Yes, it is true that I think Yahoo deleted things due to group inactivity date and it is impossible in some groups to go to download material

That's an old link to be sure. I didn't know it still existed. I know I can't even access it. The Yahoo links are just reordered after Yahoo changed the structure.

After December probably won't be available anymore of course. I don't even know what's in all of em anymore myself tbh.

The past week I have gone through and checked all the Yahoo links, and downloaded everything I could. I have also checked the sites on The Wayback Machine, and, while I still think we are losing stuff slowly, there is still some content in most of the sites listed. Lastly, I went through the first list of active sites and checked them, and have marked through one; it may still work later.

The real credit goes to those who did these things in the first place (of which you are one). I know a lot of these meshes and skins have been rendered obsolete, but some just look so neat, and the amount of creativity that goes in to some is amazing (Ghost Rider on Vegeta?).

Superpowered Yank will be glad to know that the bulk down loader that was supposed to save the skins saved the porn too. But, as of December 14, 2019, the Yahoo Groups no longer contain any Freedom Force content.

Checked the links in the first post; downloaded something from most of the groups. Put strike through text on a couple and will see if they "get better".


Later:

Checked the sites accessible through the Wayback Machine. It still seems like we are constantly losing stuff from here all the time.

Same as usual; checked the sites in the first post and downloaded a random file from each. The broken stuff is still broken.

A trick here, I noticed a lot of the links are dead. Truth is though the hyperlinks are, not the file storage itself. So the trick is you go to the address, I'll use Val's on NPI since it's one of the high traffic ones for us here. You go to the addy and erase the end of it, the part that brings you to the site page and back it up so there's just just a directory with a / at the end. This will kick you into the directory tree mode and you can then download the files via Save As. Here's the example. I could not dl all of these just by clicking on them when the page itself was there with graphics but can download any through the back door like this.

My method is a bit slightly different and doesn't appear to bring up everything yours does, but it would be interesting to just go through and compare the two, see if the bring up the same material, or if there is anything different.

I meant to point out that you had a similar method, but hadn't yet.

Checked the sites in the list of Wayback Machine sites, and a lot were showing broken links.
