Tommy has been rebuilt and we are already in the process of transferring the first accounts to him.

We will be going down the list of all of the accounts that were on Tommy when he crashed, and either sending an invite to the email address, or if the email address is already in use on Johnny or Ricky that account will be moved to Tommy. Obviously we can't move thousands of accounts in a single day so we will be working our way down a list that is more or less sorted by donation amount. This means that if you donated a relatively large amount you will be among the first to get back on Tommy. The list has been randomized somewhat though to be as fair as possible. It will likely take a few weeks to get everyone moved or invited back onto Tommy though so please continue to be patient. If your email address is on our list and you created a new account on Ricky or Johnny, but you don't want for whatever reason to be moved back to Tommy just let us know and we'll remove you from the list. Once all of the donors and previous Tommy account owners have been transferred or created their new Tommy accounts we will open Tommy for free daily signups again, but it will be a while before that happens. If you're not on the list, and don't want to wait for free signups feel free to make a donation at https://www.heliohost.org/donate/ and let us know the transaction ID. The email address that you donate from will be added to the list, and you will receive your invite when your turn comes. If you have any questions please let us know.

I think I understand! I'd just like to be sure...

 

I had a Tommy account, it was a limited time free invite thing when I joined, so I hadn't donated. (Would love to, but we're barely getting by ourselves these days...maybe someday!) Am I still going to eventually get an invite, or are the invites for donors specifically? (I didn't make a temporary account on any other server)

 

Thanks in advance for the answer to the question, and thank you guys for the work you put into this for us!!

I got an invitation to be transferred to Ricky.  When my turn is due, can I please, recreate my account on tommy rather than being transferred?  My email address is ron@fcs.com.mt.

If your email address is on our list and you created a new account on Ricky or Johnny, but you don't want for whatever reason to be moved back to Tommy just let us know and we'll remove you from the list.

Not a chance

Do I understand correctly that since I have donated a couple of times in the past few years I will automatically be re-instated on Tommy? Or will I simply receive an invite and then respond to that before my site will be back up? Thank you.

Playing "Welcome Back Kotter" in my head.

I am in school right now, but will be requesting a move over.

Wait a minute, how in the world do we get an invitation?

Yes, you will receive an invite eventually.

The easiest way to accomplish this would be to change your contact email address on your temporary Ricky account to something other than ron@fcs.com.mt. That way when the script checks for an account using that email address it won't find anything and an invite will be sent instead. You can change your email address by logging in to cpanel, and then click your username in the top right corner, and select contact information.

If you have a temporary Ricky or Johnny account that is using the same email address that your old Tommy account was using when he crashed then yes, your account will automatically be moved back to Tommy. If you don't have an account using that email address an invitation email will be sent to you. The way the invitation email works is there is a special validation code that you can click that allows you to create an account even if the server is full for the day. You don't have to reply to anything, actually the email comes from no-reply@heliohost.org so even if you tried to reply it wouldn't go anywhere, just click the link when it arrives.
