In the 16/10/2017 'List of all skins:' it lists:

FF&F BLK 3 as 33 Downloads

(FF&F BLK 3 RLD ✓ 33 439 25/02/2017)

This my well be completely innocent or some other unknown factor, but could be a form be of 'Download Bombing'.

The average Downloads for the FF&F Skins is about 5 each, at 33 Downloads for 'FF&F BLK 3' the range of deviation is excessive.

Do you have a way or is there a program that can detect 'Download Bombing'?

Don't get me wrong, when I first saw it, it was a great Warm Fuzzy - for about a second.

THere's nothing "odd" happening with the downloads as far as I can see - from looking through the logs sure enough there were 33 downloads, from 21 different IP addresses, across all seven days of the week.

Most browsers were running on Windows as you'd expect, some look to be crawlers:

Just a after thought - what about adding 2 columns to the 'List of all skins:'?

Under 'Last week':

A Column listing the number of Locations (Loc's or IP's). (See Above - "from 21 different IP addresses".)

Under 'Total'

A Column listing the number of total Countries (Ctrys). 11<--Example

(FF&F BLK 3 RLD ✓ 33 21 439 11 25/02/2017)

The Columns 'Name' and 'Designer' looks like it is already set up for 'Text Wrap' and there is a smidgen of room after the 'Date' .
