Gentlemen- I would like to remind everyone who is uploading cars/Tracks/Tools, etc. to take special care to read the upload rules. I have had the misfortune of finding too many discrepancies in many of the uploads which have necessitated thier removal from the site.
Infractions of these uploads include the following:
- Files being submitted WITHOUT the proper readme files
- Cars being uploaded without explicit permission from their original authors
- EMPTY files
- Performance files only
- Incorrect file size/type of Screenshots
- "Adult" content and unacceptable material
- "Work in progress" images of a car you intend to upload later !
the list goes on.
As far as submitting "Packs" of mulitple cars/tracks/tools…it is always best to submit them individually- noone wants to spend an endless amount of time waiting for downloads- especially those people who are using dial-up internet connections.
Adding a Cars/Tracks/Tool, etc. to the site is quite a simple process and I ask all of those concerned to take the time to read the rules and requirements specified- I must stress the importance of including a Readme file and keeping the filenames to 8 characters or less (no spaces or special characters).
Please keep your file names as short as possible, 8 alphanumeric characters is preferred but, submitting a car with the name "'69chargerfastandfuriouslimited", etc…..is just unacceptable- also, please do not use any special characters- numbers, letters, underscores and hyphens only, please.
Make sure that the files you are uploading are either "free" to upload or that you have Complete Authorization
from their original authors to upload them here.
Anyone who knowingly abuses the uploads section by adding tracks, cars, etc. which are not their own and did not have permission to add them to the site, will not only have those file(s) be removed but your account will be blocked indefinitely !
The rules are clearly posted in the upload script and in order to submit an upload you must "agree" to the posted rules- therefore, read and re-read this announcement carefully…theft of files will not be tolerated, let's all be honorable and abide by the rules.
