I wonder what is happening at effiles!

I submitted the files twice and still they are not there, the site looks the same and ya, tell me it's the network... Interesting is that hl2 files can manage to add new files and new potds, so I am of course now wondering why it don't work here!

I would like to have a statement of an effiles admin what's going on and why can others manage teh site but you can't ? Soudn't the site work as far as the hl2 site works ? I wounder if IKS did refer to something like that (if you don't understand what i mean by this ignore it).

About my files, they are all avilable at moddb.com, and they will be avilable here when effiles "works" again, if that will be within the next 6 month.

Hey. There are ongoing issues with all of the network sites. These issues include login problems, Voting and in certain cases files. We are not ignoring these issues or the concerns of our members and I did post a network wide item about these issues. Files can be added but they are taking a while to resolve to the download and potd again can be added but the voting is not working correctly. The site staff may feel that it is better to wait until these issues are fixed before adding new content to ensure that they are presented in the proper way. That being the case then they should have probably emailed you to inform you that was there intention.

IKS has left us as staff however there are staff on EF Files that should be posting files.

Looking in the queue for EF Files I can only see 2 files pending. Is this one yours ? A Gate Two Birds and the Beautiful Sky (1.31)

Thanks for the quick reply. Also, but i have submitted more files, and i know others also submitted files which are not there.

The staff told us that: Elite Force 2, Elite Force 2 Downloads - Bringing the warp core back online...

I resubmitted all files after I did read the news, I did read in a comment that files stay 7 days on ftp, I guess some of them have hit the time-line.

Server 2 Server files are not effected by the 7 day limit so your file should be fine. I will contact the staff there and get this sorted out for you. I would add the file myself but I do not have this game and all files need to be tested.

Well when the current major Filefront "refit" started, all the files you submitted, Chriss had to be removed because they were throwing up 404 errors on download. IKS (just before he left) and my other admin Jamesamey had been validating them, and we didn't notice the error problem until it was too late. I did message you to ask for you to resubmit them for when everything is up and running again, but I don't see any files from you in our current queue. If you have uploaded them, they arn't showing up, and thats probably a symptom of our current troubles. I had planned to wait until it was all sorted before posting the new files, although I've validated a couple of small tutorials to "test the waters" so to speak. Maybe try and re-upload your files. =]

@Luke I have been submitting them after i recived your e-mail, i think i did wait one or two days to make sure the system is fully back then. I would wish you would have told us about teh on going issues.

@goody10 I can resubmit them, that is no problem, but only when I have the grantee that there is taken care of the files in time. But this is not just about my files others also submitted files which are gone now, I think they will resubmit it as I do.

I understand about the testing procedure, I also offered my help at that a while ago, because I felt that I can give the game (stef2) much more attention in any case as it has received, IKS did a very good job, I remember just one more person taking almost that much care about the game as IKS and that was Rebel. What I'm trying to say is that the game has a sad history but that don't mean it has to be handled like a strange ugly crap thing.

I am sorry to hear that your file submission process has not been smooth. If anything like this happens again, send an e-mail to [email]network@filefront.com[/email] and we will take care of it as soon as possible. The user is our number one concern, and we want to make it as easy as possible to submit your files and have them up quickly.

We don't handle the second Elite Force game like that, and although EF1 is clearly more popular in terms of raw players and content, I see no reason EF2 should get less attention - for example, we ran an "EF2 week" a few months back, and that went quite well. Got a few people playing, if only for a short time. On the other hand, we are rather limited to what users upload and send in. I'm always happy to validate files and news items about upcoming tournaments for EF2 and so forth, but we get very few, and there are only so many articles about the game I can write. Please do re-upload your files if you get a chance, though, and when this Filefront buisness is sorted, we'll process them. Thanks. :)

The file is in the EF 2 files queue already. It is the server 2 server file so there is no need to reupload the file. There is also no need to wait as the files are working again although they may take a little while to resolve to the download page.
