    I like this idea. Like said, Matt would approve people, and there should be categories for everything so it's not all a jumbled mess. Example: There is a folder for BRGen6, SRUSA NNS13, etc. inside each folder would be Real Cars, Fictionals, Alternates, Retros, Base schemes, Templates, etc.

    I have faith that Matt knows how to categorize it, and make it as neat as possible and easily accessible. I am just waiting for it to happen. haha

    Honestly I haven't explored the idea of categories per user.

    I was going to make a category that was named after the username of the person who wanted to use SRD for storage of their files.

    Anything beyond that would clutter the downloads section I think. How hard can it be to click the user you're looking for and finding the file? The downloads section already has a way of sorting files from newest to oldest.

    I think aside from user categories, would it be possible for seperate folders, like by different mods? I know a lot of people design for both DMR, SRD, Bullring and other types of mods. Maybe just make categories depending on which mods they design for?

    I think a user name is all it needs. in my opinion extra folders would over complicate a simple set up. just my 2 cents.

    I like the user name idea as well, it would make it easier for people to find what there looking for and you don't have to add a bunch of sections to get to the download

    Just read over the thread... and this sounds like a great idea.

    Usernames sounds like it would make it simpler to sort through, I guess.

    Ok, so now you are wondering how you're able to upload files right?

    If you want to be able to be considered, click the "User CP" in the navbar. Look to your left where it says networking. Then click group memberships. As seen in the provided screenshot :) Join requests are queued up for me to accept or deny. You won't be able to upload anything until you are accepted and get a response back from me.

    So is it a type of thing where we submit a scheme for approval and get approved on that or is it just a general acceptance based on prior paints?

    General acceptance on prior paints. My biggest thing I am looking out for is if people are making their own bases. If there are people wanting to upload stuff that have just slapped together cars from using bases at one place, numbers at another, and logos at a different site, you won't be accepted.

    I'm getting ready to post a 'how to' on how to upload to the site and some requirements to go along with it. I'll link to it here when it's ready.

    I hope it's okay that I put "derp" as my reason for joining in the request. I thought it was pretty obvious why I wanted to join. :D

    Hey Matt, is it alright if we make that our default group, or should we not do that? haha

    I wish I was purple. It would match my username perfectly. I think you should watch out for something that did not make it come up here. All I'm giving.
