I think there should be an alternate download link, some people don't trust adfly.
Also, there should be a patch for each of the modpacks in the technic launcher.

When making threads please actually make the topic reflect the content. Just saying "General" is silly.

Alternative links have been discussed numerous times, but I'm not sure the argument "for those who do not trust them" really makes sense. Why don't you trust them?

As for modpacks, it'll never happen because 1) Sphax doesn't want direct links to the main pack available anywhere but this site and 2) most of the people who made mod patches don't won't them listed in modpack launchers.

Sorry, i just didn't know what to call it.
And to answer your question I in particular don't trust adfly because my web filter thinks its a virus

Your web filter probably thinks it's a virus from the very rare times malware gets in as one of the ads (which could happen to any ad-host).

Adf.ly is usually clean. An over-active web filter isn't a good enough reason to make alternative links in my opinion.

I do agree an alternative to adf.ly would be good, but for sensible reasons of "in case adf.ly goes down" or "adf.ly just doesn't work for everyone".

Sphax keeps stating he MAY add alternatives, but it'd need another catastrophic downtime fiasco by adf.ly like a few months ago.
