In case you should get to the thread Satellites : general discussion and musings, let me save you some trouble, at least for the first 37 pages. I started copying the non-working links a year or so ago but never got around to read the full thread. At least it's a start:

Oh, thank you very much!

I have just been so busy lately, I will have to get to this a little later. :(

Alright, thank you for your patience. I believe the German site is now "up to date", and thanks to your help the original English-version is also improved.

As for those problems in the Satellites thread, we will have to address those sooner or later, for sure. Whew! :blink:

Thanks hoi!
Is there a reason why you didn't remove the German box on the English site or did you just forget?

I noticed that the non-breaking hyphen didn't work on the website. I should not have used it. (I wanted the pdf files to be an easier read.) I have gone through the files again to see how often it happened. Eight times in total. If you wouldn't mind, could you please change them and add a regular hyphen after "9/11" in the following instances:

a1_[Main]_The Power of Imagery_(Die Macht der Bilder)
error: 9/11Planer ein schlecht qualifiziertes Animationsteam
should be: 9/11-Planer ein schlecht qualifiziertes Animationsteam

a4.1_[Main]_Airplane Animations_(Flugzeug-Animationen)
error: 9/11 Geschichte vorgetragen werden
should be: 9/11-Geschichte vorgetragen werden

a4.2_[Main]_Collapse Animations_(Einsturz-Animationen)
error: 9/11 Animationsteams
should be: 9/11-Animationsteams

Regarding this page, you forgot to change the text to fit the picture/analysis:
error (English): his WTC tower only shows 39 out of 59 beams !
should be: his WTC tower only shows 39 out of 57 beams !
error (German): Sein WTC-Turm zeigt nur 39 von 59 Stahlträgern!
should be: Sein WTC-Turm zeigt nur 39 von 57 Stahlträgern!

a4.4.6_[Main]_THE “JUMPERS“_(DIE „SPRINGER“)
error: 9/11 Amateurvideos gezeigt
should be: 9/11-Amateurvideos gezeigt

a5.0_[Main]_The Memorial Scams_(Die Gedenkschrift-Betrügereien)
error: 9/11 Opfer wurden sehr wahrscheinlich
should be: 9/11-Opfer wurden sehr wahrscheinlich

This page also contains an error of mine:
error: In 2001 war die allgemeine Öffentlichkeit
should be: Im Jahr 2001 war die allgemeine Öffentlichkeit

a5.1_[Main]_Ridiculously Bad Vicsim Pic Collection_(Abgrundtief schlechte Sim-Opferbilder)
error: 9/11 Gedenkseiten gefunden
should be: 9/11-Gedenkseiten gefunden
(btw I noticed that on the German site the background in the subchapter "THE RIDICULOUSLY BAD MEMORIAL PHOTOS" is brown whereas on the English site it is white.)

c5.0_[Adv.R]_The Vicsim Report_(Der Sim-Opfer-Bericht)
error: 9/11 Opferproblematik
should be: 9/11-Opferproblematik

d2.2_[DIY]_Archived Terrorism Victims_(Archivierte Terrorismus-Opfer)
error: mit vielen Fotos aus der 9/11 Simulation
should be: mit vielen Fotos aus der 9/11-Simulation

These were the very last errors. Take your time with them, there is no hurry. And thanks again for implementing the German site!

Thank you animus! Whoops, about the box on the English-language site, it is more like I got confused. I certainly remember thinking I removed it. I will get to these ... eventually. I cannot explain how busy I've become lately. This is also why The Clues Chronicle Issue 24 is taking so long. I do apologize.

I'd like to give an acknowledgement of how well written content is, and site maintenance over the past 5 years. The biting humor of Brianv has provided plenty of laughs as well as the cheerfully sardonic humor of Simon. Hoi's english is impressive. And the collective work of the members is commendable.

On this note so excellently put by FervidGus I would like to kindly ask for an archive of the forum that can be stored offline. I've seen this have been done before.
