Hi All, and welcome back from the long downtime. I'll go into a little more details in a bit, but first, in order to ease in the new servers, there are a couple of changes:

1. Guests are not allowed to download for the moment.
2. New uploads aren't working yet (nor is edit attachments) edit attachments is back!

Everything else *should* work, but if not, please let me know here. My priority now will be to get the edit attachments part working so people can update their files, and after that the upload queue.

Some things may be slower than before - specifically posting threads, but thats becuase I haven't fully optimised the site to run on the newer hardware so please be patient and I wish you a warm welcome back!

Regards
Delphy

I just joined now that the site is back! I dunno if it is supposed to work, but the bar at the top doesn't do anything when I click it. I can't find where to get an Avatar or anything, either (but I was sent to the place to do so when I had to agree to the rules before posting).

They siad "It doesn't work when I click search". Just like all the other comments, they mean that when they click "search"...it doesn't work. :lol:

There's nothing to take a picture of! :p

Also, clicking emoticons doesn't work either. And by that, I mean nothing happens. :rofl: The Love/Disagree/Whatever buttons at the bottom of posts don't work, either. Seems like any buttons that aren't links are broken.

How to report:



Hi D, I see that the search box dropdowns are not - well, dropping down. I just see this link in the toolbar: http://www.modthesims.info/t/446870#navbar_search



In the meantime, try this.

Why can I only see other people's images but I cannot see any one of my uploaded images? Will it be working after a while?

Some images may be broken right now when using the "static" shortcut. I'll need to run a maintenance script to fix those up which probably wont be till tommorow.

Everything"s working fine here, so far, apart of a few thumbnails not showing in S2 downloads but I guess it will be solved, just a matter of patience.. (served by www.modthesims.info )
Big THANK YOU for the hard and patient work, you will need a Deserved Birthday Break soon :)

Thank you for all your work. It's still a bit buggy in places - sometimes the dropdowns don't work, some images don't show - but it's better than nothing at all. :) I feel like I'm in my web developing days all over again, back when I coded my first NeoPage and saw how it was all slowly coming together ;D

I'd like to echo a lot of others - thanks for the work you do and help others do on this site, and when will SexySims be back up? I get a '502 Bad Gateway' error when I try to go there, and below that it says 'nginx/0.8.53' if that helps at all. Again, thanks!

Thank you Delphy, all seem to be back on track and fine, while the site was down these past few days I enter myself into "Rehab" from being on MTS. My therapist told me I was doing very well with my recovery from MTS, but today I have fallen off the wagon. I do not think there is any hope for me being addicted to MTS day after day. :blink: Happy Birthday Delphy's :beer:

VioletPadfoot
29th Jun 2011, 2:18 AM
Yay! It's back! I think I was suffering from ModTheSims withdrawal or something. Thank you Delphy for the hard work you put into the site over the weekend!

Question:
2. New uploads aren't working yet (nor is edit attachments)

Everything else *should* work, but if not, please let me know here. My priority now will be to get the edit attachments part working so people can update their files, and after that the upload queue.
Does this mean we can't submit anything new? And if so do you have any idea when we will be able to again? (you're probably tired of the question "when" by now but I spent the downtime creating stuff)

First off, happy birthday Delphy!!!! :beer: I was so happy to get on the web this morning and find MTS up and running.

1. Guests are not allowed to download for the moment.

This may have changed since I discovered it this afternoon, but I was still able to download as a 'guest' - i.e. without being logged in. (I had to clear my modthesims.info cookies in order to stay logged in, but I was downloading for some time before I realized that I kept getting logged out every time I switched pages.)

Great, glad it all back!

I searched for mts and ended up navigating to echo.modthesims2.com. It is faster, can't log in. No idea what server is for what. Perhaps I oughta go pillaging through your journal. :D

Anyways, everything seems to be coming back slowly. There is a few connection issues, database errors and what have you. I'm sure it'll be a few days before its all right again.

/me shares some patience with everyone ;)

Also, happy birthday! Hope you do something fun old man :P

Heh, 5 days of answering repetitive questions on Twitterverse, and now back to answering repetitive questions on the site. Welcome back, everybody! :jest: Ain't it grand to be back home?

I do get this before I logon, but only on FF 5.0 (other browsers seems OK, ie Opera, IE, Safari, etc). Once I refresh the page or login, however, it is gone.

