Warning to all !!!

 

I got a lot of viruswarnings from the downloadslinks from the skin pages.

All mediafire downloads get a positive virus warning.

Dont click or start microsoftstoers.com fake warnings !!!! It is not from Microsoft !!!

I think this will install randsomeware software.

 

You get this popup with fake warnings, during downloading the file from mediafire.com

 

AVAST warning mediafire website is infected with URL:Mal.

 

PS: Google this words for more information:      mediafire site virus warnings

 

Best regards Grippen7

With Mediafire, always right-click the download button and Save As.  You won't be troubled with ads or fake warnings.

I cannot even get to the website any more.  It was fine on Monday but when I tried to use it on Tuesday I got the 'Too many redirections' error.  The advice I was given was that clearing cookies should solve it but if it keeps happening on different browsers then it is probably a site problem.  I have tried four different browsers and cleared acache & cookies on all four without success :-(

Is there any reasons for skinners to not use Google/One/Yandex Drive? You can simply drop individual skins on a public folder, then users can choose if they want to download one of them or all your skins in one go. No popouts, no paywall and much more convenient as well in my opinion.

Sounds like normal mediafire. It's been quite awful for the last 3 years or so. They were good initially, but I guess it wasn't financially sustainable for them.

 

I completely echo Lucas From Hell: Use Google Drive, Onedrive, Dropbox, etc. to share your skins. Far, far, faaaaaar better services, and can give you moooore than enough space for hosting your skins for free.
