Download Links

3.1 Make sure that you test all your links before you post them.

3.2 Upload your files somewhere, DON'T POST DOWNLOAD LINKS TO/FROM OTHER FORUMS. If you do, your links will be removed. You can use any online file hosting website to store your files (hotfiles.ro, myuplbox.com, zippyshare.com, uploads.ws, share-byte.net, extabit.com, depositfiles.com, uploaded.net, rapidgator.net, etc.). You are also required to have a copy of the file(s) from your release so that if the file(s) you uploaded expire/get deleted you are able to reupload them.

3.3 Mass-mirror Hosting Sites MUST be used when adding any shared files. It is required to use at least 3 available Hosts, but re-distribution is automatic so you may as well use the maximum number

More URLs = More choices = Files live longer. Examples of multi-upload Host sites:

- hotfiles.ro

- directmirror.com

- embedupload.com

- mirrorcreator.com

- flashmirrors.com

Spam

4.1 Do not Spam.

We want your posts to have substance (as if you are taking part in a verbal conversation), something that other members can reply to.

4.2 No Posting Self-Gain links (for example money or referrals).

The only exception to this rule are donation links posted by the authors of releases that are freely distributed (for example free software or ROMs).

Warnings

5.1 Members who disobey the rules will be warned or banned depending on what the moderator believes is the appropriate punishment.

This does not mean that you have to have a warning to get banned, moderators may ban you without warnings depending on the offense.
