We want to bring you something simple and user-friendly and that's exactly what upaste.me is.
We have a lot of optionals but you don't need any of them, simple paste your code or script choose your language and post it.
It's simple it's short and it's catchy, what more can you want. Instead of typing out a 7-9 letter word and then .com, .de, .uk or what not it's name includes everything needed so why not.
Here at upaste.me you currently have the choice of Public or Private pastes.
The differences are simple:
-Public pastes will be displayed for anyone to see, visible in the 'recent pastes' tab as well as in the archive
-Private pastes will not be listed at all, neither in 'archive', nor in the 'recent pastes', they can however be viewed by anyone with the correct link.
Deleting a paste is simple, that is if you have an account. Unregistered users do not have such privileges and may have to suffer the fate of having made a huge mistake.
You may however in urgent cases use the "report paste" function, depending on the situation and the evidence we may feel lenient to remove it.
For registered users however this is quite simple, once logged in visit your "my pastes" section, select the paste you wish to delete and confirm deletion.
