First off there's no way to link to the files online.
This is a little convoluted (which I agree is an issue), but here's how to get a link to a file:1.
Click the file to full-view it.2.
Copy the now-very-bloated URL in your Address Bar.3.
Paste that URL into a new tab and go to it.4.
The URL will shorten itself to something more manageable as the page loads.5.
Copy that new, shortened URL.
Second there is no way to know how many downloads there have been.
Confirmed: download counts are only shown for screenshots. How strange.

I believe it was possible to press a "Download to xbox" type button, even on waypoint's version of the fileshare for halo reach files. Did y'all move that button around or hide it someplace else?
