    pretome News and Announcements

    Hey ladies and germs:
    Quick note to say we've made a lot of changes in the last few weeks regarding accessibility and general security.


    There's been a few spikes in traffic over the last few months from what looks to be badly configured user scripts (3rd party apps, auto downloaders and really bad RSS configurations).
    While we don't think this increase in traffic is malicious, it is still causing our systems to be working harder than normal.
    Some users have been sent on site PMs as a reminder to get their scripts in order.
    To stop this situation in the future 480382 we'll also be rate limiting resources such as RSS to enforce proper usage (rate limiting details in site Wiki).
    This should provide everyone with access to our site and resources like RSS without the few spoiling it for the many.


    Do not add PTM RSS feeds to any 3rd party RSS readers (such as google)!
    These sites will be blocked as soon as they are noticed and at the very least your passkey will be reset, you may also receive an account warning.




    also... nothing new here:
    If your client cant connect for some reason ? Read the Wiki about white listed clients.
    make sure to disable automatic updates for clients (utorrent is super bad for this).


    None of the above should affect any of us regular users, only the outlining 1% of the 1% who seem to be causing problems

    PreToMe (PTM) News - Pending Updates

    PreToMe's 3rd and last donation special of 2018 is due to start on the 23rd November, lasting 7 days.

    If you want to get involved in supporting our site and making sure we're here to see 2019?

    It might be worth looking at getting a Patreon account, or how to buy BitCoins, today so you don't miss out at the time!
    During our donation special, we'll be offering double credits/VIP time and account PowerUps.

    As well as propping up the site over our hardest months (December and January),
    this donation special will also cover us for our 2019 hardware layout.
    As once again we're moving suppliers and countries, keeping on the move and keeping us all safer.

    Downtime & maintenance window scheduled for December 2nd.
    This is going to be a big one, the entire site & tracker will be offline for 3 or 4 hours.
    While we move our entire system to new servers in a new home in a new country.

    Ladies and Germs!

    As previously hinted, we're running a donation special and handing out the account perks and powerups.

    To help fund this site over the next 3 months, typically the hardest months of the year for us.

    This will also coincide with hardware replacements planned for the start of December.

    BitCoin and Patreon are preferred donation choices, where ever possible. ( you can still use your paypal to donate through Patreon should you wish).

    There is still one remaining paypal account If this is your only possible donation method.

    Details of this account will only be shown to some users, details of this on the donate page.
    and without further blabbing:

    2nd of December PTM systems will be offline for around 4 hours (starting 4am UTC)
    There may be unexpected instability for up to 2 hours after, depending on final testing with true load.
    While we mix up and change countries and providers for all systems.
    This will be a complete shake down of every system bar IRC, to provide us with the site we love for 2019.
    We didn't quite manage to reach our donation target, so some plans have been adjusted.

    Friends in our space have shared information with PTM, for this reason: we no longer operate or host from USA or Germany in any way.


    New systems layout will be live from the evening of the 2nd of December 2018 after testing & validation.

    My friends, thank you for your continued support to our little community. May she continue through 2019.

    From all the staff
    much love.

    PreToMe (PTM) News - Status update

    Notice of intended downtime

    Too many bugs surfaced while moving, rather than keep the site down for an extended time, we'll address these bugs and attempt the old switcheroo at some point Monday

    We're back on original hardware while all these new issues are addressed...

    Updates on that tomorrow
