I have set up a file sharing account on a file sharing website for the members of this site. The purpose is to give a means for us to be able to share files (legal files only, please) with each other. For obvious reasons, I can not post the username and password here, but if you want access, you can PM me.

What is the major purpose?
It is odd when one's capacity for compassion is measured not in what he is willing to do by his own time, effort, and property, but what he will force others to do with their own property instead.

Nothing in particular. It'll find a use for itself. I've wanted one on different occasions.

I really don't see a major use for this. Anything people need to send can be done with the regular file sharing websites, where anyone that actually will bother to put something up on a DDO website, probably already has an account.

I dislike the idea.

There is no guarantee that your site will stay up, and with much more stable alternatives such as ImageShack, PhotoBucket, and TinyPic, I just don't see the benefit.

Those only work for pictures.

For example?

During the mafia game, I had created an HTML file edit of my role message. It looked just like a real message, and I wanted to show it to L-M.

Or, if you must, use PasteBin: http://pastebin.com...

What's great is that you can also make a file temporary.

A little extra work. This is meant as a convenience and a means to keep more secure files off of the WWW.

We'd be able to share files with only the members of this site.

That's cute, and hilarious. I can go through people's files. It's funny, actually. Check this out:

I like this idea, if it doesn't involve the garbage that's on something like RapidShare or downloading programs or making accounts.
