arathea, I believe you could try and just report any of the other posts in a thread when you find you can't report the actual upload post itself. All we actually need to know is which thread an upload belongs to (and the post number in case of multi-post uploads, but those are relatively rare).
I just would like to note that I reported using they way told to
Click on the Overview tab, and find the link that says "Report if this post breaks site rules" Note: This is the ONLY time which we will allow you to use reporting to report missing files. Normally it's not allowed.
But I recieved an email back saying its not a good usage of the reporting feature here on mts2. All I was doing was trying to help and thinking I was doing right as Delphy did state to use that feature. It just seems to me quite often we are dammed if we do and dammed if we don't. Maybe it still helped though as the download looks fixed now!
Attention! This thread may have one or more missing files, as per the recent fileserver crash. See here for the details. Want to help? See here for details.
What part of the big banner above the download did you not understand? How can we clarify this for you? Do you have the missing file? If so, could you please attach it using the prescribed method Delphy laid out?
I'm worried that my latest Salvation Army donation will result in homeless people looking like sluts from the 90s.
I had two threads I recently updated to add some files, and as such, I updated the "ALL" .rars that were in my threads. The new files needed fixing, and the "ALL" .rars were set back to before I updated. So, of course I needed to fix those as well.
When I tried to overwrite the "ALL" .rars, I got an error the first time, and the second time it went through, but it was set at the bottom of the list like a new upload would be, and my download count was erased. This is not a problem for me, I don't mind. Just thought the previous update of the .rars should be noted to maybe be problematic.
ekrubynaffit, you received that message not by default - but because you hadn't attached any files to the thread. We know what's missing, there's a list linked in the status thread. What we need are replacement files, as stated in Delphy's instructions.
