Everything about Sudoku that doesn't fit in one of the other sections

cannot access sudopedia.org

Postby engage » Sat Feb 04, 2012 2:43 pm

I purchased enjoy sudoku a few weeks back. I enjoy the app, but the game links to sudopedia.org, which will not display for me. The page exists, but all I see is white. Have tried two other computers with no luck. Is the site functional?

Well,

The site is now swamped with spam entries ....

Ruud has made a quick cameo after more than 4 years as well :D

It is sad to see more and more sudoku related web sites and forum servers
having serious maintenance issues.

For sudopedia I found backups with images on http://web.archive.org

e.g.:

Agreed, but very few are concerned before a site has serious problems or has disappeared completely.

Consider the number of 2012 Supporters of this site. It's almost March and there are only four, with two of those being moderators.

Sudopedia has been up for a couple of days, but the pictures aren't on the pages.

Sudopedia is down, yet again.

Does anyone have a full backup copy from before the images were lost? I am thinking about setting up a website with a read only copy so the content is not lost forever. I have a partial backup from around 2009. There weren't many changes after 2009, but it would be nice to have the whole site instead of just the quarter of the site I currently have.

This is the error message I get:

Deze website is tijdelijk afgesloten wegens excessief dataverkeer. Zodra het verkeer naar deze site is verminderd zal deze weer on-line komen.

www.mijndomein.nl

bing translation (Sorry, I don't read Dutch):

"This website is temporarily closed due to excessive data traffic. Once the traffic to this site is reduced will again come on-line."

I'm guessing the "excessive data traffic" is due to the spambots.

I have setup a partial static mirror of Sudopedia at http://sudopedia.enjoysudoku.com/.

I managed to get most of the content pages, but content can not be edited and none of the "wiki process" pages (such as edit history or talk) are present.
