Honored Phun admins/mods,
Firstly, I applaud you all for taking the step to modify and rework the filehost rules.
But um... I think the "average joe" user might be a bit confused by the new rules, so maybe include some examples? I mean, I'm not confused at all, no sir.
Just to clarify, i totally get the mandatory filehost rules... no problem there. But the optional filehost rule:
>Optional Filehost Mirrors
>In addition, optional "mirror" links to other filehosts may be posted 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 permitted.
So, if a user wants to post 3 optional filehosts in his uploads, he MUST post links to Rapidshare, Depositfiles, AND Hotfile, correct? So an uploader is limited to posting only 3 optional filehosts no matter what, correct?
Then the supplementary filehost rule:
>Filehost links added later (Supplementary Hosts) to an existing thread must also follow the above principle - that the cumulative total of >optional "mirror" filehosts in a thread must not exceed that of the corresponding mandatory filehost links.
So, if I'm reading that correctly, supplementary filehosts can be added, so long as a total of 3 optional filehosts have not been posted, other users can add supplementary filehosts?
Let's say for example, this post:
I've used both Rapidshare and Depositfiles and added an optional filehost (Toucansharing). So, if user "Joe" wanted to added "Joefilehosting" mirror links of my upload, he would need to post mandatory Hotfile links first THEN he can add his "Joefilehosting" links, right? And if he did that, no supplementary filehosts could be added, since all mandatory filehosts have been used, correct?
Just wanted to be clear on that point... it may help adding examples in the Filehost rules section, to avoid future confusion as well.
