Forgot to add this... (not really a rule, but a footnote to rule #3)

3 - Addendum. Several active uploaders have also been hit by the recent wave of account deletions, jump-started by an emboldened copyright industry. Most notably, MediaFire, one of the most popular filehosts after MegaUpload, is now hard at work suspending accounts accused of hosting copyrighted material (an example here) so as to avoid ending like MegaUpload. Which means that throughout Winny, Novel Shoppu and the Dead Uploads section, there are thousands of dead MF links.

However, more or less at the same time this kind of setback started to manifest itself in earnest, a new bug appeared, causing active MediaFire links to display error messages instead of the download interface. The culprit at hand here is the anonymizer system used to prevent third parties from directly linking back to us. MediaFire no longer seems to tolerate automated redirectors and link anonymizers and thus displays an error message. Here's what you need to do to make the link work:

Just copy the link, either:
-- 1°) highlight the link if it's displayed in its entirety
or
-- 2°) right-click on the shortcut >> copy link address
...and paste it onto your browser's address bar.

Code: [Select]
http://www.anonym.to/?http://www.mediafire.com/?fileidstring
...Now remove the anonymizer part until only the MediaFire URL remains.

Code: [Select]
http://www.mediafire.com/?fileidstring
Then press enter and voilà.

Do not forget that MediaFire now figures very high on the list of filehosts to be avoided like the plague if you wish for your files to last much longer. Just check out this thread for a list of suitable alternatives.

NOVEL SHOPPU RULES - READ OR DIE!
« Reply #1 on: June 05, 2012, 03:50:23 AM »
Novel Shoppu is the most recent board on jcafe24, born from the need to separate novels from mangas in the overcrowded Winny Club. The rules that regulate the discussions and submission of new material are obviously one and the same for the two sections, but some members have recently come straight to Novel Shoppu without checking Winny Club first -which is where the rules are posted- and thus remain unfamiliar with the do's and don't's...most prominently how to make download links visible and the imperative need for spoiler tags...and that's just for starters. So, to clear up some of the confusion, I took the liberty of copy-pasting Winny Club's rules, with a few minute (context/comestically-oriented) changes.



Originally composed by Silverado - Original rules can be found here.



Forum Rules: Novel Shoppu v1.0 / Last modified: 2012/06/04

We have modified and added a few forum rules in order to make it cleaner and easier for you to use. If you see somebody violating the forum rules please remind that person with a nice private message.

1) Post content and Topic

Basically the title of a topic should represent the content. If the old topic title is "Ichiban Ushiro no Dai Maou volume 1-9+" and somebody added Volume 10, the new topic title should be -> "Ichiban Ushiro no Dai Maou volume 1-10+" .

1.1) Choose A Proper Title

The topic title contains only the correct and full series title and the volume numbers of the whole topic (including volumes posted by other users). If you want to share additional information like description or language write it inside the post. Title descriptions are NOT wanted!

Incorrect Example:
Quote (selected)
Mayo Chiki! chinese!!!!
(wrong name, unnecessary description)

Correct Example:
Quote (selected)
Mayo Chiki! volume 1-11+
   = for ongoing
Quote (selected)
Wolf and Spice volume 1-17 complete
=for complete

1.1.1) Update Content & Title

New uploads and links have to be verified and added by the topicstarter to the first post.

1.1.2) Post Chapter Contents in Yellow!

Hide the newest chapter content that contains significant amount of spoilers by posting it in yellow color.

Code: [Select]
[color=yellow]This is a spoiler posted in yellow, mark the text with the mouse to read it.[/color]
e.g. This is a spoiler posted in yellow, mark the text with the mouse to read it.

1.2 Post Download Links AND REFERENCES In Spoilers. Only links to informational sites like Mangaupdates, Animenewsnetwork and such are allowed without being wrapped in the spoiler tag.

Code: [Select]
[spoiler]
[url=www.thisisanexample.com]Title Volume RAW[/url]
[/spoiler]


1.3) Required Userrank for Downloads

Newly registered users are ranked as jGhost and can neither post in Winny Club or Novel Shoppu, nor see download links.
In order to see the download links, every user has to write at least 1 non-spam post in another section such like an introduction post in the Forum Community.  For more information, read the Newbie FAQ.

1.3.1) J-Ghost Spam Protection
Inside Winny Club/Novel Shoppu, J-Ghost members are restricted to their own topics. They cannot post in other user topics besides their own. Outside Winny Club/Novel Shoppu they can post normally.

1.3.2) Zombie Link Protection Act
In order to fight the increasing number of zombie links (dead links who remain in topics) all topic owners (who created the topic) are granted the ability to moderate their own topics, modify posts and delete old links. Topic owners are told to act carefully and tolerant towards chatter and discussions and to not disturb the discussion flow. Only very old posts or dead links legitimate a complete deletion of the post. Deletions will be monitored by our staff team.

1.3.3) Linking To Third Party Sites
It is not allowed to post download links to certain sites. All upload topics linking to those sites and have no mirror links are considered DEAD and shall be moved to the Dead Upload section. Here is a list of those sites:

- Mangahelpers.com

1.4) Use This Content Form

You can copy this upload form:

Code: [Select]
Title:   Author:
[img]
[/img]

[quote]Synopsis:
[/quote]

[spoiler]
[url= ]Title Volume RAW[/ur]
[/spoiler]

Example:

Code: [Select]
[size=14pt][url=Series profile on some informational website]Series title[/url][/size]
by [url=Author's profile on some informational website][u]Author's name[/u][/url]

[img]www.PICTURE.com[/img]

[quote]Summary of the story, if not available try to write at least a sentence to describe the RAW[/quote]

[spoiler]
[url=www.thisisanexample.com]Title Volume RAW[/url]
[/spoiler]


2.)   Use ProJPEG To Compress Big Images
ProJPEG is a program to compress the size of files, if you have a *.png u have to change the mode into RGB before u can save it!

2.1)  If you want your series to appear on the blog, your picture has to have a width of exactly 400 px and an approximate size of 50KBs!
On the board please try to keep try to keep the file size below 100KBs!

3)  U.S. FILE HOSTS ARE BANNED FROM JCAFE!
US ISPs are going to start traffic monitoring by 07.12.2012

Thx, for following the rules and happy uploading!
