FilePlanet is no longer hosting new content, and "is in the process of being archived [by IGN]."
FilePlanet hosts approx. 220,000 download pages of game-related material (demos, patches, mods, promo stuff, etc.), which needs to be archived. Not all pages contain files, so the file count is less; however, given the media-heavy content, it's still a sizable collection. We'll want all the arms we can for this one, since it gets harder the farther the archiving goes (files are numbered chronologically, and Skyrim mods are bigger than Doom ones).
To help: Download and run Schbird's script. This grabs the files and the source page, for its metadata. You'll need to know what the start and stop parameters are - get those numbers from Schbird in IRC.
There doesn't seem to be much else on the site other than the files; if you're aware of anything the script is overlooking, let us know.
