Files policy

VirusTotal allows a file to be scanned by a variety of anti-virus engines, which can be used to determine whether password protection is necessary.

When uploading mods, patchers, trainers or other tools known to be safe but falsely triggering some anti-virus software, pack the files into a 7zip archive and protect with the password pcgw and put the password in the file description. Failing to do so may prevent the files from getting approved.

The reason for this is to help prevent the PCGamingWiki website from being flagged for malicious software and being delisted from Google.
