I am sorry to say that all non-image file extensions will be removed from the 'accepted extensions' list this evening.
You may be aware that all files that are uploaded to GoPut.IT are screened to make sure that they don't break the rules that we've set. It is becoming too much of a burden to check the miscellaneous files.
Initially, it was expected that these sorts of files were ancillary to the normal operation of the then 'i-dot' image uploader. Since then, however, these miscellaneous files have been uploaded in their masses.
Staff who do checks on the non-image files often remove the content from the site because it breaks our rules, or is extremely borderline/questionable.
- Some users do not upload these files as often. If you are one of these users, and still want to be able to upload non-image files which were accepted, then please tweet @GoPutIT on Twitter about it (or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org) and I'll consider allowing you to continue doing so. This does not mean that by getting in touch you will automatically be given this 'status'.
Any non-image files that were uploaded before the non-image extensions were removed from the 'accepted extensions' list won't automatically be removed because of this. After being checked, however, they may be removed if they break our rules.
Note- You can use GoPaste.IT
to create 'pastes'.
