How about granting regular contributors write access to an "incoming" , "upload" or even personalized pure upload directory on the FTP instead?


It might be that such a setup already exists the problem is I guess knowing who is 'regular'

I agree posting things in public helps, my concern is that some of it is going to be lost before it get processed tho, so something does need to be done to help prevent that. There needs to be a clearer way of alerting people to 'this needs archiving'


Correct. MAMEDEV has an "ftpdropbox" account which people who have dumps can use to share with the development team as well as coordinate with current developers (Incoming and Outgoing). It isn't a free/open to all deal due to obvious issues of allowing anything be uploaded/downloaded by anyone. Once you are vetted/cleared to get the login details, it is always available to you whenever you may have something that is to be used by a submitted driver or even stuff that might be used later. In any case, just contact me for details if you are a data contributor who wishes to see his/her data stored. If it is small amount of data, you can always email it to our Submission Email (provided it is under about 4MB).

Anxiously waiting for the outcome of this application ... hope it's not Mr. Chinnery who does the vetting ... wink

Here's an image of that edited Floppy disk.
