I assume that y'all remember Phostenix website with a huge amount of great diagrams over guitar wiring. His site lost all the diagrams/images a couple of years back, which was a terrible waste.
I have now managed to get in contact with Phostenix (Steve Tucker, AZ) and he would be more than happy to let Guitarnuts2 host a fully functional copy of his website (with images).
To make things a bit easier, my recommended vision is that his website would be an archived section under "Guitar wiring" on this site. No additions, no question, no replies under that archived section.
Phostenix has given me access to his dropbox archive with ALL his diagrams, but I don't want to make it publically available. It's better that the staff at Guitarnuts2 makes a copy of all the diagrams and saves it under your own account at imgbb.com/ Phostenix has also agreed to let Guitarnuts2 make a mirror copy of all the pages on his website. So the task, as I see it, is to rebuild all the links to the images and webpages on his website and host it under Guitarnuts2. That's a very small price to pay for such a wealth of knowledge and information.
sumgai , newey , JohnH , reTrEaD , thetragichero, Yogi B and other decision makers; Now it's up the management/board at Guitarnuts2, to decide if you want to cease this opportunity or not. This could also generate a whole lot more traffic to Guitarnuts2 and thereby increase the advertising value and revenue for this site. I can give you all the contact information, legal suggestions, etc. and from there on it's an Guitarnuts2 internal project to launch it. / Chris V, Sweden

Yes, that's exactly what I said , but Phostenix has now given this forum permission to host his entire site with images and all. I have access to all the diagrams/images and I'm just waiting for the management here to accept Phostenix generous offer.
So, it's not about creating a link to his old site. It's about hosting a fully functional copy of his complete website (with diagrams/images).

Yeah, his website was extremely popular and deserves a better fate than just sinking into oblivion.
Now, I am just the man in the middle here, sitting 5.400 miles from Phoenix, so how do we approach this project? I need a few contact points and their email addresses.
To whom should I send the login to Phostenix dropbox account, so that you can download all the 373 images to your own image server? Also, who will take responsibility for downloading all the text pages from Phostenix site? Finally, who will relink the images to their respective webpage and launch the read-only, archived website to the community? / Chris
