This Public Service Announcement has been brought to you by the good folks of G U Network


Good evening, ladies and gentleman
Big Hello Smiley

In order to avoid unpleasantness concerning adf.ly and its revenue generated from forumotion, we are effective immediately implementing new regulation

ALL LINKS to Mediafire, Zippyshare, Megaupload or MEGA file hosts must be enclosed in code brackets
Example:

Code:
[code]http://www.mediafire....[/code]


The purpose for this is that the links must not be clickable.
If they are clickable, a hardcoded script introduces a adf.ly sublink that redirects you to an advertising site on which they make money.

Our mods are free.
Some of our modders were upset about the fact that adf.ly makes money from their mods, so this is the quickest simplest way to counter it.

Once the links are within those codes, they will be available to be copied and pasted into the address bar, without the adf.ly redirection.

With this intent, the GUNet staff have already edited all the existing mediafire and mega links into Code boxes.

Alternatively, if you want to avoid this hassle,
make a Dropbox account and host your files on Dropbox
It doesn't generate the adf.ly redirection, and it's just as useful as MediaFire or Mega

Thank you all for your dedication and understanding.
Thank Donta for bringing the issue to our attention.
Thank BoomBewm and roflcopter117 for helping me edit all (or almost all) of the existing links with the Code boxes.

Best regards to all of you  Beer
