And we can host stuff for use in other websites? That's a relief. When releasing my hack demo on another site, I stuck it in megaupload since I didn't think it'd be proper to link the one in the file bin.

I would like to note that the "My Files" option doesn't suddenly bend the original rules of the file bin. You still can't upload things such as ROMs there, or else they will be subject to removal of file bin rights.
Keep that in mind.

Hey, I should mention, by the way, that there seems to be a problem with My Files. It happened with the File Bin, too. As per this post, the size limit is supposed to be 4 MB. But I was trying to upload an image of a level in Lunar Magic to the File Bin that was only ~6100 KB, and it refused to upload. I thought it might just be my browser being slow, but I waited for hours for it to upload and nothing changed. (I might have even tried leaving it there overnight.) I also thought it might just be down or not fully functional temporarily, but I tried it several times and on several different days, and each time, I got the same result. I don't know what the deal is...is it just me?
Okay, besides my facepalm-worthy math (apparently, I can integrate a combined trigonometric and logarithmic function but don't know how many kilobytes are in a megabyte)...
That's weird...I saved it as a JPEG and got the exact same file size. The same goes for a BMP file. You weren't talking about exporting it to a bitmap via Lunar Magic, but rather opening it and resaving it with something else, I suppose?
Okay, never mind. Wow...I had a 6157 KB image, saved it with GIMP, and ended up with a 58.7 KB image. Lunar Magic officially fails at saving levels as pictures. I'm glad I downloaded that program.

20mb is fine if you can manage your space properly. Use an offsite image/video site like Photobucket and YouTube for screens and videos, and just the file bin for things those sites cannot host.
Since we're speaking of hosting, I really like SkyDrive, and if you already have a Hotmail/Live account, you don't need to sign up. Yes, you can directly link pictures, although the URL will be really long.
