  File Upload System! - Network News
  Posted by: Ronnie on 02-15-2008 @ 16:30
This News Item has been viewed 679,483 times
As some of you know we have been working on a file upload system for a while now. We've had our fair share of problems with it but we can finally say that it's ready to go. The long overdue system's pretty sweet and I'll detail out some of the key elements below.

The upload system is located at /upload/, or just click on the link on the left menu. The submission page contains some submission rules and guidelines which you need to follow for you to submit your file the proper way.

After uploading and filling out all the necessary file information, you can upload screenshots to accompany your file. You can upload up to 30 screenshots. There is also a 30 minute time limit before the page 'locks' and you can no longer add additional screenshots. Please do not include the screenshots in the zip file, this is a waste of bandwith for all of us.

If you've already submitted a file recently and are waiting for it to go up then you can either wait patiently or resubmit it via the new upload system which will speed it up. Please do not submit files via e-mail anymore unless absolutely necessary.

That's it, really. Everything is pretty self explanatory so there shouldn't be any problems.

If you have any questions or other remarks, please post a comment below.

Thank goodness. It always was a pain having to download and then reupload large files, this should make the whole process much quicker.

Hopefully this will be especially handy for people producing larger mods, typically the type that are too large for e-mail. Anything that takes out the middle-man is a wonderful thing. smile

No... unless your only job was uploading files to the FTP. Files still need to be added to the site by staff, just like it's always been.

Well, I guess I'm out of a job then... at least on Elderscrolls files. Do the files still show up on the main page of the FF site?

Hey good folk

I got a freshly made urban map to upload, gonna check out the new system, but make some pretty screenshots first....

Extra great for all those that couldn't send large attachments with their regular email service.

Keep innovating!

No, this is defiantly real. Well, unless I hallucinated testing it with Ronnie and finding all the bugs. big grin

They still need to be approved by staff before they go onto the site. Its just a heck of a lot easier and quicker now.

Files still require validation, we're not quite at the PCGameMods stage yet.

It was easier for me to just send it through e-mail. But I don't mind spending an extra minute if it helps the staff out or gets my file up quicker.

Congrats on getting it working though, I know how long these things take to get just right.

I'd like to commend Ronnie for his excellent work on this long overdue feature! Great Job Ronnie!

As for automated submissions, I don't think we'll ever do this as it is not only subject to a lot of abuse but also takes away the value we add in the form of reviews and some minimal standards (no we will not host your map that is just an untextured box big grin)

Future revisions may include the ability to review past and/or pending submissions based on username or IP address, but for now, just enjoy the current feature!!!
