If I understood your last post correctly you want to close the download section for Armada all together due to limited space at your new hosting company as well as having a problem in sorting out on what to keep.
May I suggest an alternative?
Quote problem 1
I don't know Armada well enough to go though the files myself, what to keep, what to merge or what is just trash.
Since there are hardly any members playing Armada 1 I would close the Armada 1 section completely, but keep the official releases, tools and tutorial sections. These are essentials. Some of the tools work in Armada2 also.
Also I suggest that you keep certain models (ships and stations) which do not exist in the Armada 2 section. These are only a few. They are ports from Birth of the Federation as well as some other Star Trek games and not available elsewhere.
This seems to be harsh but I guess a clean cut is unavoidable.
I can help there. I could take a look at the files and create a spreadsheet (either in excel or open office) with recommendations.
This would also solve a large part of problem 2
As to the Armada 2 section:
I would recommend to keep it as it is at the moment for various reasons:
Armada 2 is still being played by some and they are downloading stuff from http://armadafiles.com/
regularly. So the community is not dead. You have some unique models in the A2 section which are not available elsewhere. So closing would be a loss.
When Fleet Operations 4 is released it will be compatible with the sod format according to the things I read on their website. So modders of this game may still use this website.
For the Complete Conversions section I recommend that you contact the authors if there are several versions / files of their mods, they may help on what to keep and what to delete.
As to MSFC, their rules make it impossible to use for most people that just want to download things.
“Being such a close community, we do have some restrictions, including all users required to be registered before being able to post as well as all members requiring to have participated in the community for sometime before being able to download our modding files to name the main ones. This is done for both the protection of our members and to encourage new members to get involved with the community “
As I see it MSFC is to limited at the moment to act as a possible alternative to your site.
Perhaps MajorPayne can help ?
He has a profound knowledge and may be able to help sort out the complete conversion section of A2
