Re: Hijacks & Other Content Changes - Report Here

The banner says it's "Temporarily Not Available" so we've temporarily unlisted it and will watch for a comeback.

Thanks for noticing it, things like this help us improve our directory.

Well, I'm still looking, so here's another couple:

#1 http://www.bevnetwork.com/links.html is listed in https://curlie.org/Recreation/Food/Drink/ but gives a 404 Page Not Found.

Maybe the link is just broken, but from looking around www.bevnetwork.com it seems to me that the most of the content is only available to subscribers. Does a site like that deserve to be listed in https://curlie.org/Recreation/Food/Drink/ ?

#2 http://www.barshots.com/ ("Barshots Bar Guide") is also listed in https://curlie.org/Recreation/Food/Drink but it's dead - in fact it is so dead there aren't even any DNS records for www.barshots.com ...

also if you check out http://www.bevnetwork.com/pwr.asp you'll see phrases such as

Suggested Retail Price: Vinyl: $19.95 Leather: $45.00 + $4.00 (S&H) for the first book, $.35 each additional book S&H calculated for U.S. standard shipping only Quantity discounts available

Shouldn't this site be somewhere under https://curlie.org/Business/ ?

The bevnetwork site has now been moved off to Business, since its focus has obviously changed. Barshots.com has been deleted since the domain expired two months ago.

Thanks for letting know. :)

Hi webdoctor!

Have you considered applying to become an editor? It looks as though you'd be good at it! :)

In this category, numaTek Web Design appears to no longer be a web design company. I only see web hosting and SEO services.
Thank you, the site has just been removed from Design and is on it's way to hosting, and you will see the change when the public version of ODP updates.

All done, except for

http://www.visitaruba.com/attractions/sunandfun/sailing.html
http://www.visitaruba.com/ppa/jrpeterson
http://www.resortres.com/Group_ao.htm

I was unable to find these URLs anywhere in our directory, and there is no evidence that they have ever been listed. The changes I have made will not show up until the public pages are re-generated, which won't happen until staff have fixed the bug that's currently holding it up.

Thanks for reporting them all.

It wasn't that easy to find them - they didn't show up in the normal way. :star:
