You can use any online file hosting website to store your files (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

- 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.

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.

Hi mods, in light of recent events concerning the infected files on here which I've brought to your attention (most recently the Vanced Tuber app), I think it would be a good idea at the very least, to include some form of rule concerning a vetting process of the files being uploaded here.

Perhaps it could be a rule that all posts are accompanied by a virustotal scan link, that way visitors would have some peace of mind. I understand it may not be practical, however this is a great community and it would be a shame to have its reputation ruined due to a lack of simple due diligence.

Apologies if this should have been posted elsewhere, I assumed this would be the most relevant place for the discussion given the subject matter. Thanks!

Thank you for being with us, we do our best to keep this forum clean and safe, so only trusted users can post on our community. They have reliable sources, unfortunately being a small community we can't check every file, many of the reports turned out to be false positive, but if infected applications are found the links are removed immediately. Please report it as soon as you find an infected application!
We apologize for any inconvenience!
