amvapp link

Postby Phantasmagoriat » Fri Jul 29, 2011 9:17 pm

So I just googled "amvapp" and the first couple links that came up went to very old versions.

This is just going to create problems.

Perhaps links to the latest guide can be added to the top of old pages?
Or perhaps the old guides should be archived somewhere else;
and replaced with the latest guide so there's always a static link to the latest app/guide.

That way, even if people bookmark the guide, they are always using the latest info.

The links to the latest guide are there. In red. Which, of course, doesn't change anything about the fact that nobody reads those.


Archivation would be nice, actually.

I propose getting the old links to redirect to the newer guide and getting new links for the older guides. For example, have /guides/avtech redirect to the newer guide and have the older one in something like guides/archive/avtech (various old links would get a redirect to the newer page if possible, otherwise to the guide's homepage? ─ this would make the old amvapp link redirect to the new one, in reply to OP).
I know that at least some sites are outdated and just point to the older guide due to that, but since it is detrimental and it's not like we can fix links on other sites, I think this would be for the best.

Yeah, redirects or whatever works so people stop using outdated info.
