Thanks the replies and suggestions :thumbsup:

I'm happy for everything to be moved to the LEX and any readme files updated as needed - these have not been touched in years, so any non WMP links are probably no longer working.

I have all the source files for the website, so if it's easier I can distribute these.

Traffic to the site has been getting less and less, so it seams a lot of work to re-do the site as all that is needed is ability to download the files.

There are also the utility tools;

I'm not sure if these are even any use anymore - I did install them on my Win10 PC a while ago and they appeared to still work.


I'll help with anything if needed, but feel free to do what you think is best for this content

I wish I knew more about webhosting, as I always feel like there's a little bit of history with the old website design/layout and the information contained within it.

Also I just don't like dead links, and those are really common these days on the internet what with all the image hosting sites closing and then the collapse or policy changes of a number of other popular hosting sites.

I would love to figure out how to keep the sites on the web even if all of the files are catalogued and uploaded to the LEX for longevity, and even though the WMP site doesn't have forums (so much history was lost with the collapse of SimPeg)
Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Links can always be updated, as long as the content is available somewhere.

If somebody is willing to host the site (about 5 a month) then the whole website could just be transferred and continue as is.

Yep, the readme files would just need updating.
