Been a while, but with my new duties of responsibility in the LIBER I have some new additions for the Gallery (heraldries have been posted by me in the threads very recently if you wish to nab them). :biggrin.:

  1. The Depthwatch from Messor
  2. Dusk Falcons (the old colour scheme is one of mine and can be removed or renamed to Dusk Hawks) from Timberley

There'll be more once I see a few more colour schemes to add symbols to. :biggrin.:

Adjudicators and Depthwatch added. 1,104 chapters (295 Canon, 380 DIY, and  429 MIA - claim those MIAs! The Imperium needs you!!!)

 

@ Brother Tyler, @ Brother Cambrius - thanks to both of you. You have consistently supported this project over the years, and in recognition of your endeavours I've added you both to the Honour Roll for your general awesomeness :) If you would like custom links please let me know (I did not include 'B&C profile links' as they can only be seen by those logged in, but I can add them if you wish)

 

@ Bruce Malcom - have you finished your IA?

Oh my Emperor! I forgot about it! Here, I'll do it tomorrow, when I have access to a computer, so it will be actually well put together.

@Philip S Upgraded my Index Astartes. 

 

I found;

http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/topic/354726-the-banished-brigade/

http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/topic/355195-index-astartes-banished-brigade/

Neither are formatted, do you have another link that I have missed?

Do you need help figuring it out the codes?

I was a bit confused that the post didn't look anything like the template, considering it originated from there...yes, help would be great.

First you need the BB Code guide: http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/topic/304061-bbcode-guide/

 

This gives you all the tools you need. for example;

 

Basic header text in a black box

 

You can find the above code by hit quote, or use copy and past this for each header in your IA;

 

[basicheader=000]Basic header text in a black box[/basicheader]

If you are not comfortable with code, I can go into more detail?

I...should be fine. Hopefully I can get this sorted out soon...

I tried to recover them from Internet Archive., but no dice. They are gone. One was hosted on google's Picasa service which google retired. So even big hosts are not safe.
 
I suspect there are a lot more that have disappeared, and as time goes on, even more, will disappear. Ideas lost forever. I also wondered about B&C or Lexicanum disappearing!
 
How should I protect against this loss?
 
At first, I thought I'd used the internet archive (wayback machine) and grab them all before they disappear. However, that takes away the direct links to B&C and Lexicanum, which drives a little traffic to support them. Also, the wayback machine is also very slow, see how long this link fires up for you: Accipiters.
 
Should I use continue to use the live links to B&C and Lexicanum, and make a corresponding backup text list of all the chapters' wayback machine snapshots, and make sure there are snapshots of all chapter pages in the wayback machine?
 
Or should I swap to the wayback machine now, as I do not know when a links will break?
 
I think I'll have to create a backup list either way, after all, one day the way back machine will disappear. Perhaps I should get a hard drive and download everything and back it up locally on my machine, and if everything goes down, I can post it all on my website?
 
What are your thoughts?

Thank you Brother Tyler,

At the moment, as I'm transferring to the new site, I'm creating backups of all working links using the wayback machine. I'm also going to take your advice, and I'll create a local backup by downloading all the pages. This way I can re-create pages if Lex or B&C come to an end.

I cannot stand the idea of all these ideas disappearing. It reminds me of the ol' Anargo sector project, and when that disappeared so many good ideas went with it. All that is left is the original proboard forum, which has a wealth of information, but one day even that will disappear :sad.:

I would welcome the opportunity to further collaborate with B&C, as B&C is the core source of the DIY chapters. I love the idea of a more permanent IA section, where chapters have to be approved by members of B&C, our very own Chapter Approved.

Using the downloads sounds interesting. You'd end up with hundreds of IA, and that might drown out the other content so we'll need a new category: "DIY Index Astartes" or some such.

So, we'll end up with an IA section, our 'Chapter Approved', showing off the chapters in the standard B&C format, which has a link to the PDF download section.

I've added the resource links you supplied to the first page of this thread, under DIY submissions, and I'll add them to the new home page too :thumbsup:

I've thumbed (moused?) through this thread a couple times and believe my Chapter is almost ready to join the ranks. I've got artwork just about finished up and their main background/lore is starting to come together.

 

Aside from that this is a very cool project and thread. Thanks for the work you do!
