What is MyPasteText.com all about?

My Paste Text is a website where you can store any text online for easy sharing. The website is mainly used by programmers to store pieces of sources code or configuration information, but anyone is more than welcome to paste any type of text. The idea behind the site is to make it more convenient for people to share large amounts of text online.

What is your Acceptable Use Policy?

Broadly speaking, the site was created to help programmers. However, you are welcome to post any type of text in my paste text. Please do not post email lists, password lists, or personal information. The "Report Abuse" feature can be used to detect such pastes and delete them. Do not spider aggressively on the site.

What is MY My Paste Text?

You will receive your My Paste text when you create an account. This means you can save the pastes now and have complete control over them at any time in the future. It's also great to have your own MyPaste text to share your paste with others. Your My Paste text is public and private at the same time. Your public pastes are visible to everyone while private ones are only visible to you.

How do folders work?

When you create a new paste, simply select the folder where you want the past to be posted in. If you click the + symbol, you can also create a new folder, and the paste will then be placed into that folder. When editing a paste you can move/remove a paste from a folder.

Who can see my folders?
If a user creates a folder, and puts 'public' pastes in that folder, to others, those pastes will show up in the root folder of that My Paste Text account. However, for the logged in user who created the folder, those pastes will show in the folder they were put in.

Note: Folders are meant to organize your own private My Paste Text better and are only visible to the logged-in user who created them.

How many pastes can I create?

The short answer is: as many as you like.

There are however some limitations to fight off spammers.

Guests can create up to 10 new pastes per 24 hours.
members can create up to 20 new pastes per 24 hours.

Further limits are:
Guest can create unlimited 'public' pastes, unlimited 'unlisted' pastes, but can't create 'private' pastes.

But I see some people post way more than those limits, how is that possible?
Some users have special permissions to their accounts. If you want to post more than 250 pastes per day, please contact us.

How does your Spam Filter work?

My Paste Text uses an automated spam protection system that will sometimes display a captcha request after you have tried to create a new paste. When you get a captcha request, you have 10 minutes to enter a valid response. If you don't validate your paste within 10 minutes, we will automatically remove it.

Various things can trigger this captcha spam protection.

A few examples are:
- trying to create a certain amount of new pastes in a short period of time. (flooding)
- trying to create pastes with links in it.
- trying to create duplicate pastes.
- trying to create pastes with 'suspicious' keywords in it.

Is there an API?


Who can see my pastes?

If you create a public paste (public by default), your paste will show up for everybody in the menu on the right and on the archive pages. You can also create unlisted pastes, these items will be invisible for others unless you share your paste link. If you are a member of My Paste Text you can also create private pastes. These items can only be viewed by you when you are logged in and are therefore password protected. Search engines will only index public pastes.

How can I get content removed?

You are only able to remove items that you created while you were logged in. If you pasted something as a guest, there is no quick delete option. You can however use the 'REPORT ABUSE' button above each paste, and explain why the item has to be removed. We try to handle all removal requests within 24 hours. You can also email us.

How does your hits counter work?

The hits shown above each paste displays the number of unique visitors. We only count a visitor once per certain amount of time, and we try to filter out bot & scraper traffic from the hits counter. We also do not include hits which came from the RAW version of pastes, so only the hits that happened on our actual website.

What is the maximum paste size?

The maximum size a paste can be is 512 kilobytes (0.5 megabytes). This is should be enough for almost any script, and it prevents people from jamming our servers.
