When did Realsim start using 3rd party download sites for SHIII content? Paying for a membership to download free content is a oxymoron. Id rather just wait for an official expansion to come out.

I don't know about paying for membership, but I have noticed just now , I received this message trying to get into Download Central :

Connection failed: Access denied for user: 'db115287_1@localhost' (Using password: YES)

I don't think terrapin is that stupid to charge membership, he would loose all his users. I'm sure he knows that. After all the hard work fixing UBRS up , that would be more devastating than the "hack" problem , then all those pain staking hours of blood and sweat down the drain.

Terrapin cares for his users, he's always been nice to me, and helpful at Subsim also. I don't think he's willing to make enemies with anyone.

I'm sure he's just doing some kind of maintenance right now or something.

Here is his latest Site Change Log. Last entry was Sept. 28th. Look at Sept. 15th entry.

Hi,

just got aware of the problem one of UBRS's databases has. I'll fix it ASAP.
