I would like to see this content re-hosted somewhere on the Web. Indeed, I offer Project: Redcap as a location and am willing to do some (not all ) of the work required to make that happen. But I think legal considerations constrain my actions a bit.
Yes, legal considerations do matter.
Articles on Durenmar are copyrighted by their authors. So the first thing I ask is, if you wrote an article for Durenmar, is your permission to re-post that article to Project: Redcap. You will receive credit as the original author. If you do not want your article converted to an editable Wiki page, I can lock it so as not to be edited.
I doubt we will be able to reconstruct all 79, but if we can get a substantial fraction of them, that would be great.
Volunteers welcome; please contact me off-list.
Copy and pasting seems to work for me. Not exactly elegant but it works.
I've noticed a lot of the articles seem to have their disclaimers at the top. you know the ones that say "The copyright of this article remains with the original author. Articles may be copied or distributed freely for personal non-profit use, provided that the author is properly credited.", or the equivalent. With such clear statements of intent I don't think any of the authors will have a problem.
Thanks. I regard Project: Redcap as non-profit, but not personal. So better to ask the authors' permission before I re-post them. So far I have received permission from two authors who are still active in the community. For the others, I can link to the Wayback Machine.
