How to handle locators if not hosting to Maniapark?

Post by Trackmaniack » 01 Sep 2011, 03:23

All right, so I've got some skins I want to put up--but since several of them are, as defined by Maniapark, simply recolors of other skins, they're not going to let me host them there...so where can I upload them that's public, has fairly fast bandwidth, and can be easily found by locators?

Dropbox is a good alternative, i belive you can get up to 2GB free when you sign up. Just upload it to the public section to allow linking...

http://www.dropbox.com/

or you could use the many file hosting websties..

Dropbox should like to turn off the upload, when there is too much traffic on it. So i don't know if that is a good option. Good that i have my own payed webspace, but for that i self don't know good free hosters, when some exists, for me is that still only a Urban Myth. ^^

On a basic dropbox account you have 10GB/day per file before they delete that one file. So I don't think hosting on dropbox is a problem. Source: https://www.dropbox.com/help/45
We watch carefully for any fraudulent use of Dropbox public links and will suspend suspicious links when they are detected. Links that use up more than 10GB/day for Basic (free) accounts and 250GB/day for Pro (paid) accounts are automatically suspended.
The only question is what they define as "fraudulent use". Dunno if direct linking is forbidden....

Chevron, that requires a paid membership for zips, hence I can't see its use (unless you're really looking to shell out some cash) for locs.

I also suggest dropbox, so long as one places it in the public directory there are no issues using it.

I'm trying Chevron's solution and it seems to work. I haven't tested the locator ig yet, but I don't see no reason why it wouldn't work. (Also, free.)

Dropbox. I make locators on dropbox. Or get an FTP server, I also have one.

Maybe I just misinterpreted their "Zip Files / Folders" to mean upload the said things, rather than zip them once they are within the cloud, in which case I revoke my comments about the service. If it works all is good!
