Uploading public domain books
« on: November 06, 2012, 11:06 AM »
I have some public domain books (their copyright has expired) that I'd like to share with everyone at PTS.  Can I upload them here, rather than TUEBL, please?

I was reading about TUEBL (how we're two different houses and they're using our garage to store their stuff, etc.) 
Can we 'store' our stuff in our garage. also?

I uploaded a book, once, (after STP became PTS) and TUEBL moved it to their database.  I didn't mind but if TUEBL 'moves away' and they have our books, will they take the books (files) with them or leave them in our 'garage'?

Ok we are going to say yes with conditions lol.

With each upload please provide a link to the book at Project Gutenberg  You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login.

I'm a bit confused.  We don't move books to the Tuebl database.  Other's can upload copies of books to the database but PTS does not.  Nor does Tuebl.  Individuals must upload.  Someone else might  have had the copy and uploaded it to Tuebl in answer to a request or because they wanted to do so.

Requests will be moved because they are to be posted on the Tuebl Request forum.  No books are allowed to be uploaded to the Tuebl Forums.   The links to books on that forum are just that links.  They can vanish if the book is removed from the site it is uploaded on.  The books are NOT uploaded to that forum.  Any link will take you off site to get the book either to Tuebl or an download site.

Currently those boards are in hiatus because of the server problem on this site.  They will return when the problem is fixed.
