neither, our account’s been deactivated and that’s all the information i have. i contacted box support but they haven’t gotten back to me yet. i’ll let you guys know when i know, sorry.
update: OK, we can’t track attempts to contact box.com staff because it won’t allow us to log in at all but we think we might know what the problem is. Late last year, Azaya’s bank card was stolen and though we thought we had updated all billing related things attached to it, we must’ve forgotten about box.com. So come end of the year they go to charge us $80 and it says the card is no good so they kill our account.
Additionally, thanks to my stupid ass being a medical nightmare in general but especially as of late, we don’t actually have $80 readily on hand, so even if we do get in contact with box.com, they will likely not reinstate our account. Not unless we can pay the full year’s cost up front, assuming they didn’t delete our files outright.
It’ll probably be about a month before we have $80 not earmarked for med bills, so there isn’t much we can do until then. I’m going to call them tomorrow and try to at least confirm the files haven’t been deleted.
If there’s something you really need immediately, you’d probably have more luck posting on wcif_sims or similar because Azaya and I rarely keep full sets of our stuff and the external on which we had everything stored bit the dust in a major way recently. If you want to help out, there is a donate button at the bottom of this page. No pressure, just putting it out there. And if it turns out box.com deleted our files, we’ll refund you.
So yeah, that is the unfortunate state of things. We will let you know if anything changes, though!
jfdkdjfkhgf you don’t sound stupid at all omg. and thank you!! that is rly nice of you to say. i’m super flattered that you like my stuff! :D
but yeah idk! in general i don’t share a lot cuz most stuff that i do make anymore is totally unusable outside my own game (99% of the time it’s just some nitpicky tiny edit of existing cc that no one else would want like wow pooklet you changed the hue of that by like +4 in photoshop and then imported it right back into the same package file, you star you) but if i think it’s something useful or it’s stood the test of time in my game then i don’t see any reason not to share stuff.
i’m just not hardcore enough to like intentionally aim to share stuff? if that makes sense? cuz then it’s this whole stressful process of quality control and trying to make everything useful to other ppl and when confronted with stress my primary defense mechanism is to take a nap.
shared a thing on gos for the monthly theme!! am super excited for this theme guys omg
yeaaah, azaya and i are gonna be all over this theme, no doubt.
Oh yeah I def love it! Bosie, Belly and Bluebottle were/are major decorating inspirations for me. It was just a totally obvious attempted imitation when I did it back then, lol.
We’re my favorite love story, too, anon! (A close second is the love story that we wrote together that made us realize that we wanted all the same things out of a relationship. We spent so much time talking about love and then fell right in it and that is just the absolute coolest thing to me.) I’m so lucky I get to be married to my best friend in the whole world. I really hope we live happily ever after, too.
try-hard gos aesthetic from way back in the day.
but i’m still proud of that lawn and those tire tracks. that was all individually placed tiny clumps of grass and it slaughtered my frame rate.
Yr a sweetie, anon. Thank you for the well-wishes!
Oh heck, the box is down? Well, that was inevitable but I didn’t expect it to happen so soon. Uh, give me a little bit and I’ll try to get everything into a dropbox account or something! I’m a pretty woozy and useless atm but I promise that’ll be my weekend project.
Also no, I didn’t submit any secrets! I haven’t made any secrets in like four years, I’m too lazy. But yeah I still see ppl using my stuff and def get excited. But even if they didn’t I wouldn’t be upset cuz that generally means they’re using better CC that I can also covet, lol. But I hope secret maker feels better all the same. I’m sure their stuff is gr8 and ppl do use it! It’s impossible to see every blog/website so maybe they’re just not looking in the right places idk.
anyway i will make a post when the old files are stored … wherever the hell they end up.
edit: ok so i cannot get to the files at all and my name isn’t on the billing account, it’s all w/ azaya so i don’t think i can contact support myself. but shes dealing w/ some really intense family stuff rn. so if anyone has any of the files readily avaiilable i’ll take them in the interim but yeah it may be a while before stuff is back in order, sorry