Hello,

Thanks for beeing back. ;)
Just found out one problem: logging in does not work for me via modthesims2.com, only with modthesims.info.
When I follow a link to modthesims.info and log in, everything works fine. When I start on modthesims2.com and log in, I get the "Thank you for logging in" page and the title bar switches and shows my username, but after clicking on a next page (no matter, what page it is), the title bar switches back to a not logged in state (the log in possibility appears), and clicking on a download link leads to the error message "No cookies found! There is no valid MTS login found".
I tried the standard security options of firefox (accepting third party cookies, too), and then I can find a cookie from modthesims2.com, but nevertheless it does not work. Cache was deleted several times.
This appears on my notebook (Vista) and on my PC (Win 7). Im using Firefox 3.6.18.

Thanks!

Same problem here, but thanks to you I could access the website by using the .info address :)

Nysha
29th Jun 2011, 12:51 PM
The .com address is depreciated, and has been ever since TS3 came out - we keep it around mainly so old links aren't broken. Its lack of cookie support is deliberate, as that way we can serve images from .com without having cookie checks clogging up the intertubes every time. Use .info instead. :)

Same thing happened to me. I've been trying for 2 days to log in. The redirection box would tell me I was logging in, but I never arrived! Maybe a mention on the news page, for us old timers to not use that address.. might keep us from getting lost! :D smilie

Bchbch Walk
29th Jun 2011, 1:28 PM
No, nothing has been lost. And anything we do lose won't be threads :p .

Are you sure? Because when I click on my post in the message confirming I submit something, it says thread invalid. It should say that it is still in the moderation queue. It happens with both things I submit.

And I don't know if this will fix itself but thumbnails to uploads "don't exist" and all of the pictures on the upload are little question marks in blue boxes.

I've been logging in and downloading using the modthesims2.com address since I first came to the forum. I've been using it for sims 3 too! Worked fine, up until the recent upgrades. :) Not sure cookies were necessary either, because I often downloaded without even having to log in.

Thank you to Delphy for the forum and the upgrades! Things feel really smooth!

Nysha
29th Jun 2011, 1:38 PM
Do you mean the two "Eclectic Abode" uploads, Bchbch?

Yes, true happygolucky - downloads are enabled for guests (although not right now, they'll be re-enabled in a few days), but you can't give Thanks/post comments/use your download history unless you're logged in, so I would suggest logging in :p .

The new servers are setup in a slightly different way to the old ones - hence why logging in on modthesims2.com doesn't work. However, it is my intention to do a domain redirect on that domain (for www) anyway, so that everybody ends up on the modthesims.info domain in the end. :) That'll probably happen sometime this week, but for now, please don't login using modthesims2.com, it Just Wont Work. :)

As for sexysims, it'll be done in the next few days.

All of my thread and upload pictures are missing. I can't even see my own avatar ಠ_ಠ
I don't know if it's just my internet provider playing around with me, but the site now loads on my browser at superspeed.

I think that well makes up for the missing pictures! : D

There seems to be a problem uploading attachments over 2.0 MB. In Firefox, upload appears complete but never shows up. In IE, I get this message: "File Too Large. Exceeds PHP's limit of 2.00 MB."

Did the limit somehow get reset?

*Edit* Also, newly-saved attachment descriptions don't seem to be showing up. Nevermind.

Liza495
1st Jul 2011, 8:29 AM
Just to add to this that sometimes I got problems to log in here, since my IE often seems buggy on sites I visit (shutting down or so). So I refresh every ten minutes, clear Cache, etc. Other than this the missing photos issues occured for me about a month ago before MTS maintenance. Maybe a server issue in matter of photo storage or whatso.

Since the site has been back, I can't get to sexysims. I keep getting a 502 bad gateway error screen. I have tried clearing my temporary internet files and history, and retyping the address, but still have the problem.

For one people if you just read the previous posts, it has been mentioned that SXS is down, and it has been replied that it is being worked on. So no need to keep mentioning that.

However, to Delphy and others, how long do you expect it to be down?

And I for one am so thankful to Delphy and anyone else who maintains this site, without you modders couldn't upload, and mod users couldn't download, at least not all in one great place. :) Good luck with the site, and thanks!

There seems to be a problem uploading attachments over 2.0 MB. In Firefox, upload appears complete but never shows up. In IE, I get this message: "File Too Large. Exceeds PHP's limit of 2.00 MB."

Did the limit somehow get reset?

