Broken Links, 4Shared and New Poll

Monday, March 16, 2009

4 Shared has disabled a lot of links. Frankly I have no idea why this happens, either due to bandwidth or just because I have a free account. I have contacted them and they said there is no way for them to bring it back - which is not good for me as when I started this blog I have used 4Shared as a source of backup.

So THANK YOU for being patient while I am trying to restore all the links and find any files that I might have backed up otherwise. If I don't have something backed up I just try and re-make it which takes me a long time. As you have noticed none of my newer items are on 4Shared, which is good because there is no waiting period and I do back them up on a disc now lol You live you learn I guess..

Also I have a new poll for you. Since it will take me awhile to fix all the broken links should I just delete all the items that are invalid or still keep them on my blog and while I slowly restore them? Please take a second to let me know which you would prefer.

Thank you and have yoursefl a wonderful week!! Hugs,

  1. I remember when I first found your blog, I downloaded EVERYTHING I could find! It was all so beautiful, and still is. Your older freebies are wonderful! I most especially like the CU links I could alter as I pleased. :)

    In the end, though, this is something only you can decide. Do you want to take the time to redo the links? If you don't, then that's the right decision for you, regardless of what your poll shows.

    This is just my opinion. ;) I really appreciate and thank you for the MANY freebies you have shared. {{{HUG!!}}}

  2. ^^^^^^^^
    Ditto! :]

  3. I love your work and downloaded everything you had. I think it depends on how much time you have and what you want to do. You are continuing to design new things and if it takes too much time to go back to the old, then I would just focus on the new. You are great to really care so much about all of this!

  4. Your older stuff is beautiful but you can't help that 4share has issues. If it is too time consuming to find and fix the old links. Then i say put what you deem appropriate in your new store and say good bye to your older stuff as the links break. You are very kind in that you have left your links up; however, you will find that other designers take their stuff down very quickly so I don't think you will hurt anyone's feelings if you change your policy to once the links are broken and if they are not in my new store then the kit is gone. I'm sure that everyone will understand.

  5. Hi, I was just wondering whether instead of having to redesign all your older kits in order to re-upload them would it be worthwhile asking your readers whether they may have those kits downloaded and be able to resend them to you. This way you would have copies for yourself. I for one have a few that I could send back to you.

    I don't think it matters if you take down all your older kits either as you are designing beautiful ones all the time.
