Bug Report

Please use this page to alert me if you notice something wrong with the site.

In particular, dead links and missing videos* can be fixed very quickly, once I know about them.

Please do not be afraid to post multiple bug reports. You are doing me a favour when you point out when something is wrong with the site!

You are also doing everybody else a favour, because I will rectify the problem and save others from dead links, missing videos, and so on.

*Any videos which were originally posted to YouTube but have since been made ‘private’ can be reuploaded to Vimeo for the benefit of users of this site.

I have all of my videos saved (on more than one hard drive) so it requires very little effort to reupload a video, once the request has come through.

In time I plan to reupload all of my videos to Vimeo for the benefit of Full Members of this site who might like to go back through the archives.

In the meantime, I will reupload videos in piecemeal fashion, as requests come through.

You can see Archive material here.

    Hello Jon,

    I recently signed up, but when I try to access some of the content, I always get the following message:

    “Your Freeloader membership will be activated as soon as you confirm your email address.Important! You must click on the confirmation URL sent to werdeschurke@gmail.com before you gain full access to your membership.”

    I never got one and don’t have the option to resend it – what now?

    best regards,

      Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I have manually validated your account. Can you now see the Freeloader material when logged in?

      Thanks Hando, fixed now. For some reason, the images were not displaying when embedded from the original source, so I have simply uploaded them to my own server.

      Some time ago I got into the habit of always uploading images to my own server to avoid this very problem, but prior to that I would normally embed them from the original source.

      In time I hope to go back though every single older article/series and change every embedded image into a locally-hosted one, in order to future-proof them.

      So much to do, so little time.

    Hi JLB,

    A very minor thing…

    The link for part-1 of ‘Burning the ‘Library of Alexandria’ takes you to part-2. I tried it on a couple of different browsers and the same thing happened. You can get to part-1 by the links in part-2, just not via the ‘Written work’ list.

    Loving your work on the History Hoax!
