Hello Simmers!

just letting everyone know that we have taken CTO down for maintenance and to work out our problems. We are aware that there is a warning page instead of the usual maintenance page in place.

We will let everyone know when we are back up and running smile

Hi everyone! I am here to share an update from Joan on the facebook group from this morning:

In case anyone is interested, here is an update on the status of the CTO Sims website.
We are making real progress on getting the site back up and running. The most exciting news is that John has the email system working! So as soon as we are back up, everything that relies on email (such as registration and forum notifications) will work the way it should.
You are still seeing the malware warning when you try to go to the website. That is because Google and other entities that monitor websites are still working from old information. We will not request that they re-scan our site until we are finished working on it. I can assure you that there is no malware at ctosims dot com now.
Naturally, we are also working on finding ways to prevent hacking in the future. A site can never be 100% safe, but if someone has targeted our site, chances are they will target it again, and we will be ready for them.
Thank you for your patience while we bring CTO back better and stronger than ever!

Did CTO ever come back from the last time? Is this another closing or is the forum open yet?
I have been away for a while.

Hi Nana,
CTO is still down but we are promised it will return soon. Let's hope so. In the meantime you can download all the Christmas Advent gifts from CTO at http://ctosimsxmas2016.weebly.com/

There are some very nice gifts there.
Liz

Hi everybody!
So is there any information about CTO, any news? I couldn't find anything at SWARM, N99, TerraLuna or here, at SO and I don't have access to the CTO group at FB any more (and have no idea why, I was never going to leave it). Last year we had some updates from Joan at least... Not very regular and not very encouraging sometimes, but better than nothing. They were posted at SWARM and here. And now everything looks like nobody remembers about CTO at all and nobody needs CTO at all. I'm really puzzled about it. Well, we now have TerraLuna and there are also other forums to talk, post updates and WCIFs and everything, but what about the files? Tons of files from the dead sites that were at CTO. Does it all mean they will never be available for the sims players again?

Hi Dukasha!

There haven't been any updates for a while. It seems they're having trouble fixing all the problems - and don't have much time to work on it.

In the meantime, there's a wonderful new forum where a lot of the cto members are hanging out - come on over!

Hi bogies. Glad to see you here also. smile
Yes, I'm registered at TerraLuna, thanks. It's always good to have a place to hang out, but still all the CTO files from the dead sites are not available anywhere else, do they? I like the other Sims1 forums too and I'm glad they do exist, but I want CTO to return also. Or at least to have any news.
