Hello everyone,

Just wanted to let you guys know that the MEGA account got suspended a few days ago. (Yes, really)
I'll update all links as soon as possible.

If you come across any links that are not working, feel free to post the links to the topics here, and I'll try to update them as soon as possible.

It may be slightly off-topic, but still related: I noticed that when you access the page of the TS4 Ultimate fix as a GUEST, the links are not clickable and only show up as normal text.

After some looking around, it appears that ALL links that are "masked" behind regular text, are somehow blocked. For instance, when I write "Get the download HERE", and put a link on the word "here", then this link does not show up for guests. However, if you just post a full URL, then the link shows up, even for guests.

http://games4theworld.forumotion.com/t20432-how-to-merge-package-files


Example: right at the beginning of the post, I put a link to the TSR-site, on the word "TSR". So people would need to click on TSR, in order to be linked to the site. But that link doesn't show up for guests; it only does for users that are logged in.

I'm not sure, but that could be some sort of update from Forumotion, maybe out of "safety"-concerns ?

WhatDidUJustCallMe?



//EDIT

Another example: try clicking on the links in my forum signature, as a GUEST. That's the same issue.

Hi,

There's an option for that in the Admin panel (Which I accidentally activated for one specific forum a long time ago), but it's not active at the moment, and no one touched it.
So I guess another Forumotion issue; will contact them.

Alright, the issue with missing links seems to be resolved now. Very Happy  As for the rest, I think the two most important things that need to be fixed are the TS4 Ultimate fix-page, and the TS3 Ultimate fix-post:

http://games4theworld.forumotion.com/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems


I'm surprised that my MEGA account (which holds most of the current TS3 Exchange links and a bunch of TS3 store items too) is still up.

I don't think the TS downloads were the issue, as I got several Takedown Notice e-mails, but never noticed any TS stuff missing.
They only provided the link to the files that got removed, which is useless as hell, because I can't actually see which file got removed. (Since the file got removed and the link doesn't work any more... - talking about logic)

Fortunately most of the links have Mirrors too, even the "Neighbourhoods" downloads on the Download Server.

OK, I don't know (much) about the policies of these filehosters, but I thought that if there is just one "questionable" (= copyright-protected) download, and they can prove it, then they'll take down the whole account  Question

Also: why else would that account get suspended then, if not for the Sims-related stuff ? "Account inactivity" ? I doubt it. "Exceeding the bandwidth" ? Not sure if that is an issue with MEGA (it is on some other filehosters though).

I'm sure that someone  - either EA or one of their lackeys - filed a complaint to MEGA, hence the account was taken down.

It was because of several Take-Down Notices over time, not all at once.
The reason I said that no TS stuff was missing, is because also some other non-TS stuff was being hosted on that account. (Like THIS, for example)

But no worries, I'll have most of the important links fixed soon.
It's taking a bit more time, because I'm still putting back backups on my main PC, after I reinstalled Windows a few days ago. I'll then also start making a backup of the MEGA account, like I used to do with the old MediaFire account, because now I don't have any of the old Ultimate Fixes any more. (Not that they are important anyway, people only request an old version like once a year)

Sorry to bother you all, but if you are visiting the site as a guest, those download links aren't clickable - again. What is wrong with this Forumotion thing... Question

Fixed again.
I have no idea, it seems like the option keeps resetting itself.
Maybe they are performing maintenance? I doubt it though, last message I got about maintenance was somewhere on the 9th of July.
