This topic is not about forum attachments, but anyway - the limit on the forum attachments is actually so low to discourage people from abusing the forum as a file hosting service. Attachments may be used as a last resort for posting e.g. screenshots or crash dumps when asking a question or reporting a bug.
We don't currently have a module hosting service and it will probably not come back (for legal and other reasons), but there are plenty of good alternatives out there these days.

But it could be fine if the limit was raised to 512kb for attachments.

Even if the limit was 100kb, it coudn't stop me from posting some of my new crafted tracks and remakes :D. Eventhoe i don't really mind the current attachment size limit.

There is no need for the original intent of the attachments to increase the size limit.

To be quite honest (and after posting exactly this in his thread), after listening to his tunes, they are exactly the kind of material that ModArchive quality control rejects to protect newbies from themselves - remember that ModArchive is a permanent archive and we won't remove tunes from there because you don't like them anymore - and "first try" stuff is exactly the kind of music you will generally be embarassed of five years later.

Good point. :)

Most modules in IT at about 1 minute are at about 1 megabyte!
Actually, it depends on the among of data (samples/intruments, pattern commands/lengh) used in the module.
Most modules (even IT) are quite small (around half an megabyte in most cases).

Thanks to everyone who continues to make MPC one of the best Free Music Resources on the web!

Hi, I got a little question about all the musics, are all they royalty free?

Well, ignoring the fact that MPC downloads are no more: No, you cannot simply assume that the music posted here is royalty-free. You will have to ask each author separately if you can use their tune(s).
