Thought I'd post this up in the main news since many people have asked for this functionality since the rating system was first introduced. Quoting the file database change log:
Re-Rating Of Files
You can now re-rate files that you have already rated. Your old vote will be removed from the database and your new vote cast (therefore stopping you from voting twice for the same mod).
It looks like Knights of the Nine will be gracing the Xbox 360 and PC on the 21st of November. See this press release. Most importantly, they're releasing a retail box including Knights of the Nine and all downloadable content thus far!
No word on pricing yet. Let's hope it's not too steep.
Just thought I'd pop some news up to let you all know that I moved into my new house in Exeter yesterday, ready for the new University year next week. At this time I have no internet access and probably won't have for a week, maybe two.
I can catch emails and keep up-to-date on the forums through my department computers but will not be replying to many emails or forum topics since I don't have the time to spare (and it sorta screws with my organisation of knowing who I've emailed/who I haven't!).
If anyone has any problems with Supporter payments then please be rest assured that they'll be dealt with when I'm back online with the proper measures being taken to make sure your time is reimbursed.
A lot of people are emailing me or PMing me at the moment saying they can't login with their username and password. 99% of the time this is because you are not using your username but your "Display Name". During March and April a setting was on in the forum software that enabled you to change your Display Name, the name other people saw you as. This did not, however, change your actual user name.
Please use your username, not your Display Name to login to the site.
I hope this helps some people.
I just so happened to stumble over this article at bit-tech.net. Interesting, no? It sounds like that dev saying there wouldn't be any expansions was a load of hot air. Knights of the White Stallion here we come, apparently!
Of course, I won't 100% believe it until Bethesda confirm it. But it's looking pretty likely.
EDIT: I was right about not believing it. Or so it seems, anyway. GamersReports have spoken to Pete Hines, and it's been confirmed that this was a false alarm. Notice he says no "announced" plans. We'll just have to see.
The new Supporter system is now running and live and people have already begun to help out! It is greatly appreciated and I respect the kindness and willingness of this community to support me in helping to provide the resources that I do.
For those of you who don't know there are now two types of accounts for members. The first is the normal "free" account that does everything it currently does. Nothing has been changed and you can still download (albeit slowly!) from the servers as per usual. The second is a new "Supporter" membership that provides you with an upgraded account complete with a faster download server, no ads/caching and some other cool features like the file tracker (which, as the name suggests, tracks file updates for you!). This upgrade is provided in return for a small donation to the site so we can afford new hardware and bandwidth to keep the site going to a good standard.
The Supporter system was introduced so that I could say thank you back to those people who are generous enough to help me so please don't shun it thinking it's a step in the wrong direction; because it's a step in the necessary direction if I want to keep running this site, and more, to a stable and top-notch standard.
If you're not interested in being a Supporter (I don't see why you wouldn't be!) but would still like to donate some money to help out there is also a donation form.

I've put a new page up on the site regarding a voluntary subscription system that'll be put in place soon for TESSource. If you could head on over to our feedback page and leave your mark I'd appreciate it.
The caching system has been changed today to stop the annoying "back button not working" problem. As a result file links should now be changed to ensure better user interaction (as well as stopping the 404 error occuring when your page hasn't been cached!).
If you currently use the "http://www.tessource.net/files/cache/fileid.html" system to link to your file you can easily change it by taking the fileid (NOT the .html part) and changing the link to "http://www.tessource.net/files/file.php?id=fileid".
While your cache links will still work I'd recommend changing your links whenever possible.
I'm currently out of town at the moment. Simon (my best friend/host) has just informed me he has moved the site to a different hard drive. I have no way of verifying that the move has completely worked but the initial checks that we have performed give a green light, all clear.
If any of you come across any problems with the site; problems that have occured since from today, then please let me know.
Bethesda recently decided to kick up their recruiting drive looking for game developers, who will give possible input to TES:V.
Apparantly they think the modders that have modded for former TES games might make good devs.
The jobs they are looking for are:
-Special FX Artist
-PR/Marketing Management (think Pete Hines)
I'm not 100% sure on the details, but I'd expect them to want programmers with extensive C++ knowledge and artists good with 3d Studio Max. Being a Marketing Manager would likely be similar to what Pete Hines does. A quest designer would likely need to be imaginitive, willing to fit in ES lore (don't quote me on this!), and able to use the CS.
Make sure you check out the Bethsoft jobs page!
