The team members have been notified via PM. One of the projects, the Unofficial Morrowind Patch, will be moving to AFK Mods.

Even before I got to this point, I wanted to find a new host for the wikis. Vorians spoke to Enodoc and he has agreed to host our wikis on the UESP wiki farm. He's just waiting for me to give him the backups.

I need to find a shared hosting service for my cattery site, so I may resurrect the forums in some form in the future. We are working on developing games for mobile, so TAL might be rebranded and repurposed. It might be fun to return to modding when TES VI is released.

TAL are now a defunct site and downloading mods there seems impossible.

Just a heads up: the domain looks like it's been compromised (not sure if the server, domain, or something else). It's now leading to a questionable site selling medical supplements so I'd advise not going to it for now.

I saw that !

But I also noticed much of what was on TAL has now been incorporated into UESP Wiki
https://en.m.uesp.net/wiki/Morrowind_Mo ... and_Guides

Apparently it is part of Morrowind Modding Wiki, which has not been created yet

It's mostly to let folks know not to follow the links above. :)

The Wayback Machine works and I have already tried that a few times, because it's impossible to visit the forum due for being offline.

Could you update the links so that no one accidentally visits the malicious site?

ok  I thought for a moment you were referring to the Wiki Link, which though not complete appears fine

:)

Enjoy

No worries. My main concern is that someone clicks the link to see the topic or site without realizing the issue :)

Before the site was taken offline, I managed to download all of the public posts that were then currently available

Apparently it has not shut down yet - I was just on and it was all working fine  ?

Do you mean the Internet Archive? That's still up (and I don't see it going down anytime soon) but the original site was shut down back in November :)
