    Hi, good question.

    On Freesound, anything you upload is available to anyone on the site.

    My advice is to use an independent file transfer platform. WeTransfer is a really good site used my many industries for safe and private file transfers.

    You have the option to either send a download link in an email or you can get the link and paste it into a private message here on Freesound if you don't know the person's email address.

    You run an on-line magazine and podcast.

    I find it hard to believe you don't know how to send an e-mail with an attachment, or if it's too long how to make it available via a private area on your own blog/website.

    I think hapkemedia was hoping that there would be some way to make an exclusive upload on Freesound. I like to give the benefit of the doubt smile

    Understood that. And kudos to you for a helpful answer.

    Didn't mean to sound stern or harsh, but I guessed Ramona either knows her way round the internet, or must know people who do.

    If Ramona replies I will apologize directly. I've done that before on stuff I thought might be spam.

    Wibby.

    I don't think you need to apologise mate. I had to do a double take as well. You wouldn't believe the amount of spam posts I delete daily, so I like to think I can tell the difference. But this time I'm doubting myself now i've looked at the website hmmm

    Hi,
    thank you for this constructive discussion. Of course I know how to send an email oder use FTP or online services. But of course nobody can know this. I was asking for an option within freesound like "tick the box" for a special user.
    I will now look around freesound.
    Have a nice day!

    Nun, ich sende dir meine Entschuldigung, Ramona. ~ Well I send you my apologies Ramona.

    We get a lot of one-time users putting up links, but they don't introduce themselves further and never upload or download.

    I hope you find your answers elsewhere, but I also hope you find a useful reason to carry on with Freesound. I'm just an ordinary member and not part of the Freesound team, so I hope my skepticism doesn't reflect on them. They're a terrific bunch.

    Wibby
