www.retrosoftware.co.uk and the Internet Archive

Postby wizzwizz4 » Sat Jan 13, 2018 7:23 pm

I know that this (thread? group? subgroup? category? topic?) is not really the right place for this message, but I couldn't find anywhere else for it. :oops: The retrosoftware forums lead to this forum, which is the first along the chain that seems remotely active... so I think this is the right website.

The robots.txt of http://www.retrosoftware.org is currently... strict.

Code: Select all

User-agent: *
Disallow: /

This means that the Internet Archive cannot archive it. This means that, should the site ever go down, it's gone for good. :cry:

Can anything be done about this?

Will have a chat with Arcadian - that's his baby :) There may be a reason for it!
