Broken Downloads

Post by Trovsky on Wed 18 Jan 2017 - 22:08

Recently, I noticed broken links in the tools threads, documentation threads, etc. I recommend making it a rule to have multiple links (mirrors) for the same download in case one download goes down. In a perfect world, having a database to store all the documentation would be ideal, but it is not realistic unless someone wants to dedicate the time to setup a database. So what does everyone think about having mandatory "mirrors"?

Nice idea, in any case, but I have multiple files and low motivation to go for that effort. zeldalegends.net is a very reliable mirror and I am also around frequently to support with my HD backup if anythng goes wrong.

If one offers a cloud space and backup all stuff there is a nifty idea in any case however.

I've been uploading content to bwass.org/bucket like so https://www.zeldix.net/t1254-zelda-3-sprite-editor

Probably should be a rule on uploading to sites where the uploader cannot remove the content because the uploader could possibly delete their content by accident or on purpose (Puzzledude and MathOnNapkins respectively).
