I'm sorry, I wasn't available today. I hope I can squeeze in some time tomorrow to upload it. That is, if Spoon or Deep hasn't done it by then. Probably not.

My connection is pretty slow today. I can usually just about upload a map or something but a mod takes too long

Sigh.

/me wonders how many people would've downloaded it if the links were up

/me also wonders how many people will notice it when the links finally get fixed :/

To be honest, it'd be better if the mod was withdrawed from the filesystem for now until the links get fixed. Lots of people will notice and try to download the mod now, for nothing, and they might not look for it twice, or notice that it gets fixed. And our mod needs every frickin' download it can get.

Why don't you let a reliable person like me or TwL handle the filesystem? We could've got the links up and working within a single day without any hassle.

I guess that's it for a launch party game. :/ Sheesh.

Jeez, sorry for whining.

Just a bit frustrating to see it still bite the dust after all the hard work we've done on it. And the wait. Oh man, the wait...and the delays.

I dunno, maybe it's the filesystem or something because everything else I've uploaded (except your mod and TwL's S.Bomb thing) have worked fine and people were able to download them

Hey, you never know though. While we're trying to fix the d/l some people may have sense and PM you about an alternate d/l link instead of saying it's crap because they can't download it and giving it a '1'

I have a suggestion for the filesystem ratings thing though
  • The ability to rate a file '0'. This will not affect ratings and is a good way to ask questions and authors can answer them. No more authors giving their own files a rating of '10'
  • Staff members, moderators, tribunes, etc. should be able to edit a persons comments. But only if, for example, that person rates the file unfairly (rating the file low because they can't get it to work)

Default Re: Serious File System

Maybe there could be an option to just stick a download link in there without having to actually upload the file to the filesystem?

So it'd just be a link to the mod's download page on Filefront. No fuss, no worries. The filesystem managers would just check that the link and the file work.

This would effectively make the whole process 50% easier and faster, with no additional problems caused. The only downside is that the user himself would have to moderate and make sure that the link stays up.

And yes, fix the file already.

I think there is an option in the file page creation form to provide a link if it's already uploaded on a specific site (only one site though)

I'm not sure if it's only when editing a file page or when creating a new one though

Thanks Discy. Could somebody please remove the two PlanetMirror links too? They don't work so I don't see why they should be kept there...oh and edit the description or post a comment and say that the download links have been fixed please.

EDIT: A front page update would be nice too, it's a bit outdated.

Why's that? Or better yet, why post then? If the interest for SS2 mods is this low, I don't see why we should bother with Serious Pacifist...

So, one person not being interested in your mod means that nobody's interested in any mods at all then. Wha? How'd you figure that one out?

I didn't say that. I just don't see why he'd post just to announce that he isn't going to download it without giving any reason.

And since he's in our Pacifist "team", I thought he'd like to check it out and give us some support. Just saying...

Then you might as well not have posted. Sounds kinda rude to me: "Well congratulations on your mod. But I'm not downloading it, because I don't actually care."

But then again, it could be just me.

Was it intended as a joke? I mean, the smiley kinda indicated that but still. Maybe it was one of those jokes that just wasn't necessary

Short version: No.

Long version: No. There's a lot of files with which the FilePlanet links don't work, so if we remove yours we have to do it for others as well, which is just too much work.

Look at it like this: anyone with a minimum of brain cells will try all download mirrors if one doesn't work. If they don't, they probably are too stupid to get the mod working anyhow.
