Hmm...updates for the Home page?
« on: December 08, 2016, 16:56:50 »

About The Mod Archive:
https://modarchive.org/index.php?article-about

Well, it's been close or even 9 years since this was last updated...m0d has left us (mostly, if not entirely) and a new member has joined the crew. I don't even think TMA 4.0 takes so long to finish, unless it is stable by itself. Descriptions can be updated, the Nostalgia tab be expanded and maybe bring hosting compos back? (I'm sure some people will appreciate that.)

Quick Introduction to Modules:
https://modarchive.org/index.php?article-modules

Needs updating, especially the Recommended Players tab. Some of the trackers that are put on the page might be discontinued, fell through or outdated with the respective platforms (such as CocoModX). I would love to see some other trackers recommended for each platform, be it Windows, Mac or Linux rather than sticking to what I can handle in my 'comfort zone'.

Articles:
https://modarchive.org/index.php?articles

Might need to update this one too. It has been under construction for...how long? Maybe links to tutorials can be put in place for beginners to master the art of tracking too. Sadly, I see that all the Artist Interviews are Old. Maybe give it a relaunch sometime? I'd hate to see that dwindle away in the midst of time.

Thanks for reading

And who's going to host them?

I don't see anything that needs to be updated there, at least for Windows/Linux. I'm not an OSX user so I have no idea what's available there.
Long story short, we cannot and do not want to provide an exhaustive list, but rather something to get people started with listening to modules on their favourite platform.

It is eternally under construction, as there can always be new material. ;)
