@bonnie One last thing: So for the password, I would like to confirm that, since my email is nevetsepirc21@gmail.com, I would enter nevetsepirc21@gmail.com.file as the password. Is this true?

.file? i can only assume that i put that in my placeholder email in the instructions instead of .com (fixed it now though)

 

but yea no just put your email and nothing else

 

edit: @StevenC21 phew that was a close one then :o

Grr. That would be yet another mistake I made. I'm just glad I checked before attempting to upload YET AGAIN...

@bonnie I believe I succeeded finally! Thank you for helping me dude, I really appreciate how you didn't mock me for my incredible ignorance.

@bonnie Final spammy update: How long should it take for me to get the email response? Its only been like 2 minutes, but that is still longer than I expect from an automated service.

It's not automated. That's why you email in advance, to cut days off of the waiting time.

 

That's also why you should have included a brief comment explaining what happened, just in case. You'll probably be fine if you didn't though.

All process would be easier if you had filezilla and follow some tutorials around youtube. Oh well. Not much to comment.

Why make your life harder when you can make it easier and less painful. With program you can see uploading process instantly and doesn't require command lines.

When will we get a more modern and user-friendly way to upload wads?

I believe @Linguica once mentioned there was a plan to create a web-based upload process for Doomworld's own file hosting (in addition to continuing to be an idgames mirror).

 

Not sure what the status of that is though.

It wouldn't really be easier, and I don't know why people always say that. I have had literally 0 luck with programs like Filezilla, which actually require setting up and (in my case) sometimes just don't work at all. Actually having to go out of your way to install and deal with something like that is no doubt significantly harder and more complicated than just typing a couple lines in the CMD.

 

Also, the CMD wasn't even the problem here. His files would have been rejected regardless of what he used.

Well, I didn't have problems with setupping programs and following tutorial few times until I've got it right. Oh well. Both methods work if they're done right and properly.

From what I understand, it can become a size problem. That's about the only hurdle there is.

The people should know how to handle files in general

@bonnie Some people are just not used to using a Command Line.

 

Frankly, I always found the easiest success with just going to Add Network Place in Windows and typing in the address.  Then you can drag and drop into Incoming just as you would any other Windows folder.  No third party apps or following command lines needed or anything.

Nah. I wouldn't rest well if I knew that dude uploaded his maps untested and such by other people. I know I shouldn't care, but sometimes help can do more harm than good.
