    Default Gamefront bans half of the world

    http://www.gamefront.com/file-hosting-faq/ (scroll down a bit)

    Important news for modders and mod users, and I don't think anyone's created a topic about this yet.

    Basically as of several days ago you can't download from Gamefront if you live in one of the following:

    Argentina
    Mexico
    Chile
    Spain
    Thailand
    Poland
    Colombia
    Brazil
    France
    Venezuela
    Italy
    Peru
    Uruguay
    Malaysia

    Ouch, this is very unfortunate since Gamefront is one of the best hosts out there. Well at least they were up until this very recent change.

    Supposedly because Gamefront had trouble selling ads there and was faced with heavy traffic at the same time. So basically they pulled out for financial reasons.

    Not only that but it's not as secure now that they delete things after 60 days without a download.

    As usual, it feels good to be Dutch.

Their task never has been, and never will be easy, because the two contrary elements, of which our existence and the nature of society is composed, demand the employment of different means. In view of our divine essence, we need only liberty and work; in view of our mortal nature, we need for our direction a guide and a support. A government is not then, as a distinguished economist has said, a necessary ulcer; it is rather the beneficent motive power of all social organisation.

    Which isn't exactly new. They follow their 60 day policy since July and had a 90 days policy before that for a while iirc.
