If you've been using filefront for your mods, you've probably had your files deleted at one point or another without warnings. Other times, your files may end up in the deletion queue and if you don't log in within three days your stuff also gets deleted.
To keep filefront from doing this, and to make your file a permanent part of Filefront, you have to 'submit' your file to Filefront. It is not enough to just upload it.
To submit your file, while logged in to Filefront, click on the download link for one of your files. You should see a 'Submit to Filefront' link next to the 'manage file' box.
Here is a screenshot (click to see the large version):Submit to FileFront
Upon approval, your file will become part of FileFront's vast file library. This is a great way to promote any gaming-related file to a huge audience. Whether it's a map you've designed or a mod you've programmed, take advantage of the exposure it will receive on FileFront!
Please note: Once a file has been uploaded to the FileFront database you will no longer be able to modify the file.
Hopefully this will save you from wasted effort. I have a lot of content. Re-uploading and fixing links repeatedly has been painful. Since submitting is a permanent process, I'd recommend you only submit release builds.
