Lost Sites


HR


Sometimes sites are inaccessible. That's the nature of the Internet. Usually they're back again the next day.
But when the same site has been inaccessible for several months, then I suspect that it has gone out of business.

Usually I link to the graphics artists' sites on the same page where their graphics is used.
But with these sites I have decided to link to this page instead, and link to their site from here - to explain to you why the link probably won't work.
If it suddenly works - or if you find that any of these artists are back in business somewhere else - would you mind mailing me a message?

With some sites, though, their disappearance from the Internet is more deliberate and a lot more sad.
The following artist decided to close down her site because of the misuse of her graphics.

When I started using this artist's graphics, I put a link to her site on the same page where her graphics was used.
Now I've changed that link to point to this page instead, and I then link to her site from here - to explain to you why the link probably won't work.
If it suddenly works - or if you find that she is back in business somewhere else - would you mind mailing me a message?

And I'm sorry to say she is not the only one. Several artists have decided to go out of business because they can't cope any longer with their rules being broken - whether by people who actually steal their graphics and pass it off as their own, or by people who link directly to the artist's site and run up her bandwidth bill with her webspace provider to unmanageable heights.
(And some artists who were previously offering graphics for free, are now only selling them, because it's easier to keep control over their graphics that way, and because even a small fee - and having to submit personal data to the payment service - seems to keep most of the thieves away.)

Why don't we follow the artists' rules when we use their graphics?

Keep original artists on the net
