Default Downloads now available to guests, and return of 'My Downloads'
Hi All,

Today I have re-enabled the ability for Guests to download files, as well as re-introducing a feature long time members here will recognise - My Downloads. Accessible from the User Links dropdown (next to your name in the top right), this page lists everything you have downloaded from the site, and shows if those items have been updated, in addition to whether or not you have thanked the item in question.

Feedback and comments are appreciated

That's great! Especially 'My Downloads' list, cause if you were making a project, and suddenly your game breaks, and you lose al your cc, you can come here and see what you have downloaded
Also, it's very nice for guests to be able to download from MTS

Sounds like more downloads and thanks for all--what's not to love about that? Thank you for all of the improvements to the site lately. The caution-yellow banner on the thanks percentages could be a more friendly color, though. I thought I did something wrong when I first saw it.

Ok I'll be the first newb, where is this My Downloads?
The only user tools menu I know of are under the drop down menu next to my login name, User Links - User Tools.

I must be looking in the wrong place as usual. :/

That's a fantastic idea, no more searching for CC to redownload! Plus more convenience in not having to remember my password to download stuff!

Wow, I don't even remember downloading some of these things. But it is nice to be able to find them again.

Just curious...is the limit the last 75 threads? Or is that just how many the system has records for my downloads?

I don't mind if you call me "MSD" or something for short.
Perhaps someday I'll have leisure time back...

I feel really bad that I've only thanked 4% of my 316 downloads 0.0

*bops Robodl95 on the head*

I usually only thank a download after I've tested it in game, so the My Downloads feature had been a useful reminder back in the day. Now that you've built that function in, it is an awesome head bop reminder. Thanks, Delphy, for making it easier for me to say thank you.

Fantastic addition! - Helps member keep track of their downloads and reminds them to say thanks if they overlooked someone. Love it! I try to always leave a comment or hit the thank you button when downloading. I may occassionally miss an opportunity to show my appreciation of the modder's creation (like in the midst of a download feeding frenzy 1 or 2 could slip by) so having the download list indicate when that happens is really nice. I'm very consious of thanking people for sharing their work (I think it piggish not to) so when I saw my list I was shocked at how many were marked as not thanked. I know I've left thanks on many of these downloads marked as unthanked and in some instances even left comments --so I'm wondering why they are showing up as not thanked? If you re-downlaod something without thanking again will that indicate the download as not thanked? IF the item is updated but you downloaded the original will that show up as being not thanked? For example -- I left a comment for Whiterider's hat hider --(great mod BTW!) http://www.modthesims.info/download...=0&page=2&pp=25 but since then Whiterider updated the mod. My list is showing this as being not thanked even though I did say thanks.

WOW. I so did not even realize that you could do that. Thank you Delphy! It'll make it SO much more useful to find stuff I downloaded again.

*double bop Robodl95 on the head*

I only missed thanking 5% of my downloads and I promptly took care of that!

There was only one I swear I didn't DL but who knows, I could have.

Now all I need is one of those handy - click on the word and it brings up spelling options - for those times my brain suddenly goes totally blank!

This is sooo much better than searching the site for updates!!!

Went from 97% thanked to 100% thanked

It would be nice if you could thank the download from that page, rather then having to load each thread, though.

Oh, okay that explains some of what I'm seeing. But I also got a not thanked on http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=425334&c=1 which was a recent upload that I left a comment on when I downloaded.

Is there a way to delete a download from our list? Helper Monkey is there as unmarked (I'm certain I thanked on the thread). That page no longer exists so I can't rectrify this and it'll drive me nuts.

Maybe I'm blind, but under User Links, I see My Favourites in the Download category, but no My Downloads. Is it accessible some other way?

I have greatly missed this feature. Way back when it was available I didn't download much at all, but I've been wishing for its return for several years now. Too bad it only goes back to April, though, since I recently reinstalled Sims 2 and am now trying to track down all my downloads without having to pull out and dig through my backups.

EDIT: Just had a hunch, tested it, and it proved right. The reason I can't see My Downloads is because it's not there in Moddeth Thine Sims. A temporary switchover gets me the link, though, so I can explore to my heart's content. 'Twould be nice if it gets fixed for Moddeth though.

tlynnjpeg - It's "My Downloaded Items" and is the very first thing directly below "User Links" when you click on it.

Yes, I found it when I switched the style I was using. But it's not there when I'm using Moddeth Thine Sims.

Great and great! I've missed My Downloads, so I'm very happy that it's back - and that I can see if the downloads have been updated/thanked to boot!
