    This page https://www.shroudoftheavatar.com/?page_id=59279 is right in the main menu, so it looks bad when it has dead links or links to outdated content. It can leave the impression the game may be abandoned.

    I was compelled to go through the entire list after hitting a number of dead links myself. I sort of regret it, because it took a long time.

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ug2IpUMMeNlQ8bzCKcLD3-t3yURRb6AKX5DVYLFe9KI/edit?usp=sharing

    I marked in red the ones that need to be deleted, and yellow the ones that should be considered for deletion.

    As an aside, this game deserves better than this list of resources. It is just forum posts, wiki links, youtube videos, streamer links, and a handful of external sites. All of these things are great but it should be organized and presented better, and in some cases, the information should be authoritative and official, not an outdated reverse-engineered post from a player. I appreciate that the game itself is more important, but this is just my opinion. This is a part of the book's cover.

    Shroudmusic.com moved servers this past weekend.

    I have yet to finish migrating everything since I hadda move NBNN, WRFB And several others as well that were slightly more important :)

    And WRFB.ROCKS should be added to this list since it's not there for some odd reason
    Good work all in all tho.

    It is on line 107. You may have missed it because the link text does not have ROCKS. It was actually the best laid out of the radio links. By that I mean, it seemed organized, semi-intuitive, and the broadcast played. It's amazing how common it is for radio shows to miss that last part.

    Ahhh Yes.

    Radiofreebritannia.com is just a placeholder these days as I found its to hard for people to remember and type in properly. Even tho that's the name of the station LOL!
    But it's all good as that forwards to wrfb.rocks :) Much easier to type and remember.
    Maybe it will get updated after they read this.

    Thanks for the updates.

    Awesome, I'll go through your list on the next pass with the resources. You can also post in responses to this thread to ask for changes and additions to the resource listing. https://www.shroudoftheavatar.com/forum/index.php?threads/community-resources.161448/

    Thanks for the info and the work testing the links :)

    Aerie Fund is no longer in existence. Site is now closed.

    Avatars Radio site no longer in existence. Redirects to a unknown site.

    College of Arms Site is a dead link.

    SOTA Assist site leads to a dead page.

    SOTA Date calendar 503 Service unavailable.

    All other links seem functional.

    I was curious why you were posting about stuff I "already removed" and noticed all my changes didn't take for BOTH locations. Could I have forgotten to hit post/publish two times?? Ha, maybe. I was having interweb issues so perhaps something to do with it. I'll redo the work again today, which will be easy since I made copies of everything removed.
