Major entry downloads follow a format like:
Botb [ID] [Artist] - [Title]

Downloading from minors follows this format so we don't see who wrote the entry during XHB voting:
Botb [ID] - [Title]

Requesting to have artist added to the minor downloads after the voting period closes (if possible) so's I can know who wrote what after the zombie apocalypse.

Thanks!

not sure if this is a straight-forward fix

yeah, if the file itself is named that way at submission time, then it would require actually renaming the file (?) so I don't know.

i'm an apache noob (only tried to run it once in my desktop computer a decade ago, and i'm a huge disaster on php and sql), but as i imagine all submitted files are never stored in the server(s) with space characters,unicodes and etc. in the filename, i think it might be relatively easy and simple to get fixed, might be somewhere in just one line code (i think... - and i think the most difficult part is finding or remembering where this line code is...)

illegal characters in the filename are the only things changed to the filename on submission (i guess this makes more sense for majors where the title becomes the filename).
there is a forwarding layer that counts the download so it shouldn't be too hard to add this change w/o changing the filenames in the system
