No, this is not. The vast majority of all the threads here can't be viewed, same with the old.smwcentral.net archive, and to be honest, this is by no means a new discovery, I'm pretty sure most of us know about thye wayback machine by now.
This actually gives me an idea: I want to track down as many post-wipe hacks that were approved before the 2008 hacking as possible to reupload, and reassess pre-wipe hacks that may be quality enough to be worthy of keeping (...which I'm assuming is close to zero.) The archive doesn't give me close enough dates to the incidents as I'd like to be as thorough as possible so KTB, if you have more information (preferably complete lists) then let me know. Otherwise, I will try to find what we don't have from what I see on the nearest dates in the archive.
Just look above you... If it's something that can be stopped, then just try to stop it!
As I tried to tell you on IRC (I have a feeling you didn't get it though), here is a list of all hacks on the site in the closest archive before the date you were looking before (the ArBe attack in which all the hacks got removed, for those curious and didn't understand what Cou meant).
I included the author and hack name, with the occasional warning that they didn't have an account here currently (although that part specifically I may be incorrect at at some points). Hopefully this will help recover them somehow, although at this point I'm kind of doubting it considering there was some huge thing to recover them all.
Glancing at this list, the only hacks that I recognize are by AlexNo and Gamma V. I seriously doubt any of the "pre-wipe" hacks are worth tracking down and testing for quality if they aren't currently in the hacks or legacy hacks section.
Edit: I have found a torrent that has ALMOST all of these. The problem is, a few are missing.
"Kirby World 1" (I have Kirby World 2, but not 1)
"Luigi and Dinomar: Grisba's attack demo"
"SMB6 - Bowser's Attack"
"SMW - The New Threatener"
"SMW Super Mario Land 2, 6 Golden Coins Demo"
Good job SRH, but I'd prefer it if you linked all of those hacks so we have better means of looking through them and such.
Actually, that should go for others too. If you have a hack on that list that hasn't already been found, PM me or post the link here and I'll add some kind of "found" tag or whatever on the hack on the list. They can then be re-evaluated by the hack mods and, if they're good enough, probably can be put back in the hacks/legacy section.
After going through all that and comparing it to the list I have, a good majority of those have been found and put into a folder that I'm using to keep track of them.
However, a number of them I still don't have (or in a couple places with SRH's thing, things that LOOKED kind of similar but I wasn't sure). :/ Here is the new list:
Luigi and Dinomar: Grisba's attack demo wario / Alessio
SMB6 - Bowser's Attack Manuz / 1621
SMW - The New Threatener uNkNowN5642 / SyStemkraSh
SMW Alternate world DEMO (fix) Tama Yoshif
SMW MQ5 Alex No
Super Mario Braw World Manuz
Super Mario World Project DC Happy the dog 2
Super Mario: Vacation at Crystal Archipelago Lunar Yoshi / Lunar Wurmple
Super Mega Mario World Demo Yoshi86UP / YoshiDDR
Super Yoshi's World DEMO cyphermur9t
ThunderSpeed's Semi-Generic Super Mario World Hack ThunderSpeed / Caitlin
unnamed hack Vaporeon / carsr4carpeople1
As usual, if anyone happens to have these or knows where I can find them I'd appreciate that.
Bumping with purpose. I would have replied promptly if I had known of this topic sooner.
I was the sole 'seeder' of the torrent. Completion was impossible due to some metadata and broken files. There were three independent releases of the hacklist actually, and I cobbled together the files I could find to try and attain a good percentage way after these died, to help others out who got to them late like I did.
Checking KTB's list, I looked through some archives provided to me and was able to match all but 2. here they are. *EDIT* Remaining 2: click
A couple days ago, I threw together all of archive.org's snapshots of the hacks page. Duplicates were permitted if they contained alternative information. Maybe it is of interest here. http://bin.smwcentral.net/u/24209/hacklist.rar
What? I gave you those 3 hacks, and said you need to wait until a later time before requesting more. After that, you had the bad idea of demanding "all" of the hacks by sending me six character-maxed PMs of a copy of the entire list I had compiled from archive.org snapshots (3 POSTS ABOVE), duplicates included. It's clearly impossible to fill such a request, and you don't seem to get that some of what you are asking for simply doesn't exist anymore. Don't be so greedy and quit bothering me about it.
*Edit: I suppose I must clarify that the torrent is not mine. I'm just seeding it. And I will not be linking to it, since that opens a can of worms for everybody here.
*Edit 2: The person I replied to deleted his posts.
