I was reminded, during the last few posts, that I haven't thanked SO recently. So....

As the CTO drama continues, I again thank SO for their indulgence.

In the meantime, please, please direct your attention to the Swarm thread to add any further comments or ideas.

I am not an authority figure - I only ask this out of courtesy to SO - because our prolific input adds to overloading their bandwith limits every month.

And those of you who are talented, it might be nice to send SO members a gift object (under "Show and Tell") in thanks for their generosity...

XXOO

Time for some good news, I suppose. Here's the latest post from Joan on FB today - and I can assure you, we ARE on track:


"We've made great progress today! The Files section is back up and running, though uploads are not possible at the moment. We're working on that. We are on track to be open Sunday!"

biggrin

Just a few hours, then CTO will open it's doors again!

Here are the brandnew news from Joan on FB about 30 minutes ago:

"The site will be open later today! Be sure to read the top article on the home page when you go to the website. It will contain information about what is and is not working.

I am going into the hospital in the morning, and will be unable to be on the internet for about a week. Michael, Mary, Gabriele, and John are here to help you with anything you need. After the site is open, you can send one of them a private message, or post your question in this Facebook group.

Best wishes to all of you, and I will be back online in about a week! Wish me luck with my TWO major surgeries, Monday and Wednesday."

To be prepared, I copied parts of the top article here for you, so that you know what will work and wat will not:

Currently the forum and forum attachments work, but the post preview does not.

The PM system and PM attachments work, the files are available for download, but the file search is not functioning, and site and forum searches are working.

Our email system, however, is still not working, so that unfortunately means that members will not get emails notifying them of any posts for threads that they have subscribed to.

Also, we will not be able to accept new members until the email is fixed, we are very sorry for this inconvienence and have been trying hard to fix this problem for the last few days.

If you know of anyone who is trying to join please tell them that we are working on it and will have it fixed as soon as possible, it is out first priority, and we appreciate their patience.

The FAQs are not posted, we are writing up new ones and will have those posted soon.

The chat is not currently installed.

There will be no new file uploading permitted until we work out some issues with MySQL settings on the server. We will let you know as soon as the uploading ban is removed.

There is a thread for members to post any questions or report any problems they notice with the site on the sitehelp board. You will find the direct link to it on the front page.

Hoping to see you soon at our new old home :).

A Great Big THANK YOU to all of those who contributed to make this change possible! We couldn't have done it without you. Your help and support is greatly appreciated.

Hugs from your CTO-team,

simbeule;)

Hi, everyone - I have one more thing to add to Joan's list of changes to the "new" CTO website. In the Files section, Sims1 file categories are now listed in alphabetical order, which means that "CTO Member Creations" is no longer at the top of the list, separate from the other Sims1 websites, but is now part of the entire file list categories (you can find it between "Country Girl Designs" and "Cybersims")

All the Contest prizes, fundraiser gifts, donations to CTO, etc. are in this category. Everything is in place, and all 40,000+ files will be ready for you to view and download

cool

This is wonderful news. Just checked out CTO and it's up and operating. Can't download files yet but we can look and post messages.

To Joan, good luck with your surgeries. Hope they go well and you have a speedy and pain free recovery.
