IMPORTANT TGA changes


Recommended Posts

If you haven't noticed TGA is in the middle of a HUGE change.

THE WAY DOWNLOADS ARE HANDLED HAS COMPLETELY CHANGED SO KEEP READING!!

I am going to try to explain this in the best way i can, but if you still have questions feel free to ask.

We have put all files that we have in our new downloads section. We have changed the way people can link to the files though, you can no longer post a link somewhere that says for instance...

http://www.thegamersalliance.com/videos/metus.wmv <- right click save target as

Thats not gonna work anymore, you will need to give them a link similar to this one....

http://www.thegamersalliance.com/php/mo ... itle=Metus

Then everyone will need to go to that link and click on "download this file now!" on that page. You get the last mentioned link by going to our download section ( http://www.thegamersalliance.com/php/mo ... =Downloads ), finding your file, click on "details" and then you link to that page.

By doing this, it will help our database be more meaningful, everyone who goes to that page can vote on the download, also they can leave comments.

The way this is going to work is if you upload a file through our uploader YOU need to go to our download section ( http://www.thegamersalliance.com/php/mo ... =Downloads ), and you need to click on "Add download" and fill out the form so we can add it to our database. We will try our very best to be timely in adding the submissions to our database.

We are going to try to make this process a little simpler but this is the best we can do right now, and in my opinion any idiot should be able to figure it out, and i don't think many of you guys are idiots so you should have no problem.

So everyone make sure you update your links because we will be making the as soon as i get done posting this. Thanks for everyones patience and understanding.

PS Images will still work off site, so you will still be able to post them just like always, no worries :)

Thing is TGA puts up a big effort to do everyone a service by hosting most community vids and files and even its site's reform aims towards that same purpose. There wouldn't be a point in any of that if no one actually visited the site itself though, would there?

At least that's what I'm getting from this...

well this suks, ill have to change all of the links on my site. will u be able to PM me or e-mail me the new links for the vids?

LOL it would be just as much work for me to do it as it would be for you to do it... We are in the middle of doing all these changes, we deffinetly don't have time to be managing anyone else's website at the moment. :wink:
