Title: ATTENTION all members !!
Post by: dutchieblue on October 28, 2016, 11:45:47 PM
Simon and several others including myself would like to make Crowstown as great and active again as it once was.However we can not do this without your help.The idea is to get a tracker if possible, if not to see what other options there are like dropbox archive etc.
What we need is to know is who is willing to help out in whatever way they can.Also we need ideas, input.If you're still in contact with old members please inform them if you can.
Post away.

Fingers crossed. People can no longer see the site without being logged in ?

I don't think that is a wise idea. People want to watch as guests first before making an account. At least that was what I did for a long time.

I don't know how I could help, but if you need anything translated into or from Spanish… let me know.

Please check if you can see the site without a login... I agree wasn't that wise.

Tenzin i'm not sure what we need right now. I do know there is no point in getting a tracker if there is no activity. If we would be able to get that done we need people uploading downloading seeding. If it works i guess what we need the most is to get the word out let all the members know we are back in action.
For now i just would like to see how many people are interested in having a working tracker and get more activity here.

I would seed/ download, and could help in whatever way I could but I've got no tech skills

Hello All!

Some updates on where we are. I have started setting up a new server and am working hard on getting it ready to go. Right now I am working on getting as much data as possible migrated over so that we can keep all the old posts. The old torrents are probably gone which means if we want to reseed we'll just have to upload a new torrent file.

This isn't going be done over night so I do ask for your patience. We will get there but it will take a little bit of time and elbow grease.

Regards,

Travis (aka napper)

I know this may seem silly but would a little bit of cash help? I could probably put together $50? <shrug> Maybe it's not the smartliest of ideas, but it is an idea.

Simon i know you did everything you could as always.
I just would like to know is this a defenite no and the site remains the way it is now or are there still options of moving this to another site and/ or finding other ways of sharing music other than a tracker.
I asume money is not the problem if that was the case i'm sure several of us including myself would be willing to help out.

Hi Sandra,


Money was never an issue. We were so close but somehow someone dropped for personal reasons so I just can't do this by myself as I am not tech. So basically until further notice this will stay as it is now.

What a shame after all that work.I hope some tech person who does have the time will come forward.

Boo. Wish I could help on the tech end but it's not really my forte.

If there is a willingness to contribute money, I think a shared file host like Google, Dropbox, or Amazon would pretty much solve all the problems here, and probably for only $10 or $20/mo, which is probably do-able for the community to pitch in collectively on. Something worth seriously considering since, I'll tell you, trying to put together a torrent tracker is just always going to run into technical headaches. Whereas these general file hosting services are designed for ease of use. It means virtually anyone can admin the site, whereas with a tracker you'll always be limited by requiring free time from someone tech-skilled.

I would commit to donating money each month or yearly if that's easier.

Oshyan, the best value I've found for cloud sharing is sync.com. It's a flat $98/per year for 2TB of space. Just wanted to share that number figure, which I think as a one-time-per-year payment would be pretty simple.

I am a man of action.  I will signup and pay for Sync.

I will then give access upload to those that want to contribute. PM me here or email me through the member's list.

Thanks!

P.S. There are terms in Sync about them deleting/revoking accounts when they receive a copyright infringement notice.  I hope that it doesn't come to that.

---- Edit ----

I created the Share on SYNC.  I haven't subbed yet, but once we hit the FREE storage limit, I will.  If you use my referral code, we get 1GB of free storage

https://www.sync.com/?_sync_refer=5e42ab9f0

So far, cmstewart and cmigs have reached out to me and I've given them the ability to edit the share.  We want to try and follow Simon's excel database.  We prefer to upload only lossless, if available.

If you have a lot you want to share/upload, let me know and I'll add you to the share.

Eventually though, we may need to curtail/limit the amount of people who can contribute to the share so that (1) it doesn't get unorganized, (2) people don't upload copyright material (e.g. CCLive stuff, or commercial releases), (3) people do not upload poor audio quality versions of stuff (if better quality stuff exists).

Thanks for helping me get this archive up and running.

Oshyan... if you have digital contributions for the archive.  Please let me know.
If you can upload them, I'll give you permissions to do so.

I want to archive CC's legacy for future generations to enjoy!
