Would it be within rules to upload some of the larger (100M +) files as bittorrent files and then post the links on the files page? Im just thinking that i already have a lot of the files and have no problem seeding them. This occurred to me when i was having trouble downloading dafama2k7's unpredictable doom 3 v1.75 which comes in at a whopping 400M and i had a look around for a torrent instead.

If I remember right, torrents are against FileFront's policy. Even though there are some legit torrents out there, the majority of torrents are video games, movies, or music.

What a shame that people still use ZIP format for such big things, while there are many formats out there that compress a lot better, taking advantage of the much more powerful machines we have now than what was available when the ZIP format and standard compression methods it uses when created...

(Well, doesn't make much difference for that file in particular, but still ... most of the time, when the data is not already compressed before being put in an archive, it does :p )

As was answered in his second thread on this : Answered here

Faq do not ask for 'No CD' cracks, CD keys or help with mod chips. Do not discuss or post links to sites that have roms, sites with illegal video or audio downloads, or anything that could potentially violate copyright laws. If you think it is a questionable link, do not post it. P2P Sites and links are not allowed to be posted. Face it, we all know that they are used 99% for downloading illegal content. Bittorrent is an exception, and only in certain cases. In such cases, a staff member will approve the thread or post by posting in it to show legitimacy.

A torrent can be used as long as it is approved by a staff member and is what it is supposed to be. Otherwise it is Warez and you risk a ban.

So if I wanted to download POE for BF2, which is just over 1 gig, I'm out of luck? I actually want to...and my download manager doesn't have any 'resume support' for the file.
