Here is the latest addition to maXimus Forum: Downloads!!!

This feature will allow you to easily share files with other members of the forum by uploading them directly to our servers. You can add images, a description and any other information necessary! If you don't have a file to upload, but are looking for something specific, you can browse the categories and hopefully will find what you are looking for and can download it!!

I will be slowly moving our current files to the Downloads page as time permits. If you need a specific category, please let me know by post or by PM and I will add it. Please keep in mind that if you upload any warez or anything that includes a serial, crack or keygen, you are violating forum rules, the file will be deleted and you will be given a warning.

Allowed file extensions: zip rar tar gz
Allowed image extensions: jpg jpeg jpg2 gif png gif

Getting started:

To access the feature, click on the Downloads button on the navbar.
http://www.maximus.ws/forum/files/maX/pictures/downloads/downloads1.gif

Here you will find the latest statistics: Latest Files,
Most Popular Files and Top Contributors.

Also you will find the Navigation information where you will see the categories and number of files in each category.

To add a file, click on the Add button.

Here you are given the opportunity to add a file name, the author (leave blank and it will automatically say "unknown"),
a description and category.

If you have files or program that you want to upload, please check Software Downloads (http://www.iphonemodding.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=64) first to see if it is already on the server before uploading. All the files and programs from the Software Downloads forum will be migrated over to this new feature, hopefully this weekend. Thanks! :cool:

Reminder:

If you are adding files such as skins or DRM's, please add a screenshot to the description when uploading. This will make it easier for persons to decide whether or not they want to download it! :cheers:
