.... No, I'm sure of that.
the point is that there is no relation between
no 90! and ESA

But if you write no download or not downloadable or anything more clear people can just relate that with the ESA icon, and that this means something else and it is protected, or just illegal to download for free.
People will make the realtion between protected and not downloadable...i hope so...

This could only make things worse.

You all have said intelligent things, but I'm still convinced that the "No 90" icon could be replaced by one more understandable.
In this way we won't stop them, but it's likely that we'll reduce the number.

"NOT AVAILABLE", "NOT DOWNLOADABLE", "NO DOWNLOAD", "NOT ABANDONWARE"

How about writing something like:
"download will be available after 01.03.2011"
Since we know how ESA works, we know when games will be available - it could be simple to tell the less smart of people when it will be downloadable, and below that a link to explanation about what is ESA and why do we have to wait so long.

I agree with you, it is the best solution until now.

Here, it says "No Go!"
Even if they understand in one glance the 'no go' they WILL post.
Once again I rest my case.
They WILL post.
No escape.
Never.
Whatever you do, whatever explaination you link, they WILL post.

Well...at least they will ask us "why??", not what "ESA no 90" means...it's easier to explain :laugh:
