Default PMO's Easy Peasy Guide to Uploading Your Own Compilations

As you may know MB fully welcomes people uploading and exchanging music compilations as a way of showing peeps what they're into here, but if you are confused on how you are supposed to do this then help is at hand. 3 easy steps!

Step One: Make your Mix.
The first part's easy (or is it?), making your mix and choosing what tracks you want there. Once you've got your mix sorted pop all the files you want into a new folder. So that you have the tracks in the right order, you can set the track numbers by right clicking on the file and going to 'Properties', then 'Details', or more simply you can just put 01, 02 etc. before each track name.

Step Two: Zip It
Next you're going to have to turn your folder of music into a single compressed file known as RAR or ZIP files. To do this you will need a program such as Winrar which you can get here.
With this set up all you have to do is right click on your desired folder and choose 'Add to archive', choose whether you want it in ZIP or RAR format (it doesn't really matter), hit OK and a converted copy will be made.

Step Three: Up It
Now you just need to get it onto the interwebz. There's a number of websites dedicated to uploading files, some of the more popular ones are here...

Mediafire (My personal choice, seems to be quickest and links don't seem to die for a while.)
Megaupload
Rapidshare
Sendspace

They should be quite easy to navigate, often you just have to find your file with the browse option, hit OK, maybe add some tags and you're away.
After it has uploaded you will be provided with a link which goes to the file, which you can give to who you wish.

And you're done! If this looks a bit daunting, apart from the making the actual compliation part, it really isn't that long a process.
So get uploading in the Mixtape thread, (and anywhere else really, for instance if you want to put up a taster of a band) and share some of your booty!

Quick Note: While uploading Compilations is all fine and dandy uploading actual albums is not, you'll have to find other ways to do that

Stucked...

We can leave this here and incorporate it into the n00bs Guide to MusicBanter when it's finished.

THANK YOU I have had no idea how to do this until now, I've always been too embarrassed to ask anyone but now I don't have to.

If anyone's still wondering... you just control-click the files and select 'Compress' or 'Archive' for Macs. It archives them into compressed files that should work on PCs also. It works on mine anyway.

For Mac Leopard users, the command is "Compress" as opposed to send to archive. That was for the last operating system known as Tiger.
