We're all about being a friendly forum, and in order to make it more efficient to replace a release whose OP is absent, no longer replacing dead links, or an ARC (Advanced Reader's Copy) we have decided to modify our rules to make things easier, and faster for you.

All you have to do now, is post the new release, and reply to the old one "New Release here: (link)" or "Retail Release here: (link)"

There's no longer a need for you to contact a Moderator to ask for the release to be removed, having to wait for the Mod to do so, and risk someone else beating you to posting the file while you weren't looking. Now, it's all in your hands.

Do make sure that the OP is actually inactive (meaning the OP is still around, but has added a signature that he/she is no longer replacing dead links) or that he/she's absent, and the release abandoned (4+ weeks without logging on). To check whether the OP is absent, click on "Profile" on the lower left of the posts to find out, you should see the last log on date. It's very important that you do that, otherwise, it's a double post.

Good luck, happy reading, and happier, easier posting.

Reposting releases (bad quality files, ARC files, absent posters)
  • Bad quality files/Obsolete formats: Contact a moderator if you can offer a better quality file than the one already posted. Posters of lesser quality files will have the right to replace with better versions within 24 hours from notice before the post is removed to make way for a new release.
  • ARC files: Releases with ARC files can be reposted without previous notice, simply post a new release and a reply in the old thread with the announcement: "reposted here with retail (link)".
  • Absent/Inactive posters: Releases by absent/inactive posters can be reposted without previous notice, simply post a new release and a reply in the old thread with the announcement: "reposted here (link)".
      Important:
    • Make sure the Original Poster is no longer active before reposting a release. If there is no signature indicating that the OP is not replacing links, check the 'last visited' info in the user's profile: posters are considered absent after 4 weeks since the last login. If in doubt, contact a moderator.
    • Make sure all the links are dead before reposting.


ATTENTION!
Responsible reposting, please!
Do not go hunting dead links and then spam the New Releases board with a massive number of "new" old releases, thank you!

Make sure the links are all dead before reposting, we do not need a new release if links in the old post work, unless the OP is banned or the filehost is banned.

Thank you. Edits made.

I've read how to post mirror in case of links are dead. That rules are so confusing(from here : viewtopic.php?f=1147&t=721876).

This here so much clearer.(All you have to do now, is post the new release, and reply to the old one "New Release here: (link)" or "Retail Release here: (link)" )

Well I've come accross a new problem. Bear with me a second and I will explain.

On more than one occasion the book I have tried to load the host site holding the book
has been blocked by my state's inter net server. This has happened several times.

Most book uploads in those cases can we get a re upload to zippyshare as zippy share isn't blocked?

Also Usercloud is fine.

Most other sites are blocked.

100 percent of the time this has been the case. All books I've tried.

This is a very specific problem for which we cannot implement a general rule. The problem varies depending on location, so it must be dealt with on an individual basis, sorry about that. The hosts you mention as "fine" are actually blocked somewhere else, I hope you understand and find a different solution, like a VPN.

VPN is pretty much invaluable, it also stops you getting tracked for downloading. I use IPVanish because they don't store your history. It's about the only way you can get around server blocks and work firewalls.
