    For anybody looking for the Halloween set @JoeJude16 was talking about: Hover on the word 'Store' in the blue band at the top of your TS3 page and a drop down box appears. Move down one to 'Store Content' and another drop down box appears. Go down to 'Sets' and click. At the bottom of the sets list is 'Holidays & Gifts'. Click on this and you'll find a lot of the free stuff available in the store ;)

    @despina53, thank you. I can't believe I was so dense that I've never spotted it there. Oh well, at least I have it now. And OMG the skeleton teddy bear in the other set! How have I never seen these before? I only knew about the first two sets.

    Hi everyone. OE kept me from logging on for a bit. I just came on to check the spreadsheet and was very confused. I will reset the main spreadsheet. It will take me a bit to redo the time zone specific spreadsheets.

    I talked to customer support (Anees) and was told that they did some site maintenance and the reset was an unexpected result of that. As of 9:24pm EST I was told the maintenance was in its final stages and MMAO should be good once that is done which should be another couple of hours.

    Also Anees was very nice and says he loves talking to his sims fans and was very helpful (and gave me Katy Perry Sweet Treats just for being such a fan and having all the XP's and stuff ^_^). I was also promised no more strangeness would happen to the site and he said things should continue on from where they are now. ^_^ Just wanted to let everyone know what I learned.

    @Tamaek - Thank you so much for posting this and finding out what happened. The list was going without any hiccups for over a year two years. This was totally unexpected. I was busy with other things and thought "Thanks goodness the daily deal is on autopilot." Also congratulations for getting Katy Perry Sweet Treats since it is very hard to find a copy. The collection definitely includes some unique items.

    @JoeJude16 - Thanks for posting the time change for the deals. I calculated the deals change at 54 minutes of the hour and was glad to see my calculations were confirmed by your post.

    @annatronic - Thanks for posting the deal numbers when the DD reverted from deal 168 to deal 91.

    @missy2311 - Thanks for the pm and heads up.

    Glad you are back @Me1620 ! Hope everything is OK :)

    Since the current deal is almost finished, I'll post some more:
    Upcoming

    109 ) Mid-Century Modern Study- Plexi-Wonderful Surface Decor / 12 / 25 / 52% / 2 hours
    Part of: Mid-Century Modern Bedroom Collection; A Mid-Century Modern Trailblazer Set; Blast From the Past Compilation; Mid-Century Modern Bed and Bath Set; When Worlds Collide Collection

    This is the only time the item is offered on the DD

    112 ) Enchanted Bundle of Dark Dealings / 1103 / 1823 / 39% / 2 hours

The regular price of this item dropped from 550 sp last August which would make this deal 46% off.

    @Hoplass - Thanks for posting.

    Family celebrations kept me away, so all is good (and almost good with the main spreadsheet)

    @Me1620 it was no trouble. I just wish they could get this all sorted out. People are still having troubles with MMAO, Logging in and that sort of thing. And thanks for updating everything.

    Thanks to @Hoplass for posting. ^_^

    And a public thank you to @JoeJude16 for helping me recalibrate for this weekend when I'm going to be away from my PC.

    I'm starting to wonder if someone else shouldn't contact them and ask what is going on because I was told a few hours and it has been almost 2 days now.
    As of 12-18-16 I joined the Own The Store Club! Now I get to pay it forward! Thanks to everyone who helped me get here. You guys are amazing. ^_^ Love to you all!! <3

    @Tamaek - I had trouble connecting to the site, but I am logged in now. I was just able to use MMAO. I usually get the "You own the store message". Just now, I was offered Sunlit Tides Gold for 10% off. (I own the standard version). I am even seeing some of the bonus ads.

    I still can't access the MMAO page, keeps telling me the site is down. It's been this way for 2-3 days now. :(

    @me1620 Yes, I've done both and had no joy.
  • Kittycata87Kittycata87 Posts: 20 New Member
    I can see the MMAO page as normal if I log out, but once I sign back in I get the 'Be Right Back!' screen. I've tried reporting it to EA but the only option I can find is to email them.
  • TamaekTamaek Posts: 440 Member
    @Me1620 and @Kittycata87 I'm having exactly the same problem. I can't even log in with another browser.

    Strange why I can log in? Maybe we are accessing servers in different countries. I am in Canada but I believe we access servers in the USA.

    @Me1620 I guess you just got lucky! I can log in on my laptop using different browsers, but not at all on my phone. It's strange.

    I reopened the case and am inquiring again. I'll update once I get some answers (hopefully).

    Update: I spoke to Emmet.

    Emmet
    Yes there are issues with it that we are having investigated by the studio at the moment, sadly I don't have any updates on this at the moment we are working to have this resolved as quickly as possible. I am sorry for any inconvenience caused.

    Me
    Okay. But it is a known issue and is being worked on?

    Emmet
    yes we have had other reports of these issues with the site and have raised it to the studio team

    So that is what I was told.

    @marty38 My Weekly Specials also state 10/12/2016 as the sale end date.

    @Kittycata87 Same! MMAO has been down for me for 2-3 days now. Can log in on laptop (but with MMAO down on Firefox and Chrome browsers), won't log in on phone at all.
  • JennyferLxJennyferLx Posts: 87 Member
    That glitch is one that has actually benefitted me for a change. Had to ❤️❤️❤️❤️ out to my phone during nightshift but grabbed a deal I had missed before. Hopefully the ads come back soon, I've got like 19 points left... Just as well MMAO is still not working for me :)

    Still only partially connected. MMAO isn't working (get the geek fixing his glasses) Can't enter "My Store Account" details from the drop down menu that comes from my user name in the top left. It opens a blank unsecure page that freaks my browser out. Getting multiple messages for single gifts received. But I can sign in on both browsers on my Mac and on my phone, not that it matters much since there is nothing for me to buy for 3 days, and hopefully it will be sorted by then. (Yeah, right.)

    I won't deny that I have a dark feeling that they are all sweetness on the phone about looking into it. But that is the same line they've fed us a dozen times about bugs in the game that they never fixed and we still live with today. The disappearance of Graham's Pet Swap after installing certain EPs is a fine example. Whenever I install a new world the first thing I do is place that lot and save a copy and use that as my master when starting a new game in that world. And has anyone ever gotten the tree from Lunar Lakes to work? I haven't. It's so sad. Obviously Sims 3 is a masterful game. Look at how many of us are still rabid fans years after production stopped. IN SPITE OF all the glitches and blotchy bits, I still think it outplays Sims 4 (although City Life may save that, if they bring pets back next.)

    Ok, I'm done grumping. Was gonna use another word, but it would only have changed it to plumming anyway. o:)

    EDIT: I somehow got Lunar Lakes on my system. I did not download it from a torrent site (that I can remember) but the store says I don't own it either. So if you've noticed it on my wishlist and wondered about that statement, this is why.

    Hmm I got a "plum"... :/

    @JoeJude16 - I didn't know this. I will have to check next time I go in my game.

    City Life does look interesting and almost makes me want to get TS4. However, I don't want to start investing so much money in another Sims game. I spent so much money on Sims 3 and I am still finding new ways to enjoy it. I might consider buying TS4 when the entire collection sells for 75% off

    The store is completely down at the moment. It won't even pretend to try to load. Hopefully they're fixing the latest snafus.
