 +====== Media File Uploader ======
 +
 +When there is no direct link to the bargain or information supporting the bargain, you can use the media file uploader. To upload files,
 +
 +  - Go to "My Account" -> "view / files"
 +  - Click on "Upload New Files"
 +  - Select an image file by hitting the browse button. The following file types can be uploaded GIF, JPG, PNG, PDF.
 +
 +Your files page will also list out all your previously uploaded files. When you hover your mouse cursor over an image, a link will appear to let you post that image as a Deal.
 +
 +===== When should you use Media File Uploader? =====
 +
 +Generally, you should only post an image or a file as a deal when there is no direct URL to the bargain you wish to post. For example,
 +
 +  - The voucher comes in either an image or a PDF format.
 +  - You took a picture while you are at the store, and the product is not available on that store's website.
 +  - Your receipt from merchants to allow others to price match (but please remove your credit card information).
 +
 +In some situations there is an URL to the deal but it might still be a good idea to use media file uploader. For example,
 +
 +  - The page you are trying to post contains unique personal identification. For example an email newsletter from a merchant. In this case you might wish to do a screenshot of the web page, remove the personal information, and post the screen shot instead.
 +
 +==== When you SHOULD NOT use Media File Uploader? =====
 +
 +Here are some common mis-use of Media File Uploader when posting deals:
 +
 +  - Upload a product image or company logo. Please link **DIRECTLY** to the product page or company home page.
