The site uses File_ID.diz (a text file that's separate from the Upload.zip) to create the little description in the T-S file library. The other .txt file that is usually included is the readme.txt, but that's usually in the .zip file.

If more info on the upload is needed, Nels will usually send an email.

Sorry Andy, but the FILE_ID.DIZ goes INSIDE the zip, not outside it.

To wit:
CODE
When you include a file named FILE_ID.DIZ inside the .zip file containing the rest of your files it can be automatically extracted and used as the description of your file in file library databases like the one on FlightSim.Com. The format of the FILE_ID.DIZ is very simple and with a little effort on your part we can help people know exactly what it is you've created.

Lots and lots of help in the upload section. I recommend anyone uploading for the first time read and understand it.
