Well, I'm not much help. My uploads appear to be fine. I had just cleared out my CC folder and started redownloading everything, so I don't have much. I did donate the tiny amount I could afford to. I figure that while losing a bunch of files sucks, and having everyone pitch in to get them all back up, it also probably ended up costing a lot of money...

I am not taking requests at this time. I have just started graduate school and I cannot be sure how much spare time I am going to have. You can PM me with a request if you want, but I cannot guarantee that I will do it (or that I will even see the message right away).

Thanks for your hard work and dedication. Wish I could help, but I never save the original zip files because of low disk space. The one question I have is Sexy Sims going to be updated as well and if so, is there any estimate of at least how long that will be.
Thanks again.

I've gone out in search of myself.
If I should return before I get back,
please keep me here.

Thanks for the list. It helped a lot. It looks like a lot of my uploaded files in the HighRollers development thread got zapped but that's ok - they weren't release versions. The final files that were uploaded to skuld all seem to be intact so the theme doesn't seem to be damaged as far as I can tell anyway.

Sorry about you losing almost everthing. Thanks for getting MTS back up and running and all your hard work.
I will check through some of my older download cds and see what I have. I sure hope I have something you need. Right now I can't get to the site that has the list, it says ie can't connect right now.
I love this place and you are really a trooper for getting back some of what you lost. Most people would have just thrown in the towel. I salute you, Delphy.

LynnMar - Hehe, I wouldn't call it "almost everything" - I think the site-wide announcement would have head a LOT more profanity if that were the case. It is a sizeable chunk but it was actually more like 5.63%, which really isn't all that much.

I've recovered three of my files! Yay! (Thanks Mootilda! )

Well, five more to go! :D

This allows me to see into the minds of people! That's right, I can actually see what they're thinking!
So long as what they're thinking is exactly what I think they're thinking.

iamwolfspawn, no known virus or attack that I know of results in the kind of corruption and general filesystem damage that I am seeing - therefore I do NOT think it was anything malicious - it's a simple failure of the RAID array that then resulted in the drives being reverted back to a point in time that they where "clean" (probably automatically via journal recovery).

You guys have done great managing the site, and I have been logging in since the whole fiasco happened, checking in on your progress with the fixes. I will definitely check my downloads folder for anything that might be missing *squeaks* Good luck guys!

Most likely you're getting a 503 error, which means the server is overstressed. If not, we'd need more information than "it's not working".

What I lack in decorum, I make up for with an absence of tact.

I'm currently helping LyricLee recover Exnem's Sims' lost files (caused by a hacker), but once that's done, I'll see what I've got that can help. Good luck!

Sexysims2 downloads are up again now. I just downloaded the pole.

Just joking, eventually I'll see if I can help somehow.

I cannot take requests now.

DO NOT UPLOAD MY CC ON PAY SITES, THANKS

I have about 900 zip files from mts on my pc. Here is how I'm going through it. If you have excel this may help. I saved the web page of the missing files link from here to my documents. Then opened it, select all, and copied and pasted the list into excel. I then am going down the list of zips I have and doing a find in excel for the number. But wow you have a lot more than we have. As I find them and upload them I fill color the cells from that line so I know I have done it, and fill color the ones I know I don't have with a different color... Eventually the list of missing files will all have fill color and all done... Hope that helps.

I don't create or recolor and my daughter and I have just began downloading custom content for our game a couple of months ago. I figure this is the least I could do for all the wonderful free downloads of custom content we got for our game from here . BTW I have found and uploaded 4 files I had and have only just begun going down the list. Unfortunately I go back to work tomorrow so I don't know how far I will get.
