Old Archived Packets Broken Links

Post by TaylorH » Sat Sep 15, 2018 11:33 pm

I was recently looking through some older packets on the archive a noticed a number of old sets had broken links when the packets are clicked for download. Some packets download but upon opening the PDFs or Word Docs appear blank. In other cases, the packets will not download at all. Could this have been caused by the recent server migration? Packets impacted by this glitch include:

2013 Alston Barbarians Packet
2010 Belfast Arts
2007 Chicago Science Monstosity
2006 Vinokurov Singles
2005 Sun n Fun
2003 Sun n Fun
2003 Science Masters
2002 Science Masters
2002 Caltech Technophobia

There could be more but at least these packets appear to be inaccessible at the moment. Are these packets accessible to anyone else? Either way site mods should be aware of this. Apologizes if this is not in the correct sub forum.

I think there's a lot more than this.

Thanks for reporting this. I have fixed what I can, but I'll need Dan to double check that all of the files are properly readable by the database.

Whoops, sorry about that. Some file permissions were goofed during the server move.

The files are all still there and you should be able to download them again. Thanks for bringing this up!
