Hi folks,

              just wondering if folks could point me in the right direction. I've got some stuff I'd like to scan and upload to Atarimania's database (mainly manuals), and have registered on the site, no problem. However, trying to register on their forums seems to be a different kettle of fish. I'm guessing whoever signs off on new forum members is super busy at the mo, as I can register but my account is never activiated (or a link sent out). Wondered if people had similar experiences, or knew if their forum peeps hung around here as well

 

As always, TIA

 

Si

My suggestion is to upload stuff either here or on Archive.org and then just point it to them. I scan a ton of manuals and upload them to Archive.org. Sometimes I will add a link to the manual in the Comments section of each entry on Atarimania.

That's probably the best advice, I've been trying for literally years (4 plus) to get an Atarimania account and have been unsuccessful.  To be fair to the Atarimania folks, I've never reached out for help beyond one email (so it's not on them)

Yup just click on either of the profile W squares in my post... :) and it takes you to him, or click and go to the message and click on him for pm or drop a note in the thread because the pm mailbox is often full and accepts no more messages... ymmv

Another voice for uploading any and all scans of boxart, manuals, media etc. to archive.org and then posting the link here. A lot of media being archived by the community just disappears into non-public black holes that the maintainers (no matter how hard they try) may never get to the bottom of. 

 

If you don't want to create an account on archive.org or are worried about posting it there for any reason, feel free to contact anyone who does it regularly @Allan@Savetz, me  etc. I'm sure they would be happy to post it for you and give you credit if you want.

 

Maybe we could get a thread going on AA where people can post new scans and an archiver periodically grabs it and uploads it to archive and posts a link
