Files attached to Presets page get deleted anyway. Please read the


more carefully.

Either you add a link to a remote hosted file or you create a subpage of
Presets and host the preset there. When making a wiki page, there are some
ways to circumvent the spam check, the two most important:
a) login and fill captcha (gains 30 points)
b) Split the edit into multiple (reduced the impact of external links)

You created an account named "wonderchook"! There is currently no
indication of successful account except the "enter password now".
