I know uploading them to an open place like kotorfiles is a nono without author's permission...but is there seriously no other way I can make it easier on myself to share old PCGM mods?
The 'capper' honestly is publicly linking to it out right. Pretty much the same no-no as uploading to Kotorfiles without permission.
If you want to make it easier, you can upload the files to your storage medium of preference, however you MUST keep the link(s) personal/private.
This is pretty much how I have my archive of mods up on JumpStationZ. However, to DL anything, you need to receive a PM/email by me giving you the proper link.
The understanding is... If I EVER catch a link to my archives posted elsewhere (publicly).. I will password the directories. Or be a real ass and take down the whole archive no matter the loss.
If this doesn't look appealing to you, unfortunately there's not really much choice left. If it's a burden to look up the mods/links.. you can give your archive link (privately) to a choice member(s) to help you watch over the requests thread. If you're not around to hand out the link, then your wing (wo)man can .. hehe.
