    Dropbox will upload slowly over time for you in pieces -- anytime your computer is online with or without your input. Dump the files from your friend into a dropbox folder and your work is done at that point; when it completes it's Sync give the folder share link to staff via a support ticket or ask a friend to zip that folder into one uploadable file for you and post it on GB.

    Well, that's not the only and main issue, Logan, as I said before.
    For the last time, please read down my complete message and have some complete reply and discussion on this matter, don't just consider one thing which doesn't clarify everything.

    This is my last reply on this matter, otherwise I don't really care if you even gag me permanently from the Prefabs section. In other words, not letting me have my rights on the site as a member.

    That being said, you can't make right, a wrong.

    For the sake of justification, have some discussion with Mini about this matter, he should be able to explain things better. Please.

    I've already said what to do. Upload to dropbox or some other slow service that you can use over a length of time and then ask anyone - even staff - to zip them together and upload as a single submission for you. We can combine that with your existing submissions.  If none of the staff want to upload it I can automate it on my end easily enough.
    But, won't this be the same as I'm doing right now? Both procedures will take the same amount of time and effort for me (i.e., uploading, plus minor extra work).

    But, won't this be the same as I'm doing right now? Both procedures will take the same amount of time and effort for me (i.e., uploading, plus minor extra work).

    You'll just need to create mosaic screenshots similar to the link I posted and itemize the model names to go in the authors readme/notes section. If you can't make screenshots then it can uploaded without and make a thread asking for someone to put it together for you.
    Here, it's requiring additional time and effort which is not affordable by me at the moment. The way I'm doing right now seems just fine and proper, short and simple method.
    Credits to Valve for HL2/CSS/L4D would be required as those are what you've been uploading.
    Once again, like I said before, you wasn't aware of the actual fact.

    Here, I have mixed models available, they all were given to me by someone.
    What I'm doing now is, redistributing them simply as anyone would do.

    To explain further and clear some negative claims people have against me, all the models are definitely not Valve's property.
    Yes, I agree that majority of them found to be are, but not all.

    The person who sent me these models didn't tell me about their author(s) or anything, he just sent me these.

    Therefore, I'm simply doing all the work on my end (taking screenshots, providing proper credits, descriptions, installation instructions, etc.) as according to the site rules.

    And when it comes to crediting, why should I simply credit Valve when I told you that I don't know their author(s)? I don't know what you're expecting from me, but honestly, I can't accept this that all the models I have are definitely Valve's property.

    Try to understand in a positive way, Logan, please. I have nothing against you or the site, I'm not hurting the site or anyone, rather supporting the site in a way.

    If the individual models is an issue for you, as I said before, I have discussed about this with Mini, he didn't disallow me from this.
    You may discuss with him about this if you want.

    Plus, I'm packing similar models in a single package already. Examples are here and here.

    The only thing which disappointed me is the sudden gag.
    Even if I was deserving a gag, you should have warned me at least once, but you didn't warn.

    As for profile messages and submission posts, I was very well aware of them, but as I said before, i didn't feel the need to reply them, I was updating the credits when I was getting known of the authors.

    Thank you, hope you understand my situation.

    You can't ignore me like this, Logan. This is not the first time you're ignoring though. you have done this many times.

    It shows that you simply can't handle issues/discussions properly.

    If you have took a case in your hand in a such way, then please completely resolve this as well. Do not just ignore, I'm not here all the time, I have other things in real life to take care of as well, please.

    I'm clean myself, based on both, generally as well as according to the site rules.

    Kindly, ungag me. Also, please remove that negative modlog from my account, i.e., the gag one.

    Thank you.

    Several support tickets, posts in your profiles, and posts in your submissions. You should listen to the community. You've ignored most and left credits blank so a gag gets attention. Please package your content and fix the credits, everything you've uploaded are HL2/CSS/L4D ports.

    I didn't ignore anyone, it's just that I didn't feel the need to reply to anyone.

    Also, I didn't leave the credits just blank, I put "unknown" in all those models for which I don't know the authors of, as for the ones which were known then, I updated the credits for them.

    And all the credits are already fixed (i.e., unknown for the ones which I don't know the author(s) of). What else should I do to fix them further?

    Just to clear your point; I'm simply not a person who doesn't care about the credits. In fact, I have a great importance of credits when it comes to them, and that's why I put "unknown" there.

    You don't even know the actual fact, you didn't even discuss with me about this issue, and suddenly gagged me.
    This is not fair, honestly.

    You listened to the community, but you didn't even feel the need to discuss with me, at least for once, who's the main part of this matter. Is this called a true or fair moderation?

    At least, I didn't violate any rule, either.

    If you are interested enough to let me give my clarification on this matter, then please let me know, as I'm still not agreeing with the single package upload idea.

    You simply don't know the actual thing about this matter.
    Also, I had the permission from another admin about this, but I didn't know that you would take an action against me like this.

    If you can't upload at once, upload to dropbox or some other slow sync service and ask anyone -- even staff -- to upload the archive for you.
