You guys don't listen, do you?

What the hell does this have to do with sharing online? I'm so fucking tired of all this fear mongering.

It means that all uploaders living in ACTA states might lose their internet connection and be banned from their ISP after uploading copyright infringing materials three times.

It also requires all ISP to now officially store IP and connection data by law, bypassing the previous court decision by the national courts against mandatory data storage.

This is a fucking nightmare. Forget Megaupload, you might never upload anything in your life if this becomes national law.

I understood that, just i reached a point where i had enough. I live in Hungary. Because of the US we suffered loses from the year '56. Then came the global economic disaster which started from the US, then they started this copyright shit. And my government agreed to this idiotic ACTA  :p!ssed: nightmare. I'm so fed up with my government, who dosen't even care about us, they killing us slowly and painfully. The net was my "safe heaven" if they took our liberty from here, i don't care about the whole thing anymore, i'm gonna go postal on them.

There's a lot of fear mongering regarding this. It's not as bad as many say, but it won't solve the global problem too, it will be a huge failure.

But it isn't what many of you have been saying. As the bro above me says, this isn't what it seems.

-No, it won't shut webhosts.
-No it won't force ISPS to trace your activities the 24h of the day.
-And no, the 3 strike bullshit isn't even in the draft.

So stop panicking.

I don't like it as much anymore ^^'
I've tried uploading some files over night and got error several times. (on files over 50MB though). It continued to upload only when i manually dismissed the error and removed the file that caused error (and that sucked because it happens with one 250MB at 99% upload so i have to reupload it again <_<). But that doesn't mean that other people will have same problem.

On mission to find next personal favorite :)

Oh well, even if it's true; it's still useful for uploading small files such as single chapters...

I'm liking this one, may try it out in the future.

Also, for those who are getting blocked from Uploaded.to because of recent country restrictions, I've confirmed that Tor will allow you to download from Uploaded.to:
Sorry, please read the forum rules to see why you can't view spoilers and why you can't post in this forum section. Thank you!

Though it's a bit slow on the DL, it's better than being blocked off completely, and a bit easier than having to use a different proxy site/link generator all the time. Haven't tried out any other restricted sites yet.

EDIT: Oh, some good news, a blog that I was using to get magazine raws that went down has come back up.


Which, which?

It's server is in NETHERLANDS and the registrar is directnic.com (CAYMAN ISLANDS).

This is another GOOD alternative; I've added it to the big list  :megane:

From my experience and Mediafire staff concur with this (from a recent interview by the CEO), is that everything hosted on MF lasts forever UNLESS it is reported to be removed. Manga, is an extremely rare case anyway. It's just mostly anime, films, music, and sometimes software. I have quite a lot of manga archived on my MF account, including the Okusan raws that I once shared (posted by someone else on jcafe) via my blog. At one point I even had 23 volumes of Countach without a single download by anyone in 2 years (deleted it myself though). That said, I'd stick with MF because it doesn't affect the manga scene in comparison to the anime, film, and music.

If MF is not going to used for what ever the reasoning is, the only safest option I see are cloud storage providers such as Dropbox, SkyDrive, Box.net and many more. Others are either unreliable or pay hosts with time limits and non-parallel downloading web-sites.

No, sendspace blocks IP address from certain countries...

Its registrar and server are also in US...

I'm currently trying out http://refile.net seems ok for upload/download, but than again i'm not the best person to say that as both my UL and DL are pretty slow. There is captcha before download and they delete files 30 day after last download same as bayfile, i just don't like how both of them do not enable folder sharing, but i guess thatch a luxury now.

Let's remember to wrap spoiler tags around links that lead to raw providing sites.


Of course, we mustn't forget to put spoiler tags around links to uploaded file hosts.

Speaking about protection for the links, I remember there is another raw manga provider website (cannot remember the name) that whenever you click on their download links, a new window will be opened and then you can download the file.

If you wait for too long before clicking on the download links, you need to refresh the manga page otherwise when you try to click on the download links, you will see a message saying that the link is expired/cannot be found in big black letters...

Could we have this kind of protection implemented here ?

I second this. It's fast, fast, fast, and did I mention it's fast?

Usenet would be the most reliable option because it's got the best of both p2p and DDLs. The files propagate to multiple servers operated by totally different companies so one company can't just delete a file, but they're all stored on dedicated servers so you don't have to deal with the agony of slow seeders like torrents. The only problem is that ISPs that used to offer access to usenet/newsgroups for free aren't anymore. Usenet costs moolah :/ more than regular file hosts.

Bayfiles.com seems to be fast and convenient, but the domain still lies in US jurisdiction which means: don't put all your eggs in one basket. Since we've discussed enough file hosts and created awareness to the mediafire problem, I'm going to merge this topic with Discuss Free File Hosts

I recommend we start using Bayfiles. It's run by the founders of The Pirate Bay. I've just tested it and it's excellent for free users.

