API Upload Function Back Up

April 5, 2013

Dear SlideShare Community,

We are happy to announce that SlideShare's API functionality is back on, after it had been turned off about a week ago.

Last week SlideShare was hit by set of users who were abusing the API upload tool, and loading large amounts of spam onto the site. This was causing issues and delays with converting presentations for all of our users. To prevent problems for everyone, we temporarily shut down the API upload function so that we could make changes and prevent spammers from abusing it.

This fix has now been implemented and API uploads are back and running properly. We are also putting in place other anti-spam measures across the site. Thank you for your patience, and, as always, we look forward to seeing more great presentations from you.

-The SlideShare Team
