MTS2 was down for maintenance to rebuild the search indexes today. This should mean a reinstatement of the "Search in Thread" functionality. Apologies for the downtime, but re-indexing is needed for the next phase of MTS2.

This involves moving the forums and all sub-sites (sims2pack, mikeinside, meshtool) to the second server which is built and should be installed today. This will result in a couple of hours downtime as the DNS switches over, as well as any additional downtime needed for the changeover.

Let me say a big thank you to everybody who has contributed on the site, and we hope you enjoy the changes both now and in the future.

Regards,
Delphy

Delphy: I REALLY appreciate the effort you and the team are putting in to this. MTS2 is a great, great site. I think any wails of "Oh no! HOW LONG?!!!!" is just indicative of how popular MTS2 really is. Thanks anyway.

so once all the upgrading has been done, we wont be getting those annoying "page cannot be displayed" pages as often right?
I seem to get them quite often on this site...I glance at my dsl box and then back at the "page cannot be displayed" and I realize that MTS2 is just so popular that we all cant get in at the same time and then im forced to sit here and stare at my monitor and keep refreshing the page a million times til i get in...
omg i just realized im just as addicted to MTS2 as i am to the sims
ok...shutting up now and stepping away from keyboard slowly
please disregard everything above...im off my meds :D

I'm amazed at the people who say the new system is faster. I'm finding the exact opposite - everything takes about three times as long as before. While I also appreciate the enormous amount of work that goes into this fantastic site, I wonder if I'm the only one who finds things not improved.

One thing. Can't find the link to donate for the site.
That item should be prominent on the front page.

GGRRRR! Ok- everything seems to be fine now except that the forums are orded by latest post rather than latest thread, and when I try to change it, it still loads by post date. Is anyone else having this problem? Or am I the only one that cares? I love this site to much to give up! :D
