Yeah, on a somewhat regular basis, just to ensure that files are accessible for longer.

Well, yeah, it seems silv has been out of the uploading swing for a while, as most novels nowadays are either digital rips, or scans, which works out the same as any manga volume.

so he just meant for leechers to re-up?

but what about 200kb for a novel? if the whole thing was an txt file ok, but no way otherwise. that is why i thought there is a possibility to transfer files to other hosts without reuploading them.

Remember when the shit hit the fan with mediafire for me, the Animeraider and his constant tragedies, Renegade334 and his mediafire accounts?
Well, I reckon silv is just trying to come up with a solution to the mass file loss that comes with the passage of time, and/or filehost copyright purges. No doubt every file posted here in the Winny is downloaded by at least one leecher. A mirroring system like the one silv has encouraged/proposed would save uploaders the hassle of having to up their files multiple times, or having to locate, and/or track down files that they no longer have.

Considering the recent influx of mega uploads,
I see myself forced to remind the community
why jcafe has always survived file host crack downs.

There are 3 simple reasons:

1. PROVIDE MIRRORS UPLOADS!

Whatever you want to upload, be it a novel, a manga, a chapter,
remember to give at least 1 additional mirror link to another upload!
I cannot stress this enough!
The manga and anime antipiracy machine is very active.
Do yourself a favor and upload those on multiple mirrors.

2. LINK DIRECTLY TO DOWNLOAD PAGES and not landing pages!

If you use multi upload services that upload files
on multiple different hosts simultanously,
you will be wise to post the direct links to the file host,
not the link to the landing page of the multi upload service.
They can easily delete the multi upload service link,
but they cannot delete all your mirrors from different hosts!
So, remember to link directly to the host, where the file is really lcoated.

3. DO NOT SHARE LINKS OUTSIDE jCAFE WITHOUT THE UPLOADERS APPROVAL!

Some guys here run their own raw website and
I encourage them to spread the raws as it keeps the material online
and accessable in the internet.
However, some uploaders have reported that links are copied,
stolen and posted directly on other sites.
This is NOT in the interest of the sharing community as it:

a) Increases the target surface of the links,
because many forums do not implement the proper protection mechanisms.

b) The antipiracy industry now uses web bots to crawl for links and to auto delete them.
Copying the links without reuploading them,
only leads to the original links getting taken down faster.

c) It leads to a downward spiral where uploads are taken down faster
and uploaders feel less motivated to post more original material.


Also if you are a leecher, reader or uploader and downloaded the source,
a very good way to thank the uploader is by collecting his previous uploads
and to regularly provide mirror links and to post it INSIDE THE UPLOAD THREAD.
A novel volume is only 200 KB or less,
you can easily upload all 10 volumes in less than a few minutes!

If every thread has 2-3 guys who collect all links and regularly post the mirrors,
then it will not only improve the availability
but also make it much easier for new readers to join the reading frenzy!
And spreading joy is what this is all about!  :elephantdancef:

That's all! Enjoy your stay!
