The Great File Cleanup 2018

Recommended Posts

Evening all!

I'm sure we've all come across a file that we really wanted to download, but found that we end up with a page that simply says "File Not Found". It's annoying. We feel your pain.

You can help us to clean up these files!

When you come across a file that doesn't actually have any files attached to it, you can click on the grey "Report this file" link near the bottom of the file page area. This will give you something that looks like this:

When you select the Missing File option, your report will be placed into a special category. If moderators don't happen to have the original file on hand (which we tend to keep when approving files to make sure they work) they will send the original author a PM asking for a re-upload. If the author doesn't respond within 7 days, the file and support topic (if it has one) will be hidden.

There are currently 2,760 file records in our database, and i'm almost willing to put money on the fact that ~15% of those files are ghost records (file records in our database without actual files saved on disk).

Members who are particularly diligent will be awarded the Helper badge and will be displayed next to all of your posts and on your forum profile.

It's like bug-hunting.. but for things that aren't there..

Happy reporting!

Akky out~
