You are quite right. I lament the loss of the hundreds of sites that have gone down. While Doom has been pretty well maintained, it seems Quake exists in bits and fragments. Sites like Quaddicted and here are important since they are the main places preserving the information of the past.

I am a bit insane, but my particular mindset is that even the worst level is worth checking out. I mean, I don't usually feel that way while playing the level mind you, but I am of the mindset that every little bit of content is important and should be preserved.

Glad to meet you as well Spirit, your site is no less of a massive accomplishment. To categorize things as well as you have, to upkeep such a database, is quite the impressive task. Thank you very much for all the compliments. I put my all into trying to detail things as accurately as I can. I am absolutely glad the effort is recognized and liked.

You are quite right. I lament the loss of the hundreds of sites that have gone down. While Doom has been pretty well maintained, it seems Quake exists in bits and fragments. Sites like Quaddicted and here are important since they are the main places preserving the information of the past.

I am a bit insane, but my particular mindset is that even the worst level is worth checking out. I mean, I don't usually feel that way while playing the level mind you, but I am of the mindset that every little bit of content is important and should be preserved. This is pretty much the only way I can work my way through an endless stream of generic multiplayer levels with only the occasional thing to shoot at :P
