    Filehosts:


    1. File download links are only permitted on the following basis

    a. All filehost download links must be in direct "clickable" form. For example, do not incorporate download links in "Quote/Code" boxes that involve copy & paste!

    b. Each download link must link directly to a download file! Links to folders are not permitted!

    c. Do not use link-shorteners/anonymisers or suchlike.

    d. No links to Premium Only downloads! Downloads must be available to everyone.

    2. Mandatory Filehost Links

    >> File download links MUST utilise one or more of the filehosts listed below <<

    a. Share-online : http://www.share-online.biz

    b. Depositfiles : http://www.depositfiles.com

    c. Uploaded : http://www.uploaded.net

    d. Zippyshare : http://www.zippyshare.com

    e. Mega : https://mega.co.nz

    f. Solidfiles : http://www.solidfiles.com

    g. Keep2share: http://keep2share.cc/

    h. Tezfiles: https://tezfiles.com/

    3. Optional Filehost Mirrors

    a. Optional "mirror" links to filehosts not on the above list may be posted in addition if desired, but only on a "one for one" basis with corresponding mandatory filehost links! This means that for each mandatory filehost link posted in a thread, one optional mirror link is permissible.

    b. Oboom, Uploaded and Rapidgator are not permitted to be used in conjunction with one another as optional filehost mirrors, unless a third Mandatory filehost (such as Depositfiles or zippyshare) are also offered as a download option.

    c. When quoting pairs of filehosts (mandatory plus an optional mirror), any use of highlighting, colour, large or distinctive fonts must be common to both links! In other words, do not attempt by means of the manner of presentation to favour or "promote" an optional link!

    d. Posts/threads with missing or inoperative mandatory filehost links will be trashed, so don't submit a post/thread without one, with the intention of adding it later!

    e. Check filehost links as you post them, and monitor them for a while afterwards, because being persistently associated with missing or dead mandatory filehost links will not make you popular!

    4. Supplementary Hosts

    Filehost links added at a later time (Supplementary Hosts) to an existing thread must also follow the above "one for one" principle - the cumulative total of optional "mirror" filehosts in a thread must not exceed that of the corresponding mandatory filehost links. For additional rules governing the use of Supplementary Hosts, read the Rules Thread of the forum in which you are posting.​

    5. Splitting of Download Files

    a. Download file splitting considered unnecessary or excessive will lead to trashing of posts/threads! Primary file splits (part 1) should be no less than 300 Mb in size! Files under 400Mb can't be split. 401 - 600 can be split in two parts. 601 - 900 into 3 parts. Anything above 901 can be split into four or more, as long as most of the splits average 300 MB or more.​


    b. If download files are split when using mandatory/optional filehost pairs, the same split must be applied on both filehosts, and the split files on each filehost must be interchangeable!

    Failing to follow the Filehost rules will lead to thread or post deleting/trashing! Persistently doing so will lead to a ban!
