What happen to the BSR site?


 Share

Recommended Posts

I just went to the IntellivisionLives.com site and it redirected me to an Intellivision shopping site which seems to be the Intellivision Productions, Inc.'s online store.

 

However, I do not see links or ways to access any of the rest of the content, like the history pages, etc. I did find it by searching directly for "intellivision history" and got a link to the old BSR site, which appears to still be there... for now.

 

It seems nobody will maintain the BSR history and other contents. :( I guess this is another casualty of Mr. Robinson's passing, where there's nobody with the time/interest/desire/passion to keep the community and its magnificent history alive, other than to run the online store.

 

I feel sad now. I miss Keith. I wish whoever owns the properties to invite the Intellivision enthusiast community to help in maintaining the sites. I know I would volunteer.

The home page was badly out of date. I hope they replace it with a nice new home page with all the links to the old pages. I really like those old pages even though they haven't changed much in years.

 

Me too, but it is not clear to me if they took it down to re-design it, or just because they don't want to be bothered with updating it.

Is this what you're looking for?

Not really, more like this:

https://web.archive.org/web/20140715124119/http://www.intellivisionlives.com:80/history.php

 

 

 

I can't check it now, but surely it's preserved in archive.org's Wayback Machine?

 

I wasn't so much concerned about it being lost forever; I know it's preserved in Archive.org, and links to it can be found in Web search results. I was much more worried about what it may mean to remove access to it from the IntellivisionLives.com page. It suggests those pages are not valued enough to keep up or update, which is just one more ember extinguished from the torch Keith was carrying. :(

http://www.intellivisionlives.com/site.shtml

 

All the links seem to still be active except the "Home Page".

 

Well of course, if you get to it directly. The site was not deleted. My concern was that the URL http://www.IntellivisionLives.com/now redirects automatically to the store without offering you the home page with links; suggesting that the rest of the site will not be maintained and that only the store is what matters now. That's a sad development, in my opinion.

 

 

 

OK, that seems to be the site now. I don't ever remember seeing "IntellivisionGames.com" before. All advertising material always directed people to "IntellivisionLives.com" as the "official" site. Perhaps that changed?

 

Thanks!

I did the redirect for them, and it's only temporary. The site is being revamped, and everything will be preserved (yes, they do care about all of it). I'm not the person doing the redesign, but I archived everything locally for safety. And you're right, you can still get to the content on the mirrored intellivisiongames.com and astrosmash.com domains.

 

As far as their plans... look for an update on Tuesday. I can't provide any specifics now, but you shouldn't have any trouble finding it.

Thank you, nurmix, for that wonder news! That is what I was really hoping to hear. It does make sense to redirect to the store during the transition, to keep the lights on while the rest of the site is re-designed; it just wasn't clear that that was the intent, so thank you for the information.

 

This is very exciting news indeed and I can't wait to see what comes up. Be sure to thank them (whomever them may be) for keeping the Intellivision spirit, and Keith's relentless passion for it, alive. :)

 

Best regards,

Tuesday's announcement is going to surprise a lot of people (in a very good way).

It must be Tuesday in some parts of the world... :ponder:

That's true. But the people responsible for making the announcement aren't necessarily in those parts of the world... but you'll likely be hearing about this from multiple sources so I can't say for sure.
