Dumping Grounds 2008-10-26 20:09:18


Where are the dumping grounds? I was reading the FAQ again and got curious.

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.

Q: What kind of files can I store?
SInce it was designed mainly as a collaboration tool, the only file types allowed are .fla, .swf, .png, .gif, and .jpg. Whether you share these files with anyone else is up to you.

I have no idea. It could be an obsolete feature that wasn't edited out of the FAQ.

That would be the Alphas.
Although you can't upload FLAs, JPGs, GIFs or PNGs because at the time, it put a bit of a dent into NG with so many users.

I assumed this was a reference to Ng files.
