    Default File not posted

    Hi everybody
    Just a short question: I sent a file and it was denied due to the following reason: "Please use link where it is from". What does this mean? As the link on the file within "My files" is no longer available, I cannot check this out. Any clarifigation on what to do now to get the file published is appreciated :-)
    Thanks, Albert

    Did you create the kmz file or did you download it from another site?

    I stored the kmz of my application from within GE on my desktop and uploaded it afterwards to Google Earth Hacks.

    Mr. Steiner -

    Your file has been approved.

    Our apologies, but a few years back people started downloading "professional" kmz files and then uploading them to our site as their own. Of course, the authors of the professional files took exception to this. In response, Google Earth Hacks added a way to submit a file's link instead of the file itself.

    However, in this case it appears that you are indeed the author and creator of this file and we are honored that you choose to submit it here.

    Albert's file showcases a great use of Google Earth, showing real-time aircraft in flight above Switzerland. Check it out here - http://www.gearthhacks.com/dlfile346...ffic3D.kmz.htm

    Hi, great to read that. Thanks a lot!
    As the link on my personal website has a mistake, it would be very kind if you can change it as follows:
    http://www.asteiner.org/software/airtraffic3d.php

    Thanks again and kindest regards
    Albert

    Welcome from me too. Appletom has said everything, we have seen files being uploaded only with kmz/kml files as if they have made them giving out to be the creators. It's not good.

    I denied your file because I saw it on Google Earth Blog:

    http://www.gearthblog.com/blog/archi...r_traffic.html

    That's why it's much better to use the link instead to avoid that problem.

    Great file anyway.
