List of dead links

From IFWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

In an attempt to reduce linkrot on our pages, we will attempt to list IF-related websites that have been taken offline or have moved to a new location. This list will be in reverse-chronological order; that is, the sites most recently known to have been lost or been moved are listed first.

When adding a website to this list, please also indicate the website's last known status, and what suggested remedy IFWiki (and others) can or should take to update themselves regarding the lost site.

Contents

2012

  • Jessica Knoch (strangebreezes.com) -- (Status: Site replaced by a Japanese site; unknown if Jessica has a new website somewhere else.)
    I'm going to mark all strangebreezes links with the "old link" template in the hopes that we can find their content again, perhaps at archive.com, if nowhere else. -- David Welbourn 03:56, 27 August 2012 (CDT)

2011

  • ADRIFT Forum -- (Status: Site moved from www.adrift.org.uk/cgi/f/ikonboard.cgi to forum.adrift.co)
    The old posts were copied into the new forum, but unfortunately, we can't do a mass search-and-replace for this; the forum and topic ID numbers weren't preserved. I'll create a new {{old link}} template to help markup which links on which pages need to re-found and updated. -- David Welbourn 05:52, 24 May 2011 (PDT)

2010

  • Robin Douglas Johnson (versificator.co.uk) -- (Status: Site moved to rdouglasjohnson.com)
    Both his games, Hamlet and Aunts and Butlers are available to play online. However, I can't seem to find any mention of the Versificator authoring system, nor any of his reviews of IF Comp 2006 games. I'll e-mail Robin and ask if those are still available on the new site or elsewhere or if that particular content is now gone. -- David Welbourn 14:19, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
  • Shadow Vault (shadowvault.net) -- (Status: Original gone; re-hosted under new management as shadowvault.co.cc)
    David Whyld, the site's creator, confirmed in November 2010 that the original site is gone for good, although he still has a copy. Some content can still be recovered via the Wayback Machine at archive.org. A fellow ADRIFTer, BlueMaxima, offered to re-host the Shadow Vault at shadowvault.co.cc. Whyld agreed to the move. Shadow Vault content is now at shadowvault.co.cc, which redirects to ultranine.novahost.org/shadowvault/index.htm.
    • Suggested remedy: Only links to SV's main page should point to "shadowvault.co.cc". For most links inside SV, replace "http://www.shadowvault.net/" with "http://ultranine.novahost.org/shadowvault/".

Pre-2010

  • Jason Dyer (members.aol.com/jdyer41/) -- (Status: TBD).
    His C32 Contest reviews and all three Excerpt Hunt pages are missing. I've mudmailed Ghogg to find out if any of that content is still available. -- David Welbourn 07:03, 9 December 2011 (PST)
  • Michael Martin (www.stanford.edu/~mcmartin) -- (Status: Content moved to new site).
    Michael Martin's new site is at http://hkn.eecs.berkeley.edu/~mcmartin/ . There's been some reorganization (his IF reviews are in a new "reviews" subdirectory), but all the old content should still be available.
This article is a stub. You can help IFWiki by expanding it.
TODO: Just adding the one site on my mind lately, but I'd like to add some older sites that have died or moved.
