Hi, I keep getting my FTP access application rejected due to missing files. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, I used Alcohol 120% to archive the disc and I packed it all into a 7z archive with the log and everything. I can't ask what I'm missing because I don't have the permission to send messages, could someone help me out?

What does the guide say about what needs to be done and uploaded?

I've read the guide multiple times and I can't find anything wrong with it aside from the version number which I have already fixed.

Really? So you've done all these steps then? Because your upload would have never been rejected if you had.

  • Read first our guides on how to scan, dump and upload your releases.
  • Check if we already have this release.
  • Make sure your contribution is allowed on the FTP.
  • Dump the media using proper software and hardware.
  • Scan all the artwork.
  • Each release must have a proper filename.
  • Each release must be compressed into an archive.
  • Check your files before upload.
  • Connect and upload to the proper server.
  • When using the upload account upload to a folder labeled with your nickname.
  • Complete your upload with a note.
  • Apply for FTP membership.

These are taken from the guide, and as you may have seen in the guide none are optional.
