3kingdoms has been down for many years. You can still access many of the biographies through the waybackmachine. No reason to remove those links.
Threestatesrecords is still up and running. The site is perfectly fine. If links from here don't work, those links would need to be fixed here. Everything on the other site is functional.

The Threestatesrecords linking is complicated, James has to manually alter each one's coding in encyclopaedia to get them to work

If the links are dead for good it may be better to remove them unfortunately.
Yeah, those websites are long dead. Sometimes you can find the old biography by copying the link and heading over to the WayBack Machine online. And you're right that we should do something to clean them up. Probably we should find working links to something like the WayBack Machine archive copy, where possible, and link to that.

I encountered errors in the Submission forms on this page:
http://kongming.net/email/

(The General Email Form and Report Errors gave me a validation code error and the Submission Form said something about the URL not being available)

I'm not sure if it's my system but I did try two browsers (Chrome and IE). I can provide more details if needed.

p.s. I am so grateful that this site exists with such good material!

In Ze Rong's link to Liu Yao's biography, the entered link is incorrect. For some reason, one of the dashes is the wrong dash. It should be https://threestatesrecords.com/2016/08/12/49-1-liu-yao/

James probably is going to be overwhelmed by this... :oops:

Officer search bar does not work.

Some of the links around kongming.net does work and some doesn't.
Might need major help from everyone updating the deadlinks and pointing out pages with errors and outdated info.

Thanks! Some of the officer/biography stuff is next on the plate for repairs. :)

Right now, there is so much broken, that there is plenty I know needs fixin’. At some point I will run out of broken things and I’ll send a note out to anyone watching in the community that I’d like feedback on anything remaining that seems to need fixes.

An exception might be something which is working except for an odd or more specific scenario. Something like that, I probably have not noticed.

Random heads up. A lot of content on KMA is now working properly and the list of broken things is getting a lot smaller. So broken things will gradually become more likely to be something I missed.

Not even sure what to do with all the dead links to lost websites...

maybe keep the links in a broken link section

their urls are still useful, one may use archive.org to check it their previous contents were archived

I would be willing to expand the encyclopedia's descriptions if you wish to by the way, I would be very happy to expand the information about really obscure guys along with others, and my ability as a (mediocre) translator aids too. I wouldn't help much with the Romance part since I never really looked into the novel in depth.
I have something to say. Men of arms, heed it well.
