One never knows, only the administrators. Just wait for their input.

It is literally defined in the forum guidelines: 

 

Quote

Members are reminded to respect copyrights. As such, any links or posts containing illegal content are not permitted. This includes and is not limited to cracks, keygens, serials and "licensed" software materials. Members can share such items via the "Sharecode"system. Requests for illegal materials are not permitted. Any content copied from elsewhere should include a source link.

The links are not allowed due to copyright concerns and probably something else as well. Separating the links into parts is allowed, as every individual user has to go through steps to form a usable link.

Yes, merely encapsulating the link/s within code tag/s violates the forum rules.

It isn't ShareCoded (regardless of the code tag) as follows:—


Site: https://www.upload.ee/
ShareCode: files/8319015/URET.rar.html

THE SHARCODE requirements is stated in http://www.nsaneforums.com/guidelines/

 

The reason why we break up url inks is so Google and other spiders cannot harvest urls or url like-text that can be used to incriminate a site...

Just look at the takedown documents at The DMCA Takedown Database ChillingEffects.org

Many blogs that offer such links are usually taken down because it takes a SPIDER TO HARVEST OR SCRAP LINKS and easily verify the contents ...

Eat make it harder for people to LEECH stuff to other people's sites:

Unless your purpose is to sabotage this site.. Just stick to this simple request or DON'T POST AT ALL

Yes. As @Alanon points out, the rules are specific about using the "sharecode" system pertaining to copyrighted material.

But I find this rule strange considering that posting illegal stuff is not permitted on one hand, and yet is permitted on the other by using that "system".

Anyways, I know you from the AppzNet board days and I take for granted that you should be aware of the futility of contesting rules. Staff also have the prerogative to interpret them to their own liking.

A good example of this is the mini moderating rule. It's not permitted, yet overlooked and even thanked by the Staff.

Stick by the rules my friend. This place is not worth the grief.

@lurch234 I always presumed that the sharecode system is in place so that the forum itself could not be so easily accused of hosting links. This way, the site doesn't actually host any links, and it's the users' responsibility to intentionally perform 2-3 actions that would eventually lead them to a link.

@Alanon  I am not debating this forums views on how to post links :)  Other forums like Warezbb use code boxes while others like israbox or ReleaseBB posts them as hyperlinks...

But israbox hosts their files on IsraCloud, and people can't download stuff unless they pay for  a premium cloud account

Similarly  some idiots ar WZ-BB have put singular  GIGABYTE+ sized links, needing PREMIUM ACCOUNTS just to access them..

@lurch234 Don't get me wrong, I'm not debating the policy either. I've simply wondered about the specific rationale behind it myself, and that theory is as far as I've gotten. One thing to consider is that copyright policies and especially their enforcement vary greatly depending on where the ISP is located and where the domain is registered.

Really? And this changes what? The debate is about visibility of posts containing illegal materials. Not from where they are hosted. DMCA notices targets the places where this material is posted and not the file hosting companies themselves.

In many cases, direct links can be taken down .. Sometimes they don't even last for an hour..

With many OCHs it is easy to tag/flag stuff so it is so easy to take it down with a DCMA takedown flag..

If you do not share code the link then there would be a direct link between nsane and for example, upload.ee. All “hits” on upload.ee  manifesting from this direct link would  have nsane as the source.  The latter would potentially give rise copyright violations, illegality and the like.

Yes :lol: Fortunately they have a rule about this. They can post such links only if they provide free alternatives ;)

 

But in all respect and fairness we are digressing from the main subject of this post.

A very weird question.
Link is a link and text is text. If you post something, no matter what, then this is not a link. But you can also add a link to anything, of course, if there's a link on this thing.
Try to figure out which is the link and which is not a link.
The link tekst is not link. So, even if very - very want to post link into Code box, then it isn't link, but link text.

Not sure this can be considered a poll, Even so the outcome would be quite one sided. The rules regarding the use of share-codes are clear and the above comments should answer your question.

Ok, I'll delete this post about in an hour. However, it would be interesting to see some reactions. Of course, I personally still believe that the owner of the forum says how should be and how will remain.

This is what I understand from what @shought writes.

 

For Normal/Installer downloads you can use direct links.

eg:

 

Installer (19.91 MB): http://static.auslogics.com/en/boost-speed/10/boost-speed-setup.exe
 

For Fixes/Keygens/Patches/Cracks/Medicines PLEASE use Sharecode.

eg:

 

Crack (25 KB):

Site: https://www.upload.ee
Sharecode[?]: /files/8451688/ATPP.v1.3.zip.html
 
@Astron has been doing this in ALL his posts.
 
ps: The above example was extracted from his post. :D
http://www.nsaneforums.com/topic/313412-auslogics-boostspeed-premium-100100/
Since Portable versions can be considered as Fixes it should also be Sharecoded.
(Correct me if I'm wrong) :ph34r:

There will be cases where the  Normal/Installer  direct links. don''t work  because the developer has forbidden hotlinking or link highjacking on his site

it would be best so show the link actual download page.

We have a relatively new member and wants to change the way things are posted here.. Most likely a non-conformist..

 

He/She can sling name dropping like you are a VIP or an ADMIN on that forum.... But that doesn't mean you get preferential treatment here.
