HI all :-). As the title says Im looking for a different upload site from ModTheSims creative differences there are gonna drive me nuts. Also there insistance on long descriptions.... If I wrote well I wouldn't do visual creative stuff to unwind... The whole site has the feel of we want pro presentation on our terms.... That's not really the spirit I got into this sharing thing for. Had a model in moderation over there for days mod keeps saying catalogue info missing ITS NOT... in short I really do think they ask for allot for free they want some college presentation every time you share somthing, its just a mesh I really don't get it. My first upload there a remake of a base game caravan from strangeville got 1800 downloads that's cool n all but having to wait weeks to get a mesh turned down cos the moderator didnt like the fact a dyslexic creator said actually Id rather just give you a screen shot of item in game with location shown by graffic as SOME FOLK MAY NOT BE READING THE SITE AS ENGLISH SPEAKERS and google translate sucks ass. Really would appreciate alternative upload site for my getting used to sims and blender meshes any pointers appreciated.
Hosting your files and getting your content where people will see it are two different things.
You can choose a site that does both, like MTS or TSR, but you can also host them just about anywhere and then promote them through a variety of methods -- a studio here, submitting them to a content aggregation site/blog/Tumblr, posting links in 'promote your new stuff here' sections of forums (especially those focused on the type of content you're making), etc. (You can even put them on a site like MTS and then also promote them elsewhere.)
I appreciate the fact that MTS has standards for the quality of screenshots and info creators have to provide, and I wouldn't bother browsing a site that let people upload so easily if it didn't -- it'd be full of badly made content and badly presented content, and the only way to tell the difference would be to download it and test it. But their standards aren't the only acceptable way to present CC -- nor do they claim to be -- and I don't often feel like meeting them myself, and people post CC in all sorts of places.
If there is something you especially want to be seen, one of the best ways is submitting it to a big content aggregator like Sims4Updates or MaxisMatchCCWorld (to give an example of two very different types), or a topic-specific one.
You could also recruit someone who's better at words to write your text in exchange for giving them credit, fulfilling a request for them, etc. (The WCIF/Request/Collab section here is a good place for something like that. I wouldn't offer to do it for a stranger when I don't know anything about the CC, but if I saw a request for help that included some info, like a brief description and a screenshot, I might respond if I had time.)

I feel with you. I post a lot over at MTS socially, but the uploading over there? Nope. I probably could if I wanted to, but I prefer uploading CC the way I want. Their guidelines are heavy reading.
I do get that they want the posts to be readable - if you tell them you have problems with dyslexia, maybe they can point out a bit clearer what needs to be fixed in the text?
Having a spot here at Sims4Studio is probably a good option, since there's a lot of TS4 creators in one spot. Other than that, there's some other options. I made my own site a while back, to have control over the setup. That's probably not an option for everyone, but there are other forums, along with sites and places like Tumblr, Blogger, etc. you can make a spot. Simpearls and GoS has TS4 sections (although GoS does have rules to follow - but not as many as MTS, and the TS4 section is very quiet).

I agree with Leniad open a studio and post here. I have always felt that Sims 4 Studio is a stress free place to share creations. I have been asked several times to move to another site (including MTS) or to just upload somewhere else and with one exception I have always politely refused. I don't create to become well known or have thousands of downloads I just make things I want for my game and then enjoy sharing them. Here is the perfect place for that.
