Default Dollsters-Official Staff Owned Site/Forum - 11-20-2009, 08:37 PM

Okay, for anyone who has not been online this evening, the site has been down for exactly 2 and 1/2 hours. We are requesting all members join the rescue board now. We know we aren't ready, but we can't risk a shut down without having everyone prepared and have discovered that the webhost is due to expire next year.

So, join! I am changing validation settings now, so everyone just needs to have a working email. Massive help will be needed for copying and the such in the event we go down again. I hate to rush this since we are still under construction, but I'd feel better if everyone was there rather than not!
Dollsters

JOIN! We will give instructions there for how to help. Copying to all relevant boards where attention is immediately needed.

If this site is shutting down then how do we stop it?
Like how would we join the rescue board to help not let it shut down.

The Rescue Board is in place so that if/when the site does shuts down everyone has a place to go to. It'll be a safe haven for all TDP members to coordinate on what to do next or to simply just keep in touch with all of your friends.

If this site closed down there will be nearly nothing we or anyone but Jessica and her team can do about it. The only thing we can hope to achieve is to lessen our losses. And a huge way to achieve that is to not lose contact even if this site ceases to exist.

It was worded perfectly by someone, I cant remember who (Sorry person, hectic day ya know, lol!):

A site can change it's URL or be deleted, but you can never delete the frienships made and the lasting bonds that were created. Dollsters will be there to make sure that friendships last and bonds stay together.


Please have a look at my Shop!
Help a girl out, keep me in mind, and share link with your friends and parents!

Is this just the forum or both the main site and the forum?

It's the whole site. Since the forums are hosted on the main TDP server, if there's a site shutdown then the forums will go too.

The fact that there have been no updates for so long; the site isn't being kept clean or monitored; and that helpdesk is still backed up are what makes us think that Support will eventually close the site down. You can see why we're worried, so if you want to keep in touch with everyone and keep posting on a TDP like site, then join Dollsters right away. We're not finished with the board yet, but we plan to have all the updates we wanted for TDP installed.

Oh ok. NOOOOOOO!
Don't worry if you don't know the answer to this question.
If we have premium do you think it will be automatically cancelled or do we have to cancel it?

I just wanted to remind everyone about moving. Our grand opening has been pushed back due to come computer issues on my end, which interfered with my time to code. I promise we are getting back on track. There are some things being changed and also some new announcements which I think you will all enjoy!

Changes...

-Site roleplay is now being separated into a new board with subforums, more on this when it is better organized.
-Updating the Contestants club page with their new theme!
-Writers club is being added soon! More information on clubs can be found in joinable groups or in the clubs forum.
-All coding is now done!
-Our banner is going to be unveiled very soon! Keep an eye out for our main site characters!

New...
-Dollmaker is underway! Please submit props if you want to!
-Website is currently under construction. Soon, we will have our own webpage!
-Our first cross-forums event(happening here and on Dollsters) will be occuring next month!
-Finally, the staff shop will soon open offering changes to new usernames, titles, etc!

Finally, please take note of our blogs feature, which can be found through your profiles/controls and also make sure you log into our money system(AIO Links), through which you earn money for posting on the forums. Keep an eye out for this month's newsletter!

That's strange? Did you follow the email instructions because I already validated you in the system. You need to do both.

I'm confused that you are having an issue since you are listed under the member group, not the validation one. The only real difference between the two groups is access to PMs, customizing your profile, and being able to create topics. Can you check if you can do those things now? Try creating a test topic, I'll delete it if it goes through without you getting in trouble.
