    Lightbulb Has anybody ever considered taking all those multi-part links and uploading them as a single file?

    There are lots of services now that allow large files, I know I'd rather have 1 single download than 15.

    Downloaders always complain about this (also whatever host is used). Try hosting heaps of uploads yourself and maintaining them

    Yes, every uploader had considered this before starting to upload files. But there are various problems that come in when this is done. Filehosts are much quicker to nuke large files, filehosts randomly trap large files behind paywalls, you can't mirror your files over to ____ filehost because _____ filehost doesn't even take large files, and upload/download corruption becomes more common the larger transfers get.
    Those are just problems off the top of my head, there are probably more.
    Running your own host resolves almost everything, like EP used to. But hosting your own stuff introduces different and frankly even more serious issues.
    *PSA* Wii Redump collector's can now unscrub ISO files. So scrubbed games can now be verified. You can find the program to do this here
