Guys, I don't mean to intrude, but there's a problem. The Booty website, the one run by Pescado? I've been trying to access it for 3 days, and it won't load up, and if I try going to the main area, the server acts like it's not even there. Is there any way we can fix this?

As it's a completely different website owned by a completely different person, no, not really.

The booty usually comes back up in time.

The link to the Paysites Must Be Destroyed website, http://svs.paysites.mustbedestroyed.org:8080/, is indeed no longer working.

The Wayback Machine link (https://web.archive.org/web/20170928225524/http://svs.paysites.mustbedestroyed.org:8080/) for that seems to work, but don't be fooled; most of the links are broken and simply show a "Site Not Found" page from the hosting provider.

I did some sleuthing, and the old address, "paysites.mustbedestroyed.org" (without the "svs"), continues to have working Wayback Machine links, which you can access here (https://web.archive.org/web/20130809192427/http://paysites.mustbedestroyed.org:80/). However, not all of the links appear to have been archived. A list of all of the links that have been archived can be found here (https://web.archive.org/web/*/http://paysites.mustbedestroyed.org:80/*). Some of the download links are working, as seen here:

Times seem to be a bit hard for MATY. Interest in The Sims 4 "seems so low",[1] and I quote Pescado saying: "we presently lack the funding as support for the Municipality has been rather low as of late and nobody seems to actually want to BE a booty maintainer anymore as everyone who used to have this job has DIED"[2] and "See, ever since our viewership-based funding dried up, MATY has been funded in a rather unorthodox way: I have a guy paying our bills in exchange for MMO money. As long as I can supply his gambling addictions, the servers stay up in exchange for hosting his guilds' websites."[3]

What I meant to say was, do you think there's any way we could help Pescado? Maybe some of us could archive his stuff on SFS?

Change your link to: http://svt.paysites.mustbedestroyed.org:8080/
The first three letters are now SVT instead of SVS - that is why the old links aren't working. They need to be updated.

Ah, classic Pescado, changing the URL again. I wonder why he does that?

I wish I knew, but I have no clue. Sorry.

No problem on the help. It had come up recently in another thread, so the more people who know the better!
I can't change it, sorry. Not a mod. You can though if you edit your first post, I believe.