Still getting the same error message. Is this being looked into? (Not trying to be a bother, just wondering if my post was acknowledged. I know you guys are busy around here.)

Thanks so much for all your hard work in getting this site back up and running - considering how much work has to be done in such a big move, there have been surprisingly few problems! The one big problem I'm finding is how the page keeps jumping up and down every few seconds, corresponding with every time the 'News' item at the top of the page changes, which makes it hard to either read or write posts. I saw that someone posted a thread about this issue but then marked it 'solved', but for me, it's still happening. So, don't know if it's just me, or if others are experiencing it as well. I use Firefox 3.6 and have refreshed my caches.

EDIT: Oh, I see someone has posted a new thread about this and you're aware of the issue: http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=447219 . OK, glad you've got it in hand!

Hard to find a link to something that is no longer there. The full title is:
Extended game core which allows switching otherwise hard coded behavior
The auther is AD85.
There is a link at sexyms2 to that mod:

Hi, I don't know if I should post this here in case it's just a problem with me but I didn't want to create a whole thread dedicated to a small issue I have just in case it's a technical issue with the site - I'm unable to change the games I own under my compatible section in downloads, it keeps reverting back to the ones I had before even though I click 'save'. Was this addressed before, if so I'm sorry, just wondering since I would like to see what new downloads I'm able to get with the newest expansion pack I have.

anobouzu: if you'll notice, at the top of the profile page it says that changes may take a while to show up. Just wait a little while and they'll save OK. I've changed the caching slightly so little niggles like this still need to be worked out. I'll add it to my list though.

Well, this is a bit complicated. The mod is the base for CORE by BaXiM at SXS. AD85 is still updating his part of the mod for his own use but share it with the community. In the thread that was active before the move, me and other users supported it. CORE at SXS is not yet updated for Generation so there are links there to the removed thread.

Maybe it's time to have the support of EGC in the CORE thread at SXS? The two mods are installed differently and I have written a rather big install guide at page 60 in the deleted thread. If I only could have that guide back I could post it at SXS.

The CORE is the alternative to Awesomemod and you don't like us to move over there do you? ;-)

I have uploads still waiting in cue as well, but since I can still find them in cue and they haven't been erased or anything, I assume we don't have to resubmit them but we just have to be patient until all the site problems are settled.

Its not uploads in the queue. Delphy's first post says new uploads aren't working yet, a later one says uploads in the queue are fine. I however have new items created since the downtime that I want to share, thus wanting to know when it will be alright to do so. ~VP

Morphar: We have a policy on MTS to basically tag (ie make invisible) any outdated core mods, becuase a lot of people download them and then complain when they don't work with a particular new patch level or whatever. Since the mod wasn't updated (it's updated on his own site), that means that the version we have here is massively out of date and can cause issues for people.

I can paste you the contents of your post, so you can re-post it over on SXS. Alternatively, if the original creator wants to come here and update it thats fine too - we can then untag it. The key is to have something thats updated and works with current patch levels. :)

@Screaming Mustard: I still see 1 item in the queue for you. :)

@VioletPadfoot: Probably in the next couple days. :)

I saw a wierd glitch the other day. I don not know if it has to do with the server or what, but I never seen it before.

A few days ago my laptop's IP Address was blocked :blink: I assumed it was because someone was caught trolling from it like last week or so, and now it's mysteriously worked again :| I don't know whether to be happy or confused. Granted, now the stupid thing won't even turn on without crashing so I think it could have been a virus, too. This actually happened on a fashion forum I go to often too, so I think it was virus, but in case it isn't, thought you guys should know. :giggler:

Oh, and I accidentally uploaded my avatar like three times because I'm an idiot. I didn't read that notice. :rolleyes: Sorry about that. :(

I get this to, it's the ads that cycle at the top of the page that's doing this for me. The "news" section, that cycles through 1-4. I'm using safari with a reso of 1216x676.(I use my hdtv) Although it seems to be fixed now.

First, thank you so much for all your hard work and updates! Yay for changes and improvements! :D

Noticed a few issues after the upgrade.

1) Some downloads have a missing thumbnail image, although sometimes the thumbnail image is still on the server. This was the case with a few of mine, I edited, they got fixed, but inactive creators won't be fixing their thumbnails. Here's a recent one with a missing thumbnail.

2) Some downloads, in the related pages tab, don't have pics of recolors. For example, this one.
