How to upload a fanfic if the size is too big?
« on: December 21, 2013, 09:06 AM »
There is a request for a fanfic that I have (on the More than 152 Twilight Fanfics - Round 3 thread), dutfano79 Figure Eight.  I have it in PDF and Mobi but both are larger than the 18000KB (they are 2.95 and 1.45 MB). So I was wondering how I can compress them? so I can upload them for the requester? Or is that even possible?  I've never uploaded before here. So maybe I'm doing it wrong? I tried to look around to see if there was a tutorial or advice about uploading here but didn't notice any.  Help?

Hello.
180000KB means over 17 MB.
So you are good to go.
If you have file larger that you break them in small sizes using winrar.

Hmm I'm wondering why the files aren't showing up then. When I hit the button here saying add attachment, look for the file in the folder I know it to be... it is empty. But If I look at the folder on my computer all is good. It just isn't showing up when I try to add the attachment. It just says "No items match your search".  But, I know that I have PDF, Mobi and ePub files in there. I checked before I came here to upload it.

Maybe the browser.
You can try write the file name when you go in the folder.

I hadn't thought about the browser being an issue. I'm using Firefox. I'll try it on Google and IE. 

Firefox: I can find PDFs but not mobi or epubs.
Google: I can find all three, PDF, Mobi & ePub
IE:

No, I didn't upload it because someone mentioned on "More than 152 Twilight Fanfics - Round 3 thread" that it was available on TWCS so I wasn't sure if it was allowed to upload it.  Should I?

No.  If in doubt, check the opening post on the 152 thread, it sets out the guidelines for uploading.  If still in doubt, please feel free to PM me so I can help.  We appreciate everyone who participates, but would hate for anyone to get their feelings hurt because we try to get everyone to follow the guidelines in order to use the PTS server space wisely.

Again, your participation is appreciated.
