Top 10 Files for July

by Douglas Cuff [D.CUFF]

This feature lists the ten most popular files for the month. To give files a chance to seek their own levels, no files will be added to the list until they've been in place at least a month. This month, we look at the files uploaded 1–31 July 1997.

This isn't the Academy Awards ceremony, folks; it's more like the People's Choice Awards (both of which are trademarked, by the way). The Top 10 doesn't necessarily tell you what's new and interesting — what files you might find interesting — it simply tells you what files have been downloaded a lot — what other people found interesting!

This month, GenieLamp A2 occupies three spots on the list, but we're just counting that one file. Also, two different version of Crock O' Gold count as just one file. We hope this explains why there are 13 files on the Top 10 list.

Something else very interesting happened in July: the A2Pro library was merged with the A2Pro library — over 1700 files — and meant that some of the "old" files were new to some people. Two of the newly-merged A2Pro files actually made it into the Top 10 for July!
