MBN Public FTP for all members on the forum

There is so many people that needs somewhere to dump big .zip files with LBA stuff they made etc. And they cant attach it to a forum post cause the file is too big! Thats really sad! So i thought: why not make a public mbn ftp server to dump all the freakin files. Every member should have access to upload And everyone in the world should have access to download either via the FTP or via HTTP..

I can help with the server if someone likes the idea

Its a good idea, but you need set up guidelines and rules, because space is money.

ie, only large files hosted for a small amount of time, anyone over using it gets their log-in blocked, ect.

(in case someone pass's it around, and you start getting people using it as just a completely public ftp..... that does happen)

And what would prevent from non-MBN people to host their files there?

Username-password?
Have a folder for each member, that has a password on it, and they can upload thier files there

ie, FTPxxx:\MBN\Pandy\music.midi.

Like Pandemona says .. Passwords !

I think i could manage a server with 60gb storage space with a pretty fast connection.. You know, only if the idea is something many, many people would like

I think they meant only active members will be getting an account (with a different password than on the MBN).

Yeah thats what i ment ChaosFish

Or then anyone else, as morshem says, could just registrer at the forum and gain ftp access

the FTP server should only be LBA related stuff anyways.. Except maybe some stuff made by the members wich they want to show US! not anyone else then they should just go find another place to dump their files

Yay. So I can simply change the name of my porn directory to twinsen.zip, and then upload it there .


Or maybe have someone to moderate the files uploaded

Would you do that if we had a FTP server anyways?
I dont think many people would do that.
Those who does should just get banned.. As if you attach pr0n pics to your posts on the MBN forum

I think it's a good idea, especially in the case of those who like to upload avatars and such.

Also, it would be cool to permanently have that stupid "Damn Communists!" pic online. I can't find it again.

Yeah CrazyBee it's a good ideia.

Also we can make a way for lba fans can share all of your lba files, using share programs or something like that.

In the first post I said that will be nice people share all LBA files and not directly upload in your server but a way that the people can see all files and download what they want (like share programs).
