Mediafire crackdown!  

I know folks sometimes put off downloading videos etc, until they are ready but if you want anything from my journal, then I suggest you download them now/asap.

Mediafire has already started deleting some my files and I've already gotten  2 strikes between yesterday and today. Maybe by the time I wake up tomorrow, my account will be terminated.

it most likely has to do with the name you gave it. When it's ambiguous, MF will not detect it.

Ex: Boys On The Run should look like BOTR and MF will not touch it; at least that's how I cleared my stuff when it was sending me copyright stuff for my animated gifs. The Lock On one actually ...

yeah I have started renaming the files but it's over a year's worth of file storage... and I can't rename them so quickly...

*sighs* I don't know

Sad news I don't have an account but I read somewhere else the same thing :(
I just hope that mediafire won't close anytime soon

Good luck

That' really bad O.o Darn it stinking overprotective blahness! I mean, I see where they're coming from...but sometimes there's no other way we can get the stuff Q.Q

Do you think they'd take off my softsubs if they're named the title of a show? I mean...they aren't even video files-.-' But still...

Hang in there! Hope your account doesn't get deleted Q.Q

oh no, this is bad
i knew they'd been deleting US TV series / movies files, but i thought they wont lay a hand at dorama
we need to work quickly before they delete all of it :(

and i agree with flipangel_88 you should make a new acc and rename the files with random names

I was worried about this myself when i started putting up files, which is why they're all put in zip files. It helps hide the filetype, and I can put the correctly named file in the zip file, then change the name once it's been zipped (without the original file's name being changed), and given names that only slightly hint at what they actually are. Plus, they're password protected to boot. So far I've been able to dodge the bullet.

I know it's gotta suck though, given how many things you have. Try and preserve what you can, at least. Worst case scenario, you might have to start a second account. Either way, thanks for the warning.

ano~ Daf-san..
can we just rename the file?
is it ok to just rename the file in old account?
and is it ok if we take the file which was rename before in folder with original name?
Hikari Kiramekudaftdragon on July 14th, 2012 12:12 am (UTC)
You can do that too, just rename the files. The key is to make it hard for people who just accidentally run across the file to figure out what it is, in case they decide to flag it, but still somewhat identifiable for people who should know what it is. The method I described is good for files that haven't been uploaded yet, renaming is better for older uploaded files.

:( That sucks! Stupid mediafire T_T I have seen other people saying the same thing too :( I hope you manage to keep your account *hugs*
Seelenlichtseelenlicht on July 12th, 2012 06:28 am (UTC)
I was afraid that even more people would have the same problems
(there are already 4 or 5 people who said the same thing....)
Especially crovoxisikes...I was downloading her whole stuff like crazy yesterday cause her account also can be shut down...

If it's only a problem with renaming your files, I could help you.
(I mean you know me good enough to know that I won't do anything with your account there...)

I really don't know why mediafire started to be such a bitch this month...
Let's hope it will calm down :-/
