It is great to have the site up and running again,  What a relief!.  Looking for another site was not easy and mostly unsuccessful.  This is by far the best site for covers. and so glad it is back.

Hello Max - When I posted last week,something came over me and I thought something more was wrong. I won't pry but something was wrong with me a while back and it stopped me fast. That was 15 years ago and I'm still here for support. Again, thanks for such a wonderful site. You should be proud of what you have accomplished....Terry

Can the link that sends us to CDcovers.To be taken down? It reroutes to CDCovers.cc and that site is dead.  Just wastes time going there.  Owner has apparently abandoned it.  Not a big deal but just asking.

Damn - I feel like sh*t now! I cancelled my recurring membership because I thought that the site was finished! Don't worry tho'! I'll restart it as soon as my current period expires!

Welcome back I hope all is well with you. I love this site and was disappointed that I could not get covers. I remained patient and did not delete the site from my favorites.

If you check your profile, it does not state you are a member.
If you look at the post below yours, Normas, under the icon is the word Member.
Yours says Newbie!

Send a message to one of the mods when they're next on line, stating that Member is not showing up in your profile.

A link would be helpful, also what sort of problem.

A bit of explanation would be helpful

All,

Blame must be assigned to the faults that we've had and I'd like to take full responsibility. Although all has been resolved, I must explain to all what happened and why it took long to fix. We've had a rocky start to the New Year but we have time to make up.

 

I would also like to apologize to those that believed that it's our intention to close the site.

 

I'll die and FreeCovers will still move on.

 

Staff,

I humbly thank you for sticking through and helping to calm the members, and rectify issues that you could have, in my absence.

 

Gold Members + Elites,

Of all, I owe you the most. You have been the force that keeps the servers online and a lot of you contribute beyond that to our community. To you, I extend my deepest apologies.

 

Uploaders,

It is my hope that you didn't run out of space storing all those covers yet to be uploaded. I also hope that we can reignite your passion for sharing the covers that you love.

 

What happened?

In short, software upgrades broke existing code and this led to the upload section being down.

 

Why were covers broken?

Whenever a cover is temporarily inaccessible, it gets marked as broken. This could be from a locked drive or a bad sync between servers.

 

Why weren't these issues solved earlier?

This has much to do with me. From the start of the year, personal life swallowed me and left me with little to no time for online. That has been resolved and I'm here.

 

What now?

Now, I have hundreds of messages to respond to and dozens of issues to resolve. It may take me a week to get to everyone but the least that I can do is respond personally to all.

 

With love and respect,

Max.

Thanks Max, ignore my messages to you please! I was angry when I sent them - that's if there is more than one! And thank you for explaining why freecovers.net has taken so long to be fully operational again!

I do not know about every one else but I cannot download uncompressed covers though I have a lifetime membership.

Is anyone else having the same issue as me even though you say its fixed. It directs me to a page to purchase a gold membership

in order to download uncompressed cover but like I said I have a lifetime membership.

In view of all the site problems recently, your payment might not have gone thru yet. You are still listed as a Newbie Not Member.

 

Therefore, the 10 posts minumim would apply to you at the moment before you can download.

 

Send a msge to a moderator as soon as you see one come on line, which you will see at the bottom of the community index (home page)

Tricky1ricky thanks for answering my post as you are right I am a newbie and this is my first post anywhere on the net period

but to understand your comment does that mean I cannot download uncompressed covers till I post 10 posts even though I paid

for lifetime membership and it says I have lifetime membership. Thank You again

Afraid so until one of the mods or maybe admin sorts it out for you.

The system still thinks you are a newbie at the moment ....because they're trying to sort out about 5 months worth of problems because the site owner had serious personal problems and couldn't spend time here. He's back and sorting, hopefully, everything out! ....

Sorry

 

Go and say hello to anybody newly registered etc - that will put your posts up :thumbup:
