After Tanker Information
« on: April 16, 2014, 06:38:48 AM »
Does anyone have a link (if still exsists) for the guides that were posted by "Call Me Awesome" for the following;

  • Invulnerability Tanker, the first 20 levels (Call_Me_Awesome)
  • Invulnerability tankers and the Defense soft cap (Call_Me_Awesome)

Have looked on the archived origianl forums https://web.archive.org/web/20120904233028/http://boards.cityofheroes.com/showthread.php?t=112232 but doesn't come back with anything :(

For some reason, clicking the links to the guides in the archive you posted goes to the actual boards.cityofhereoes.com website - most of the links I see on Internet Archive go to the archive of that site. Pasting the links into the archive URL gets:

https://web.archive.org/web/20120904095330/http://boards.cityofheroes.com/showthread.php?t=126983
https://web.archive.org/web/20120911095148/http://boards.cityofheroes.com/showthread.php?t=133483

They work fine for me.

Edit: For some reason, the link you gave doesn't have the archive.org header / toolbar thing, which may be why it doesn't redirect links to an archived version.
Edit: Or maybe it's because they were archived in a different way, since it was an emergency website archive.

I used CIT before they even joined the Titan network! But then I left for a long ol' time, and came back. Now I edit the wiki.

I'm working on sorting the Lore AMAs so that questions are easily found and linked: http://paragonwiki.com/wiki/Lore_AMA/Sorted Tell me what you think!

Thanks for the links, have tried clicking on the links, copying links, open link location but always comes up page not found? have noticed though when the page not found notice comes up there is no archive.org present in the address?

Did you just click on the link on the forum page and get directed straight to the page or did you have to mess with the address?

I went to the page you linked (https://web.archive.org/web/20120904233028/http://boards.cityofheroes.com/showthread.php?t=112232).

Clicked on the guides, but they went straight to the boards.cityofheroes.... address (http://boards.cityofheroes.com/showthread.php?t=133483)

I copied that, and replaced the guide url with it, from your initial link (the part in bold). That came out with the two links I provided, which work fine for me.

Below is the content, unformatted and not prettily colored.

Thanks I managed to get to the information using your links so very grateful, but trying to figure out your explanation as I still come up with page not found message?

Maybe I'm being abit stupid (or very) can you explain in laymans terms please :-[

Sometimes the web archive can be a bit persnickety when clicking links on old pages. What I've found to work sometimes with the old forums is to replace the "t=XXXXXX" portion of a URL that does work with what is in the target link, letting the archive try to auto-resolve it to the closest date entry that it has.

Thank you very much, this trick worked  ;D
