    Hi,

    My name is John, co-founder of http://Min.us - a new and free photo and file sharing platform hoping to revolutionize simple sharing with drag and drop and simplicity.

    See our test gallery here: http://min.us/minusinteractivegallery and my profile http://min.us/u/john - we currently have unlimited uploads with 50mb per file limit max.

    We found a few users here sharing your wonderful maps with the community using our photo sharing and file sharing tool, Min.us.

    So we decided to support the community by purchasing a sponsored sticky.

    Would love to hear everyones' feedback and how we can improve, and please be sure to share Minus with your friends if you like it!

    All suggestions and feedback are welcome =)

    Thanks
    John@min.us

    Looks useful for the kind of stuff we do around here, a lot of us use dropbox and this looks like a reasonable alternative to file sharing.

    Does it make me cool that I was already using this? (and imgur)

    It is scary how easy this is. I thought I made a mistake when my image just appeared on the website so easily. I will recommend this to my friends and start using it myself.

    I just used minus for my first map submission. First impressions are that it's great. I can recommend it to anyone.

    Made an account and tried it out. Seems like a nice thing to have! Got the taskbar thing too for good measure.. Not sure if It will replace dropbox for everything (there's a certain benefit to the sync feature), but for less important quick images this is certainly practical!

    Thanks, glad to hear ! :D

    Minus is more for micro-file sharing and photo galleries and publishing at the moment, not large file backups and syncing.

    Minus is also more fun :) Be sure to invite your friends, especially the artistic ones and ones that share a lot of files, photos etc...

    Just tested this out, I really like it! Saves having to constantly go to Dropbox if I just want to upload a single picture temporarily to show someone. While i'll keep using Dropbox for my files I want to back up and store and everything, Minus seems like a great tool. I really love how simple it is and how few options you're presented with - it's just sign up / in, upload picture, you're done.
    I also really like how it wasn't just a single sponsored message which was then left, seeing someone actively respond to us is actually what made me think I should try it out, so yeah, awesome :D
