    Message for uploaders (Mirror Linking, Title Format, File Format etc)

    This is just a message for uploaders about the new plan to keep the forums a bit cleaner. As of late, there has been a lot of mirror threads being posted that really clutter up a section, so as a way to combat this, here's a few new guidelines to follow when creating a thread and for the posting of new links.


    1. Title Format

    The soundtrack name is a given, but if possible and when the soundtrack name isn't too long to add any info, it would be best to add which format the soundtrack is in, such as FLAC, MP3, OGG, M4A or whatever, also the bit rate if it's MP3, like 320, 256, 224, 192, vbr etc. The composer name would also be a plus to be included, but it's not a priority if there's not enough room. When there's not enough room for additional information, please add it to the thread itself, it really does help others that have a preference when it comes to bit rates/format. This will also help mods to merge threads if any do happen to slip through.

    Here's an example: Sélect Hotel - Jérôme Coullet (1996) [FLAC + 320]


    2. Mirror Linking

    We're not really out to stop this, just for people posting mirror links to do it in an already existing thread. This only really applies to newer releases that get posted within a week or two of each other. Not really going to set a time limit on it, if you're reposting something you know someone else already posted, then post it in their thread and just give credit or whatever. The bit rates need to be the same too, if there's a different bit rate, then a new thread would be ok.

    Also, while the posting of mirror links is ok in already created threads for the soundtrack in question, there's just one rule that we ask you follow when doing so. If the op used a megaupload link, please don't post another megaupload link in that thread, unless the link is dead, then it would be ok. Same applies for other links posted after, we don't need mirrors of mirrors of mirrors :P



    These new guidelines are not to discourage people from posting links, it's just a way to keep the forums a bit cleaner and to respect original posters of the music. If you see people posting dupe threads, just give them a friendly reminder, no need to chew them out about it, it'll take a while for people to get used to this.

    Thank you <^o^>

    Do to changes in my schedule, I am not able to do uploads, renew links or fulfill requests at this time. I will resume uploads if and when the situation changes.

    I could not agree with this more. I constantly find myself asking people for the bitrate, tracklist and length as well as composer

    Or mine.
    I don't put the year in though. Unless it's a re-release or something like that.
    I usually put in the host (I only use multiupload so Multi is simple enough to fit in).

    agreed!

    all this things to make this place a more user friendly community yet still you got more folks acting newbies or ignorant with even the simplest rules.

    all that is needed is a few seconds to browse and read, and adapt.

    I completely agree.

    However, in the past some members suggested through a poll to create a lossless subforum, too (to keep the things more cleaner) and I approved that idea.

    Anyway please note, if someone is releasing HQ lossless music, then this should be an instant read:

    The guide is very easy to follow, configuration takes 30 minutes of your time (must be done only once), and satisfaction is guaranteed!

    Moreover, me and other members are always available for assistance, if needed .

    Very strangely, the guide Vegeta posted is not stickied, and I think it would be a very good idea to make it sticky in the "Film, Television and Classical Music Download Links" section.
    Are you looking for very high quality soundtracks? Here are the essential things you have to know:
