Wiki and file uploads

A cronjob, (or daemon), would wait for the file to be finished uploading, then move it to another place. If it was SPAM, it could be erased. If it was someones attempt to use the FTP site as storage, they would be disappointed as the file disappeared very quickly.

Furthermore, the upload directory on FTP sites would almost always be configured to return zero files in it, and to deny any downloads for successfully guessed filenames.  That pretty much made the abuse impossible.

I suppose that using, which I see used a lot, is out of question?

You can email the PDF files to and info team will upload to file server.

Thank you very much!  That works for me, I'll wait until I make a "collection" of PDF files to be uploaded, and then I'll send them all at once.
