading for a split second, but then it would redirect to an address that looks something like:

winamp.com/PointRollAds.htm?pid=[..........]

The page would read:

It doesn't always happen, only sometimes.

The only solution is to go to the page again from another page or by typing in the address manually (can't Refresh/Reload, because it's a redirect) and hope that the error won't happen that time.

As far as I can tell, the main page never gets the error, but other pages do. (I know at least the Plugins pages and the Skins pages get it all the time.)

Judging from the address, I'm guessing this is due to certain ads. (which would make sense, because sometimes, the ads in question aren't loaded, thus the error doesn't occur)

This must be KILLING your site stats

This is really frustrating. Is there any plan afoot to fix it? Apparently, from this post, it's been going on for over a week...I know for a fact that most users aren't as persistent as I am, and unless you've got a really sweet deal with your advertisers (or ad agents), you're losing money two ways: users won't stay as long on the site if you're not serving pages and advertisers won't pony up if you're not serving their ads.
So far, there seems to have been no reply to this post. Is this because customers who use a free product don't count, so their problems don't merit attention?

This is extremely frustrating when attempting to browse the plug-ins or skins - yoiu just can't do it.

The problem appears to me to be an advertisement that is nor being displayed properly and goes to a 404 error.

Please fix the problem or at least post a reply here stating that you are working on it.

Regards,

If you had put up a complete url, I could do a better check. As it is, I don't have problems viewing or downloading skins.

Re: link requested

Where did you get this link? It is not one you would normally get on this site.

No. Firefox isn't causing it at all. A skin file named EMP_2.wal does not exist in the download.nullsoft.com/customize/component/2006/5/12/P/ directory at the Nullsoft server.

Exactly from where did you obtain that link/file location? From exactly what page at Winamp.com? Without that info it will be impossible to tell if the page points to the above non-existing .wal skin file.

[EDIT]

The "P" in that link stands for Plug-in, and you will never be able to get a skin from that. A link for a skin would have a "S" in that place.
