I have created a couple of players aids and I think it would be nice to know how many times they have been downloaded.

This would also help users to quickly scan a list of files and view the most popular downloads first.

Just a thought...does anyone else see the value in this?

Perhaps
Sounds like a good idea. Though the download numbers might not truly reflect popularity since one often has to download something to decide if it's useful or not. I end up discarding many things I download when they end up being of no value to me.

Another idea might be to offer the ability for users to rate files, either numerically or something ala amazon.com's "Was this review helpful to you?" feature.

Any rating system would help us figure out which files are most useful though.

Doh!
Hadn't thought about the fact that you needed to download first to determine value...

A ratings system would be useful, though.

Thanks for the input.

recent additions
I just want the Recent addtions page to list the name of the file instead of just "File" so that we get an idea of what the file is from the recent additions page.

I would also like to see the name of the file and the description in the RSS feed.
