The Eye Shield Website (Freewebs, 2012-21)

Post by Eyeshield »

You can now view PDFs of all seventy issues of The Eye Shield at http://www.freewebs.com/theeyeshield/.

Many of The Eye Shield links on this website seem to be missing or broken, so if anyone fancies redoing them then they can.

Issues 1-9 are in their original state, with all pictures and puzzles reinstated.

This message is from Jake (Eyeshield) posted via Ross' account.

Which links in particular are broken? I don't see any and nobody has reported any of the The Eyeshield links being broken.

The Eyeshield option under the "Fanzine" tab of this site leads to a 404 error.

Ah, I see. It's broken on the *forum* menubar, not the knightmare.com menubar.

Well, it was a tense 2 minutes and 13 seconds, but the link from the forum to the eye shield (and the other fanzines) is now working.

FYI, the link via knightmare.com has always been functional, even before the other site's links were fixed up.

A few issues of TES (30, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 55, 57, 58) seem to have gone missing from Knightmare.com at some point - is it possible to reupload the PDF attachments? All the other ones are fine.

Not sure if you're aware, but all of the issues are currently available and working at the website in the first post. :)

hm, yes indeed.
Fixing it is causing another problem that I don't have the time to deal with right now, so I'll fix it this evening.

I know, but all my fanfic and Lexicon links are to Knightmare.com, and my OCD would prefer I didn't have a handful of them pointing to a different site. :P And not everyone who tries to read them on KM.com will be aware of the alternative.
Additionally, search engines do not like replicated content. From a traffic and search engine ranking point of view, it is far better to have 10 links to one site than 5 to one and 5 to another.

Like all Webs websites, this one will disappear forever at the end of this month (March 2021).
