I made a list of all hidden nitro-meca-penguins along with screenshots of their locations some 5 years ago, but never got an opportunity to release them. Is this of any help?

The images are here, by the way. But it would take ages saving all of them manually. Unless someone knows of some site extractor.
I can extract these manually, no problem. Where do you want them? The total size is too big for an attachement I guess.

Words come in all sizes. But even if they fit you,
they might not come at appropriate times.

wget can download the directory automatically. It's funny, earlier I thought about using it to make a mirror of the Twinsunica from 2002.

Actually, I'm currently downloading the images to my local PC (for personal use) using a program I found called WinHTTrack.

Kobold- sounds good. I'll announce my site when it's ready, then ask everyone for help.

You can use wikia.com. No need to host a custom server for that.

Actually, in the thread in which someone asked why the site is down, there's a spam post which wacko himself deleted. So I suppose that he is aware of that.

Of course, a server hosted in your own basement is much more reliable and is better protected from power outages and data loss - not to mention sudden loss of interest in maintaining it. Hundreds of gaming wikis on wikia are definitely wrong with their choice.

I was involved in a discussion about this as an administrator at Super Mario Wiki, and the problem with wikia mostly was that wikia now forces its new design on all wikis, with no freedom for the wiki maintainers to design their site.

Yeah, it's indeed quite annoying. I considered hosting a site I created there, but this design is one of the reasons I chose a different site.

Yeah, I'm not a fan of Wikia either. Better to be independent and in control.

So, did anyone rip the images yet?
I've finished doing so manually, up to the final "thumb" folder. This is where I died

Every folder is somehow systematically copyable, but this last one is a PITA.
If it is not required, I happily offer my work right now.

Were should we host them images...? Isn't there any ftp area or something at the MSN website?

I think I did something wrong there, because the images directory turned out to be ridiculously huge... 800 MBs in over 19,000 files... I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out eventually that I accidentally downloaded each file 5 times or something...

My own efford gave a mere 120MB folder of 1168 files, excluding most of "thumb"...
Hmmm

In the folder called "thumb" there are about 50 MBs for me, but with around 11,000 files. It's probably the thumbnails of the images, which are apparently saved as separate files.

That's what I figured too. Though because of the sheer amount of files and the non systematical foldernames, I will not download those manually. If you were able to succesfully download them with that software of yours, we could combine our work into the full load

Btw, I have all other images within due folder structure.

The folder structure is completely arbitrary. It doesn't sort the images in any humanly designed logic. It's just a hashing thing I suppose.

It is. I could understand the structure is designed to allow 256 different leaf nodes, in a hex system from zero to f. Though this system is copied for the "archive", "temp" and "meta" folders too, and "thumb" has a fifth version (with additional child leaf nodes).
This system totally allowed me to reproduce it fairly easily, though the additional leaf nodes are making it really heavy in the end.

So, we have most of the images back (I mean I have), what is the next step to do, for a new, self owned ency?

Await wacko's correspondence? I don't think we should disregard the wealth of information in the wiki.

How about someone really contacting wacko? I'm too embarrassed to do it myself.

Are we talking about this wacko? I don't exactly know what to say. I'm more of a theorist than an activist, but I do like and vote for progress.
