I got this e-mail from a guy named Tim. He's a guy from Filefront files. This is his e-mail:

Hi,

I'm Suleyman Eisenhower from AoE3 Files, a part of Filefront network. I'd like permission to place your files on Filefront's AoE3 page.

Thanks,

Suleyman Eisenhower
AoE3 Files Head Site Manager

Should I trust him; or not trust him?

Any thoughts?

I think that he's asked someone else (can't remember who) about placing their files on there and they accepted...

The website looks legit, and there doesn't seem to be any danger from giving him permission (even if he is actually dodgy)....

Well, I've put files on it before and nothing happened. So I will do it.

Why do you get e-mail from a Tim that apparently is a Suleyman?

It caused a lot of people to not trust my maps.

Suleyman Eisenhower has contacted me several times in the past asking my permission to place my maps on FileFront.

He is legitimate.

So he's just scrounging for files, on his bad website that no one goes on?

QWW123,
As I recall, (correct me if I'm wrong) you came here and ask people to check out your scenarios you had posted at Filefront. Several of our members suggested (because of your "name", among other things) you were pedaling "bad links".
I checked out your stuff on Filefront and suggested you post them here in the scenario section. You did, and with a little guidance from MosheLevi, you have become a ongoing producer of some pretty decent scenarios (more please).

Filefront is kind of like a AOE Heaven's "little brother". They are legit, just need to develop some more. You started there, don't turn your back on them.

Put in the past the doubts of some of our more skeptical members, you've proven youself. Time to move forward, guy.

I accepted. I don't have to put them on Filefront because Tim just puts them on it.

P.S. I'm making a new scenario.

Yeah, I wouldn't worry about it. More often than not, webmasters (yes I still use terms from 1996) want to make sure the author of whatever they are posting isn't going to make a fuss about them publishing their work. I know I used to email people from time to time if I wanted to use some of their stuff at WiCH, and I think I even did it here once.

It's more of a courtesy issue than anything else really, and plus, you can definitely know you are getting credit for it, too.
