hello everyone!
do you know exactly the maximum size of a file to be put in the download section?

Not sure, but I do know there is a 139 MB size file in the download section: By the Order of the King.
World record holder for a single game of Carcassonne using 10 007 tiles!

woa...  I was thinking that 15 mb size of my file was too much!  :)
thanks!

p.s.
I give a look to the "By order of the king" and it's really nice!

well... I just tried to upload a file of 15 MB... but the forum said me that the maximum size of a file must be 7.24 MB!

Could be a special upload, By the Order of the King. I know many of these expansions was handled by several members to make these fan expansion have a unified package look like an easy recognisable .pdf file with rules etc.

The 7 MB cap is about right. I always have to compress the CAR a bit so I can upload it. If I go for higher quality, the file is often 15-16 MB, and the site won't let me post it.

If a file is no more than 15-20 MB, I can upload it to my server for the time being. I have a lot of space and I doubt I will use it all today and 10 years forward. I could easily reserve 1gb of server space for you guys.

This, if you can somehow send the file to me, for example thru cc-league chat:

http://sydby.com/carcassonne/irc/

You can also mail it to me if your mail server can handle larger file. PM me for E-mail address.

I will then mail / message you back the url to the file and also make a simple html page in that folder for easy browsing or link to the file via download section here. Should work I believe.
  The server is adfree with no download restrictions.
