Sometimes we get asked why we don’t provide direct downloads on our posts, and instead link to for instance the original forum topic.
We do this because we do not own the content we share. For that reason, we provide links to the creators post for credit, and often the creator doesn’t want someone posting their map without their permission. Another reason is that the creator might change the download link, leaving our post useless.
So basically, it’s a credit/ownership sort of thing. We pride out site in doing that- we don’t want to be jerks like other sites.
