    This short tutorial will explain how to upload an album on ANARCHO-PUNK.NET. We are assuming that you already have the album ripped on your hard drive, in a compressed format like MP3, OGG or WMA. If this is not the case, you can ask for help on the forums and the members will assist you in ripping an album on your PC.


    Uploading the file
    1. Select the MP3 files on your computer, and compress them into a .ZIP file. This will make the task easier for everyone.

    2. Find a file hosting service to upload your files. MEDIAFIRE.COM is recommended - you can register an account for free. Or you can also use EXOSHARE.COM which will upload your file on different file hosting services to ensure the link doesn't get deleted.

    3. Upload the .ZIP file you compressed earlier on Mediafire.com or Exoshare.com

    4. When the upload is completed, will give you a link to access the file. Note down the URL given to you.


    Posting the file on the forum

    1. Now that you have uploaded your file following the previous steps, start a new topic in the corresponding download forum to share the download

      Click here to post a new download in "Anarcho-Punk music albums downloads"

      or if you are sharing a band from a specific language, use the following category:

      International anarcho-punk downloads

      .

    2. Thread title - please always use the following syntax
      Code:
      Band name - album name (year)
      It's very important to respect the syntax and always separate band and album name between a hyphen (‐) character.

      Thread title example:
      OI POLLOI - TOTAL ANARCHOI (1996)

      .

    3. Download link - paste your Mediafire link in the post content and use the following syntax:
      Code:
      [DL]http://www.yourdownloadlink.com[/DL]
      Always put your link between [DL] tags.

      .
    4. If possible, include the following information after the download link:
      - Tracks list of the album
      - Cover image of the album and other artworks. You can find it easily using Google Images.



    Notes

    • Read the Charter of ANARCHO-PUNK.NET and the General disallowed band list before uploading an album.

    • If you need assistance, don't hesitate to request help on the forum.

    • BITRATE: Ideally, also add the bitrate of the audio files either in the topic title or inside the post. You can see this information in some media players (e.g. foobar, Winamp) or you can use Music NFO Builder to find it.

    • Why is it important to respect the syntax ? Because this is how our system identify the band name and album to find the corresponding information. Using [DL] tags also makes it easier to find downloads links. [DL] brackets makes your link looks like this:
