The site Openxcom.com still has that Error 523 host is unreachable, usually if I try to go deeper into the site, such as to search for a particular mod.

Just gave it a shot - had to reupload the file, but it is working for now.

Do you live in a different universe than all the rest of us Joshua??

Your site was more offline than online in 2017... so your "monitoring" either doesn't work or doesn't exist.

Also, the downloads still don't work... since 2 years... I have reported this 3 times already in this thread, now I am reporting for the 4th time!!!
Example of not working download created today: http://www.openxcom.com/mod/test-4

If you haven't noticed, all (and I mean ALL) established modders already abandoned your site and are publishing their mods elsewhere.
Your reputation is already below absolute zero and still falling.

Please, if you don't want to shut this broken site down completely... at least stop feeding us bullshit.
Thank you.

Please scroll up users have reported the upload function is working. If you have an issue then please send us a message and we will look into it. You can easily verify that from the new uploads users have posted on the site. Otherwise this is unhelpful as we have been told the upload is now working and you have provided no information in the issue you are experiencing.

Joshua, where do I need to send you a message?

Isn't the message on this forum enough?
(Please scroll up, I have reported that the download function isn't working... many times.)

I gave you a link to a mod, which I uploaded a few days ago, which cannot be downloaded. What else do you need??
(You can easily verify this, I provided links to everything... several times already).

How can you say I have provided no information?? And that it is unhelpful.... are you fucking kidding me?
I provided all the information one can provide.... have you even read my post?

PS: I can reproduce this issue at will.... if you want I can spam your portal with a 100 non-downloadable mods

PS2: In case you are on a slow-ish side, let me repeat that once more in big letters:

DOWNLOADS DON'T WORK.... IT IS EASILY REPRODUCIBLE... EXAMPLES:

From April 2017: http://www.openxcom.com/mod/test-4
From November 2016: http://www.openxcom.com/mod/test789
From October 2016: http://www.openxcom.com/mod/test456
From August 2015: http://www.openxcom.com/mod/test123

Many of the mods download just fine, but others do not. I just went in and tested a few and the third one I tried (Vanilla Rebalanced) didn't work: http://www.openxcom.com/mod/vanilla-rebalanced

If you click "Download Mod" you get the message "THERE WAS AN ERROR The page you requested was not found. Please try again."

Also in all mods in the bottom comments section it reads, "COMMENTICS Sorry, there is a database problem. Please check back shortly. Thanks."

OpenXcom Modsite Portal: Bad Link Generation?
« Reply #115 on: April 11, 2017, 05:31:44 pm »
4/11/2017  File Won't download from Mod Site

http://www.openxcom.com/mod/xpiratez-enhancments 
I posted a collection of files here, and noticed that two were constantly at 0 downloads.  I looked these over, and removed one that has been deprecated.  The other: "Expanded VIPs" I deleted the existing file and uploaded a new version.  When I click on Download I get the following message:

THERE WAS AN ERROR
The page you requested was not found. Please try again.

[DISABLED: TEMPORARY PAGE]

This is the link that is returning the error:  http://www.openxcom.com/mod/xpiratez-enhancments/download/E/Y8Wwef

Could it be that the file download links that are generated are including some characters that are causing issues?  Note the forward slash : E"/"Y8Wwef .  I also noticed a "+" symbol in Meridian's latest example of buggy files.  (http://www.openxcom.com/mod/test-4/download/0z+equ0w)

If this is the problem I imagine that it should be possible to reduce the possible characters for link generation to alphanumeric.

Edit:  Subsequently, I re-uploaded the file until I got a link that works, and I deleted the previous version (unfortunately without thinking it would be good to keep it up for trouble-shooting.)

Droppin in only for a quick question, may we get a new category in the mods listing on the portal named (see shot attached) "total conversions" and put there TCs like Piratez? :)

Don't want to be rude but, the modsite is  disgrace.
I can't even upload a damned file, and also it fucks up all the mods published there so far