1. 5GB maximum file size.
2. Multithreading and resuming allowed. Multithreading is splitting your download into chunks and opening a separate connection for each chunk to increase the overall speed.
3. It's fast. I'm downloading at 1.0-1.5 MB/sec

The whole reason that the federal government is cracking down on file sharing sites is because next to IRC the downloads in terms of tracing who is downloading a file is in most cases next to impossible. I would say this is a scare tactic by the federal government to scare people like us into using something that is completely traceable like torrents. So be very wary of using torrents because they leave behind a very traceable trail for the fed's to follow.

Unfortunately for the fed's, many torrents already implemented tools that leave no traces of your activity.

Is it that good? If it is, then i'm happy to found that article that mentioned it.

Yep, it doesn't have any waiting time and max file size is 5 GB [!]

Too bad that the uploaded files will be deleted if there is no download within 30 days.

Well, that's too bad but at least it's better than nothing...

I've added not only the location of servers but also of registrars in the list; you should wary of filehosts that have servers in non-US and non-US affiliated countries but with registrars located in US...

I just checked the TOS and at the bottom I see this :
"Hong Kong, 2011.08.03"

I just checked that their server is in SWEDEN but the company is in HONGKONG :kukukuh:

I don't see any limitations on how many files can be uploaded (max file size 5 GB) and nothing is mentioned about how long the files will be stored...

I'm still worried whether it can still be blocked since the company that manage .com is based in US but I will use it as additional backup.

Added it to the list.   

Files stored 30 days since last download

Quote (selected)
However, this deletion shall only take place after 30 days have passed since the end of the last download. If a file has not been accessed for download, the minimum storage period of 30 days shall begin with the completion of upload.

Rapid8 is working for me right now, but it has a ton of popup-ads (and it won't let you use its functions if you use an adblocker on the site), and there's a limit to the number of downloads you can generate within a given time frame I believe.



Thanks for the info.

Too bad they're running out of uploaded.to account so I cannot download for now...

Anybody tried this one out?

http://bayfiles.com/

One of our online tech magazine wrote that they can be the successors of megaupload.


I just checked the TOS and at the bottom I see this :
"Hong Kong, 2011.08.03"

I just checked that their server is in SWEDEN but the company is in HONGKONG :kukukuh:

I don't see any limitations on how many files can be uploaded (max file size 5 GB) and nothing is mentioned about how long the files will be stored...

I'm still worried whether it can still be blocked since the company that manage .com is based in US but I will use it as additional backup.

Added it to the list.

This.

I'm pretty much just browsing 2ch daily to see if any new raw providing sites are popping up. Even ones that updated daily have been frozen still for a while now. Uploaded.to isn't available to my country, so I have to use a link generating site to gain access to its files.

Bungaku, my country also doesn't allow me to access uploaded.to (ul.to).

Could you share with us which website you use to generate the links from uploaded.to ?

Thanks in advance

rawmangaspot.com have quite a number of raw chapters in uploaded.to which cannot be found anywhere...

This is why this topic is here, to discuss new file hosts, post alternatives while ranting about the corporations.

Exactly what RAW source has been deleted? :spurt: :huh:

A certain blog, if I'm not mistaken. The problem is that we're not the only ones being dragged kicking and screaming deep into the shitter; even the Japanese raw-providing scene is experiencing significant difficulties redistributing their stuff, as they largely favored hosts like Filesonic (most tankoubons were on FS), MU and UploadStation.

Now they're switching to FreakShare and Uploaded.to, neither of which is to my liking due to low DL speeds...but I guess that some individuals witnessed all their work turning into vapor and got discouraged, preferring to stop instead of trying again.

Noticed how few new volumes were posted lately? Everybody's indecisive as to what to switch to.
...
Or even if it's worth the bother uploading again.

I know there are some people uploading to uploaded.to, but is there any way to access them using proxy or such for people in US?

Re: Megaupload taken down by the Feds, and my topics and threads

Finally a topic like this! I have been looking at forums that have used megaupload links and none have really bitched about it yet haha. They just switched to another, like mediafire as they have mostly been using at least 2 to 3 file sharing sites anyways. The thing is, I do agree that it would really be an insane job trying to fix every dead link now because of this lost. It hurt me too. I had premium for both megaupload and filesonic. Lucky for me I listened to my sister and resisted buying the lifetime membership for file sharing sites. Imagine my anger if I did buy them haha.

This however does poses a very real issue to us. What is going to happen to the internet now?

Well, it s not just file hosts, but web hosting will also become much more difficult:

http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/news/2011/07/paypal-joins-london-police-bid-to-financially-starve-illegal-websites.ars


Paypal received too much power when it became ebay's number one payment method... And now there are no alternatives to them...
They only turn the anger of hacker groups upon them again...

Stupid, a lot of illegal transactions go over paypal, not even the small number of donations/pays for scanlation groups&sites and other fanbased stuff included...

Sorry, please read the forum rules to see why you can't view spoilers and why you can't post in this forum section. Thank you!
