Thanks catymag. As I posted a few months back, Fileserve is terribly unreliable for premium users, no support whatsoever and like you have posted, they're closing down. I would not recommend anyone buy a premium membership from them even if and when it comes available. It seems Wupload is the filesharing service of choice for now besides P2P but I hesitate to buy a premium membership from them not only because the speeds may be low due to congestion from everyone flocking to them, but they might go at any time. Can we use this thread or another one to report on the speeds and/or which sites are suitable options for those willing to buy a premium filesharing service?
If you upload with a personal account you will be traceable, better to upload anonymously and by proxi.
Torrent too arent safer too for users, that's why I suggested the above tool.... at least for now.
To download use jdownloader: always under proxi,naturally- Safety is more important than speed
new Download File & Image Uploader 5.x (6.1.6) available
has speed limiter
better proxy support (SOCKS, HTTP)
allows to bind to adapter/IP
works in Linux in Wine
alternative download location #1: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
alternative download location #2: File & Image Uploader at BrotherSoft
Download skinsjust decompress inside the folder with .exe
DLL's necessary for some hostsSSL libraries to connect to HTTPS secured sites
just decompress inside the folder with .exe
necessary for uploadjockey.com, youtube.com, ifile.it, turboshare.com
believe me it's great
I will try to explain a bit my thoughts when i read in threads downloads are slow.
No offence please.
Some weeks ago when the FBI closed Megaupload and consequently many host sites deleted all their links, we realized to had a bunch of threads with sad invalid links.
Many hosts changed their rules, so to upload files on their server should register and validate an email adress and IP.
Naturally none of our uploaders want to be traceable.
There are some workarounds but as you can guess ,uploads by proxi ,or other ways, are slow.
There are other problems : most of the hosts actually delete links made by anonymous users after 30 days.
Most of the hosts took advantage to give ,registered and premium users only, the possibility to download file quickly.
Most of the hosts dont accept uploads made by proxi.Most of the hosts scan files and delete quite at once copyrighted files.
So my question is : Better a slow download or no map to download and broken links in threads in our forum index?
So please be patient and try to appreciate our members efforts providing new maps and other maps threads links in this and in other forums.
I cant see many of these users and they're always the same ones ,many others just download and complains.

At the risk of getting my post trashed because it is [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], I like to thank you Catymag for taking the time and effort to give such a detailed explanation of the situation. I had no idea about the extent of the consequences the close-down of the recent FBI action on Megaupload had on the community. And with me, probably many others as well. Your post above makes it clear and it is now much easier to understand why downloads are not as trouble-free anymore as we were used to. Thank you!
Just a suggestion: maybe a link to [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] (click link) in the first post of each new map thread would be an idea.
Thanks for the explanation catymag. I particularly understand posters desires to find a solution that allows them remain anonymous!
I would certainly take this opportunity to thank all the posters who do a great job. I don't really think that people have been complaining unduly but if we give no feedback then posters aren't going to know which sites work and which don't.
I am an experienced downloader (and have contributed too). For me (and others), netload just does not work. I have tried all the links multiple times since they were posted all with the same results - a download that starts then stops after a couple of kb. Filefactory has been much better but requires a lot of patience and retries to get a free slot. I would consider a paid account but use them so infrequently and every poster seems to have a different preference.
I always think it is a great shame that using newsgroups has gone slightly out of fashion as they offer fault free downloading (although there is a learning curve to overcome to use them) and, (in my limited understanding), pretty anonymous posting.
