That other guy doesn't know what he's on about.

Dumping Grounds.

It's a collaboration tool for artists to upload some of their things to share with others. Here's something from the FAQ.

Q: What is File Storage?

A: File Storage, also called "Dumping Grounds," is mainly for users to share works-in-progress with their friends and collaborators. Upon upload, each file is given a random URL and linked only to the uploader's list of stored files. The only other people who have access to them are those who are given the URL for a particular file.

File Storage is not an image gallery. It was not designed for the purpose of showcasing art or photos, but so that users who are working on a project together can post their work for each other to view and download. Privacy is the main function of this feature.

It's here. You can access it through going to your account page and clicking on 'Free File Upload' under 'Dumping Grounds' on the left side. Keep in mind that you're restricted to uploading anything but Flash source files, exported Flashes and a few image formats. If you want to upload other filetypes, then I'd suggest uploading them on another site.

This is a related question / test, and it wasn't really worth making a new thread over, so:

Can you link to stuff in your own / someone else's dump and have it be visible to everyone here? For example, could everyone who clicks it follow this link, or are there restrictions on it?
(^^ It's just a screenshot of a dumb BBS thread, don't worry.)

Short answer - yes.
