We have a lot of META posts on the homepage and all of them are valid concerns. I personally know what a huge pain-in-the-ass it is to put in so much time and effort to try and share content with the users and then have all that taken down in one fell swoop. But let's deal with this nagging issue as a community rather than throwing out the rule book and making up our own individual rules.
Because I see a lot of non-MEGA links posted here ever since the MEGA crisis started. I admit, it's a temporary solution, but I feel it totally defeats the purpose of this sub. Existing non-MEGA links won't be taken down, but I have adjusted the spam filter to accept only mega.nz, mega.co.nz and self-posts. I can't believe we didn't have that filter on before now.
We've had a lot of discussions about going private in the past. We'd also discussed other potential solutions to our problem. But we saw a decline in takedowns when users started posting the link and the key seperately, so we'd put that all aside. It's safe to say that's not the case anymore.
I'm going to consolidate all the solutions users had suggested in the previous discussion threads and update this thread with the list. I hope we can decide on a solution based on the feasability.
Please refrain from creating more META posts as they will simply clutter up the homepage and actual content will just get buried. Instead, post your opinions and questions here.
