hmmm i dont know if the situation has changed since the orig. owners have taken back over. In the past a map I have submitted was eventually deleted from filefront. Files get deleted when they dont get enough download traffic, so possibly submitting your map to filefront has bought its traffic up to an acceptable level and it hasnt been deleted.
Im certainly not against submitting to filefront, its another way to promote your map However if they decide to delete it from their library, you will still get the courtesy email with 4 days notice BUT you will not be able to veto the deletion. Peeps should bear this in mind when they submit maps to filefront and also host them on another site as well that doesnt delete. This stops peeps having trouble getting your maps when you go awol (as a few mappers have leaving only dead links)
Please note this info is from when the old management was in effect. I have no idea if the current operators have varied this.
It seems the 'submit to filefront' button is back, and appears on your content page when you are logged into your account. You should use this button if you don't want your file to end up in the deletion queue
I am working on a way to get the content updated instantly when submitted, but until then unless it's a compressed file for one of the redirects (updates every hour) then you'll have to wait until I move it to the correct location. There are many ways to contact me, and I generally get online every day.
peeps like skillz, JamieSI and zunnie, are doing a great job of making sure this isnt an issue by mirroring most maps off their own initiative. I love the direct download ut-files offers too. One click and your downloading......
Way better than two pages and mega ads on filefront (with the page loading randomness that the ads seems to give.... )
Yeah, I've been having far better luck with MediaFire than anybody, that I know of. At least there, you're guaranteed with files from that service. That's why I'm only doing beta versions with FileFront, and using MediaFire for final versions of mods or maps from now on...
