- What file types aren't allowed?
- .scr, .exe, and .cpl are blacklisted. Everything else is fair game.
- Banned Content
- Do not upload: Child pornography, viruses/malware, entire episodes of anime, or full length episodes of TV shows, or the New Zealand shooting video. I will purge your account/uploads if anything you upload violates these rules.
- You cannot use Catbox for commercial services without prior approval. Examples include as a CDN, image host for your business/ecommerce site, or a source for videos that are streamed on sites other than files.catbox.moe directly.
- Should you violate any of the above banned content, your offending files will be deleted, your account (should you have one) banned, and your IP blacklisted.
- But what if I really wanna upload [insert banned content]?
- The file is going to be deleted, and you're going to get banned.
- Are you a pomf.se clone?
- Yes/No. The site is based around pomf's "simple sharing" aspect, but no code comes from pomf.
- Are you (F)(L)OSS?
- Why don't you release your source?
- Because a lot of it is messy and I don't like competition.
- ShareX code?
- Why are my .html/.php/.ht* files being served as plain text?
- Throughout the entire month of November 2016 I had a massive amount of phishing pages being uploaded. CSP would not have fixed the way they were phishing.
- Why can't I upload .gif files bigger than 20 MB?
- Are you stupid or something?
- How can I support Catbox?
- Thanks! You can donate with card via Patreon!
- What information is kept on users?
- Your IP address is stored with your account. You shouldn't think it's private information anyways.
- Why do you need an email address?
- Because it helps if I ever need to contact you. You don't need to put in a real email. I never validate them - you'll just miss out on my love letters!
- Why do you need to keep my IP address?
- For security purposes. IP addresses are kept with accounts in the database, and normal access logs are wiped monthly.
- What happens if my file receives a DMCA claim/removal request?
- If your file is actually copyright infringing, it's going to get deleted. I have the sole discretion of determining that.
- protip for avoiding your file getting reported: don't post the link publicly, like on a forum.
