Already moved most of my files. All that's left is a few choice archives, and a whole lotta images. Any ideas for a decent image sharing service that isn't imgur or imageshack?

After multiple e-mails back and forth with MF, the sent me this.

 

Thank you for your patience. I apologize for this inconvenience as it appears these files were removed in error. While we have uncovered the bug which caused this problem and resolved it, we unfortunately weren't able to restore your deleted files.  
 
However we can assure you that your files are no longer at risk, and that you can continue to upload and distribute files freely.  If there's anything else we can do to help please let us know.

 

Files were still randomly flagged as broken or encrypted. Several e-mails back and forth trying to explain that, they sent me this.

 

Thanks for your patience regarding this issue.  Our development team has resolved the bug which was causing your files to be incorrectly flagged, so they should now download without restriction.  If you find there are any more incidents like this one please let us know and we will investigate ASAP.

 

I think they rolled out there new format, (that looks an awful lot like MEGA)  and in the process screwed up there whole system. Some poor programmer just got fired... or promoted.

I suppose I had posted one of those threads.  I've found mega to be pretty good, no issues yet. Although it's a colossal pain in the butt to move ~100 mods but worth it, I believe. Mediafire just blew away anything with no rhyme or reason. Seems really random and the ticket I opened with them has gotten me nowhere. Abandon ship.

From what I checked on my MF account, in addition to anonymous blue-rinsed informers, like Youtube they seem to have deployed bots that are designed to scan files and check them against a database of copyrighted works (one of my MP3s -- with an obfuscated filename -- got flagged, so I had to delete it immediately) or keywords associated with purportedly offensive content.

 

Fuck, tech support would rather bother with paid premium users.

I'm a big fan of min.us their TOS specifically allows porn, (unlike imgur, which just doesn't delete porn unless it's reported), it has a nice UI and hotlinking is alowed/enabled, so I can upload to min.us and embed inside forum posts and such.

Are you sure? I checked for the hell of it, and:

 

 

The following types of files constitute "abuse" and may not be uploaded under any circumstances, when using Minus Inc's services:
 
Files that violate any law or may be considered to violate any law.
Files that infringe on the copyrights of any entity excluding the user.
Non-image files. This includes archived non-image files.
Adult content and pornography.
Gore or "shock" images that are that are intended to be offensive, disgusting and/or disturbing to viewers.

huh, they must have changed it -- it used to say something like "Adult content is allowed except where prohibited by law including child pornography."

er.
i wonder what is the size of the problem?

how many users here at loverslab need some sort of place to host/store mod/game related files?

how much storage are we talking about in total?

how much bandwidth are we talking about in total?

 

can everyone move to using torrents if the files are bigger than what the forum here will allow to upload?

Torrents are okay if there is someone gracious to seed the files constantly without disruption, but the way I look at it, some leechers just break off after downloading the files.

Its Fascism! They are cutting thier noses to spite thier faces now. The download speeds have gone to pot as well, or at least that is what I am experiencing now, I have not reached that limit of downloads I can make, being careful about it before they want to squeeze blood out of me. I wont be using them from now on for uploads. I had a couple of gigabytes stored at Megaupload before the fascists shut that down. Lost the lot. Now I am storing what I can to my portable drive, it is becoming a pain in the rectum though.The world is being taken over by morons! 

 

I know some folk who are now using dropbox as they dont like 4shared.

The problem with using torrents is that ISPs are monitoring use of them now, one friend who was using 'talktalk' as his internet provider got totally cut off, the reason they gave was directly related to his use of torrents!

The file (SexoutNG - Data.fomod) violates the MediaFire Terms of Service. Due to it being distributed from your account, it has been removed. Also, a Strike has been placed against your account and can lead to a termination of service.

Not that that had been updated since.. October. Novermber. Somewhere in there.

As they have the DMCA systems in place and running, in effect they're culling off any accounts considered in violation of their automated IP system. So this leaves only corporate, MPAA, Business Software Alliance and RIAA users to access mediafail.

 

(P.S. Ignore the troll that tries to make a lame joke out of this.)
