Thumbs down NOTICE: GameFront's "Terrible" File Hosting FAQ

I don't host any files or upload hardly any, but for the people that do this must suck big time. I can see a lot of old UT99/UT2004/UT3 maps and mods just disappearing completely if not hosted somewhere else. It's a good thing I'm almost done downloading what I want.

Anyway, here's what's in the link:
http://www.gamefront.com/file-hosting-faq/

GameFront File Hosting Rules Changelog – 11-05-2012
On July 19, 2012, several new rules regarding GameFront's file hosting service are going into effect.

1. New deletion rules for registered user files:
These rules will go into effect on July 19, 2012. After that date, files uploaded to a registered user account will need 1 download every 60 days to avoid deletion. If a "user file" is not downloaded at least once in a sixty day period, it will be automatically deleted due to inactivity. If a user file receives at least 1 download every sixty days, it will stay on GameFront indefinitely. This rule will affect new files you upload, as well as files you already store on the site. After July 19, 2012, if files uploaded to your user account have not been downloaded at least 1 time in a 60 day period, they will be deleted.

2. Allowed file types:
Only files listed on our whitelist below will be accepeted by the system.

3. New video file rules:
Gameplay videos must be in one of the formats listed below on our whitelist, and must be 10 minutes long or less.

PS: If you want to submit one of your UT99/UT2004/UT3 stuffs to the official GameFront general archive that preventing get deleted from the site through your dashboard, here's how at the link: http://forums.epicgames.com/threads/674369

The more you upload, people from territories that are not listed above will get an 403 error from the file you uploaded, and the files from your dashboard will be deleted for 60 days for inactivity. To all UT modders, DON'T USE GameFront anymore! Use MediaFire, UTzone.de, Dropbox or any file hosting sites instead!

PS: Some file hosting sites (like MediaFire) have possible limitations for free account in terms of storage size, upload size limit, traffic/bandwidth and expiration. If you don't know then, here's the link and see the difference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compari...sting_services (or see the following from file hosting sites)

I created this thread for solely purpose that old and new people may not wish visited to GameFront site. Thank you for reading this.

Cordially,
Private Tux (formerly Tux Android)

Thanks for the info on the epic thread
I will spread it around!

Over at UT99.org there is a big effort at the moment to go hunting and downloading
http://www.ut99.org/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=4005

The best place to submit your archives of Unreal stuff is at UT-files
http://news.ut-files.com
No adds, no fluff, just easy to find files.

If you do it through a partner site like moddb or mapraider there's a chance it might stay a bit more indefinite.

I have been informed by FeraliDragon that yes, if you upload via ModDB, they should be permanent.

Anyone who already has uploads at risk, can log in and "submit" the file for permanent storage.
CaptainSnarf over at the Epic games forum has posted what you need to know about keeping you mods and maps safe on ModDB File/GameFront.

This long and seemingly arbitrary country list is pretty bizarre and unworthy of the internet age. I was also on the page in question, only I couldn't find any reason given for these measures.

First post is updated.

PS: If this thread is in the UT3 sub-forum, may I duplicate this thread in any sub-forums? Thanks.
