    Mods , can you'll allow .rar to be loaded as attached files ? now days people are using winrar more than winzip already . So having .rar is much better . just a suggestion

    (i can't load any files cause they are all in .rar and I guess alot are starting to use win rar already)

    thank you

    Well... even if you do a random survey.. its ZIP that is the most dominating compression format used! Windows XP has a builtin support for Compressed ZIP Archives!
    And i guess.. Windows 98 users install WINZIP as soon as they reinstall there entire system...

    So... even though RAR is used much more.. its basically used for large files in split volumes!
    While...for common use.. ZIP is the best!

    While a ZIP user by default cannot open RAR files... a WinRAR user can easily convert his RAR files to ZIP!
    Hence... if you want to see that maximum people can uncompress and see the files... i feel ZIP is the format!

    Still, i would look into this and allow RAR files!

    Hey zoom ...

    what about 7zip ...
    i use it ... it can unrar, unzip etc as well as it is better in compression than any other program ...
    and the best is ... it is open source ...
