Am i missing the point here? A mod has amended a layout with new roms yeah? Why can't said mod admit who did it and that should be end of it. Saying your gonna fold the site is a bit of a kick in the teeth for members who have supported the site via cash and not to mention the 100's of layouts that have been posted here to attract people here in the first place.
I can understand with your current situ that you can't be arsed with the hassle,it just seems any thread can turn in to a bitch fest for no reason,proberbly the reason i havent touched mfme since november.
Also i wish you all the best health wise.
Thank you Anthony, I do appreciate it. It’s members like you and other Layout creators who do still upload here, along with those who have supported the site, which keeps things going at this time. Nothing else. I have no love for any of it. I’ve never used MFME5+ and I doubt I ever will.
Yes it would be nice to get to the bottom of it though
So its all (slightly more) clear, only Administrators can access accounts but generally do not do so, unless there is a specific problem which a user has reported which can not be externally diagnosed.
Moderators and those with moderator rights cannot access accounts at all.
As well as the elected moderators there are (or in some cases used to be) a small number who can do limited moderation actions, this all dates from before my tenure as far as I can remember. These actions are very limited - they dont have access to the moderator forum for instance
Some with moderator rights can upload a layout and attach any username to it. Thats what happened here, it seems, however they unfortunately edited a layout and then re-uploaded it with the wrong username. Apparently they were uploading new ROMS, Im still trying to establish exactly why.
Edit: at this point, until I can properly get to the bottom of this, I have unapproved the file.
Just to reiterate and to reassure you BARXFAN, your account has not been accessed, hacked or compromised in any way.
As long as we know for certain that all of the layouts in that MFME5 folder are compatible, going forward, then yes I can simply change the name.
It does again raise the question of what to do about all of the sections with layouts for pre-MFME5 now that all of those versions have been withdrawn? I don't know if any or all of them have been converted or updated to work with the new versions.
If you feel we need some tutorials for V6 then please do feel free to create and upload them.
