I have read a general annoucement mentioning that users can upload their games according to certain rules to the Abandonia FTP server. However, I don't see any information regarding this FTP server. I have a huge collection of golden oldies that are not available here and I could really contribute with several of these games, if only I knew how.

Another thing: are screenshots and reviews absolutely necessary? I don't think I have the time to do them, and I would be glad if someone else did them.

#1. Find out if any of your games are Abandoned.
#2. Ask Kosta if you may upload them and if he says yes, he'll give you access to the FTP sever.
#3. Use a FTP program to make a folder on the server and upload your games to there.
#4. It is recommended that you make the reviews and screens for the games. If you can't, please inform Kosta.

I hope that helps.

Great to hear you want to contribute! :Brain: :Brain:

What you should do is check that the games you have are:

a)Abandoned. If they are still being sold in a way that makes money for the publisher they are not abandoned (generally this means if they can still be bought as new, we can't use them!)

b)Not already on the site

c)Not on this list

If they pass all of those criteria and you think they are good enough and deserve to be on the site, send a PM to Kosta and he'll tell you what to do next!

EDIT: I spent ages writing a perfect post and in come Titan and Fawful with half-hearted efforts! :ranting: Thanks Guys! LOL LOL

Welcome!

I'm new offical greeter of new members (what a sentence)! :blink:

There are a lot of ways to contribute site developing, these are some of them:
- you can review games that we send you - Check here!
- you can create your own screenshots of games that are already on site (and that need new screenshots) - Check here!
- you can help in translating abandonia to your mother tongue (if your mother tongue isn't English) - Check here!
- you can ask administrators about uploading some of your favourite games (of course with your review, too) - Check here!
- you can help people here on forum - no any special link, but just a friendly warn: Don't spam! (if you don't have to)

In the name of whole site I wish you plesant stay here at 'Abandonia - Home of abandonware games!' Enjoy! k:

Also, if you didn't already watched our "Posting And You..." movie you should better do!

Leonardi, Little Dude - each of you should write a list of titles you have. Then post them in here for further analysis. We will try to sort out the titles that are already on the site or are not abandoned, and afterwards you will have a clean list of titles you can submit to the site.

After that, refer to Painless FTP tutorial for further directions.
