I don't believe you can. You'll need to upload the file to a host site, then provide a link to the person you're PM'ing...

Attached files to posts I believe are mod/super/admin only (I believe)...

I'm trying to get the ROTS mod to one of the members and can't get it to email.

I don't think anyone can attach files to a PM. At least I can only do it to a post in one of the forums, not when sending a PM.

@JediRevan: If you can't send the file via email you can upload it to some file hosting service like www.FileFront.com and send the link to it instead.

Would I need the permission of the person who created the mod?

Not if you don't post the link publicly or remove the file when you're done.

Tangent:

Though can't attach a file per se, you could kick it old school and embed a file in a PM with uuencode. Large files might need a few PMs.

And tk102 has just scored Uber-Supreme Geek on the Geek test with that one.


From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"

I'd love to be able to join the chorus, but that would probably be a bit hypocritical.

Sending binhexed/uuencoded/base64-encoded files via PM is probably no hit though, the length limit of PMs would likely require hundreds of PMs to send most mod files, and Lucasforums isn't really intended to be a file hosting service.

Easier to just upload it somewhere and privately send the link to those who need it. If you don't provide the link publically it would probably count as private sharing among a closed group and not as redistribution.

You people are sad.

Is a bit too complicated for me, although that might be due to the fact that I didn't click that link

spoiler:

Quick & Dirty (easy) way to decode:

copy and paste the snippets in a .txt file, HOWEVER.. change or 'save' the extension to .uue

eg. filename.uue

Then double-click it.. WinRar, WinZip, etc. will "decode" it for you and place a readable version for you on the desktop
