Surly Storage - How Do it Do?

Recommended Posts

Surly Storage is a feature available for TreeFiddy subscribers and members.

I wanted to start this thread to answer questions on how it works and collect feedback on the initial rollout of it and what we can possibly improve about it. Currently we are looking to allocate ~5TB of storage (5000GB), so that our users can store images, gifs, videos, documents, anything that is legal and not copywritten (This exposes our site to liability so I am going to err on the side of caution - if I receive takedown requests your files will be deleted.)

This storage will be redundant, however it is not "enterprise" grade, there will be offsite backups and multiple copies but don't put the only copy of your family photos on it - that's what Dropbox and Google Drive are for!

This is a great idea. I've got tons of, um, let's say sensitive files that I really would prefer to not have on my computer so now I can just store them on Surly.

That doesnt frighten you a little about what some people may upload?  How can you possibly police that?

self policing is pretty good - also as long as we take it down as soon as it's reported we can avoid sticky situations. If we are fighting each takedown request that's when we get into hot water.

Also, people are paying for the community - I'm not sure sabotaging the community they help fund is what they are wanting to do.

Can you take other member's storage space if they don't want it? Asking for rage.

That is EXACTLY who I was thinking of.  I know he is in jail, but if somebody threw up some child porn, knowingly or not knowingly,  I would think some questions from the FBI would be asked.

Look at your phone.  Now look for this icon, and click on it:

I’m still unable to join because my credit card isn’t accepted, same problem I had months ago. If there was a fix for this that I missed let me know.

I've needed a safe place to store my logins/passwords and SSN.  This sounds like just the place.

That's too much for us - I will say we are way over-provisioning at the moment and starting at 5T - There's a lot more getting racked that we can "grow" into.

I'm wanting to take the back seat out of a minivan but need a place to keep the seat. Any volunteers to help me upload this thing to Surly Storage? It probably weighs about 60 lbs. Will this be humidity and temperature controlled storage?

gallery is live top right menu item - you can create your own albums and put permissions on them - I'm trying to see about making it easier to just upload in a post.

Should we open up the image upload to all members and leave the gallery and download sections for subscribers only?
