Site Will Be Down Most of 1/1/12!
« on: December 31, 2011, 08:55:27 AM »
The forum and downloads will be unavailable for most of the day tomorrow while we transfer the site from my control to the new team's control. Of course that's all relative, depending on where in the world you happen to be.

I will be taking the site down to start the backup for the transfer at around 6-7am PST (GMT-8) tomorrow.

It will take at least several hours, but almost certainly longer to get everything moved and running on the new server and to get the DNS pointed to the new place. Once the forum is up, it will probably take additional time to get the downloads working again since I have them setup in a way that doesn't directly transfer, so most of the download links are going to be broken at first.

Please be patient while the new team settles in and gets everything fixed and setup the way they want it.

Happy New Year and Good Luck!

Double ditto & double thanks for helping us out with everything! Without your willingness to indulge our little motley crew (D_A, ZZ, BO, myself & miros1- who has so awesomely agreed to help us with the techie stuff) we would have had a much tougher time undertaking this crazy project.


Just wanted to say one last time how much I've enjoyed (& will continue to enjoy) your mods & hope you have a most excellent upcoming year!

Thank you for all your great mods and for running this site. It is not something I would want to do and so I can understand that you don't want to continue, just as I understand the ISZ. Nevertheless I am sad. I've been trying internally to put my feelings into words since christmas, I guess I feel a bit like a "leftover". I've been playing sims games for more than 10 years now and while there are a lot of players around, I am not sure how many of them continued to keep an interest for such a long time. It is still my favourite playground and even if I get quiet occasionally, sharing it with others was always part of the game.

Anyway, good luck and hopefully not much work with moving the site. Have a good new year!

I have been trying to find the words and after all of this time I still can't find much more than Thank You, for giving me  a game that still peaks my interest after all these years. TJ I found you on various simmers and have followed you around the net.You and a handful of others have made my game what it is today .I am going to miss you here.  :diva: Best of luck in all you choose to do and I hope you have a very happy and prosperous New Year.   :thumb:

I can't thank you enough for these mods & what you've done for TS2, even the loss of one or two hacks would seriously disturb my playing style, I can not live without these mods anymore than I could without being able to play the game itself.

You've made so many things better & easier in the game, & I hope whatever you decide to do next will be just as amazing as your endevors here in our community.

Thank you once again, as well as deciding to let our friends here keep this forum & the downloads running, & have a Happy New Year!! <3 ^_^
