We are very sorry this took a while but we're having a bit of a mod-shortage during the summer holidays. Also, we needed some time to discuss a few possible solutions.
Recently people have been contacting us about uploads to the community, and we've been pointed to various other places in which people have expressed their dissatisfaction with the current situation. We realize that people have different opinions - some people would prefer to have access to media as soon as possible, while others would prefer to wait for proper, higher quality material and consider things like YouTube rips as spam. At the moment we don't wish to put any restrictions on quality since not everyone's computer has the capacity for high quality downloads.
We came up with a few things regarding uploads and we would like your feedback and suggestions because ultimately, this is not the mods' community, but YOUR community.
What should be done about uploading rules?
A "ONE POST" solution. One particular file (show/episode/magazine) will only be featured in ONE SINGLE POST. The first user to post a file will have to maintain the post, which means when other users comment on the post with higher quality files or with files in a different format, the original poster is obliged to edit the post to include the other files there. This should make it easier to find what you're looking for in whatever quality you need, provided that it's available.
A "MULTIPLE POSTS" solution. One particular file (show/episode/magazine) will be featured in MULTIPLE POSTS. This is basically what we're currently doing, but in this case, we're going to introduce "post formats" that everyone will have to stick to. There will be a template put up in the rules post that people can copy/paste. This will ensure neater-looking posts.
No change. Leave the rules as they are.
