Today, I found out that www.denvish.net/ul ...is Closed
I wanted to upload something on to it, but I instead got greeted by a message giving an explanation to why its closed, go to the site and see for yourself
Denvish.net was made by an NG User , Named Denvish ( denvish.newgrounds.com ) he made it to help NG Users showcase there W.I.P without using crappy Imageshack
Thanks Denvish
and PLEASE BRING THE SITE BACK!!!


AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!

He's actually got a very legitimate reason for doing it.

Response to Denvish.net is Closed...Forever! !! 2007-08-13 16:41:17


Well.. it was a great uploader. Thanks Denvish for giving us the priveledge of using it.

Now, does anyone know a good and free file uploader?

Response to Denvish.net is Closed...Forever! !! 2007-08-13 16:46:35


Yeah. I really am sorry for having to close the site, but as I said in the blurb on the site, there are two very good reasons...

firstly, it's just got too popular as an uploader, and my hosting package can't handle it - I never thought the 20 GB webspace would be all used up, the bandwidth is fine, but I can't afford to lose the game site or Casualty's NG Log because there's no space left

and secondly, I have no control over the uploaded content, and that's something that's been worrying me for quite some time. Anyone could upload a pornographic jpeg, and if it was found by the company who provide the webspace, they'd close the domain (and the three others I have with them) for breach of T&C. I already had to disable txt uploads because someone basically uploaded a hacking script that was being run from various locations to attack peoples' PCs, and there was never any way I could check for an .exe file renamed to .fla - which could potentially be appz or other illegal software, which would also result in me losing the sites I have with the company, and possibly legal action.

It's had a good run, well over a year, but I've come to the conclusion that it's time to call it a day

Thank you very much for the upload Denvish, it's been very useful for me to upload my swfs. :) Eventually people might understand that they can host their stuff on their own sites for best quality uploads.

I do have a suggestion for Denvish (assuming that you doesn't want the ul to die)
Work with Tom so that you can only allow NG users to upload there. It's a long shot, but I assume that you and Tom probably talk to each other sometimes. Anyway, if he's on really good trusting terms with you, then maybe he'd allow you to force people to use their NG login to upload. Idk, just an idea.
Sucks that it's gone though.

I honestly don't want the ul to die, but firstly Tom is way too busy to be getting involved in stuff like that, and secondly, even if users were forced to log in, there's nothing to stop them uploading porn images or exes renamed to flas. I'd need some kind of file mod team just to check each entry as it was uploaded, and I just don't have time to organise anything like that.

I'm genuinely sorry to have to close the uploader, I love being able to provide a service like that, particularly for collabers, but I really have no choice - I'm bound by the T&C on that hosting package, and I've risked it for too long already.

well i dont see it reason to apoligize.. i mean it was a free service, it was great while it was around and you the user shoulda enjoyed it while you had it, now you dont, time to buy a server or find a new ul ... not the end of the world. i dont think you should break your back to try and find a solution or risk ruining your real work. Thanks 'so long and thanks for all the fish!'

It was wonderful while it lasted and has helped a lot of people. Even though I don't think I ever uploaded to denvish.net/ul it was a great service for people who didn't have their own webspace and didn't want the hassle of using the other options and it was especially useful for collabs. So I think a big thank you to Denvish for doing this for all of us, even with the risks it posed, is in order.

So; thank you Denvish, I'm sure everyone has a lot of gratitude for what you were able to do for us. =]

Sucks that it had to be closed, but I have to agree that it was way too risky, especially for how long it lasted.

Taking a wild guess, that could be a yes and no answer.

Still have the major problem of checking for T&C-breaking files. The company I host with, iX hosting, do have an 'Unlimited' plan... with, you guessed it, unlimited diskspace - which I would consider purchasing if I could find some way to mod the uploaded files. RupeeClock has put forward some thoughts in my news post. Problem is, I'm really busy right now so I don't have a lot of time to investigate code to automate modding of uploaded files.

I'm not quite mad that he shut down the Uploader. It was getting a bit out of hand, maybe people were uploading many things that probably shouldn't of been on there. In the beginning, it WAS for Newgrounds Users like you and I. In the end, it turned into something much more. Atleast, it helped for the time being.

Thanks Denvish. Now it's time to use up our webspace. :)

No need to apologize, Denvish! If the thing was getting out of hand, by all means close it. It served the NG community (the Flash forum, anyway) well while it lasted, and most of the collabs here would have sunk a little without the use of such a free service.. I bet almost everyone (at least me) will miss it.

As sappy as this already is, I'd like to say thanks for creating such a wonderful service, Denvish. :)

It was the best uploader EVER. So easy to use and quick. It's a real shame to see it go but you're right to do it. Thanks for having it for so long!
