I've discovered a preservation emergency!
« on: October 16, 2015, 10:50:06 AM »
The page for the SMA4 e-Reader cards links to this site, which I remember being about the only place one could see legible scans of all the Japanese cards. Unfortunately, it seems the site's been dead and apparently nobody's noticed. Does anybody know how long this has been like this, and did anybody bother to preserve the scans in some form besides submitting them to the wiki? If not, then that means we lost a perfectly good source.

Wayback archive didn't cache the relevant images.  Well *bleep*.

This page seems to have most of the cards but they're tiiiiiiny.
Rest in peace, Walkazo.

I found Importaku's YouTube channel and dropped him a comment, but it's a shot in the dark as to whether he'll actually respond or not.  :-\

Emergency solved!

I talked to Deezer of TMK, and by the good grace of the stars it turns out he saved Importaku's web page all those years ago!  :lol:

So without hesitation, I took the liberty of uploading all the scans to Imgur. By all means, please take these and spread them as far as possible!

Have these been uploaded by anyone yet? I can't see them anywhere myself.
