: Reply to the topics you read at least with a simple "Thank you" . Do not hestitate to share your comments with us.

: This is an International English forum, so please kindly post up everything in English. Kindly provide a translation if you were to share topics in other languages.

: Moderators, please do not remove any download links, they spent their time to upload. Appreciate them.

: Do not hotlink any files unless the uploaders gave you permissions. Bandwidth is a privilege, not a right.

: Here are some examples of some free file hosting servers. There are more.

1. Megaupload [MU] - A very good file hosting server, but not useful for Malaysians and Singaporeans unless you download their Megatoolbar. Very useful for big files, strongly recommended for non-Malaysians and non-Singaporeans. (not sure about other countries)

2. MediaFire [MF] - Another very good file hosting server, mostly files will last forever like MU do. Strongly recommend.

3. 4shared [4S] - A very good file hosting server too, not sure if the files will expire. Strongly recommend if you need to organise them nicely under folders.

4. SendSpace [SS] - A good file hosting server, but the files will expire if the file is not active, premium account user will last forever. Max upload file size is 300 MB. *thumbs up*

5. FileBam [FB] - A typical file hosting server, inactive files will be deleted.

6. ShareBee [SB] - Once you upload from there, there'll be download links for other servers such as MU, zShare and etc. Useful for uploaders who always upload to a few servers.

7. zShare [zS] - Another good file hosting server, but definitely not for big files. It provides preview of audios and videos. Useful as well.

8. Evil Share - I personally dislike this site, as they contain porn ads.

9. Filesend [FS] - No comment

10. USA upload - No comment

: Upload and host pictures yourself! We disallowed hotlinking pictures in this forum. You can upload your images using the button when you post a topic or reply. Click for instructions.
You may also upload images using:

1. Photobucket - It requires to register. The Fotoflexer provided allows you to edit your images.

2. ImageShack - A very good image hosting server, pictures will last forever if you have an account. They provide some useful plug-ins which is very useful for instant picture uploading.

3. Flickr - It is more like for blogs to me.

4. TinyPic - Not familiar with this. Banned Malaysian.

: Please credit your source where you share your stuff. You might just credit the very first place of that info/links and etc. Credits yourself if you found and create them yourself, if you want to.
example: ABCD@Gossip-Whatever

: Hide codes are only allowed in the Download section and Spamming section. You can choose not to hide your links. We like spoilers more and hide codes.

: Respect the staffs. They are doing their best to maintain this forum. They are the one helping out admin and sharing stuffs with you all. Please do not bash.

: Respect everyone as a human being. No posts, threads, or media that treat anyone in a derogatory manner, discuss false rumors (i.e., cosmetic surgeries) even if you anti them. Sorry, but we do not welcome anti-fans.

: Do not create threads of something like "Searching for new friends", "Searching for girlfriends" and etc. in this forum. Posting in About You considered as finding new friends plus introducing yourself.

: Do not post fake pictures of yourself, there's no point of doing it. We do not judge you by your looks and this is the internet. No point for faking yourself.

: We will warn members if you broke the rules. And if any member noticed someone breaking the rules, please kindly inform the Admins and Moderators. Your help is appreciated.
